Hemp Seed Oil for Omega-3

Apr 25 08:13 2012 Justin Kander Print This Article

Hemp seed oil is the best source of Omega-3 and Super Omega-3 for the human population, as well as other types of essential fatty acids necessary for health.

One of the leading causes of heart disease and many other chronic inflammatory conditions is the overabundance of Omega-6 fatty acids in the diet.  Omega-6 is an essential fatty acid and is required for living,Guest Posting and the body does indeed require a large amount of it.  In fact, the body requires three times as much Omega-6 as Omega-3, and having a balance less or greater than that should be avoided.  Of course, getting an exact 3:1 ratio is difficult, but as long as you are around that, you are good.
The average American diet has a ratio of about 15 to 1, which is five times out of proportion.  The consequences for this can be debilitative or fatal, and this imbalance is one of the leading causes of inflammatory diseases in the nation.  Thankfully, there is a way to save yourself from this fate, and it is with the power of hemp seed oil.  This is the best oil you can use for getting the most natural, clean, and effective Omega-3 fatty acids, and there are specific properties of this oil that make it preferable to alternatives.
One of the best properties of hemp seed oil is that it contains multiple types of Omega-3.  Whereas flax seed oil only contains ALA Omega-3, hemp seed contains that form along with SDA, which is also known as "Super Omega-3".  This form of Omega-3 helps metabolize other forms of fat, and thus is great for losing weight.  When the body's metabolism increases, it burns energy more efficiently, and helps the body take on a weight and appearance that is ideal to health.  In addition, while it is not an Omega-3 fatty acid, there is also Super Omega-6 GLA which can help with many of the same purposes as Omega-3, as well as enable the body to tolerate a slight imbalance of Omega fatty acids.  
Hemp seed is also very easy to grow organically, so unlike other crops which are often grown with health hazardous chemicals, virtually all hemp seed oils are certified organic.  Organic growing not only helps the Earth but can raise the nutritional value of crops grown in such a way, meaning that organic hemp seed oil is inherently quite powerful.  The most popular brands of hemp oil come from Nutiva and Manitoba Harvest, and these products can be found in nearly any supermarket and on many health food sites online.
