Fatty acids are dietary nutrients important for the healthy function of key structures and systems in the body. Two particularly important categories of fatty acids classified as essential for health are the omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Unlike other fatty acids that can be created in the body, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids can only be obtained from the diet. Typically, foods that contain or are prepared with vegetable oils are rich in omega-6 fatty acids while the primary dietary source of omega-3 fatty acids is fatty fish. A healthy diet should include a balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Regrettably, many Western diets include too many fried, fatty foods that contain unhealthy levels of omega-6 fatty acids. Furthermore, many diets do not include the frequent consumption
of fish leading to an unhealthy fatty acid ratio grossly in favor of omega-6 fatty acids—as high as 30:1 by some estimates. Increasing dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids while reducing omega-6 intake will help restore a healthy fatty acid ratio. The scientific evidence supporting the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids is immense. More than 100,000 scientific studies have been published on the health benefits of fish and fish oil (Medline 1966- 2004). From helping to balance the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response to supporting brain and cardiovascular functions,
omega-3s have been widely proven in the scientific community. Benefits of omega-3 fatty acids include boosting the body’s immune response, supporting cardiovascular health, improving joint function and mobility, promoting healthy skin, and normalizing the body’s Pharmanex’s Marine Omega is a convenient and safe way to increase
dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids. The ultra pure fish oil in Marine Omega is extracted from fish harvested from pristine marine waters. MarineOmega is manufactured to the high standards of the Pharmanex® 6S Quality Process guaranteeing that each bottle is free of harmful toxins, contaminants, and heavy metals. MarineOmega also contains vitamin E to preserve product freshness by preventing oxidation. MarineOmega also contains an important scientific discovery— krill oil. Krill is a small ocean-going crustacean that contains a high concentration of EPA and DHA in a unique phospholipid form that passes through the harsh digestive system with DHA intact. This unique krill source passes though the brain-bloodbarrier with ease, making it a logically beneficial and bioavailable source not found in other fish oil products. Krill oil also contains the antioxidant carotenoid astaxanthin and a unique flavonoid—the first flavonoid to be extracted from a non-plant or algae source that provides additional antioxidant
