Pure hemp oil for optimal cardiovascular health

Want to know more about the benefits of pure hemp oil for optimal heart health? KANAPU Hemp Seed Oil contains high level of polyunsaturated fatty acids which are essentials in maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.

Cardiovascular diseases are a group of heart and blood vessels disorders which are associated to the build-up of fatty deposits inside the arteries (atherosclerosis), increased risk of blood clots, and the damage of arteries in organs. The main types of cardiovascular disease are the coronary heart disease, strokes, peripheral arterial disease (blockage in the arteries to the limbs), and aortic disease. Some of the risk factors for cardiovascular diseases are high blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol, diabetes, physical inactivity, family history and others. A healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet can lower the risk and manage cardiovascular diseases.

KANAPU Hemp Seed Oil contains mostly polyunsaturated fatty acids and has a low proportion of saturated fatty acids of the total fatty caid contents. According to American Heart Association, diets rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids can help reduce the bad cholesterol lowering the risk of heart disease and stroke. The low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol is referred as the “bad” cholesterol as a high level of LDL cholesterol can build up within the walls of blood vessels and narrow the passageway, potentially triggering heart attack or stroke. In contrast, the high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol is referred as the “good” cholesterol as HDL cholesterol picks up and carries the excess cholesterol in blood to liver. The liver then breaks down the cholesterol and remove it from the body as a waste product.

A study has shown that consuming 30 mL of pure hemp oil per day (~2 tablespoons) for 14 days decreased the total-to-HDL cholesterol ratio. Total-to-HDL cholesterol ratio is used to predict the risk for coronary heart disease. The lower the ratio, the lower the risk for coronary heart disease. In addition, there was a decrement in serum total triglyceride level which could potentially reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

KANAPU Hemp Oil is also an abundant source of Omegas 3 and 6 fatty acids, at the perfectly balanced 1:4 ratio. A diet with an omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids ratio of 1:4 has been associated with a 70 % decrease in total mortality rate from cardiovascular disease.
