Interestingly, since it became known to the world outside of Morocco, the Argan oil has also gained ground in the modern medical field thanks to its unique and rich natural composition.
Besides fulfilling nutritional needs, one can’t stress it enough how beneficial pure Argan oil is.
It contributes to the human health without any negative side effects.
Especially in our time when almost each product out there contains unnatural chemical substances, the least we can say is that they are unnecessary.
I could go into the technical stuff and provide a never-ending explanation about:
- The complex mixture of the natural chemical compounds (both major and minor components)
- Why each of these substances adds in value to the inventory of Argan oil´s benefits
- Why they are all good for numerous sorts of health and cosmetic problems…
But that would be like boring somebody with how electricity technically works whilst her/his only need is just to get a bulb fixed: Time doesn´t permit!
For those of you guys who are really keen on the technical approach I´ll make a –more or less– simple chart in a later blog post to appease your scientific thirst 🙂
Many recent clinical studies claimed that, due to its unique phytosterols combination, a regular dietary intake of pure Argan oil is very effective.

Argan oil is also reputed to possess anti-inflammatory properties.
Some health experts are even promoting that daily consumption of Argan oil is probably one of the factors helping the prevention of various cancers (i.e. prostate cancer…).
Here are some of Argan oil´s other health benefits:
