  • Fibre: Fibre content in blueberries aids in digestion and promotes satiety, helping to control appetite and regulate blood sugar levels.

Hemp Seeds:

  • Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids: Hemp seeds are a rich source of essential fatty acids, including omega-3 and omega-6, which support heart health and reduce inflammation. This can help in managing blood sugar levels and promoting overall well-being.
  • Protein and Fibre: Protein and fibre in hemp seeds contribute to satiety, supporting weight loss efforts by reducing cravings and promoting a feeling of fullness.
