Description

Omega Max provides a blend of oils derived from flaxseed, borage and deep fish sources. Both the flax and the borage seed oils are 100% cold, expeller pressed and hexane free. The fish oil is molecularly distilled and goes through extensive testing for heavy metals, PCBs, dioxins and other potential contaminants.

FUNCTIONS

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) play a vital role in the biochemical and physiological processes in the body. For example, omega-3 fats such as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are critical for supporting healthy cardiovascular and neurological function, as well as promoting a normal, healthy inflammatory response. Omega-6 fats such as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) also provide many health benefits including supporting healthy skin and a healthy inflammatory response. Omega-9 fats such as oleic acid, typically found in high concentrations in olive oil, helps support healthy cardiovascular function. Unfortunately, the typical American diet is deficient in essential and other important fatty acids due to the consumption of heavily processed and refined foods. These foods are severely lacking in EFAs. Consuming a supplement of omega-3, 6 and 9 fats helps ensure you receive adequate amounts of these important nutrients.

INDICATIONS

Omega Max may be a useful dietary supplement for those who aren’t meeting their daily requirement of essential fatty acids or wish to increase their intake of the essential fatty acids.
