Hemp Oil – Nature’s most nutritionally balanced oil
What is it?
Hemp is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. Our oil is made from the seeds which are nearly 50% oil, and of this, 75% is essential fatty acids. The oil contains the perfect balance of Omega 3:6, and contains the highly sort after Omega 6 GLA (gamma-linoleic acid) and Omega 3 SDA (stearidonic acid). These EFAs are not found in the more common plant oils, such as linseed. Hemp oil is naturally rich in Vitamin E, a natural anti-oxidant which helps to protect the delicate Omega-3 within the oil. This makes the oil very stable so it has a much longer shelf life than linseed oil, and is also more nutritious.
What is it for?
Our Hemp Oil can be fed to improve skin, coat & feather condition, support joints, growth, immunity, fertility and brain development. As a natural source of GLA, Hemp oil also benefits the body by inhibiting the production of leukotrienes. (leukotrienes are associated with inflammatory reactions, allergies & respiratory conditions) Recent press coverage is seeing a boom in the use of Hemp in the UK as many owners report fantastic results and improvements in their animals health and well being.
Research has shown that feeding Hemp oil to chickens can increase the Omega 3 content of their eggs, making a healthier meal for us too!
If you are looking to feed a natural diet, which is chemical free and produced in a way that is kind to the environment, hemp seed oil is the ideal choice.
