        Kiwi seed oil, Kiwifruit oil, Actinidia Chinesnsis Planch

         

        Introduction:

        The Kiwi Seed contains over 60% of the very nutritionally important Essential Fatty Acid (EFA), Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), an essential Omega 3 fatty acid that is normally found in much lower concentrations in some other seeds such as Flax Seed or must be extracted from Fish Oils. The body naturally converts between 2% and 10% of the ALA into eicosapentanoeic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The body also uses the EFAs contained in Kiwi Seed Oil to help maintain the proper wall flexibility of cells and restore the proper cholesterol /triglyceride ratio. This keeps our cell membranes soft and pliable, facilitating receptors in the membrane to work to bring vital compounds to regulate the cell and to provide easy entry for oxygen and nutrients and an efficient exit for carbon dioxide and wastes.

        Kiwii Fruit Oil is loaded with omega-3 essential fatty acid, α-Linolenic Acid,similar to that of Perilla Seed Oil.In addition,Kiwi Fruit Oil was found to contain naturally occurring amount of tocotrienols&t tocopherol.Hence,Kiwi Fruit Oil is suitable to be incorporate into food and cosmetics applications.

        ALAhelps to maintain moisture in the skin and hair and prevent drying and scaling. Classic anti aging product and an important dermatitis formulation ingredient.

        Functional Food Applications : Kiwi Seed Oil is an ideal example of a truly functional food, providing a natural source of energy. In addition to conversion into EPA and DHA the EFAs in Kiwi Seed Oil are what your body needs to help emulsify and absorb the fat soluble vitamins, A, D, E, & K as well as conversion of Linoleic acid into arachidonic acid. This helps to maintain resilience and lubrication of all cells and combine with protein and cholesterol to form living membranes that hold the body cells together.
