Emu Oil contains natural anti-inflammatory, healing properties with a wide range of omega oils that are known to facilitate good health. It contains a complete source of essential fatty acids. Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) are fats that humans cannot manufacture or synthesize. We must obtain them from our diet. Like vitamins and minerals they are essential to the body’s functions. An inadequacy of fatty acids is one of the most widespread nutritional deficiency among modern humans. This represents a serious potential health risk for children in particular since fatty acids are so crucial for proper growth and development. Incredibly, this amazing oil contains omega 3,6,9 essential fatty acids and is a powerful skin moisturizer and possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties among many other health benefits.
Emu oil is an important source of EFA’s (essential fatty acids) that help provide the body with what it needs to manufacture cell membranes. An inadequacy of fatty acids is one of the most widespread nutritional deficiency among modern humans. This represents a serious potential health risk for children in particular since fatty acids are so crucial for proper growth and development.
The primary function of EFA’s is the production of prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that regulate many of the body functions, including heart rate, blood pressure, blood clotting, fertility and conception.
Prostaglandins also play a role in immune function. Because of the many immune disorders, prostaglandins both encourage the body to fight infection and prevent the inflammatory response from getting out of control.
Without Essential Fatty Acids the body’s immune response will not be efficient.
Processing and refining vessels for the Emu Oil are performed in food grade stainless steel. In order to prevent oxidation and contamination, the oil is transferred between vessels by means of USDA and FDA approved hoses. During process, the oil passes through six (6) separate filtrations to clean the Emu Oil and remove proteins. The Emu Oil is further processed by a centrifuge prior to undergoing a drying procedure in preparation for refining.
Refining of the Emu Oil consists of a multi-stage process by which peroxides, free fatty acids and moisture are extracted from the oil. During one stage, the oil is placed under a high vacuum and raised to temperature in excess of 300 degrees F. This insures a high quality, deodorized, sterile oil, free of microbial organisms. After processing, the Emu Oil is transferred to sealed bulk containers containing an inert atmosphere. The bulk containers are then transferred to a temperature-controlled environment for storage. NO harsh chemicals are used to refine the Emu oil.
Emu Oil is highly moisturizing, a natural skin softener and has rejuvenating properties. It has been shown to reduce the depth and length of fine lines and wrinkles. Emu oil is non greasy and is highly penetrating. In fact, Emu Oil has been demonstrated to be the fastest and most penetrating oil, making it an excellent trans-dermal carrier for other added moisturizers and therapeutic ingredients.
Pure Emu Oil is natural and non-toxic, non-comedogenic (meaning that it does not clog pores), hypo-allergenic (non-irritating) and is gentle for all skin types.
Emu Oil is an effective anti-inflammatory. The potency of the anti-inflammatory effect from Emu Oil is similar to ibuprofen without the negative side-effects frequently common with traditional prescription or corticosteroid-based anti-inflammatory medications.
