Advance - Omega

Advance Omega is concentrated marine fish oil, providing enriched levels of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 300 mg) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 200 mg). Advance Omega delivers high levels of EPA and DHA, and is lower in saturated fatty acids than regular marine fish oil. They are called essential fatty acids because they cannot be made by the body but are essential for human health. We must obtain these essential fatty acids from our diet or nutritional supplementation.

Advance Omega is strictly screened for any toxic metals and chemicals, and is completely free of cholesterol. The oil is carefully processed and handled to avoid oxidation. A healthy balance of dietary omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids appears to be a prerequisite for normal immune function. Typical diets in developed countries deliver large amounts of saturated fatty acids, the omega-6 and arachidonic acids, all of which are pro-inflammatory, and low levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Throughout evolution, humans were accustomed to diets providing roughly equal amounts of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. However, during the last 200 years, the ratio of dietary omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of fatty acids increased from about 1:1 to 20-25:1. Leading healthcare professionals now recommend a ratio between 4:1 and 10:1. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA provide a natural counterbalance, because they serve as precursors for the anti-inflammatory substances and decrease the formation of pro-inflammatory substances.

Advance Omega provides beneficial omega-3 fatty acids that are important in the regulation of normal blood lipids, healthy cholesterol metabolism, hormone function, cognitive function and pregnancy for normal fetal brain development. They can also be helpful in managing other diseases, such as psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease, migraine, depression, rheumatoid arthritis and many other conditions.

Suggested Use: One to three softgels daily as a dietary supplement, or as directed by your healthcare provider. Take with food.
