Hemp Seed Oil for Pets. Just another Fad?
Fish Oils, Flax seed oils etc.... There certainly have been a roller coaster of fad supplements for pets over the years, but Hemp Seed Oil has the potential to last. Here’s why.
Hemp Seed contains GLA`s, (Gamma- Linoleic Acid) a unique omega-6 fatty acid that possesses strong anti-inflammatory abilities. Omega 6`s overall are viewed as unhealthy but the GLA is the exception to the rule & essential in their diet.
- It is a key Anti-Inflammatory
- It regulates Hormones
- It supports healthy Skin & Coat
As with anything, balance is important & the body needs more than omega-3s alone. Hemp Seed Oil Contain a more balanced Omega 3 & 6 ratio. When your dog’s omega-6 and omega-3 fats aren’t balanced, the body produces too much AA and it leads to inflammation.
