Hemp seeds are a rich source of plant based protein and contain a complete range of essential amino acids. Why is this important? If you’re vegan or avoiding dairy, hemp seeds can provide some of the vital protein that you need for growth and repair. Hemp seeds are also rich in Alpha Linoleic Acid (ALA) which is one of the Omega 3 fatty acids – good for brain and heart health.
