We have a particular affinity for the small batch quality health items from Korea from our salts to the highest potency fungus and pine pollens. We have searched the highest grade organic Perilla Oil has the unsurpassed level of omega-3 in the plant world, higher than all other oils. The plant oil extracted from the black seeds of Perilla frutescens supplies our oil with 65% ALA (alpha-linoleic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid) and around 12% omega-6 fatty acids.

Scientists have been wondering at the high fat diets of indigenous peoples that do not result in heart disease and narrowed their research down to the omega-3 fatty acids that lower triglyceride levels, lessening heart attack and stroke. These fatty acids are the components of fat, as amino acids are of protein and of the best of the omega 3 acids is eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA and docosahexaenoic acid or DHA and they are primary found in fish oils. Other omega 3s include alpha-linolenic acid or ALA found in vegetables. ALA is converted into EPA nd DHA as they are incorporated into the cell membranes, and they are believed to control inflammation, sticking of blood platelets and aiding in other cellular processes. Perilla Oil has shown to contain about 50-60% alpha-linolenic acid and the peer reviewed studies of its clinical applications are very positive but we can not site them here as we are not making any medical claims. Those interested can study the Japanese studies on colon and rectal health as well as the studies on the Mediterranean diet which is high in ALA, with conclusions that omega 3 fatty acids guard against irregular heart beat, hep arteries contract nd relax on signal inhibit abnormal clots and prevent heart attacks.

These same studies also indicate perilla uses for colitis and asthma as well as weight control. It is especially useful for vegetarians and vegans who need to get good fats into their diet. If you take Perilla oil, be sure to tell your physician, and be aware that the ALA in Perilla oil may interact with aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), ginkgo, garlic, and other herbs. The symptoms of such an interaction may include increased bruising and nosebleeds. Those taking warfarin or other blood thinners, or those soon to undergo surgery, should exercise extra caution with Perilla, which may thin the blood. It is also great for skin and hair and nails internal and external.
