Top 10 Reasons You Should be Using Emu Oil
Emu oil, used for thousands of years to treat all kinds of skin problems by the Aborigine of Australia, comes to us from the ostrich like birds that are native to that continent. Although many people think this oil is only for topical use, all sorts of health benefits are missed by this belief. Emu oil does have exceptional skin penetration and can encourage amazing skin benefits that can reduce inflammation and muscle pain, because it is loaded with rich, fatty acids such as oleic, stearic, and linoleic acid. However, when this oil is taken internally, it can successfully treat arthritis, headaches, allergies, inflammation and heart disease. The oil is taken from the fat of this large flightless bird.
Taken internally, emu oil soothes inflammation within the body. One study done at the University of Massachusetts showed that consuming emu and olive oil was actually more effective at lowering cholesterol than many other foods, including coconut oil. In lab tests, hamsters were fed either 10 percent coconut oil or a mixture of refined olive and emu oil, combined with 0.05 percent cholesterol for a period of 8 weeks, The hamsters that were given emu and olive oil had reduced their aortic cholesterol concentrations, as well as notably lower plasma cholesterol, when compared to the hamsters that were given coconut oil.
Another study showed that when lab animals were fed emu oil, their chemotherapy-induced intestinal damage was greatly diminished. The acute inflammation of the intestines was greatly improved after consuming emu oil. The scientists who conducted this study concluded that emu oil is a valuable nutritional supplement for the treatment of intestinal disorders.
Although there are no scientific studies in these areas, there are multiple testimonials that show that taking emu oil internally can relieve the following:
- Gum Disease
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- High Blood Pressure
- Migraine Headaches
- Shin Splints
