Hemp seeds, also known as hemp hearts, are a highly nutritious food that can help lower triglycerides and bad cholesterol, while raising good cholesterol. They are sold in many online stores along with other hemp products such as hemp milk or hemp protein powder. Hemp seeds are not the same as CBD oil, which is used to treat pain and problems, and they do not contain cannabinoids. However, if you take blood thinners, you may want to be more careful when consuming hemp seeds, as they inhibit blood platelets and may cause a risk of bleeding. These roasted hemp seeds can be used as a topping for salads or yogurts and can be used in other recipes, such as avocado on toasted bread.
Researchers have also discovered that treatment with hemp seed oil can reduce the survival rate of fibroblast-like synovial cells in MH7A rheumatoid arthritis and, at certain doses, even promote cell death. Hemp seeds are edible, contain approximately 30% oil and are an important source of protein, fiber and magnesium. Raw organic hemp seeds have a wonderful nutty flavor similar to that of pine nuts. If you plan to follow a healthy diet with “natural” products, such as organic seeds, make sure that the hemp seeds you buy are certified organically grown. Hemp seeds without shells are equally nutritious and their consumption increases the total percentage of proteins, the level of essential fatty acids (EFA) and also reduces the percentage of carbohydrates.
