A blooming field of borage with its royal purple color is unmistakable in appearance. Close up inspection reveals something even more dramatic; blooms which are bright fluorescent blue in colour, hold the beginnings of a new crop of seed in its early stages of development. At maturity, these oil rich seeds are expeller pressed yielding an oil which is highly prized by healthfood manufacturers. It also receives focused attention from mainstream and alternative healthcare practitioners. The most notable essential fatty acid GAMMA LINOLENIC ACID draws the interest of researchers around the world.

Hemp can be accurately described as an old crop with a new beginning. Traditionally hemp was used for its fiber but now is recognized for its nutritional benefits. Hemp food products are grabbing the spotlight in grocery and natural healthfood stores throughout North America and beyond.

Why hempseed oil? The answer lies within the essential fatty acid profile. A well balanced diet ratio of Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s not usually found in other plant based oils. Nutritionists recommend a daily intake ratio of Omega 6 and 3 to be approximately 5 to 1. Hempseed oil, with its 3 to 1 is the closest to this range in a naturally occurring oil.

Health Canada, a federal Canadian government agency, provides strict guidelines for growing and processing hemp seed.

If you have ever had the opportunity to travel across western Canada in mid July, you will certainly have come across a scene in which you will have slowed down or even stopped to take a closer look at a sea of blue flowers gently swaying in the sun. THIS IS FLAX. This is the crop that has gained so much popularity in recent times because of its nutritional value noted mainly for its high content of the Omega 3 essential fatty acid, ALA (alpha linolenic acid).
