Why Choose Metabolics Omega 3, 6 and 9?
Metabolics Omega 3, 6 and 9 capsule supplies a balanced combination of these fatty acids from Fish Oil, Flaxseed Oil and Sunflower oil with a little Vitamin E to prevent oxidation of the oils.
A broad-spectrum source of the Omega 3 6 9 fatty acids: a combination of ALA, EPA and DHA omega 3s, along with linoleic acid and oleic acid, providing a significant dose of these poly- and mono-unsaturated fats. With added vitamin E to support their effectiveness.
These Omega 3 6 9 soft gel capsules are a broad-spectrum source of the primary essential fatty acids.
Omega 3 polyunsaturated fats are important for cognitive, visual and cardiovascular health, helping to control cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Omegas 6 and 9, when used as a replacement in the diet for saturated fatty acids, can have a generally beneficial impact on blood pressure and cholesterol balance and so also aid cardiovascular health.
Omega 3 6 9 Capsules
The western diet typically has a high ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids. A lot has been said about the importance of improving this ratio in favour of omega 3s. Recent research backs this view to a point, but it is becoming clear that better outcomes for cardiovascular health, and even with some breast and prostate cancers, are achieved by re-balancing the ratio through increasing Omega 3 intakes – and especially DHA omega 3s.
Overall, replacing saturated fats with monounsaturated fats (such as omega 9), and particularly polyunsaturated fats (such as omega 3 and omega 6), is widely regarded as delivering improvements in health.
Our Omega 3 6 9 soft gel capsules each supply approximately 280 mg of omega 3, 230 mg of omega 6 (as essential fatty acid, LA) and 120 mg of omega 9 (OA). The omega 3 comprises about 160 mg of ALA, 72 mg of EPA and 48 mg of DHA. Because the body can make direct use of ALA, and from it can synthesise DHA and EPA, each capsule is a useful general source of fatty acids.
Each Omega 3 6 9 capsule also contains 10 mg, 83% of the EU RDA, of vitamin E. Vitamin E is an important antioxidant that can improve the effectiveness of fatty acids by protecting them from the possibly damaging effects of oxidation.
