- Helps Reduce Harmful Cholesterol Levels
Hemp seed oil is an excellent source of three polyunsaturated fatty acids: linoleic acid (omega-6), alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3), and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Polyunsaturated fats are a type of essential healthy fat. Consuming polyunsaturated fats helps reduce harmful cholesterol levels in your blood.
- Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Gamma-linoleic acid is anti-inflammatory. This means GLA may help reduce symptoms of inflammatory conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis. These anti-inflammatory properties can act as a form of natural pain relief.
- Supports Healthy Skin
Consuming hemp seed oil may help improve eczema, psoriasis, and acne symptoms. Dr. Maura Henninger, a Naturopathic Doctor in New York City, states, “This oil (hemp seed oil) is particularly good for people prone to redness and skin irritations like eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis because it’s high in omega-3 and -6 fatty acids that help to hydrate the skin. It’s also beneficial for acne-prone patients because of its antibacterial properties, thanks to those same omega acids”.
- Boosts Heart Health
Omega-3 fatty acids improve heart health and reduce the risk of issues such as heart disease. Hemp seed oil contains high levels of omega-3s and the ideal omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids ratio. Hemp seed oil also contains high arginine levels, an amino acid that turns into nitric oxide within the body. Nitric oxide supports healthy blood vessel walls by keeping them smooth and elastic.
- Protects the Brain
Fatty acids are essential for healthy brain function. A 2018 study showed that an increased intake of omega-3 aids in various neurodegenerative and neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s. Hemp seed oil could help prevent inflammation in the brain, which prevents learning and spatial memory damage
