Include hemp seed oil in your diet to improve overall health. Use hemp seed oil on skin and hair to moisturize damaged tissues. The oil has an appealing nutty taste which is great for salad dressings and sauces. Regenerative Nutrition recommends mixing hemp seed oil with barley grass powder and chemical-free water for an especially healthy tonic. As a word of caution, do not mix hemp seed oil with tap water, as the chlorine in tap water transforms healthy compounds into toxic chemicals. Keep hemp oil refrigerated for up to six months to prevent it from going rancid.

Some benefits of hemp seed oil include enhanced immune system functioning, inflammation reduction, improved mental clarity and well being and increased overall vitality. Regenerative Nutrition recommends a daily dose of up to 50 milliliters a day for an individual of average weight and build. Up to 150 mL can be taken for therapeutic purposes, but should not be taken at this dosage for more than seven days.
