Editors Note

Good Day Hemp Lovers,

It's been a while since I've written and thought it was time to sit down and ramble for a bit. As you know hemp is gaining much popularity, especially in the food industry, mainly because hemp's nutritional content is unsurpassed. In light of this, I've decided to focus on the healthy aspects of adding hemp to your regime.

Cleansing and Detoxifying

Cleansing and detoxifying the body is a hot trend right now and more and more people are purchasing products to help rid their body of toxins, however, some of these products are harsh and severe with long term complications.

Here Meghan Atkinson, a Certified Nutritionist with over 10 years experience in holistic and natural health describes how hemp can help the body rid itself of toxin naturally:

"A healthy digestive system is designed to naturally regulate and rid the body toxins. Yet, if the body doesn't receive adequate essential fatty acids from the diet, digestive function may be impaired, thus affecting the body's ability to eliminate toxins.

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Oil offers a perfect balance of the essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6, including Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), and is always cold pressed, unprocessed without the use of chemicals.

In addition, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Oil is a rich source of chlorophyll, which aids the body in building blood, eliminating gastrointestinal problems, clearing toxins and oxygenating the tissues.

The body must have a continuous supply of amino acids for proper function of the detox pathways of the liver. These pathways serve the important role of blocking toxins from circulating in the body.

If these pathways are impaired, toxins can sneak into the tissues of the body, causing inflammation, pain, and ultimately disease. When dietary protein is low, these pathways can get impaired and thus can lead to deficiencies in amino acids.

Hemp protein, however, is unique in that it is one of the very few plant foods that is a "complete protein", meaning that it supplies all the essential amino acids that body must obtain from the diet.

Manitoba Harvest Hemp Protein Powder is easy to digest and contains 50% protein by weight, making it the highest percentage of hemp protein available right now.

Dietary fiber is essential for absorbing toxins in the colon and preventing them from being reabsorbed in the body. Additionally, it provides the physical bulk for toxins to attach to, so they may exit the body through the bowels.

It is also needed to keep the bowels moving freely and to maintain a healthy balance of intestinal flora. In this respect, Manitoba Harvest Hemp Protein & Fiber Powder contains 14 grams of fiber per serving, which amounts to over 54% of the daily requirement."

So, what are you waiting for, start your detox today!
