Increasingly it’s becoming common knowledge that essential fatty acids are vital for the health of your heart.
Some of the most important ingredients in maintaining a healthy heart include fibre, plant-based protein, healthy fats and consuming less sugar. Luckily for us, Hemp seeds and the oil they contain, help in doing all of those things.
Research in animals and humans is at an early stage but results so far strongly suggests that hemp seeds can improve cardiovascular health and high blood pressure, decrease the risk of blood clot formation and help the heart recover after a heart attack . The gamma-linolenic acid found in hemp seeds has also been linked with reduced inflammation, which may decrease the risk of diseases like heart disease. They’re also a great source of fibre and antioxidants.
This all sounds complicated but it isn’t really. When your arteries have a build-up of fat, your heart needs to work much harder to oxygenate your blood. When your heart has to work harder than it should, you get high blood pressure and this prevents the cells from getting the energy level needed to survive. Basically. So a simple supplement with hemp oil reduces the risk of heart disease and helps you and your heart stay healthy.
How much hempseed oil do you need to benefit the heart?
When it comes to taking hemp for maintaining heart health, just one or two servings a day is all it takes. That would be anywhere from 1-2 tablespoons of raw organic hempseed oil or 3 tablespoons of raw organic hempseeds.
Get your hemp seed oil from The Hemp Shop in capsules, liquid or pure form and help your heart stay healthy.
