Why is it good for you?
Siberian pine nut oil’s effectiveness as a natural digestive aid for these conditions is partly due to the concentration of carotenoids found in the oil. Carotenoids are organic pigments found in some plants, algae, and fungi and help reduce oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals, along with an unhealthy and stressful lifestyle, play a role in the development of gastric and duodenal disorders. Siberian pine nut oil is also rich in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant.
Pine nut oil is used as an aid in the symptom relief of a wide range of digestive and gastrointestinal disorders such as:
- Acid reflux (GERD)
- Barret’s oesophagus
- Gastrointestinal inflammation
- H. Pylori
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Research has indicated that pinolenic acid may help stimulate the release of digestive hormones CCK and GLP1. These hormones inhibit acid production in the stomach, increase insulin secretion, and also help with the absorption of essential nutrients that your body needs. Pinolenic acid has also been shown to aid in appetite suppression when taken 30-60 minutes before meals, reducing food intake and increasing feelings of fullness.
Although appetite control studies were conducted with Korean pine nut oil, the findings were of the effects of the free fatty acids unique to the oil, namely pinolenic acid. Siberian pine nut oil is also rich in pinolenic acid, and in some assessments contain higher pinolenic acid content compared to Korean pine nut oil. We can therefore draw similar conclusions with Siberian pine nut oil in regards to its effects on appetite suppression.
Siberian pine nut oil is best taken on its own 30-40 minutes before meal times. Keep refrigerated once opened. Use within 2 months of opening. Do not heat. Not suitable for baking or frying.
