MACADAMIA NUT OIL
Organic Macadamia Nut Oil Excipient
We harness a legendary therapeutic oil and use cold-pressed organic Macadamia Nut Oil as excipient. With its exquisite aroma and flavor, it also gives our hemp oils superb absorbability and stability, while keeping them primarily fluid if refrigerated.
Macadamia Nut Oil also provides one of Nature’s optimal fatty acid profiles dominated by healthful monounsaturates:
- Oleic Acid – C18:1 Omega-9 MUFA (> 50%)
Famous MUFA that is likewise the primary fatty acid in olive oil.
- Palmitoleic Acid – C16:1 Omega-7 MUFA (> 15%)
Rare in most plant oils , this MUFA is prevalent in macadamia nuts and in human fatty tissues .
The primary fatty acids in Cannacea oils are the primary fatty acids in human depot fat (oleic, palmitic, palmitoleic, linoleic, stearic & myristic acids) [CoAs, 11]. We are studying if the unique fatty acid profile of our formulations is causing their significantly enhanced absorbability compared with typical oils [IP].
