Emu Oil for Internal Health

If you’re only using emu oil on your skin, you’re missing out on a wealth of health benefits. Taken internally, this natural supplement delivers omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids as well as a range of antioxidants. 


Here’s how it can improve your wellbeing from the inside out.

Lowers cholesterol

An excellent source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, taking our capsules may help balance cholesterol levels. These fats, also present in olive oil, help to lower triglycerides and the ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol while maintaining levels of ‘good’ HDL cholesterol.


In fact, a 2004 hamster study found that both emu oil and olive oil on cholesterol and heart health.

Reduces gut inflammation

The anti-inflammatory action of pure emu oil is good news for anyone suffering from digestive diseases. Omega 3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect in the body, which may soothe inflammation-related gut conditions such IBS, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease and stomach ulcers. Studies show it could also reduce mucositis (inflammation of the intestine caused by chemotherapy). Taking it internally delivers its goodness directly to the digestive system, where it’s needed.

Eases aches and pain

Emu oil can be delivered both internally and externally to treat muscle aches and arthritic pain. It helps to relieve pain by reducing inflammation throughout the body. If you’re suffering from multiple muscle aches or arthritis in several joints, taking it internally may be a more efficient way of treating pain in multiple sites than using it topically.

General wellbeing

Omega 3 and 6 are called ‘essential’ fatty acids because the body can’t make them – they need to be obtained from food – so emu oil may be a good way of ensuring you’re getting enough of these valuable nutrients. Omega 3 in particular has been linked to heart health, brain function and a reduced risk of diabetes.


It also contains vitamins A, D, E, F and K2 as well as natural antioxidants, polyphenols and flavonols, which all contribute to general health and wellbeing. If you’re taking fish oil supplements but hate the fishy aftertaste, you may prefer taking 100% pure emu oil. It’s a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids, minus the odour.
