A harmonious balance of natural fatty acid nutrition
Delivers an energizing boost for mind and body
Made with omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9
Getting the right amounts of the right fats has always been one of the trickier aspects of maintaining a healthy nutritional regimen. We hear a lot about the importance of omega-3 fatty acids, like those found in fish oil, because of their documented benefits for cardiovascular health and central nervous system function. But omega-3s are only part of the essential fatty acid equation. The truth is we need a balanced intake of various fats—including omega-3, omega-6, omega-9 and even the much-maligned saturated fats—for optimal mental and physical well-being. And that’s just what our new Swanson EFAs Coco Hemp softgels deliver with a 50-50 blend of organically grown hemp seed and coconut oils.
Hemp seed oil is lauded by many nutritionists as “nature’s most perfectly balanced oil” due to its roughly 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3, which is widely believed to be the optimal balance for human nutrition. It also has smaller amounts of gamma linolenic acid (GLA), a polyunsaturated fatty acid also found in borage oil and evening primrose oil. In addition to its fatty acid content, hemp seed oil also has significant amounts of natural antioxidants and phytosterols as well as valuable trace minerals and phospholipids. This uniquely diverse combination of nutrients sets hemp seed oil apart from all other seed oils.
As one might expect, the diverse array of nutrients found in hemp seed oil can deliver a wide range of benefits throughout the body. Alpha linolenic acid (ALA), like other omega-3 fatty acids, provides vital nourishment for the brain and central nervous system, which makes it valuable for supporting memory and mental sharpness as well as for maintaining emotional well-being. GLA is well known for the hormonal support it provides which can be especially helpful for women during the midlife menopausal transition. A balanced intake of omega-3s and omega-6s also helps maintain healthy skin and joint function.
For an all-natural energy boost, our Coco Hemp softgels feature 500 mg of organically grown coconut oil. In recent years, coconut oil has emerged as a favorite among athletes and fitness enthusiasts as a source of quick energy to fuel physical performance and is now gaining recognition as a valuable brain nutrient as well. That’s because coconut oil features medium chain triglycerides (MCT), which are converted directly into energy to quickly fuel the brain and body. Research indicates that MCT metabolism results in the production of ketone bodies, natural compounds that fuel neurons to support healthy brain and central nervous system function.
Make Coco Hemp softgels part of your daily health regimen, and give your mind and body the benefits of two of nature’s greatest nutritional treasures.
Q: My softgels look cloudy or clumpy. Is something wrong with them?
A: The melting point of coconut oil is around 72-74° F. On a cool day, some of the fatty acids present in the coconut oil will begin solidifying, going from clear to cloudy or clumpy. As the temperature drops, eventually the softgels will become totally opaque. If you hold the softgels in the closed palm of your hand for a few minutes, you will see them becoming clear as you exceed the melting point of the oil.
