HEMP / CANNABIS 25,000 DIFFERENT USES 03 – Coffee
Hemp Coffee is the latest in a long line of healthy products for health conscious people. But, why trade in your average cuppa for hemp coffee?
Whether you’re new to hemp, or an absolute purist who swears by it in their daily diet, it’s important to know that hemp contains more omega acids than any other plant.
Why are Omega Acids important?
Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid or EFA for short. Omega 3 EFAs benefit the body by:
• Aiding Brain Growth and Development
• Strengthening Immune Systems
• Ensuring Healthy Functioning Nervous Systems • Reducing Inflammation
• Preventing and Improving the Effects of Mental Illness and Disorders
Omega 3 EFAs have also been known to act as preventatives for more serious diseases and conditions, having been known to reduce the risk of, and treat cancer.
EFAs are also known to prevent diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s and heart disease. In fact, the risk of a fatal heart attack is reduced by 10% with a higher intake of Omega 3.
If you don’t cook with hemp oil, or have difficulty finding time to cook omega-rich meals, hemp coffee is a great way of injecting just the omega boost you need into your daily diet.
Benefits of Coffee
For decades, nutritionists have gone back and forth on whether or not coffee is good for you.
Hemp coffee is made up of a blend of hemp seeds and coffee beans, so rest assured you’ll still get your morning energy kick, but with added health benefits too.
While drinking too much caffeine can lead to high blood pressure and other circulatory problems, there are several benefits to drinking coffee in moderation.
Helps Brain Function
You may have found yourself feeling like your brain doesn’t work right before your coffee. And while the boost from the caffeine does boost your alertness and cognitive function, coffee also has a host of long-term benefits.
Scientists from the Krembil Brain Institute discovered that coffee can reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Roasting coffee beans creates phenylindanes, which prevent the proteins that cause
those conditions from bonding to brain cells.
A separate ten-year study also determined that regular coffee consumption can reduce rates of depression.
Risk of Heart Disease
Coffee is also good for your heart. A study out of South Korea found that individuals who drank coffee regularly had fewer cardiovascular conditions.
Great Source of Fiber
Most people don’t get enough fiber. Fiber helps improve digestion, reduces the risk of heart disease, and often helps maintain a healthy weight. But, a single cup of coffee contains around two grams of fiber. And since most nutritionists recommend getting 28-30 grams a day, a few cups can go a long way.
Protects Your Liver
The liver is one of the most important organs in the body. It’s not very glamorous, but it spends all of its removing toxins from your bloodstream. Sometimes though, those toxins can end up poisoning your liver, causing cirrhosis or liver cancer. But studies have shown that drinking coffee can lower the number of enzymes that cause liver disease.
Benefits of Hemp
Like CBD oil, hemp has a whole host of health benefits. But because of marijuana’s taboo nature, many of these benefits haven’t been explored until recently.
However, in the last few years, science has uncovered a number of surprises.
Omega Fatty Acids
For the last decade or so, nutritionists have gone wild over omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
The benefits of omega acids are legion. They range from protection from depression and anxiety to decreased risk of heart disease.
These acids can even be used in hair care and skin care products to create strong hair and healthier skin.
Great Source of Protein
Hemp seeds are packed full of protein. Just two tablespoons can contain as much as 7 grams of protein.
Hemp seeds are so protein-rich that many health experts claim that they are just as effective as whey protein. Maybe more!
Hemp seed is especially popular among bodybuilders trying to avoid animal-based products. You might not realize it, but whey protein is a byproduct of cheese.
On the other hand, hemp is 100% vegan-friendly.
Even More Fiber
Like coffee, hemp is a great source of fiber.
In fact, hemp is so rich in fiber that Chinese herbal medicine has used hemp to treat constipation for centuries. And research shows that it actually works.
Rich in Other Nutrients
Hemp seed is also a great source of magnesium, iron, and potassium. These nutrients help nerve function, muscle health, bone strength, and more. Many people take supplements to make sure they get enough of these nutrients. But with hemp seed, you can skip the supplements and get them from a more natural source.
What Are The Advantages Of Hemp Coffee?
While the list is long and ongoing, these are the top 8 things that make Hemp Coffee much better than common coffee and a fantastic anytime beverage:
- It consists of more protein in every cup
- It uses Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids that are excellent for the brain and immune system.
- You will not get the jitters from Hemp Coffee
- Reduced ‘coffee headaches’
- No more upset stomach because hemp coffee is less acidic
- Less bitter taste
- Significantly reduces the opportunity of caffeine high and/or crash
- Due to the oily nature of the hemp seeds, hemp coffee remains fresh 2-3x longer than regular coffee.
Mix It All Together…
With all of the benefits of coffee and hemp, it’s no surprise that people have tried to combine the two.
While hemp seed oil is rich in benefit, it tastes slightly bitter. Many people find that adding it to coffee is a great way to ingest it. The coffee masks the bitterness with its own refreshing aroma. And for most people, a cup of coffee is more appealing than taking a supplement in pill form.
