Introducing the richest effective combined omega 3+6 source from a single plant
After more than a decade of research and natural plant breeding techniques, the experts at Nature’s Crops International have developed AHIFLOWER Oil, a proprietary branded form of Buglossoides arvensis seed oil. AHIFLOWER is exclusively available from Nature’s Crops.
AHIFLOWER Oil is the richest commercially available plant source of omega-3 stearidonic acid (SDA) known, offering manufacturers the opportunity to incorporate a sustainable, non-genetically modified, vegan source of omega-3 fatty acids into their products. AHIFLOWER Oil also contains therapeutically beneficial omega-6 gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Since SDA and GLA both bypass the rate-limiting step involving the liver enzyme delta-6 desaturase, our bodies metabolize them far more efficiently than other plant-derived omegas such as alpha linolenic acid (ALA). AHIFLOWER Oil therefore offers a far more efficient omega-3+6+9 solution.
Consumers and formulators seeking a pure, sustainable, traceable source of omega-3 fatty acids that is closer biologically to omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) found in fish or algal oils will find that AHIFLOWER Oil provides a game-changing alternative to conventional plant sources of omega-3s. AHIFLOWER Oil acts like “turbo-charged” flax, chia, sacha inchi, or perilla oils in terms of EPA conversion—plus it provides omega-6 GLA usually derived from borage or evening primrose oils. Further, AHIFLOWER OIL has a clean aroma and a pleasingly rich taste that blends well into healthy foods and beverages.
AHIFLOWER Oil is being developed in a range of dietary supplements, nutritional foods, nutraceuticals, pet/equine feeds, and personal care products. Pharmaceutical applications involving AHIFLOWER Oil’s uniquely high SDA content will be developed in the future.
Compare AHIFLOWER Oil to other omega-3 sources. See the chart below to better understand how this unique oil addresses the needs of industry and why it will make such an impact on the omega-3 supply chain.
New AHIFLOWER Oil offers brands and manufacturers the opportunity to offer a non-GM omega 3+6+9 product from a single plant source of unequaled purity and traceability.
