Perilla Oil by Health From The Sun
Omega-3 Perilla Oil 1000 mg, Vegetarian is an alternate source of Omega-3 essential fatty acids. It is derived from the Asian Beefsteak plant (Perilla fructescens.) Flax seed oil contains 60% Omega-3 fatty acids and 20% Omega-6 fatty acids, a 3 to 1 ratio. Fish oils are similar but more expensive and more subject to oxidation because they are more highly unsaturated. They also contain long chain Omega-3's such as EPA and DHA which are synthesized in the body from alpha-linolenic acid. Health From The Sun Perilla Oil 1000 is cold expeller-pressed perilla seed oil, one of nature's richest plant sources of the omega-3 essential fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid. With 55% omega-3 fatty acids, perilla oil is an ideal vegetarian alternative to fish oil as well as an excellent alternative to flax seed oil. Studies prove that omega-3 fatty acids play a vital role in heart, brain, joint and skin function. Perilla Oil 1000 also contains flavonoids, anthocyanins and phenolic compounds; antioxidant nutrients that play a role in allergies and cardiovascular health. Chemical free extraction.
