OMEGA 6 - Cold Pressed Sunflower Oil

 


A Natural polyunsaturated oil, cold pressed below 38 °C, has not been damaged by heat or chemical extraction to retain the nutritional value of the sunflower seed.

It is a fairly unstable oil, not suitable as a cooking oil.

The most important essential fatty acids are the Omega 6 group.

 

 



NUTRITIONAL PROFILE:

Linoleic acid from cold pressed Sunflower Oil is converted into a variety of Omega 6 fatty acids, namely:
Linoleic Acid (LA)
Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA)
Arachidonic Acid (AA)

 

 


FATTY ACID PROFILE:

Linoleic (Omega 6) 65%
Oleic (Omega 9) 23%
Saturated (Palmitic) 12%

 

 


MILLBROOK sunflower oil is available in 250ml and 500ml white fluorinated, opaque plastic bottles and 500ml glass, amber bottles. The oil is as fresh as the day it was cold pressed. A best by date is stamped on each product to ensure freshness.

 

 


THE NUTRITIONAL USE OF MILLBROOK COLD PRESSED SUNFLOWER OIL


Can be added to cooked food. Toss with stir fried vegetables and pasta, etc. Can be used in salad dressings. Using Millbrook Sunflower Oil in this way provides us with an important source of the Omega 6 essential fatty acids.
One must also remember that a healthy body will produce GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) from this Omega 6 EFA. This is definitely the best route to obtain a GLA source as the body will then make its own GLA on demand, in the right quantities, at the right time. This is far preferable to the supplementing of GLA using specific GLA sources such as Evening Primrose Oil, Borage. Etc.


 

 


Omega 6 deficiencies:
• Dry skin and hair (hair loss)
• Dry eyes
• Wounds fail to heal
• Glands become dry
• Growth retardation
• Heart beat abnormalities
• Male sterility, female miscarriages
• Kidney malfunctions
• PMS
An adequate amount of a good Omega 6 source will positively improve the above problems.

 

 


Improves:

• the immune system
• metabolism (weight management)
• energy and stamina levels

 

 


THE BALANCE

Our modern day diet contains too much of the wrong type of Omega 6 (in the form of fried foods, pastries and margarines). The correct ratio of natural EFA intake of Omega 3:6:9 should be in the region of 2:5:1. Therefore always be aware of supplementing the diet with Omega 3 (flaxseed/fish oil), omega 6 (sunflower or sesame oil) and Omega 9 (olive or sesame oil).  Correct enzymes are needed to complete the metabolic pathways of the EFAs.  A healthy body will convert GLA from Omega 6.  This is the preferred route of obtaining the GLA requirements.
