Hemp seed oil is considered the most balanced oil for meeting our dietary fatty acid needs. Besides being ridiculously healthy is has a pleasant nutty flavour, making it easy to take as a supplement.
Two teaspoons of this delicious, nutty oil will meet your daily omega 3 needs. It is one of the best omega 3 foods available today.
Hemp seed oil also contains natural (legal) cannabinoids and terpenes to stimulate your endocannabinoid system and complete your health and wellness regime.
Health seed oil benefits
Hemp seed oil has a unique 3:1 ratio of omega-6 and omega-3. This is a perfect ratio for our nutritional requirements and promotes cardiovascular health and may benefit some skin diseases.
Another essential fatty acid found in hemp seeds is Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). This is a type of omega-6 fatty acid which can have a hormone regulatory effect and may relieve symptoms of PMS.
Hemp seed oil also contains omega 9, which, like omega 3, helps the body’s inflammatory response, supports the immune system, and lowers cholesterol.
The natural cannabinoids and terpenes along with the fatty acids can play a key role in reducing inflammation and aiding immune function.
Make sure it is Australian hemp seed oil
If you are in Australia, make sure you support your hemp industry by purchasing Australian hemp seed oil. Be careful as some Australian brands use imported seed.
Always check the label before you make a purchase. The bar chart under the Aussie kangaroo icon should be yellow, not white!
How to use hemp seed oil
Use in salads, smoothies, pesto and pasta dishes or rub directly onto skin.
Avoid heating as hemp seed oil has a low smoke point and heat can damage some of the beneficial properties of the oil.
