So, what is turtle oil?

Turtle oil is a highly sought after ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine due to its numerous health benefits. Extracted from the fat of the soft-shelled turtle, this oil is known for its ability to alleviate joint pain, improve skin texture, and enhance overall vitality. Its high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, and antioxidants make it a popular choice for promoting cardiovascular health and boosting immunity. The oil is typically used topically or ingested in small doses, and is often combined with other natural ingredients for optimal results. Its rich, earthy aroma and unique healing properties have made turtle oil a prized ingredient in alternative medicine for centuries.
