Sacha Inchi is a woody vine that is native to the Amazon Rainforests.  It has been cultivated by the indigenous people of these Rainforests for thousands of years. Sacha Inchi is consumed for its’ many health benefits. The Sacha Inchi plant produces a star shaped fruit that contains between 3 and 7 white nuts.  These Sacha Inchi nuts have a high protein and oil content.  The oil extracted from these nuts is rich in Omega 3,6 and 9 fatty acids.  Omega fatty acids have a wide range of human health benefits.

Health Benefits of Omega 

3, 6 and 9?

Omega Fatty Acids have been researched extensively for many years and numerous health benefits are being discovered.  Studies have shown that Omega 3,6 and 9 are good for the heart, circulation, brain, nervous system and skin.  Many researchers also describe benefits in cholesterol management, weight loss, management of depression and mood and anti-aging.

Sacha Inchi is the highest plant based source of Omega Fatty Acids with approximately 93% of the fats in Sacha Inchi being healthy Unsaturated Fats.  Fish Oil is another source of Omega Fatty Acids however Sacha Inchi has approximately 6% Saturated Fats whereas Fish Oil contains approximately 40% Saturated fats. Sacha Inchi production is fully sustainable and it does not result in depletion of the oceans.  Our Sacha Inchi is grown using Organic Gardening principles with no chemicals used in the growing and processing of the plants.  Additionally the ratio of Omega 3 and 6 in Sacha Inchi is much better for human health than the ratio of these fatty acids in most foods found in normal western diets.
