balanced amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs)
promotes healthy heart and brain function*
300 mg EPA and 200 mg DHA from cold-water fish per softgel
40 mg omega-6 GLA from borage oil per capsule
molecular distillation to removes heavy metals and other potential contaminants
While the omega-3 fatty acids have significant health benefits, the omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) offers similar benefits.* Borage oil is a rich source of GLA (higher than evening primrose oil). Omega Plus provides an omega 3:6 ratio designed to provide a healthful balance of these important essential fatty acids.* Because the typical diet contains significantly more omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids, fish oils make up a greater percentage of the product.
Studies yielding positive benefits from a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and GLA demonstrate benefits for bone health as well as the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.* Studies have found a combination of GLA with EPA and DHA helps maintain already normal LDL:HDL ratios and triglyceride levels.*
