What do hemp health products actually do?
Hemp oil really is an amazing substance which can do wonders for our health, both internally and externally. But what are the actual effects of hemp health products?
Hemp oil contains both Omega 3 and 6 which are widely known to be very important for maintaining healthy skin. These fatty acids nourish and moisturise the skin either by taking the oil in capsule form or via the variety of skin products like face creams and body creams made from hemp oil. It is also an ideal massage oil, giving healthy and rich skin which also creates an anti-aging benefit too when used regularly. Due to the Linoleic acid present hemp oil can also prevent skin disorders like psoriasis, eczema, acne and dry skin.
Hemp oil can also be found in many non-commercial and herbal hair products like shampoos, hair oils and conditioners. Similar to the skin care, massages with hemp oil products can improve blood circulation in the head and the brain. Washing hair with hemp oil shampoos and conditioners can help to thicken the hair and can also be great at reducing dandruff. The benefits also include effective treatment of scalp infections and even hair loss.
Linoleic acid, one of the main constituents of hemp oil is an Omega-3 fatty acid that is essential in maintaining healthy organ function. It can help prevent heart disease, arthritis and depression, according to a study undertaken at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Lipoprotein cholesterol, the “bad” cholesterol that clogs arteries can be limited through taking hemp oil via the many forms available.
Hemp oil has a protein content of about 25%. This high-quality protein provides amino acids in ratios similar to animal based protein such as meat or eggs. The structure of hemp oil proteins makes them easily digestible. Compared to other oils, hemp oil provides the protein and amino acids the body needs without adding unnecessary calories.
