About 5-6 years ago, my father told me that he was interested in growing Sacha Inchi tea. Finally, he pulled things together and received a license to harvest this particular tea in Northern Thailand. The fruit looks like heart or star shape, depending on how you look at it.
How exactly might these delicious seeds help your health?
Consuming sacha inchi over a four month period resulted in a drop in the patients’ LDL and overall cholesterol levels as well as an increase in HDL – the good type of cholesterol.
This effect owes a great deal to the presence of essential omega-3 fatty acids which are known to have cardio-protective benefits.
High in Serotonin which is a neurotransmitter which is believed to help calm the nerves, boost the mood and deal with anxiety, depression and stress.
BRAIN HEALTHBecause so much of the brain is made up of fat, it needs healthy fats of the type contained in sacha inchi to resupply the cells and help to fight against inflammation.
Antioxidants also have an anti-aging effect, not only on your internal parts but also on the skin. They can help prevent wrinkles and keep your skin looking younger for much longer.
JOINT HEALTH AND ARTHRITIS
Sacha inchi may be an effective food when it comes to dealing with the pain of arthritis and rheumatism.

What it tastes like?
Sacha Inchi tea has a mild flavor with a nutty finish. Since we can customize how we want this tea to be made, our mix has 50% leaves and 50% nut shells. Nut shell is where most of the nutrients come from. The leaf helps with the color of the tea. My father holds a Thai Certified Organic but to convert to US Certified Organic is too expensive for us to do so. We decided to leave it as it is.
