What is

HempOmega?

The Essentials

We need fat and cholesterol for proper brain and body function. Not all fat is bad. Polyunsaturated fats are essential for the body’s nutritional harmony, helping to maintain proper cardiovascular health, reduce inflammation, reduce symptoms of depression, and deliver other significant benefits, including lowered cholesterol, lower glycemic levels, regulate body weight and relief from the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. The most important fats, and also the best fats for you, are polyunsaturated fatty acids, which make up 40% of a hemp seed.

We rely on these fatty acids for optimal health but unfortunately they are not actually produced by the body, and therefore must be consumed and supplemented from the food you eat.

At present, omega essential fatty acids (EFAs) are primarily sourced from marine life, raising valid concerns about sustainability, environmental impact, and contamination from industrial pollution. Fish oil omegas present additional challenges, including fishy taste and smell, incompatibility with vegetarian and vegan diets, mixing difficulty when adding to beverages and other liquids, and finally, a short shelf life due to rapid oxidation. Hemp Seed Oil is an excellent source of these essential fatty acids (EFAs) also known as omegas 3, 6 and 9. However, hemp seed oil, like other omega oils, presents unique formulary challenges when trying to add this product into various health food and beverage applications.

The Formula

HempOmega is a superior formula extracted from the same 100% Non-GMO Canadian Hemp Seeds as the hemp seed oil used in the studies below. It is a proprietary microencapsulation process transforms omega-rich hemp oil into a homogenous, water-soluble powder that can be added directly into new or existing foods, beverages, cosmetics and nutraceuticals without the negative consequences of marine-based omegas.

 

This microencapsulation process delivers several significant benefits. Shelf life is dramatically increased over existing formulations, and HempOmega can be flash and UHT pasteurized. Blending is easy due to HempOmega’s industry-exclusive water solubility, and no solvents or detergents are needed. Formulations can be easily tailored with the addition of vitamins and flavours, and high bioavailability means that these beneficial acids remain in the body longer.
