Omega 3-6-9 Complex by Natrol is a blend of fish, linseed and borage oils. This combination of nutritional oils will provide you with the adequate dose of Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9. This unique combination of essential fatty acids helps with numerous support functions in the body, including cardiovascular and cognitive health, as well as contributing towards healthy skin and hair.
Omega-3 (consisting of alpha linolenic acid, EPA and DHA) plays an essential role in brain function, as well as in normal growth and development. It can also reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. In addition it is important for cognitive function. Omega-6 (GLA) together with Omega-3 plays a crucial role in Brain function, as well as in normal growth and development. It also helps to stimulate hair growth, maintaining good bone health and regulating the metabolism. Omega 9 has been proven to promote a healthy cardiovascular system.
Amongst the ingredients in OMEGA 3-6-9 we find linseed oil, the most concentrated vegetarian source there is of Omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. In addition to linseed oil, it contains Borage Oil which is a vegetable oil rich in polyunsaturated fats. It contains a polyunsaturated fatty acid called Gamma-linoleic (GLA) which is very rare in the vegetable kingdom; however we can normally find it in the human body and in superior animals, as a metabolic derivate from linoleic essential fatty acid. This latter comes exclusively from the diet, as our bodies cannot synthesize it. GLA is a metabolic precursor to series 1 prostaglandins (series 2 ones have completely opposite actions). Prostaglandins derived from GLA have an antiplatelet action and a vasodilatory action of the micro-vessels in the circulatory system.
OMEGA 3-6-9 Complex also contains fish oil, a source of Omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic (EPA and DHA). EPA helps keep the circulation healthy and DHA plays an important role in the brain, eyes and nervous system.
