Benefits of Argan Oil

Argan oil is extracted by pressing the nut from the Moroccan Argan tree, and there are number of health benefits that can be gained from this oil. Argan oil is expensive and rare because Argan trees don’t start producing fruit and nuts until the tree has matured for 30 to 50 years. These trees grow in limited areas, and the oil is very valuable.

 

Health Benefits of Argan Oil

 

This oil has many compounds that are very beneficial for your health, including mono- and poly-unsaturated fatty acids. Additionally, tocopherol is another compound that is great for your health. When you are using Argan oil, some of the health benefits include:

 

° Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease

° Lowers high cholesterol levels

° Prevents certain types of cancer

° Decreases the risk of diabetes by preventing insulin resistance

 

Many studies have examined the health benefits that can be gained when Argan oil is consumed, and it is a delicious oil that can be added to a variety of dishes. It has a nutty flavor and enhances the taste and aroma of many dishes. Argan oil should only be used for seasoning and never for cooking. It is truly a rare and exotic treat. Another great way to gain the benefits of this oil is by applying it topically on the skin because your body will soak up the oil and incorporate some of the compounds within the oil.

 

How to Use Argan Oil

 

As you can see, there are many health benefits to using Argan oil. This healthy oil can be used in food, or it is a very popular ingredient in beauty products. In fact, there are some people who claim that Argan oil is the best ingredient to add to beauty products.

 

Here are a few beauty products that I love and you might consider:

 

° 100% Pure & Raw Organic Argan Oil: An advantage to Argan oil is the fact that it is very versatile, and you use a single ingredient in many ways. Argan is the only active ingredient, and it can be applied to the nails to make them grow stronger and faster, the face to reduce wrinkles and increase collagen, and anywhere on your body that needs moisturizing. It alleviates chapping, cracking and roughness due to winter cold. Argan Oil cleanses acne-prone skin and leaves it shiny and radiant. It is the perfect ingredient to use on your hair because it adds moisture, calms frizzy ends, and makes your hair shine. The best way to use it is by applying the oil to your hair while it is still damp, or it can also be applied to the ends of your hair after the hair is dry. You can also apply the hair oil to your scalp, to overcome dry scalp problems. Use a cotton ball to dab the oil on your scalp right before bed, allowing the oil to moisturize your scalp while you are sleeping. Then, wash your hair in the morning to rise out the excess oil.

 

° Organic Argan Eye Serum: By moisturizing the skin around your eyes with a healing oil, you can get rid of dark circles and under-eye bags to give your face a youthful appearance. The right, natural ingredients can help you to reverse the signs of aging and decrease wrinkles and skin discoloration.

 

° Organic Argan Eye Makeup Remover: Most commercial makeup removers have a host of toxic ingredients, and you should stay far away from these dangerous ingredients. This Argan eye makeup remover is a great way to take off your makeup at the end of the day, without exposing your body to dangerous ingredients. Plus, this eye makeup remover moisturizes your skin while you are removing your makeup.

 

Make sure that you are buying Argan oil products from a trusted source, in order to ensure the quality of oil. In doing so, you can have peace of mind knowing that you are staying away from dangerous ingredients that are often added to beauty products.
