Not only is hemp high in Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) but it’s also very high Proteins and minerals in particular magnesium, which is key for metabolizing those EFA’s. Hemp also contains manganese which is good for ligament and tendon pain, zinc which is important for boosting the immune system and iron which plays a role in oxygen-carrying red blood cell production. All of these factors make hemp an excellent anti-inflammatory food.
I’d recommend adding hemp to your diet whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan or otherwise, it’s a serious nutritional powerhouse and it’s very easy to incorporate into recipes. These delicious bars are a place to start!
