3 Plant-Based Oils To Add to Your Arsenal
It’s no secret that the oils we use on a daily basis can influence our health and wellness. The oils we choose to cook with and eat can seriously help—or harm–our bodies. The oils present in our cosmetics can either vitalize our skin or create a shiny, clogged-pore mess. But many of us are missing out on the power of supplemental oils on our long-term health. Here are a few you might consider adding to your supplement routine.
Flaxseed oil is high in ALA, which converts to omega-3 fatty acids. This allows the body to maintain a healthy inflammation response. Although too much inflammation can be highly destructive to the human body, some inflammation is essential for processes like healing wounds and injuries or fighting infections. These fatty acids also aid in brain health, both during neurological development and throughout the lifespan.
This oft-forgotten oil provides a healthy dose of GLA, which is known to benefit skin (so make sure to stock up as winter approaches!) and even heal skin conditions. It is widely used for treating sclerosis, psoriasis, and even eczema.
For the perfect combo of both the aforementioned super-fats, black currant seed oil is the way to go. It is one of the richest sources of both Alpha-Linolenic Acid and Gamma-Linolenic Acid. These two fatty acids are essential to the body. ALA is vital for normal human growth and development and is often used to treat conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and even atherosclerosis.
