SEEDS

Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) is a flowering plant in the pea family Fabaceae cultivated as an important forage crop. In the UK, Australia, and New Zealand it is known as lucerne and as lucerne grass in south Asia. Alfalfa is a cool season perennial legume living from three to twelve years, depending on variety and climate. It resembles clover with clusters of small purple flowers. The plant grows to a height of up to 1 metre, and has a deep root system sometimes stretching to 4.5 metres. This makes it very resilient, especially to droughts. However, the plant exhibits "autotoxicity", which means that it is difficult for alfalfa seed to grow in existing stands of alfalfa. Therefore, it is recommended that alfalfa fields be rotated with other species (for example, corn or wheat) before reseeding.

About 30-35% of the weight of hempseed is hemp oil, an edible oil that contains about 80% essential fatty acids (EFAs); i.e., linoleic acid, omega-6 (LA, 55%), alpha-linolenic acid, omega-3 (ALA, 22%), in addition to gamma-linolenic acid, omega-6 (GLA, 1-4%) and stearidonic acid, omega-3 (SDA, 0-2%). Hempseed also contains about 20% of a highly-digestible protein, where one third is edestin and two thirds are albumins. Its amino acid profile is close to "complete" when compared to more common sources of proteins such as meat, milk, eggs and soya. The proportions of linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid in one tablespoon (15 ml) per day of hempseed oil easily provides human daily requirements for EFAs. Unlike linseed oil, hempseed oil can be used continuously without developing a deficiency or other imbalance of EFAs. This has been demonstrated in a clinical study, where the daily ingestion of linseed oil decreased the endogenous production of GLA. Hempseed is an adequate source of calcium and iron. Whole, toasted hempseeds are also a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese. Hempseed contains no gluten and therefore would not trigger symptoms of coeliac disease.

Linseed (or Flax) is naive to region from the Mediterranean to India and was probably first domesticated in the Fertile Crescent. Flax was extensively cultivated in ancient Egypt. Linseed is an erect annual plant growing to 1.2m tall, with slender stems. The leaves are glaucous green, slender lanceolate, 20-40mm long and 3mm broad. The flowers are pure pale blue, 15-25mm diameter, with five petals; they can also be bright red. The fruit is a round, dry capsule 5-9mm diameter, containing several glossy brown seeds shaped like an apple pip, 4-7mm long. In addition to referring to the plant itself, the word "flax" may refer to the unspun fibres of the flax plant. Linseeds contain high levels of lignans and Omega-3 fatty acids. Lignans may benefit the heart and possess anti-cancer properties. Initial studies suggest that linseed taken in the diet may benefit individuals with certain types of breast and prostate cancers. Linseed may also lessen the severity of diabetes by stabilising blood sugar levels. There is some support for the use of linseed as a laxative due to its dietary fibre content though excessive consumption without liquid can result in intestinal blockage. Consuming large amounts of linseed can impair the effectiveness of certain oral medications, due to its fibre content.
