Hemp Makes it SUPER!
Hemp is a super plant! There are hundreds, if not thousands, of uses for hemp including food, textiles like rope and clothing, construction material, plastics, fuel, animal bedding, and more. At Manitoba Harvest we’re focused exclusively on the seed, which we use to make delicious hemp foods.
Why eat hemp foods? It’s simple: protein and omegas!
Hemp foods are rich in protein and have all 10 essential amino acids. They also contain omega-3, omega-6, stearidonic acid (SDA), and the rare omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). What’s so great about GLA? Well, GLA has been shown to help with cholesterol, inflammation, skin and hair health, balancing hormones, and general heart health.
Plus, if that wasn’t enough, hemp foods also contain magnesium, fiber, iron, zinc, and phosphorous.
