About Ahiflower®

After more than a decade of research and natural plant breeding techniques, the experts at Nature’s Crops International have developed AHIFLOWER Oil, a proprietary branded form of Buglossoides arvensis seed oil. AHIFLOWER is exclusively available from Nature’s Crops.

AHIFLOWER Oil is the richest commercially available plant source of omega-3 stearidonic acid (SDA) known, offering health care practitioners and their patients the opportunity to incorporate a sustainable, 
non-genetically modified, vegan source of omega-3 fatty acids into their diets. AHIFLOWER Oil also contains therapeutically beneficial omega-6 gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Since SDA and GLA both bypass the rate-limiting step involving the liver enzyme delta-6 desaturase, our bodies metabolize them far more efficiently than other plant-derived omegas such as alpha linolenic acid (ALA). AHIFLOWER Oil therefore offers a far more efficient omega-3+6+9 solution.

Ahiflower oil seed is grown each year by Natures Crops International under exclusive contracts with independent farmers in the United Kingdom. The resulting crude oil from the seed is processed at NCI's dedicated refinery in Prince Edward Island (Canada). NCI's CropAssured 365® identity preservation and quality assurance program guarantees full lot-based traceability from “soil to oil naturally” and eliminates supply chain custody gaps more typically seen in commodity oils.

Ahiflower crops improve biodiversity and create new specialty crop revenue opportunities for UK growers—an inherently sustainable and scalable model for years to come. In fact, every acre of Ahiflower crop produces the same amount of omega-rich oil as contained in 80,000 sardines used to make fish oil. As depleted marine fisheries struggle to meet rising demand, every bottle of GreensFirst Pro Ahiflower Oil helps improve overall sustainability in the omega supply chain. Further, we assure strict purity through 3rd party testing of every batch for any potential source of contamination.
