Hemp seeds prevent diseases

The highly effective antioxidants contained in the hemp seeds, such as. B. Phytol, fight so-called free radicals. These are aggressive molecules that attack body cells and tissues and in this way lead to cell damage. On the one hand, this accelerates the aging process and, on the other hand, leads to a wide variety of diseases. Therefore, hemp seeds show a comprehensive preventive effect on the organism, because they strengthen the immune system and protect our cells from degeneration.

Hemp seeds fight inflammation

Another important property of antioxidants is that they counteract inflammation and thus prevent, for example, arthritis, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, cancer, etc., diseases that are all associated with chronic inflammatory processes.

The gamma-linolenic acid contained in hemp seeds also inhibits the release of inflammatory substances in the body. In addition, this fatty acid is the starting material for the production of prostaglandin, a tissue hormone that is found everywhere in the body and regulates various processes there, including controlling inflammatory reactions.
