Thanks to Dr Axe for this valuable information:
What is castor oil exactly? It is a nonvolatile fatty oil that comes from the seeds of the castor bean (Ricinus communis) plant which belongs to the flowering spurge family (Euphorbiaceae). Castor oil, also called ricinus oil, is very thick with a color that ranges from clear to amber or somewhat green. It has a mild scent and taste.
1. Improves Immune Function
Castor oil may be able to help improve lymphatic drainage, blood flow, thymus gland health and other immune system functions. A small, double-blind study published in the Journal of Naturopathic Medicine looked at the effects of castor oil packs on 36 human subjects. The packs covered a 12-inch by 12-inch area of the skin on the upper right quadrant of the abdomen. The subjects had the packs applied while resting at 9 a.m. and then removed at 11 a.m. (so for a total of two hours). The subjects had their blood drawn four times (one time pre-treatment and three times post-treatment) and there was no repetition of treatment.
Overall, the researchers found that the subjects who used abdominal castor oil packs had significant increases in the production of lymphocytes compared with patients using placebo packs. Why is this an awesome finding? Lymphocytes are the immune system’s natural “disease-fighters” that attack outside invaders such as toxins, bacteria and other perceived threats.
So it appears that castor oil helps with the production of proper levels of lymphocytes, which are released and stored within the lymphatic tissue of the thymus gland, spleen, lymph nodes and tissue that lines the small intestine. The lymphatic system also impacts the circulatory and digestive systems, which is why the oil is sometimes used to support heart health and improve digestive issues like constipation, too.
2. Boosts Circulation
A healthy lymphatic system and proper blood flow go hand in hand. When the lymphatic system fails (or edema develops, which is the retention of fluid and toxins), it’s much more likely someone will have circulatory issues. This is due to the fact that the lymphatic circulatory system works directly with the cardiovascular circulatory system to keep blood and lymphatic fluid levels in an optimal balance.
According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, “A growing body of evidence reveals that the lymphatic system influences the health of multiple organs, including the heart, lung, and brain.” So castor’s oil ability to positively affect our lymphatic systems likely means better overall circulation and a health boost to major organs like our hearts.
