Packed with nourishing protein and essential fatty acids, and suitable for a variety of meals and recipes. From smoothies and salads to breakfast bowls or desserts, hemp seeds are an excellent choice for anyone looking to eat healthier and incorporate more nutrients in their daily regimen.
Hemp seeds are full of essential nutrients
Shelled through a no-heat mechanical process that preserves the nutritional benefits of the plant, the hemp seeds produced by Elixinol are convenient, delicious and richer in protein and omegas than chia or flax seeds. A whole food with nutty flavor and tender crunch, hemp seeds are ideal for the busy modern life as they contain all of the essential amino acids, making hemp a complete protein. Besides providing the ideal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, hemp seeds are an excellent source of minerals like magnesium and phosphorus, and are a great replacement for animal sources of protein in vegetarians and vegans.
Hemp seeds are dense and nourishing, being perfect for pre- and post-workout meals, as well as for maintaining a healthy digestive system and elevating energy levels. Colored in a creamy white shade and providing only 140 calories per serving (180 grams), our seeds have a fresh smell and an oily texture. They are a light and tasty source of folate, vitamin B6, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin E, iron, calcium, zinc, copper and manganese.
Why are the vitamins and minerals in Hemp Seeds important?
Folate or vitamin B9 is needed for the formation of white and red blood cells in the blood marrow, for the carbohydrate metabolism and the production of DNA. Vitamin B6 is involved in a wide variety of functions, from protein metabolism to cognitive development and immunity. Niacin or vitamin B3 helps in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system and metabolism, and supports the brain function and health of the skin.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps in fighting against damaging free radicals and in preventing chronic diseases, while iron helps in carrying the oxygen from lungs throughout the body and prevents anemia. Calcium is needed for keeping the bones strong, ensuring the proper functioning of muscles and vascular contraction and dilation, as well as the nerve transmission and hormonal secretion. Zinc is required for immunity, DNA synthesis, healthy growth and wound healing.
Hemp seeds are an extremely versatile ingredient
Soft and buttery, the Elixinol hemp seeds are suitable for people of all ages. Although more nourishing when used raw, you can also add them to baked goods such as protein breakfast muffins.
These seeds will not germinate, so you cannot use them for growing your own plants. However they’re extremely versatile as they can be added to virtually any meal you prepare, from pasta dishes to pastries and stir fries. Delivered in resealable bags that maintain freshness, taste and smell for longer, our hemp seeds are organically produced, containing no additives or preservatives. They also make a smart choice for those on a low-carb diet.
