Did you know that hemp grain has a uniquely nutritious fatty acid and protein profile? It contains an optimum nutritious ratio of Omega 3: Omega 6, (1:2 ratio). This ratio is most closely matched by fish oil, however hemp has the added benefit on the environment of being a much more sustainable source for these fatty acids. In addition, hemp’s Omega 6 lipids contain Gamma Linoleic acid, a unique acid that can have positive impacts on conditions like excema, weight regulation, and cardiovascular issues.
On the protein side, the grain contains all of the 9 essential amino acids, comparable with soy, however hemp amino acids have shown to be more digestible. In addition hemp grain contains healthy amounts of minerals such as phosphorous, manganese, iron, calcium, zinc, magnesium and copper. This makes it an ideal health supplement for both animals and humans.
