Hemp seed oil contains the most essential fatty acids of any nut or seed oil. There are three main hemp products—seeds, oil, and protein powder—of those three products hemp seeds provides the broadest spectrum of nutritional benefits per serving.
The hemp seed is bursting with Omega-6 and Omega-3, essential fatty acids that have heart health and anti inflammatory benefits. The seeds have a nutty flavor and can make salads, desserts, yogurts, cereals, and breads even more delicious and healthy. Hemp seeds are versatile and can be turned into butter, milk, protein powder, finishing oil, and soap.
Hemp Hearts™ (shelled hemp seeds) are a well-balanced source of all required proteins, all essential fats and most vitamins; and are of special benefit to those who are unable to eat gluten, lactose, sugar, fish, nuts, meat and other common foods.
Nutritional benefits for the skin – Hemp oil includes topical benefits when it is used to cleanse and moisturize the skin. The oil adds a protective layer to the skin, helps prevent rashes and provides relief for acne. Fatty acids have to be absorbed from food because the body does not produce them.
Organic Hemp Protein Power, like soy and other beans or gegumes, is an excellent source of protein; containing all the 21 known amino acids, including the 9 essential amino acids that the body cannot produce on its own, and must take from other food sources.
Hemp oil is essentially beneficial for pets – the oil thickens the texture of your pet’s fur and results in less shedding or doggie dandruff. Pet fur and skin infections are reduced by the fatty acids in hemp oil. Hemp seed oil is better than fish or flax seed-based oils, because it has the perfect Omega-6 to Omega-3 ration (3:1) of fatty acids that dogs need.
