Overview

Korean pine is a tree that grows in parts of Asia. The nuts of Korean pine are eaten as a food. The nuts, needles, bark, and resin are used as medicine.

Korean pine is used for earaches, nosebleeds, to increase milk production during breastfeeding, weight loss, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

How does it work ?

Korean pine nut oil increases levels of certain hormones that make people feel full. This might help people lose weight.
