How Nutra Origin Omega 3-6-9 Emu Oil works:
Dry Skin and Wrinkles
Are you bothered by dry, flaky skin? Then indulge your skin cells with rich and nourishing emu oil.
Made up of essential fatty acids - including Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9 fatty acids - emu oil is a natural moisturizer that penetrates deeply to get to the heart of dry skin. One group of researchers thinks they know why it is so effective. By analyzing the fatty acids composition of emu oil through gas chromatography, they discovered it has a high concentration of monounsaturated fatty acids (Omega-9), which allows it to easily penetrate the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin).
A double-blind study in humans found that emu oil, applied topically every day for two weeks, delivered excellent moisturizing properties. In fact, emu oil had better skin penetration than mineral oil - commonly used in drugstore moisturizers - and was preferred by all 11 subjects. People participating in the study also appreciated emu oil's superior texture and low comedogenicity (ability to initiate breakouts).
It's especially important to keep your skin well-moisturized as you age. Why? Because aging skin loses its ability to retain moisture - making fine lines and wrinkles look more noticeable. Once you give your skin cells the hydration they crave, skin naturally plumps and fine lines and wrinkles diminish in appearance.
Another downside of aging skin is that it becomes thinner, more fragile, and more prone to injury with each passing decade. At the same time, aging skin loses its ability to repair itself. That's a real double whammy - not only is your skin more prone to injury as you get older, it also has a harder time healing!
The good news is that emu oil can help. A small study looked at the effects of topical emu oil application in elderly individuals. Eight adults, with an average age of 72, applied emu oil at least once nightly to the back of their non-dominant hand. They left the other hand alone. Researchers measured the skin thickness of the emu-treated hand at the beginning of the study and again after six weeks of application. The results were eye-opening: overall, there was an eight percent increase in skin thickness.
Skin and Hair Growth
Initial research suggests rubbing emu oil on your skin and scalp may promote increased skin cell turnover (revealing fresher, younger-looking skin) and stimulate hair growth (contributing to a fuller head of hair).
Researchers at Boston University Medical Center studied the effect of topical emu oil on skin and hair growth in mice. Two groups of mice had their hair removed. One group received a topical application of emu oil every day for 14 days; the other group received a placebo (corn oil). Amazingly, by the end of the study, the mice receiving emu oil experienced a 29 percent increase in skin cell proliferation compared to the mice that got corn oil. Additionally, analysis of the mice's hair follicles showed they were stimulated to proliferate and grow.
Burns, Abrasions and Scars
Keep a bottle of Liquid Emu Oil in your first aid kit - it will come in handy for those inevitable burns, abrasions, and scars.
Two studies in rats have shown that topical emu oil alleviates the inflammation of burns and accelerates wound healing. Another study researched emu oil's effect on wound healing in humans. The participants acted as their own controls: burns on one half of their bodies were treated with emu oil; burns on the other half were treated with placebo oil. Neither the researchers nor the subjects knew which oil was which. After six months, the scars were assessed to see how well they had healed. Overall, emu-treated areas healed significantly better than placebo-treated areas. Scars that had been treated with emu oil also showed better pigmentation and more pliability.
Sore Joints and Minor Sprains
What do sore joints and minor sprains have in common? Both are caused by inflammation. While short-term inflammation is a positive part of the healing process from injury, when inflammation is on-going it can actually damage the tissues.
Several studies in mice and rats have shown that emu oil has powerful anti-inflammatory activity, so it may help relieve sore, inflamed joints and alleviate minor sprains. In fact, one study found that topical application of emu oil to mice with inflamed skin decreased two measures of inflammation (IL-1 aplha and TNF-alpha) by 70 and 60 percent respectively within six hours.

Many chronic health conditions are preventable. They result from years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise, or prolonged exposure to stress. Some have become so common that they do not even remember what good health feels like. Now leading health organizations now tell us that by returning to a healthier lifestyle - by getting the right nutrients, becoming active, and learning to manage the stressors in life - many of these conditions can be prevented, managed, or even reversed. Why can't theyr address all health problems and bodily challenges medically? The question has become a central topic in many leading publications. But the answer is fairly obvious: Western medicine is organized around acute illness, not long-term health.
"The US health care system is still largely designed to treat patients with acute medical problems.... 'At no point in medical school are physicians exposed to patients with chronic illness, except for acute episodes leading to hospitalization,' says Michael Lockshin, MD, a Harvard Medical School graduate and head of the women and rheumatic disease center at New York City Hospital for Special Surgery. "The result: Many patients shuffle from doctor to doctor in search of relief from many complications of their chronic illnesses. On average, people with one chronic condition see three different physicians and fill seven prescriptions a year, according to Partnership for Solutions, a research group at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.
People with five or more chronic conditions make 12 physician visits and fill 50 prescriptions a year.... "Chronic diseases are now the leading cause of disability and death in the United States, with seven in 10 deaths each year attributed to such illnesses as cancer, heart diseases, diabetes and stroke. About 133 million Americans - nearly one in two adults - live with at least one chronic disease, and more than one in 10 have three or more.... "'The present medical model has ignored many of the issues - pain, fatigue, anger - that interfere with people's lives,' says Nancy Whitelaw, Ph.D, NCOA senior vice president. 'Until their care system focuses on improved health for people with chronic conditions, they will never get a handle on skyrocketing costs.
