The Power of Hemp Seeds



I don’t often highly recommend things to people (well okay, I do recommend cycling).  But this is one thing that I honestly feel will improve your life and your cycling.   – Darryl

I’m not a nutritionist, but I know good healthy food when I see it…..and one of the best foods out there in my opinion is hemp seeds (also known as hemp hearts).  I’ve had them as a regular part of my diet ever since I first found out about them, and I swear that it’s made me a better cyclist and overall more healthy.

Hemp Hearts are a “super-food” and this is one product that I feel really lives up to its name.  All you have to do is read below to see all the amazing things it can do for your body.  So in a world of countless athletic enhancement (chemically engineered), I suggest you start incorporating Hemp into your diet and get even better results….naturally.

The oh so many benefits of Hemp Hearts:

  • More Energy, Exceptional source of protein, and Natural.
  • Best source of protein, essential fats, vitamins and enzymes on the Earth.
  • Do not contain significant amounts of sugar, starches or saturated fats.
  • Contain more amino acids (proteins) than milk, meat or eggs.
  • Contain more omega 3 essential fat than any fish.
  • Is a complete protein source – much more balanced than & digestible than any soy product.
  • Contain about 47% oil, 86% of which is omega 3, 6, 9.
  • Contains all the essential an omega 3 fats required for human health.
  • Hemp Hearts are unmatched in Nature for their balance of all required proteins and all essential fats as well as most vitamins and enzymes.
  • Is perfect for those troubled with constipation and for those avoiding carbohydrates.
  • Provides more energy than energy bars — without their sugar, milk, nuts, and meat.
  • Is suitable for those unable to eat gluten, sugar, milk nuts, or meat.
  • The list really does go on and on.
How to use them:
The options are really endless and you can add hemp seeds to anything.  I suggest adding them to your morning oatmeal so that it become a super packed power oatmeal.  Another good idea is adding them to your smoothie.  Those are a couple ideas that I feel are best.

    We are using hemp flower as a gluten free flower and it is really good!

    Thanks for the post. I have heard of hemp seeds, but did not really understand their benefits. Sounds like I can add them to my Steel Cut Oats. I will look for them the next time I go to the grocery store and report back. Thanks!

    Thanks for the tip, buddy.

    Where would one find hemp seeds?

      Dude, I was going to include a link for purchase but didn’t want it to come off as a commercial or something I’m trying to push. You can buy hemp seeds pretty much anywhere. Costco has them, all nutrition stores, probably most grocery stores, or you can buy them online. Good Luck.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
