XBrain’s Omega 3-6-9
XBrain’s Omega 3-6-9 fatty acid supplement is especially formulated to provide you with the right balance of the essential poly-unsaturated omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and the mono-unsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. It also contains vitamin E which prevents their oxidation. Consuming essential fatty acids in the right ratios of omega-3 to omega-6 protects against heart disease, Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia, lowers blood pressure, and blood triglyceride and LDL (‘bad cholesterol’) levels, and has an anti-inflammatory effect, especially helpful in rheumatoid arthritis.
Omega-3 and omega-6 are essential fatty acids; the human body cannot synthesise them and must obtain them from the diet. They are important constituents in cell membranes, the grey matter of the brain, and function as precursors to many important hormones involved in regulating metabolism and the immune system.
However, simply consuming these fatty acids is not enough. Because the body uses the same pathways to process and store them, they have to be consumed in the right ratios. Humans evolved to consume omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in a ratio of 1:1. However, people in developed countries consume 10 to 30 times more omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids.
The disruption of the balance between omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids may negate their health benefits to the heart, and tip the fine balance of the immune system from fighting infection to inflammation, the cause of many chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. XBrain’s Omega 3-6-9 fatty acid supplement ensures that you obtain the correct balance of the essential fatty acids.
There are three important omega-3 fatty acids, ALA, EPA and DHA. Alpha-linoleic acid (ALA) is obtained mostly from plant sources, such as seed oils. Oily fish are the major dietary sources of EPA and DHA, the American Heart Association recommends that adults eat oily fish at least twice a week, to obtain the necessary levels of EPA and DHA to protect against cardio-vascular disease.
However, many marine fish nowadays are contaminated with methylmercury, PCBs and dioxins. Since these toxins accumulate in the muscles, they are not found in fish oil supplements. You can safely take XBrain’s Omega 3-6-9, knowing that you will be getting the benefits of the correct ratio of omega 3 fatty acids, without the danger of mercury poisoning.
XBrain’s Omega 3-6-9 formula contains, flaxseed oil, fish oil, sunflower oil and vitamin E. Together these provide you with the right balance of the omega-3 fatty acids ALA, EPA and HDA, the omega-6 linoleic acid, the omega-9 oleic acid, and vitamin E.
Flaxseed oil, is one of the best sources of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA) available, the unsaturated omega-3 fatty acid makes up about 55% of the oil. It is taken to reduce blood pressure and lower the risk of heart disease, has an anti-inflammatory effect, lowers bad cholesterol, results in healthy skin, and aids the growth of healthy hair and nails.
Fish oil is the major dietary source of the the omega-3 monounsaturated EPA and HDA fatty acids. Taken as a supplement it can effectively lower blood triglyceride levels, associated with heart disease and diabetes. It lowers the risk of heart disease and stroke, lowers blood pressure, improves the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, slows down the rate of bone loss reducing the risk of developing osteoporosis, and lowers cholesterol levels. It is also good for mental health, it improves thinking and behaviour in children with ADHD, and may improve the symptoms of depression. It also protects against age-related macular degeneration, and improves the symptoms of painful periods.
Sunflower seed oil is a source of the omega-9 oleic acid and the omega-6 linoleic acid. It is important for decreasing LDL (bad cholesterol) levels, lowering blood pressure, and protecting against heart disease.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, which protects the body from free radicals. It plays an important role in neurological function, wound healing, and prevents the risk of blood clot formation. It also inhibits essential fatty acid oxidation.
You have two essential fatty acids that your body can't make which are omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. These need to come from dietary sources. They are important for brain development, overall brain function, immune function, cardiovascular health as well as being a membrane component in all your cells...Read More...
