It was selected from the wild, then naturally bred for
sustainable agricultural production. Its seed oil is now
one of the richest non-GMO sources of omega-3.
It will, no doubt, be getting a lot of attention.
And Nature’s Crops will be offering reliable,
sustainable, cost-effective supplies.
The percentage of adults who take fish oil more than
doubled in the last five years. In 2010, the global
market for omega-3s was valued at nearly $7.5 billion
and is still growing.
The search for plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids
has yielded promising results, and certain plant oils
have been identified as viable alternatives.
Flaxseed, for example, predominantly contains ALA,
a precursor to the EPA found in fish oil. But ALA does
not convert to EPA as efficiently as SDA, because SDA
is one step closer up the metabolic pathway.
We evaluated dozens of plants and then selected
one cultivar. After more than a decade of natural
breeding, our Buglossoides plant is now one of the
richest natural sources of SDA.
AHIFLOWER™ Oil contains up to 20% SDA, making
it one of the richest natural sources. And up to
30% of SDA converts to the EPA humans require
for optimal health.
Nature’s Crops will produce our new oil under
sustainable and environmentally sound production
methods. And our proprietary Crop Assured 365R
system ensures identity preservation and quality—from
soil to oil, naturally.
