Omega 3-6-9,  1000 mg, 100 Gels
 
  • Essential Fatty Acids
  • Supports Cardiovascular Health
  • Hexane Free Nutritional Oils

Omega 3-6-9 from NOW is an optimal blend of essential fatty acids sourced from organic Flax Seed, Evening Primrose and Olive Oils and expeller-pressed Wheat Germ Oil.  This balanced vegetarian supplement is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, dietary components vital for numerous bodily processes including the maintenance and production of new cells.

Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) is the chemical in fish oil that has numerous benefits including being very anti-inflammatory, making it great for joint and other body pains, the cardiovascular system, lowers triglycerides, and is great for hair and skin health.  High levels of EPA have a beneficial influential on behavior and mood.

Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) is the type of fat that the brain is largely composed of, and thus, DHA is brain nutrition. It's to our brains as calcium is to our bones, and in fact, optimal infant brain and eye development and function depends on it. The latest science clearly demands another important nutrient be added to the diet of expecting mothers: DHA.  It also supports healthy brain function and promotes a positive mood and well-being.

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.

Evening primrose oil is full of the fatty acid gamma linolenic acid, or GLA, one of the body’s essential fatty acids. GLA and other fatty acids are very important for the general function of your body. Evening primrose oil is usually used to alleviate distress that is commonly associated with menstrual signs.

All omega fatty acids play specific roles in overall health. These good fats can have health benefits, including:

  • Prevent coronary heart disease
  • Prevent stroke
  • Prevent diabetes
  • Promote healthy nerve activity
  • Improve vitamin absorption
  • Maintain a healthy immune system
  • Promote cell development
