Argan Oil is filled with super nutrients. Schottenol, which exhibits anti-carcinogenic potential, and spinasterol which is thought to be anti-tumorigenic and can also help reduce cholesterol.
Argan Oil has twice the amount of vitamin E as olive oil, making it a powerful antioxidant which helps prevent cell destroying free-radicals. It has high levels of fatty acids omega 6 and 9, which help with brain and immune system functioning as well as blood pressure regulation.
Polyphenols make this oil anti-inflammatory, carotenes and ferulic acid (the most abundant phenolic compound found in argan oil) helps prevent damage from ultraviolet light and another nutrient squalene attaches itself to cell membranes in order to help repair damage. It is believed that the sterols contained in Argan oil are relatively rare in their combination among vegetable oils, as there are no other vegetable oils with a comparable composition.
