Berry + Hemp Seed Smoothie
Hemp seeds, also called "hemp hearts," are seeds from the hemp plant and are a great source of healthy fats, which allow our bodies to absorb all of the vitamins and nutrients they need.
When it comes to nutrition, hemp seeds are a wonderful source of:
- Omega 3 fatty acid: helps with brain function, supports the cardiovascular system, fights inflammation
- Omega 6 fatty acid: supports the brain, metabolism, and bone health, helps skin and hair growth, fights inflammation
- Protein: used by the body to make muscles and tissue and can act as a source of energy when needed
- Vitamin E: a powerful antioxidant with anti-aging properties that has shown effective for treating cancer, arthritis and cataracts
Our favorite brand of hemp seeds is Manitoba Harvest, but you can also usually find hemp seeds in the natural section of your local grocery store.
