Benefits of Sacha Inchi Oil

  • Cholesterol – Sacha inchi lowers LDL and raises HDL cholesterol. Cholesterol levels may not be the biggest marker for cardiovascular problems we once thought them to be, but they are still a concern and can reflect dietary problems and genetic dispositions toward some diseases.
  • Well Being – These seeds contain a good amount of tryptophan, a precursor for serotonin. Serotonin is a feel-good hormone and neurotransmitter that helps us deal with stress and feel calm and happy. The omega 3 also reduces inflammation in the brain, which can cause mood shifts, headaches, and more.
  • Weight Loss – Higher serotonin levels, thanks to the tryptophan, also regulate appetite so we don’t get cravings, overeat, or snack more than we need to.
  • Brain Health – The majority of our brain is composed of fat. We need good, healthy fats to resupply those cells and to continually fight inflammation. Inflammation in the brain can cause depression, fatigue, memory issues, and exaggerated responses to pain.
  • Heart Health – Sacha inchi improves circulation while lowering blood pressure, cholesterol, and inflammation throughout the body. All of this makes for a healthier, happier, less stressed cardiovascular system, from arteries to heart and beyond.
  • Diabetes – Omega 3 helps control glucose levels. Many doctors and researchers argue that omega 3 may actually reduce insulin resistance in those with type 2 diabetes. Omega 3 also lowers triglyceride levels, which are often high in diabetics
  • Bone Health – Omega 3s help the body absorb calcium. Foods rich in omega 3 improve bone density, staving off some of the deterioration that occurs as we age.
  • Vision – The vitamin E, vitamin A, and omegas in sacha inchi can improve vision and maintain eye health. Like the brain, the eyes rely on a good amount of fat, and are prone to inflammatory damage, especially as we get older.
  • Joint Health – The anti-inflammatory nature of sacha inchi may make it a good supplement to ease joint pain and rheumatoid arthritis. Consider combining sacha inchi oil with ginger for even more benefits.
  • Skin and Hair – Omega 3 fatty acids are vital to healthy hair and skin. They help us regulate oil production, keep skin elastic, lock in hydration, protect against sun damage, and help repair damage when it occurs.

FAQ

Do I need to keep the product in the refrigerator once opened?2021-07-23T18:39:05+08:00

This is not required although you can if you want to. Keeping it at room temperature is fine. Once opened, please consume daily based on recommended dosage i.e: one tablespoon a day. It should finish within 20 days. Do not open and leave it unconsumed for a long time as oil tends to oxidize over time. If you want convenience, you can opt of the sachet type instead.

Can pregnant women and breastfeeding drink ?2020-08-28T14:36:14+08:00

Yes. In fact it is encouraged. Sacha Inchi Oil is rich in fatty acids and it’s important in pregnant and breast feeding women. During pregnancy, the mother transfers her reserves of fatty acids to the fetus for its brain to form, thus giving rise to cases of post-partum depression due to diminished levels of these acids in her body.

Post-partum depression is effectively treated by supplementing the diet, during pregnancy, with foods rich in fatty acids. The advantage of this type of treatment is that, along with being antidepressants, the fatty acids are completely harmless, causing no side effects, and moreover, allow the proper development of the brain in the fetus during pregnancy.

Is it better to consume it in the morning or evening?2021-01-15T15:01:44+08:00

It doesn’t really matter. You can consume it at any time of the day. Typically, it is consumed in the morning before breakfast or taken before bed.

How long does it take to see the effect?2020-08-28T15:08:54+08:00

It depends on each individual as everyone’s condition is different. Some have reported positive effect as soon as the 3rd day, some within 1 week, and some after 3 months of regular consumption. It is important to be consistent i.e: 3ml-5ml once or twice a day in order to experience its impact.
