Pure Hemp seed oil is delicious, nutty, omega rich goodness!
Hemp seed oil nourishes your body whether you eat it or massage it into your skin. Hemp seed oil is considered a super-food, providing a range of necessary nutrients to energize and nourish – in particular as a great source of GLA (gamma linolenic acid) – an anti-inflammatory Omega 6.
Hemp seed oil contains essential fatty acids, omega 3,6 and 9 including GLA . In particular Omega 6 and Omega 3, “essential fats” are vital because our bodies cannot make them and so we need to get these from our diet. Unlike other sources of Omega essential fatty acids, hemp seed oil provides the ideal balance of Omega-6 to Omega-3 in a 3:1 ratio for optimal absorption which works to boost metabolism, support immunity and promote heart health. Ready for a healthy boost? Expect a buttery, herbaceous and nutty flavoured oil which contains 40% less saturated fat than olive oil.
This beautiful oil is cold pressed from Canadian hemp seeds, grown under the SAFE certification standards, which means it is grown using organic principles. We bottle here in New Zealand, nitrogen flush and double seal for freshness.
