WINSTON-SALEM, NC, July 20, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Natures Crops International (NCI), maker of specialty oils for nutraceuticals, food, beverage, personal care and pet nutrition, is pleased to announce that the industry’s first functional gummy nutritional supplements containing Ahiflower® oil are available immediately at Forest remedies, a health and wellness brand that focuses on plant-based ingredients and sustainable packaging.

Ahiflower is a regeneratively grown vegan alternative to fish and flax oil that offers comprehensive omega nutrition and health benefits backed by human clinical studies and the most complete and balanced omega fatty acids.

Forest remedies launched its innovative line of the very first plant-based omega gum dietary supplements with Ahiflower as the main ingredient.

  • Multi Omega 3-6-9 Ahiflower Oil supports the health of the heart, brain, skin and joints. It offers a comprehensive omega profile that is up to 4x more effective than flaxseed oil. Available as vegan gummies or vegan softgels.

  • Elderberry Immun Multi Omega 3-6-9 + Ahiflower Oil supports the immune system and well-being. Ahiflower oil is combined with pure elderberry extract, which is rich in antioxidants and vitamins to support the immune system and overall health and wellbeing.

The Forest Remedies Ahiflower gummies mark another milestone as the latest innovation in new delivery formats for Ahiflower oil. In the past, gummies have posed a number of processing challenges as a vehicle for providing oils with high PUFA content. Natural oxidation challenges can result in noticeable rancidity and off-taste.

Forest remedies uses innovative developments in formulation, blending and processing to minimize oxidation and enable stable dosages and flavor profiles. These methods allowed the company to be the first to hit the market with Ahiflower gummies.

Gummy bears have a wide appeal in all age groups. According to a 2021 study by the Natural Marketing Institute, the number of consumers choosing gums as their preferred form of supplement increased 137% from 2011 to 2020.

The story goes on

Ahiflower is produced sustainably. One hectare of Ahiflower crops produces as much omega-rich oil as 320,000 anchovies and does not contribute to overfishing of marine animals. Ahiflower is part of NCI’s Crop Assured 365 system and allows full traceability.

To expand its commitment to the planet, these dietary supplements are packaged in biodegradable, plastic-free recycled cardboard and environmentally friendly wood cellulose fibers.

Forest remedies Multi Omega 3-6-9 gums and softgels are available here.
