Every year 40,000 Americans
undergo peptic ulcer surgery, and 15,000 die from ulcer-related
complications. It does not have to be this way!
Peptic ulcers affect
about 5 million Americans each year, and more than 40,000
people annually have ulcer-related surgery. More often than
not, ulcers occur as a result of an inflammation of the stomach
lining called gastritis (when it is the duodenum that gets
inflamed, the condition is called duodenitis). Each year,
approximately 15,000 people in the US die of ulcer-related
complications, the worst of which are an internal bleeding
and a phenomenon called perforation. A perforation occurs
when an ulcer eats a hole in the wall of the stomach or duodenum,
releasing bacteria and partially digested food through the
opening into the sterile abdominal cavity and causing peritonitis
- an inflammation of the abdominal cavity and wall.
In analyzing the factors thought to contribute
to the formation of peptic ulcers and gastritis, many researchers
have stumbled across a rather striking "coincidence".
It turned out that all the known risk factors for erosive/ulcerative
gastric and duodenal disorders – such as smoking, excess alcohol
consumption, physical and emotional stress, and unhealthy
eating habits – deplete the natural antioxidant defenses of
our body and cause a free radical
overload. Even the much discussed Helicobacter pylori
bacteria, once thought to be the main cause of peptic ulcers
but now considered by many scientists to be merely a contributing
factor to their formation, exacerbates the free radical overload
by producing an enzyme called urease, the action of which
eventually leads to the release of more free radicals, causing
damage to the epithelium. As a result, the gentle, fragile
mucosal lining of the stomach and the duodenum becomes one
of the first tissues to suffer from the damaging chain reactions
induced by free radicals. Many scientists who have come across
this striking fact in the course of their ulcer and gastritis
research think that this is exactly the area where the real
answers and solutions to the ulcers/gastritis/GERD problem
are to be found.
Extra virgin pine nut oil: a time-tested
natural remedy with a proven track record of healing peptic
ulcers, gastritis, GERD and IBS without antibiotics or antacids
Extra virgin pine nut oil is an outstanding
concentrate of powerful free radical
scavengers fully capable of preventing or reversing
even the strongest oxidative stress leading to gastritis and
peptic ulcers. The effectiveness of extra virgin pine nut
oil in peptic ulcer and gastritis treatment was specifically
established in several clinical studies conducted in Russia
and China. In those countries, as well as in Eastern Europe,
extra virgin Siberian pine nut oil has now officially been
approved as an effective peptic ulcer and gastritis remedy.
As more reseach into the unique properties of this healing
oil is being conducted worldwide, one rock-solid fact is confirmed
again and again: extra virgin pine nut oil is an effective,
time-tested and proven natural ulcer, gastritis, acid reflux,
and IBS remedy.
Life has never been so sweet, and
no more pain in my stomach! (A letter from a very satisfied
Life is sweet again, thanks to your extra virgin
Siberian pine nut oil!
I've been diagnosed with H. Pylori
three times, this last time was the worst as I let it go not
knowing what was wrong with me and hoping the pain would go
away on its own. The pain I had was unbearable. I thought
that I was going to die, it felt like I had gremlins in my
stomach tearing it apart.
My doctor had me do a stool test and that's
when they realized that I had H. Pylori again. They
put me on this new antibiotic for the H. Pylori,
my pharmacist was amazed by what my specialist had prescribed
for me, it was something new and much heavier stuff. I was
scared, terrified if it came back again, what they would have
to do next to get rid of it. I decided to do some research
on H. Pylori and read about Siberian pine nut oil.
I decided to try it, and I'm so glad I did.
I noticed a difference right away in my stomach,
I take it faithfully 3 times a day and I think it tastes good
too, no reactions at all, and my gastritis is 100% better.
Life has never been so sweet and no more pain in my stomach.
I would like to say a very special "Thank
you" to all the folks at Siberian Tiger Naturals for
helping so many people, especially Jennifer for being so professional
and courteous each time I called to ask her new questions.
This may be a life long friendship, and well worth it!
Thank you again so much!

Health crisis in America: "fat-free"
approach did not work. What works is the "right fats" approach!
A new epidemic of truly frightening proportions
has taken over the United States. According to the U.S. Government
data, an estimated 129.6 million of Americans, or 64 percent,
are overweight or obese. A new study released by the Department
of Health and Human resources (HHS) Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention shows that deaths due to poor diet and physical
inactivity rose by 33 percent over the past decade and may
soon overtake tobacco as the leading preventable cause of
death in America. Despite several decades of intense efforts
to lower the incidence of obesity and promote weight loss
through lowering the amounts of fat and cholesterol in our
diets, obesity in America is still on the rise. Every now
and then, a new "miracle" product or diet promises to solve
the obesity crisis, but eventually all of them fail.
The underlying reason for this failure is a
lack of understanding of the vital physiological processes
behind eating, metabolism and weight management. We cannot
win the battle against obesity and disrupted metabolism by
ignoring the basic principles which form the foundation of
how food is perceived and utilized by our bodies. Therefore,
any product designed to "force" or "coerce" our bodies into
losing weight (and a vast majority of them try to do just
that) is doomed to fail.
The only way to optimize metabolism and achieve
vibrant health is to enhance the ability of our bodies to
assimilate the nutrients that we need, unlocking its inherent
potential to promote healing and maintain itself in perfect
Adelle Davis, one of the pioneers of the movement towards
healthier eating, once said: "As I see it, every day you do
one of two things: build health or produce disease in yourself."
Thus, when we try to "outwit" our own body
by denying it the nutrients it needs (which is the case with
macronutrient-restricting low-fat and low-carb diets) or poisoning
it with artificial chemicals with harmful side effects, we
are doing nothing more than "producing disease" in ourselves.
On the contrary, when we help our bodies to unlock their true
self-healing and health-building potential, they naturally
come back to their perfect balance of vibrant health. What's
very important to understand is that this potential cannot
be activated by staying away from all fats. On the contrary,
health-promoting fats (as opposed to harmful synthetic fats
found in processed foods) are the very keys needed to unlock
this self-healing potential of our bodies and put it to maximum
nutrient-dense oils: Nature's secret recipe for fitness, health
Our bodies are designed to be lean and beautiful,
not heavy and slow. If allowed to work without impediment
in an ideal environment, they will naturally seek to regain
this healthy balance. However, in our society, dominated as
it is by fast food, sedentary lifestyles, and "comfort eating",
bringing back this harmonious balance and achieving the ideal
health and optimum digestion is often very difficult. We need
all the help we can get in order to optimize our food intake,
boost our metabolism and digestion, and provide our perfectly
designed bodies with all the essential nutrients they need
to function to their fullest potential.
When we try to describe a perfectly functioning
system, we often refer to it as a "well-oiled machine". This
metaphor gives us the key to understanding one of the most
important underlying principles of natural healing and healthy
metabolism. To be able to achieve healing and
reach its optimum state, our body must be WELL-OILED. By that,
we mean that it must be supplied with the right fats. Not
only are these "good fats" essential for healthy
metabolism, but they are also vital for maintaining wellness
as well as for curing and preventing chronic disease such
as peptic ulcers, gastritis, GERD, and IBS.
Long gone are the days when we believed that
all fats are bad for us. By now, we know perfectly well that
instead of trying to eliminate all fats from our diet or indiscriminately
reduce their consumption, we must instead concentrate on supplying
our bodies with the right fats which they need to function
properly. Yes, we must keep them well-oiled! Rather that denying
these perfectly designed "machines" the very "lubrication"
that they desperately need, we must supply them with the best-grade
"performance boosters" we may find.
Extra virgin pine nut oil is not just
an effective gastrointestinal remedy, but also a powerful
metabolism enhancer and an excellent overall health booster
In addition to being a uniquely potent antioxidant
supplement and gastric lining healer, extra virgin pine nut
oil also is an excellent natural metabolism booster and digestive
aid. When ingested - either in its pure form or as part of
delicious foods - this tasty
oil stimulates abundant duodenal release of cholecystokinin
(CCK) - a
critical catalyst for proper digestion of food in the intestinal
By ensuring the availability of bile salts and
enzymes to properly break down large macromolecules (proteins,
polysaccharides, and triglycerides) into small molecules (amino
acids, monosaccharides, and fatty acids) used by our bodies
as all-important “building blocks”, CCK further enhances the
overall performance of our metabolic and digestive systems.
This puts an end to nutrient deficiencies. As a result, our
body is able to assimilate more vital nutrients from the food
CCK is a substance naturally produced in the
duodenum in the presence of fats and proteins. Recent studies
have shown that some of us may not be able to produce sufficient
quantities of it, leading to digestive disorders.
The fact that CCK optimizes digestion and metabolism
is very well researched and proven by many scientific studies.
When we use extra virgin pine nut oil, we produce more CCK,
digest our food better, and assimilate more nutrients. Our
metabolism is optimized, and our digestive system starts performing
to its fullest potential, making our body the "well-oiled
machine" it was originally designed to be.
teaspoons of healing extra virgin pine nut oil daily is all
you need to heal your peptic ulcers, gastritis, or GERD, boost
your metabolism and optimize your digestion and nutrient assimilation
For effective healing of gastritis, peptic
ulcers and other conditions related to an inflammation of
the gastrointestinal lining (such as acid reflux, IBS, or
ulcerative colitis), it is recommended to take at least 5
ml (one teaspoon) of extra virgin pine nut oil three times
daily 30 to 60 minutes before a meal. For duodenal ulcers,
it may be advisable to increase the dosage to 10 ml or more.
Some people also find it useful to take an extra spoonful
of pine nut oil at bedtime.
Sometimes, you will see an improvement in a matter of days
or even hours after you begin taking pine nut oil. In other
situations, it may take longer (on average, a significant
improvement will be felt in 7 to 10 days after starting treatment).
As with any other naturopathic remedy, it is important to
persevere and continue treatment until you see results. After
a stable improvement is achieved, the oil may be discontinued,
but it is still a good idea to take a teaspoon at least once
a day to avoid ulcer recurrence and protect the gastrointestinal
lining. It is also a great idea to make pine nut oil a regular
part of your diet by using it in your everyday meal
A great thing about extra virgin
pine nut oil is that, in addition to taking it straight by
the teaspoon, you can use it in a variety of delicious and
healthy recipes ranging from salad dressings and pastas to
smoothies, cakes and homemade nut butters. Extra virgin pine
nut oil is not just a great healer and metabolism enhancer,
but also a gourmet culinary oil that can be used in your kitchen
in a variety of creative ways. For example, you could use
in baking and light sauteing, or as an absolutely delightful
dipping oil. If desired, it can be mixed into olive oil or
used instead of it on your salad or in any of your favorite
dishes that call for vegetable oil. We have a special page
on our site devoted to our very own favorite pine
nut oil recipes.
Sea Buckthorn Oil: the Ultimate Gift
Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae
also known as Seaberry, Siberian pineapple, or Alpine Sandthorn
berry, is a deciduous tree or shrub naturally occurring over
very large territories in Europe and Asia. Most scientists
think that it originates from the Himalayan Mountains, where
its natural hardiness and vigor allow it to thrive on solid
rock formations around crystal-clear rivers fed from ancient
glaciers, at elevations as high as 14,000 feet.
Buckthorn is known in China, Russia and Europe as one of nature’s
most incredible medicinal plants. Its small, bright orange
berries have been cherished for centuries for their truly
incredible healing, nutritive, and therapeutic qualities.
The richly colored oil produced from Sea Buckthorn berries
is so abundant in vitamins, antioxidants, and other healing
compounds that many believe that Sea Buckthorn must have been
created by some ancient plant-breeder. Sea Buckthorn berries
have no match in the plant kingdom for their content of carotenoids
(pro-vitamin A), tocopherols (vitamin E), phylloquinone (vitamin
K), as well as other vitally important healing and health-promoting
vitamins, fatty acids, and micro-elements.
Various healing and health-promoting active ingredients are
contained in virtually every part of the Sea Buckthorn plant,
including its seeds, leaves, and bark. However, the most potent
concentrate of biologically active compounds is the rich therapeutic
oil contained in the bright orange Sea Buckthorn berries.
Medicinal uses of the Sea Buckthorn berry oil
are well documented in Asia and Europe. Clinical tests on
its medicinal uses were first initiated in Russia during the
1950s. Sea Buckthorn oil was formally listed in the Pharmacopoeia
in 1977, and clinically tested in Russia and China on numerous
occasions. The most important pharmacological functions attributed
to Sea Buckthorn oil are anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial,
analgesic, and regenerative. Based both on many centuries
of traditional use, and on modern scientific research and
clinical studies, Sea Buckthorn berry oil has been proven
to be an amazingly effective natural remedy for all health
problems related to damaged mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal
tract, including the following widespread conditions:
• Mouth ulcers (also called aphthae, or
• Esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus) and Barrett’s
• Acid reflux (GERD)
• Recurrent, hard to treat peptic ulcers
• Ulcerative colitis (inflammation and ulceration of colon
• Crohn’s disease
• Diverticulosis and diverticulitis
The unique therapeutic properties of Sea
Buckthorn oil are explained by its almost unbelievable abundance
in health-promoting bioactive components. The ripe berries
of Sea Buckthorn contain more than 190 varieties of bioactive
substances, of which 106 occur in the berry (fruit) oil. This
number includes six different fat-soluble vitamins and vitamin-like
substances, 22 fatty acids, 42 kinds of lipids and 36 kinds
of flavonoids and phenols. In addition to healing canker sores,
esophagitis, GERD, colitis, and other gastrointestinal inflammation-
and ulceration-related disorders, Sea Buckthorn oil is also
used to treat burns, skin lesions and other skin problems,
including rosacea and eczema, cervical erosions, atherosclerosis,
high blood pressure, etc.
Our richly colored, extra thick and ultra-fresh
Sea Buckthorn oil is produced from select, highest-grade Sea
Buckthorn berries grown in full conformity with USDA organic
requirements in a specially designed, eco-friendly Sea Buckthorn
orchard. Our Sea Buckthorn berries are picked at the peak
of their biological activity and cold-processed mechanically
using our proprietary technology without any chemical solvents,
refined carrier oils, or carbon dioxide: nothing added, nothing
taken away. The resulting oil is truly unmatched in its purity,
potency, and overall quality.
To achieve faster healing, many of our customers who purchase
extra virgin pine nut oil to treat their gastrointestinal
problems choose to combine it with Sea Buckthorn oil. Taken
together, these unique oils can truly work wonders on the
Camelina (wild flax) oil combines heart-healthy
omega-3 fatty acids with potent antioxidants
Another precious gem that we bring to
you from the treasure chest of traditional healing oils is
called Camelina oil, pressed
from the seeds of an ancient plant known as Camelina
Sativa, or wild flax. Just like regular flax, it is exceptionally
rich (up to 45%) in heart-healthy
omega-3 fatty acids. However, unlike
common flax (Linum Usitatissimum) oil, it contains
a unique combination of powerful
antioxidants, making it very stable and resistant to oxidation.
Yes, it's just as great for you as flax oil - only better!
Healthy omega-3 fats
are believed to help alleviate or cure a wide array of modern
diseases, especially those related to chronic inflammation.
Often, combining an abundant supply of omega-3 fats with natural
antioxidants and balanced nutrition consisting of traditional,
whole, unprocessed foods that supply all of the essential
nutrients, fiber and friendly bacteria is considered to be
the best prescription for overall health.
Camelina oil is unique in its ability
to supply our body with both omega-3 fatty acids and potent
In recent years, extensive research and
numerous clinical studies have confirmed that omega-3 fats
are involved in many vital physiological processes in our
bodies. It has been shown again and again that a deficit of
omega-3s may cause or aggravate many serious medical problems
and conditions. Camelina (wild flax) oil is a uniquely rich
source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) – the “parent” fatty
acid of the omega-3 family of health-promoting essential fats.
As noted above, the seed oil of Camelina contains
an exceptional amount (up to 45 per cent) of omega-3 fatty
acids, as well as a unique antioxidant complex giving it an
additional important advantage as an anti-inflammatory supplement.
Combined with a delicious nutty flavor, this extraordinary
blend of beneficial omega-3 EFAs and high oxidative stability
makes Camelina oil an excellent, versatile overall source
of both omega-3 fats and powerful antioxidants, including
tocopherols, carotenoids, and phosphatides. At 110mg/100g,
its vitamin E (tocopherol) content is among the highest of
all natural tocopherol sources.
As you probably know, there are other available sources of
omega-3 fatty acids (fish oils and flaxseed oil are the most
popular ones), but none of them combines omega-3s with potent
antioxidants such as vitamin E. On the contrary, using fish
oils or flaxseed oil as omega-3 supplements may aggravate
the overall free radical overload leading to artery damage.
Fish oils and flaxseed oil go rancid very easily, especially
when their natural antioxidants are removed by refining or
Unlike fish oils and flax oil, Camelina oil is exceptionally
stable and resistant to oxidation. Not only does it not cause
the formation of damaging free radicals, but it actually protects
the blood vessels from free radical damage by supplying our
body with powerful antioxidants such as vitamin E. Combined
with its abundance in omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA),
these antioxidants make Camelina oil one of the most powerful
natural anti-inflammatory supplements available today.
oil is the most balanced and health-promoting natural source
of omega-3 fatty acids
Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation is, without doubt, an absolute
must for anybody who is seriously interested in long-term
health maintenance and disease prevention. For quite a while,
nutritionists and consumers alike were looking for a dietary
source of omega-3s that would not only be abundant in these
health-promoting fatty acids, but also stable and resistant
to oxidation and rancidity. Camelina
oil, containing an outstanding amount of omega-3
fatty acids complemented by a powerful antioxidant
complex, meets these criteria perfectly.
acid composition of Camelina oil is also unique and very
beneficial in terms of its health-promoting qualities. While
being a rich source of ALA, the oil is highly monounsaturated,
naturally supplying more than 30 percent of stable monounsaturated
(oleic and gadoleic) fatty acids. This significant proportion
of monounsaturates (monounsaturated olive oil forms the basis
of the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet) further enhances
the oxidative stability of Camelina oil, and makes it a more
versatile cooking oil.
Finally, Camelina oil is relatively low
in omega-6 linoleic acid, resulting in a favorable omega-3/omega-6
ratio of up to 3-to-1. This decreases the potential of the
oil to stimulate the formation of less desirable series 2
prostaglandins (PGE2) while maximizing
its ability to support the synthesis of health-promoting series
3 prostaglandins (PGE3).
The combination of these important advantages
makes Camelina oil the most balanced and desirable source
of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation. While supplying almost
as much omega-3s as flax oil, it is highly stable and abundant
in vitamin E and other natural antioxidants, as well as beneficial
monounsaturated fatty acids. As a result, it does not promote
the formation of harmful free radicals. On the contrary, it
helps resist their destructive effects by providing powerful
antioxidant protection. That's why we call it "the
The delicate, pleasant taste and aroma
of Camelina oil makes it an excellent salad and cooking oil.
