Ahiflower® Oil is a 100% vegan, gluten free, plant-sourced oil, that is 100% sustainable and 100% traceable to the British fields in which it was grown. It is a strong, non-GMO source of daily omega-3 fatty acids, as well as a supply for the body’s daily omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids needs. But why do we need omegas? What do they even do? Specifically… why do we need Ahiflower?
If you’re currently using an omega product, here are the top reasons to make the switch to Ahiflower:
Ahiflower Oil is the Superior, Complete Omega Supplement
Omegas are essential for good health, and necessary for the body’s functions to properly, and most effectively operate. Ahiflower Oil has the richest and most effective combined essential fatty acids from a single plant — more than flax, chia, hemp, sach inchi, perilla, or echium seed oils.
The omegas that Ahiflower Oil delivers are:
- Omega-3 – ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) and SDA (stearidonic acid)
- Omega-6 – GLA (gamma linolenic acid) and LA (linoleic acid)
- Omega-9 – OA (oleic acid)
Omega-3 fatty acids help scrape off the “bad” cholesterol, to balance the good cholesterol in your body. The effect of Ahiflower being so rich in omega 3 and 6 means its fights plaque buildup on the walls of your arteries and blood vessels, helping to reduce blood pressure as well as lowering your chances of developing strokes, heart attacks and heart diseases.
The ALA, alpha-linolenic acid, is a n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid that has been found in studies to help reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, improve platelet function, reduce inflammation, promote healthy endothelial cell function, protect arterial function and reduce heart arrhythmias. It can also protect the lining of the GI tract and promote beneficial gut flora, even for people with “normal” digestive systems.
GLA, gamma linolenic acid, is a plant-derived omega-6, most abundant in seeds of an Eastern flower known as borage. Although a member of the omega-6 family, it’s metabolized differently than other omega-6s. OA, oleic acid, reduces blood pressure and improves membrane fluidity.
Ahiflower Oil is Plant-Based
By taking Ahiflower as a cost-effective investment towards better health as you age, you are doing much more than just bettering your body.
Ahiflower Oil helps decrease the environmental footprint left behind from indiscriminate wild harvesting of fish and krill.
Impressively, there is no other plant-based supplement that has the same combination of omega-3 ALA, omega-3 SDA, omega-6 LA and omega-6 GLA fatty acids. Ahiflower is also extremely eco-friendly, as it is 100% sustainable– unlike any marine oils. Grown only in select fields within the United Kingdom, Ahiflower is actually the most environmentally friendly omega-3 supplement. Because Ahiflower is up to 400% more effectively metabolized than flax in humans, it requires less land and less water to deliver the healthy omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids we all need, than other plant-sourced powerhouses.
If you’re not currently using an Omega, here is why you need to try Ahiflower Oil:
There are over 30,000 scientific studies that support that essential fatty acids, like the ones Ahiflower provides, are vital for a healthy body and mind. These fatty acids improve cardiovascular health bylowering cholesterol levels, eliminating plaque, and lowering blood pressure. As a result, the risk for heart disease decreases dramatically. As omega 3 fatty acids may also reduce joint pain and eliminate inflammation, omega-6 fatty acids may further reduce inflammation, lower LDL cholesterol levels, and protect against heart disease.
Do I reallyneed it?
As humans, our bodies cannot “make” essential omega fatty acids ourselves. This is why we have to get them from our diet. Lindsey Cole, of Nature’s Crops International, says, “Virtually every cell in our body requires omegas in their structure, especially in cell walls and membranes. Many modern western diets contain significantly less and significantly different omegas.”
Human clinical trials show that Ahiflower®Oil has up to 4 times better EPA conversion than flaxseed oil.
How will it improve my horse?
Horses evolved to get their daily omegas through fresh pasture grazing, not fish sources. Ahiflower Oil is a safe, balanced, and superior plant-seed omega 3-6-9 supplement oil backed by clinical trial data in performance horses. Horse owners seeking a complete omega to improve exercise recovery, joint and ligament health, coat luster, and stress responsiveness choose Springtime’s Ahiflower Oil.
These inflammatory-fighting fatty acids will support natural joint health, which can increase stride length, support cardiovascular health, shine the coat, maintain organ and brain function, as well as regulate the body after strenuous exercise.
It is more effective than flaxseed oil, as it contains stearidonic acid, to aid in a faster bodily conversion, so the body has the chance to utilize all of the nutritional benefits.
Ahiflower is a great, economical alternative to gamma oryzanol. While both products contain essential fatty acids, Ahiflower will be a lower calorie product. In comparison, gamma will further brighten the coat and grow muscle, as well as add weight.
