The production of Argan oil is a long process. After pulping fruit, every kernel must be cracked to recuperate the seed located inside. Then with a machine cold pressure, we extract and filter the oil. The difference with the cosmetic Argan oil is that the seedsare first roasted prior to pressing, which give it a special color and a strong smell for the culinary oil. It is very rich in Vitamin E, unsaturated fatty acids and without cholesterol.
Gift Morocco picked 5 main reasons why you should include roasted Argan oil to your cooking:
1- Benefits for your heart health
Oleic acid, a monounsaturated omega-9 fat, is found in several foods such as avocado oil and olive oil. Argan oil is also a very rich source of this compound. Oleic acid is known for its heart-protective properties.
Actually, some researchers have affirmed that Argan oil can be compared to olive oil when it comes to its ability to reduce the risk of heart disease. This is possible through its impact on the levels of antioxidant in the blood.
Another study has shown that the consumption of Argan oil in higher intakes can be associated with lowering the levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol and increasing blood levels of antioxidants. It has an evident consequence which is reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and inflammatory disorders.
A study about heart disease risk was taken on 40 healthy people. The group of people who consumed 15 grams of edible Argan oil on a daily basis for 30 days has experienced a reduction of 16% and 20% of, respectively, “bad” LDL and triglyceride levels.
2- Anticancer effects
Some researchers have proved that Argan oil may slow the reproduction and growth of certain cancer cells.
A study has shown that a compound in Argan oil called polyphenolic helped inhibiting cancer cell growth by 50% when compared to the control group. This test was applied on to prostate cancer cells.
Another study on a grade of pharmaceutical mixture of vitamin E and Argan oil has shown an increase of the rate of cell death on colon and breast cancer cells.
3- Anti-aging properties
Some researchers argue that edible Argan oil helps reduce inflammation and oxidative stress which helps with slowing the aging process.
Whether it is ingested or applied directly on the skin, Argan oil can be effective for improving skin hydration and elasticity in postmenopausal women.
The cosmetic Argan oil that is used externally also helps reducing visual signs of aging. This oil, whether it is edible or cosmetic, it supports the repair and maintenance of the skin in order to keep it healthy either when it is applied on the skin or when it is ingested.
4- Anti-Inflammatory and antioxidant properties
Argan oil is very rich in several phenolic compounds which are responsible for many of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Argan oil is rich in tocopherol (vitamin E). This vitamin is considered as a fat-soluble one. This characteristic serves as a strong antioxidant that reduces the free radicals’ damaging effects. There are other compounds in this precious oil such as CoQ10, melatonin and plant sterols, which also have an important role in the antioxidant capacities.
Actually, when talking about cosmetic argan oil, it can also reduce external inflammations caused by injuries or infections. For such case, this variety of oil needs to be applied on your skin.
5- Benefits for your diabetes
Some researchers have shown that culinary Argan oil may help with preventing diabetes.
The previous studies resulted in an important decrease in fasting blood sugar as well as insulin resistance in mice fed a high-sugar diet alongside Argan oil.
These tests largely attributed these beneficial properties to the antioxidant content of the roasted Argan oil.
