How does fish oil compare to hemp seed oil?

In spite of the importance of adding Omega 3 to our diets, until recently, there were significant risks associated with taking fish oil supplements.

This is because fish oils that haven’t been molecularly distilled contained high levels of dangerous contaminants. This is especially true for fish harvested in the North Atlantic Ocean and farmed salmon. Even the North Atlantic around the Artic circle is notorious for producing fish that have high levels of heavy metals, such as mercury, as well as PCB’s and dioxin.

These risks still exist today… in most fish oil supplements. Plus, most fish oil on the market today is actually a mixture of all types of fish from all around the world — and many, unfortunately, come from polluted waters. Molecular distillation by a competent manufacturer should remove these contaminants. Nonetheless, it is still desirable to start the process with the least contaminated fish possible. Better still, seriously consider a safer source altogether.

Our hemp seed oil is an excellent alternative to fish oil. Not only does it contain rich and balanced Omega 3 and Omega 6 EFA’s, it tastes great and you’ll be helping to save our planet’s depleting fish stocks!

More About Hemp Oil

Hemp seed oil is produced by pressing the hemp seed. The oil can be eaten on its own, blended into other food or used in body care products. Hemp seed oil has a unique fatty acid profile especially when compared to other oils. Hemp seed oil contains over 90% Poly-unsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs) of which 80% of the oil is comprised of the Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), omega-6 Linoleic Acid (LA) and omega-3 Alpha-Linoleic Acid (ALA). Hemp oil is rich in LA (over 55%) and contains, depending on plant variety, 15-20% ALA. Hempseed oil is low in saturated fat (SAT), which constitutes only 8% of total fatty acids. Also unique to hemp oil is the naturally-occurring Super Omegas Stearidonic Acid (SDA) and Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) which help the body convert the benefits of Omega-3 & Omega-6 EFA’s more efficiently. GLA may be as high as 5%, but is usually between 2 – 4%. The presence of SDA is upwards of 3%. Due to factors like age, genetics, diet and lifestyle, we don’t all process these good fats the same way. SDA and GLA help everyone maximize the benefits of Omega EFA’s. The World Health Organization’s 2003 report on diet, nutrition, and the prevention of chronic disease reported that in 2001, chronic diseases contributed approximately 60% of all deaths worldwide and 46% of the total burden of disease. Almost half of these deaths are from cardiovascular diseases, obesity and diabetes. The WHO estimates that chronic disease will account for 70% of all deaths worldwide by 2020. Certain fats and oils can significantly reduce the risk of several diseases and even contribute to the treatment of chronic conditions. Clinical research suggests that the PUFAs GLA (omega-6), ALA (omega-3) and to a limited extent SDA, show varying levels of promise in the prevention of cardiovascular disease, inflammation, diabetes and hypertension. Many countries and international organizations have made formal population-based dietary recommendations for omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids. Recommendations have typically been between 0.8 to 1.1 grams per day of ALA. Omega-6 and omega-3 EFAs work synergistically at the cellular level and an excess of either can cause an imbalance in metabolism. Currently, the average North American diet skews heavily toward omega 6 intakes. A 1:1 to 5:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 in the diet is generally considered to be optimum. The World Health Organisation (Sweden/Japan) recognises this optimum ratio to be 3:1. Studies in western populations today show that a typical diet has a ratio range of 10:1 to 20:1. Hemp seed oil with its 3:1 ratio is the closest naturally-occurring oil to this ideal range. Nutritionists generally recommend that, for EFAs to provide optimal cell function, daily requirements should range from 7 to 11 g of LA and from 2 to 3.5 g of ALA. This can be obtained from one to two tablespoons of hemp seed oil per day, taken orally or by adding to marinades and salad dressings. It may also be added to protein shakes and smoothies.
