5 Benefits of Emu Oil and What Makes It Effective
By Emu Spirit | December 19, 2018 | Blog
Emu oil has a multitude of benefits on human health, and these benefits are mostly due to the high levels of essential fatty acids and vitamins contained in the oil. Accounting for approximately 70% of its composition, the therapeutic qualities of emu oil mainly stem from its unsaturated fatty acids; Omega 3, 6 & 9. Studies suggest that the combination of these 3 fatty acids bring about emu oil’s anti-inflammatory action.
So what exactly is Omega 3, 6 & 9?
- Oleic Acid — a monounsaturated, Omega-9 fatty acid. It’s a common fat in the human diet that’s been associated with decreased LDL cholesterol and possibly increased HDL cholesterol. In emu oil, the oleic acid helps transport the bioactive compounds into the skin, allowing the oil to absorb quickly when it’s applied topically.
- Linoleic Acid — a polyunsaturated, Omega-6 fatty acid. Linoleic acid helps boost skin health by reducing the appearance of sun spots or aging when it’s applied topically. Studies have shown that linoleic acid helps lighten ultraviolet-induced hyperpigmentation of the skin by inhibiting melanin production.
- Linolenic Acid — an Omega-3 fatty acid that helps reduce inflammation, and it’s commonly used to help prevent chronic diseases, such as heart disease and arthritis. When consumed, omega-3 fatty acids boost brain health and aid growth and development.
