Advantages of Eating Hemp Seeds/Hearts
There is a response to hunger in the world, to over-fertilization, to global warming, the overuse of fossil fuels, obesity, poor health and the weakness of our cardiovascular systems. The answer is hemp. Here are some reasons why..
- Hemp seeds/hearts are recognised as being one of the best sources of plant-based protein in the world (and more importantly – one of the most delicious!). The components of hemp proteins are the most digestible in the plant-based world – they allow full absorption of the full range of amino acids like no other.
- Hemp seed oil contain an incredibly well balanced composition of the essential fatty acids that form the basis of our immune system.
- Hemp seed is an extraordinary source of antioxidants, minerals, carbohydrates, fiber and Vitamins. It also contains the perfect ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 suited for the human body (1 part Omega 3 to 3 or 4 parts Omega 6).
- The seeds and all of their by-products are all hypo-allergenic. This means that unlike foods like wheat, nuts, dairy etc, hemp won’t cause any adverse effects.
- Hemp comes at a lower cost than all other sources of protein.

Questions about Nunti-Sunya hemp seeds..
Hemp seeds (almonds) are in fact a relatively stable food. Due to the naturally high level of vitamin E, the effects of rancidity and oxidation are kept at a distance by the seed itself.
Our product must be consumed within 14 months from the date of production.
Same for oil, oxidation factors are light, heat and long exposure to oxygen. Seed powder or “hemp protein” is much less sensitive to oxidation.
Avoid light, heat and long exposure to oxygen.
Low temperatures reduce the effects of oxidation.
Keeping the husked seeds wide open on the table is not a good idea. It’s good to keep a small amount on hand, obviously, from the time you store the rest in a cool, dry place to keep the product fresh. Too much heat harms the preservation of essential fatty acids.
Keeping in a glass jar on the worktop is not good either for long-term preservation. However if you consume seed kernels daily, then keep this amount handy and make sure to keep the rest in a cool, dark place.
In order to have the freshest product possible, we have selected the Doypack to condition the seed and the seed powder because it blocks the entire spectrum of light and maintains a certain freshness thanks to its PET composition. By storing the seeds properly husked, your product remains fresh for over a year.
For the oil, we selected a ‘MIRON’ glass bottle which is the only type of glass that blocks the entire spectrum of light and prevents oxidation by light. If the bottles are stored in a cool place: below 15°c, the oil will retain its exceptional nutritional properties for over a year.
Our oils are pressed slowly in cold conditions without exceeding 20°c and immediately set to decant cold and protected from the light in stainless steel tanks. If you want to store your oil longer, it will have to be refrigerated, and it will keep its properties beyond the prescribed 14 months.
Hemp Protein in Detail:
The hemp seed is a gift from nature. Nowhere else on earth can we find a seed with such a complete and rich source of protein.
Hemp protein contains a total of 18 amino acids – 9 are essential and 2 are semi-essential and are not produced by our body.
‘Edestin Protein’ makes up 65% of hemp’s protein content.
Hemp seed can have up to a 36% protein content and a protein called ‘Edestin’ makes up around 65% of the total protein content – this specific protein aids digestion, is low in phosphorus and is considered to be one of the main protein components used in the construct of our DNA.
Almost all enzymes, antibodies, hormones, hemoglobin molecules and fibrinogens are created directly from edestin.
The Alpha, Beta and Gamma globulins, intrinsic to our immune systems are also created by edestin. Gamma globulins are our first line of defense against foreign microbes – they destroy everything our white blood requires us to – nano bacteria, viruses, bacteria, cancer cells, dead tissue and more.
Hemp and hemp seeds are one of the best sources of Edestin on the planet – forming the building blocks of a incredibly effective immune system.
The remaining 35% of hemp protein content is made up from ‘Albumin’, another quality protein which is also found in egg white.
Hemp Or Soy Protein?
Hemp seed is just behind the soybean for the amount of protein per gram, however, hemps proteins are far more digestible. Unlike the Soybean, hemp seeds contain no ‘trypsin inhibitors’ which block the absorption of protein.
Hemp protein contains no ‘oligosaccharide’ found in soybean that can lead to digestive problems.
Essential Fatty Acids For Our Cardiovascular & Immune Systems.
Hemp seed contains an average of 30% fat. 80% of these fats are Omega 3 and Omega 6 (polyunsaturated fats). Due to their anti-inflammatory properties, these fats are incredibly beneficial to our cardiovascular and immune systems.
Moreover, these fats do not make otherwise they help burn body fat. Hemp seed oil feeds the intestinal walls, the kidneys, the lungs, the brain and the eyes.
Omega 3 and 6 are present in hemp seed oil in a ratio of ‘1:3’ or ‘1:4’, which is exactly the ratio recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Breast Milk, Spirulina & Hemp: The Highest Sources of Omega 6.
Human breast milk is the highest source of Omega 6 (GLA). Spirulina comes in second place, and then hemp. The advantages of hemp over the others is that it’s much easier to consume!
Omega 6 (GLA) is an anti-inflammatory amino acid and helps inhibit the production of histamine (too much histamine provokes allergic reactions). More importantly, Omega 6 within the hemp seed assists the whole Endocrine system in building hormones and brain tissue.
Minerals & Vitamins:
During the growing process, the hemp plant absorbs large amounts of minerals direct from the soil. Hemp seeds, depending on the soil, may contain:
Phosphorus, calcium, potassium, silica, magnesium, iron, sodium, sulfur, manganese, zinc, Copper, platinum, boron, nickel, chromium, silver, lithium. They can also contain large amounts of vitamins, commonly E, C, B1, B2, B3 and B6.
The outer shell of the hemp seed contains Chlorophyll (the green antioxidant).
Hemp nutrition great for reducing consumption of meat & fish.
Hemp seeds are the perfect food for vegetarian diets as well as for all those who wish to reduce their consumption of meat and fish. The proteins of hemp will meet all the protein and essential fatty acid needs of the body. Human with no bad fats from meat or stomach problems due to soy.
