Did you know that oil rendered from the fat of the emu may be a viable substitute for your fish oil capsules?
Essential Fatty Acid
Emu Oil contains a variety of fatty acids including oleic, linolenic and linoleic oils. Oleic is the main fatty acid in emu oil, which is an Omega-9. Linoleic oil is an Omega-6, and Linoleic is an Omega-3. Emu Oil can be used as an omega 3,6,9 fatty acid supplement.
Studies have found that the topical effects of emu oil have shown that it decreases inflammation. A study on the internal use of emu oil – to determine the effectiveness in reducing inflammation on the lining of the digestive track – took place at the University of Adelaide in Australia. They found that emu oil was able to reduce inflammation in the lining of the gut and improve the structure of the mucosal membranes.
Emu oil’s anti-inflammatory properties may extend to easing arthritis pain and inflammation. Researchers in Australia found that topical emu oil applications reduced arthritis in rates.
Our Emu Tracks Emu Oil Capsules contains 100% pure emu oil in a gelatin capsule.
Recommended Capsule Dose
The recommended adult dose is dependent upon the relevant condition. In a severe, chronic condition, the recommendation would generally be 2 capsules, 3 times a day (with each meal). In more moderate conditions, which is the more common application, we would recommend at least, 2 capsules in the morning and 2 at night.
For general maintenance of good health, we would recommend 1 to 2 capsules each day.
