There's nothing new about green smoothies these days. Adding spinach or kale is excellent, but I'm here to talk about the star of the show: hemp.

Hemp seeds are one of the most nutritious foods on earth. Not only are they a superior source of protein, but hemp also contains a wide variety of minerals, vitamins, omega-6 fatty acids, and omega-3 essential fatty acids.

Here are some of its extraordinary benefits via happy hemp:

-Hemp is a complete protein source. It has more protein than meat, fish, and tofu.

-The essential fatty acids in hemp can reduce cholesterol and prevent plaque buildup in arteries.

-Hemp reduces inflammation that can cause poor blood circulation and high blood pressure. 

-Hemp can help improve your memory and aid in preventing diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

-Hemp seeds can improve your mood- alleviating symptoms of depression, reducing anxiety, and decreasing stress levels.

-The fiber that is contained in hemp seeds help keep you digestive tract on track. 

-Hemp promotes healthy sleep.

-Taken daily, hemp promotes weight loss.

Adding a spoonful to your smoothie, yogurt, or salad not only gives it a super-food boost, but also provides a great nutty flavor.

Start adding hemp seeds to your daily diet and see vast improvements in your overall health and well-being.
