GIFT OF THE EARTH – HEMP SEED OIL
HEMP SEED OIL – contains all essential amino acids and essential fatty acids necessary to maintain a healthy life. The liver produces approximately 80% of the amino acids we need. The remaining 20% must be obtained from outside sources. These are called “essential amino acids”.
AMINO ACIDS :
* Chemical units of “building blocks” that make up proteins.
* Proteins make up muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, glands, nails, hair, body fluids and are essential to the growth of bones.
* Act as neurotransmitters or precursors to the neurotransmitters enabling the brain to receive and transmit messages.
* Next to water they make up the greatest portion of the body’s weight.
The complete protein in Hemp Seed Oil gives the body all essential amino acids required to maintain health. Hemp Seed Oil contains 80% E.F.A. (essential fatty acids), the highest percentage of E.F.A. in the vegetable kingdom. 63% is LINOLEIC ACID, crucial to a healthy nervous system and a normal flow of bioelectric messages through the membrane of each cell.
ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS:
* Govern growth, vitality and state of mind.
* Responsible for our immune system, involved in transferring oxygen from the air in our lungs to every cell in the body.
* Play a part in holding oxygen in the cell membrane where it acts as a barrier to invading viruses and bacteria, neither of which thrive in the presence of oxygen.
The surface activity of essential fatty acids provides the power to carry toxins to the surface of the skin, intestinal tract, kidneys and lungs, where they can be removed. No other single plant source provides complete protein in such an easily digestible form, nor has the oils essential to life in as perfect a ratio for human health and vitality.
