Brief Introduction of Purslane Oil

Purslane can be used for cooking or used as a pickle. purslane oil has medicinal value and was proved by its use for treatment of burns, headache, and diseases related to the intestine, liver, stomach, cough, shortness of breath, and arthritis. Its use as a purgative, cardiac tonic, emollient, muscle relaxant, and anti-inflammatory and diuretic treatment makes it important in herbal medicine.

Purslane oil and Omega-3 Fatty acids

As known, Purslane oil is a very good vegetarian source of alpha-linolenic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid. Alpha-linolenic acid is an essential omega-3 fatty acid which plays very important role in human growth, development, prevention of numerous cardiovascular diseases, and maintenance of a healthy immune system. Purslane contains five times higher omega-3 fatty acids than spinach. Our bodies do not synthesise omega-3 fatty acids, therefore omega-3 fatty acids must be obtained from a dietary source, and Health authorities highly recommend people consume omega-3 fatty acids regularly to meet our bodies’ requirements.

Purslane has recently been identified as a good vegetarian source of alpha-linolenic acid, which is an essential omega-3 fatty acid. The lack of dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids has resulted in a growing level of interest to introduce purslane as a new cultivated vegetable, and Purslane flourishes in numerous biogeographical locations worldwidely and is highly adaptable to many adverse conditions such as drought, saline, and nutrient deficient conditions.
