Omega-3 ALA |Omega-6 LA| Gamma Linolenic Acid GLA
Hemp seed contains 80 % of its fat as polyunsaturated fats the so called “healthy fats” providing the essential fatty acids Omega-3 ALA and Omega-6 LA in an ideal balance. In current Western diets the scale has tipped too far toward the omega-6s consumption revealing ratios up to 20:1 =0mega-6 to Omega-3. The WHO suggests increasing the intake of Omega-3s into the diets and thereby lower the ratio to 4:1 to increase health benefits. Hemp seeds deliver an ideal ratio of O-6:O-3= 3:1 to help correct the imbalance in the Western diet
Hemp seed stands out by providing Gamma Linolenic Fatty Acid GLA C18-3 (n-6) a rare fatty acid with anti inflammatory properties studied in the prevention of inflammatory diseases and heart disease.
