Recent evidence suggests that hemp proteins contain the potential to repair the DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) that naturally damages in humans as we age.

How Hemp Can Help You

Benefits of HempAlthough most people know the body is composed of DNA, few people likely realize the damage to DNA that occurs over the years. It is similar to damage on a vehicle over time as you drive it.

While most DNA damage is minor, it can be more significant, for example becoming such that it shortens a person’s lifespan. Thankfully, the latest research reveals that proteins within hemp seeds can help the body to repair its damaged DNA that could not otherwise be fixable on its own.

The two proteins in hemp seeds that have this extraordinary potential are Edestin and Albumin. Edestin is found solely in hemp seeds; researchers have shown this particular protein helps to keep the human immune system strong and reduce stress. As for Albumin, it helps strengthen tissues that are integral within the body.

Hemp is 65 percent protein, with 35 percent of it being Edestin protein. Yes, given Edestin’s value, hemp seed and hemp seed oil can help with human DNA repair. Hemp seed is from the hemp plant called Cannabis Sativa, which is the same species as cannabis.

Hemp seed is easy to digest. It contains Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fats, which have benefits for the heart, as well as inflammatory advantages. Hemp seed also contains valuable antioxidants, zinc, iron, fiber, several vitamins (B1, B2, B6, D, and E), as well as copper, sulfur, calcium, and much, much more. Hemp seeds are also a great source of protein, even more so than chia seeds and flaxseeds.

Hemp seeds are easy to add to your favorite meals, including yogurts, salads, and bread. The seeds can also be used for protein powder, milk, butter and finishing oil.
