2. Rich in GLA

Hemp seeds contain several types of fatty acids, but the most important one is GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), which helps regulate hormone levels in the body by supporting prostaglandin production. The proper amount of GLA in your diet can reduce symptoms associated with diabetic neuropathy, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, ADHD, some forms of cancer, high blood pressure, acne, and eczema. Though the omega-6 fatty acids in GLA can be harmful in large amounts, moderate consumption is actually very beneficial to our bodies.
