Hemp Milk: Why You Should Try It


 If you're reading this, you may be thinking to yourself, "I didn't know there was hemp milk!" or "How is it even made?".  Well, hemp milk does exist and it is made from hulled hemp seeds; I guess the real name for it should be "Hemp Seed Milk". Either way, hemp milk has a lot of benefits.  For one, it has high levels of omega-3 fatty acids.  These fatty acids have been shown to protect against certain cancers and heart disease.

Hemp milk doesn't have as much protein as regular milk, but it can have a good amount of calcium if you choose one that is calcium fortified.  If you can't drink dairy, hemp milk is a good option for you, along with coconut or almond milk. If you are looking for a boost of omega-3 fatty acids in order to fight inflammation, hemp milk might be for you!  There are a variety of brands that make hemp milk, but you can even make it yourself.  Check out the video below to see how!
