One of the healthiest foods we can be eating! Learn in this video what makes the HEMP SEED so amazing and how I like to use them. I also share an awesome …


  1. Hi Derek! Thank you for encouraging me to eat more hemp seeds. I like to eat them on toast with dark chocolate spread and pumpkin seeds on top (and a banana when I have) and a cup of soy milk. I noticed I felt very sleepy after 3-6 hours and I started to google for an answer online and found out this:
    "Two of the most remarkable things about the hemp seed is that it contains the full spectrum of 21 amino acids and all eight B vitamins. This is very important when it comes to supporting great sleep, for a number of reasons – one of which is that the combination of amino acid l-tryptophan and vitamin b6 makes up the precursor for melatonin, a hormone that regulates the sleep-wake cycle. When paired together like this, the B6 will trigger the conversion of tryptophan into serotonin, which your body can then convert into melatonin."
    and this:
    "Pumpkin seeds and the powder from pumpkin seeds have relatively high amounts of the amino acid tryptophan. Tryptophan is the amino acid the body uses to make the feel-good and relaxation neurotransmitter serotonin. Pumpkin seeds also contain high amounts of zinc, which can help the brain convert tryptophan into serotonin. Serotonin levels are typically low in people who cannot stay asleep and wake throughout the night.
    It is best to take about 1 cup of seeds or ½ cup of the powder with applesauce or another healthy carbohydrate; the carbohydrate allows the tryptophan to get into the brain in higher amounts. "

    After my research I started eating rich magnezium foods late afternoon-evening instead of breakfast. Some articles also say that magnezium gives you energy. And it does…the next day, after a good sleep. Definitely NOT after eating. I can even skip my coffee the next morning now. I experimented this meal on my boyfriend and he was also sleepy after a few hours haha…

    Can you maybe make a video about foods high in magnezium or foods that make you sleepy and when is the best time to eat/not to eat them? Have you ever felt sleepy after some rich magnezium foods? How would you like to make an experiment?

  2. Do you try to separate acidic and alkaline foods? Like doesn't are digestion work better if we eat acidic with only acidic fruits and alkaline with only alkaline fruits? I've heard some people eat semi-acidic with alkaline fruits and semi alkaline with acidic fruits. Whats your thoughts on that?
