Hemp seeds are considered by leading researchers and medical doctors to be one of the most nutritious food sources on the planet. A recent report funded by the Canadian government states that hemp protein is comprised of 66 percent high-quality edistin protein, and that hemp seed contains the highest percentage of this of any plant source. Hemp also contains three times the vitamin E contained in flax.
Because the human body produces no Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), it is important that EFAs be consumed on a regular basis. It is estimated that more than 90 percent of Americans take in too little of one of the most important EFAs--omega-3--which is found in flax, walnuts, chia, and hemp seeds. EFAs are the "good fats" that doctors recommend as part of a healthy, balanced diet. Shelled hemp seed is comprised of 45% "good fats" in an ideal balance of Omega-3 Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), Omega-6 Linoleic Acid (LA), "Super" Omega-3 Stearidonic Acid (SDA), and "Super" Omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). Shelled Hemp Seed delivers these EFAs in a balanced 3.75:1 ratio.
Nutritional Yeast - Organic (6 oz.) - Nutritional Yeast is a source of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and it's a complete protein.
