It’s January and if you’re anything like me you’ll be feeling a little blue. I’m trying to feed my body with nutrients in the hope that healthy food will translate into healthy-looking skin and a happy disposition.
One weapon in my arsenal of mood improvers is Good Oil. Loaded with essential fatty acids omega 3, 6 and 9, said to benefit circulation, the heart, joints and the immune system, as well as contributing towards general health, this oil can be swapped into your diet in place of (nutritionally inferior) olive oil.
Made from cold-pressed hemp seed, Good Oil is also a natural source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), said to increase cell resilience and moisten the fatty layer beneath the skin. This means dewy skin, strong nails and shiny, swingy hair! It’s not difficult to add the oil into your cooking and eating regime either – in fact, it’s a delicious pleasure! It can be used cold, added to salads and soups, or as a dip for crusty bread, or in cooking as you would a normal vegetable oil.
As it takes skin cells 28 days to renew, I’m not feeling the full benefit just yet, but knowing I’m making a small effort towards being healthy in 2009 is enough to put a smile on my face.
