Onagre vegetable oil
Origin of vegetable oil of ostrich
Originally from North America, the ostrich (Oenothera biennis) is a biannual wild plant with erect stem from 0.440 to 1.50 m that usually grows on well drained soil. The name of anointed was given by the botanist Pitton de Tournefort because of the likeness of his leaves with the ears of the donkeys, hence his nickname "the grass to the donkeys". This plant was introduced in Europe in the 1600s where it was implanted without problems. We can find, during ballads, various species of oengres (evening bonus) or in urban areas the "redish sepal wave" variety. From June to September, the grove bears large sulphur yellow flowers that will give fruit from 2 to 3 cm. At the end of the summer, when the plant dries, we can recover small black seeds or let it dry on its own.
Before being known in Europe, the Amerindians consumed the root and seeds of the ostracian to feed and used the plant in infusion in hot water to treat injuries, bruises, skin problems and other indispositions.
Production of organic iongrass vegetable oil
Like all organic vegetable oils of quality, the manufacture of ostrich oil will have to follow a rigorous process:
- Seeds must have been grown in organic farming, stored away from heat and dried to air or with a temperature below 40°C.
Careful, the oxidative vegetable oil oxidizes fairly quickly, it is advisable to keep it safe from air, light and heat.
Composition of the vegetable oil of ostrich
In this oil, mainly two polyunsaturated fatty acids:linoleic acid (70%) that is the essential fatty acid precursor of the omega-6 series and gamma-linoleic (10%) found in the literature under the name GLA or AGL.
The ostracian oil also contains, but in much smaller quantities, polyphenols, palmitic acid, triterpenic acid esters, amino acids, vitamin C, fibers and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper, boron, iron, zinc, calcium and phosphorus.
All of these components confer remarkable properties to ionate oil, both internal and external.
LAG is an essential fatty acid that must be imported since our body cannot synthesize it. AML participates in the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system, brain, hormone system. It intervenes on epidermis cells and contributes to naturally reducing inflammation and skin redness.
In the current oils of the trade, the GLA is found in the oils of drunk (24%), blackcurrants (18%) and oyster (10%).
