“New research is showing that emu oil has therapeutic potential for the treatment of a variety of common bowel diseases in addition to the intestinal damage caused by cancer chemotherapy.”

“These bowel conditions include Irritable Bowel Syndrome, IBD, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcers, Acid Reflux, Ulcerative Colitis, Spastic Colon…


Emu Oil’s is proving its worth in the fight against Digestive Disorders with its exceptional anti-inflammatory properties

The research currently being carried out at the University of Adelaide using Emu Tracks Bio-Active Emu Oil is achieving significant results in reducing inflammation associated with bowel disorders.

“The study has shown that Emu Oil accelerates the repair process by stimulating the growth of the intestinal ‘crypts’. Longer crypts and villi mean a healthier bowel”, says research leader Professor Gordon Howarth.

Up to 60% of cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy receive painful intestinal ulcers but there are currently “no effective treatment options”, the researchers said.

“We have now done sufficient studies in the laboratory to show that Emu Oil has potential to help reduce the debilitating symptoms of these conditions and to enhance intestinal recovery.”

The study revealed that Emu Oil demonstrated enhanced recovery and repair; reduced the severity of damage in intestines affected with ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease; and significantly decreased acute intestinal inflammatory activity in non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) induced gastrointestinal disease.

Emu Tracks Bio-Active Emu Oil is used exclusively in all the gastro-intestinal research conducted at the University of Adelaide due to its established and proven activity. Managing Director of Emu Tracks, Chris Gregory, who is President of the Emu Industry, has been working with the University of Adelaide for the last 6 years facilitating this project.
