Perilla oil is a dietary supplement containing alpha linoleic acid (omega 3) which makes it an excellent source of unsaturated plant-based fatty acids. It contains more than 60% of the key omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid. As food components, omega-3 fatty acids help regulate cholesterol levels. The cold-pressed oil from the seeds of the perilla plant is available in capsules.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for human beings. The human body cannot generate them itself which is why they must be absorbed with food on a regular basis. Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce high blood lipids caused by diet. They help keep blood lipids (cholesterol, triglycerides) in balance, which helps prevent deposits in the vascular wall, keeping blood vessels healthy. The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends increasing consumption of alpha linolenic acid (ALA).
The oil from the seeds of the perilla plant contains a very high percentage of polyunsaturated fatty acids. In nutritional terms, these are characterised by a favourable ratio to each other: Omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid (ALA) : Omega-6 fatty acid linoleic acid : Omega-9 fatty acid oleic acid = 60 : 15 : 15.
Compared with other plant oils, perilla oil comes out on top as it contains the highest levels of alpha linolenic acid (ALA). The “fish oil fatty acids” eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) can be generated in the body from this key omega-3 fatty acid. A opposed to others, it has the crucial benefit of being less susceptible to oxidation and having no taste.
