Description

What is pine nut oil?
Pine nut oil is pressed from the kernels of several species of  pine. Oil from some varieties of pine are more commonly used for  cooking, while oils pressed from Siberian and Korean pine kernels have  been used as nutritional supplements. Siberian pine nut oil is rich in  antioxidants and pinolenic acid, an unsaturated fatty acid found  exclusively in pine nut oil. In some assessments, the highest percentage  of pinolenic acid is found in Siberian pine nuts and the oil produced  from them as compared to other pine species. Pinolenic acid has  anti-inflammatory properties that may help protect, repair, and  strengthen the stomach and gastric lining. Studies also suggest that  unsaturated fats such as pinolenic acid may assist with:

– Reducing platelet aggregation
– Lowering blood pressure
– Improving cardiovascular health and blood lipid profiles
– Stimulating the release of digestive hormones
– Inhibiting acid production

Why is it good for you?

Digestive Relief
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
– Colitis
– Gastritis
– Gastrointestinal inflammation
– H. Pylori
– Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Appetite Control
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.
