First cold-pressed virgin oil. Organic perilla plant oil taken as a nutritional supplement is a natural, organic and renewable source of omega-3. Guaranteed content of 65%. Why choose Perilla Vegan 3?
- A balanced supply of the highest-quality fatty acids (Omegas 3-6-9)
Perilla Vegan 3 is an oil with an unparalleled level of omega-3 in the plant world, surpassing all other oils. The plant oil extracted from the black seeds of Perilla frutescens supplies 65% ALA (alpha-linoleic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid) and around 12% omega-6 fatty acids. It also contains a good proportion of omega-9 fatty acids (between 14% and 23%). In addition to offering an excellent balance of omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids, Perilla Vegan 3 is easily assimilated by the body at any age. Perilla Vegan 3 optimises the conversion of ALA into EPA and then DHA, even after the age of 60. The recommended daily intake of omega-3 ALA is 2g, which is the minimum amount required to correctly fuel the brain, regulate cholesterol levels, stimulate intellectual activity and support the growth of children.
- Health arguments validated through research
Fatty acids have an impact on blood lipids, and since ALA is a non-negligible source of plant-based omega-3, it helps maintain normal cholesterol levels. For information: the beneficial effect is achieved by consuming 2g of ALA per day. In addition, omega-6 fatty acids protect the digestive system by stimulating the evacuation of toxins and boosting nutrient absorption. Moreover, ALA is the best fatty acid for the brain since it helps stimulate intellectual activity and promotes good nervous and mental balance. Keep in mind that a healthy brain needs 2 grams of alpha-linoleic acid per day to function properly. Perilla is recommended for children, students and seniors since it improves concentration. Perilla plant oil is therefore a partner for the whole family and for anyone wanting to preserve their cognitive abilities!
- Antioxidant properties and perfect preservation
Unlike other plant oils rich in omega-3, Perilla Vegan 3 is not readily oxidisable. Although it has no added preservatives, it maintains its nutritional properties over time. The tocopherols contained in Perilla Vegan 3 are also recognised as protecting cells against free radicals.
Perilla Vegan 3 has proven to be far superior to other plant oils, with an ORAC (antioxidant capacity) value of 7700 / 100 g. It is thus a non-negligible daily source of antioxidants.
- An effective, healthy, organic and environmentally friendly alternative to fish oils
Until recent years, cold-water fish oils were the main dietary sources of omega-3. In a context of water pollution, it has become increasingly obvious that fish oils can be contaminated by sources of mercury and heavy metals. Furthermore, some of these oils are extracted from farmed fish and contain very few essential fatty acids. In an age when marine biodiversity has never been so threatened, it is time to turn to healthy alternatives of plant origin.
Perilla Vegan 3 is perfectly suited to vegetarians, those who don't like the taste of fish, and those who care about protecting the environment. The perilla oil used is organic and cold-pressed. It is most definitely the best healthy and eco-friendly alternative.
