The inhabitants of a small town in China have the highest life expectancy on Earth. The secret is simply that their diet is based around hemp seeds.

The majority of the inhabitants in the small Chinese village of Bama Yao live to more than one hundred years old thanks to a hemp seed rich diet. According to experts, the high fatty acid content (especially Omega 3 and 6) is the main factor behind the beneficial effects of hemp seeds, the secret ingredient that makes these residents the longest living people in the world.

Experts state that these types of vegetables and antioxidants can help to reduce the risk of cancer (especially breast and colon cancer). They can also help to control sugar levels in people who suffer from diabetes.

As well as this, the fatty acids in hemp seed contain vitamins A, D and E which help to fight viruses and keep the brain healthy as we age.

Additionally, hemp seed is rich in calcium, sodium, iron and fibre, fibre that prevents people from excessive eating and helps to encourage a healthy digestive system.

Ma Gu offers us all longevity, all we have to do is accept the offering, as the people of Bama Yao have, and the benefits are obvious.
