PRODUCT Hemp seed oil
DESCRIPTION 250 ml Cold pressed hemp seed oil
BENEFITS This oil is very high in Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids. It provides an unusually high percentage of unsaturated fats, with a ratio of 3:1 of omega-6 and omega-3 EFAs. It can help support the functions of cardiovascular, immune, reproductive, and nervous systems
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION One of the most balanced natural sources of omega-3 & 6 essential fatty acids, which are vital for maintaining a healthy body and mind. Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) play an important role in metabolism, cell growth, and general brain functions. Without an adequate intake of omega-3 & 6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) which we cannot produce ourselves, the human body is unable to function properly. EFAs may also help alleviate the symptoms of degenerative conditions, inflammation, and high blood pressure.
THC Content - Contrary to what the name suggests hemp seed oil does not contain elevated levels of tetrahydrocannabiole (THC), the active ingredient in marijuana. THC is mainly found in the flowering tops of female plants before the seeds mature. Hemp seeds are thoroughly cleaned and washed before pressing, thereby removing any traces of THC on the seeds that may have been left behind. You will not get ‘high’ from ingesting hemp seed oil.
Suggested Applications for Hemp Seed Oil:
Helps lower blood pressure
Improves cardiovascular health
Helps reduce hyperactivity and learning difficulties (ADHD)
Improves general brain functions
Promotes healthy skin
Use with other foodstuffs or on its own. Add to salads, smoothies, yoghurts, juices, or fresh vegetables. Keep refrigerated. Use within 2 months of opening. Do not heat. Not suitable for baking or frying.

Hemp-Seed Eating Village in China Holds Oldest, Healthiest People in the World
by Christina Sarich
While there is a man in Bolivia said to be the oldest living person in the world, at 123 years of age, a village in China is boasting ages far older than the global average, and few suffer from any health problems. Scientists believe the secret is in their diet, which actually includes lots of hempseed. It also helps that the water and air in Bama Yao, China are exceptionally clean, and that their food contains noticeably less fat, animal proteins, salt, and sugar than let’s say, the standard American diet. But according to some experts, the villagers’ consumption of a superfood high in essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6) is also part of the reason they live so long. Their primary source of receiving these fatty acids is through a diet rich in hempseed.
Life expectancy in Bama Yao is well over 100 years for its inhabitants, one of only five places on the planet where people can expect to live so healthfully for so long. Centenarian hot spots, called ‘blue zones,’ include Sardinia, Italy, Okinawa just off Japan, and Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. Among these rare places, there is a commonality of lifestyle habits: they eat a plant-based diet, often with several super foods, invest heavily in family, get moderate exercise daily, and have a sense of faith and purpose in their lives.
It is well known that plant sterols and antioxidants can help reduce the risk of many cancers including breast and colon cancer, as well as control sugar levels in diabetics. Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids found in hemp seed are also full of plant-based protein, vitamins A, E, and D, and many B vitamins – all important antioxidants that help eliminate free radicals in the body.
Hemp seed is also rich in calcium, dietary fiber, and iron. The high amount of soluble fiber in hemp seed helps to prevent over-eating since it makes you feel full, longer, and it can help keep the digestive system healthy.
Furthermore, omega 3 and 6 ratios that are in balance also contribute to a healthy brain as we age. Omega 6 polyunsaturated fats are used by the body to make certain hormones and signaling molecules. Roughly speaking, the omega 6′s are the precursors for many of the molecules that make up our body’s inflammatory response. As an example – the omega 6 linoleic acid is a precursor for many molecules, among them the prostaglandins that the enzymes COX-1 and COX-2 work on. But these must be balanced with Omega 3s or we have some highly inflammatory chemicals running rampant in our body.
In hemp seed oil, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 is about 3:1. This favorable ratio helps to compensate, at least partially, for the general over-consumption of omega-6 fatty acids in the typical American diet, and likely leads to the overall anti-inflammatory health benefits that villagers in Bama Yao enjoy.

Hemp seed oil, pressed from the seeds of theCannabis sativaplant, has been named nature’s perfect food due to its balanced concentrations of omega fatty acids. Hemp used to be consumed worldwide, as it was one of the first cultivated and consumed crops. There is a misconception that hemp contains THC, the principal psychoactive constituent of the cannabis plant. Needless to say, this is false. Although relativity new to the Western Hemisphere, hemp seed oil is now widely available in health-food stores.
Balance is keyThe seed of the hemp plant contains some of the most balanced and richest sources of oils on the planet. The ideal 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 is recommended by theWorld Health Organizationfor optimal utilization. The essential fatty acids in these oils are fundamental in restoring health and immune function. Hemp seed oil contains 80 percent essential fatty acids, the highest of any plant.
Be sure to get your daily EFAsHemp seed oil’s exceptional concentrations of EFAs (essential fatty acids) are what make it so special. In concept, this oil could provide all of our EFA necessities for life. Essential fatty acids are the omega fats that cannot be produced by the body and must be ingested. They are known for their role in preventing heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cancer, arthritis and much more.The seven-time Nobel Prize nominee, Dr. Johana Budwig, a pioneer of EFA research, reported success in treating heart infraction, arthritis, cancer, and other common diseases with massive doses of EFAs.Essential fatty acids are indispensable for the function and development of the brain and nervous system and the production of healthy cell membranes. They also supply hair and skin with necessary nutrients and aid in various other functions in the body.
An alternative to fish oilFish oil supplements are a great source of EFAs, particularly Omega 3s, which is why they have become so popular. However, for those who are vegetarian, they are not an option. There are also concerns that some sources of fish oil are contaminated with mercury and other toxins. Hemp seed oil, which contains Omega 3, 6, and 9, is a great alternative that will provide the same benefits as fish oil without the danger of ingesting toxins.
Hemp seed oil for hair, skin, and nailsHair, skin, and nails are all formed from the same line of dermal cells, so it is no surprise that people who use hemp oil report thicker and shinier hair, softer skin, and stronger nails. Since hemp seed oil is nearly identical to our own lipids, it is capable of penetrating our cells and lubricating the surfaces between them. It is used to nourish not only dry skin but blotches and lesions as well. It can detoxify the skin and even out skin tone. You can safely use hemp oil as a skin moisturizer without worry of it clogging the pores.
EczemaOf the many possible uses of hemp oil as a direct treatment, its efficacy at treating eczema is one of the most promising. Researchers, led by Dr. J. Callaway at the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Clinical Nutrition at the University of Kuopio, Finland, studied the benefits of hemp seed oil on patients with atopic dermatitis (eczema) and reported the following results: “We saw a remarkable reduction in dryness, itching and an overall improvement in symptoms.
”Special properties of hemp oil:-Only plant containing vitamin D, which is necessary for calcium absorption-Contains vitamin E in advantageous amounts-Relives premenstrual stress-Has unequaled anti-inflammatory properties not found in other oils-Is a natural sunblockSecond to noneHemp seed oil products are true superfoods that are brimming with greatness. When speaking of hemp seed oil Dr. Callaway also remarked, “I’d have to conclude that this is probably the healthiest oil on the market.”Sources for this article include:http://www.earthlybody.comhttp://www.nutraingredients.comhttp://www.regenerativenutrition.com/content.asp?id=64http://www.hemp-guide.com/hemp-oil-benefits.htmlhttp://www.downtoearth.org
