1. The Good Kind of FatsFor vegans and vegetarians, coming across larger amounts of essential fats in plant material alone can be truly difficult, as most people receive their fat intake from eating fish, dairy and eggs. That’s why hemp can be so beneficial for vegans and vegetarians.Hemp seeds are approximately 1/3 essential fats alone and a 30g amount of hemp seed contains 21% of your daily fat intake. Fats found naturally within hemp seeds include Omega 3 ALA, which help with brain function, connective tissues and depressions; as well as Omega 6, which has shown to help prevent rheumatoid arthritis and decrease symptoms of ADHD. These fats can not be found naturally inside the body and so must be consumed as part of a healthy and balanced diet. And as hemp seeds become more and more popular, it is easy to source and include these beneficial fats into your diet. Hemp seeds tend to be quite inexpensive due to its easy cultivation, and can usually be found at your local health food shop or online.
