THE REAL THING MEGA OMEGA 3+6+9
Omega-3 rich fish oil plus omega-6 and -9 borage oil equals all the good fatty acids you need. It’s an omega all-rounder.
GET THE SPECS
Mega Omega 3+6+9 contains 1 166 mg of omega 3 per dose – mostly EPA and DHA. It also contains 226 mg of the omega 6s gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid, and 74 mg oleic acid (omega 9).
Omegas 3, 6 and 9 are essential for good health (find out exactly how, in our BACKGROUND section). Most Western diets are high in omega 6 and not enough omega 3, requiring supplementation with EPA and DHA.
HOW DO YOU GET THE OMEGA BALANCE?
It’s a family drama. Omega 3 is clearly the favourite child, but what about its omega 6 and omega 9 siblings? Basically, it’s all about balance – particularly the omega 3, omega 6 fatty acid balance.
Modern meals are not fair and square. While omega-3 rich foods feature lower down on the modern menu, omega 6s are everywhere…
- Baked and processed foods
- Egg yolks, meats and animal products
- Vegetable and cooking oils like canola, corn, nut and sunflower oils.
Omega 9 fatty acids are also readily provided by the modern diet. Plus, the body is also able to produce a limited amount of omega 9 making use of its building blocks omega 3 and omega 6 when present.
HERE IS THE TRICK
