Flaxseed oil is unique both in chemical composition and biological value. We use it not only in the food industry but also in medicine; it proved to be especially useful in dietology and cosmetology.
There are two essential fatty acids in flaxseed oil:
α-Linolenic Acid (omega-3);
Linoleic acid (omega-6).
We call them essential because your body can synthesise all the fatty acids expect for these two. We can get them only through food.
The α-Linolenic Acid is the most important for our organism, and it’s quite rare in our daily rations.
There’s much more omega-3 in flaxseed oil (obtained only through cold-pressing) than in fish oil we all grew not to like (it is 64% in linseed oil versus 28% in fish oil). There are no other foods with such amount of omega-3. Apart from the fatty acids, there are vitamins of different groups in the flaxseed oil (A, E, K, B).
Milk thistle oil has been known for more than two thousand years for its beneficial influence on human body. Ancient Romans used it to treat liver diseases; it has been used in the Middle Ages Europe for treating hepatitis and cirrhosis. People in India have been using and use it even nowadays in traditional medicine.
Milk thistle became especially popular after the research of the Institute of Pharmacy in Munich, in 1968. It revealed how incredibly healthy the components of the milk thistle are.
The main ingredient in the oil is silymarin, a rare biologically active substance. It helps the liver to regenerate its cells faster.
Chlorophyll rejuvenates body tissues by fastening metabolism inside the cell.
Carotenoids have antiallergic qualities, help with metabolism in the liver and heart muscle.
Carotene is vitally important as a growth factor.
Tocopherol protects our organism from harmful chemical and physical factors that can cause cancer. It is also a powerful antioxidant that prevents the cells of our body from natural aging.
Milk thistle oil contains a lot of vitamins: B1, B2, B5, B6, B9, B12, C, D, E, K, F, and also potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, iron, iodine, chromium, molybdenum, boron and vanadium, phosphorus and sodium.
Amaranth is a wonder-plant, which the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations named the discovery and hope of the XXI century. Its oil has a unique chemical composition which positively affects the body and helps all its systems. Amaranth is a rare source of squalene.
Squalene is one of the most common lipids produced by human skin cells. It is a natural moisturiser, and it also helps our body to prevent cancer by oxidising the cells.
