Hemp seed has served as a primary famine food in China, Australia, and Europe as recently as World War 11. Hemp seed’s weight in oil is 30-35% which consists of 80% unsaturated EFAs linoleic acid (omega 6) and linolenic acid (omega 3).
The 80% EFAs in hemp-seed oil is the highest total percentage among the common plants used by man. Flax comes a close second at 72% EFAs. The supreme nutritional benefits of hemp seed oil are mainly due to the perfect ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids.
Essential fatty acids are key nutritional factors both before and during pregnancy. Organic hempseed oil provides a ‘toxin-free’ source of important EFAs which are ideally suited for those looking for suitable alternatives to fish oils. Hemp is the only edible seed containing GLA thus it makes a suitable choice to support the menstrual cycle. The fatty acid profile of hemp makes it more suitable than GLA for long term use. The magnesium rich chlorophyll contained in hemp seed oil can also promote a normal menstrual cycle.
