Hemp—a new superfood

Try Adding these Versatile Seeds into Your Favorite Foods

IdealBite.com reports that hemp seeds are set to take health food aisles by storm. Evidently, this new superfood not only helps combat heart disease, but also makes skin softer, nails stronger and hair shinier. It’s nourishing for children, too, because it’s easily digested.

Unique among plant foods, these super-seeds offer a complete amino acid profile, have an ideal balance of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, and provide an impressive amount of trace minerals. With one of the highest concentrations of protein in the plant kingdom, hemp seeds could be a dream-come-true for vegans and vegetarians.

Try out hemp’s rustic nutlike flavor in granola, nutrition bars and baked goods. These versatile seeds also blend well in smoothies and breakfast shakes.
