First of all this oil contains a mix of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids in addition to vitamins A and E, and fiber. There is an abundance of science supporting the role of omega fatty acids in a healthy lifestyle. Consuming omega-3 in particular seems to have an effect on mood, inflammation (link) in particular inflammation caused by fatty liver disease (link), an increasingly common problem, especially in those who are overweight. While the most common carrier of omegas is fish, if you’re following a vegetarian diet, you may not want to consume fish, or even fish oil capsules — this is where plant sources come in. Since Sacha Inchi is a plant source abundant in omega-3’s, it can be a great alternative to fish oils.
Sacha Inchi oil is also a good source of iron, a necessary nutrient in maintaining muscle tone and brain function due to its role in transporting oxygen throughout the blood.
Given the fact that it is nutrient-dense and full of Omega fatty acids, we think Sacha Inchi oil isn’t just a better carrier oil for our products, we think it’s the best!
