Argan Oil’s Sacred Compounds

 

Apart from all he good that this oil alone does to the humans, another intriguing quality of it is that it has innumerable compounds which together make such a blend that works as magic for quite a lot many problems.

Ferulic Acid is the most abundant phenolic compound found in Argan Oil. This antioxidant helps prevent damage caused by ultraviolet light. Exposure to ultraviolet light actually increases the antioxidant potency of ferulic acid. It is often added as an ingredient of anti-aging supplements. Studies have shown that ferulic acid can decrease blood glucose levels and can be of help to diabetes patients.

It seems to protect against many types of caner, bone degeneration and menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes. Like many other antioxidants, ferulic acid reduces the level of cholesterol and triglyceride, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease.

Sterols (Phytosterols) are a class of lipid-like compounds that helps to prevent skin aging by improving skin metabolism and reducing inflammation. They promote excellent moisture retention and penetrate quickly. They are vital to the structural integrity of the cell membrane. They work in harmony with human skin because the chemical structure of plant sterols and human sterols is very similar. In the skin, human sterols are the main component of its outermost layer and play a fundamental role in aiding and maintaining optimal skin barrier function.

Two of the families of sterols found in Argan oil, namely -

  • Schottenol
  • Spinasterol

are known for their anticancer properties and are rarely found in vegetable oils. Additionally, sterols are known to block cholesterol absorption sites in the human intestine thus helping to reduce the overall amount absorbed in the body.

Vitamin E (Tocopherol) is a fat-soluble vitamin. It is a powerful antioxidant and excellent free-radical scavenger. Vitamin E protects essential fatty acids and vitamin A levels in the body. It accumulates in the epidermis and forms a barrier against moisture evaporation from the skin. Vitamin E prevents cellular aging due to oxidation, aids in bringing nourishment to cells, and decreases inflammation and strengthens capillary walls.

It has been shown to significantly help in the reduction of scarring from wounds and the appearance of stretch marks. Vitamin E’s antioxidant properties help to prevent oxidation of LDL cholesterol, the so-called “bad cholesterol”. This may lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. Research has suggested a link between vitamin E and the prevention of certain cancers and degenerative diseases.

Free Notes On Argan Oil

 

Argan oil is an oil extracted from the seeds of the argan tree, which is native to Southwestern Morocco. There are a number of uses for argan oil as well as for other products from the argan tree, and demand is often high for genuine argan products.

Since argan oil is difficult to extract, it tends to be very expensive, and this cost is passed on in products which contain argan oil, even in trace amounts. Depending on what you want to use the oil for, you may be able to find it in a health food store or a cosmetic shop; consumers can also order argan oil from cooperatives in Morocco.

To extract argan oil, people must remove an outer layer of pulpy flesh from a hard seed which must be cracked open to get at the seeds inside. The flesh does not smell very appealing, and it is also not very tasty; it is typically used as mulch or animal feed. The cracked shells are burned as a source of -

  • Fuel
  • Wood from downed argan trees
  • Make furnishings

Moroccans make very efficient use of this ancient tree.

Traditionally, women have produced argan oil, first toasting the seeds to release a rich, nutty flavor and then grinding them by hand to extract the oil. The resulting paste can be pressed to get as much oil as possible, and then fed to animals as a nutritious dietary supplement. The dark oil has a rich flavor which appears in some Moroccan foods, classically amlou, a dip for bread, and less toasted oil is used for cosmetics. It is also possible to recover seeds from the feces of goats, as the digestive process softens the hard shells, but these seeds tend to have a pungent odor which makes them less desirable.

This oil is naturally high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, making it an excellent dietary supplement. It is also very good for the skin; vitamin E can help smooth cracked hands, knees, and elbows while nourishing the skin, and essential fatty acids can promote healthy skin as well. These benefits have made argan oil popular in cosmetics for centuries in Morocco and beyond, and small vials of the costly oil are often on offer at high-end cosmetic stores.

Be Argan Oil’s Lover…It’ll Keep Your Heart Safe

 

I don’t know about anyone else…but in my own family….more than half of the people died of a heart attack…

That’s how I am averse to anything that contributes to cholesterol and clogs the arteries…I wanted to conquer the disease myself (Not that I am a heart patient but because…I want to prevent it from occurring at all)

Different people have different food passions…and they don’t realize that the exotic and expensive food they are so much in love with is the number one cause to trigger a heart attack…So why not love something that loves us back (Like they say in some commercial advertisment)…

The most loyal lover you can find in Argan oil…Trust me on this…

I’ll tell you a little about it…Argan oil is basically extracted from the nuts of the argan tree…which is found only in the southwestern parts of Morocco…Therefore…the oil is unknown to most of the people…A relict species from the Tertiary age…the tree is extremely well adapted to drought and other environmentally difficult conditions of the place…The oil…extracted from the tree  is like amazingly rich in essential fatty acids….especially the linoleic acid ( I am sure you mustn’t have heard of it…relax…what am ‘I’ here for! )…the harbinger of vitamin E….it is quiet beneficial for the human body and skin….

Also…with the moisturizing…strong antioxidant and skin anti-aging properties adds to the nutritive…medicinal and cosmetic value of the oil…There have been many researches on the benefits of argan oil…

One of the major advantages of argan oil is that it is extremely helpful in correcting the deficiencies that inevitably occur with age…which results in dehydration and loss of skin elasticity….This article will provide you with detailed information on the health benefits of argan oil…

Argan Oil contains fatty acids classified in three groups you know-

  • Saturated
  • Mono unsaturated
  • Polyunsaturated

Now some more enlightenment…Mono unsaturated fatty acids reduce blood levels of LDLs (the bad cholesterol) without affecting HDLs (good cholesterol as they say) as long as they are used as replacement of saturated fatty acids….

Polyunsaturated fatty acids reduce blood levels of LDLs but HDLs too…However they must be part of our diet since they provide the essential fatty acids…linoleic acid and alpha linolenic acid….

Argan oil is rich in linoleic acid which increases the production of prostaglandins 1 and thus may be of beneficial for people with rheumatologic conditions and cardio vascular problems…It is active in the maintenance and repair of the membrane that encloses the cells….

Argan Oil’s high oleic acid content makes this oil particularly interesting in the regulation of blood cholesterol….It is the magical component of Argan oil….It is reported that some studies are being done and it seems that 2 Tbsp per day of this oil during a month could considerably lower cholesterol levels….How about you too try it?

Other Cholesterol reducing factors may include saponins which can also lower blood cholesterol thereby reducing heart disease….
