Info: 90 Veg. Softgels
Are you getting enough beneficial essential fatty acids in your diet to keep up your cardiovascular, skin, cognitive, and perhaps even psychological health? If you're a vegan, or if you simply don't like to eat or otherwise consume oily fish, chances are you're not (since they're the best source), so this is an excellent alternative.
You may have turned to vegetarian sources such as flax, chia, sacha inchi seed oil in the past, but they don't have as rich a profile in the various types of omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids as Ahiflower Oil does, particularly the type that's more likely to get converted to the main type of longer-chain Omega-3s we need most of during our prime years, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), which helps reduce inflammation and acts as a precursor to DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). It also contains Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), which is beneficial for the skin and immune system, and is not in flax, chia or even fish oil.
The Ahi Flower is a member of the borage family, which has been bred from a type of plant which tended to grow near wheat fields in England. This oil extracted from it delivers a healthy 3.5 to 1 balance of Omega 3 to Omega 6 (there are a total of 63% Omega 3s, 18% Omega 6s, and 6% Omega 9s); and it contains ALA, SDA, GLA, plus Linoleic, Oleic, Palmitic, and Other Fatty Acids.
While many plant-based sources of Omega 3's including Ahiflower oil contain ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), only about 5% of that particular type gets converted to EPA; compared to between 20 to 30% of SDA (stearidonic acid), which Ahiflower has quite a lot of (and many rival plant sources have none of), such that the net result is that EPA gets converted up to 3 or 4 times more efficiently in Ahiflower oil than in flax seed oil, for example.
