"The plant-based alternative to fish oils and krill oil"
No other plant-based oil comes close to the nutritional profile of ahiflower oil. Not only is it an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, it also provides a uniquely balanced combination of omega-6 and -9 fatty acids. Derived entirely from plants, Health Ranger Select Ahiflower Oil and Chief Originals Ahiflower Oil Softgels are the perfect plant-based alternatives to fish oils and krill oils.
Both Health Ranger Select Ahiflower Oil and Chief Originals Ahiflower Oil Softgels contain a well-balanced combination of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids that support healthy immunity, vitality and overall wellness. It's made from ahiflowers that are ethically grown by farmers in the U.K. who follow the strict Crop Assured 365® supply-chain requirements to ensure outstanding crop quality and potency. Health Ranger Select Ahiflower Oil can be taken directly or mixed with smoothies, salad dressings, sauces, and other recipes. It tastes slightly nutty, with zero "fishy" taste or smell since it isn't made from fish or krill.
Our ahiflower oil and softgels are gently processed in the USA using patented extraction methods to retain maximum nutrition, and are extensively lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals, and microbiology. They are also vegan, non-GMO, and lab verified for cleanliness and purity.
Ahiflower oil is derived from the seeds of the Buglossoides arvensis plant. Once considered a weed, this herb is now grown sustainably as an agricultural crop and is valued for its remarkable oil and nutritional content. In fact, ahiflower oil is the richest non-fish source of omega fatty acids on the planet.
Other plant-based oils, such as flax, chia, and hemp seed oils, only contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Only around 3-6% of the ALA you consume is converted into docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). In comparison, ahiflower oil contains stearidonic acid (SDA), which is more readily and more efficiently converted into DHA and EPA. Up to 30% of the SDA you consume can be converted into DHA and EPA. These are fatty acids that support healthy brain, immune, nervous, and cardiovascular systems.
Omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 are dietary fats that provide numerous health benefits. Since your body can’t produce most of these healthy fats on its own, you need to consume a balanced ratio of omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids to maintain optimal overall health.
WHY ARE OMEGA
FATTY ACIDS IMPORTANT?
OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential polyunsaturated fats. An essential nutrient is one that your body cannot produce by itself and must be obtained through your diet. Omega-3s offer a diverse range of benefits, including supporting healthy nervous, immune, cognitive, and cardiovascular functions, as well as supporting healthy vision and bones. ALA, DHA, EPA, and SDA are four important forms of omega-3. Your body can convert a small percentage of ALA into DHA and EPA, and it can convert SDA into these same forms of omega-3s with much greater efficiency.
OMEGA-6 FATTY ACIDS
Just like omega-3s, omega-6 fatty acids are essential polyunsaturated fats that you need to get from your food. Although close to omega-3s in terms of structure, omega-6s provide a different set of benefits. They are essential for supporting healthy development, healthy heart function, energy, and immunity. A balance between omega-3s and omega-6s is crucial for overall health. Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linolenic acid (LA) are two types of omega-6 fatty acids that can be found in ahiflower oil.
OMEGA-9 FATTY ACIDS
Unlike other omega fatty acids, omega-9 fatty acids are monounsaturated fats. They are technically not essential because they can be produced by the body, but studies show that boosting your omega-9 levels through diet can offer plenty of health benefits. These good fats support healthy immune, cardiovascular, nervous, and reproductive systems. Omega-9 fatty acids can also support healthy energy levels and help you feel more satiated after a meal. Ahiflower oil contains the omega-9 fatty acid, oleic acid (OA).
Fatty fish are loaded with essential fatty acids, including omega-3 and omega-6. However, if you're following a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, it may be hard to get these fatty acids from your diet. While there are other plant-sourced oils, few contain omega-6 GLA or omega-3 SDA. Flaxseed oil rose to popularity as a plant-based alternative to fish oil, but it does not contain GLA. A study also revealed that EPA conversion is 4x more efficient with ahiflower oil than with flaxseed oil.
The most efficient vegan source
of essential fatty acids
Fortunately, ahiflower oil provides an efficient way to incorporate these essential fatty acids into any diet. In fact, it produces the only plant-based, non-GMO dietary oil with a higher metabolic conversion to EPA than other popular plants, such as flax, chia, hemp, perilla, sancha inchi, and echium. It is also remarkable in providing a uniquely balanced daily combination of essential omega fatty acids.
The best part about ahiflower oil is that it has no fishy taste or smell and carries none of the side effects associated with other non-vegan omega supplements. Plus, it has none of the mercury contamination risks often found in fish oils.
Ahiflower is packed with omega-3 fatty acids known to support healthy bones.
Supports healthy bones
Ahiflower oil is packed with heart-healthy omega-3s. The SDA in ahiflower oil is efficiently metabolized by your body, which leads to heightened levels of EPA in the body. High levels of EPA, combined with a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, are known to support great cardiovascular health.
Maintains a healthy cardiovascular system
Poor intake of DHA may lead to eye problems. Supplementing with ahiflower oil can easily boost your intake of DHA and support healthy, normal vision.
Supports healthy vision
Omega-3 fatty acids are important for a healthy immune system.
Supports a healthy immune system
Regularly consuming healthy doses of DHA and other omega fatty acids can help support the overall health of your body, especially in relation to the functions of your brain and nervous system.
Supports healthy brain function
Omega-6 GLA, one of the prime nutrients found in ahiflower, is notably helpful in maintaining peak joint health. Ahifllower oil also contains high levels of SDA that can help support healthy joints.
Supports healthy joints and mobility
Regular consumption of healthy fats such as those found in ahiflower oil may help uplift your mood.

Mercury contamination – Mercury is a toxic heavy metal that can damage your organs and neurological system. The world’s oceans and other bodies of water contain traces of this toxin, which then accumulate inside the bodies of fish in a process called biomagnification. Because of this, many omega-3 supplements derived from fish may be contaminated with levels of mercury that may be toxic to consume. Ahiflower oil contains none of the mercury contamination risks found in fish oils.
COMMON PROBLEMS WITH OTHER OMEGA SUPPLEMENTS ON THE MARKET
Improper preservation – Many fish oil-based supplements are prone to breaking down more quickly than plant-based omega supplements, especially when they are not properly preserved. Our premium ahiflower oil and oil softgels are gently processed in the USA with patented extraction methods to retain maximum nutrition and freshness.
Unsustainable and untraceable sources – There are claims that fish-derived omega-3s help preserve marine species, but this is often marketing hype. Studies have found that farming fish for supplements actually depletes both the supply and diversity of fish. The practice also contributes to the spread of invasive species that compete with native fishes for resources. In contrast, one acre of ahiflower produces as much oil as 40,000 mackerel or sardines. Since ahiflower is grown by a select number of U.K. farmers and monitored under the country's strict crop production system, each batch of ahiflower can be traced back to the farm from where it came.
Incomplete ratio of omega fatty acids – Obtaining all the fatty acids your body needs can be difficult, since most supplements on the market offer just one or two types of omegas at a time. Moreover, studies have shown that to get the most benefits out of these good fats, you need to consume all of them together at a properly balanced ratio. With Health Ranger Select Ahiflower Oil and Chief Originals Ahiflower Oil Softgels, you get a well-balanced combination of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids that supports optimal immunity, vitality and overall wellness.
Unlike other commercially available omega supplements, Health Ranger Select Ahiflower Oil and Chief Originals Ahiflower Oil Softgels come with no drawbacks. Instead, you get high-quality omega supplements that are:
