Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) and Linolenic Acid (LA) in hemp oil help to maintain normal blood cholesterol levels. Our bodies can not produce these fatty acids so they need to be ingested. A beneficial effect occurs when 2g of ALA-D or 10g of LA, or 19g of hemp oil is consumed daily. A varied and well balanced diet plus a healthy lifestyle are also important. We recommend using hemp oil in porridge, pastas and salads. It can also be used as an essential oil in skin and hair care.
Hulled hemp seeds have a delicious nutty taste. They are an ideal source of protein for vegetarians and vegans as they replace animal proteins. As they contain plenty of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, try adding them to yoghurt, cereals and salads as a garnish. These seeds are also ideal for instant consumption.
