Organic Hemp hearts contain the full range of healthy hemp nutrients including minerals such as manganese, magnesium, iron and zinc. As well as being anti-inflammatory, hemp hearts are a complete protein source with all 20 amino acids including the 9 essential, and have a 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 Linoleic Acid and Omega-3 Linoleum Acid – the optimum ratio for human health! Omega 3s are good for their anti-inflammatory, anti-depressive, brain-boosting benefits. Some research even suggests that omega 3 ALA fatty acid can convert to DHA which is extremely beneficial for healthy brain nerve and neurological functions. Omega 6 contains Gamma Linolenic Acid (or GLA) which acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory while encouraging skin growth and new cell generation.
#Why We Love Them
I first discovered the Brothers Green products at a local wellbeing day in Wānaka in the form of a homemade bread that I got to dip into some of the delicisious hemp oil. The Brothers Green are a local crew of three (real) brothers, Brendan, Brad and Micheal, who are on a journey to champion plant based diet. They are also using a wonder plant, hemp, which can be used for it’s fibre and seeds to make an endless range of health, textile and housing products. Read more on their website.
