Read on to discover how GLA has been shown to improve the pain and neuropathy symptoms in diabetic patients.

Diabetic neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes which involves nerve damage, often characterised by numbness and pain in the legs, feet and hands of diabetic patients. According to the Mayo clinic, a non-profit American academic medical centre, to help managing diabetic neuropathy, it is recommended to control blood sugar either through medication, healthy diet and lifestyle, and/or physical activity, as well as maintain healthy feet.

KANAPU Hemp Seed Flakes and KANAPU Hemp Seed Oil contain gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which can be incorporated into your daily diet, supporting the neuropathy conditions. GLA is an essential component of structural phospholipids in neuronal cell membrane, which is vital for the maintenance of normal nerve membrane structure and functions.

Several studies have shown positive effects of GLA on the neuropathy conditions in diabetic patients. For instance, consuming 0.32 g of GLA per day for 12 weeks has been reported to decrease the pain intensity in neuropathy diabetic patients. This finding is supported by the outcomes of another clinical trial, where it was demonstrated that consuming 0.36 g of GLA per day for 6 months improves the neuropathy symptom score, motor and sensory nerve conduction, and thermal threshold in patients with distal diabetic polyneuropathy.

Consuming 2 teaspoons of KANAPU hemp seed oil (~10 g) or 2 tablespoons of KANAPU hemp seed flakes (~30 g) daily provides around 0.4 g of GLA to support diabetic neuropathy conditions.
