Certain fats are not only good for you but, in fact, essential for your health. These fats are known as fatty acids, and are comprised of the omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) that cannot be made in the body, as well omega-9, which can be produced by the body but is still beneficial when supplemented.

Pure Essentials Ultra Omegas contains the most beneficial balance of fatty acids, featuring the EFAs in their optimal 4:1 ratio, as part of a potent, high-grade formulation derived from pure and diverse sources, inclusive of flaxseed, olive and fish oils.

While the average American diet is high in fat, it tends to be the “bad” kind of fat and not good fatty acids. In fact, the typical diet tends to be deficient in these “good for you” lipids, as foods lose EFAs through processing and exposure to air (oxygen), oxidants, and toxins (from lead and mercury to peroxides and sulfites). EFA deficiencies, therefore, have become more of the rule rather than the exception.

Omega-3 EFAs are required for cell membranes to achieve optimum fluidity, and to help the body have a correct balance between inflammatory and counter-inflammatory hormones. EFAs are the source of the body's potent prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances that regulate many cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, hormonal, and nerve functions. Considering its importance, it is not surprising that EFA insufficiency is linked to many serious disease states, including:

  • Cardiovascular concerns. Arteriosclerosis is characterized by a build-up of plaque in the arteries. Omega-3 fatty acids act as blood thinners, helping to reduce the clotting and aggregation associated with this disease. They play an important role in preventing and treating arteriosclerosis. Studies show that individuals with a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids have significantly lower rates of heart disease.
  • Inflammatory / autoimmune diseases. EFAs not only prevent atherosclerosis but may also reduce the risk of autoimmune issues. Additionally, EFAs can benefit patients with inflammatory diseases, such as asthma, arthritis, dermatitis, eczema, and psoriasis.
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Deficiencies in EFAs have been associated with PMS. The anti-inflammatory effects of EFAs can relieve menstrual symptoms such as cramps, bloating, and nausea.
  • Concentration and attention deficits. EFA deficiencies can cause irritability that reduces attention span and decrease the ability to concentrate. Appropriate levels may therefore help symptoms associated with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
  • Scientific studies have associated an insufficient intake of omega-3 EFAs with the following: depression, memory problems, low intelligence, learning disorders, dyslexia, schizophrenia, dementia, irritability, poor vision, inattention, alcoholism, hostility, aggression, and several degenerative neurologic diseases.

Because these fats are difficult to obtain from diet alone, fatty acid supplementation can provide substantial health benefits. Pure Essentials Ultra Omegas offers a complete set of fatty acids in their correct ratios, and in a single formula, including:

  • Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a member of the omega 3 family, which converts to anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. Studies indicate that DHA is especially vital to growing or repairing brain and nerve cell function.
  • Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which converts to gamma linolenic acid (GLA), is one of the most important acids in the omega 6 family. Pure Essentials Ultra Omegas provides CLA at higher local concentrations and with more beneficial actions than other supplements or diet alone can offer.
  • Flax seed, olive, and deep sea fish oils, which contain significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, including alpha linolenic acid (ALA), eicosopentaenoic acid (EPA), and linoleic acid (LA).
