Don’t confuse Siberian pine nuts with the pine nuts you buy as an ingredient for making your own basil pesto! They are quite different and come from different varieties of pine trees (Pinus pinea or Pinus koraiensis).
Unlike other pine trees, Siberian pine trees (Pinus sibirica) only produce pine nuts after 60 years. Thereafter, they produce nuts every 1-2 years (12 kg per tree) making Siberian pine nuts one of the most exclusive specialty nuts on the market.
The really special ingredient is Pinolenic acid, which is found in high concentrations in Siberian Pine Nut oil. It’s been extensively researched and shown to aid in digestion, balancing out the stomach environment, preventing food from fermenting in the digestive tract.
As a result, it provides effective relief for bloating, pain, reflux and other stomach problems. This is because Pinolenic acid stimulates the release of cholecystokinin (CCK) a hormone fundamental to digestion, secreted by cells in the duodenum which stimulate the release of bile into the intestine and the secretion of enzymes by the pancreas.
Studies have shown that Pinolenic acid boosts the release of CCK by 60%.
CCK helps the body to:
In addition, CCK stimulates the digestion of fat and protein and regulates the speed of digestion which plays a key role in effective digestion in the small intestine.
As this is a completely natural product, it’s FREE of any negative side effects, unlike those related to antacids. The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY™ Siberian Pine Nut Oil has a whole range of positive benefits apart from its good effect on digestion. These include: dramatically improving skin complexion and problem skin conditions, helping to lower cholesterol and benign hypertension, naturally boosting energy, the immune system and improving metabolism and weight control. Overall, it promotes support and maintains digestive balance, health and vitality!
I have been taking The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY™ Siberian Pine Nut Oil for the last six months and have found it very helpful in easing the discomfort after meals that I had been suffering. Having had a lot of issues through menopause and having gone through the trial and error process of eliminating first gluten, and then dairy from my diet I found I was keeping much better health. The downside seemed to be a lowered immune system. After a severe stomach virus I found I was still having a lot of discomfort after meals. My new dentist who is also gluten intolerant and taking this product, recommended I take the oil which improved my wellbeing dramatically. Within the first few days I noticed the difference and since then I have found my immune system has improved as well. If you have issues with your body processing food after meals I certainly recommend this product. I won’t be leaving home without it.Sue, Waitakere
