There is excitement in the air and it's not just because of the exciting Black Friday sales YL will have. Rumor is that there will be over 40 products featured (Quick Order only) for some great stocking stuffers and gifts!
But today, TODAY they released a new product. Well more of a re-do of a very popular product. MINDWISE! MindWise is a dietary supplement that used to combine the sacha inchi nut with a proprietary essential oil blend to support both brain and heart health. I am personally excited because I heard that they have improved the berry flavor, which was a stumbling point for me using consistently. And it is no longer from the nut itself but the sacha inchi seed oil so that will make it less "oily on the palate" as Lindsey Elmore said. They also made it covenant in little "to-go" packets that you can take with you for travel and it does not require refrigeration like the old formula.
You can call it CardioMind to remind you of what it does, but many of my friends here have complained about neurological problems and mental fog. Memory loss and lack of focus? Maybe we need to do a challenge with this new product and give it a try. Here is the research that I found:
What is A Sacha Inchi Nut?
I like to know as much as I can about anything I new I start. This is what I discovered about the sacha inchi nut (Plukenetia volubilis), which is native to the Peruvian Amazon. It is also referred to as the Inca Peanuts, Sacha nut, mountain peanut or Inca Nuts.
The sacha inchi nut is touted as an amazing superfood. It is rich in omega fatty acids 3,6, and 9, protein, fiber and antioxidants.
The sacha inchi plant grows in the Amazonian rainforest on a vine with star shaped seed pods, so they are technically seeds not nuts. They have been a large part of the Incan diet for over 3000 years. Young Living uses the seed’s precious oil for the MindWise supplement.
"The seeds of inchi have high protein (27%) and oil (35 – 60%) content, and the oil is rich in the essential fatty acids omega-3 linolenic acid (≈45-53% of total fat content) and omega-6 linoleic acid (≈34-39% of fat content), as well as non-essential omega-9 (≈6-10% of fat content)."
The unique thing about the sacha inchi nut and why it was chosen was because of the high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids with the high percentage of desirable omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid). Medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and pure essential oils are added to complete the MindWise oil blend. So essentially it is a vegetarian form of omega-3 fatty acids, along with Vitamin D3, and bioindentical CoQ-10.
