Herbridge reported that a new type of plant seed oil called "Peony Seed Oil" is sweeping the global Omega-3 market, of which Omega-3 fatty acids are twice more than of fish oil.
According to a new study by Transparency Market Research (TMR), most people think that omega 3 fatty acids extracted from fish oil. But a fact is that it comes from the seaweed the fish eat, and the omega 3 from fish is unsustainable, overfishing and fish farming have serious impacts on the marine environment. The most important is, research shows that most fish caught today contain industrial toxins and pollutants. Non-fish omega 3 fatty acids ingredients inevitably meet the sustainable, Phyto-based requirements.
The report also stated, global sales of fish-free omega-3 ingredients reached US$ 590 million in 2019, and it is expected to up to US$1.3billion in the coming five years. With the increasing demand for nutritional dietary supplements in natural plant ingredients, the fish-free Omega-3 ingredients market has been witnessing healthy growth. Consumers’ awareness about the health problems caused due to the deficiency of omega-3 fatty acids, such as Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), and pay more attention to balance among them in daily diet. In the group of consumers who concern health, the global demand for Omega-3 fatty acids is converting from varieties to sources, this well boosts the growth of Omega-3 ingredients markets.
With the increasing demand for plant replacer to consumers, peony seeds oil is at the cutting edge of the emerging trend. As the only plant seeds oil contains NLT40% high level of （Peony seeds oil vs. Common plant oil in the content of nutritional facts as below tablet), Peony seeds oil is converted into biologically active unsaturated fatty acids in the human body. Which is an abundant source of SDA (SDA contains ALA and GLA), humans will resolve and convert it into EPA & DHA. Unlike traditional plant-derived Omega-3 fatty acids, which contain only ALA (due to the catalytic action of the liver enzyme "fatty acid dehydrogenase" (D6D), ALA has limited efficiency in converting to EPA and DHA in the human body, so eating vegetable oil containing only ALA does not bring similar health benefits to Omega-3 EPA and DHA), consuming peony seed oil rich in SDA can increase EPA levels in tissues more effectively than consuming vegetable oil rich in ALA, because it avoids the above catalytic effects.
The traditional plant-derived Omega-3 fatty acids contain only ALA (due to the catalysis of the liver enzyme "fatty acid dehydrogenase" (D6D), ALA has limited efficiency in converting to EPA and DHA in the human body. Vegetable oil) will not bring similar health residues to Omega-3 EPA and DHA). Eating peony seed oil instead of SDA can increase EPA levels in tissues more effectively than eating vegetable oil instead of ALA because it avoids the aforementioned catalytic effects.
