Pine Nut Oil – A Potent Appetite Suppressant
The use of pine nuts and pine nut oil dates back to Greek and Roman times. They have a long history of modulating appetite and boosting energy. The oil contains a unique fatty acid called pinolenic acid, a cousin of the essential fatty acid known as GLA. Pine nut oil is the only known food with a high amount of this unique fatty acid.

A recent study has now shown how pine nut oil works. The pinolenic acid naturally raises several signals to the brain that help a person not feel hungry (cholecystokinin-CCK and glucagon-like peptide 1 -GLP1). These signals were elevated by 60% for four hours by taking 3 grams of the oil.

Helping individuals feel more satisfied on less food is critical to maintaining a healthy weight management plan and training oneself to eat smaller portions. It is also great news for the holidays, a key time of the year individuals tend to pack on the pounds with out-of-control indulgence.

Pine Nut Oil can be taken before any meal to help balance appetite signals and the full feeling. It can also just be used a half-hour or more prior to your largest meal of the day. It is interesting that Pine Nut Oil also gives a boost of energy, making it a great afternoon supplement to help get through the day and not arrive home for dinner ravenously hungry (and likely to overeat).
