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.
