Organic Hemp Seed Oil from Goji King


Organic Hemp Seed Oil

As name suggests, hemp seed oil comes from hemp seeds. It is cold-pressed using organic hemp seeds. Hemp seed oil has a mild, slightly nutty flavour and is ideal for salad dressings, mayonnaise, dips etc.

Hemp seed oil is nature's most balanced oil for human nutrition (3:1 LA to LNA ratio, the perfect balance of Omega 3, 6 and 9 EFA's to match your body's requirements) and is easily digestible. EFA's are essential for human health. The body is unable to produce them so the only way we can ensure that we get what we need to stay healthy is to include them in our diet. in fact this oil could provide all of our Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) requirements for life, due to the balanced 80% EFA content of the oil.

The oil can be used as part of a nutritional programme to maintain and improve good health. It is particularly beneficial for nourishing the skin, brain and joints.

Due to its high Essential Fatty Acid profile, this oil should not be heated as this will destroy the EFA's. So It is not suitable for frying as this reduces the benefits.
