The Richest Source of Omega 3


Dr. Oz calls them Inca Peanuts, at National Nutrition we call them Savi Seeds which are all just fancy names for Sacha Inchi Seeds!

They taste like nuts, but they're not nuts! Here's why SaviSeeds are called a superfood: Sacha inchi seeds are the richest source of Omega 3 on the planet! At 7000mg of heart-healthy Omega 3 per one ounce serving, they offer 13 times more Omega 3 than an ounce of wild salmon - without having to deal with unpleasant fishy flavors and aftertastes! SaviSeeds are an exceptional source of plant-based protein with 8 grams of protein per ounce – more than most nuts and seeds. SaviSeed is a complete protein source which is rich in both essential and non-essential amino acids. A great nutritional snack when you're on the go.

What is a SaviSeed (Inca Peanut)?
When we say SaviSeed, we mean premium, organic sacha inchi seeds – the super food of the ancient Inca peoples. Not just your average seed, sacha inchi seeds are native to the Amazon rainforest and have been cultivated and consumed for centuries in Peru. SaviSeeds are the fruit of sacha inchi plants, herbaceous vines that produce star-shaped green pods which yield edible seeds - SaviSeeds. Our premium SaviSeeds are sustainably and organically grown and proudly produced in partnership with indigenous Peruvian farmers.

History
SaviSeed brings the wonders of an ancient Peruvian food source to you. Also known as the Inca Peanut, sacha inchi's scientific name is Plukenetia volubilis. Sacha inchi has been known by the natives of Peru and other indigenous peoples of the Amazon for centuries. Historians believe the plant has probably been used by the Incas over 3000 years ago, which is evident from the interpretation of the plant on vessels in Incan tombs.

Sacha inchi has been used traditionally by communities in the Amazon in different meals, such as the inchicapi, a regional soup and as cooked seeds ground up in a sauce. The oil and roasted seeds are common ingredients in cities and towns throughout Peru's jungle. It is also used externally by Peruvian people as a rejuvenating cream applied on the skin. This treasure of the Amazon has a rich history which you can now have access to in the form of SaviSeed – the best tasting, richest source of Omega 3!

Total Nutrients
SaviSeeds are rich in nutrients - making them a healthy but indulgent snack. Here's why they are called a superfood:

Omega 3
Sacha inchi seeds are the richest source of Omega 3 on the planet! At 7000mg of heart-healthy Omega 3 per one ounce serving, they offer 13 times more Omega 3 than an ounce of wild salmon - without having to deal with unpleasant fishy flavors and aftertastes!

Protein
SaviSeeds are an exceptional source of plant-based protein with 8 grams of protein per ounce – more than most nuts and seeds. SaviSeed is a complete protein source which is rich in both essential and non-essential amino acids. This highly digestible protein is very useful in tissue regeneration and muscle development, and it's easily digestible… no irritation, gas, or acidity.

Tryptophan
This ancient food source is also a particularly abundant source of tryptophan, an amino acid that can help promote a positive mood – containing about 29 mg of tryptophan per gram of protein, which is more than 8 times higher than roasted turkey.

Antioxidants
Sacha inchi seeds have a high concentration of powerful natural antioxidants like Vitamin E, which helps to ward off cardiovascular disease and cancer by protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals.

Gluten-free
All those with gluten intolerances and allergies can also enjoy this nutritious and yummy snack! SaviSeeds are tested and approved to meet international guidelines for gluten free status.

Fiber
A mere one ounce serving of SaviSeed will easily provide you with 5 grams of dietary fiber, which is 20% of recommended daily intake.

Certified Organic
SaviSeeds are organically certified by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), meaning that no chemical fertilizers, synthetic pesticides or herbicides are used during production. Precautions are taken even during transportation and storage to avoid cross contamination between organic sacha inchi and any crops that may not be organic.

Omega 3
SaviSeeds are the richest source of Omega 3 on the planet! At 7000mg of heart-healthy Omega 3 per one ounce serving, they offer 13 times more Omega 3 than an ounce of wild salmon - and with SaviSeeds, you'll have no fishy aftertaste!

Since Omega 3 is not naturally produced by the body, it's essential to consume Omega-3 rich foods like SaviSeed to reduce inflammation and promote heart, joint and mental health , and even help to prevent cancer and disease.

Not only are SaviSeeds amazingly rich in Omega 3, they also contain Omega 6 and 9 in an optimally balanced ratio. Modern day diets have significantly raised levels of Omega 6, as it is found in grains, poultry and eggs. Consuming foods like SaviSeed with higher levels of Omega-3 will balance fatty acid ratios for optimum health.

So how does SaviSeed compare to other commonly known sources of Omega 3? This chart is a great reference - comparing SaviSeed to seeds, nuts and fish! As you can see below, one ounce of Oh Natural SaviSeeds contain 7000 mg of Omega 3 which exceeds even flax seeds' 6400 mg. While the numbers are close, SaviSeeds are far easier to consume as they don't require grinding to access nutrients and are far more snackable!
