Last Updated: 12/20/2016
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.

Beyond the Omega Fatty Acids, Emu Oil contains 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 soy beans 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 were consuming the least amount of K2.

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 also 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. 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. Emu oil gel caps are also quite effective to aid and control the symptoms of diabetes and can also be an effective aid to weight loss 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.
