In our local health food store they have just started selling hemp milk which caught me by surprise. It made me realise that all of a sudden I am seeing hemp food's everywhere now. It used to be that you could only find it in specialist stores or track it down online, but it seems that health-aware people have cottoned onto how good hemp is for you! So in case you didn't know already, here's the low-down on hemp, including some of our favourite hemp foods and how best to use them... Let's Talk About Hemp Why is Hemp good for you? - Hemp contains all twenty amino acids. - It's full of simple proteins that fend off toxins and strengthen immunity. - Hemp is a perfect three to one ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats. - Considered easily digestible. - A rich source of essential fatty acids, as well as containing vitamin E. - Good source of phytonutrients - the disease-protective element of plants.

You can easily start introducing hemp foods products into your daily meals by using simple products like hemp seeds and hemp oil. As part of a balanced diet you can be sure that it is doing you some good.
