Seeds

Hemp seeds are an excellent source of protein – they can containt up to three times as much protein an soy beans. What makes hemp seed especially unique is the fact that over 65% of the entire protein content is made up of globulins which are typical proteins of grains and legumes and are responsible for the transport of copper, fat, tyroxine and iron in the body as well as having a precursory function as building blocks for the formation of antibodies.  The seeds also contatin all of the eight basic essential aminoacids in nearly perfect ratios, allowing them to be fully absorbed by the body and thus aiding it to form antibodies and boost one's immune system.
