Raw Shelled Hemp Seed / Hemp Nut / Hemp Hearts / Hulled Hemp Seed is one of nature's perfect foods - a Super Food. This is one of the most potent foods available, supporting optimal health and wellbeing. Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds provides a broad spectrum of health benefits, including: weight loss, increased and sustained energy, rapid recovery from disease or injury, lowered cholesterol and blood pressure, reduced inflammation, improvement in circulation and immune system.
Hemptons Shelled Hemp Seed is absolutely the best of its kind. It is organic, raw and 100% THC-free! None of the goodness has been taken out; none of the live enzymes have been killed. Nutty, tasty, rich, delicious (taste varies slightly from batch to batch, depending on the humidity and moisture level of each particular harvesting season). We've taken the best part of the hemp seed, the inner nut, removed the hard shell and sealed it in a hermitically re-sealable pack which ensures that the seeds are sealed as soon as they are hulled and remain fresh until consumed.
Hemptons’ Shelled Hemp Seed is grown without herbicides or pesticides from Non-GMO Hemp Seed and mechanically cold processed, packaged without additives or preservatives.
See our recipe section for amazing recipes on how to incorporate Shelled Hemp Seed into your diet.
Shelled Hemp Seed is a naturally balanced nutritional source - a whole food, containing Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's), Protein, Fiber, Carbohydrates, natural vitamins and minerals, but no cholesterol. The ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 EFA's in the oil component is in a perfect 3:1 balance for optimal human health.
Shelled Hemp Seed can be eaten by those unable to tolerate nuts (it is an achene, not a nut). It also does not contain gluten, lactose or sugars.
By including Shelled Hemp Seed into your daily diet, expect to be hunger free for longer. As Shelled Hemp Seed is a good, raw, vegetarian source of protein (encompassing all 20 Amino Acids including the 9 Essential Amino Acids the body is unable to manufacture) and all the Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) the body requires. It is an excellent source of a particular EFA - Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) - which can assist in weight loss if consumed as part of a diet designed to assist in doing so (CLA (3 300 mg per day) facilitates weight loss in persons afflicted with Obesity (it stimulates the process of thermogenesis and lipolysis in Brown Adipose (Fat) Tissue). CLA may also reduce the deposition of additional fats in existing adipose tissue.
Expect a reduction in cravings for foods with stimulants, sugars, starches and saturated fats. These types of foods, if eaten regularly, promote obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, strokes, diabetes and increased susceptibility to cancer and a whole spectrum of diet-related and chronic diseases.
But, please be realistic though - a reasonable guideline for a physically active person would be a diet consisting of 60% carbohydrates, 20% protein and 20% fat. An endurance athlete would need a diet consisting of 60% carbohydrates, 15% protein and 25% fat; a body builder 55% carbohydrate 30% protein and 15% fat, and a skier 60% carbohydrates 15% protein and 25% fat. So, as Shelled Hemp Seeds are high in Oils and proteins, make sure to take this into account when working out your daily dietary requirement - and regulate your dietary intake to your activity levels. You can't expect to eat like an endurance skier, when you are sitting behind a desk all day - and wonder why the Shelled Hemp Seeds you've added to your diet, is not doing the trick in fighting that ever-growing tyre around the midriff.
Analysis indicates that Shelled Hemp Seeds are unmatched in nature for their balance of all required proteins, all essential fats and most vitamins - the building blocks necessary for body maintenance and repair. Analysis also indicates that these beneficial nutrients are concentrated in Hulled Hemp with minimal quantities of carbohydrates, saturated fats and sugar.
Clinical Studies Support Long-term Health Benefits
Many clinical studies demonstrate the importance of proteins and essential fats. Many other studies associate excessive quantities of sugar, saturated fats and carbohydrates with chronic disease. There are also many clinical studies that indicate that hemp products are effective in reducing inflammation and improving circulation - factors of importance in the cure and prevention of disease. A large percentage of our older customers have selected Hulled Hemp in desperation because of failing health: within three months they often experience significant improvements in cholesterol and blood pressure. Diabetics, especially, report that circulation improves.
The inflammatory characteristics of many chronic diseases, particularly arthritis, are often much reduced. Various disorders of the digestive system are also often much improved.
The experiences of our customers are consistent with the magnitude of clinical studies that relate to these issues. Many health care professionals have tried Hulled Hemp and are having success with their patients. Most of these professionals attribute their success to the superior balance of proteins and essential fats in Hulled Hemp and to the relative absence of sugar, carbohydrates and saturated fats.
