Hemp Seeds for Beauty and Vitality
The critical importance of Essential Fatty Acids for healthy skin makes the oil in hemp seeds a highly effective skin care and cosmetic product. Hemp is the only food that supplies all dietary needs in one source – and the only food that can sustain human life without any other source of nutrition.
Hemp seeds are one of the most nutritious and easily digestible food on the planet, full of protein, essential amino acids and Essential Fatty Acids. They are also know as hemp hearts.
These oils can actually permeate through the skin and nourish skin cells directly. For this reason, hemp oil is beneficial for skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis not to mention full of anti-aging properties. For the health of skin and hair, nourishing and balancing hemp oil is now added to a multitude of soaps, shampoos, skin lotions, lip balms, conditioners and other natural skin-care products.
The Hemp seed is an excellent source of protein and contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and Essential Fatty Acids. Essential Fatty Acids are needed for the health of the heart and to lower total cholesterol, including LDL (bad) cholesterol by decreasing cellular build-up in the arteries. Because Essential Fatty Acids make up a large portion of the brain, hemp is especially beneficial for brain health, particularly memory function.
