Hemp seed is by far the most nutritious seed in the world. It has the highest protein content of any plant, although technically soy has a little bit more protein (two percent more per weight). However, there are a plethora of problems with soy, such as the excess of estrogen-like chemicals in it and phylates, which inhibit the absorption of nutrients and can drastically decrease your efforts to become healthier. It is unfortunate that soy is often thought of as the miracle vegetarian food, when in fact it is hurting people. People must embrace hemp seed as the true perfect food, as it has absolutely no drawbacks and has the highest quality nutrients of any plant in the world.

Since there are many ways to get hemp seed into your diet, there is no excuse not to do it. The most obvious way is eating the food plain. One could order a large package, eat it right out of the bag, or mix it into other things. Popular foods to mix the seed into are yogurt, cereal, and ice cream. Seed is certainly a fine way to get your hemp protein, but there are so many other avenues as well.

The next most popular route is hemp protein powder. This is simply milled hemp seed, and companies can analyze the powder and control exactly how much protein there is. There are hemp protein powders that have extra fiber or extra protein. Depending on what someone’s goal is, they should choose one form over the other. Someone trying to put on a lot of muscle should choose the extra protein, while someone trying to improve their digestion would want the one with fiber.

Interestingly enough, there are unique forms that hemp seed is being turned into. I am sure you were surprised by the hemp ice cream, but what about a hemp seed concentrate? Such a product did not exist until recently, but it is useful because the seed is concentrated into a liquid form, and can be easily taken very quickly. Instead of having to eat a lot of seed or powder, you can take it in that form. Many people enjoy this route, although I personally recommend combining all of them for maximum hemp nutrition.

If you do choose to use many methods of getting your hemp nutrition, you can expect to get strong at an extraordinarily fast. Hemp is a whole, raw food, and you cannot eat too much of it!
