Ah, smell that crisp, spring air! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the hemp seed oil is flowing freely. This year, we are so excited about getting to the beach. One look in the mirror tells us it has been a long winter under heavy clothing. For the next couple of months, we are ramping up our intake of hemp seeds for our health. After all, you want to look great in a swimsuit, right? Adding hemp seeds to a healthy diet helps with weight loss, fitness routines and skin’s dewy glow next to the water.
First, we need to ditch a few pounds from all that winter excess. Hemp seeds have fat, and fat is good. It helps to satisfy the appetite and reduce cravings for sweet foods. Hemp seed food products in particular are useful because they also contain a lot of protein. Throw a tablespoon into a smoothie and you add 3-5 grams of protein. The seeds have four grams of fat in the right balane of Omega-6 and Omega-3, for those of us who worry about inflammation.
The next thing we have to work on is a workout regimen that will help burn some fat and build up some muscle. To no one’s surprise, hemp seeds are ready to kick that booty into gear. Experts recommend balancing cardio workouts (like running) with weight training routines designed to build up some muscle and increase your anaerobic threshold. Gotta get more muscle so you can climb over the wall instead of hitting it every time. Research shows that a diet rich in leucine, which hemp seed products have in spades, helps to build stronger muscles and improve workout endurance.
Great Skin Care
Of course, eating hemp seeds isn’t the only thing we can do. We want that dewy, sun-kissed look, even if we are nowhere near the beach. That’s where hemp seed skin care products come in. They are proven to help moisturize skin more effectively than other oils, plus they feel pretty fantastic. From shampoos to lotion and body cream, these skin care products give us the full body care we are looking for.
Before long, it will be summer and the swimsuit will be calling. Does it fit? Does it look hot? It does! Thank to the help of these tiny hemp seeds, we have lost weight, got in shape and are ready to look fantastic at the beach.
