The Moroccan Berbers know and appreciate the healing effect of the fruits of the argan tree (Argania spinosa) for several centuries. Their almond-like kernels are harvested, processed and pressed mainly in complex manual work by the Berber women. The precious Argan oil has already conquered the whole world and impresses with its health promoting and healing effects.
Because of its various benefits, the precious Argan oil is currently one of the most expensive oils in the world. It is much healthier than the best olive oil and has unique active substances and ingredients, which have always been indispensable in medicine and cosmetics. Two different kinds of Argan oil are available.
It is usually distinguished between the oil from unroasted (virgin Argan oil) and roasted seeds. Both variants are of the highest quality and are used for various purposes. Argan oil from roasted seeds is mostly used as an edible oil. The slight roasted aroma makes for the typical nut-like flavor. Native Argan oil can also be used as an edible oil, but has a much milder taste.
Furthermore, Argan oil is available with an organic certification. The difference to regular Argan oil is only in the use of the term "organic". It is certified and subject to regular quality checks by official control bodies. In fact, however, also non-certified Argan oil has its origin in organic farming, as there is no Argan oil, which does not come from organic farming.
Since Argan oil is not only a true delicacy, but also has highly effective healing powers, it is a rarity and therefore precious. It has more valuable ingredients than other oils, such as extremely high concentrations of biologically active, essential and unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids (more than 80 percent), with mainly oleic and linoleic acids.
In addition, Argan oil contains a crucial proportion of significant natural antioxidants, which provide effective protection against harmful free radicals. Argan oil is furthermore extremely rich in alpha-tocopherol, which has an immensely powerful vitamin E activity. The sterols spinasterol and schottenol, which play an important role for the immune system, have already attracted the interest of several experts.
Therefore, the Moroccan Berber families traditionally use Argan oil for a number of medical and healing purposes. Not only stomach as well as intestinal disorders, but also circulatory and cardiac problems are treated with the oil. Even for the disinfection and healing of wounds and for sunburn Argan oil is used successfully. Conventional medicine knows of the application of Argan oil to treat chicken pox and acne (redness and itching are reduced), neurodermatitis, eczema and psoriasis, joint pain, rheumatism and hemorrhoids.
Argan oil provides the human organism with indispensable unsaturated essential fatty acids such as lignoceric, myristic and arachidonic acid, which can support the entire body effectively when used in the kitchen and as a healthy food supplement. It has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system and cholesterol levels and thus affects the entire human metabolism. The healing properties of Argan oil are also supported by scientific results.
The skin aging process of humans is predominantly accelerated by free radicals such as UV radiation, alcohol and smoking but also by aggressive medication and physical effort. Argan oil steps in at precisely these points. It effectively protects the cells of the immune system against these harmful attacks, whereby the effects achieved convince with immense success.
Vitamin A and E, and antioxidants strengthen the human immune system, so that various diseases are prevented. Tip: As a precaution and for general well-being, it is sufficient if 3 teaspoons (or 1 tablespoon) once are day are taken. Argan oil is thus a very worthwhile, healthy and above all natural nutritional supplement that contains a sufficient amount of the most valuable ingredients.
