Unexpected benefit of taking Hemp seed and Hemp oil

So it’s true, I hate to admit it but yes folks I am well and truly into the age of menopause.  No big surprise here and i’m not alone I know.  So why bother to write my first blog about it?  Well I just wanted everyone to know about the unexpected benefit of taking Hemp seed and Hemp seed oil.  Drum roll please…….. NO MORE HOT FLASHES….

Yes it’s true.  No HRT, no expensive supplements, I just starting eating Hemp.  I didn’t even notice at first, just stop getting the flashes, then I stopped eating Hemp for a few weeks and you guessed.  They returned.

So I turned to Dr Google to do some research and found dozens of articles on Hemp and Menopause.  All the info was there right at my finger tips right along with why it helps, so below I have included a snippet from the web of knowledge.(Hope I have referenced correctly).

Very interested to receive any feed back from others who may have also reduced or stopped their hot flashes and if Hemp seed and oil is their daily diet.

*Hemp Seeds or Hemp Seed Oil.
Hemp contains the essential Omega 3 vitamins as well as vitamin E and GLA (hemp seed is one of the few plants that contains Gamma Linolenic Acid) Hemp seeds or using hemp seed oil will help with ALL menopause symptoms as when in menopause your body has difficulty converting LA to GLA so the GLA in the hemp seed provides it to your body by consuming the seeds or the oil.  Hemp seed is also great at combating inflammation due to the GLA as well as help to prevent or help with osteoporosis that can come at menopause.  Hemp also helps with depression and memory loss with the omega 3’s in this nutrient rich food.

      You should boost your natural omega-3 intake, limit your vegetable oil consumption and enhance your omega-6’s with GLA-rich foods like hemp seeds!

      According to the American Cancer Society, some researchers are providing evidence that many people with cancer, diabetes and skin allergies do not make enough GLA and could benefit from supplementation.

      In addition to helping cancer drugs work better, studies have actually shown that GLA can slow or stop cancer as a standalone treatment!

      GLA and GLA-rich foods like hemp seeds have also been observed to help people with:

      Breast pain
      Diabetes and diabetic neuropathy
      Heart disease
      High blood pressure
      Multiple sclerosis
      Premenstrual syndrome
      Rheumatoid arthritis
      Skin allergies
      7 Major Hemp Seed Benefits

      1. Hormones (GLA)

      Research in the 1980s observed that hormone-like substances called prostaglandins play a key role in helping the body function smoothly. It was discovered that prostaglandins help smooth muscles contract, control inflammation and body temperature, and are vital to other body functions.

      Hemp seed-rich GLA is known to be a necessary building block for some prostaglandins, and researchers have surmised that GLA supplementation is necessary for proper hormone health, which is probably why many women suffering from PMS have been helped by it.

      2. Arthritis and Joint Pain

      A 6 month study published in the journal of Arthritis and Rheumatism found that consuming the stand alone GLA found in hemp seeds reduced arthritis symptoms by 25% compared to the placebo at only 4%. This along with the fact that hemp seeds have an ideal ratio of omega-3/6 fats along with it’s other minerals help naturally reduce inflammation.

      For treatment take 1 tbsp of hemp seed oil daily along with a quality fish oil.

      3. Weight Loss

      Hemp is known as a natural appetite suppressant and can help you feel full longer and reduce sugar cravings. Some experts recommend that adding 4 tablespoons of the seeds to your breakfast will help curb excess hunger the entire day.

      4. Digestive Health

      High in insoluble and soluble fiber, hemp seeds provide more than enough bulk to keep your gastrointestinal system regular. Additionally, this healthy mixture of roughage feeds the probiotics in your gut and helps secure a robust immune system.

      5. Hair/Skin/Nails

      Hemp seed benefits for skin and hair go a long way at improving dry, red, flaking skin. Mostly used in high-end cosmetic products, hemp oil is oftentimes included in lip balms, lotions and soaps. The oil in the hemp seeds is known to penetrate the inner layers of the skin and promote healthy cell growth; the recipe for smooth, soft skin.

      Since hempseed oil is also good for skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema, it is a good idea to eat at least a couple tablespoons of hemp seed every day to maximize these benefits as well and then create a homemade skin cream combining hemp seed oil, shea butter and essential oils like lavender.

      6. Cancer

      Because of it’s perfect fatty-acid profile of omega-3 fats and GLA, this helps naturally balance inflammation levels and strengthen the immune system.

      The British Journal of Cancer reports that the THC in hemp seeds can stop and possibly reverse glioblastoma multiforme (a deadly form of brain cancer). The journal of Breast Cancer Research and Treatment confirmed the THC in hemp seeds improved advanced stage breast cancer. Researchers from the University of Rostock, Germany discovered the same hemp seed benefits for lung cancer.

      After evaluating the research consuming hemp seeds could be part of a healthy anti-cancer diet and natural treatment plan.

      7. Heart Health

      Some of the key ingredients in building a healthy heart include fiber, plant-based protein, healthy fats and eating less sugar. And hemp seeds help in doing all of those things.

      I recommend adding 2 tbsp of hemp seeds to a morning smoothie to naturally lower blood pressure, reduce LDL cholesterol, raise HDL cholesterol and improve triglycerides.”
