Omega 3-6-9 is a balanced blend of plant derived essential fatty acids (EFAs) from flaxseed oil,
Evening Primrose, Canola Oil, Black Currant and Pumpkin Seed. Each serving typically contains:
Omega-3 oils: Alpha linolenic acid (ALA) - 900mg
Omega-6 oils: Linoleic acid and Gamma linolenic acid(GLA) - 530mg
Omega-9 oils: Oleic acid - 350mg
Omega Oils: Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) Western diets contain very little omega-3, not only because we do not eat adequate amounts of oily fish but because hydrogenation, the process used to give foods a long shelf life, removes them.
This process also inhibit the body's conversion of omega-6 to GLA and CLA. In addition,
changes in farming practices have meant that meat and dairy products contains less plant omegas 3 and 6.
Omega 3 EFAs have been the subject of a multitude of scientific studies showing that they not only promote cardiovascular health, but also mood and cognition, as well as skin conditions.
Omega 6 EFAs are involved in a complex interaction that leads to the production of prostoglandins in the body. The body uses prostoglandins to control inflammation, dilate blood vessels and regulate immune function.
Omega 9 is a monounsaturated fat not considered essential but it does play beneficial roles in human health
