There are relatively few plant-based foods which provide a complete source of protein, making it valuable for any vegetarian or vegan diet.
Benefits of omega-3 fatty acids are well known. Hemp seeds are a great source of multiple essential fatty acids like linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3) in an ideal ratio of 3:1. As the body is unable to produce these acids, they must be absorbed through the diet, such as hemp seeds.
Vitamin E is a group of fat-soluable vitamins with antioxidant effects. Vitamin E helps to prevent inflammation, prevent coronary heart disease, support immune function, support eye health and lower the risk of cancer.
Vitamin E is also great for skin when applied directly, which is why we've developed our own face mask, H2 Honey Face Mask with Hemp Oil
