Can This Oil Heal Your Gut?

Scientists have proven that oils made from certain highly nutritious seeds can confer remarkable—and even life-saving—health benefits to the individuals who use them.     Perhaps the most impressive story of the healing properties of seed oils is that of former Olympic gymnast Andreas Wecker. Less than a decade after winning a gold medal on the horizontal bar at the Atlanta Games in 1996, Wecker was caught in the terrible grip of Chron’s disease, an incurable and sometimes fatal digestive illness.  For Andreas, the deadly effects of Crohn’s seemed all but inevitable.     When Andreas was hospitalized in 2005 after a fainting spell, he weighed a mere 84 pounds and had lost 80% of his blood volume.  His doctors had to perform 8 blood transfusions to save his life.  They informed him that it if his conditions did not improve—and fast—they would have to remove the majority of his intestines to keep him alive.     Fortunately, fate intervened to spare Andreas from this gruesome surgery.  The miracle began when a friend visited Wecker at the hospital and told him about the curative powers of seed oils.  His friend advised him to put off the radical intestine-removing surgery (the only option offered by conventional medicine), and buy a seed oil press instead.Wecker was desperate, and willing to try anything to avoid the surgery, even if it meant just treading water and not getting worse.  But in reality, his health turnaround was far, far better than he could have imagined. Within weeks of checking himself out of the hospital and embarking on his fresh-pressed seed oil regime, he was able to stop taking all other medications.  For the first time in his life, thanks to the vital nutrients in the seeds, his body was flooded pure… restorative… enriching fuel.The Shocking Truth About Store-Bought Seed OilsIf you have already tried seed oils and experienced disappointing results, you may find Andreas’s story difficult to accept.  But the problem is not with his story, but instead with the store-bought oils you most likely purchased.  The shocking fact is that almost every kind of seed oil available for purchase in retail stores and online contains micronutrients so severely damaged they may actually have a negative effect on your health.     You need not press all of your own seed oils, as Andreas did.  However, it is essential that you know the basics of what makes a quality seed oil, and what makes a rancid one.  First, let me explain the science behind how seed oils transform your body’s health from the inside out.Seeds: The Bursting with Life-Giving, Scientifically Proven NourishmentAlthough seeds have been prized for centuries for their delicious and flavor-enhancing properties in cooling, the real reason seeds became a nutritional staple can be found be answering this question: What, exactly, is a seed?     Seeds are the equivalent of a plant’s “eggs”—bursting with the life-giving nourishment necessary to foster new plant growth.  When you ingest seeds, the wealth of nutrients contained inside their shells can powerfully impact your wellbeing.     Scientific research has validated numerous health benefits for different kinds of seeds.  For instance, extracts and oils made from pumpkin seeds, also called pepitas, have been used to treat conditions such as…

  •   High cholesterol
  •   Kidney stones
  •   Heart disease
  •   Cancer

Reports indicate pumpkin seed oil can reduce your risk of stroke as well as decrease inflammation, a precursor for more serious diseases.     Another potent anti-inflammatory is coriander oil, made from the seeds of an herb native to Asia and parts of Europe.  The tart flavor of the seeds makes them a popular addition to curries and pickles, however it is their antioxidant… anti-bacterial… and anti-fungal properties that are help boost the function of your liver, spleen, pancreas, and digestive system.     Sesame seeds also protect and support your internal organs, namely the liver and the kidneys.  Testing reveals the seeds contain sesamin and sesamolin, two unique varieties of lignans, substances known to reduce cholesterol and prevent high blood pressure, among other beneficial outcomes.  Along with lignans, sesame seeds are a superb source of an astonishing quantity of nutrients including Maganese, Copper, Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Phosphorous, Zinc, Vitamin B1, Calcium and Vitamin E.

Of course, no list of super seed oils would be complete without a mention of flax seeds.  A famous source of omega-3 fatty acids, each tablespoon of flaxseed oil contains 8 grams of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), making it the richest source of ALA in the standard North American diet.  This popular oil has a multitude of benefits, from providing a metabolic boost… to facilitating the growth of healthy hair and nails… to relieving the discomfort of colitis sufferers.Even sunflower seeds, best known as a snack frequently found near the register of your local convenience store, can have significant medicinal uses.  A primary use for the seeds is maintenance and improvement of cardiovascular health.  The oil is also popular for its remarkable effects on the health and appearance of your skin.

Seeds vs. Seed Oils
     To attain the remarkable health benefits that Andreas achieved in reversing his Crohn’s disease, seeds themselves are not enough, in part due to the massive quantity of seeds you would need to consume in order to attain the needed levels of nutrients.  This is why Andreas used seed oils.  When you extract oil from a seed, that oil contains a concentrated amount of the seed’s life-giving nourishment.

A “Pressing” Problem that Leads to Toxic Seed OilsThe most serious dilemma seed oil manufacturers face—and the reason most store-bought oils are worthless—is the problem of how to release the oil from the seeds without compromising the crucial nutrients the seeds contain.     Conventional extraction methods actually damage the oil components so extensively that they must always be refrigerated.   When over-processed oils are kept at room temperature, they turn rancid, which drastically limits the body’s ability to absorb and utilize seed oils.  Of course, it’s impossible to know, as a consumer, whether an oil that you purchase has been carefully refrigerated throughout its life span, including shipping and storage.  Too often, manufacturers cut corners, and the oil is rancid before you even bring it home.

The 3 Main Methods for Extracting Oils from Seeds

  1. Hydraulic press (the most common)
  2. “Cold-expeller” press (slightly preferable but still flawed)
  3. Solvent extraction (which corrupts the seeds completely)

     As noted above, some truly corrupt companies use chemical solvents commonly found in gasoline to extract oil from seeds.  But even the so-called “best option,” cold-pressing, extensively compromises the quality of the nutrients because of the mechanical grinding and friction required to draw them out.  The bottom line is this—none of the technologies used by mainstream manufacturers produce undamaged oils.Better Health Takes a Fraction of a SecondBotox     To generate 100% potent and nutritionally intact oil, the nutrients need to be extracted in a fraction of a second.  In order to make the health-giving benefits of seed oil—which saved his life—available to the public, Andreas Wecker developed and perfected technology to accomplish just that. his body was flooded pure… restorative… enriching fuel. and the only to contain pure, uncorrupted lipids capable of providing health-saving benefits. To learn more about his revolutionary extraction process, and the remarkable and fully bioavailable oil it yields, click here.Sincerely,IanClarkIan ClarkOwner and CEO Activation Products
