Health Conditions that Can Be Treated with Hemp Oil: Healthy Life

 

 

Hemp seeds are from the same species of cannabis but have a different variety. However, when you buy hemp oil online, many retailers mention the little amount of THC, the psychoactive compound in marijuana. Seeds of hemp are highly nutritious and constitute a rich amount of healthy fats, minerals, and proteins.

 

Boosts Healthy Heart

 

Heart diseases have become the most common reason for death worldwide. There are many medicines which can keep your heart safe but there is not any assurance that does it actually works. However, intake hemp seeds may reduce your risk of heart disease. Nitric oxide is a gas molecule that makes your blood vessels dilate and relax by lowering blood pressure. The seeds of hemp oil contain rich amount of amino acid arginine, which produces nitric oxide in your body.

 

High Amount of Nutrition

 

Hemp seeds are very nutritious and they have a mild, and nutty flavor. They are also known as hemp hearts and contains over 30% of fat and gamma-linolenic acid. Meanwhile, hemp seeds are also rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3). They are also a great source of vitamin E and minerals such as sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, phosphorus, and potassium. The best thing about buying hemp seeds online is that they can be consumed raw, cooked or roasted.

 

Healthier and Plump Skin

 

The oil extracted from the hemp seeds has shown remarkable traces of relieving from dry skin, inflammation, alleviating itchiness and other skin disorders. The seeds also carry the rich constituents of polyunsaturated, essential fatty acids and a 3:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3. There have been positive studies when hemp oil was given to people with eczema for improving blood levels of essential fatty acids.

 

Hemp Seed Alleviates the Symptoms of PMS and Menopause

 

Studies say almost 80 of women suffer from painful periods while triggering emotional and physical pain. The pain caused by premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is due to the hormone prolactin. To reduce the effect of prolactin, hemp can be found effective as it has Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) that produces prostaglandin E1. In a study, women who were intaking 1 gram of essential fatty acid through hemp oil or seed have experienced a significant downfall in the pain. It is good news for the ladies who have not seen any visible benefits in reducing the PMS pain even after following a proper medication or other PMS therapies.

 

Proper Digestion

 

You will be stunned to hear that hemp seed is highly rich in soluble and insoluble fiber, containing 20% and 80 percent. Meanwhile, healthy digestion requires a sufficient amount of fiber. Therefore, adding the required amount of hemp oil or seed can help your body to boost the amount of fiber while regulating blood sugar level.

 

Conclusion: There are many countries where using hemp oil seems not to be easy. But, fortunately, there are countries that are undertaking its countless benefits by adding it into the staple food to provide excellent nutritional value. They are highly rich in healthy fats, high-quality protein and several minerals which makes them appreciated by the therapeutic industry. However, make sure the bottle of hemp seed which you are picking does not contain more than trace amounts of THC (< 0.3%), which is an active compound of marijuana.

A Little Lemon Can Go a Long Way

Let’s Talk Lemons.

My mom has been talking me into drinking my water with added lemon juice or a fresh lemon – but it hasn’t worked out well because I don’t particularly love the taste of lemon water. It isn’t that i don’t like lemons, but for some reason my taste buds don’t like lemon in my water  (but if forced to, I would drink it). Who else feels this same way? 

I suppose it doesn’t matter what I like, because it doesn’t make it any less beneficial, as a matter of fact, a little lemon can go a long way in your drinking water. 

 
 
  • Boost the immune system
  • good source of potassium (which helps with depression and anxiety for some)
  • Aids in digestion
  • said to help the skin as well (blemish free)
  • helps with weight loss – aids your metabolism
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Used as a detox method
  • regulate blood sugar
  • Relieves heartburn 
  • Studies have said that it can relieve kidney stones
  • liver cleanser

Tell me, do you add lemon water to your daily nutrition?

Sweet Potatoes!

Sweet Potato, Red Purple, Pile Up, Fruit

That is right! I don’t like sweet potatoes, never have and probably never will. Why? because they are gross. I don’t see how people can enjoy them so much, even most of my family love it, except for my two siblings. Another thing is, I see everyone all over social media who is into “eating healthy” and fitness sharing pictures of sweet potato dishes – I am over here like.. seriously.. -_- 

Part of me is jealous, because I wish I could stand to eat them, but then part of me is like.. hahahahahahhahaahhaha have your sweet potatoes; I will continue to eat my russet (even if isn’t the “best” choice). Anyways after seeing so many pictures, dishes, recipes dealing with sweet potatoes, I decided I would make a blog post about it (in a good way) and share with you the benefits of adding sweet potatoes in your diet and then maybe you can decide why it is such a popular choice for health experts. 

 

Why, Oh why, The Sweet Potato?

 
  1. They are inexpensive
  2. available all year long in most places
  3. High in vitamin B6
  4. Vitamin C
  5. Vitamin D
  6. Have Iron and promote a healthy immune system
  7. Good source of magnesium
  8. Potassium
  9. Do not cause blood sugar spikes
  10. Anti-inflammatory nutrients
  11. Antioxidant nutrients
  12. promote healthy skin and hair
  13. good for stress because of the magnesium
  14. good source of dietary fiber
  15. Have said in studies to help prevent cancer – and protect against the effects of aging

Also, Yams and sweet potatoes are two different things that look a lot alike and many people do not know this, YAMS are rarely sold in most stores in the U.S and as said before sweet potatoes are widely available. 

So for these reasons, I wish I could eat sweet potatoes and enjoy it, hell I wish I liked YAMS too, but I don’t. Do any of you not like sweet potatoes? do any of you love them? share your thoughts on sweet potatoes in the common section and don’t forget to share this post on social media so people you know can be informed about this lovely food!
