Read into the “Buccal Delivery System”
– This may explain why it is best to choose ORGANIC, UNREFINED oils, as nutrients are absorbed through the inner lining of the cheeks… some studies are actually showing nutrients/extracts absorbed in smaller amounts, through the buccal delivery system, appear in the blood in larger amounts than when compared to an average dose taken orally – in regards to resveratrol in one study; 30 mg taken via Buccal vs. 250 mg digested orally, produces the same amount of nutrients in the blood. The example found here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resveratrol
- Search “buccal”.
So in this sense, during the beginning of pulling with UNrefined oil, all those good vitamins in sesame or sunflower are being absorbed, as the oil thins and bacteria, parasites, etc... are being pulled back and forth, the oil becomes more toxic as living space grows and thins… the milky thinned oil being that living space. This is why Oil Pulling is definitely not an “overnight miracle solution”, but obviously has long term benefits, which can sometimes be seen soon after the first treatment.
Also, “North Coast Man” makes a good point when describing the refining process for oil, as he describes a chemical used during this process as , “DRANO”! What”!? So yea, no Drano for me, thanks ;-)
I found this post on ( http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message337185/pg4
)- that seems to hold some important information for those who understand the buccal delivery system!
"I would favor sesame oil for long term use because Sunflower oil & safflower oils have phytochemicals in them which mimic various hormones & might possibly cause some problems in some people.
Check this site for some facts on this matter ( http://www.nobreastcyst.com/phyto.html
So with all that I said, I hope some of you will understand why I only purchase “ORGANIC” oil. If you don’t know about absorption/digestion of organic vs. conventionally grown food, I implore you, do search as the studies are available online.
Be safe people – choose organic ESPECIALY FOR OIL PULLING! So much is being absorbed during the 10-20 minutes of pulling.
