Spicey Dukkah w Hemp Seeds

Hemp is an amazing source of both protein and Omega-3 fatty acids, two nutrients which are important for supporting our moods.

Protein

Getting enough protein is incredibly important for your moods, as protein is required for the synthesis of neurotransmitters. L-tryptophan is the amino acid essential for making serotonin.   Furthermore protein is essential for its role in the regulation of blood sugar as hypoglycemia is linked to depression.  It’s important to include protein in all your meals and snacks.

Omega-3

Evidence suggests that the consumption of foods containing Omega 3 including hemp seeds is associated with reduced incidences of depression. Omega-3 essential fatty acids are significantly lower in people, they are important as the brain relies on essential fatty acids both functionally and structurally.  Omega 3 works as an anti-depressant by exerting an anti-inflammatory effect.
