Hemp Oil Benefits

Hemp plants produce seeds that are rich in pure oil.  The oil contained within hemp seeds is about 75 to 80% polyunsaturated fatty acid (the good fat) and only 9 to 11% of the lesser desired saturated fatty acids.  Hemp seeds  contain about 40% oil, and blends together the benefits of  edible vegetable oils and marine fish oils.  Hemp seed oil is a rich source of  both Omega 6 and Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EFA's), and Vitamin E.  It also contains small amounts of the following polyunsaturated fats:  Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), Oleic acid, and Stearidonic acid.  

Omega 6 and Omega 3 EFA's are required more in our diet than any other vitamin, and yet our bodies do not produce them naturally.  These oils must be ingested in their pure form, as they can not be metabolized from other food sources.  These healing enzymes can be absorbed directly into the skin to replenish missing oils, so they are ideally suited for many cosmetics and skin care products.  Hemp oil also provides an ample supply of carotene, phytosterols, and phospholipids, in addition to a large number of minerals including: calcium, sulfur, magnesium, phosphorus and potassium.  It is also a good source of chlorophyll.

EFA's are known to have preventative role in our skins aging process.  The outflow of moisture from the body is regulated by a barrier the skin forms to protect itself from the external environment.  Omega 6 and Gamma Lineolic Acid (GLA), help to preserve this barrier, and in turn, reduce the loss of moisture from your skin.  Skin that is lacking in Omega 6 and GLA allow a greater loss of moisture, causing dryness.  Dry skin problems, such as  eczema, psoriasis, cracking, scaling, and loss of elasticity can be reversed by using skin care products containing Omega 6 fatty acids.  Regular use of hemp seed oil can help reduce any skin discomfort by soothing and restoring dry damaged skin, leaving it smooth, silky, and moisturized.  It is also an excellent choice for hair and lip care.

Recent studies have shown that EFA's can help prevent the late onset of poor health related illnesses in both humans and pets.  Many studies have shown that North Americans have a high dietary deficiency in EFA's because of a high consumption of animal fats versus plant fats, caused by a great intake of processed foods and meats.

Gamma Lineolic Acid (GLA) is very important in your body, as it helps to maintain and care for your skin.  It is not commonly found within natural oils and some exceptional sources for this rare acid include hemp, evening rose and borge.  Hemp oil has been dubbed, "Natures most perfectly balanced oil in the plant kingdom", because it contains a perfectly balanced 3 to 1 ratio of Omega 6 (linolic/LA) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic/LNA) essential fatty acids.  These two EFA's have been found to be the optimum requirement for healthy human nutrition.

WHY CHOOSE HEMP SEED OIL?

The choice is clear,  it has the highest Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio content  of five major oils.

Hemp Seed Oil   3:1
Canola Oil           2:1
Coconut Oil         2:0
Soybean Oil        1:1
Flax Seed Oil      0.25:1

Because of its balance and versatility, clear hemp oil is the most perfect of vegetable oils.  Properly used, clear hemp oil can promote the same health and life style benefits as hemp hearts. Hemp seed oil is made from only from the inner parts of the hemp seed.  It is higher in essential fatty acids (EFA) than other oils, yet has the lowest amount of undesirable saturated and mono-unsaturated fats.  Although hemp oil  does not have the protein content of hemp hearts, many other high protein foods and valuable non protein foods can be enhanced nutritionally by preparing them with clear hemp cooking and salad oil.

Storage:  Hemp oil can be damaged by exposure to light, heat, and air.  After opening, keep bottles tightly sealed, and store in your refrigerator.  It should be consumed within 1 to 3 months for optimum freshness.  Hemp oil can be frozen and will be fresh for over a year in that state.  Remember, to also adhere to any expiration dates on the bottles.

Cooking Tips:  Hemp seed oils are rendered unfit for human consumption by heating above 150 degrees C (300 degrees F).  Doing this, will result in the production of unhealthy fatty acids and an increased peroxide level.  Do not substitute Hemp oil for cooking or frying oils.
For your optimum health, hemp seed oil can be eaten as a food product and taken as a nutritional supplement.  Try it on salad dressings, poured over pasta, baked potatoes, and vegetables.  It can be used as  an excellent alternative for olive oil. 

A SPECIAL NOTE FROM OUR VENDOR


Consuming our Clear Hemp Cooking and Salad Oil is not a replacement for taking Hemp Hearts™ (shelled hemp seeds).  Though Hemp Oil does contain the desired ratio of Essential Fatty Acids (Omegas) required for human health, it does not retain the Essential Amino Acids (Proteins), some of the vitamins or live enzymes through the extraction process.  The combination of these Essential Amino Acids (Proteins) combined with the right balance of Essential Fatty acids (Omegas), vitamins, calcium and live enzymes is considered to be more the key to reversing the symptoms of many late onset health conditions. Hemp Hearts™ (shelled hemp seeds) do contain that optimum balance of essential nutrients. HEMP HEARTS (shelled hemp seed)

Saturated Fats:  May cause cholesterol deposits, high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, and some types of cancer.  Coconut oil is the most saturated choice.  Hemp seed oil is the lowest in saturated fats, and therefore maybe the most healthy choice.
Monounsaturated Fats:  May be preferable to saturated fats, but only if the total percentage of the first two groups remains small and if there are also considerable polyunsaturated (essential) fats.  Olive oil and pork lard do not contain significant amounts of essential fats.
Polyunsaturated Fats are Essential Fatty Acids:  Eaten with protein foods, they may reduce blood pressure and cholesterol, increase metabolism, burn fat, and prevent heart disease and stroke.  They also promote cell membrane fluidity and reduce inflammation with beneficial effects on those with arthritis, tuberculosis, and other inflammatory diseases. 
Gamma Linolenic Fatty Acid: This acid is rarely found in vegetable oils.  Hemp oil may be the only practical source of this essential fatty acid for those who are not sufficiently healthy to synthesize it from Linoleic fatty acids.
Omega 6 to Omega 3 Balance:  A ratio of about three or four to one is thought to be very important.  Hemp oil is the only oil that is naturally occurring in this ideal range.
Fatty Acid Percentages:  This may be the most important basis for evaluating the health benefits of different oils.  Hemp oil with 78% polyunsaturates may be able to neutralize the negative effect of some poorer oils in a diet.
