    SUNFLOWER HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    FLOWERS, SEEDS & OIL

    Sunflowers offer a variety of healthy dietary choices using seeds and oil. Sunflower is also known as Helianthus annuus, Corona Solis, Marigold of Peru, and Solo Indianus.

    sunflower The sunflower is a summer annual best known for its large daisy-like flowers which can produce several hundred seeds each. The name is derived from the the Greek words helios (sun) and anthos (flower). One reason for this name is that the flowers are heliotropic; they bend towards the sun. In Greek mythology, the sunflower came to be because of a water nymph who was in love with the sun god Apollo. When he did not return her affections, she watched him from dawn to dusk, and soon her hair transformed into golden petals; her face, into the center of the flower, and her body, into the stem. The sunflower is believed to be native to North America, but the plant grows in many areas today including Europe and Central America. The seeds are the most commonly used part of the plant and are usually collected in the fall.

    Native Americans used Sunflower seeds as a source of meal and made a tea from the leaves for lung ailments such as malaria. The Incas of Peru used the Sunflower in their religious practices. Sunflower seeds are a wonderful source of protein, thiamine (B-1), niacin, potassium, iron, vegetable fats, phosphorus, calcium, iodine, fluorine, magnesium, sodium, and vitamin D. The seeds are also rich in polyunsaturates and the antioxidant, vitamin E.

    Healthy, natural Sunflower oil is the non-volatile oil compressed from oil type sunflower (Helianthus annuus) seeds. Sunflower oil is rich in vitamins A, B, D and E and can help rebuild the skin's moisture barrier when applied topically. Sunflower oil is light in taste and appearance and supplies more vitamin E than any other vegetable oil. It is a combination of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats with low saturated fat levels. Sunflower oil is commonly used in food as a frying oil, and in cosmetic formulations as an emollient. Sunflower oil was first industrially produced in 1835 in the Russian Empire. The world's largest sunflower oil producers now are Ukraine and Russia.

    Sunflower oil also contains lecithin, tocopherols, carotenoids and waxes. Sunflower oil is mainly a triglyceride, a typical constituent is shown.

    Palmitic Acid
    4 to 9%
    Stearic Acid
    1 to 7%
    Oleic Acid
    14 to 40%
    Linoleic Acid
    48 to 74%


    Sunflower oil is mainly triglycerides (fats), typically derived from the fatty acids linoleic acid (with is doubly unsaturated) and oleic acid. Several types of Sunflower oils are produced, such as high linoleic, high oleic and mid oleic. Mid-oleic Sunflower oil typically has at least 69 percent oleic acid. High oleic sunflower oil has at least 82 percent oleic acid. Variation in unsaturated fatty acids profile is strongly influenced by both genetics and climate. In the last decade, high stearic Sunflower lines have been developed in Spain to avoid the use of partially hydrogenated vegetable oils in the food industry. Sunflower oil is liquid at room temperature. The refined oil is clear and slightly amber-colored with a slightly fatty odor. The smoke point for refined Sunflower oil is 450°F (232°C) and the smoke point for unrefined Sunflower oil is 225°F (107°C).

    SUNFLOWER USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    HERB & OIL USES

    Native Americans are believed to have used the sunflower for more than 3000 years before the plant was introduced to Spain in 1514. Spain introduced the sunflower to the rest of Europe in the 16th century, but it was not until the 18th century that it was widely cultivated for its oil production.

    Sunflower petals are often used for their decorative element in crafts such as soap and paper making. They produce a dye that ranges in color from golden yellow to orange which is used as a natural fabric dye. Sunflower seeds, often eaten raw or roasted, are a good source of protein and Vitamins D, E, K, and B. Sunflower oil is common in margarine, and it is also used cosmetically in massage oils and other products.

    Today, Sunflower tea made from the leaves is used to treat high fevers. A poultice of roots works well on snakebites and spider bites. Sunflower seeds and leaves have both diuretic and expectorant properties, and they contain important nutrients that benefits the eyes and relieve constipation. Sunflower seed are also useful against dysentery and inflammations of the bladder and kidney. Sunflower oil helps reduce cholesterol, blood pressure, and prevent heart failure. Clinical studies have shown Sunflower oil is also helpful in healing damaged skin and replacing the natural lipids that damaged skin lacks. Sunflower leaves are astringent and are used in herbal tobaccos as well as a tea for lung congestion.

    As a frying oil, Sunflower oil behaves as a typical vegetable triglyceride. In cosmetics, it has smoothing properties and is considered noncomedogenic. Only the high oleic variety possesses shelf life sufficient for commercial cosmetic formulation. Sunflower oil's INCI name is Helianthus annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil. Sunflower oil is also an ingredient in sunflower butter and Sunflower oil can be used to run diesel engines when mixed with diesel in the tank.

    There are a variety of health benefits associated with the consumption of Sunflower oil.

  • Diet & Cardiovascular Benefits: Sunflower oil is high in the essential vitamin E and low in saturated fat. The two most common types of Sunflower oil are linoleic and high oleic. Linoleic Sunflower oil is a common cooking oil that has high levels of polyunsaturated fat. It is also known for having a clean taste and low levels of trans fat. High oleic Sunflower oils are classified as having monounsaturated levels of 80 percent and above. Newer versions of Sunflower oil have been developed as a hybrid containing linoleic acid. They have monounsaturated levels lower than other oleic Sunflower oils. The hybrid oil also has lower saturated fat levels than linoleic Sunflower oil.

  • Restaurant & Food Industry Uses: Restaurants and food manufacturers are becoming aware of the health benefits of Sunflower oil. The oil can be used in conditions with extremely high cooking temperatures. It may also help food stay fresher and healthier for longer periods of time. Food manufacturers are starting to use Sunflower oil in an effort to lower the levels of trans fat in mass produced foods. A number of common snack foods currently contain Sunflower oil.

  • Skin Protectant: Sunflower oil, like other oils, can retain moisture in the skin. It may also provide a protective barrier that resists infection in premature infants. Studies using Sunflower oil have been conducted involving low birth weight infants who are often susceptible to infection due to their underdeveloped skin. The study determined that infants receiving a daily skin treatment of Sunflower oil were 41 percent less likely to develop infections in the hospital.

    SUNFLOWER DOSAGE INFORMATION

    Sunflower comes in many different forms. The seeds, leaves, root, and oil can be found in numerous products. Read and follow product label directions.

    The dried petals are used in typical preparations. The petals can be made into an infusion that can be taken internally or used in the bath and their bright appearance makes a lovely contribution to most any creation. Sunflower petals are also used as ingredients in soaps, candles, potpourri, and dyes.

    sunflower seed butter


    Several varieties of sunflower oil-seeds have been developed by standard genetic methods. The original oil-seed was high in linoleic acid (LA), a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid. A premium high oleic acid strain, a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid, was developed in the late twentieth century. Early in the 21st century, a mid-oleic strain marketed as Nu-Sun was introduced as an improved frying oil that would have a low level of saturated fat, but would not require hydrogenation. These three major strains differ greatly in their levels of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. There are also minor differences in their saturated fat content. See National Sunflower Association for more information about Sunflower Oils.

    SUNFLOWER SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTION INFORMATION

    SAFETY CONCERNS

    Sunflower is generally regarded as safe. No known precautions.

    However, some people may experience allergic reactions.

    Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.

  • Negative Health Effects: A high consumption of omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are found in most types of vegetable oil, including Sunflower oil, may increase the likelihood postmenopausal women may develop breast cancer. A similar effect was observed on prostate cancer - however, the study was performed on mice. Another study indicated that, when heated to frying temperature for extended periods, sunflower oil produces aldehydes, which may be associated with some neurodegenerative diseases.

  • Preparation & Storage: Because Sunflower oil is primarily composed of healthier but less stable polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, it can be particularly susceptible to damage by heat and light. Keeping Sunflower oil at low temperatures both during processing and storage can help to minimize rancidity and nutrient loss, as can storage in darker amber-colored bottles.

  • Methods of Extraction: Sunflower oil can be extracted using chemical solvents such as hexane, or squeezed directly from Sunflower seeds by crushing them in an expeller press. Cold pressing Sunflower oil using an expeller press under low-temperature conditions is a preferred method for those seeking an extraction process that does not involve chemical solvents, as well as for people following a raw foods diet.

  • Refined Versus Unrefined: Refining sunflower oil through solvent extraction, degumming, neutralization and bleaching can make it more stable and suitable for high-temperature cooking, but will also remove some of the oil's nutrients and flavor, including color pigments, free fatty acids, phospholipids, polyphenols and phytosterols. Unrefined sunflower oil is less heat stable, but will retain more of its original nutrient content and flavor, and is well suited to dishes that require low- or no-heat.
