Omega-Life has Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 essential fatty acids which supports beauty, skin health and helps promoting heart health.
Fatty acids are usually derived from triglycerides or phospholipids. When they are not attached to other molecules, they are known as "free" fatty acids.
Fatty acids are important sources of fuel because, when metabolized, they yield large quantities of ATP. Many cell types use glucose and fatty acids for energy production (1). These fatty acids which are required for cells are called as essential fatty acids which are Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids.
Omega fatty acids are useful in normal functioning of all tissues in the body. The deficiency of these fatty acids is responsible for the symptoms like abnormalities in liver and kidneys, changes in blood, reduced growth rate, decreased immune function, depression and skin changes including dryness and scaling, (2) adequate intake of essential fatty acids results in prevention of atherosclerosis reduced heart disease and stroke relief from ulcerative colitis, menstrual pain, joint pains (2).
Life On Omega-Life has the unique blend of three essential omegas which is omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids chain.
Omega-3 (ω-3) and omega-6 (ω-6) fatty acids are important components of cell membranes and are precursors to many other substances in the body such as those involved with regulating blood pressure and inflammatory responses (3).
The human body is capable of producing all the fatty acids it needs, except for two: linoleic acid (LA), an Omega-6 fatty acid and alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA). These are consumed from a balanced diet. Both these fatty acids are needed for growth and repair.
Conversion of the Omega-3 Fatty Acids into Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is to a limited extent, it is recommended that sources of these are also included in the diet. ALA and LA are found in plant and seed oils. EPA and DHA are found in oily fish (3).
How does Omega-Life works?
Humans can convert short-chain Omega-3 fatty acids to long-chain forms (EPA, DHA) with efficiency below 5% (4) (5). The Conversion efficiency of ALA to EPA and DHA is more in Omega-Life supplement as it has eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) content which source is fish oil concentrate extracted from marine freshwater fishes which has several times as much as Omega-3.
It’s also has Omega 6 as Linolenic acid, Gamma Linolenic acid (GLA) which source is borage oil with 20% GLA and Evening Primrose Oil 9 % GLA, this all supplements collectively form the perfect formula to provide to the best results as possible.
EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function and maintenance of healthy heart, claim may be used only for food which is at least a source of EPA and DHA as the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA(6).
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) maternal intake contributes to the normal brain development of the foetus, normal development of the eye of the
foetus and breastfed infants the claim can be used only for food which provides a daily intake of at least 200 mg DHA (6). They contribute in lowering the risk of health effects such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases such as revascularization or abnormal heart rhythms, inflammation, developmental disabilities, cognitive problems and atopic diseases (7).
Evening primrose oil contributes to the treatment of nerve damage caused by diabetes. Taking evening primrose oil daily for 6-12 months improves symptoms of nerve damage caused by diabetes. Taking evening primrose oil with fish oil and calcium seems to decrease bone loss and increase bone density in elderly people with osteoporosis (8).
Borage oil contributes in Improving the function of the lungs in critically ill patients, when taken by mouth in combination with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), might reduce the number of days spent in the intensive care unit (ICU) and the length of time a breathing machine is needed by patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) (9).
