Why Hemp Superfoods?
Hemp may be the plant kingdom's most sustainable resource and its tiny but powerful seed is a nutritional powerhouse that clearly stands alone as the most concentrated, complete and balanced source of easily utilized ‘Essential Nutrients’ - the elements the human body must obtain from the food we eat for optimal health and helping overcome discomforts like these?
•constipation, bowel issues
•low energy, aches & pains
•depression, hormone imbalance
•poor circulation, cardiovascular issues
•over coming addictions
High on Life is a leading innovator and marketer of hemp based supplements. Hemp Superfoods are an easily digestible “heart smart” solution for kids and busy moms, and hard working dads to hardcore athletes. Easy to use, taste great and… is good for you! Here is how we measure up when compared:
Protein: all 10 Essential Amino Acids (EAA),
including the two most important for children’s growth and brain development. It is comprised of 65%, highest quality of any plant, globulin Edistin perfect alkaline forming complete protein for humans, which most closely resembles and is compatible with our own blood plasma and digestive system. Hemp seed is categorized as an “achene,” is gluten free, non GMO and does NOT contain enzyme inhibitors that block protein digestion, such as those found in legumes (soybeans), grains (wheat) and nuts that cause food intolerances or allergies.
Good Fats: Ideal 1:3 ratio Omega 3 & 6 Essential Fatty Acids (EFA), vitamin E, 480 mg betasitosterols per 100ml, and naturally occurring: GLA & steriodonic acid, the raw materials for human production of DHA and EPA. EFAs are the foundation of every cell membrane and function, is the protective coating on our nervous system and is critical for all healing and fighting infections. Hemp seed is 80% concentrated EFA's, highest of any food! Long-term use of oils with unbalanced EFA ratios, may lead to prostate cancer, irregular heartbeat, eczema and deterioration of immune function. The body requires approximately 1 tbsp of good fats per 50 lbs of body weight per day!
Truly a “Super Food” for humans!
Hemp is a source of chlorophyll, vitamin B1, B3, B6, B12, C, D, E, magnesium, potassium, sulfur, phyto-sterols, calcium, fiber, iron, potassium, phosphorus, lignin fiber and heavy metal/chemical toxin absorbing and colon brooming soluble, insoluble and inulin fiber.
Protein supplement and meal replacements are largely made up of GMO soy beans and whey protein isolates. Consumers are adapting to vegan alternatives due to awareness of related: cramps, bloating, indigestion and intolerance issues, liver and kidney damage, abusive animal harvesting, environmental damage, Mad Cow disease and the mis-use of growth hormones and anti-biotics.

Astragin is a proprietary all natural plant derived compound extracted from highly fractionated Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus. NuLiv’s in vitro, in vivo, and human studies have demonstrated that Astragin can effectively regulate glucose, fat cell, and muscle cell metabolisms and have significant positive effects in reducing glucose absorption, and in increasing fat cell combustion and muscle cell glycogen synthesis. These effects make Astragin a perfect nutraceutical ingredient to be included in weight, blood sugar, and cholesterol and blood lipid management by:
Decreasing glucose absorption in intestinal cells (42%) (6.1, Section 6)
Increasing glucose absorption in muscle cells (6.2, Section 6)
Increasing glucose absorption and fatty acid breakdown in fat cells (6.3, Section 6)
Decreasing glucose levels (7.2, Section 7)
Increasing insulin sensitivity (7.3, Section 7)
Reducing the activity of inflammatory bio markers (6.4, Section 6)
Increasing ATP production in liver cells (6.5, Section 6)
Increasing Glycogen synthesis and storage in muscle cells (8.2, Section 8)
Will I fail a drug test consuming Hemp Superfoods?
No, industrial hemp foods contain less that 10ppm THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) that means less than the amount of arsenic in red wine or mercury in the average city drinking water, and consuming them will not cause a marijuana psychoactive effect or a false positive drug test.
Are Hemp Superfoods gluten free?
Industrial hemp seeds are naturally gluten free. However our farmers and seed cleaners equipment may come in contact with gluten grains and one kernel of wheat in ten thousand hemp seeds could result in a positive gluten test. Our supplier: Hempco employs specialized equipment to separate any gluten grains, however the odd grain of wheat gets thru and we caution celiacs with the statement “ may contain wheat gluten”… just in case, even though it is very rare. Your health and trust is most important to us.
