Go native with Medicine Wheel Supplements Vegan Hemp Seed Oil. Hemp seed oil is reputed to be the most unsaturated oil derived from the plant kingdom. The essential fatty acids (EFAs) in hemp seed oil, such as linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid are required in our diet more than any other vitamin, yet our bodies do not naturally produce them. They must be obtained from external sources in the food we eat. Native Vegan Hemp Seed Oil has been formulated from vegan seeds to bridge the nutritional gap and provide enough EFAs to help maintain sound health and wellness.
EFAs are involved with making life’s energy through the human body, and without them, life is not possible. In general, North Americans have a high dietary deficiency in EFAs due to the intake of animal fats versus plant fats, caused by our high consumption of processed foods and meats versus natural organic foods. Consider as an alternative to fish oil.
Vegan Hemp seed oil has been dubbed “Nature’s most perfectly balanced oil” because it contains the perfectly blended balanced 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 (linoleic / LA) to Omega 3 (alpha-linolenic / LNA) essential fatty acids, determined to be the optimum requirement for long-term healthy human nutrition. In addition, it also contains smaller amounts of 3 other polyunsaturated fatty acids in Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), oleic acid, and stearidonic acid. These EFA combinations in this hemp seed oil are unique among edible oil seeds (see nutritional composition)
Extensive studies have demonstrated that many common illnesses are related to deficiencies or imbalances of specific fatty acids in the body. Symptoms are often related to a lack of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids and their derivatives, the prostaglandins. Most people that eat a healthy diet including a balanced ratio of essential fatty acids also have healthy skin and a strong immune system. Taking this hemp seed oil dietary supplement will help maintain the balance of EFAs and enable you to get maximum health benefits.
