So every once in awhile Dr. Oz introduces something to the world and our store gets visitors we would never have pictured to come to the store. The best part is they remind us of things we forgot about! Some of it we don't really jump on the band wagon with but in this case it reminded us the glory of Sacha Inca!
ancient Incas of Peru were well acquainted with the nutritional force
behind sacha inca. Cultivated over 3,000 years ago! Exceptionally plentiful in beneficial
fats (14 grams per ounce), unsaturated fatty acids (linoleum,
linolenic), protein (nine grams per ounce) and vitamins A and E, sacha
inca was an important staple of the Incan diet. Inca peanut, otherwise known as sacha inca, is a powerful superfood
chock-full of omega-3s, protein and fiber. As an inflammation fighter,
sacha inca is extraordinary. The brain, bones and joints all benefit
from the remarkable nutrition of this little known edible. These
Amazonian nuts are also a formidable protector against cancer, heart
disease and free-radicals.
We carry the Sacha Inca Protein Powder, which has over 60% complete protein, ranking 98 out
of 100 on the Protein Efficiency Ratio and containing all the essential
amino acids needed to build muscle. It is also known for its high
concentration of Omega-3 fatty acids which can help improve joint health
and muscle recovery. In addition, the high levels of calcium help
support healthy eyes, skin, teeth and bones.Try adding 1-2 tablespoons to your smoothie,desserts, cereals or just pop it in water and hop to the gym!
