Anco Cold Pressed Hemp Seed Oil is 100% natural and contains no artificial colourants, flavourings or preservatives.
Completely safe for your dog, Hemp Seed Oil has all the benefits of the bioactive compounds and high levels of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals found in Hemp without the psychoactive compounds (THC).
Hemp Seed Oil therefore provides relaxation without intoxication and has been shown to ease pain and muscle tension, aid joint mobility and lower anxiety in dogs, amongst a number of other health benefits.
Hemp Seed Oil naturally has the perfect composition of Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids in the optimal ratio of 3:1. By cold pressing the Hemp Seed, the important Omega fatty acids are not broken down and their qualities affected. These essential fatty acids are important to your dog as they help to support a healthy immune system and heart, hydrate and soothe dry or itchy skin, maintain a glossy coat, ease joint and hip stiffness to aid mobility and enable optimal cognitive function.
In addition, the natural antioxidants in Hemp Seed Oil have neuroprotective qualities so can be said to give your dog a 'brain boost'. For natural weight control, Hemp Seed Oil is one of the few natural sources of gamma linoleic acid or GLA, which helps to satiate dogs so they feel fuller for longer (and are therefore less likely to overeat), increase energy (which helps with motivation to exercise) and boost metabolism(to help burn fat).
The herbal mix in the oil has added health benefits, from the Peppermint Leaves which support the digestive system, the Cumin Seeds which are a rich source of antioxidants, linked to a reduction in free radicals, the Fenugreek which supports the reduction of inflammation inside the body and improves digestion, the Liquorice Root which helps to maintain a healthy weight and is an immune system booster, the Turmeric which is a natural anti inflammatory and aids digestion, the Fennel which is high in natural antioxidants and supports the respiratory and digestive system, and the Chamomile Blossom which is soothing and calming, boosts the immune system and supports normal liver function.
