Sachi Curcuma Powder
Sachi Cúrcuma gluten free Powder is an ideal superfood due to its many potential health benefits from combining Incaliving’s organic Curcumin and our organic Sacha Inchi protein powder. This superfood is perfect for the keto diet or to supplement for wheat flour.
We begin making our Sachi Cúrcuma gluten free powder by utilizing Incaliving’s organic and all natural turmeric root extract, which is grown and at the foothills of the Andes in Pampa Camona. It is here in the province of Chanchamayo, known in Peru as the “Heart of the Jungle”, that the incredibly nutrient rich soil mixes with the perfect altitude and weather to help grow our all-natural and organic turmeric root extract with 99% curcuminoids. Incaliving is one of the few companies offering this high percentage of curcuminoids, which means some of the purest and most potent curcumin on the market.
This incredible superfood has been utilized throughout the world as a medicinal herb for thousands of years because the turmeric root potentially contain rich bioactive medicinal compounds that are possibly linked to a range of health benefits-with the most notable of these being curcumin. It is curcumin that gives the root a vivid and yellowish color and is from a group of active compounds called curcuminoids. Research is also showing how black pepper can help potentate the possible health benefits of curcumin and turmeric, which is why Incaliving’s Sachi Curcuma already has black pepper added.
Incaliving then mixes this all-natural and organic curcumin with our all-natural gluten free Sancha inchi flour (click here for more information about the product and other health benefits), which is made from selecting and harvesting the perfect seeds, which some scientists believe are grown right in Perú.
Incaliving’s organically grown and all-natural Sacha Inchi protein powder is derived from the harvested seed of the sacha inchi tree native to South America. This tree thrives in the fertile and nutrient rich soil of the Amazon jungles because it is grown at the ideal altitudes between 1,900-2,900ft. It is here in the Amazonian jungle that researchers are helping to confirm what the Incas have known for nearly 3000 years, that sacha inchi can really help to impact health by simply consuming daily some of the highest concentrations of plant Omega 3s available.
Next, the seeds are dried, and keeping in the same time honored tradition as the ancient Incas, are then cold pressed, which is utilized to create Incaliving’s all-natural, organic and cold pressed virgin Sacha Inchi Oil (click here for more details regarding Sacha Inchi Oil and its health benefits). Conscience of the potential uses of the remaining sacha inchi paste, it is then heated slightly to help maximize the health benefits. Cooking at the ideal temperature will not only enhance the natural flavor of the sacha inchi paste it will also potentate the health benefits.
Because we strive for the purest and most potent superfoods, Incaliving’s Sachi Curcuma is then packaged at the source and then transported via plane to our US distribution center. By packaging at the source, an expensive process many companies wouldn’t consider, we can maintain the highest overall quality better than our competitors’ products because potency is lost the longer it remains unpackaged, in transit and sitting.
Amazing Potential Health Benefits
According to some researchers, curcumin may help reduce oxidative stress, which occurs when there are too many free radicals in your body and not enough antioxidants to help cleanse them. In addition, curcumin may also contribute to stimulating antioxidant enzymes in the body that may help in the fight against cell aging and neurodegeneration. Antioxidants are so vital since free radicals can damage proteins and even DNA, which may lead to long-term, low-grade and possibly chronic health issues and why curcumin could potentially help in many ailments.
Next, Curcumin may contribute to aiding in the fight against Alzheimer’s and dementia because curcumin may help with increasing the levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is a growth hormone necessary for healthy brain activity. BDNF is a key molecule involved in learning and memory because it stimulates the growth of new neurons in your brain. Curcumin has also seen potential links as a natural antidepressant and thanks to the many possible ways it can help with brain, it is a great way to improve mental and brain health.
Curcumin may help suppress the growth of fat tissue and aid in weight loss because it may be linked to inhibiting new blood vessel growth, called angiogenesis, which is necessary to build fat tissue. This is great news for those battling weight issues or just trying to be fit while managing weight.
Although inflammation is a natural process of the body for necessary repair and healing, long-lasting or out of control inflammation has been connected to possible health problems, like heart disease and obesity. Because curcumin can help suppress molecules that play a big role in causing inflammation, it might help ease exercise-induced inflammation of the joints, muscle soreness and aiding the fight of possible chronic diseases linked to inflammation, like arthritis. It could also aid in recovery for sports athletes as a study found “Curcumin and bromelain may also provide a recovery benefit during the competitive season”.
Not only is curcumin possibly helping with inflammation, so to will the omega 3s found naturally in sachs inchi. Together these two anti-inflammatories work to help potentially reduce the inflammation of the joints and muscle soreness from exercising while possibly aiding in the fight against chronic diseases linked to inflammation.
Additionally, since curcumin may potentially help in lowering blood pressure, imagine the possible impacts of Sachi Curcuma because sacha inchi could also contribute to heart health and may assist in lowering blood pressure.

Similar to some of the weight loss properties in curcumin, sacha inchi also may help in the fight against weight gain. Fiber (linked to gastrointestinal health) represents approximately 75% of the carbohydrates in sacha inchi seeds, and more research is supporting the idea that when it comes to diet, fiber-rich whole food sources of carbohydrates are superior to refined carbohydrates.
Next, because sacha Inchi seeds are high in antioxidants gamma-tocopherol and phenolic compounds, they may help protect the body from aging faster than natural as antioxidants help to fight harmful free radicals.
Additionally, Sacha Inchi contains a balance of the fatty acids Omegas 3, 6 and 9, which when coming from a renewable plant source could be just as effective as fish oil according to more and more research.
Incredibly, our flour contains about 7g of proteins and that is so important for the body’s hair, nails and muscle maintenance and growth. Plant proteins have also been shown by scientists to potentially “prevent the onset of risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease, i.e., hypercholesterolemia and hypertension, in humans”.
Amazingly, there are approximately 6,700mg of pure Omega 3s, which is so important in diets because of the numerous potential health benefits. For instance, it may help in improve the appearance of the skin, while also reducing wrinkles, sun spots and blemishes. Also, sacha inchi’s omegas may have soothing anti-inflammatory properties that help prevent psoriasis and eczema.
Next, sacha inchi could possibly help in reducing cholesterol simply by replacing bad fats. There are more and more studies regarding cholesterol. In fact, sacha inchi may help lower the LDL as well potentially increase the HDL- after four months of an experiment between sacha inchi and sunflower, it was the Inca Peanut impacting and raising the HDL the most.
