Omega Plus (EPA, DHA, GLA)
Omega Plus - balanced amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
- promotes healthy heart and brain function
- 300 mg EPA , 200 mg DHA per softgel
- 40 mg omega-6 GLA per capsule
- molecular distillation removes heavy metals and other potential contaminants.
While the omega-3 fatty acids have significant health benefits, the omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) offers similar benefits. Borage oil is a rich source of GLA (higher than evening primrose oil). Omega Plus provides an omega 3:6 ratio designed to provide a healthful balance of these important essential fatty acids. Because the typical diet contains significantly more omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids, fish oils make up a greater percentage of the product.
Studies yielding positive benefits from a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and GLA demonstrate benefits for bone health as well as the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Studies have found a combination of GLA with EPA and DHA helps maintain already normal LDL:HDL ratios and triglyceride levels.
Thorne Research provides the highest quality, purest fish oil available – molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.
