Health benefits of hemp seed oil:
Hemp has high content of beta-carotene, vitamins E, A and C, and trace minerals like potassium, phosphorous, sulphur, magnesium and calcium.
The raw hemp oil is bursting with omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids that have a major role in preventing a coronary heart disease, as well as calming the nerve system and dermatological inflammations (due to the lipid metabolism followed by the break-down of fatty acids).
Owing to the sterols that are present in hemp seeds, the plant has cholesterol-lowering properties. According to experts, consuming sterols more often can fairly decrease the chance of having a heart attack.
Hemp seeds contain aliphatic alcohols which also help reduce cholesterol, as well as platelet aggregation. The alcohol composition includes phytol which is related to anticancer and anti-oxidant properties.
Hemp seed oil can help you battle degenerative illnesses such as Alzheimer’s and atherosclerosis.
