Hemp seeds contain approximately 25% to 30% protein by weight, making them an excellent plant-based protein source. These proteins contain all nine essential amino acids that the body cannot produce itself and must be obtained through food. They are particularly rich in the amino acids arginine and glutamine, which play important roles in various metabolic processes.


Hemp seeds contain around 30% to 35% fat, which consists mainly of healthy unsaturated fatty acids. Among them are:

Omega-3 fatty acids: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)

Omega-6 fatty acids: Linoleic acid (LA)

Omega-9 fatty acids: oleic acid

The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in hemp seeds is usually between 2:1 and 3:1, which is considered optimal for health.


Hemp seeds contain about 30% carbohydrates, mostly in the form of fiber (about 20%) and some starch and sugar. The carbohydrates in hemp seeds have a low glycemic index, meaning they raise blood sugar levels slowly and are therefore suitable for diabetics.



Vitamin E: A powerful antioxidant that protects cells from oxidative stress and contributes to skin, eye and immune system health.

Vitamin B1 (thiamine): Important for energy metabolism and the function of the nervous system.

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): Helps with energy production and cellular respiration.

Vitamin B3 (niacin): Plays a role in DNA synthesis and cell repair, as well as energy metabolism.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine): Involved in the formation of red blood cells and the regulation of hormonal balance.

Vitamin B9 (folic acid): Important for cell division and the formation of DNA and RNA.

Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid): Helps in the synthesis of fatty acids and steroid hormones.


Iron: Necessary for the transport of oxygen in the blood and the formation of hemoglobin.

Magnesium: Important for muscle and nerve function, energy metabolism and bone health.

Potassium: Regulates fluid balance, blood pressure and muscle contraction.

Zinc: Supports the immune system, cell division and wound healing.

Phosphorus: Important for bone health, energy metabolism and cell membrane structure.

Calcium: Essential for bone health, muscle contraction, and signaling between cells.

Manganese: Involved in bone formation, fat and carbohydrate metabolism, and antioxidant defense.

Copper: Necessary for the formation of red blood cells, iron metabolism and the immune system.

Selenium: A powerful antioxidant that supports thyroid function and strengthens the immune system.

...are rich in nutrients and offer a variety of health benefits. Here is a detailed list of hemp seed ingredients:

  1. Proteins: Hemp seeds contain high-quality plant protein that provides all essential amino acids in a balanced ratio. Proteins are important for building and repairing tissue in the body.

  2. Healthy fats: Hemp seeds are rich in healthy fats, especially omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are important for heart health, brain function, and inflammatory responses in the body.

  3. Fiber: Fiber is important for healthy digestion and regulating blood sugar levels. Hemp seeds contain both soluble and insoluble fiber.

  4. Vitamins: Hemp seeds are a good source of several vitamins, including vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free radical damage, as well as several B vitamins that are important for metabolism and energy production.

  5. Minerals: Hemp seeds contain minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc and phosphorus, which are important for various body functions, including bone health, muscle contractions and the immune system.

  6. Phytonutrients: Hemp seeds also contain a variety of phytonutrients, including antioxidants such as flavonoids and polyphenols, which may fight inflammation in the body and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

In terms of health, hemp seeds are extremely beneficial:

  1. Heart health: The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in hemp seeds may help lower cholesterol, regulate blood pressure, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

  2. Brain function: The omega-3 fatty acids in hemp seeds are important for brain health and may support cognitive function, including memory and concentration.

  3. Anti-inflammatory: The anti-inflammatory properties of hemp seeds can help reduce inflammation in the body, which is linked to many chronic diseases such as arthritis, diabetes and heart disease.

  4. Digestive health: The fiber in hemp seeds promotes healthy digestion and can prevent constipation.

  5. Immune system: The vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in hemp seeds strengthen the immune system and support overall health.

Overall, hemp seeds are an excellent addition to a balanced diet and can help promote health in a variety of ways.

Join the weight loss challenge now: eat 1 tablespoon (approx. 20g) of peeled hemp nuts every day for 12 weeks 30 minutes before meals and not only lose weight, but also size.

If you consume 60 g of shelled hemp seeds every day, it will affect your body in several ways:

  1. Nutrition and satiety:

    • Hemp seeds are rich in fiber, protein, and healthy fats. The fiber contributes to satiety, meaning you feel fuller for longer after eating hemp seeds. This can lead to you eating less overall, potentially contributing to weight loss.

  2. Metabolism and energy:

    • The proteins and fats in hemp seeds provide long-lasting energy and support the metabolism. The body needs energy to break down the proteins and metabolize the fats, which can lead to increased calorie consumption and thus also contribute to weight loss.

  3. Nutrient intake:

    • Hemp seeds contain a variety of micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals that are important for metabolism and general health. By consuming hemp seeds regularly, you can ensure that your body is supplied with the necessary nutrients, which can have a positive effect on metabolism and weight regulation.

  4. Weight gain when underweight:

    • For people who are underweight or have difficulty gaining weight, hemp seeds can be helpful due to their high calorie and nutrient content. By consuming hemp seeds regularly, they can get extra calories and nutrients needed for healthy weight gain.

However, it is important to note that consuming hemp seeds alone will not automatically lead to weight loss or gain. A balanced diet and regular physical activity are also crucial for healthy weight management. If you intend to include hemp seeds in your diet, it is advisable to do so as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. If you have specific weight goals, it is also advisable to speak to a nutritionist or doctor to create a personalized meal plan.
