Calcium-Rich Plant Foods Better for Bones than Dairy

Updated on May 5, 2020

Hemp seeds are an excellent source of plant protein, providing all essential amino acids that your body can't manufacture on its own. Hemp is also a rich source of essential fatty acids - both omega-3 and omega-6 - that support optimal functioning of your cardiovascular and nervous systems. Contrary to popular myth based on the common origin of hemp and marijuana, it's virtually impossible to test positive for marijuana use from eating a small amount of hemp seeds on a regular basis.
