Flaxseed oil contains EFA’s too but not in the correct proportions and is not suitable for long-term use as a regular dose can result in an imbalance in your body’s EFAs. Hempseed oil has the right makeup to be the perfect supplement to take daily or used to prepare food – a good alternative to olive oil.
For those who want to retain a sharp mind and efficient nervous system, EFA’s can provide great sustenance for these systems. Hempseed oil contains a large proportion of EFA’s – over 80%!
The human body cannot metabolize EFA’s so they must come from diet alone; in North America and much of the western world, junk/processed foods do not contain these EFA’s as they can only be sourced from plants and not animals.
This makes hempseed oil in the diet not just a sensible idea, but a smart way to stay healthier and live longer through eating a healthy diet.
Unlike most Fish Oils that you have to hold your breath to consume, hempseed oil actually tastes great! Hempseed oil can be added to food as-is to enhance flavor (but is not suitable for frying), or taken as a supplement instead; it also makes a good salad dressing. With only a small amount required, hempseed oil is easy to add to any diet. In addition to the dietary benefits of hempseed oil, it can be used to treat eczema and other skin complaints.
Rather than just taking hempseed oil as a supplement, there are a number of foods that can be made from hempseed, such as: Hemp Salad Dressings, Hemp Pasta, Hemp Pesto, Hemp Snacks, Spiced Hemp Seeds, Hemp Ice Cream, Hemp Snack Bars, Hemp Bread, Toasted Hemp Seeds, Hemp Chocolates Hemp Milk, and more!
Hempseed flour can be used to make delicious breads and pastries; with the oil being used to make a tasty butter. Many other vegetarian friendly products like tofu can also be made from hempseed products.
