Ahiflower® Oil is a proprietary, refined seed oil from the plant Buglossoides arvensis, in the Boraginacea family. It is the richest naturally-occurring source of omega-3 Stearidonic Acid (SDA) and an excellent source of omega-6 Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). Ahiflower Oil has a 4:1 ratio of omega-3 to omega-6, which supports a heart-healthy dietary intake. Most published health resources state that increasing the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio is ideal in the Western diet, which tends to predominate in omega-6 and/or saturated fats.
Just like fish oil, Ahiflower Oil is widely taken as a soft-gel daily supplement to “top up” your daily intake of omegas.
Background / Origin
Ahiflower (official name: Buglossoides arvensis) is an oilseed crop. It is a naturally wild and now cultivated agricultural crop, grown by trained farmers in the United Kingdom. Ahiflower produces small seeds that contain an oil that is naturally rich in essential omegas.
These seeds are pressed to produce a superior omega-rich, healthy oil with a higher quality and higher quantity of omegas than any other seed oil ever discovered.

As many people including vegetarians, vegans, flexitarians and others concerned about sustainability in nutrition turn their awareness to healthy omega fatty acid sources, plant-based Ahiflower® stands out. Ahiflower oil, also called “refined Buglossoides arvensis oil” on product Nutrition Facts panels, is a new dietary oil extracted from seeds of a regeneratively grown non-GMO crop by the same name. It brings a complete and balanced omega profile from the most bioavailable omega complex, for which Ahiflower is one-of-a-kind among natural plant sources. Apart from its uniquely rich and balanced omega profile, it has a clean and appealing taste, and it has clinically proven-health benefits.
