How Hemp Nutrition can Make You Smarter

Updated on February 5, 2012


Essential fatty acids along with other fats make up around 60% of the brain. The more omega fatty acids that can be supplied to brain, the slower it will age. After hemp nutrition, it would appear that fish is the next best option. The benefits of hemp nutrition are that the omega-3 in hemp is bio-available. The fatty chains of hemp are easily digested by the stomach and directed towards the brain immediately. Flax seeds and walnuts are also good a source of Omega-3’s but still not as potent as hemp.

Fatty acids are also used in the brain to coat the myelin sheaths of the nerves. The myelin sheath coats the nerves just as how rubber coatings protect electric wires. Therefore, the benefit of hemp nutrition ensures that electrical signals in the brain are not diverted or interrupted.

      Respect cclitgirl, your right. Omega 3's are heavily neglected.

      Natural medicine! Yes! :) The western diet is quite deficient in Omega 3's. And, sadly, I don't like fish...I was raised in the mountains far from the sea and never quite acquired the taste for it. Voted up!
