Hemp oil contains gamma-linolenic acid, which is converted to the protective hormone prostaglandin PGE1 that regulates hormonal balance. This is incredibly important for women who menstruate or are in menopause. You can use our Beezy Beez hemp oil to get your hormones in check: Try adding a few drops into your smoothies, or using it in your breakfast meals.
