Extra Virgin Siberian Pine Nut Oil - Now in India
Powerful Natural Gastrointestinal Healer, Metabolism Booster, Digestive Aid
For many centuries native Siberians have successfully used pine nut oil to heal gastrointestinal disorders, aid digestion and boost stamina
Extra virgin pine nut oil (EVPO) is a delicious, golden-colored oil cold-pressed from the small kernels (commonly called pine nuts), which are produced by certain species of pine trees around the world. In addition to being an exquisite gourmet cooking oil, it also has a history of many centuries of therapeutic use in Russian and Chinese traditional medicine.
The native people of Siberia – a remote region of Russia famous for its pristine forests, crystal-clear rivers and lakes, as well as remarkably vibrant health of its inhabitants - have always used pine nut oil as an effective, all-natural gastrointestinal remedy, metabolism enhancer, and digestive aid
Historically, in Siberia, where distances are great and food is scarce, especially during the long, cold Siberian winter, a handful of pine nuts or a tablespoon of pine nut oil taken with - or even instead of - a meal have provided a long-lasting feeling of “fullness”. In addition, pine nuts and their oil provided the natives with a rich array of essential vitamins, nutrients, and microelements such as vitamins E, B1, B2 and B3, beta-carotene (pro-vitamin A) and other carotenoids, essential amino acids, magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, and iodine.
This allowed the Siberians to have a full complement of nutrients required to go about their daily routines, which usually involved hunting, fishing, and trapping, without feeling hungry. These powerful health-promoting and nutritional benefits have earned the Siberian pine (the tree from which pine nuts were harvested) the name of “the Tsar of all trees” in Russia.
The traditional uses of extra virgin Siberian pine nut oil drew a lot of attention from Russian and Chinese scientists and researchers who conducted numerous studies to figure out the biochemical processes behind the health-promoting action of this unique oil.
Important components of Siberian Pine Nut Oil - Antioxidants, Pinolenic Acid
Pinolenic acid (a triple-unsaturated fatty acid which is a positional isomer of a more widely known gamma-linolenic acid [GLA]) is found exclusively in pine nut oil, and is not present in any other species of plants. This fatty acid is present in all 140 varieties of pine nuts (and their oil) in quantities ranging from 0.1 to more than 20 percent.
However, the richest known source of pinolenic acid is the oil pressed from the seeds of the Siberian pine (Pinus Sibirica). It was this oil, containing up to 27 per cent of pinolenic acid, that the native Siberians used as a nutrient-rich food and a healing remedy.
Scientists have also demonstrated that pinolenic acid favorably affects total blood lipids, reduces platelet aggregation, and lowers blood pressure, contributing to cardiovascular health.
