506: Food As Medicine – Hemp Hearts

Aug 2, 2018

Today we are talking about hemp hearts! I recently started incorporating these as a substitution for other nuts and seeds do the recommendations in my Viome assessment. Hemp hearts contain all 9 essential amino acids, they don’t contain oxalates or phytates (as most nuts and seeds do) and they contain both omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. They’re a rich source of minerals and they have a great nutty flavor!

Today we’ll talk about their omega profile and what makes it unique as well as considerations for buying hemp seeds and different ways to incorporate them.

In October 2019, our relationship with Thrive Market changed. They decided to put their marketing dollars in avenues outside of podcasting but we still think they’re a good choice if you’re looking to save money on health & personal care products.
