Why use Hemp Seed Oil for Your Pet?
Hemp Seed Oil is a great nutritional addition to maintain your dog or cat’s health. Unlike CBD which contains THC and cannabinoids, Hemp Seed Oil is pure and cold pressed straight from the hemp plant seeds, meaning it has no psychoactive ingredients with no additives or harmful manufacturing processes. As a result, the oil is a pure, all natural, nutrient dense substance fit for your pet’s consumption.
Why give Hemp Seed Oil to Pets?
Hemp has been used for centuries for several reasons from medicinal purposes to clothing and textiles. The reason it was used all those years ago and continues to this day is because it has amazing health benefits, is great for the environment and is all natural! In today’s society where everything is mass produced and manufactured, it is a comfort to know you are giving your pet's diet the natural boost it needs.
Hemp seeds are full of beneficial and nutrient dense properties that support your pet’s health and wellness. From the outside you will see a difference in their temperament, skin and coat health but on the inside amazing things are happening too!
Ingredients and the Benefits for your Pet
Hemp Seed Oil is rich in two essential fatty acids, Alpha-Linolenic acid (Omega-3) and Linoleic acid (Omega-6), the fatty acids you want in your diet, with a ratio of 3:1 of Omega 3 and Omega 6. Being polyunsaturated fats, these cannot be produced naturally by our body and need to be included in our diet. This is also true for our pets! Hemp seed oil also contains Omega 9, a monounsaturated fat. Studies have found Omega acids can improve cardiovascular health by increasing good cholesterol and reducing bad cholesterol within the blood, aiding in the prevention of plaque build-up in the arteries.
Gamma Linolenic Acid or GLA is a specific type of fatty acid found within Omega 6. It has anti-inflammatory properties and nourishes cells, boosting the immune system, making it essential for a healthy functioning body. It helps with digestion and weight management by supporting the metabolism. Besides from cardiovascular health, the omega acids help aid your pet’s health in other ways. Your dog or cat will enjoy healthy looking skin and shiny coats, a boost to their immune system and pain relief from anti-inflammatory properties supporting ageing hips and joints. The omega fatty acids also help with brain function and development with some studies suggesting it can help with memory and cognitive impairment.
Hemp Seed Oil can be used to help promote relaxation and calm restless, irritable pets. As it has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body, it can help with feelings of tension and create a calming effect helping with feelings of anxiety. It is also known to give a better, more restful sleep.
Hemp Seed Oil is the only plant-based protein source to contain all 20 amino acids. This includes 9 essential amino acids our pets cannot produce therefore making it an amazing addition to their diet. Not only that, it also contains antioxidants, vitamins and minerals including chlorophyll, which is good for digestion and gut health, boosting your pets overall health.
When to give Hemp Seed Oil to your Pet
Whether it is taken with food or directly into your pet’s mouth, Hemp Seed Oil is best taken as a daily diet supplement over time and not treated like a quick fix. The dosage amount varies with the size and weight of your pet. Always check the recommended dosage amount suitable for your pet. It is recommended to check with your vet about your pet’s health. Overall Hemp Seed Oil promotes a happier and healthier life for your pets, and they will thank you for the health benefits they feel from taking it.
