Award-winning plant-based super omega supplement Ahiflower is available for the first time in Australia and New Zealand.
Omega 3 and 6 are needed for the proper functioning of joints, skin, heart, brain, and hormonal regulation. But according to PhytoLove, most individuals receive too much omega 6, which can increase inflammation that has been implicated with a range of cognitive, cardiovascular, and other health issues.
PhytoLove says Ahiflower is a vegan-friendly, non-GMO dietary oil with more efficient conversion to EPA and DHA than from flax, chia and hemp oils, whilst providing a wider array of beneficial omega metabolites than algal or fish oils, which can have limitations.
For example, the company says fish can contain dioxins, PCBs, and heavy metals, particularly mercury, whilst some plant-based oils may lack the balance of omegas 3, 6 and 9.
“This problem is exacerbated in people who eat animal products or high amounts of processed foods which can block the omega gatekeeper’ enzyme,” says Phytolove Co-founder Camilla Brinkworth.
Brinkworth claims to have suffered debilitating arthritic pain for several years since she was 19 before transitioning to a plant-based diet.
According to Nature’s Crop International, each acre of Ahiflower produces as much omega 3 as 500,000 anchovies, and each bottle containing one month’s supply provides as much omega-rich oil as 300 anchovies.
“I’m excited to bring this incredible product to Australia to help people achieve health and happiness,” said Brinkworth.
PhytoLove says Ahiflower oil capsules are currently available to buy online and will soon be available in stores across Australia.
