Barleans Omega Twin, 60 Gels- Flax/Borage Oil Combination
Barlean’s Omega Twin is a significant advancement in essential fatty acid nutrition. This product combines our organic flaxseed oil, the world’s richest source of alpha-linolenic acid (LNA) Omega-3, with our borage oil, the world’s richest source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) Omega-6.
A special synergism exists between these two important fatty acids that may potentiate their effects.
Flax Seed oil is a rich balanced source of essential fatty acids. These beneficial fats play important roles in supporting brain, nerve, glandular and eye functions. In addition, they are involved in the transport and metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides.
Essential fatty acids are further metabolized into hormone-like substances in the cell known as prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are involved in the regulation of many important physiological functions.
Rich in essential fatty acids, or EFAs, flaxseed oil is used to prevent and treat heart disease and to relieve a variety of inflammatory disorders and hormone-related problems, including infertility. A source of fiber, the flax plant also boasts a long history as a healing herb.
Today, flaxseeds are best known for the therapeutic oil that is derived by pressing them. Flaxseed oil has earned a great reputation for treating a variety of ailments ranging from heart disease to lupus & other autoimmune diseases.
Borage Oil is a nutritional oil rich in polyunsaturated fats. Linoleic Acid and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) are enhanced essential fatty acids. Although the body can manufacture GLA from dietary linoleic acid, it can be more efficiently utilized for body functions when supplied directly by dietary sources.
Borage Oil is a more concentrated source of GLA than Evening Primrose Oil (EPO). One Borage Oil softgel is equivalent to about 5 standard EPO softgels in GLA content. Borage Oil is a little known secret for keeping your skin healthy. It is a natural oil that not only restores moisture and smoothness to dry and damaged skin, but can also provide relief to people who suffer from chronic skin disorders such as eczema and atopic dermatitis.
Clinically, borage oil has been shown to be a very effective agent for treating skin disorders and for alleviating the inflammatory symptoms associated with these disorders. For everyday use, borage oil has been shown to be very effective in treating the redness, inflammation, and moisture loss associated with dry skin and to positively affect the texture, suppleness and moisture content of skin.

What's driving all this activity on the Barlean's family farm in Ferndale? The realization that 8 out of 10 Americans are deficient in essentail fats, called Omega-3 fatty acids. The health consequences of this nutritional deficiency are extensive.
Health authorities, such as Artemis Simopoulos M.D., author of The Omega Plan, indicates disorders such as heart and blood vessel disease, eye problems such as dry eyes and macular degeneration, mood and behavior problems such as attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity, autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, diabetes and lupus, skin problems such as psoriasis, and even cancer, may materialize from this common nutritional deficiency.
