Thousands of people worldwide are part of a new wave of health and nutrition with Sacha Inchi as it is gaining international recognition for its smooth taste and extraordinary health properties.

Sacha Inchi has been called a super food because of its’ high content of Omega-3, 6 and 9 and its properties as an antioxidant.

The oil has a mild flavor, not bitter, with a nutty finish. With new medical research emphasizing the health benefits of Omega fatty acids, interest in sustainable sources of Sacha Inchi is increasing. It is excellent dip for bread, salad oil or drizzled over any food for a rich decadent taste.

Several large restaurant chains and food companies are expirimenting with Sacha Inchi in recipes, dressings, and formulas. Pharmaceutical and nutritional supplement manufacturers are testing formulas utilizing the oil in their processes and medical research is rapidly confirming the amazing and wonderful health benefits of the oil.

The secret is out and sales are skyrocketing. Japan, France & Germany are already some of the largest consumers of Sacha Inchi oil and demand in the United States is expanding at a blistering pace.

Sacha inchi is an Amazonian oleaginous plant and the oil is made from hand selected raw seeds and obtained by a cold press extraction. A filtration process is then used to eliminate impurities and produce the final product. Sacha Inchi oil is the perfect compliment to meat, fish, poultry, salads and vegetable dishes with it’s crisp, nutty flavor or used as an ingredient for the preparation of different blends, sauces and dressings.

And since Sacha Inchi is lighter, better tasting and easier to digest than olive oil, the excellent and powerful omega complexes absorb rapidly and allow the body to easily convert them into DHA and EPA. (note: Sacha Inchi Oil should only be used cold in the form of dressings or pure, and it is not for cooking.)

Benefits You Expect from High-Powered Omega-3s such as Sacha Inchi Oil Reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, depression and Alzheimer’s disease:

  • Cholesterol/Blood/Arteries: Prevents blood clotting by keeping saturated fats mobile in the blood stream which helps reduce the risk of coronary diseases. Boosts the bodies HDL (good cholesterol) and lowers dangerous triglycerides (blood fat).

    Decreases platelet aggregation and prevents excessive blood clotting. Inhibits thickening of the arteries by decreasing endothelial cells' production of a platelet-derived growth factor (the lining of the arteries is composed of endothelial cells). Increases the activity of another chemical derived from endothelial cells (endothelium-derived nitric oxide), which causes arteries to relax and dilate. Reduces the production of messenger chemicals called cytokines, which are involved in the inflammatory response associated with atherosclerosis. Lowers the amount of lipids (fats such as cholesterol and triglycerides) circulating in the bloodstream.

  • Bones & Joints: Reduces bone loss, allows betters calcium absorption and helps maintain bone density.

  • Kidneys: Maintains proper kidney function and fluid balance

  • Glaucoma: Regulates eye pressure and blood vessel conditions and is involved in immunological response.

Hypertension: Reduces triglyceride levels and hypertension.

Diabetes/Weight loss: Regulates sugar levels in the blood. Assists in the control of diabetes, and digestive disorders. Reduces the risk of becoming obese and improves the body's ability to respond to insulin by stimulating the secretion of leptin, a hormone that helps regulate food intake, body weight and metabolism, and is expressed primarily by adipocytes (fat cells).

Depression/Mental health/Alzheimer’s: Relieves anxiety and the symptoms of depression, improves mood and problems with attention or hyperactivity. Regulates nerval transmission and communication by maintaining the fluidity and rigidity of cellular membranes

Arthritis: Reduces arterial inflamation. Eases arthritic symptoms such swollen, painful joints and morning stiffness while improving your mobility, flexibility and grip strength. Eases rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Asthma: Controls the symptoms of asthma.
  • Tissue/Skin/Hair: Acts as an antioxidant agent while transporting oxygen from red blood cells to the tissues. Reduces inflammation in the tissues, helps dry skin and rejuvenates hair.
  • Crohn’s Disease: Assists in the control of digestive disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn’s Disease.
  • Cancer: Helps prevent cancer cell growth
