It’s Monday again. The weekend always seems to come and go in a flash, and this one was no different, apart from one thing. Over the weekend I read a piece about Emu Oil. It was something I hadn’t heard of before but was amazed to learn that if you search for “Emu Oil Research” on Google, it returns over 1,000,000 results. So without further ado we present to you the benefits of this miracle oil.
It is highly moisturising, a natural skin softener and has rejuvenating properties (it has been shown to reduce the depth and length of fine lines and wrinkles). It is also non greasy and highly penetrating. In fact, Emu Oil has demonstrated to be the fastest and most penetrating oil into the skin, making it an excellent trans-dermal carrier for any other added moisturisers or therapeutic ingredients.
It is is natural and non-toxic, non-comedogenic (does not clog pores), hypo-allergenic (non-irritating) and gentle for all skin types.
Emu Oil is an effective anti-inflammatory. The potency of the anti-inflammatory effect from it is similar to ibuprofen without the negative side-effects frequently common with traditional prescription or corticosteroid based anti-inflammatory medications. It is an amazing thought that Emu Oil could replace ibuprofen!
It is is bacteriostatic and does not promote the growth of bacteria.
Emu Oil can provide you with the healing properties of Omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 essential fatty acids. Medical trials have shown that it can help prevent heart attacks and strokes by lowering blood pressure, lowering your triglyceride levels and decreasing arrhythmias (which can cause heart attacks). Another benefit of Omega 3 which has recently been discovered is that it may help to make you smarter, because it improves blood flow throughout your body (including the brain) thereby also helping with improving brain function.
Emu Oil naturally contains:
Vitamin E, a major antioxidant and healing agent;
Vitamin A, a known skin repairer and antioxidant;
Linoleic acid, which eases muscle aches and joint pain;
Oleic acid, a proven skin cell regenerator, anti-wrinkle agent;
Sapogens, proven skin softeners;
Terpines, known antiseptics.
The list of conditions and problems that this miracle oil has been proven to benefit is staggering, but includes acne, age spots, dry skin, eczema, joint pains, skin rashes and stiffness. The full list has over 50 conditions and problems.
Analysis of fatty acids in emu oil reveals that it contains approximately 70% unsaturated fatty acids. The major fatty acid found in it is oleic acid, which is mono-unsaturated and which comprises over 40% of the total fatty acid content. Emu oil also contains both of the two essential fatty acids (EFA’s) which are important to human health: 20% is linoleic, and 1 – 2 % is alpha-linolenic acid.
