A few facts:
Flaxseed oil contains the highest amount of omega-3 in comparison to omega-6, at a 5:1 ratio.
Pumpkin seed oil is packed with essential fatty acids and has been linked to prostate health.
Hemp oil is unique in that it has the ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids.Unfortunately, in New Zealand Hemp oil is difficult to get because it is not produced for human consumption. In many countries it is freely available so I still use the one available in New Zealand. If you'd like to know more feel free to contact me here.
