Cold pressed hemp oil has a rich, nutty flavour and plenty of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids – which are required in our diets more than any vitamin, yet our body does not naturally produce them. Many people are deficient owing to a high intake of processed or animal fats, over plant fats.
Hemp seed oil has been dubbed ‘nature’s most perfectly balanced oil’, due to its perfect ratio of Omega 6 : Omega 3 (3:1) – the optimum requirement for long term healthy human nutrition. Extensive studies have demonstrated that many common illnesses are related to deficiencies or imbalances of specific fatty acids in the body. They are also important for healthy skin and a strong immune system.
