The people of Siberia have traditionally used pine nut oil as a digestive aid, notes Siberian Tiger Naturals. This oil may aid in digestion and therefore promote a healthy stomach lining by making digestive enzymes more available to break down nutrients such as proteins, fats and carbohydrates.

Limited research has been performed on the effects of pine nut oil on gastritis and other digestive disorders. In a study conducted by the Tomsk Scientific Research Institute of Balneotherapy and Physiotherapy, 30 patients who took 1 teaspoon of pine nut oil three times per day over a two-month period experienced a significant decrease in symptoms of chronic gastritis, notes Siberian Pine Nut Oil.
