The health benefits to consuming clary sage seeds oil

Clary sage seeds – a unique Omega-3 source

A rare type of oil extracted from Clary sage (Salvia Sclarea), one of some 2,400 types of sage, was discovered after a 7-year research conducted at the Volcani Institute by a team of researchers headed by Dr. Nativ Dudai.

The plant, which used to grow wild in the Land of Israel for thousands of years, is now extinct, but its seeds are kept in the Institute’s seed bank. Its qualities have not been studied until the current research took place. The State of Israel (through the Ministry of Agriculture) registered an international patent on the most active ingredient of Omega-3 in nature.

As is commonly known, Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for the human body and recommended by physicians for general consumption. The Omega-3 has become a major topic of discussion and study in hospitals as physicians are amazed by the results it produces, testing patients before and after consuming clary sage oil.

Below are some of its major benefits:

1. Clary sage is the world’s most stable natural source of Omega-3. In comparison, flax oil is oxidized in 20 minutes at room temperature, while clary sage oil remains intact under similar conditions for 2 years.

2. Clary sage contains ALA, the vegetarian Omega-3, which is the core substance of the marine Omega-3 (DHA and EPA). Thus, people who consume clary sage seed oil feed their bodies with the three types of Omega-3 that the body needs.

3. Omega-3 is essential for the development of foetuses’ brains, and ALA is the only kind of Omega-3 that is supplied to foetuses through the umbilical cord in significant quantities.

4. ALA is the only kind of Omega-3 that remains in substantive quantities in mother’s milk. Baby formulas are required to contain Omega-3 of the ALA, not the marine type.

5. DHA is essential for the brain’s performance. Only as little as 3-5% of the ALA is converted to DHA in the body. This datum should be measured against the fact that DHA stays alive and active in the human brain for 5 years, but even if high quantities of DHA are consumed, only some 3.8mg are assimilated daily in the brain. Thus, despite the ALA’s low conversion ratio to DHA, clary sage seeds provide more than enough DHA for the brain’s functions.

6. Clary sage seeds oil does not contain heavy metals such as mercury and cadmium (which accumulate in the body and are very toxic), while fish contain plenty of mercury in their bodies (and even though Omega-3 food additives are cleansed of heavy metals, they are never 100% pure, while clary sage seeds are).

7. Clary sage seeds oil does not contain toxins such as PCB and kerosene oil residue, which are found in most high-quality Omega-3 additives that are produced from fish.

8. Omega-3 additives from fish are distilled at high temperatures, which detract from its efficacy. Clary sage seeds oil is produced only in a Cold Press procedure.

9. Omega-3 additives from fish tend to thin the blood, and thus people treated with blood thinning medications, such as aspirin, can consume only limited quantities of Omega-3 since this might cause profuse bleeding. Patients who take Coumadin, Clopidogrel, and so on may not consume Omega-3 additives from fish at all, though fish oil does help in blood vessels and heart diseases. Clary sage seeds oil does not thin the blood and thus can be consumed by heart patients or those consume blood thinning medications (and need Omega-3 more than anybody else).

10. Flax seeds are viewed as laxatives and are not digested well, while ground flax seeds and their oil oxygenate easily both inside and outside the body (by heat and free radicals), become less effective, and might even damage our health. Additionally, the consumption of flax seeds for more than three consecutive months is not recommended.

11. Flax seeds contain cyanides that are rather toxic, while clary sage seeds oil does not contain such substances.

12. Fish and flax contain allergens and people are sensitive to them. Clary sage seeds oil contains no allergens whatsoever.

13. Unlike Omega-3 additives from fish, clary sage seeds oil is good for vegans who do not consume fish products at all.

14. Clary sage seeds oil is the most concentrated source of phytosterols – molecules that lower the level LDL (negative cholesterol) in the blood; it actually contains nine different types of phytosterols at synergetic and active concentrations.

15. While clary sage seeds oil contains more than 50% Omega-3 in volume, another 25% comprises of Omega-9 (the active ingredient in olive oil) that benefits memory, as well as 124 other substances that have rare and healthy impact, which was scientifically proven.

16. Additionally, clary sage seeds oil contains natural Q10 coenzyme, a powerful antioxidant that essential for the proper performance of the cardiac muscle.

17. Clary sage seeds oil also contains sclareol – a very rare and powerful antioxidant that makes certain carcinogenic cells and parasites self-destroy.

18. Clary sage seeds oil also contains all four types of vitamin E (the four isomers, including isomer delta, that is very rare in nature).

19. Being produced from an herb, clary sage seeds oil contains numerous anti-oxidants, and powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal substances that provide the oil with rare stability and a wide range of health benefits.

20. Western nutrition is typically rich in Omega-6, when compared with Omega-3. In clary sage seeds oil, the ratio between the two is 3:1 in favor of Omega-3, which helps improving and balancing faulty Western diets, as well as preventing and healing the damages of diseases.

21. Clary sage seeds oil is perfectly safe for all age groups, and is even recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

22. Clary sage seeds oil has a nice and gentle taste, unlike fish oil that smells and tastes bad.

23. The production of Omega-3 from fish, as well as fish consumption in general, has a negative ecological impact. While tuna fish are in danger of extinction, salmons are grown in extremely overcrowded beach cages. Typically, there are some 20,000 fish in each such cage, and it is filled with fish excrement. In addition, the caged fish are fed industrial and unnatural foods. Omega-3 produced from clary sage seeds oil does not impact on the ecology, nor threatens marine life with extinction.

24. Fish consumption is known to impact on PH levels in the body, thus creating “light, chronic metabolic acidity,” which impacts on proper body functions, which leads to bone atrophy, weakens the immune system, encourages parasites and cancer development, and weakens the cells which, in turn, suffer from faulty absorption of nutrients and delayed waste secretion, and so on.

25. Being the most stable source of Omega-3 in nature discovered so far, clary sage seeds oil is a particularly strong anti-inflammatory agent and thus substantially improves the condition of people who suffer from diseases with an inflammatory component (almost all diseases do), chronic cold, sinusitis, arthritis, skin diseases, lupus, fibromyalgia, asthma, and more.

26. Prof Michael Crawfod (father of the DHA theory and director of the London Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition) claims that EPA in large quantities is toxic. The consumption of the recommended dosages of fish provides the body with much, perhaps even too much EPA. The consumption of vegetarian Omega-3 guarantees that only the quantities that the body needs are converted from ALA to EPA and DHA. Crawford recommended using the Omega-3 from the new Israel source: clary sage seed oil cold press.
