I love raw pine nuts in my salad so when I read that Pine Nut Oil is making a name for itself in the weight loss supplement product market, I had to do further research. The oil, pressed from the kernels of certain pine trees, is becoming known as one of the best nutritional supplements for natural appetite control.
The use of pine nut oil as an appetite suppressant dates back centuries. Most noteworthy are the Siberians who have used pine nuts as part of their diet. In times when food was scarce during the long winters or when they have to travel long distances, the oil would give a feeling of fullness that lasted a long while as well as providing many vitamins and essential nutrients.
Clinical studies conducted in Russia and China found that Pine nut oil also contains a high concentration of free radical scavengers, which help reduce oxidative damage. The oil is also recognized in both countries as a remedy for inflammation of the digestive tract such as peptic ulcers or gastritis. It is also a metabolism booster and digestive aid.
A compound in pine tree nuts called pinolenic acid acts as a strong appetite suppressant by stimulating the release of cholecystokinin, a hormone that functions as an appetite suppressant. Cholecystokinin also known as CCK is also plays a critical function in digestion. In the intestinal tract, CCK triggers the release of digestive enzymes from the pancreas and bile from the gall bladder. This function of enhancing the metabolic system ensures that nutrient requirements are met and this in turn stops food cravings. In a study, overweight women reported significantly reduced appetite only 30 minutes after taking the pine kernel oil capsules compared with an olive oil placebo.
Pine nut oil is an exquisite gourmet oil and has a subtle, slightly sweet flavor. It is usually added to food after cooking as a "finish". It makes a great addition to salad dressings and can be drizzled over pasta. Pine nuts make a filling snack and are popular in a Raw Food Diet as a source of protein and fat.
Pine nut oil is very rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, which makes it a healthy, nutritional, and energizing oil.
Rich in phosphorous, vitamin B1 and iron, it makes good food for the brain. It has also been found to support the respiratory system and is a natural remedy for coughs, chronic bronchitis, asthma, and ulcers.
