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….
