(Plukenetia volubilis linneo), also known as Sacha Inchi, is an indigenous plant to the Peruvian Amazon Forest. It has been cultivated along the eastern slopes of the lower Andes for more than 3,000 years, and has been depicted on Inca tomb carvings. It was not only used by The Incas for its great nutritional value but also its medicinal healing properties.
Unlike fish, cod liver or krill oil, Sacha Inchi is 100% plant based, cold-pressed extra virgin and yields the ideal balance of all omegas (3, 6 and 9). It also provides a rich content of the omega 3 fatty acids (6,700mg) per serving. It is 96% digestible and contains no cholesterol; in fact, it has been shown to help fight cholesterol among many other diseases. Sacha Inchi oil also contains a high level of antioxidants vitamin A & E which allows the oil to maintain its freshness and not require refrigeration after opening it.
