Verilla is a supercritically extracted, patented Perilla Seed Oil manufactured from seeds of the Perilla frutescens plant using Valensa’s proprietary Deep Extract® extraction process. It provides high quality ALA (alpha linolenic acid), which is recognized by the Institute of Medicine as being an essential part of the human diet. It offers an optimally desirable 6:1 Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio (the highest naturally occurring seed-based ratio in ALA-rich botanicals). The ALA in this extract promotes down-regulation of inflammation while providing enhanced cardiovascular health benefits.
Increasing evidence supports the ability of ALA Omega-3 fatty acids to address cardiovascular health and other conditions related to chronic inflammation resulting from the overconsumption of Omega-6 rich oils in the diet. In addition, Omega-3 fatty acids are known to aid in the absorption of Astaxanthin, thus improving its bioavailability.
