What is Hemp Seed Oil?
Metabolics Hemp Seed Oil is 100% pure and natural Cannabis sativa seed oil, which is cold pressed and food grade.
Hemp seed oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids, which supports your health in a number of ways. Hemp seed oil includes the Essential Fatty Acids Omega 6 & Omega 3 in a naturally occurring 3:1 ratio, which is considered an essential part of a balanced diet.
Hemp, one of the earliest known domesticated plants, has been cultivated for over 12,000 years and the seeds of the hemp plant have been a consistent staple in a variety of cuisines across the world for many years. The seeds have a mild, nutty flavour, which makes them popular in a range of recipes.
With the recent changes to Food Standards, certain hemp seed products are now permitted for human consumption. It is important to be aware that only the seeds of the hemp plant can be used for human consumption - extracts from the remainder of the plant are still considered a drug.
What is Hemp Seed Oil good for?
It is highly nutritious and is perfect in salad dressings, pasta dishes, marinades and smoothies. Hemp seed oil shouldn’t be used as a frying oil or at temperatures above 150°C. This particular product is cold pressed then refined to deliver an odourless and pale-yellow colour profile.
It is recommended that cold-pressed oils be kept in a cool dark place to maintain their freshness and achieve maximum shelf life. If refrigerated, bring to room temperature before using.
Metabolics Hemp Seed Oil contains Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 in the following percentages:
Omega 3 (Alpha-Linolenic) 14-30%
Omega 6 (Linoleic) 45-69%
Omega 9 (Oleic) 5-20%
Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.
Who is Hemp Seed Oil for?
Hemp Seed Oil should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet.
Hemp Seed Oil is a great way of contributing to the necessary levels of essential fatty acids as it is so easy to incorporate into food. It is an excellent way for people who are looking for dietary sources of essential fatty acids to include in their lifestyle.
