Without further ado, here are some of our amazing before & afters, and the science behind the case:

Before and After using Emu Spirit | The science behind the case

The case: Emu oil has been used here to treat burns and other wounds, helping to reduce inflammation, scarring and soothe skin irritation.

The science: Researchers from the Southern Medical University of China discovered that topical applications of emu oil could reduce inflammation in scald wounds. The results are promising; emu oil aided in reducing scar formation in healed burn wounds, and was found effective when applied even 1-3 days after the injury!

The case: This is a before and after comparison after applying Oil of Emu on the scalp daily. We can see some excellent results as the hair is growing back thicker at the crown of the head!

The science: A study from Dermatology at Boston University School of Medicine researched the factors that stimulate and inhibit skin and hair growth using emu oil and corn oil as a comparison. Results showed there was about a 20% increase in DNA synthesis, which means that there was a 20% increase in the growth activity of the skin that received (a processed emu oil), compared to those that received corn oil.

Before and After using Emu Spirit | The science behind the case

The case: This shows just how quickly Emu Spirit can work its healing magic. After applying Oil of Emu on a skin burn as a result of our customer accidentally grabbing a searing hot cooking pan. This resulted in sore, swollen and blistered skin – ouch! Immediately, she applied Emu Oil over the cooking burn area of the skin, and saw immediate results over 24 hours.

The science: Emu oil is rich in antioxidants such as Vitamins A, D and E, Vitamin K2, essential fatty acids, linoleic acid, palmitic acid and oleic acid. It’s incredibly nourishing for your skin because it is naturally rich in collagen, nutrients and healthy fats, which makes emu oil regenerative in nature.

The case: This is “swell” example of Emu Oil’s effectiveness in treating a seriously swollen knee. Our customer used Emu Spirit Muscular and Arthritic Rub daily and saw a significant reduction in the swelling. By utilizing the superior unique penetrative and anti-inflammatory properties of emu oil, the swelling (e.g. the inflammation) had drastically decreased.

The science: A research conducted by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation, Australian Government shows that emu oil has an effect on inflammation in human cells. The suppression of these pro-inflammatory cytokines is consistent with a study using a mouse model of inflammation, which reported a decrease in both IL-1α and TNF-α following topical application of emu oil (Yoganathan et al. 2003). They also reported that the decrease in these pro-inflammatory cytokines was associated with a decrease in inflammation.

Before and After using Emu Spirit | The science behind the case

The case: This is a classic example of when we need to seek natural remedies when all else fails. This customer experienced a bug bite that turned into a rash. Several steroid-based topical treatments didn’t help, however rubbing Oil of Emu twice daily on the inner elbow shows a noticeable reduction in redness, itchiness and skin dryness after 4 days of use.

The science: According to Dr. Leigh Hopkins, Pharm. D. in the US all cells produce hormones which are coming from these fatty acids. These hormones affect all aspects of the activities of a specific cell. They play a role in inflammations, the healing process and the dying of a cell. If you don’t consume sufficient of these “good” fatty acids, your body cannot work efficiently. The oil supplies through its essential fatty acids the need to have the cells function normal. If you see the skin as the largest cell wall there is, you can say that a dry, raw skin is a sign of a lack of essential fatty acids.

Here are some of our favourite testimonials:

“After my knee surgery I started taking Emu Spirit Omega 369 capsules and applying the Emu Spirit Oil of Emu topically. I found that after the first ten days, there was a significant reduction in the swelling of my knee. By the end of the third week, my knee showed no sign of swelling for the first time in many years. On my three month follow up with my surgeon, I no longer had swelling and fluid in my knee and much to their surprise, I was no longer limping.” – Gary A.
