What is Organic Golden Flaxseed Oil?

Good fats, such as those found in this supplemental oil, offer numerous health benefits. Our obsession with fat-free diets has left many people with chronic deficiencies in essential fatty acids, leading to various symptoms including dry, flaky skin, eczema, excessive wrinkling, brittle nails and dry, flyaway or splitting hair. Flax oil provides the anti-inflammatory fatty acids necessary for maintaining healthy and flexible cell membranes as well as exerting anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties.

What is Organic Hemp Seed Oil good for?

Medical researchers at the University of Kuopio, Finland, have found evidence of the positive effects of hemp seed oil on eczema. Results showed a remarkable reduction in dryness, itching and an overall improvement in the symptoms while they were using hemp seed oil. The essential fatty acids found in hemp seed oil help stimulate the optimum formation of hair, skin, and nails – all being derived from the same stem cell line.

What are the benefits of Organic Avocado Oil?

Avocados are the highest fruit source of vitamin E. Vitamin E is known to slow the ageing process and protect against heart disease and common forms of cell damage by neutralising free radicals. A recent study showed the significance in including avocado when eating a salad and salsa – the avocado lipids (fats) helped extract the carotenoids (and significantly increased absorption) from the salad and salsa in greater quantities than if no avocado was included in the meal. Avocados are also the highest fruit source of a specific carotenoid called lutein. Other phytochemicals found in avocado include glutathione and beta-sitosterol, both of which have heart protecting factors.

What are the benefits of Organic Evening Primrose Oil?

Evening primrose oil (EPO) contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which helps the metabolism of certain anti-inflammatory agents in the body, useful in relieving various conditions including dermatitis and eczema (atopic dermatitis). Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, relapsing, itchy dermatosis of multifactorial origin, which commonly starts in childhood. Defective metabolism of essential fatty acids leading to relative dominance of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins has been reported as an important factor in the pathogenesis of AD. EPO has been found to improve skin moisture, trans-epidermal water loss, elasticity, firmness, fatigue resistance and roughness. Cold-pressed oils have been shown to contain the greatest antioxidant activity.

What are the benefits of Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil?

Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of essential fatty acids. The four dominant fatty acids are Palmitic, Stearic, Oleic, and linoleic acid. HPLC analysis of the powerful pigments found in pumpkin seed oil reveals a number of carotenoids – the main components being beta carotene and lutein.
