The Smoothie Additive You’ve Been Missing!

If you’re looking for ways to make your smoothie healthy without sacrificing delicious taste, look to our Humming Hemp Oil! Our hemp oil is always cold-pressed, extra virgin and unrefined. Our products are shelf-stable, non-GMO, paleo, vegan and gluten-free which means you know you’re getting the highest quality available.

In the essential fatty acid world, what makes hemp oil powerful and unique is its Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio is perfectly balanced – 3:1. Ok, but why is that so important and why do I need to add Omega fatty acids to my smoothie? If you’ve read our previous blog post about hemp oil health benefits, you’ll know it’s densely packed with nutrients, but did you know that your brain contains more than 100 billion cells and omega fatty acids are the building blocks of those cells?!  Omega-3 fatty acids aid in brain health, by increasing the brain’s growth hormone. Fatty acids can only be obtained through diet, and they are essential to our health and well-being. And with the most balanced Omegas on earth, Humming Hemp Oil’s got you covered!

Hemp Oil nutritional benefits don’t just stop at essential fatty acids. It also provides an adequate supply of antioxidants (Vitamin E), carotene (precursor to Vitamin A), phytosterols, phospholipids and a number of minerals including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, potassium, phosphorus, along with modest amounts of iron and zinc. Hemp seed oil also provides a good source of chlorophyll. The daily recommended allowance of hemp seed oil is 14-28 ml (1 to 2 tablespoons). This allowance provides between 8 and 16 grams of Omega 6 (LA) and between 3 and 6 grams of Omega 3 (LNA).

So, what about the taste? Hemp oil is light and has a slightly nutty flavor meaning it won’t over-power the taste of your smoothie, but it will over-power your smoothie’s health benefits!  Hemp oil can support a healthy heart, help grow healthy and fabulous hair, and might help with inflammation from arthritis.

The industrial hemp that makes our Humming Hemp Oil is grown by American farmers in the heart of America, with love and a desire to bring Powerful Nutrition™ to everyBODY (and smoothie)!

If you’re ready to start your day by giving your brain the essential Omegas it needs, grab yourself a bottle of our hemp oil, make one of our delicious smoothie recipes from our blog! Just 1-2 tablespoons of hemp oil in your smoothie can give you the Omegas your body needs.

Caution: Highly unsaturated vegetable oils such as Hemp Seed Oil are denatured by heating above 150ºC (300ºF), which can result in the production of unhealthy trans-fatty acids and increased peroxide values. Use Hemp Seed Oil as a flavor-enhancer in many recipes. Do not use as a substitute for frying oils. Keep bottles tightly sealed after opening and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
