Sacha inchi is a native oleaginous plant, also known as “Maní del Inca” and is a very important source of Omega 3.
Omega 6 and Omega 9 oils are easily found in the food we consume daily; whereas Omega 3 essential oils are very rare in nature and are essential for the proper functioning of our body. Sacha Inchi also contains vitamin A, vitamin E and high protein content.
Resulting of its high nutrional value sacha inchi contains proteins, amino acids,
essential fatty acids (omegas 3, 6 and 9) and vitamin E (tocopherols and tocotrienols compared with other seeds such as peanuts, palm, corn, soybean, sunflower.
During pregnancy, the mother transfers her fatty acids to the baby to help shape the brain, this may cause postpartum depression due to decreased levels of these acids in your body.
Postpartum depression is treated effectively with foods rich in fatty acids to supplement their diet. The advantage of consuming sacha inchi is that, besides being antidepressants, fatty acids are completely harmless, without causing side effects.
It is a great natural antioxidant by itself.
It helps weight loss through appetite control. A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry in 2002 found that sacha inchi is unusually high in tryptophan, which is essential for the production of serotonin (a chemical in the nervous system involved in the regulation of appetite) amino acid.
In theory, sacha inchi can help promote weight loss through an increase production of serotonin and as a result, keeping the appetite under control and reducing food intake.
