The very small and tasty amaranthus seed is a rich source of essential amino acids, proteins and vitamins. Specifically, it is a source of vitamin E - an important antioxidant - and mineral salts like calcium, phosphorus and potassium. These seeds also contain large quantities of squalene, a hydrocarbon naturally present in our system and a fundamental constituent of the sebum that protects our skin.
The multiple benefits of Hemp Seed Oil stem from the presence of nutrients that are very important for our health, including α-linolenic acid (Omega 3) – an essential fatty acid that can only be obtained through the diet – and linoleic acid (Omega 6). The ratio of these two omega fatty acids is balanced (3:1), as recommended by the most advanced nutritional theories.
