An important component of argan oil are so-called tocopherols. These fat-soluble substances protect the body from environmental toxins and strengthen the immune system. Spinasterol and schottenol may have cancer-preventive effects when combined with tocopherols, which boost the immune system. In addition, argan oil has a positive effect on blood sugar levels and blood pressure. The Moroccan Berbers use it, among other things, for the treatment of
Stomach and intestinal complaints, heart and circulatory diseases, for skin diseases such as neurodermatitis and acne (link to blog1) and for skin care after a sunburn. Due to its anti-inflammatory effect, Moroccan oil is considered a natural remedy for rheumatic diseases, for example. Lipid metabolism disorders, hay fever and allergies can also be reduced by the daily intake of argan oil.
Argan oil intake
Recommended three tablespoons per day. It does not matter whether you take the oil pure, as a salad dressing or in a smoothie. Externally, the oil should be massaged onto freshly cleansed, still damp skin. Read more about “Application on the skin” here
The effect of argan oil on rheumatic diseases
The anti-inflammatory effect of argan oil can prevent rheumatic diseases and relieve acute courses. These complaints, usually triggered by a malfunction of the immune system, are often based on an inflammation of the synovial membrane. But also in patients with inflammatory bowel diseases, in which inflammatory rheumatic diseases are often also present, as well as in arthritis, a rheumatic autoimmune disease, argan oil can support and have a soothing effect. Studies of the intestinal flora of rheumatics showed that it has a significant pro-inflammatory potential. Here, intestinal health plays a particularly important role. The linoleic acid contained in argan oil
improves the intestinal mucosa and makes it less permeable. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect. In the presence of rheumatic disease, the argan oil should be taken or applied internally and externally in any case.
Change your care. At the latest in the menopause!
With the onset of menopause, i.e. already in perimenopause, both female estrogen and collagen levels decrease. The consequence for the former can be hot flashes, sweating, lack of concentration, depressive moods, weight gain, hair loss and insomnia. The latter causes dry skin as well as weakening connective tissue. The female body also produces less hyaluronic acid during menopause
and the lipid content of the skin also decreases significantly. Most women now realize that their previous care is no longer enough to keep the skin elastic. (New) wrinkles form, existing wrinkles become more pronounced and the skin becomes dry and vulnerable. In addition, estrogen regulates the sebum production of the skin. If the estrogen level now declines, testosterone makes itself felt in the female body, which in turn promotes sebum production. The result: blemished skin, blackheads and pimple formation. Skin intolerances, allergies and skin irritations also occur more frequently from perimenopause onwards. So at the latest with the onset of menopause, better long before, woman should daily monitor the body, both
internally as well as externally, with high-quality argan oil. Tips for external use can be found here.
