NOURISHING TIP

When blended, these seeds create a wonderfully creamy beverage.  Hemp seeds are high in fat and contain the perfect ratio of omega-3 to omega-6.  These fats are beneficial in reducing inflammation in the body and can benefit skin disorders (like eczema), reduce symptoms of PMS, and aid digestion.  Hemp is also an excellent source of protein – 25% of their calories come from amino acids!
