Six Surprising Benefits Of Hemp Oil

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the amazing benefits of hemp products like hemp oil and hemp seeds. However, its link to the cannabis plant remains a barrier to this superfood.

But researchers are continuing to discover new benefits of the hemp seed and its derivatives. So, today, I want to share six of these.

 

Six amazing benefits of hemp

1. Hemp is loaded with minerals, vitamins and fibre

Man has been using the hemp for its superb nutritional benefits for over 3000 years! In fact, the Ancient Chinese relied on both oil and seeds as a medicine. This is because it’s a rich source of fibre, vitamins C, E and A, minerals such as sulphur, potassium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.

2. It reduces bad cholesterol

Both hemp oil and seeds have the power to break down bad cholesterol. The fat profile of hemp seeds helps fend off a variety of conditions like blood clotting and heart attack caused by very high cholesterol. 

3. It is an antioxidant powerhouse

Hemp packs high levels of vitamin E – an essential antioxidant. Furthermore, it contains tocopherol, which has the power to improve conditions like atherosclerosis and Alzheimer’s. It also contains phytol, which has anticancer and antioxidant properties.

4. It helps reduce inflammation

Hemp oil boast an array of alcohols and plant sterols that fight inflammation. Inflammation is the main cause of a wide range of chronic diseases. Hemp oil contains the perfect balance, a 3:1 ratio of the two essential fatty acids, omega-3 and omega-6. Did you know that no other nut or vegetable oil contains this ratio? Yes, it’s true!

5. It enhances skin health

Taking hemp oil can drastically help improve clinical symptoms of atopic dermatitis. This is due its abundant and balanced supply of polyunsaturated fatty acids.

6. It improves degenerative diseases

Hemp oil has wonderful pharmaceutical value for degenerative chronic diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis as well as certain cancers.

There’s no time to waste. It’s time to start using hemp products right away!
