Cedar nut oil is a natural product that has no synthetic analogs. This oil is considered to be the healthiest one of all the vegetable oils! Cedar nut oil is very rich in vitamin E, and also contains a huge amount of micro- and macroelements: potassium, beta-carotene, calcium; copper, manganese, iron, chromium, fluorine, molybdenum, boron, vanadium, titanium, silicon, cobalt, selenium, nickel, silver, iodine, phosphorus.

It helps to treat many diseases associated with the digestive tract, increase immunity and strengthen the nervous system. In medicine, cedar nut oil can replace any other oil (sea buckthorn, burdock, coconut, almond, etc.), but it cannot be replaced.

Cedar nut oil has a pleasant taste and aroma and is easily absorbed into the body. Thus, it is used for food and cosmetic purposes.

The benefits of cedar nut oil

The healing properties of the oil are determined by its rich composition. By nature itself, many useful and irreplaceable substances for human health are ideally balanced in it.

Thus, cold-pressed cedar nut oil is the leader among all vegetable oils in terms of the content of vitamin E (tocopherol). For example, in comparison with olive oil, cedar nut oil contains up to five times more tocopherols! Vitamin E is also called the “vitamin of youth”, and it is not a coincidence. It has a pronounced antioxidant effect, serves as a barrier to free radicals, and slows down the aging process. In addition, it normalizes hormonal levels in men and women and prevents the formation of blood clots.

Rarely found in foods, gamma-linolenic acid is also found in cedar nut oil. This substance has anti-inflammatory properties, reduces the amount of “bad” cholesterol in the blood, accelerates the metabolism of fats, thereby helping to gradually healthy weight loss.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6 are required for consumption with food because the human body is not able to produce them on its own. Cedar nut oil contains these substances in an amount sufficient to maintain the health of blood vessels, the brain, and other body systems. The ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 is 1 to 2, and this is rare compliance with the norm since there is usually much more Omega-6.

Cedar nut oil also contains vitamins A, PP, D, B vitamins. They are necessary for the general health and maintenance of all metabolic processes in the human body. Vitamins B1, B2, B3 are needed for calming the nervous system. They help to keep blood composition in order, stay in good mood and maintain mental health. Also, vitamins of this group are able to raise performance and restore the vital energy of a person.

Thus, vitamins of group B together with A, E, D, K vitamins are beneficial for the nervous system, bones, heart, and blood vessels, as well as immunity in general. Phospholipids are involved in fat metabolism, provide the transport of fatty acids, and help eliminate cholesterol.

Regular consumption of pine nut oil will strengthen the immune system, help preserve youth and beauty, and protect health from negative environmental factors.
