The Perfect Balance

Hemp Seed Oil is nature’s most perfectly balanced plant oil because it has a very healthy 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3.  In the modern diet, the ratio of Omega 6 to 3 can be as distorted as 20:1 (trans fats, and processed vegetable fats being to blame for this). Views vary, but most agree that the ratio should be between 5:1 and 3:1. Hemp seed oil is known to contain up to 5% of pure GLA, a much higher concentration than any other plant.  GLA has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body.

Understanding Fats and Essential Fatty Acids

A modern obsession has developed with fats. “Low-fat” has become part of the modern culture. But there are many misunderstandings about the different types of fats, their impact upon health and their role in therapeutic nutrition. Essential Fatty Acids are an essential for health and vitality.  They cannot be made by your body, so they need to be included in your diet. They are often referred to as the “Good Fats”. This special group of fats that deserve most attention when it comes to health and nutrition. Essential fatty acids fall into two groups omega 3 and 6 (parent essential fatty acids), and your body uses them to make derivatives of these.

“Bad fats”

Processed / synthetic fats are generally referred to as:

  • Hydrogenated fats
  • Partially Hydrogenated fats / shortening
  • Trans fats
  • Trans saturated fatty acids

These should be completely eliminated from your diet if you want to achieve optimum health and vitality. Even those saying for example “virtually free from trans fats” should be left out of your shopping basket, checking labels is essential. Hydrogenated fats have absolutely no nutritional benefit, and are in fact harmful. Synthetic fats form new molecular structures unacceptable to the human physiology. Evidence continues to grow about the health risks (although researchers began to document the risks back in the 70s). The soaring rates of health conditions such as heart disease go hand in hand with the dramatic rise in processed vegetable oils and are nothing to do with the consumption of natural fats such as butter. We don’t have to go back very far to find evidence of diets extremely high in saturated fats, and yet a low incidence of heart disease. Even today, we can find groups of people with high fat diets, and still a low incidence of heart disease, obesity and other conditions often associated with saturated fats. This is called the “French Paradox”.

“Good fats”

So let’s look at the natural fats

These fall into three main headings (sub headings will be looked at below):
  • Saturated
  • Monounsaturated
  • Polyunsaturated

Saturated Fats

Saturated fats are solid in form, when stored at room temperature. Subject to intense negative publicity, probably even more so than trans fats, saturated fats are much misunderstood. Lard and Butter for example are natural saturated fats, and in moderation are perfectly healthy .

Monounsaturated fats

These can be found in some healthy oils, and foods such as olives, almonds, pecans and avocados. Olive Oil is a key part of the Mediterranean diet known for its health benefits.

Polyunsaturated Fats

They are found in various vegetable oils, corn, sunflower, safflower, sesame and soy. Most polyunsaturated fats are weighted far too heavily towards omega 6. While some are better than others, some should be avoided completely, especially when refined and processed.

Essential Fatty Acids

  • ALA – (alpha-linolenic acid) is a “short chain” fatty acid found in plant sources, such as hemp seed oil, flaxseed oil and walnuts. Unique to plants, even those who eat a lot of fish would be well advised to ensure adequate intake.
  • EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are “long chain” fatty acids found in fish, the best sources being salmon, sardines, mackerel, herring, halibut and sea bass
The science is complex, however, in short, if you’re consuming good quantities of ALA (short chain), this converts to EPA and DHA in the body.
