Hemp Seed Powder, (Cannabis Sativa) by dis natuurlik. is a superfood that has a rich nutritional profile, it contains high levels of protein, fibre & healthy fatty acids, including Omega 3 & 6.

Hemp seed powder is a complete source of protein, containing all nine essential amino acids, fortunately for us, this powder contains all nine as your body cannot produce these, they are considered to be the building blocks for proteins.

Using the hemp seed powder in your diet helps you to easily absorb these in a convenient bioavailable way, among the plant-based foods, there are relatively few sources of complete proteins.

This unique trait makes it a valuable addition to a vegan or vegetarian diet, also hemp seeds are very nutrient-rich in an amino acid called arginine which has shown various health benefits for the heart.

Our bodies love to live in balance, too much of a good thing is not always a good thing.

When it comes to polyunsaturated fats like Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s the ratio between the two is crucial, most of us tend to consume too many Omega 6’s and not enough of the Omega 3’s, adding this hemp seed powder to your diet increases the Omega 3’s which will promote a healthier balance between the two.
