COLD-PRESSED HEMP SEED OIL
Cold-pressed hemp seed oil is currently the most common variety on the market and the 
best known and widely used. It is extracted from industrially grown hemp seeds
(Cannabis Sativa), by cold pressing the seeds to release the oil inside. It is 
packed with nutrients and recognized as a powerful super-food worth adding to 
everyone’s diet.

Hemp Seed Oil is recognized by the World Health Organization as a natural anti-oxidant 
and is the only balanced (perfect 3:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3) source of Essential 
Fatty Acids. It is also a good source of Gamma-Linolenic Acid and contains a high content 
of the enzyme lipase, which is a superior non-invasive chelation therapy for removing 
plaque build-up from arteries and cell membrane. Hemp is also the only plant oil containing 
Vitamin D, which is necessary for Calcium absorption, especially useful to vegans.

These are some of the benefits and uses of cold-pressed hemp seed oil:
Boosts immune system
Powerful anti-inflammatory; eases arthritic pain
Lowers high blood pressure
Promotes cardiovascular health
Supports healthy metabolism & cell growth
Improves brain function & focus; helps to reduce ADHD symptoms
Protects the brain against age-related memory loss & decline
Promotes healthy skin & hair
Helps to lower the risk of certain types of cancer
Because hemp oil supports healthy pH levels in the body, and combats 
chronic inflammation, it helps to create an environment that discourages the growth of 
cancer cells and thus makes a great supplement for the prevention of cancer and overall 
health. 

Hemp seeds are also a great source of vitamin E and minerals, such as phosphorus, 
potassium, sodium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron and zinc.

Interestingly, eating hemp seeds may reduce your risk of heart disease.
The seeds contain high amounts of the amino acid arginine, which produces nitric oxide
in your body.
Nitric oxide is a gas molecule that makes your blood vessels dilate and relax, leading to 
lowered blood pressure and a reduced risk of heart disease.

The gamma-linolenic acid found in hemp seeds has also been linked to reduced
inflammation, which may decrease your risk of diseases like heart disease.

Hemp seeds may reduce symptoms associated with PMS and menopause, thanks to its 
high levels of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).

They are very rich in healthy fats, high-quality protein and several minerals.

 

THERE’S MORE TO PUMPKIN THAN MEETS THE EYE
You may think of pumpkin as a festive fall decoration or the ingredient for the perfect 
pie, but pumpkin has other uses. Pumpkin seed oil, for example, has certain health 
benefits.

Pumpkin seed oil is said to help promote urinary health and heart health. It’s full of 
vitamins and anti-inflammatory agencies, along with linoleic and oleic acid. 
                 Here’s what you need to know about this fruit’s potential health benefits.
                 Traditionally, pumpkin seed oil and pumpkin seeds in general have been said 
                  to boost mood and ward off depression. 

You may know that saturated fats aren’t good for healthy hearts. But it can still be 
confusing to know which fats are OK to eat. Pumpkin seed oil is actually an unsaturated 
fat, meaning it’s the “good” kind of fat. Unsaturated fats like pumpkin seed oil can actually 
promote a healthy heart.
Pumpkin seed oil, along with palmetto oil, has shown promising results as an alternative 
therapy for benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH). BPH is a common condition where the 
prostate becomes enlarged. This can be extremely painful and block the flow of urine.

In general, pumpkin seed oil seems to have a positive effect on the urinary tract. This 
tract is made up of the kidneys, the bladder, and the urethra, which connects the bladder 
to the urinary opening.
In one study, pumpkin seed oil was found to help relieve some of the symptoms of 
menopause. This included a decrease in hot flashes, joint pain, and headaches. The 
women taking pumpkin seed oil also had an increase in their HDL levels, which is the 
“good” cholesterol.

 

THE BEST OF CHILLIES (CAPSAICIN)
Low in calories. Jalapenos are very filling and satisfy hunger without increasing the 
calorie count. 

One serving of jalapenos contains 66 percent of vitamin C. Vitamin C could stimulate the 
immune system to produce white blood cells, which are the body’s first primary line of 
defense against illness.
Chillies contain vitamin C to fight free radicals that can help prevent the mutation of 
healthy cells into cancer cells.

Studies have suggested that chillies may provide pain relief for migraine headaches. 
Capsaicin is known to inhibit a key neuropeptide, Substance P, which is the critical brain 
pain transmitter.

Capsaicin is a potent anti-inflammatory agent. It inhibits Substance P, which is associated 
with inflammatory processes. Capsaicin could treat arthritis, psoriasis, and diabetic 
neuropathy one day.

Chillies provide the brain the necessary amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Some 
vitamins, including folate or folic acid, play a significant role in the regulation of specific 
amino acids that the nervous system requires. Studies have shown that a deficient 
amount of dietary folate can increase the homocysteine levels, which can be a dangerous 
precursor to neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

Jalapenos are an excellent source of the B-vitamin complex, such as folate or folic acid. 
Folate has shown to help in neural tube formation and red blood cell formation in prenatal 
babies. A deficiency of folic acid in pregnant women can lead to the birth of underweight 
infants and may also result in neural tube defects in newborns. One cup of jalapenos 
contains 11 percent of the daily recommended value of folate.
