Features and Benefits
Purity's Vegetarian Omega 3-6-9 is a comprehensive plant-sourced blend of omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids from vegetarian sources. This unique blend provides the key Essential Fatty Acids/EFA's from:
- Flaxseed oil
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Borage Oil
- Pomegranate Oil
- Sacha Inchi Seed Oil
Each serving of Omega 3-6-9 supplies alpha linolenic acid/ALA (Omega-3) and
Linoleic acid/LA (Omega-6) in a favorable ratio for cardiovascular health.*
Added to these critical/y important EFAs are Gamma linolenic acid/GLA from
Borage oil (Omega-6) and Oleic Acid (Omega-9) from Olive oil.
Why Do We Need Essential Fatty Acids?
Essential fatty acids are the "good fats", the kind your body needs to
perform a range of vital metabolic functions.* EFA's are termed "essential"
because the body cannot produce them on its own—they must be consumed from food
or supplements. EFAs are essential for the benefits they deliver to the
cardiovascular system, the brain, skin and immune system. Three major groups of
Essential Fatty Acids are required for human health: Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega
9.* All three are provided in Purity's Omega 3-6-9 vegetarian Omega Formula. The
body utilizes these Essential Fatty Acids to produce key metabolites. ALA is
metabolically converted to the Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. LA forms gamma
linoleic acid/GLA, which is further used to produce other fatty acids needed for
various cellular functions.* In addition to LA, Purity's Omega 3-6-9 contains
already formed GLA from Borage Oil.
EFAs Support Cardiovascular & Brain Health*
The health benefits of EPA and DHA for the cardiovascular system and brain
are highlighted in decades of clinical research. Recent studies tell us that ALA
delivers comparable benefits for cardiovascular health. Consuming flaxseed oil
has been shown to help support already normal cholesterol levels. Oleic acid has
also been shown to have a favorable effect on the maintenance of already normal
blood lipids.* ALA has been shown to have a positive effect on overall
longevity.* For its part, GLA facilitates cellular functions in blood vessels
that support healthy circulation.*
EFAs—Support Healthy Skin and Eyes*
GLA—found in Borage oil or produced in the body from LA—is utilized by the
body to biosynthesize vitally important hormone-like metabolites called
"prostaglandins." These compounds play key roles in regulating cellular
metabolic processes. Prostaglandins that depend on GLA are beneficial for skin,
eyes and also normal, healthy immune function.*
The Vegetarian's Alternative to Fish Oil—Purity's Omega 3-6-9 helps the body
maintain needed levels of EPA and DHA, while at the same time providing GLA and
Oleic acid, two beneficial EFAs not found in fish oil.*
