Hemp Seed Oil – Omega 3 and 6
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.
Flax Seed Oil (linseed oil) – Omega 3
Flax Seed oil (linseed oil) is one of nature`s richest sources of lignans and a vegan method for getting Omega-3 fatty acids. It is an ideal vegetarian alternative to fish oil supplements.

Analysis of the powerful pigments found in pumpkin seed oil reveals a number of carotenoids – the main components being beta carotene and lutein.
