Essential fatty acids (EFA’s) play an important role in metabolism, cell growth, and general brain functioning. Without an adequate intake of omega-3 & 6 EFAs, the human body is unable to function properly. Since 60 percent of the human brain consists of fats, an imbalance in the ratio of omega-3: omega-6 in a persons diet can lead to reduced brain function and problems such as depression and poor concentration. EFA's may also assist in the treatment of degenerative conditions, inflammation, and high blood pressure.
Hemp seed oil provides an unusually high percentage of unsaturated fats, with a ratio of 3:1 of omega-6 and omega-3 EFA's, making it one of the most balanced oils available for human nutrition. Together with its gamma linolenic acid (GLA) content, hemp seed oil may help support the functioning of cardiovascular, immune, reproductive, and nervous systems.
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 seed. You will not get ‘high’ from ingesting hemp seed oil.
Virgin hemp seed oil is a healthy and sustainable source of essential fatty acids. Credé Hemp Seed Oil is cold-pressed and unrefined.
