Hemp Seed Oil is recognized by the World Health Organization as a natural anti-oxidant and the only balanced (perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3) source of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) and is also a good source of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA).

Hemp Seed Oil should be taken daily because EFAs support the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune and nervous systems. Essential Fatty Acids are also needed for proper growth in children, particularly for neural development and maturation of sensory systems, with male children having higher needs than females. Foetuses and breast-fed infants also require an adequate supply of EFAs through the mother's dietary intake.

While there are many sources for Omega-3 PUFA in the diet, Hemp Seed Oil is exceptionally rich in these compounds, which are usually present in the nutritionally optimal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 PUFA (LA to LNA) of 3:1 (Erasmus, 1999). LA concentrations normally range from 52-62% of total fatty acid composition while LNA concentrations ranges from 12-23%.

The proportions of EFAs in Hemp matches the ratios that have been determined by nutritionists to be most beneficial to human nutrition. Hemp seed oil contains omega 6 and Omega 3 EFAs in an ideal long term ratio of three to one (3:1). It also provides the derivative Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). Its content of GLA makes it unique among edible seed oils. No other common seed contains GLA. Hemp seed oil's unusually well balanced profile means that one could use it for a lifetime without ever suffering an EFA deficiency.
What's so Great about EFAs?
You need EFAs in your diet more than any other vitamin. Many researchers are linking EFA deficiencies with a variety of degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, skin afflictions, multiple sclerosis, PMS, behavioral problems, poor wound healing, arthritis, glandular atrophy, weakened immune functions and sterility (especially males). Lack of oxygen is a key factor in degenerative diseases and EFAs help bring oxygen into our system. EFAs serve what seems to be an unending list of vital functions in the body. Here's a sample of some of them:
Suggested Daily Oil Dosage
* Always taken with food
This amount should provide between 8 to 16 grams of Omega 6 EFA and between 3 to 6 grams of Omega 3 EFA in a normal adult body.
Storage Suggestions 
Due to the high content of precious fragile EFAs, Hemp Seed Oil should never be used for frying or cooking, however it can be poured over pasta to give extra flavour. It may be used straight (1-2 tablespoons per day, or as directed by a doctor) or in place of all other vegetable oils i.e. salad dressings, sauces, marinades and low temperature cooking (below 25˚C).
Hemptons' organic Hemp Seed oil is cold-pressed at temperatures below 20˚ Celsius in an oxygen-free environment and nitrogen capped to maintain freshness.

Hemp Seed Oil requires cool and dark storage conditions - it is the very thing that makes Hemp Seed Oil such a valuable product that makes it vulnerable to spoilage - its high Essential Fatty content.
