Dr. Frances Williams, the diet doctor, explains why Omega 3-6-9 with CLA are better for you than simple Omega-3's alone.
"CLA helps you burn fat, not muscle. Loss of muscle during weight loss causes the “slowed metabolism” experienced by yo-yo dieters.
The Omega 3 to omega 6 ideal ratio is 1:1. Omega-6 is plentiful in meats and nuts. But dieters tend to limit these, as they are high in calories. Therefore, vegetarians and those losing weight—especially people on meal replacements—need the extra omega 6!
Omega 9’s are anti-inflammatory and great for joints—especially for people on an active exercise regimen—especially running and lifting weights. Omega 9 is found in nut oils and olive oil. Low calorie diets simply do not provide enough. So everyone needs OMEGA-3 and for optimal health vegetarians and weight loss dieters need OMEGA 3-6-9 with CLA." - Frances Williams MD, Board Certified Family Medicine, Board Certified Obesity Medicine.
Omega 3-6-9 Rebalancing Plus Conjugated Linoleic Acid Natural Fatty Acid Supplement 100 Softgels. This mixed fatty acid supplement supplies a concentrated source of important omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids. An imbalance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids may contribute to health problems, including heart disease and autoimmune disorders. Omega-3 is too low in most diets. Some types of omega-6 are too high, while others are too low. This product provides omega-3 plus selected active forms of omega-6 to help establish a healthier balance. Each softgel combines four nutritional oils as follows:
• Pure, Molecularly Distilled Fish Oil: Highly purified fish oil is the primary ingredient. Fish oil supplies omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) fatty acids. The fatty acids found in fish oil are important to proper immune function, regulation of inflammation, lipoprotein metabolism, brain function, and mood regulation. Heavy metals such as mercury and lead, cholesterol, PCB’s, pesticides, and other impurities often found in fish and unrefined fish oil products are removed through molecular distillation. This concentrated oil contains higher amounts of EPA and DHA than typical fish oil supplements.
• Organically-Grown Flax Seed Oil: Cold-pressing of organic flax seeds produces a high-quality flax oil concentrate rich in essential omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid. Alpha-linolenic acid is an essential fatty acid that supports skin and epithelial cell membrane integrity and balanced prostaglandin metabolism. Flax also provides essential omega-6 linoleic acid and oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid thought to be responsible for many of the health benefits of olive oil.
• Unrefined Borage Oil: Pure, cold-pressed borage seed oil, a concentrated source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), helps offset the proinflammatory effects of arachidonic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid that is too high in most diets.
• Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) Oil: This omega-6 fatty acid adds unique benefits not found in most other mixed fatty acid supplements. It is similar in structure to linoleic acid but has different actions. CLA assists cholesterol metabolism, supports the immune system, and may help reduce body fat. CLA is derived from pure safflower oil. This product can be taken by anyone who wants to enhance their diet with a broad-spectrum fatty acid supplement. It may be especially helpful for individuals who do not regularly consume fish or who may poorly metabolize fatty acids consumed in their diet. This product was made in a GMP and ISO 9001:2000 registered facility.
