Omega-3 Supplements: Hemp Seed Oil vs. Fish Oil
3 Reasons to Use Hemp Seed Oil Instead of Fish Oil for Omega 3 Supplementation
OMEGA 3 & GLA IN HEMP SEED OIL
The Brothers Green Hemp Seed Oil contains the Omega 3 type SDA and GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid, an Omega 6 proven to be anti-inflammatory) which is not contained in fish oil. Hemp Seed Oil is also extremely low in carbs.
Other foods that contain Omega 3 include flax seeds, chia seeds & salmon.
1. OXIDISATION & RANCID OILS
Fish oil is often not fresh and can easily turn rancid when exposed to oxidative stress. Fish oil can also often repeat on us, leaving an aftertaste that is far from pleasant!
Hemp Seed Oil is completely plant based & vegan, mild tasting with a nutty & earthy flavour that leaves no aftertaste. The Brothers Green Hemp Seed Oil is freshly grown and processed in North Canterbury, New Zealand with strict adherence to expiry dates.
2. MULTIPLE USES INCLUDING SKINCARE
Would you ever use fish oil on your skin? No? Read on.
The Brothers Green Hemp Seed Oil can be used topically on the skin also and forms the basis for many unique NZ skincare brands. The Hemp Seed Oil makes a great moisturiser and can be anti-inflammatory for many skin conditions topically and through internal ingestion. (1)
3. SUSTAINABILITY & ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
Fish oil - Watch Seaspiracy on Netflix! Humanity places a huge burden on the oceans. The majority of plastic and rubbish in the sea comes from the commercial fishing industry.
The Brothers Green Hemp Seed Oil comes from plants that are grown in the pristine area under the Southern Alps of New Zealand using practises that utilise minimal amounts of water and don’t use chemicals. Hemp itself acts as both a carbon sink and a nitrogen fixer - removing chemicals from both the atmosphere and soil.
