The cold pressed oil from nutrient dense hemp seeds is now available from premium supplement brand GO Healthy, providing a viable alternate source of Omegas 3, 6 and 9 for the seafood-averse.
GO Healthy’s new GO Hemp Seed Oil 1,100mg (RRP $29.99) is an extra virgin cold pressed oil extracted from seeds from the Hemp plant. Technically a nut, Hemp seeds are very nutritious and a rich source of essential Alpha-linolenic acid and Stearidonic acid (SDA) (Omega 3), Linoleic acid and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) (Omega 6), Oleic acid (Omega 9) and Vitamin E. The Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio in hemp seed oil is also one considered to be optimal for human health.
“Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are needed for all systems of the body to function normally, including the skin, circulatory system, hormones, joints and the brain,” explains GO Healthy’s resident naturopath Peta Teuma. “When people don’t have enough essential fatty acids in their diet, they may start to notice dry eyes, dry, inflamed skin, joint discomfort and a general disharmony in their wellbeing.”
GO Healthy’s GO Hemp Seed Oil 1,100mg is high-strength and cold pressed to keep the nutritional value of the seed intact. It can be a beneficial food for those requiring more Omegas in their diet but who have allergies or a disinclination toward seafood.
“Despite knowing that regular consumption of oily fish, nuts and seeds – the Mediterranean diet essentially – is great for our general health, it’s really uncommon for Australians to include these foods in their diet regularly. And for the many who do supplement their Omegas with fish oils, there can be a reluctance to use them regularly because of the fishy reflux taste which can develop. People who hate seafood tend to avoid fish oils, so this is where hemp seed oil can work perfectly,” Peta says.
Used as a medicine in China for at least 3,000 years, the Hemp plant is a member of the Cannabis plant family but does not have the same psycho-active effect of Marijuana.
Hemp is also considered a highly sustainable plant as it requires less water to grow than most plants and requires fewer chemicals as it naturally suppresses weeds. Hemp reduces carbon in the atmosphere by using its large lush leaves to pull carbon from the air and return it to the soil.
GO Healthy’s GO Hemp Seed Oil 1,100mg is available now in leading pharmacies.
