introduction:perilla oil is obtained from the seeds of annual herbs
of the genus perilla, usually perilla frutescens. The seeds contain
35 to 45 percent oil which is obtained by pressing. Perilla oil is
used along with synthetic resins in the production of varnishes.
Perilla oil dries faster than linseed oil and on drying forms a
film that is harder and yellows more than that formed by linseed
oil. The paint and varnish industry accounts for the largest usage.
Perilla oil also is important in the manufacture of printing inks
and linoleum, and in more ancient times was a critical component in
creating durable earthen floors. Perilla oil is a very rich source
of alpha-linolenic acid. About 50 to 60% of perilla oil is
alpha-linolenic acid. Alpha-linolenic acid is an n-3 (omega-3)
all-cis polyunsaturated fatty acid containing 18 carbon atoms and
three double bonds. It is also known as ala; ala, 18:3n-3; 9,12,
15-octadecatrienoic acid and (z,z, z)-9,12,15-octadecatrienoic
function:1. To lower blood fat. According to the study by zhara,
perilla oil can prevent the platelet from aggregating, lower the
neutral lipids in blood, remove cholesterol and prevent thrombosis.
2. To nourish the brain and enhance memory dha synthesized by ? ? -
linolenic acid can be found in the cerebral cortex, retina, and
germ cell with great quantity. It can also cause the growth of the
synapse of cranial nerves cell so as to improve memory.
3. To resist senility.
4. To prevent cancer.
5. To prevent allergy.
