Benefits of Palm Oil
“High Antioxidant Content”
Also called palm fruit oil, palm oil comes from the fruit of Elaeis guineensis, the oil palm tree. Although most other types of vegetable oils come from the seed or kernel of the various fruits, palm oil is extracted from the fleshy pulp or mesocarp of the oil palm fruit. Unrefined palm oil possesses a rich, reddish-orange color and a variety of potential health benefits.
According to the American Palm Oil Council, palm oil serves as the richest natural source of tocotrienols, which are members of the vitamin E family of antioxidants. Another antioxidant present in palm oil is vitamin A, in the form of beta-carotene. According to the Malaysia Palm Oil Council, unrefined palm oil contains 15 times more carotenoids than carrots. These antioxidants may protect your body from free--radicals, molecules that damage your body's cells and could contribute to an increased risk of various health problems.
If you have dry-skin or dread the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, you might consider using palm oil to improve or forestall skin woes, palm oil serves an as emollient when applied topically, soothing and moisturizing harsh or damaged skin. You can also use it to promote healing of burns and cuts, an effect due in large part to the oil's high vitamin E content. Apply palm oil up to three times daily for maximum benefit; consider sticking with white palm oil to avoid possible staining to your skin and clothing that could arise when using unrefined red palm oil.
