Hemp seed oil contains the ideal 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 (GLA) to Omega-3 (SDA) essential fatty acids which can help the body to metabolize fat, counteract aging, increase immune system strength, lower cholesterol, and help prevent cardiovascular disease.
Hemp Oil Uses
Hemp oil has a pleasant nutty flavor and can be used the same way that you might use olive oil, but it must be used raw or in very low heat (under 160 degrees Fahrenheit). It can be added to smoothies, shakes, vegetables, pasta, salads, and dressings.
Hemp seed oil is a natural emollient and can be found in many cosmetic products, such as massage oils, lip balms, soaps, lotions, creams, and hair products.
If you have dry and itchy skin, hemp seed oil can be used as a soothing and revitalizing moisturizer. The oil has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and has been shown to counteract the ageing process in skin.
Hemp Oil is a natural way to get more protein and healthy fats in your diet.
