Vegetable oils are mostly healthful, but they differ significantly in composition and properties. Cedar nut oil is superior to other vegetable oils in many parameters: the content of tocopherol, the ratio of omega-3 and omega-6, the presence of amino acids and rare nutrients, such as vitamin PP and pinolenic acid.
Cedar nut oil and olive oil
Olive oil is an essential ingredient in the popular Mediterranean diet, and it does have many health benefits. However, cedar nut oil is superior to olive in the following ways:
- It contains 55 mg% vitamin E, which is 5-12 times higher than in olive oil. Vitamin E is the most important antioxidant that helps maintain beauty and protect against many diseases associated with oxidative stress.
- Siberian cedar nut oil has an optimal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 (1:2), while in olive oil this ratio is 1:10.
- Cedar nut oil, unlike olive oil, contains vitamin PP (nicotinic acid). This nutrient is especially important for the liver. Presumably, it is the presence of nicotinic acid, as well as the optimal composition of unsaturated fatty acids, that are related to the results of comparative experiments conducted in 2014. It was found that cedar nut oil has the best preventive and curative properties for liver steatosis, while olive oil did not show a significant effect. 
- Cedar nut oil contains more than 10 amino acids, while olive oil does not contain amino acids. These nutrients are important for nervous system health, body detoxification, psychological comfort, and cognitive functions protection.
Cedar nut oil and coconut oil
Cedar nut oil contains 3 times more tocopherol than coconut oil. Coconut oil is extremely low in omega-3 and omega-6 unsaturated fatty acids, but is a source of harmful saturated fats. Saturated fatty acids are the main source of "bad" cholesterol. They accumulate in cells and in the blood, increasing the workload on the heart and the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Also, coconut oil does not contain amino acids.
Cedar nut oil and sunflower oil
Sunflower oil contains 3 times less tocopherol than cedar nut oil. Also, sunflower oil is characterized by an extremely unbalanced composition of unsaturated fatty acids: the ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 in it can reach 1:200 (versus the optimal 1:2 in cedar oil). Sunflower oil does not contain amino acids.
Another important difference between cedar nut oil and all the listed products is pinolenic acid in its composition. This nutrient promotes weight loss. Pinolenic acid is an extremely rare nutrient found only in cedar products. Due to the absence of pinolenic acid, other vegetable oils, in particular olive oil, do not have a pronounced appetite suppressant effect.
