Perilla Oil, extracted from the plant Perilla fructescens, is a rich source of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is a precursor to the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. ALA is similar to fish oil in its benefits, but without any unpleasant aftertaste. ALA may support the health of many organs and body systems, including the cardiovascular system, immune system, skin, brain, and joints. Population and animal studies suggest an association between high dietary intake of ALA and breast and colon health.

This is a good product for overall health, as well as for several specific health problems. When I first started using it, there was a slight adjustment, because of how well it helps control sugar, and I was used to getting excess sugar.
For whatever reason(s), this oil didn't do good things for me - similar issues with flax. Bloating, lethargy and felt like rubbish, though I can tolerate walnuts. Flax is high in plant hormones and salicylates - perilla is likely to be as well. I do not recommend this for anyone who has sensitivity issues of any kind (e.g. aspirin, salicylates, phenols, immune system, hormonal, etc).

After recovering from a stomach infection and heavy antiobitic usage, this product has helped to heal the stomach (inconjuction with probiotic and L Glutamine usage) and reduce food intolernaces / reactions to eating the wrong thing. Initially I wasn't a believer that product would work... To my surprise it did work and rather quickly too! I noticed reduced symptoms within 2 days and within 3 weeks significant improvement in being able to eat a wider variety of food. I can now consume wine - my sulphite intolerance is virtually gone. My gluten intolerance has reduced, whilst still present symptoms are not as bad and are continually improving. This product definately improves gastro health.
