Hemp contains essential fatty acids omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9. Hemp has quantities of omega-6 and omega-3 in the 3:1 ratio that is considered optimal for human health. Although this ratio varies depending on individual health and lifestyle, a good guide is to try to increase omega-3, whilst decreasing omega-6. A lower ratio can help reduce the risk of a number of chronic health diseases. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce the likelihood of cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease and strokes. It is thought that omega-3 consumption may also be able to boost cognitive function. Hemp is rich in fibre, which makes up the majority of the carbohydrate content. Fibre helps to keep blood sugar levels stable, reduce cholesterol and aids healthy digestion.
