PRIMAL OIL contains pure lab-tested organic extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) and 2 powerful antioxidant oils—organic black cumin seed and sacha inchi. EVOO is a well-known monounsaturated fat (omega-9) loaded with plant antioxidants called polyphenols and vitamin E compounds called tocopherols.
The use of black cumin seed oil (nigella sativa), a favorite in Asia and the Middle East for millennia, was found in King Tut’s tomb in ancient Egypt. Cleopatra reportedly used black cumin seed oil to maintain her beautiful hair and skin, and Hippocrates prescribed it for digestive problems. Currently there are over 600 research studies showing the positive effects of this ancient oil including relief from allergies and asthma, eczema and psoriasis, gas and bloating, candida overgrowth, and supporting a healthy heart and immune system.
Sacha inchi oil, from the tropical fruit of the Plukenetia volubilis tree native to South American and the Caribbean, has been consumed as a superfood for over 3000 years in the Amazon rainforest. These seeds are rich in the omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid (comparable to flax seed oil), protein, tocopherols, and carotenoids. This seed oil additionally contains a significant amount of tryptophan—the precursor to serotonin that bestows a feeling of wellbeing in the body and helps regulate appetite and reduce food cravings.
This excellent organic superfood combination oil can be taken orally, sprinkled over freshly ground gluten-free sourdough bread, made into dips, or drizzled over salads. Incidentally, the gentle “bite” the black cumin seed oil contains makes added vinegar in salad dressings unnecessary for many people.
