Benefits of Ingesting Emu Oil
Emu Oil offers all of the benefits of fish and krill oils with none of the problems like fish burps, ocean contaminants and depleted fish populations. Emu oil is comprised of approximately 70% unsaturated fatty acids. This composition is consistent with current recommendations for a "heart healthy" diet.
Heart and Bone Health
Beyond the Omega Fatty Acids, Emu Oil contains a number of active bio-nutrients such as Vitamin K2. Emu oil has recently been discovered to contain nearly as much of the elusive form of vitamin K2, MK-4, per 100 grams as goose liver pate (the 2nd highest source known, Natto - Japanese fermented soybeans is the first). Studies have shown that vitamin K2 (MK-4) may help in fighting against cancer and Alzheimer's disease. Some other important associated benefits may include maintenance of bone density, prevention of osteoporosis and cardiovascular diseases and even a reduction in wrinkles. A recent U.S. study demonstrated that there is a strong inverse relationship between heart attack mortality and vitamin K2 (MK-4 to MK-10). A similar study was carried out in the Netherlands on about five thousand males. The study results showed that men with the highest consumption of K2 had a tremendously lower heart attach mortality (about 51%) and a lower risk of death (26%) from all causes as compared to control group which was consuming the least amount of K2.
Pain and Inflammation
Emu oil gel caps are considered to be the best and cleanest source available for the Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids (those fatty acids which the body cannot manufacture on its own and must obtain from our diets). Emu oil contains Omega 7 which is a powerful anti-inflammatory, additionally, it has a high concentration of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). This compound is the energy resource your body uses to convert the EFA's into specific substances called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are tissue-like hormones that control all bodily functions at the cellular level. One type of prostaglandins is PG1 which has many beneficial effects, including reducing inflammation, inhibiting blood clotting, and maintaining various regulatory states in the body. The strong anti-inflammatory properties help the body recover from injury by reducing pain, swelling, and redness. So Emu Oil provides the Omegas needed as well as the energy source necessary to convert them.
Digestive and Immune System
Emu Oil has been shown to reduce inflammation of the digestive tracts. This can help with conditions like Crohn's, Irritable Bowell Syndrome (IBD), Diverticulitis, Leaky Gut, and inflammation resulting from chemotherapy. All of these inflammatory conditions impact the health of your immune system because 70 percent of the cells that make up your immune system are located there.
Nervous System and Cognitive Health
Research has shown that omega-3 fats are necessary to develop, maintain, and protect structures of the central nervous system from conception through pregnancy and infancy and, undoubtedly, throughout life.
Energy and Weight Loss
Essential fatty acids have been proven to stimulate the body's metabolism and increase the body's ability to burn stored saturated fats. The Omega 9 essential fatty acid is high in anti-inflammatory properties and produces a satiate response that helps give you the feeling of fullness. EFAs are a natural part of the lining of our cells and play a part in almost every function of our body. They are the conduit through which oxygen transfer occurs in the human body. Oxygen transfer to red blood cells is the process by which food and oxygen are turned into the energy required to sustain life.
