If you’ve only been applying emu oil topically on your skin, you’re missing out on a wealth of internal health benefits. Research has found the powerful anti-inflammatory action of pure emu oil can help ease pain and inflammation associated with digestive diseases. Taken internally, pure emu oil delivers Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids and antioxidants to improve your wellbeing from the inside out.
Reduce gastrointestinal conditions
If you are suffering from digestive diseases, the Omega 3 fatty acids found in emu oil has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Taken internally, emu oil may sooth inflammation-related gut conditions such as Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease and stomach ulcers.
Emu oil is a fantastic source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which may help to balance cholesterol levels. Similar to olive oil, emu oil may help to lower the ‘bad’ cholesterol while maintaining levels of ‘good’ cholesterol.
Ease muscle aches and joint pains
If you are suffering from muscle aches and arthritic pain, the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of emu oil may help to relieve the pain in your joints and muscles. Taking emu oil internally may be more efficient in treating the pain, healing your body from within.
Boost general health and wellbeing
Omega 3 has been linked to heart health and brain function. Our bodies don’t produce Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, so they need to be obtained from the food we consume. Emu oil may be a good way to ensure you’re getting enough intake of nutrients like Vitamin A, D, E, F and K2. It can also be a good alternative option to consuming fish oil supplements – so you can avoid the fishy odour!
How to take emu oil capsules
Supplementing your diet with emu oil capsules is a great way to deliver the anti-inflammatory goodness directly to your digestive system. Rather than treating just the symptoms, it can help to prevent inflammation in the body (therefore treating the cause of them problem). Start with 4 – 6 capsules 3 times a day for the first 8 – 12 weeks, then reducing intake to 1 – 4 capsules a day to suit your individual requirements.
