Studies show that taking Alpha-linolenic acid omega-3 fatty acids leads to a 14% to 20% reduction of heart attacks. In addition the Omega fatty acids from this plant based source were found to be twice as effective as those derived from fish oils.

Nut Oils, Weight Loss, B.M.I

Carol O’Neil, PhD, MPH, RD and associates evaluated data from 13,292 men and women aged 19 and older.

Twenty-four hour data was analysed for the intake of almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts.
Consumers of nuts were defined as those who consumed at least ¼ ounce tree nuts per day.

Participants were found to have a decreased metabolic syndrome risk factors that included abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, elevated fasting glucose and low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in comparison with those who did not consume nuts. Nut consumers also had a lower level of C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation and indicator in conditions such as Arthritis.

Maureen Ternus, M.S., R.D., Executive Director of the International Tree Nut Council Nutrition Research & Education Foundation (INC NREF), adds, “In light of these new data and the fact that the FDA has issued a qualified health claim for nuts and heart disease with a recommended intake nuts per day”.

How to use Culinary Argan Oil or Capsules as a Supplement

How Much to take?

Most studies used about about 1 Tablespoon ( 15ml ) a day of culinary oil in tests.
This is the same amount of oil that was used in studies testing the effects of Argan Oil.

The easiest way is to eat it with a spoon or add it to food.

To get this dose using capsules you need to take about 15 Capsules or Argan tablets.
This is because capsules contain around 1ml oil which isn’t enough oil for treating health problems.

Taking the pure Culinary Argan Oil using a spoon is easier – and tastier!

Furthermore, buying pure Argan Oil is more economical than buying capsules.

How Long Do You Need Take Argan Oil Supplement For?

Researchers discovered that benefits were often detectable within 3 weeks.

Full length studies lasted around 60 days.

During this time patients were given around 15ml of oil per day.
This means a treatment dose is around 450 ml of pure oil per month.

If looking to repeat a similar test yourself remember that diet is strictly controlled during tests to avoid positive or negative effects of other foods.

Stay Healthy & Live Longer by Eating Nuts!

Dr. Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health worked on two long-running studies of over 120,000 people.

He discovered that[0] “People who ate nuts every day lived longer, healthier lives than people who didn’t eat nuts,”.

The report revealed that daily nut-eaters were less likely to die of cancer, heart disease, and respiratory disease.
They were 20% less likely to have died during the study than those who avoided nuts.

In addition, the April 2012 issue of Journal of the American College of Nutrition published studies showing beneficial effects for tree nuts on reducing groups of risk factors, known as metabolic syndrome. These factors are associated with the development of type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease and cholesterol.
