Almond is the only nut that alkalises the body, all other nuts acidify.[i] In Ayurvedic medicine it is revered for its ability to support the reproductive system, particularly in men by improving sperm count. Almonds can be eaten raw as a snack but those with a weak digestion should soak them overnight first & remove the skins as this activates the enzymes & increases their nutrient value. Like all nuts they are an excellent source of plant protein while being particularly high in Vitamin E & Manganese. They are also a rich in flavanols, antioxidants and are known to help with managing cholesterol & there are many discussions on its potential benefits for brain health & Alzheimer’s[ii]. The high quantity of manganese may also explain it benefits in cholesterol & brain health.

Hemp is a complete plant protein with all 20 amino acids. It is also a generous supply of essential fatty acids omegas 3 & 6 including GLA (gamma linoleic acid) the most precious of all fats and only found in few foods (spirulina, evening primrose & borage for example). We eat an abundance of omega 6 (polyunsaturated fats) & not nearly enough omega 3’s unless you are eating large quantities of fish & that in itself has its risks. Hemp has a healthy ratio of omega 3’s to 6. GLA deficiency may be linked to psoriasis, eczema, acne, heavy menses & IBS. Hemp Protein does not contain THC the psychoactive component of the marijuana plant.
