New Year, New You: Add Hemp To Your Daily Diet
Kickstart 2016 with a strong focus on health and nutrition by adding hemp to your daily routine.
Hemp seeds are rich in healthy fats and amino acids, aiding with digestion (the protein and fibre in hemp slows digestion, providing long-lasting energy and satiety), heart health (hemp seeds are a great source of arginine, GLA and omega 3, which have been linked to reduced risk of heart disease) and skin care (3:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 may benefit skin diseases and provide relief from dry skin by reducing inflammation and acting as an emollient when applied topically).
Sprinkle hemp seeds on just about anything, eat them on their own or add the shelled seeds to a breakfast or post workout smoothie for extra protein power. Two tablespoons of hemp seeds provide almost seven grams of protein, the equivalent found in two egg whites. Mettrum Originals, the sister company to Mettrum, Canada’s only vertically integrated supplier of premium cannabis products, offers hemp-based food, skincare and home products designed to give Canadians an easy way to integrate hemp and its benefits into their lifestyle. The Mettrum Originals line includes custom baking mixes specifically formulated for use with medical cannabis (or delicious on their own), as well as functional foods, such as hemp seeds, protein and fibre powders, snack bars and more.
In addition to Mettrum Originals’ health food products, the brand also offers a growing beauty line, which includes body oils, creams and lip balms which are all made with hemp seed oil and packed with amino acids, fatty acids, antioxidants, minerals and protein designed to absorb all the moisture and nutrients possible to fight the dry air and harsh temperatures
