What makes Hemp seed oil is truly unique? Approximately 80 per cent is polyunsaturated fat– the highest of any vegetable oil. Specifically, it contains the essential fatty acids (EFAs) linoleic acid (omega- 6) and alpha linolenic acid (omega- 3). These EFAs cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained from our diets. Hemp seed oil also contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA), from which omega- 6 is naturally converted. Modern day diets and sluggish enzyme activity often impair this conversion and cause GLA deficiency. Hemp seed oil solves this problem. No other single source oil has this ideal combination of EFAs!
