6 Health Benefits of Pine Nut Oil

Pine nut oil has a positive effect on all human organs. We choose six properties of pine nut oil that are the most researched by scientists and most often mentioned by our customers in numerous reviews. Pine nut oil relieves stomach ulcers and gastritis, is good for the cardiovascular system, strengthens the immune system, promotes weight loss, improves skin condition, and protects against the negative effects of free radicals. Let’s see what these health benefits are related to.

Diseases of the gastrointestinal tract

Pine nut oil is effective in the prevention and treatment of inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract – in particular, stomach ulcers or gastritis. Folic acid from the oil heals the mucous membrane of the gastrointestinal tract and promotes its rapid healing. In addition, for the health of any mucous membranes in the human body, vitamin A is needed. It is also found in pine nut oil. [1] Fatty acids (alpha-linolenic, oleic) have anti-inflammatory properties that are important in preventing the development of gastritis and stomach ulcers.

The cardiovascular system

Due to its complex effect, pine nut oil is a powerful preventive agent against serious diseases of the cardiovascular system – atherosclerosis, heart attacks, strokes, and other conditions.

  • Pine nut oil contains nutrients that regulate cholesterol levels, one of the main root causes of problems with blood vessels and the heart. In particular, a rare pinolenic acid has a positive effect on cholesterol levels. [2] Other fatty acids have the same property.[3]
  • Pine nut oil also normalizes blood pressure. In 2014, an analysis of 70 randomized controlled trials was conducted, proving that omega-3 acids reduce systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure.[4]

The immune system

Pine nut oil has an immunomodulatory effect. It contains vitamins A and E, as well as zinc and the amino acid arginine: a deficiency of these nutrients leads to serious malfunctions of the thymus, the organ that produces T-cells that are essential for the immune system. [5]

Another component of the oil, oleic acid, interacts directly with another type of immune cell – neutrophils. Neutrophils are responsible for the timing and intensity of inflammation of body tissues. Thus, pine nut oil influences how fast and strong the body’s reaction to any pathogens is.

Weight loss

Many scientists have searched for the reason why pine nut oil helps to lose weight. Recent studies show that this property is largely due to the high content of pinolenic acid. It has the ability to regulate appetite, so that the feeling of fullness when eating comes faster, and the appetite is dulled. [6] Pine nut oil affects the production of a special peptide GLP-1 that is directly related to appetite suppression. Scientists who discovered this fact compared the effect of pine nut oil with olive oil and came to the conclusion that pine nut oil is the most effective. [7]

Improved skin condition

External and internal use of pine oil significantly improves the condition of the skin. This is due to the following properties of the oil:

  • It supports the synthesis of lipids in the stratum corneum of the skin. This strengthens the protective barrier of the skin.
  • It favorably influences a hormonal background. Any hormonal imbalance always affects the condition of the skin.
  • It regulates the production of subcutaneous fat, thereby preventing excessive oiliness of the skin. [8]

Fighting free radicals

Free radicals are a by-product of oxidative stress. Accumulating in the body, they not only lead to early aging, but also provoke the development of many serious diseases, including Parkinson’s disease.

Pine nut oil protects the body from free radicals and promotes detoxification — the removal of radicals. This effect is provided, in particular, by essential amino acids. They neutralize the action of free radicals and remove toxins from the body. In addition, scientists have proven that a combination of vitamin E and selenium that are also found in pine nut oil, is an effective detoxifying complex. [9]
