What is Activated Black Seed Oil?
Pumpkin Seed Oil (Pepita Oil)
Pumpkin seeds are one vegetable seed proven to reduce the risk of breast cancer in post-menopausal women.
The future is promising for men as well as women — pumpkin seeds may also reduce or inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells. Pumpkin seed oil, in particular, can reduce the effects of specific carcinogens, making it a useful natural cancer treatment for many different types of cancer.
For those currently being treated for cancer, pumpkin seed oil may also be an answer to common problems. Its antioxidant properties create a filter for radiation and protect against or prevent small intestinal damage from methotrexate, a treatment for several types of cancer and also rheumatoid arthritis.
Omega 6 Fatty Acid
Pumpkin seed oil contains linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty essential fatty acid. The omega-6 fatty acids are crucial for normal growth and development and for brain function, and they help to stimulate hair and skin growth, regulate metabolism, and maintain bone health and the reproductive system, according to the University of Maryland (UM) Medical Center.
The phytosterols in pumpkin seed oil can help to lower blood cholesterol. Phytosterols work by interfering with cholesterol absorption in the intestines, according to the British Journal of Nutrition.
The tocopherol in pumpkin seed oil is a powerful antioxidant, also known as vitamin E. This helps the body use vitamin K. It also has a role in the formation of red blood cells, according to the UM Medical Center.
Pumpkin seed oil is a source of vitamin K. This vitamin can help promote strong bones in elderly people. It’s needed by everyone, reveals the UM Medical Center, because blood would not stick together, or coagulate, without it.
The oil of pumpkin seeds is a rich source of phytoestrogens, a property that helped lower to lower systolic and diastolic blood pressures in rats during a 12-week study on pumpkin seed oil supplementation, according to M. Gossell-Williams, who authored the 2008 study published in “Phytotherapy Research.”
Flax Seed Oil
- Excellent natural source of Omega-3 fatty acids
- Omega-3 fatty acids are essential dietary additions
Flaxseed oil, also known as Linseed oil, is an excellent natural source of Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) which is an Omega-3 fatty acid. As the body is unable to produce them on its own, Omega-3 fatty acids are essential dietary additions. Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.
Organic Oregano Oil
Oregano oil is high in phenols, which are natural phytochemical compounds with beneficial antioxidant effects. The two most abundant phenols in it are:
• Thymol — a natural fungicide with antiseptic properties. It helps boost your immune system, works as a shield against toxins, and even helps prevent tissue damage and encourages healing.
• Carvacrol — found to be effective against various bacterial infections, such as Candida albicans, staphylococcus, E. coli, campylobacter, salmonella, klebsiella, the aspergillus mold, giardia, pseudomonas, and listeria.
Other healthful compounds in oregano oil include:10
• Terpenes — known for their powerful antibacterial properties.
• Rosmarinic acid — an antioxidant that prevents free radical damage and has shown promise in treating allergic asthma and preventing cancer and atherosclerosis. It also works as a natural antihistamine that helps reduce fluid buildup and swelling caused by allergy attacks.
• Naringin — inhibits the growth of cancer cells and helps boost the antioxidants in oregano oil.
Nutrients like vitamins A, C, and E, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, manganese, copper, boron, and niacin are also found in oregano oil.
Oregano oil has wide-reaching health benefits, but is most associated with respiratory and immune system health. It is known for helping prevent and treat infections, such as:
• Urinary tract infections (UTIs) caused by bacteria like E. coli, Proteus,and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
• Respiratory infections brought on by Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria strains.
• Yeast infections, even those that are resistant to the commonly used antifungal drug Diflucan.
• Parasitic infections caused by the amoeba giardia — it was even found to be more effective than antibiotics like Tinidazol.16
• Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection — A team of Indian and British researchers found that oregano oil has strong antibacterial properties that can help kill this deadly superbug.
Oregano oil has also shown promise in preventing food-borne illnesses caused by pathogens like listeria, salmonella, E. coli, and Shigella dysenteria. Adding it to foods not only helps kill the bacteria, but may also alleviate food poisoning symptoms.
An animal study from University of Arizona researchers also found that oregano oil can help kill norovirus,18 which causes gastroenteritis. Oregano oil is also a prized antiseptic essential oil in aromatherapy because its proportion of phenols is said to be the highest of all aromatic plants.
Organic Lemon Oil
It is added to boost the liver detox as our liver is the most important organ to clear the toxic in our body.
