Our Raw Organic Pine Nuts really do come from pine trees. Many people don't know that pine nuts are not actually nuts but are pine cone seeds. Pine nuts are great for snacking, homemade trail mixes, workout foods, in salads and added to your favorite cookie or brownie recipes. They're also good for you!
Our Organic Raw Pine Nuts are great and we're happy to offer them in large quantities at reasonable prices. Pine nuts are a great addition to any raw, blended or baked recipe. They have a unique, rich flavor that makes them popular.
The best thing about pine seeds is their concentration of monounsaturated fat, which may support a healthy cardiovascular system. In addition, they contain a fatty acid called pinolenic acid which was recently studied for its possible LDL lowering properties by enhancing LDL uptake by liver cells. Pine nut oil was tested in a double-blind controlled trial for its satiating effects. It concluded that pine nut oil's known action on CCK and GLP-1 release, may support the suppression of appetite.
Another study conducted on postmenopausal overweight women showed that the "prospective food intake" was 36% lower after consuming pine nut free fatty acids compared to the placebo. This study suggests that pine nut may work as an appetite suppressant through an increasing effect on satiety hormones and a reduced prospective food intake.
Siberian pine nut oil has been tested on ill patients with benign hypertension, going through basis hypotensive therapy. The patients consumed Siberian pine nut oil up to 17,5 g per day, and experienced a documented cholesterol-lessening effect, normalization of lipid spectrum of blood, systolic benign pressure and lessening of surplus body mass. Pine nuts are also a source of Vitamin D. Vitamin D may support stronger bones and teeth, sharpen vision and support a healthy immune response by possibly improving the body's ability to absorb calcium, and vitamins A and C.

- Possibly supports a balanced appetite and food intake
