STOP World Hunger! Grow HEMP Damnit!

Hey.....sometimes there's certain issues in this world and things that need to be said that cannot be candy-coated! Hence the title.

With that being said, did you know the money spent today on diet ‘fads’ annually, could feed the world’s hungry.....TWICE! Our nation alone is spending millions to lose weight and curb hunger, while people in other countries are starving to death. As a human race, have we disrupted the natural balance of nature?

I'd say that's putting it mildly and even an understatement!

Consider this......Hemp grows so well in so many different areas of the world where there's suffering from malnutrition and impoverishment, such as third world countries, that it doesn't make any sense at all that places like this are starving.

If large scale Hemp agriculture was encouraged in these parts of the world, then farmers could begin to sell this amazing source of food for good prices on the international market, helping to significantly raise their standard of living. At the same time, the seed would provide farmers and their families with a superior high-quality food source.

No other single plant source can compare with the nutritional value of hemp seeds. Both the complete protein and essential oils contained in hemp seeds are in ideal ratios for human nutrition.

For thousands of years Hemp has been a primary food source for people all over the world. Before it was banned in 1937, hemp actually saved both China and Australia from famine during food shortages. Today the United States is the largest importer of hemp in the world, yet we still cannot grow our own. 

This is just another example of how we cannot let up on the facts that are staring us right in the face, yet are continually being ignored.

I encourage you if you're not aware to please take a look at why hemp is indeed a superior food source that by all means has a HUGE potential to end world hunger!

If taking a stand for humanity and helping to end hunger here in America is something you would be passionate about, please.....take a quick look at how Versativa & Hemp Therapy are helping to supply Hemp-Based Foods to hungry children across the country and in many other parts of the world.

Until next time.....Take Care of yourselves and each other!

Hemp Seeds for Magnesium

Without sufficient levels of the mineral Magnesium, people cannot perform at their best.

Your body stores Magnesium in your bones, tissues and organs. Only 1 percent is found in your blood, but it is critical that the blood level remains constant. Magnesium plays a role in over 300 biochemical processes including blood pressure control, heart rhythm, muscle and nerve function, energy metabolism, protein synthesis, blood sugar regulation, cardiovascular health, immune system, cell growth and repair. Studies show, nearly 80% of all adults in the United States alone lack sufficient intake of Magnesium.

Clearly, Magnesium is a vital mineral that must be consumed regularly. Versativa Hemp Products contain one of Mother Nature's most perfect foods and an excellent source for Magnesium.......The Hemp Seed. The Hemp Seed helps people make sure they are getting enough of this miracle mineral among many other health promoting ingredients.

Some people may require extra Magnesium

Many common medicines prescribed today by doctors are causing a Magnesium deficiency because they either limit absorption or trigger magnesium loss. Diuretics, antibiotics, and cancer medications (anti-neoplastic) can necessitate Magnesium supplementation. Diabetics with hyperglycemia may be at risk for Magnesium deficiency. Crohn’s disease, gluten sensitivity, and several other intestinal disorders can also cause deficiencies. As with many other nutritional deficiencies, seniors can be at a greater risk.

Hemp Therapy is one of the tastiest ways for people to maintain healthy mineral levels. Hemp Therapy stands behind Versativa products 100% and provides a way for people to ensure they are getting one of the highest quality foods know to man.

Hemp Therapy Introduces "The Hippie Chef"

One of the best things about this movement and being involved in the Hemp Business is all the great people it allows you to come in contact with.
Over the last year now, I've had the privilege of meeting all kinds of people from all walks of life who share the same passion as I do for this amazing plant we call Hemp.

One of those individuals happens to be a very cool guy by the name of Dan Collins.......also know as.....
"The Hippie Chef".
From the first time we came in contact a few months back, I knew Dan was someone who understood exactly what was going on here. I came to find out not only is he a HUGE Hemp Advocate, but he's also doing some amazing things with The Hippie Chef.

Part of his passion is to help educate people on the importance of our food today, along with sharing ideas & different recipes, becoming a certified nutritionist, and now running a successful Hemp Business that's impacting all the lives around him.

Back in 2005, Dan  was stricken by Graves Disease  ( an auto-immune disorder that leads to over activity of the thyroid gland), which makes it difficult to regulate mood, weight, mental and physical energy levels. He also had knee & joint pain from 2 surgeries caused by a motorcycle accident. 

Dan says......"Of course I hate the Vicodin and such, tears up my gut, so I also have the medicinal card, but with the Inspirin, I found it brought down the swelling and the popping when I would get up, and now I'm also much calmer which also helps with the restless leg syndrome at night. That was one of the main things that intrigued me the most about Versativa when I was doing my research on all the health benefits of Hemp."

So after a week or so, I asked The Hippie Chef if he had noticed any changes and was it what he had expected and hoped for?

"Besides feeling positive and happy Chris, my headaches are finally gone and I've lost 7 lbs from just adding these wonderful Raw Hemp Foods to my diet! I knew when I started with this journey, I would get all the GREAT Health & Wellness of it, but NEVER thought it would also add to my recipes. The Hemphoria....... just a couple of squirts, adds zing, flavor, and most of all HEMP to my families diet, and makes my food even taste BETTER!"

How cool is that? Only The Hippie Chef could figure out how to use the one and only Hemphoria is his awesome recipes! That reminds me......You won't want to miss out on The Hippie Chef's weekly radio show every Wed. at 7pm PST & 10pm EST.  You can catch him at TheHippieChef on BlogTalkRadio

If there's one thing Dan and I agree on, it's that when people begin to experience the benefits of adding Hemp Foods to their diet and having significant results, we then have a responsibility to share and pass on this solution that's been misled for way too long!

Besides being able to make a difference in people's lives, were also helping to make this movement even stronger one person at a time. The shear fact that the average person regardless of race, religion, or background can also run a successful Versativa Hemp Business like The Hippie Chef is appealing to many today. 

Be sure to stay connected to The Hippie Chef on Facebook and also Twitter for all the latest news and updates. We hope to be featuring you next time and sharing your story! Until next time, Take Care and Be Well Friends!
