Hemp Seed Oil (Cold Pressed) is unique with an almost perfectly balanced profile of Omega 9, 3 and 6. Uniquely among common seed oil, it also contains GLA (Gamma-Linolenic Acid) and even more uniquely, raises circulating GLA.
Research around the world has shown that hemp oil (as can all essential fatty acids) boosts the body’s natural ability to heal and boost our immune systems.
The Essential Fatty Acids in hemp are renowned for their ability to improve cell growth and organ function, vitality and mental state.
Extensive studies have shown that many common illnesses (e.g. Eczema) are related to deficiencies or imbalances of specific fatty acids in the body in particular, Omega 3, 9 and 6.
Hemp Seed Oil contains all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain healthy human life. No other single plant source has the essential amino acids in such an easily digestible form, nor has the essential fatty acids in as perfect a ratio to meet human nutritional needs.
The importance of hemp seed nutrients to human health cannot be fully appreciated without some understanding of biochemistry in life. Unfortunately, any attempt to understand the flow of life leads into the realm of the most troublesome of the three infinities — the infinitely complex. Some deep thinkers believe life is a paradox not to be understood, but to be experienced to the fullest. However, the Sages have said, “Know thyself”. It is paradoxical to attempt to simplify the infinite complexity of flowing life. Yet, it is far better for the health and development of any thinking and feeling, uniquely individual human being, to pursue knowledge than to lounge in ignorance.
Researchers believe that one out of two Americans will die from the effects of cardiovascular disease. One out of four Americans will die from cancer. Researchers also believe that cancers erupt when the immune system’s response is weakened.
Pioneers in the fields of biochemistry and human nutrition now believe cardiovascular disease and most cancers are really diseases of fatty degeneration caused by the continued over-consumption of saturated fats and refined vegetable oils that turn essential fatty acids into carcinogenic killers. If this is not scary enough, more Americans are succumbing to immune deficiency diseases than ever before. Sadly, it is ignorance of human nutritional needs, which will cause this overwhelming majority of Americans to die slowly from these afflictions — the greatest killers in affluent nations.
As always, I will be happy to learn what the specific benefits of Hemp Seed Oil may be for me. I am also looking forward to being able to add the oil to food, rather than having to take it in isolation. I understand that it has a nutty flavour, making it ideal to add to salads.
