What are the potential health benefits of using Hemp Seed Oil?
Studies show that the nutrients and minerals in Hemp Seed Oil can contribute to better skin, reduced inflammation and better heart health. According to WebMd, studies show that Hemp Seed Oil works to improve the cardio vascular system due to the amino acid, arginine, that is present in Hemp Seed Oil. This ingredient has been shown to contribute to a healthy cardiovascular system, as consuming foods with high arginine levels can help decrease the risk of heart disease.
Over time, excess inflammation in your body can contribute to a variety of diseases including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and asthma. It has been suggested that gamma linolenic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid found in Hemp Seed Oil, acts as an anti-inflammatory. Studies have also linked the omega-3 fatty acids in hemp with reductions in inflammation.
Spreading Hemp Seed Oil on your skin as a topical application can also reduce symptoms and provide relief for several types of skin disorders. One study showed that Hemp Seed Oil can act as an effective acne treatment, though more research is needed in this area. In addition, consuming Hemp Seed Oil was found to improve symptoms of atopic dermatitis, or eczema, due to the presence of the “good” polyunsaturated fats in the oil.
