Douglas Laboratories - Balance Plus

Providing Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9 fatty acids

Gluten & Dairy Free - 90 Capliques

Douglas Labs Balance Plus is a combination of nutritionally important, synergistically acting fatty acids: the omega-3 fatty acids from cold water marine fish (eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA; and docosahexaenoic acid, DHA), the omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) from evening primrose oil, and the omega-9 oleic acid from olive oil. Balance Plus is now offered as a liquid-filled, two piece capsule. 

Balance Plus FUNCTIONS

Typical diets in developed countries deliver large amounts of saturated fatty acids and the polyunsaturated omega-6 linoleic and arachidonic acids, but often not enough of the omega-3 and omega-9 fatty acids. Similar fatty acid imbalances can be the result of consuming very low fat diets. Diets high in linoleic acid (omega-6) and low in omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to promote the formation of the undesired 2-series prostaglandins, thromboxanes and leukotrienes, whereas diets high in omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil, flax seed oil) enhance the formation of desired prostaglandins of the 1 and 3 series. The omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid (GLA from evening primrose oil) is thought to downregulate the actions of excessive dietary linoleic acid. GLA and the omega-3 fatty acids appear to act synergistically in balancing normal immune function.

Thus, a balanced dietary intake of all of these fatty acids appears to be necessary to maintain a normal immune response and support the body’s normal inflammatory processes. The omega-3 fatty acids also have important functions for visual acuity and possibly in maintaining already normal blood lipoprotein levels. Balance Plus serves as a pure, natural source of nutritionally beneficial fatty acids that are often hard to obtain from the diet. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) from fish oil, the synergistic GLA from evening primrose oil, and omega-9 oleic acid from olive oil, Balance Plus helps restore balanced fatty acid nutrition. The formula also provides those nutrients that are needed to properly metabolize these fatty acids: niacin, zinc, and vitamins B6, C and E.


Balance Plus may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of nutritionally important fatty acids.
