Good Cause Wellness Organic Hemp Seeds, 2 lbs.
Easy to Use, Complete Source of Protein and Omega Fatty Acids
One Simple Sentence
Organic Hemp Seeds are soft seeds that add nutty flavor and protein, fiber and essential fatty acids to any meal.
What Are Hemp Seeds?
Organic Hemp Seeds are the ultimate life-sustaining food. They are
nutritionally complete and perfectly balanced. Hemp Seeds are non-GMO.
Hemp Seeds have a wonderful nutrition profile. Three tablespoons of hemp seeds provide:
- Iron, 16% RDA
- Phosphorous, 45% RDA
- Zinc, 23% RDA
- Magnesium, 48% RDA
- Manganese, 110% RDA
- Thiamin, 25% RDA
As with all hemp products imported to the U.S., our hemp seeds are
tested and validated to contain 0.00% THC, so they will not cause a
false positive drug tests or psychoactive effects.
In addition to
its nutritional values, hemp is one of the most sustainable crops,
providing a wide variety of raw materials that can replace
unsusatainable fossil fuel waste, virgin forest extraction, and
intensive cotton production.
What Are the Benefits of Hemp Seeds?
Complete Protein With Optimal Balance of Essential Aminos
Hemp is a complete protein source
providing all the essential amino acids. In fact, its total protein
content is 33% (about as much as soy).
Hemp Seeds provide
essential amino acids like arginine (12%) and histidine (27%), which are
important for childhood growth and development. Hemp also contains the
sulfur amino acids methionine (23%) and cysteine (16%), which the body
uses to build enzymes. Athletes and body-builders love hemp for its
fairly high levels of the branched-chain amino acids.
particularly rich in a protein called globulin edistin (65%) as well as
albumin. These proteins are structurally similar to those in human blood
plasma. These proteins prime the body to produce proteins called gamma
globulins, which are crucial components of the immune system.
Great Source of Fiber and Low in Carbs
Hemp seeds are very low in starches and
sugars so they are perfectly suited for low-carb diets. Hemp seed's
minimal carbohydrates comes primarily from fiber. This fiber is both
soluble and insoluble, making it optimal for supporting both digestion
and heart health.
Cholesterol Free and Heart Healthy
Hemp seeds are cholesterol-free. They
naturally increase the amount of good fats your heart needs to thrive
while drastically cutting the bad fats that can cause heart disease and
high cholesterol. These effects may be due to hemp seeds' content of
beta-sitosterol, which inhibits cholesterol absorption.
Supplies Ideal Ratio of Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids
The ratio of omega 3s to omega 6s is
very important to vital body functions. Average diets contain far too
much omega 6, with almost no omega 3.
Too much omega 6 can lead
to chronic inflammation, immune deficiency, cardiovascular disease,
hormone imbalance, and possibly neurological problems.
consumption of omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce the risk of
strokes and heart attacks, as well as protect brain cells from
progressive diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Hemp
seeds may also help fight off symptoms of anxiety and depression.
seafood is a major source of omega 3, seafood is increasingly loaded
with toxins and depleting our oceans. This is why plant-based sources of
omega 3 (chia, flax, sacha inchi, hemp, walnut, spirulina) are becoming
increasingly popular as a way to counteract high levels of omega 6.
chia and flax, which are high in omega 3 and low in omega 6, hemp seeds
offers the perfect ratio of omega 3 to omega 6. As long as you're not
already consuming too much omega 6, then hemp may be the perfect way to
maintain a balanced intake of these two essential fatty acids. You can
also investigate cutting down on consumption of other omega 6 sources
(such as nuts) and replacing them with hemp seeds.
Supplies Anti-Inflammatory Beta-Caryophyllene
Hemp seeds' balanced omega 3/omega 6
levels may not be the only source of anti-inflammatory effects.
Beta-caryophyllene, another substance found in hemp oil, seems to also
have anti-inflammatory benefits.
Provides Anti-Inflammatory, Metabolism-Boosting Gamma Linolenic Acid
Hemp seeds contain the rare omega 6
gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), which the body coverts into prostaglandins,
which may also help to regulate inflammation.
A study in Finland
demonstrated that regular consumption of Hemp seed oil increased blood
concentration of essential fatty acids and significantly improved
symptoms of atopic dermatitis (itchy, inflamed skin).
GLA's effects on a special fat called brown adipose tissue (BAT), many
studies suggest that it can increase metabolism and weight loss. This
effect may also be due to GLA's interaction with the body's sodium
potassium cellular pump, possibly increasing calorie burning at the
Extremely Easy to Digest.
Unlike soy and many grains and seeds, hemp seeds have no phytic acids–the anti-nutrients that block mineral absorption.
many vegans and raw foodists soak nuts and seeds to enhance
digestibility, that's unnecessary with hemp seeds. Just eat them by the
handful or add to smoothies and meals throughout the day.
How Are Hemp Seeds Grown and Harvested?
Our hemp seeds are grown in Canada. Our supplier works with a group
of about 20 hemp farmers, who are also shareholders in the company This
relationship not only rewards the hard work of these caretakers of the
Earth, it also motivates them to keep quality, flavor, and nutrition as
high as possible.
Our organic, GMO-free hemp seeds are harvested,
pressed, packaged and stored with utmost attention to ensure premium
nutrient content and freshness. After harvest, the hemp seeds (in-shell)
are collected in a state-of-the-art processing facility for grading and
storage. The seeds' hard outer shell is machine-cracked and run through
a series of mesh sequences that separate the shell from the nutritious
inner kernel, or the "hemp heart" as it's sometimes known. All this is
done at raw temperatures to protect delicate omega oils from oxidation.
Batches are regularly tested for purity and quality.
