6. Digestive Health
People who consume adequate amounts of fiber lower their risks for many diseases including high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes. Hemp seeds contain good sources of both insoluble and soluble dietary fibers. There are 4 grams of fiber in a single 100 gram serving of hemp seeds. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and will form a sludge in the gut. It also has nutrients that will feed the good digestive bacteria.
This can also help to regulate cholesterol and decrease spikes of blood glucose. Insoluble fiber will increase the roughage and help food and waste travel throughout your gut. Eating enough insoluble fiber lowers your risk of developing type-2 diabetes. Supplementing with hemp seed oil can help reduce constipation, which in turn will help you feel better overall. Keeping your digestive tract moving is important for your overall health and fiber plays an important role in this.
