1 ECUOMEGA THE BEST BALANCE THE BEST BALANCE GENERAL DESCRIPTION. Sacha Inchi (Plukenetia volubilis linneo) is a native oil plant in the Amazon region of Ecuador, but in the last twenty years plantations have spread throughout the country, especially in the warm and humid areas of the Ecuadorian coast. The plant has been cultivated by indigenous people for centuries, has been part of the diet of ancient local (ethnic) groups and eaten as "frijoleada" (grilled beans). The Sacha Inchi is a climbing plant that grows up to two meters high. The leaves have a length of 10 to 12 cm, a width of 8 to 10 cm and blooms after five months of planting. The fruits are stars consisting of four, five and six capsules containing the seeds. The fruits are green, but become blackish brown at maturity. The seeds are cm in diameter and weigh about 1.2 to 1.6 grams, are oval shaped. Their seeds contain approximately 36 to 40% oil and have been used in human diets within the region. Recently there has been a growing interest in the NUTRACEUTICAL properties of Sacha Inchi. Sacha Inchi belongs to: Family: Euphorblaceous Genre: Plukenetis Species: Volubilis The fruit is commonly known in the Andean region as Inca peanuts, Inca Inchi, Sacha Inchi, Sacha peanuts, Inca peanuts. The virgin oil of Sacha Inchi is obtained from the seeds of the plant of the same name (Plukenetia volubilis Linneo) by mechanical process and does not imply any chemical treatment in its extraction or refining. Sacha Inchi oil is the richest known vegetable source of polyunsaturated fatty acids: linoleic acid (Omega 6) and alpha linolenic acid (Omega 3) which are essential for humans since they can not be synthesized in the body and must be Ingested in food. Sacha Inchi oil is remarkably different from other vegetable oils, with a high proportion

2 of polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as soybean oil, sunflower oil, olive oil, etc. Sacha Inchi is a rich source of polyunsaturated fatty acids: oleic acid (35%), linolenic acid (48%) and mono unsaturated acid, oleic acid (9%), and naturally contain vitamin E. The oil has an exceptionally low content of saturated fatty acids (7%) which makes it a very healthy product. Categorization of Sacha Inchi Oil The extra virgin vegetable oil of Sacha Inchi, is cataloged as NUTRACEUTICO because it is a natural product that has beneficial actions on the organism. It comes from sustainable crops, non-transgenic plants, is ancestral and is considered a safe product. Oil composition of Sacha Inchi. Sacha Inchi de ECUOMEGA RANGUPACORP is a vegetable oil with more than 99.5% fat, composed of 99.9% of dry materials, with very low moisture content or insoluble materials.

Omega 3 is beneficial for the heart and among its positive effects can be mentioned, among others: It helps to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, consequently favors the reduction of blood pressure. These fatty acids can also reduce the risks and symptoms of other disorders, including stroke. Omega 6.- It is a polyunsaturated fat, just like Omega 3 is essential for health, because the human body can not produce it. For this reason, they should be incorporated through food and dietary supplements. They are fundamental in the formation of structure and in the functionality of the nervous and visual system of humans. The binding of Omega 3 and Omega 6 constitute more than 30% of the lipid structure of the brain and the cones and rods of the retina. The individual needs the Omega 6 to act correctly among its main functions are: Improve brain function Regulates metabolism

The amount of total unsaturated fatty acids (poly and mono unsaturated) in EcuOmega oil is about 92.9%, while the amount of total saturated fatty acids is approximately 7.1%. The polyunsaturated fatty acids (83.0%) are mainly alpha linolenic acid (48%) and linoleic acid (35%). The monounsaturated fatty acid is about 9.5%.

PROFILE OF FATTY ACIDS EcuOmega oil produced by RANGUPACORP determined the composition of fatty acids with several standardized methods. Tocopherols and tocotrienols were determined in vegetable oils and fat by high performance liquid chromatography (EN ISO 9936) The activity of vitamin E (Calculus based on "Food and Nutrition Board and Institute of Medicine - Washington DC, National Academy and Press, 2000) Gas chromatography to determine triglycerides in molecular weight (IUPAC 2323). Determination of individual and total steroid content (NF-EN ISO 12228_Partie 1) Preparation and analysis of the methyl esters of fatty acids with gas chromatography (NF EN ISO and EN ISO 5508) cis-trans.

5 Omega 9 -. It is a monounsaturated fat, also known as oleic acid. Unlike the omega 3 and 6 the body produces it and yet they are beneficial in food. It has been proven that omega 9, can contribute to decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. They have been shown to raise HDL ( "good") cholesterol and lower LDL ( "bad") cholesterol; Therefore, facilitate the elimination of plaque buildup in the arterial walls that may be the cause of a heart attack or stroke. THE COMBINATION OF THE OMEGAS Although omega-3 and omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids have different and equal functions within the body, it is clearly demonstrated that it is important to provide the body with balanced proportions of essential and non-essential fatty acids to maintain good heart health and general well-being. According to the American of Nutrition and Dietetic, adults should incorporate in the diet 20-35% of calories in the form of fats, avoiding saturated and trans fat, increasing the intake of omegas. OIL OF SACHA INCHI ECUOMEGA ECUOMEGA is the first oil of SACHA INCHI Ecuadorian, is a 100% Natural oil without persivantes, which comes in presentation of 250 ml in glass jar with properties of protection of the light to ensure its long duration and toasting The highest safety at the time of consuming it. The oil is manufactured 100% by skilled Ecuadorian labor, meeting quality standards. The process of extracting the oil is by cold pressing, which makes it an extra virgin quality oil. Sacha Inchi oil has been cataloged and certified as a safe consumption oil or GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) by the U.S; Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 2014
