Health benefits:


Hemp seed oil is a rich source of omega-6 (up to 62 per cent) and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids (up to 23 per cent). Hemp seed oil is rich in chlorophyll and vitamin E and has only trace amounts of salicylates, making it a good low salicylate option for people with eczema and chemical intolerance.


Flaxseed is the richest source of plant-based omega-3 (even richer than chia seeds and hemp seeds) and it has potent anti- inflammatory, mood-boosting and skin hydrating effects. This little brown (or golden) seed is rich in vitamin B1, magnesium, manganese, copper, selenium and zinc and 23 per cent of the seed is gooey mucilage which can lower cholesterol and reduce diabetes risk and blood glucose levels.
