Why Hemp?

There is lots to love about Ocean Green’s new hemp capsules, and today we want to share a few of our favourite benefits with you!



The Ultimate Plant-based Protein Source

Hemp seeds are high in protein to aid muscle growth and recovery. In fact, hemp seeds are the leading protein source across common grains such quinoa, chia seeds, buckwheat and linseed. Hemp is also a rich source of amino acids, which form proteins that carry out all the important functions in our bodies. We can produce some amino acids on our own, but others we have to get from food which are commonly known as the nine essential amino acids. All amino acids can be found within hemp seed capsules, including the nine essential aminos and hard-to-get gamma linoleic acid (GLA).



The Cholesterol Balancer

Our bodies are in a constant battle to balance ‘good’ and ‘bad’ cholesterol. High levels of bad cholesterol are known to increase the risk of developing heart diseases by clogging blood vessels and restricting blood flow. The Western diet is, unfortunately, no help as it is high in fat, sugar, and cholesterol.

However, hemp is rich in ‘plant sterols’ which can reduce the amount of bad cholesterol floating in our blood. The plant sterols do this by stopping cholesterol absorption in our gut, basically: keeping the bad stuff out of our bloodstream. Ultimately, this helps to improve our cholesterol ratio and support better heart health.



The Skin Hydrator

Ocean Green Hemp capsules can help promote beauty from the inside out! Hemp has been shown to support hydrated, healthy skin by increasing water retention. Interestingly, a study in patients suffering with atopic dermatitis showed that participants experienced an improvement in symptoms (dryness

and itchiness) when they took two tablespoons of hemp seed oil daily. In addition, hemp seed oil out performed olive oil as a supporting skin treatment.
