Omega3 Fats On Steroids!

By Steve Zones

There is a lot of information available on the effects of essential fatty acids and their importance. The term 'Omega-3' is a buzzword in health these days, but very few know exactly how to maximize the effect of this essential oil. There is a product that enhances the effects of Omega 3 fats in a way that has never been formulated. Think of it as Omega-3 fats on steroids. But before we discuss this wonderful product, we need to explore essential fatty acids in detail.

Unsaturated fats, or "good fats", possess a liquid consistency at 70 degrees. They will remain in fluid form after cooling. Good fats are referred to as necessary fats: omega3 and omega 6 with both being unsaturated fats.

Do you know how much intake of essential fatty acids has been altered in the last 100 years? The proportion of Omega-6 to Omega-3 should be close to 1:1. However, today it is more like 10:1 and up to 20:1. The clear reason for this development is the addition of corn, sunflower, safflower, sesame and other Omega-6 oils to the modern diet. There are many scientists who believe this is clear factor in higher incidences of chronic medical conditions such as: heart disease, arthritis, asthma, acne, obesity and depression. Have no doubt that we must increase intake of Omega-3 fatty acids and lower the Omega-6 (linoleic acid) oils in our diet.

Many people are unaware that omega 3 fats can be much more powerful than they already are. And that is by consuming these oils with their cofactors. Cofactors make the omega 3 oils work more efficiently, such as zinc sulfate, folic acid, vitamin b-12, etc. There is a supplement that has all cofactors of omega 3 fats included in the products, called Omegasentials. The addition of these beneficial minerals in Omegasentials makes it a powerful supplement

Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) is an Omega-6 fatty acid seen in borage oil where it happens in substantial amounts. Additionally it is seen in smaller portions in black current and evening primrose oils. GLA has been successfully used in the treatment of different medical conditions with rheumatoid arthritis and eczema being chief among them. Many natural treatments for psoriasis include this fatty acid as well. Current research shows that GLA has a synergistic effect on the Omega-3 marine-derived DHA and EPA. This has a notable effect with regard to cardiovascular health and fat metabolism.
