Hemp seeds are high in an essential Omega-6 fatty acid called GAMMA LINOLENIC ACID (GLA). That’s important because there’re some really good reasons to boost the GLA in your dog’s diet.
Your dog has substances in his body called prostaglandins. These are like hormones and they circulate around the body, helping to smooth muscle contractions, control inflammation, regulate the body temperature and other vital functions. The GLA that’s abundant in hemp seed is a building block for prostaglandins. Researchers are looking at GLA supplementation today as an important component of proper hormone health and development.
