The benefits Of Hemp

Why Hemp?                                                                                                              

Due to its many benefits for health and nutrition, hemp seed oil has been called “Nature’s Perfect Food for Humanity”. This variety of Cannabis sativa was one of the first crops propagated by humanity, with its fiber initially spun from hemp around 10,000 years ago. This fast-growing plant has been used to make an almost infinite number of products, from paper and textiles to food, insulation, biofuel, and even biodegradable plastics. Yet, its unique biochemical signature and myriad applications make hemp far too powerful a plant to be ignored.

Hemp also has 80% essential fatty acid (EFA) content and could thus fulfill all amino and fatty acid requirements for a human diet. In particular, this oil contains a balanced ration of 3 to 1 omega-6 or linoleic acids to omega-3 or alpha-linolenic acids. Together, such EFAs help maintain homeostasis, immune systems, and overall cell, nerve, and brain function. However, they must be part of a regular diet as such acids cannot be produced by the human body. Another benefit is the presence of the rare globule edestins protein that helps prevent Eczema and other skin issues. Overall, hemp oil provides a plant-based, easily-digestible source for essential amino acids, super polyunsaturated fatty acids, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants like carotene and chlorophyll.

In addition, the well-balanced oil produced from its seeds contains many healthful nutrients and is low in saturated fats. Seeds are extracted through a rotating press that squeezes and separates out the oil using minimal heat to avoid destroying nutritional components. It may be cold pressed to create a green, nutty liquid or refined for a flavorless, colorless oil.

Due to its unique chemical composition, hemp really does represent an ideal source for human food, materials, health supplements, and much more. However, a blanket fear of cannabis in all its forms kept humanity from taking advantage of this crop in the recent past. In particular, governments and corporations alike were most likely involved in distracting people from hemp in favor of investing in more personally profitable crops. As such, recognizing the truths behind the common myths about this remarkable plant are essential to taking advantage of its many benefits – from better nutrition to a healthier lifestyle.

Hemp seed oil and fish oil are compared based on their Omega 3 content, but that is where the comparison ends. Unlike some fish oil products, hemp does not contain mercury. What fish are they getting oil from? Is it contaminated? Fish oil requires encapsulation in a nitrogen atmosphere to prevent it from becoming rancid and turning into a trans fat. Do you want to ingest that?

Omega-3 fatty acids are often touted for their ability to not just support metabolism, but also cardiovascular and overall health. In particular, there are three different types of omega-3 acids:

Plant-based alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)

Marine-based eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

Humans and other mammals cannot synthesize such acids on their own but instead get shorter chain acids in their diet and produce more complex ones from them. Whether or not these polyunsaturated fatty acids better one’s health, all dietary supplements are not created equally. There are some key differences between fish and hemp oil in particular that will likely affect which one you turn to for getting the omega-3 fatty acids that your body needs.

At first look, fish and hemp oil contain relatively similar amounts of omega-3 essential fatty acid (EFA). However, hemp edges out the competition with almost 85% percent EFAs – the highest of any plant-based source. The proportion also meets the standards set by the World Health Organization, namely to have a 3:1 balance of omega-6 to omega-3. Accordingly, in just one tablespoon of hemp seed oil, you will get more than an entire day’s worth of alpha-linolenic and linoleic fatty acids by FDA standards. Compared to similar plant-based oils, hemp overall delivers the highest percentage of EFAs, antioxidants, and phenolic compounds.

Many other factors make hemp seed oil the richest and best source for omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. Fundamentally, it is easily digested by omnivores, vegetarians, vegans, and those with food allergies alike. In addition, it contains lower levels of saturated fats than other options and contains compounds that soothe and protect the skin. Additional benefits include the healthier energy levels and organ function from better metabolism, as well as the reduced inflammation and increased hair and nail growth supported by gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Beyond these individual health concerns, growing hemp is more sustainable compared to harvesting fish oil, which upsets entire ecosystems for a substance that could be grown from plant life

Here are a few articles that shed some light on what is so bad about some fish oil.
