ARGAN OIL - The 10 Commandments of LIQUID GOLD:
Fatty acids are molecules very energetic and necessary in all cellular processes in the presence of oxygen, and are essential components of phospholipids and sphingolipids, molecules that form the bilayer lipid membranes of every cell.
80% of the fatty acids of argan oil are unsaturated. The most important are oleic and linoleic acids and are present in 45% and 35% respectively, giving very good oil dietary qualities. Linoleic acid is an essential fatty acid for the human body (vitamin F), since it can not be synthesized by this and must be absorbed in the form of vegetable oil in food or in cosmetic products for the skin. Is introduced into the membrane phospholipids of epithelial cells, hydrating and nourishing the skin. So argan oil is emollient and its action provides the skin's flexibility.
Moisturizing effect is confirmed scientifically. The lack in essential fatty acid, inevitable with age, causes cutaneous aging which results in drying and a loss of elasticity of the skin, the appearance of wrinkles. If correct the fault in essential fatty acid will delay aging skin.
According to the work of nutritionists, these acids (linoleic acid, linolenic acid, etc.) are intracellular biological precursors of hormones and prostaglandins (fundamental regulatory different wireless systems, including all exchanges of membranous).
Unsaturated fatty acids work an essential role in preventing cardiovascular disease and omega 6 (as linoleic acid) is essential for the growth of the child.
Argan oil is rich in tocopherols: 700 mg / kg. The main representatives of this class of compounds founded in argan oil, is alpha-tocopherol or vitamin E (5%), the gamma-tocopherol (83%) and delta-tocopherol (12%) are natural antioxidants and vitamin precursors.
Polyphenols are identified caffeic and ferulic acid, having antiinflammatory properties inflammatory cytokines, antioxidant, antiseptic and is used to treat cancer of the stomach.
Ferulic acid, is the compound founded in higher proportion in the oil, and is used as an antihypertensive, thus favoring blood circulation, thereby increasing the arrival of nutrients. Stimulates intracellular oxygenation, neutralizes free radicals and protects tissues.
The delta-7-sterol are inhibitors of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, which converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), largely responsible for acne, hair loss and benign prostatic hypertrophy.
The lupeol has anticancer properties and enhances the proliferation of keratinocytes which produce keratin of hair, nails and skin.
To join these compounds with cells, argan oil has the squalene (present in 25% of human lipids), binding to the cell membrane, helping to eliminate toxins and deactivating free radicals
The oil application is valid in any area of the body so that the effect of "laying on hands" . Is therapeutic, especially if daily and harmoniously with the muscle you are working on. Prevents inflammation and burning after medical treatments or cosmetics. Good in pregnancy and prevents and treats stretch marks.
In heels and hands cracks restructuring the epithelium from the first application and returns the natural elasticity and smoothness. Its antioxidant and anticancer properties restore lipid layer of the skin, provides nutrients and oxygen to cells.
