Hemp is an excellent nutritional source of Omega–3 and 6 and amino acids, including the eight essential ones. The presence of these nutrients helps regulate such common conditions as: cardiac function, insulin balance, mood stability, skin and joint health.

Omega–3 and 6 and amino acids are not made by the body so they need to be acquired through the diet. Hemp seed is processed into oil, protein powder or hulled or shelled seed and can be used in the daily diet to deliver an excellent source of these nutrients.

There are many different healthy hemp products available today that provide an excellent source of nutrients. These produces include: lactose–free milk, salad dressings, protein powders, dips and nutrient bars to name a few.
