The Amazing Hempseed
A Nutritional Powerhouse
Hempseed is considered by leading researchers and medical doctors to be one of the most nutritious food sources on the planet. Shelled hempseed is packed with 33% pure digestible protein and is rich in iron and vitamin E as well as omega-3 and GLA. A recent report funded by the Canadian government states that hemp protein comprises 66% high-quality edistin protein, and that hempseed contains the highest percentage of this of any plant source. Unlike soy, hemp is not genetically modified, and it doesn't contain the anti-nutritional qualities commonly found in soy.
Got Your EFAs today?
Because the human body produces no Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), it is important that EFAs be consumed on a regular basis. It is estimated that more than 90% of Americans take in too little of one of the most important EFAs--omega-3--which is found in flax, walnuts, deep-water fish, and hempseeds. EFAs are the "good fats" that doctors recommend as part of a healthy, balanced diet. The quality of omega-3 is vital, and can be diminished by oxygen, heat, and light. Thus consume the freshest seeds possible and store them in a dark, cold environment such as a refrigerator. Nutiva obtains its seeds exclusively from Canada, and we date all our products. Great nutrition never tasted so good.

I've been a long time user of organic hemp oil! It both smells and tastes delicious. I find it almost like roasted nuts and sunflower seeds, both of which I really enjoy. This particular oil is a brilliant deep green color which also makes it ideal for adding as a decorative portion of a dish. I love using it on my salads and other vegetables above all else for food purposes and I work it into my skin following my morning shower for best results
If you're looking to branch out and try something a little different, mix the hemp oil with coconut oil- Nutiva Organic Hemp Oil 24 oz. + FREE 100% Cococare Coconut Oil - 4 fl oz! Not only does it taste wonderful but the moisture it adds to your skin is amazing. My skin normally dries and flakes in the summer from the heat but using this combination I've been able to keep peeling to a minimum. In foods, their heavy contrast makes for a great mix. Plus, they're both high in Omega-3 oils which is really important for heart health and immunity. It's a good way to balance out if you don't eat fish like me!

I just purchased this oil for my mother two weeks ago after reading most of the reviews and the reviews keep poring in!!
My mother is a cancer survivor and currently in good health except for some minor problems. She doesn't have much energy and has complained about her gastritis for years; no matter what she eats, she ends up with a sore stomach that burns. She's been taking the hemp oil just once a day and it has stopped the gastritis symptoms and she has more energy. She hasn't been able to eat raw onions in years; now she can with no after effects. This is just amazing, especially when you consider how long the doctors have been trying to treat it. I'm sure everyone may have different results, but it's a "miracle" for my mother!

5.0 out of 5 stars the best skin moisturiser in th world! May 5, 2013

I originally purchased this product to use as a supplement. However, very quickly I got tired of the taste. Not that there was anything wrong with it. It tastes great, very nutty, good as a salad dressing etc. But taking spoons full twice a day, along with other supplements, as a daily routine, got a bit much for me. I began to use it as a skin moisturizer and I must say, by far, the best product for that purpose. Unlike other oils that I used in the past this one absorbs rather quickly, leaving your skin smooth. Within minutes you may apply makeup over it without any trouble. You do not walk around feeling and looking greasy. I must also add, I had worked in cosmetic industry for years. So I am comparing this product to very expensive moisturizing creams by leading department store companies. This one, by far, wins over any other moisturizers in $60-80 price range.
