Everybody is always talking about the latest cleanse. Juice cleanses are particularly popular. The trouble, of course, is that it’s hard to get enough bulk when we only drink produce for days on end.
Sure, people lose some weight and maybe even get some energy. What are juice cleanses missing? Fiber. It’s what we get in hulled hemp seeds, which make us feel better and lose weight at the same time.
Fiber: It’s What’s For Dinner
Feeling a little stopped up? Eating too many refined carbs and sugars? Wishing that you hadn’t overshared about your digestive system at the school pick-up line? We all have these troubles.
The answer, quite surprisingly, is to add fiber. Like, way more fiber. We can eat apples until we start sprouting blossoms, but that could get boring after awhile.
Plus it turns into far too many carbs. The best foods for a thorough cleanse (especially for the colon) have a good balance of soluble and insoluble fiber. Think of soluble fiber as the stuff that gets digested, and insoluble fiber as the stuff that just passes through the system.
Hemp hearts have both types of fiber, to keep us nice and regular without having to chow down on produce all day long.
How to Banish Inflammation
People on the Standard American Diet don’t understand that eating the wrong kinds of foods leads to inflammation.
Imagine a blister, full of fluid.
Now imagine the entire body being like one big, swollen blister. OK, that’s disgusting, but it’s a good image to keep in mind when the pressure to cook or bake with lots of vegetable oil comes calling.
Too much of what we eat is far too high in certain kinds of unsaturated fats. Yes, even unsaturated fats can be a problem.
Some varieties of fatty foods (like oils) can have too much polyunsaturated fat. The best ratio is to eat at least one gram of monounsaturated fat to three grams of polyunsaturated fat.
Experts argue that this balance helps the body get rid of inflammation that leads to weight gain and general unhappiness. Hulled hemp seeds just happen to have this perfect balance in one simple food.
Before considering the next juice cleanse, try for something a little more natural. With hemp hearts, we get the fiber we need to feel full and stay intestinally strong, plus the right mix of fats to keep us lean and clean.
