Thorne Research Omega Plus™
Omega-3 & Omega-6
Essential Fatty Acids - 90 Softgels
Thorne Research Omega Plus™ is an omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid supplement that may help to promote a healthy heart and brain function.
While the omega-3 fatty acids have significant health benefits, the omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) offers similar benefits. Borage oil is a rich source of GLA (higher than evening primrose oil). Omega Plus provides an omega 3:6 ratio designed to provide a healthful balance of these important essential fatty acids. Because the typical diet contains significantly more omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids, fish oils make up a greater percentage of the product.
Studies yielding positive benefits from a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and GLA demonstrate
benefits for bone health as well as the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Studies have found a combination of GLA with EPA and DHA helps maintain already normal LDL:HDL ratios and triglyceride levels.
Balanced amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
- Promotes healthy heart and brain function
- 300 mg EPA , 200 mg DHA per softgel
- 40 mg omega-6 GLA per capsule
- Molecular distillation removes heavy metals and other potential contaminants
Omega Plus has recently been improved – it now contains a higher concentration of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Recent technology has permitted an increase in the amount of EPA and DHA in each gelcap. This more concentrated formula provides the amounts of EPA and DHA that recent research says is warranted, without having to take extra capsules. As always, Thorne Research provides the highest quality, purest fish oil available – molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.
