How Emu Oil Works

First, the fatty acid properties of Emu Oil is very similar to that of humans. Several factors allow Emu Oil to penetrate the skin so effectively. Emu Oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids, omega-3, 6, and 9. In addition, the monounsaturated fatty acid, oleic acid (Omega 9) is the major fatty acid found in Emu Oil. Clinical research has shown that properly refined Emu Oil penetrates the skin even more effectively than oleic acid (Omega 9) by itself.

The benefits of the fatty acids found in Emu Oil are not limited to their deep penetrating ability. Oleic acid (Omega 9) is known to serve as a local anti-inflammatory. Additionally, linoleic acid (Omega 6), the second most abundant fatty acid in Emu Oil, has been shown to ease muscle and joint discomfort.

So, since oleic acid (Omega 9) is a great natural anti-inflammatory and emu oil penetrates the skin so well, the main active ingredients that makes emu oil so effective is oleic acid (Omega 9) and linolenic acid (Omega 3). This is a great application for arthritis pain.

Emu Oil Has Two Primary Characteristics That Make It So Effective

1). Emu Oil is a naturally powerful "transdermal carrier" which means that it penetrates the skin with great efficiency.

2). Secondly, it has natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, healing, moisturizing and non-comedogenic (will not clog pores) properties.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when the immune system begins to attack the body, causing a chronic inflammation of the joints.  In this disease, the thin membrane surrounding the joint becomes inflamed and swollen.  This in turn leads to inflammation of other parts of the affected joint.  Eventually the bones weaken and in severe cases the tissue may eventually be destroyed.  Rheumatoid arthritis can occur in any joint, but is most common in the small joints of the hands and feet, such as fingers and toes. 

The most common treatments for these diseases are NSAIDs, Nonsteroidal anti- inflammatory drugs.  NSAID's treat the symptoms, but do nothing to cure the disease.  They are useful in relieving discomfort, but research done at Stanford University's Department of Medicine indicates they may have long-term, negative impact on the patient. 

The most frequent and severe side effect is the gastric problems in the stomach and digestive system.  This results in more medication being used to relieve those symptoms.  A vicious circle ensues of ingesting NSAID's and then more medicine to combat the side effects of the NSAID's.

There are over a hundred different disorders that can affect the joint. The two most common are deteriorating joint disease, aka osteoarthritis, and inflamed joint disease, a-k-a rheumatoid arthritis. 

Osteoarthritis is a condition wherein the cartilage lining a joint begins to deteriorate, allowing the bones to rub together. Movement becomes painful and restricted, which in turn can result in the gradual wasting away of unused muscles. Osteoarthritis usually affects the larger, weight-bearing joints such as the hips, knees and spine, but can occur in other joints as well.
