Culinary Argan Oil is used for cooking, eating and also for its healthy properties.
In Morocco edible Argan oil is taken by the spoon for health problems and is not available in Capsules. It is used in traditional medicine for health problems including Arthritis, Diabetes and heart disease.
Recent studies, which we review in our articles, now confirm the science behind the traditional use of Culinary Argan Oil.
What type of Argan Oil Do You Use for Health
There are two types of Argan Oil – Cosmetic Argan Oil and Culinary Argan Oil.
Culinary Oil is used for eating and as a nutritional supplement.
Cosmetic Argan Oil is used for skin and hair care.
Culinary Argan Oil has twice the anti oxidant vitamin content of Olive Oil which is so important for tackling a whole range of health issues. Furthermore it is rich in Omega fatty acids, Triglycerides, Phytosterols, Saponins and many other bio-active nutrients.
It is this rich blend of bio-active compounds that give Culinary Argan Oil its health benefits.
Culinary Argan nut oil is high oleic acid and natural plant sterols.
This makes culinary Argan oil of interest in the regulation of blood cholesterol levels.
One 21 day study discovered that good HDL cholesterol levels in the blood had gone up significantly for subjects given edible Argan Oil.
In addition, it significantly reduced Triglycerides levels in the blood. Triglycerides are linked with cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis and stroke.
Heart Disease & Strokes
Damage to the coronary artery walls predispose to forming thrombi leading to acute coronary syndromes such as unstable angina and MI and related effects such as stroke.
Foods such as edible Argan Oil have many beneficial effects such as lowering triglycerides levels – which are linked to cardiovascular diseases, atherosclerosis and stroke .
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.
Further studies into blocking abnormal fatty deposit within the walls of arteries has also been examined.
In Morocco Culinary Argan Oil is used for its anti-inflammatory effects.
It contains Triterpenoids, butyrospermol, known for their anti-inflammatory benefits.
In addition, raised levels of linoleic acid, in Culinary Argan Oil increase production of prostaglandins 1 which can help improve rheumatologic conditions.
Antioxidants, flavonoids, sapponins and tocopherols are also found in high concentrations in Argan Oil. These nutrients promote good circulation and have a strong natural anti-inflammatory effects.
It is interesting note that culinary Argan Oil has been used for heart health and that patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have up to five times the risk of developing premature cardiovascular disease.
Two studies tested the use of Argan Oil in the diet for helping manage diabetes.
An promising study revealed a hypoglycaemic effect within one month in test animals.
A second study confirmed insulin-sensitising activity in cells tested with Argan press cake.
One study concludes that Argan Oil “can be recommended in the nutritional management of type 2 diabetes”. 
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 &
Capsules as a Health 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 you want to repeat a similar test yourself remember that your diet should be strictly controlled during tests to avoid positive or negative effects cause by other foods.

Stay Healthy & Live Longer by Eating Nuts!
Dr. Frank Hu, is professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health.
He worked on two long-running studies of over 120,000 people.
During the studies he discovered that “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.
The April 2012 issue of Journal of the American College of Nutrition published further studies.
These shows additional beneficial effects of eating 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.
