What is Extra virgin pine nut oil (EVPO)? Is it safe to us?
Most pine nuts contain a fairly large amount of edible oil – up to 60% of their total weight. In Russia and China, it has been traditionally cold-pressed from pine nuts collected from wild-growing pines by a delicate process using unique traditional oil presses. The resulting richly fragrant, golden-colored oil with a delicious nutty flavor is called extra virgin pine nut oil (EVPO). The oil is absolutely safe to use. It is both a traditional, centuries-old food and a potent natural remedy against a number of widespread ailments, including peptic ulcers and gastritis.
Extra virgin pine nut oil has a history of many centuries of therapeutic use in Russian and Chinese traditional medicine. It is an outstanding concentrate of powerful free radical scavengers fully capable of preventing or reversing even the strongest oxidative stress.
Nowadays, extra virgin pine nut oil is being widely used by Russian, Chinese and European doctors internally for the treatment of peptic ulcers, gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining) and GERD (acid reflux). They also prescribe it externally to treat burns and bruises and improve skin condition, and use it for therapeutic inhalations, baths, and massages. Along with being a proven peptic ulcer and gastritis healer, extra virgin pine nut oil provides our body with many vital nutrients, including good fats, amino acids (building blocks for proteins), fat-soluble vitamins and antioxidants, as well as essential macro- and microelements such as magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, and iodine.
