Sachi Cúrcuma Complete Protein Powder is an ideal superfood due to its many potential health benefits from combining Incaliving’s organic Curcumin and our organic Sacha Inchi protein powder. This superfood is perfect for the keto diet or when supplementing for wheat flour.
We begin making our Sachi Cúrcuma Complete Protein Powder by utilizing Incaliving’s organic and all-natural turmeric root extract, which is grown at the foothills of the Andes in Pampa Camona. The province of Chanchamayo is known in Peru as the “Heart of the Jungle” because of the incredibly nutrient rich soil, which helps cultivate some of the finest and purest turmeric roots (Sandeep et al, 1). It is in this wonderful climate and altitude that our organic turmeric root with 99% curcuminoids is grown, making us one of the few companies offering such a high percentage of curcuminoids — meaning some of the the best tasting and most potent curcumin on the market and available to you and your family!
This incredible superfood has been utilized throughout the world as a medicinal herb for thousands of years. The turmeric root contains rich bioactive medicinal compounds called curcuminoids; it is these curcuminoids that give the root a vivid yellowish color and are possibly linked to a range of health benefits (Ahsan et al, 2).
Incaliving then mixes this all-natural and organic curcumin with our all-natural gluten free Sancha inchi flour (click here for more information about the product and other health benefits), which is made from selecting and harvesting the perfect seeds, which some scientists believe are grown right in Perú (Westreicher,3).
Incaliving’s organically grown and all-natural Sacha Inchi protein powder is derived from the harvested seed of the sacha inchi tree native to South America. This tree thrives in the fertile and nutrient rich soil of the Amazon jungles because it is grown at the ideal altitudes between 1,900-2,900ft. (Ramos-Escudero et al,4). It is here in the Amazonian jungle that researchers are helping to confirm what the Incas have known for nearly 3000 years, that sacha inchi can really help to impact health by simply consuming daily some of the highest concentrations of plant Omega 3s available (Kim et al, 5).
Next, the seeds are dried, and keeping in the same time honored tradition as the ancient Incas, are then cold pressed, which is utilized to create Incaliving’s all-natural, organic and cold pressed virgin Sacha Inchi Oil (click for more details regarding Sacha Inchi Oil and its health benefits). Conscience of the potential uses of the remaining sacha inchi paste, it is then heated slightly to help maximize the health benefits (Buenos-Borges et al,6). Cooking at the ideal temperature will not only enhance the natural flavor of the sacha inchi paste (Kim et al,7) it will also potentate the health benefits (Srichamnong et al,8).
Because we strive for the purest and most potent superfoods, Incaliving’s Sachi Curcuma is then packaged at the source and then transported via plane to our US distribution center. By packaging at the source, an expensive process many companies wouldn’t consider, we can maintain the highest overall quality better than our competitors’ products because potency is lost the longer it remains unpackaged, in transit and sitting.
Potential Health Benefits
According to some researchers, curcumin may help reduce oxidative stress (Lin et al,9), which occurs when there are too many free radicals in your body and not enough antioxidants to help cleanse them (Karimian et al, 10). In addition, curcumin may also contribute to stimulating antioxidant enzymes in the body that may help in the fight against cell aging and neurodegeneration (Abrahams et al, 11). Antioxidants are so vital since free radicals can damage proteins and even DNA, which may lead to long-term, low-grade and possibly chronic health issues and why curcumin could potentially help in many ailments (Kunnumakkara et al, 12).
Next, Curcumin may contribute to aiding in the fight against Alzheimer’s (Tang et al, 13) and dementia (Small et al, 14) because curcumin may help with increasing the levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is a growth hormone necessary for healthy brain activity (Goozee et al, 15). BDNF is a key molecule involved in learning and memory because it stimulates the growth of new neurons in your brain (Patel et al, 16). Curcumin has also seen potential links as a natural antidepressant (Sanmukhani et al, 17) and thanks to the many possible ways it can help with brain, it is a great way to improve mental (Zhu et al, 18) and brain health (Hucklenbroich et al,19).
Curcumin may help suppress the growth of fat tissue and aid in weight loss because it may be linked to inhibiting new blood vessel growth (Teich et al, 20), called angiogenesis, which is necessary to build fat tissue (Wu et al, 21). This is great news for those battling weight issues or just trying to be fit while managing weight.
Although inflammation is a natural process of the body for necessary repair and healing, long-lasting or out of control inflammation has been connected to possible health problems, like heart disease and obesity (Heaton et al, 22). Because curcumin can help suppress molecules that play a big role in causing inflammation (Yin et al, 23), it might help ease exercise-induced inflammation of the joints, muscle soreness and aiding the fight of possible chronic diseases linked to inflammation, like arthritis (Daily et al, 24). It could also aid in recovery for sports athletes as a study found “Curcumin and bromelain may also provide a recovery benefit during the competitive season” (Heaton et al, 25).
Not only is curcumin possibly helping with inflammation, so too will the omega 3s found naturally in sacha inchi (Ramos-Escudero et al, 26). Together these two anti-inflammatories work to help potentially reduce the inflammation of the joints and muscle soreness from exercising while possibly aiding in the fight against chronic diseases linked to inflammation (Nascimento et al, 27).
Additionally, since curcumin may potentially help in lowering blood pressure (Hadi et al, 28), imagine the possible impacts of Sachi Curcuma because sacha inchi could also contribute to heart health (Gonzales et al,29) and may assist in lowering blood pressure (Gonzalez et al, 30).

Similar to some of the weight loss properties in curcumin, sacha inchi also may help in the fight against weight gain (Sathe et al, 31). Fiber (linked to gastrointestinal health) represents approximately 75% of the carbohydrates in sacha inchi seeds (So et al, 32), and more research is supporting the idea that when it comes to diet, fiber-rich whole food sources of carbohydrates are superior to refined carbohydrates (Reynolds et al, 33).
Next, because sacha Inchi seeds are high in antioxidants gamma-tocopherol and phenolic compounds, they may help protect the body from aging faster than natural as antioxidants help to fight harmful free radicals (Cisneros et al, 34).
Additionally, Sacha Inchi contains a balance of the fatty acids Omegas 3, 6 and 9 (Kim et al, 35), which when coming from a renewable plant source (Fleming et al, 36) could be just as effective as fish oil according to more and more research (Maurer et al, 37).
Incredibly, our flour contains about 7g of proteins and that is so important for the body’s hair, nails and muscle maintenance and growth (Gonzales et al, 38). Plant proteins have also been shown by scientists to potentially “prevent the onset of risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease, i.e., hypercholesterolemia and hypertension, in humans” (Chalvon-Demersay et al, 39).
Amazingly, there are approximately 6,700mg of pure Omega 3s, which is so important in diets because of the numerous potential health benefits (Fanali et al, 40). For instance, it may help in improving the appearance of the skin, while also reducing wrinkles, sun spots and blemishes (Soimee et al, 41). Also, sacha inchi’s omegas may have soothing anti-inflammatory properties that help prevent psoriasis and eczema (Raveendran et al, 42).
Next, sacha inchi could possibly help in reducing cholesterol simply by replacing bad fats (Chirinos et al, 43). There are more and more studies regarding cholesterol (Garmendia et al, 44). In fact, sacha inchi may help lower the LDL (Alayon et al, 45) as well potentially increase the HDL- after four months of an experiment between sacha inchi and sunflower, it was the Inca Peanut impacting and raising the HDL the most (Gonzales et al, 46).
