Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids mostly derived from fish like salmon, tuna, sardines, and halibut. Omega-6 fatty acids, on the other hand, are mostly obtained from vegetable oil such as linoleic acid. Upon consumption, the body transforms linoleic acid into gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is most commonly found in plant-sourced oils such as borage oil.
NOW Foods Super Omega 3-6-9 uses only the prime sources of both Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. The right blend of fish oil concentrate, borage oil, and organic flax seed oils produces a comprehensive fatty acid supplement. A small quantity of top-quality Vitamin E (20 IU) has been added to this ratio to act as an organic antioxidant preservative. This amount is nutritionally important unlike what is being used by other manufacturers.
The American diet is mostly comprised of an excessive amount of omega-6 fatty acids from meat, resulting in Omega-3 deficiency. That is the reason why Omega-3 supplements are much more popular on the market. However, for vegetarians, the elderly, or people who are on strict low-fat diets, the deficiency of both Omega-3 and 6 exists. NOW Super Foods Omega 3-6-9 addresses that particular group by offering a balanced formula of essential fatty acids.
Omega-3 and Omega-6 are both necessary for the proper functioning of the cardiovascular, nervous, and immune systems. Known benefits include the lowering of cholesterol levels, improving blood circulation, and alleviating symptoms of arthritis.
The Omega-9 Oleic Acid has shown to support a healthy vascular system. Recent studies indicate that Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of chronic heart diseases. However, the FDA declared that the evidence in these studies is not conclusive.
