A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry summarized its nutritional properties as follows:
Hemp seed has high levels of fatty acids, protein, insoluble fiber, and a rich set of minerals and vitamins. It is considered to be perfectly balanced with regard to the ratio (3:1) of two essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) for human nutrition, linoleic (ω-6) and α-linolenic acids (ALA) (ω-3)." .
The study also summarized the growing body of research in existence that demonstrates their medicinal properties:
In addition to its nutritional value, hemp seed demonstrated positive health benefits, including alleviating constipation, lowering cholesterol, cardiovascular health benefits, immunomodulatory effects, and dermatological disease amelioration effects.
Hemp seed extracts showed also strong antioxidant and antiaging effects and the potential to improve impaired learning and memory." .
Titled, "Characterization of Lignanamides from Hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) Seed and Their Antioxidant and Acetylcholinesterase Inhibitory Activities," the new study explored the hitherto unexamined presence of secondary metabolites of hemp seed in order to identify bioactive compounds that could help explain both their observed and purported health benefits.
The bioassay results of the current study suggest that #hemp seed, with lignanamides as nutrients, may be exploited for their bioactive potential, because compounds with both antioxidant and acetylcholinesterase inhibitory activities are good choices for multitarget anti-Alzheimer's disease candidates."
Another function of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors relevant to Alzheimer's disease is their hypothesized ability to both mitigate and potentially reverse the distinctive pathological protein folding patterns or "plaque" known as amyloid beta. This so-called non-classical, non-cholinergic function has also been witnessed for another component of cannabis, the pysychoative #cannabinoid#THC, which was found several years ago to have significant anti-Alzheimer's properties. #uglybynature
I've been craving all the turmeric...such a comforting flavor to me🤗& that color gets me every time✨mix 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1 cup @popandbottle vanilla bean almond milk & 1 tsp @gaiaherbs golden milk blend. refrigerate over night + your fav toppings! I chose @georgiagrinders cashew butter, @purely_elizabeth cashew coconut granola, beets, razz, banana & cinnamon.
HAPPY Tuesday sweet friends💛
Many of you are not feeling super positive and are feeling unsettled. It is ok. Let yourself rest. I will give you the advise that I have been giving many in the last 2 days: 1. You are sensitive right now for good reason, listen to that. 2. Be clear of what needs Soul alignment in your life 3. Ground: be barefoot outside, use stones that ground you (my favorite these days is shungite) 4. Pay attention to whether your vocation is truly aligned with your soul -
If you want additional support, listen to the meditation I did yesterday or book a session with me #soulalignment
