The seeds of the Perilla plant contain high levels of linoleic and linolenic acids.
The Omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid makes up the greatest share at about 60%. This is even more than linseed oil, which with about 50% is usually taken to be the oil richest in alpha linolenic acid. Omega-3 fatty acids from plant sources have a decisive advantage. Plant fatty acids oxidise in the body at a slower rate that those from fish oil.
Clinical and experimental studies have shown that Omega-3 fatty acids exhibit numerous positive nutritional traits. They have, for example, positive effects on the heart and blood vessels, and are suitable as a supplement to a cholesterol-aware diet. The addition of the free radical catcher vitamin E further bolsters the beneficial effects of Perilla oil.
