Omega 3 ALA

One of the main flaws in western diet is the imbalance between the intake of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids. The ideal relationship, according to some experts, is 4:1, but the average relationship amongst Europeans is 5:1, and in persons who do not eat fish 2 times weekly, the relationship may be 10:1 or even worse, 20:1. This imbalance leads to over expression of harmful eicosanoids (inflammatories) in the body, and they enhance the risk of chronic diseases and degeneration.

The Omega 3 family consists of different types of fats including ALA, EPA & DHA. The richest dietary sources of omega 3 are to be found in Flax Oil (Omega 3 ALA) and Oily Fish (Omega 3 EPA & DHA). The most bio-available forms of Omega 3 are EPA & DHA, this is because ALA has to be converted into the usable EPA/DHA Omega 3s.

Dietary sources of ALA Omega 3 include flaxseed, linseed, soybean, and pumpkin seed oil.
Omega 3 Flaxseed can be taken alone, or in conjunction with Omega 3 derived from fish (EPA & DHA).

Omega 3 ALA (Flax Oil) is most popular among people who do not eat fish.

Vegetarians/Vegans should choose to take flax oil liquid or particulate to avoid the consumption of gelatin used in some encapsulated oils (Health Plus Flax Oil is available in a Vege-Cap).
