Good For Digestion:

Fiber is a nutrient many Americans do not get enough of in their diet, according to the Dietary Guidelines leading to poor digestion. Women need 25 grams of fiber a day, and men 38 grams. Whole hemp seeds are comprised of 10 to 15 percent fiber, or about 1 gram per 3 tablespoons. Fiber in food like hemp seeds improves bowel function by helping prevent constipation. The fiber also increases feelings of fullness so you eat less.
