Essential Fatty Acids Are Vital for Muscle Growth and Fat Loss

What are Essential Fatty acids and are they really essential? Why bodybuilders need EFAs to maximize muscle and assist with fat loss.
FitBodsYou are selling your results short by not giving your body all the nutrients it needs. I am talking specifically about the nutrients that are “essential” to the body. Essential nutrients are nutrients that the body cannot make and therefore must be obtained through the diet. Concerning the macronutrients, there are two groups of essential nutrients, Essential Amino Acids (EAAs) And Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs).
Getting adequate protein in your diet each and every day is heavily stressed in the fitness community, but what is not stressed is getting in adequate Essential Fatty Acids each day. Why would you focus on only getting one of the two essential nutrients? Both EAAs (in the form of protein) and EFAs MUST be obtained from your diet. To get the best results possible you must focus on getting enough of both protein and essential fats.
There are two fatty acids that are essential to the body, the Omega-3 Fatty Acid Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) and the Omega-6 Fatty Acid Linoleic Acid (LA). ALA and LA are readily available in food, but to obtain their full benefits they must be converted into their long-chain metabolites, ALA to Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and LA to Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).  Getting adequate healthy fats in your diet is the first step to getting these EFAs.
The conversion of ALA to EPA and DHA as well as the conversion of LA to GLA is limited, so even if you get some ALA and LA in your diet you may not be getting enough EPA, DHA, or GLA. Adding fat sources that contain EPA and DHA and GLA (think Hemp Seed Oil) is the second step and ideal to ensure you get these essential fatty acid metabolites.
If you are deficient in EAAs, protein synthesis cannot proceed at its full rate due to lacking the needed building blocks (Amino Acids) to build muscle tissue. The same holds true for the EFAs. Being deficient in EFAs and their metabolites will decrease protein synthesis and muscle repair due to lacking the needed materials. An EFA deficiency may also cause your body to try to “hold on to” your body fat because it senses it does not have all the materials/nutrients it needs. So if you do not have enough EFAs then you are not gaining muscle and progressing at the rate you could and your fat loss can become impeded.
EPA and DHA have been shown:

  • Decrease protein breakdown
  • Decrease body fat mass
  • Increase amino acid uptake
  • Improve cardiovascular health
  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Increase insulin sensitivity
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Improve joint health
  • Necessary for proper functioning of the brain
  • Repair damaged cell membranes
  • Provide building blocks for Eicosanoids (signaling molecules) and growth factors
  • Increase cell membrane permeability (ability to transport nutrients in and out of cells)

GLA has been shown to:

  • Decrease fat regain after a diet
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Improve nerve functioning
  • Increase calcium absorption leading to stronger bones
  • Improve skin health
  • Decrease joint pain and swelling
  • Improve blood pressure
  • Assist in weight management
  • Decreases PMS (A GLA deficiency may be responsible for some PMS symptoms)
  • Boosts immune system

We see that EPA, DHA and GLA are vital for muscle growth and fat loss. To get in sufficient EFAs – and in a balanced 3:1 ratio, take Hemp Seed Oil – either in raw Oil or Capsules.

EFAs in Balance

stoneAge_1462157cHemp’s ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 Fatty Acids is in a 4:1 ratio, which mirrors the primitive diet 
This ratio of fatty acids has been shown to prevent and even reverse Alzheimers disease in animal models and humans (Yehuda et al, Int J Neurosci, vol 3, 141-9, 1996).
The fatty acid Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) is especially beneficial for the elderly who become essential fatty acid deficient as they age. Polyunsaturated fats have been shown to be beneficial for the prevention of heart disease, especially Omega 3 fatty acids.
Polyunsaturated fats are good, offering the most double bonds and remain fluid at the lowest temperatures, thereby permitting proper protein (enzyme ) functions necessary for health.

  • 4.       MCTs (medium chain triglycerides)

MCTs will increase your metabolism, your body is more likely to use MCTs for energy instead of storing it as fat and MCTs help curb your appetite and because of these facts .. farmers will not feed their animals foods high in MCTs like coconut oil because it will keep their animals very lean and…

  • A group of 31 overweight people lost an average of 7 lbs. during a 16 week study when they included MCT oil in their muffins and in another 12 week study .. 2 groups of people were put on almost the same exact diet but the only difference was .. one group got it’s fat mainly from regular dietary fat while the other group got it’s fat only from MCTs and .. the group taking MCTs lost 8½ lbs. (2½ lbs. more than the other group) and the combined results of many studies on MCTs all conclude that you can lose up to 12-to-36 pounds a year just by replacing the regular fat in your diet with MCTs and Coconut Oil & Palm Oil are all good sources of MCTs or you can use a MCT supplement

How to include these fats in your diet to lose weight faster?
Remember: Fats must only be 10 to 30% of your diet if you’re trying to lose weight or build muscle and you want to make sure that most of or ALL the fats you eat are Omega-3, CLA, Omega-6 and/or MCT fats if you want to burn fat faster and you can easily get most of those fats by eating more lean proteins like fish, organic beef, nuts & beans but if you find you can’t get enough of these healthy fats in your diet you can take Omega-3, CLA, Omega-6 and/or MCT supplements.
Now for the most amazing news .. Hemp contains Omega 3, Omega 6 – CLA & GLA as well as medium chain triglycerides.
So, by incorporating Hemp into your diet – and here I mean healthy, balanced diet – you will lose weight, naturally, easily!

Edestin, a globulin protein found only in Hemp Seeds…increases DNA repair!

hemp-protein-2Almost two-thirds of hemp protein is made up of Edestin, a globulin protein found only in hemp seeds. This makes hemp the superior source for this protein in the plant kingdom. Edestin is a type of plant protein that is similar to protein found in the human body and thus is perfectly suited to aid in meeting the body’s cellular needs such as DNA repair. Since much of hemp’s protein resembles that found in human blood, hemp protein is very easily digested and assimilated. In addition, another one-third of hemp’s protein is albumin, another high quality globulin protein also found in egg whites.
With a protein structure of 66% Edestin and 33% Albumin, hemp seeds contain all 8 Essential Amino Acids plus 2 conditionally Essential Amino Acids. In addition to its surprising protein profile, it also contains the perfect ratio of Omega Fatty Acids researchers recommend for good health
Why Are Amino Acids Important?hempseeds
A human being needs 21 Amino Acids to survive:  Eight are essential and must be obtained from food; two are conditionally essential and can be synthesized if all the eight essential amino acids are consumed. No other plant or animal source, aside from Hemp, contains the first ten amino acids necessary for health. Nor do any of them contain the balanced fatty acid ratio essential for life.
Hemp seeds are not unique among plant seeds in having all the essential Amino Acids. However, they are unique in that they have them in the correct ratio and they are in the form of Globulin Edestin at 65% of the protein content. The other 35% of the protein content is Albumin.
The globulins contained in hemp seeds are one of the seven classes of 100% pure Amino Acids. Globulins make up the portion of seed between the embryo and the seed coat and they are a fraction of all animal and human blood. Edestin globulin comes from seed;  globulin is in blood plasma. Globulin and Albumin are classified as globular proteins. All the enzymes, antibodies, many hormones, hemoglobin and fibrogin are made from globular proteins.
Albumin, Globulin and Fibrogin make up the fluid part of blood plasma. The protein portion of the blood answers the call of tissues in need by providing nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
When purchasing a hemp protein powder you should be looking for a brand that supplies at least 50% protein by weight, supplying 15 grams of protein per 30 gram serving.

A need for EFA Balance

Hemp Seed Oil is considered to be the best nutritional oil for health because it’s Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) profile is closest to that required by the human body.   are termed as such because the body cannot manufacture them. Therefore, they must continually be replenished in the diet. EFAs are not stored or used for energy as are other fats. Instead, they are used as raw materials (building blocks) for cell structure and as precursors for the synthesis of many of the body’s vital biochemicals, including hormones – increases testosterone and prostaglandins ideal for boosting building growth of lean body mass both in men and women. Increases valuable insulin sensitivity – this simply put, increased sensitivity promotes a much greater anabolic response to insulin and increases your fat-burning ability immensely, while insulin resistance leads to elevated fat storage, reduced hypertrophy and increased susceptibility to diseases such as diabetes. In fact studies show Omega 3s increase insulin sensitivity drastically, while its counterpart Omega 6s in higher dosage lead to insulin resistance so key to keep both at balance levels to prevent an imbalance of conversions of the fats, hence the reason why Hemp Seed’s EFA profile is one of the best sources.
 
What are Prostaglandins?
Prostaglandins regulate cellular functions such as communication, cholesterol production and blood platelet aggregation. Since different prostaglandins often have opposite effects, they are needed by the body in a delicate balance. This is obtained from a balanced intake of the two essential Fatty Acids (Omega-6 and Omega-3). For instance, the prostaglandins that key up the body’s response to stress are all made by Omega-6 fatty acids while the ones that gear down the body’s response to stress are nearly all made by Omega-3 fatty acids. Not surprisingly, stress-related diseases tend to respond to Omega-3 supplementation.
Hemp Seed’s EFAs are precursors to the prostaglandin series (PGE 1, 2 and 3). PGE1 inhibits the production of cholesterol and dilates blood vessels and prevents the blood clotting of platelets in arteries. A study reported in 1992 indicated that a diet of Hemp Seed causes the serum levels of total cholesterol to drop dramatically. Blood pressure also decreases after several weeks of eating Hemp Seeds, apparently due to the steady supply of EFAs.
By weight, Hemp Seed is 30-35% oil, of which 80% consists of polyunsaturated EFAs, specifically the two most important ones – Linoleic Acid (LA – Omega-6 at 60%) and Linolenic Acid (LNA or ALA – Omega-3 at 20%). These are the parent compounds which build longer-chain fatty acids. LNA then converts to DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) – two of the most critically needed forms of EFA and LA converts to AA (Arachidonic Acid), which has opposite effects of those from DHA. An excess of AA – the result of too much Omega-6 – ultimately leads to such health problems as inflammation and more importantly, increases blood clotting, which can cause heart attack, stroke, or embolism. In the last 40 years, the Western diet has become loaded with excess Omega-6 from corn and soybean oil, margarine and similar processed fats. At the same time, Westerners eat 500 mg of Omega-3 per day, much less than they need. Consequently, instead of the 3:1 ratio they should be getting, most people consuming the western-type diet, end up with a ratio of 50:1.
Other fatty acids in Hemp Seed Oil include:  Palmitoleic Acid, Heptadecanoic Acid, Arachiditic Acid, Eicosenoic Acid, Behenic Acid, Erucic Acid, Lignoceric Acid and Nervonic Acid; but it also contains several higher fatty acids. It is one of the only food oils to contain the direct metabolites of LA and LNA. Most notable are GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid from LA) and SDA (Stearidonic Acid from LNA), which serve as intermediaries in the formation of longer-chain fatty acids and vital hormone-like prostaglandins in the body. Because of this, Hemp Seed Oil is able to circumvent the impaired EFA metabolism and physical compromise that can result from genetic factors, intake of other fats, aging and lifestyle patterns.
Symptoms of an LNA (Omega-3) deficiency include: dry skin, growth retardation, weakness, impaired learning ability, poor motor coordination, behavioural changes, impaired vision, high blood pressure, sticky platelets, edema, mental deterioration, low metabolic rate and immune dysfunction.
Although LA (Omega-6) is present in our bodies in much greater quantities and because the western diet has an over-abundance, deficiencies are rare but can happen. Symptoms of an LA deficiency include: skin eruptions (acne and eczema-like), loss of hair, poor blood circulation, behavioral disturbances, liver and kidney degeneration, gallbladder problems, prostatitis, muscle tremors, abnormal water loss through the skin (sweating profusely) and susceptibility to infections.
These deficiency symptoms are all reversible with adequate intakes of EFAs from Hemp Seed Oil. But if ignored for a long time, health problems can develop into more serious degenerative conditions, paired wound healing, male sterility, miscarriage, arthritis, cardiovascular disease and growth retardation.
 
Low Fat Diets:
Reductions of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) in ultra-low fat and fat-free diets actually cause people to feel hungrier than they did before going on such a diet. It can also begin the process of dangerous EFA deficiency which causes people to binge on high-calorie foods to compensate for feeling unsatisfied.
The body absolutely requires fat in the diet in order to process such fat-soluble nutrients as vitamins A, D, E and K as well as phytochemicals. Fat substitutes, slide through the digestive system intact – which most people think is advantageous. But, fat substitutes compound a problem by not only being unable to absorb these nutrients into the body, but also they carry them directly into the feces for elimination.
Fat-free diets have been correlated with violent, short tempers in human and animal studies. Such diets can also cause high cholesterol levels because the body produces excess cholesterol in an attempt to make up for the lack of EFAs.
Hemp Seed Oil, therefore, may be thought of as a “diet” oil, because it contributes fewer calories than most other oils or fats and because it is so rich in EFAs, vital for cell metabolism. Experts say getting more than 12-15% of calories from EFAs will actually aid in burning off excess fat and thereby contributing to weight loss & insulin management.
 
Suggested Hemp Seed Oil Dosage
One tablespoon of Hemp Seed Oil of shelled (hulled) Hemp Seed supplies roughly 6.6 grams of Omega-6 and 2.2 grams of Omega-3 – just the amounts needed for a 2 000-calorie diet. This is a suitable amount even for vegetarians and takes into account the conversion ratio of 1% ALA to DHA, the currently accepted conversion rate for plant sources of Omega-3.
Hemp Seed Oil is best stored in the fridge or best in a freezer. It will stay fluid and does not need to be defrosted. One to 3 tablespoons is the suggested daily intake for adults; athletes up to 3 tbsp; children can take half that amount  and breast-fed babies obtain its benefits through the mother’s milk

Hemp & GLA – Good Fat for Weight Loss

More than 66% of Westerners are overweight, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  While a sedentary lifestyle and poor dietary choices can contribute to Westerners’ expanding waistlines, there may be more to the story.
Research has found that a deficiency in the Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acid, Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA), can actually inhibit healthy weight loss and weight control. In fact, recent studies suggest that obesity is linked with low levels of GLA.

GLA assists in weight loss by significantly increasing metabolism and encouraging stored fat to effectively be used for energy. GLA activates brown adipose tissue (BAT), which is an active tissue that burns calories for heat.  When BAT is actively functioning, it acts as a powerful mechanism for weight loss and weight control.  Studies report that BAT is less active in people who are overweight.

In addition, GLA also activates the metabolic process through its role in providing the nutrients necessary to control the sodium potassium pump in each cell of the body. The sodium potassium pump is essential for cellular homeostasis and when it’s functioning properly, it can use up to 20-50% of daily caloric energy. Thus, if the pump is not working effectively, the body will store this unused energy as fat.

As important as GLA is for an effective weight management, the challenge is that it only occurs in a very small number of foods in nature. As its name implies, it’s an essential fatty acid, meaning that it must be obtained from the diet.
I recommend Hemp as the best source of GLA due to it’s easy to assimilate and naturally balanced profile of essential fatty acids.

Women – Healthy Hormone Balance with Hemp

Women can experience hormonal imbalances at any age, yet symptoms can be the most pronounced during the late twenties to forties.  In addition, many women experience these symptoms each month during the pre-menstrual stage of the menstrual cycle.
In each case, symptoms of a hormonal imbalance can range from any of the following:
Allergies, Anxiety, Brain Fog, Diminished Sex Drive, Depression, Dizziness, Endometriosis, Facial Hair Growth, Fatigue, Fibrocystic Breasts, Hair Loss, Headaches, Low Sex Drive, Osteoporosis, PMS, Skin Problems, Urinary Tract Infections And Incontinence, Uterine Fibroids, Weight Gain, Water Retention And Bloating and Skin Wrinkles.
Research has found that hormonal imbalances are associated with deficiencies in Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s), including Omega-3 and Omega-6.  What’s more is that 80% of Westerners are deficient in EFA’s.  Studies have found that women who experience symptoms of hormone imbalance are lacking in the Omega-6 – Gamma-linolenic Acid (GLA).  It is difficult to get GLA from foods, as it only occurs naturally in a small amount of foods.  Under normal circumstances, the body can convert the Omega 6, Linoleic Acid to GLA, yet it’s been discovered that many women who have hormonal imbalances are not able to make the conversion effectively.
By adding Hemp to the diet, many of these symptoms and deficiencies can be alleviated.  Hemp contains the perfect balance of EFA’s and is one of the only plants to contain GL,A so the body does not have to rely on converting it.
Adding (1-2) Tablespoons of Hemp See Oil, or (3-5) Tablespoons of Hulled Hemp Seed a day, is a delicious, easy way to assist in achieving natural hormone balance and vibrant, health.
