Reignite Your Energy with Hemp

The breakthrough book Radical Metabolism, by New York Times bestselling author and nutritionist Ann Louise Gittleman, is a radical departure from current nutritional trends, revealing the secrets to revive a sluggish metabolism and treat thyroid issues. If you’re a “slow loser” who wants to finally shed those stubborn pounds and keep them off with hemp oil as the centerpiece of this program, then this book is for you.

Hempseed and hemp oil are unparalleled when it comes to creating a radical metabolism! This is because your metabolism depends on the health of your cells, which in turn depends on those all-important essential fats—the omega-6s and omega-3s. Hemp contains a near-perfect ratio of 3:1 omega-6 linoleic acid to omega-3 linoleic acid.

5 Facts About Hemp

Hemp may even do more to promote weight loss than MCT oil! It contains a variety of compounds that ignites your body’s metabolic fires and flushes away excess fat. Hemp also causes the body’s tissues to let go of excess fluid, thereby reducing bloating and edema.

A good portion of hemp’s omega-6 fat is in the form of GLA (gamma linoleic acid), well known for its ability to encourage weight loss, sustain energy, reduce cravings, lower inflammation, and improve blood sugar and lipid profiles. GLA also provides substantial anti-inflammatory effects.

Hemp oil is the epitome of heart-healthy foods, largely due to its sterols. Sterols are plant-based steroid alcohols known for lowering cholesterol and platelet aggregation. Hemp oil also contains tocopherols and phytols which reduce your risk of heart disease and Alzheimer’s. This bountiful plant also boasts plenty of other valuable nutrients—antioxidants, vitamins A, C, and E, beta carotene, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and sulfur. Hemp supports the immune system by promoting healthy intestinal flora and anti-aging protection for skin, hair and nails, and its ample DHA is fabulous for your eyes and brain.

You can harness the amazing power of hemp by consuming its oil or seeds, more often termed hemp “hearts” because their fibrous hulls have been removed. Hempseeds are among nature’s most nutritious seeds, comprised of about one-third beneficial fats and one-quarter protein—and a complete protein at that with all 20 amino acids in a highly digestible form. They are delicious with a flavor reminiscent of pine nuts! Just two to three tablespoons of hempseeds provide 11 grams of protein.

Make sure your hemp oil and hempseeds are raw, organic, and unrefined, and keep them refrigerated. Do not apply heat because even modest cooking temperatures will denature their delicate fats. Use hempseed oil as a base for your salad dressings or drizzle over veggies. Hempseeds can be sprinkled on anything—soup, salad, basmati rice—or even blended into smoothies to bump up your protein and healthy fats.  Hemp oil can also be applied topically to your skin to decrease inflammation and smooth out wrinkles.
