Castor chekku oil benefits:

Significant anti-inflammatory effects

Ricinoleic acid, the main fatty acid found in castor oil, has impressive anti-inflammatory properties. Various studies have shown that when castor oil is applied topically, it reduces inflammation and relieves pain.

The pain-reducing and anti-inflammatory qualities of castor oil may be particularly helpful to people with an inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis or psoriasis.

Strong laxative

One of the best-known medicinal uses for castor oil is as a natural laxative. It is classified as a stimulant laxative, meaning that it increases the movement of the muscles that push material through the intestines, helping clear the bowels. Stimulant laxatives act rapidly and are commonly used to relieve temporary constipation.

When consumed by mouth, castor oil is broken down in the small intestine, releasing ricinoleic acid, the main fatty acid present in castor oil. The ricinoleic acid is then absorbed by the intestine, stimulating a strong laxative effect. In fact, various studies have shown that castor oil can relieve constipation. Say, for example, one study found that when elderly people took castor oil, they experienced decreased symptoms of constipation, including less straining during defecation and lower reported feelings of overall incomplete bowel movements.

Act as a natural moisturizer

Cold-pressed castor oil is rich in ricinoleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid. These types of fats act as humectants and can be used to moisturize the skin. Humectants retain moisture by preventing overall water loss through the outer layer of the skin.

Castor oil is often used in cosmetics to promote hydration and often added to products like lotions, makeup, and cleansers. Castor oil is thick, so it is frequently mixed with other skin-friendly oils like almond, olive, and coconut oil to make an ultra-hydrating moisturizer.
