ALA: The only long-term, sustainable source of omega-3s

ALA: The only long-term, sustainable source of omega-3s

SunChia has the largest concentration of omega-3 fatty acids (63%) found in nature. It contains an omega-3 called alpha linolenic acid (ALA), an essential  fatty acid that the body can’t make on its own. It must come from diet. This isn’t the same omega-3 fat found in fish. ALA is plant based. 

The world’s population is increasing, and is becoming more aware of the huge requirements for

omega-3s and the health problems resulting from its deficiencies. Fish oil supplementation is not the solution because fish supply is under threat of over-exploitation. 

ALA is the only sustainable source of omega-3 for humanity in the long term. SunChia is an opportunity to diversify omega-3 sources, while providing consumers with a sustainable and plant-based source of this essential fatty acid. 

Made from premium chia seeds (Salvia Hispanica L.) with guaranteed traceability, SunChia has an ideal balance of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. In fact, it is the most effective way to rebalance the omega-3 vs. omega-6 ratio in body. This special fatty acid composition gives SunChia seed oil an outstanding position among vegetable oils. It also contains important bioactive substances: tocopherols, polyphenols and phytosterols.

SunChia’s oil is extracted with cold-pressing technology especially adapted for chia, that preserves all the liposoluble nutrients and bioactive components of the oil in it, thanks to a unique filtering system. Temperature is kept at low levels throughout the entire process, with no chemical solvents or diluents added. All this to safeguard the seed’s nutritional characteristics and to ensure low acidity and peroxide levels. 

You can also be assured that SunChia is produced without chemical solvents or diluents, and is free from contaminants. 

Chia oil and ALA have been studied for their benefits related to cardiovascular health (cholesterol and hypertension), immune health as well as hair, skin and nails.
