Yesterday a friend of ours met this guy who had all sorts of illnesses and then developed high blood pressure. He went to his doctor who of course wrote him out a prescription for a drug to control it. He had heard about Hemp Hearts and went to the local hemp shop to check it out. After reading nothing but good things he decided to hold off on the drugs and tried hemp hearts instead. The next trip to the Doctor showed his blood pressure had dropped to a normal level. Doctor said to him see the drugs worked. No he said and explained the hemp heart solution. The doctor had never heard of it and didn't have a response. So my friend went to the hemp store and bought some hearts. He then went to his naturopath and had his blood pressure taken. He will now try the hemp hearts and return to check his blood pressure. Upon hearing this of course we had to try it as my other half has high blood pressure and chlorestral and I am not far behind. This morning I mix some in with yogurt for him to take for breakfast at work and low and behold he calls me from work and he lost it! I made cream of wheat cereal to have mine on. I tried to make it in the microwave and added to much water so I threw it out and made an orange juice, yogurt shake with some hemp seed and threw it back. They say that... Hemp Hearts in comparison with other foods: * Contains more required amino acids (proteins) than milk, meat or eggs. * Is a complete protein rich source, much more balanced and digestible than Soy products. * Contains about 47% oil, 78% of which is omega 3 and 6 , the essential fats. * Has all the essential or omega fats required for human health. * Contains several times more omega 3 essential fat than any fish. * Provides more energy than energy bars, without their sugar and with much less saturated fat. * They are suitable for those unable to eat gluten, sugar, nuts, and meat. * Excellent for those troubled with constipation. * Perfect for those avoiding carbohydrates. * A 42 g serving (4 tbsp) contains 240 calorie energy from 15 g protein,15 g polyunsaturated fats (11.4 g omega 6 and 3.6 g omega 3), 2.7 g mono-unsaturated fats, 2.1 g saturated fats, 2.5 g fiber, 4.5 g carbohydrates, 2 mg iron, 31 mg calcium, 3.8 mg sodium, 3.8 mg vitamin E, 956 IU vitamin D, .42 mg vitamin C, .05 mg B6, .58 mg vitamin B1, 1.6 IU vitamin A. So off we go on another adventure into our health. It seems to me that the Marijuana plant is a great medicinal plant and that it shouldn't be feared but embraced.
