What is Osteobolin-C® and What Does it Do?
Omega-Essentials® are a great source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids; Omega-3 Fatty Acids have been a hot topic in the health industry over the last few years. Supportive but not conclusive evidence has found that Omega-3s may be an important inclusion in any heart-healthy diet.* Supportive but not conclusive evidence also exists that Omega-3s may support a healthy inflammation response and may even help promote positive mood.*
The Basics of OMEGA-ESSENTIALS™
- Omega-3 Fatty Acids may be beneficial for joint health*
- Provides a low-cost, healthy source of marine lipids and Omega-3 Fatty Acids, as well as EPA/DHA*
- Omega-3 Fatty Acids may help support cardiovascular health*
- May support mobility and flexibility*
- May contribute to optimal nervous system functioning*
- May promote overall ocular health*
Unfortunately, while appreciable amounts of the plant-derived omega-3 fatty acids are consumed daily in North America (approximately 2 g/day), DHA, (docosahexaenoic acid) one of the physiologically essential nutrients in omega-3’s, is consumed at much smaller levels than needed (approximately 80 mg/day). EPA, (eicosapentaenoic acid) another nutritionally essential ingredient in omega-3’s, is consumed at the level of approximately 50 mg/day in the average diet. DHA plus EPA are virtually absent from plant food sources traditionally rich in omega-3’s (such as flax, canola oil, and walnuts). DHA is required in high levels in the brain and retina as a physiologically-essential nutrient to provide for optimal neuronal functioning (learning ability, mental development) and visual acuity. Supportive but not conclusive evidence exist that DHA and EPA may have beneficial effects in supporting cardiovascular health.* Since the metabolic conversion of Omega-3’s to DHA/EPA (combined) by metabolism is very limited in humans, the most direct way of providing DHA plus EPA for the body is via their direct consumption, in the form of some type of supplemental dietary delivery.*
Why Omega-Essentials® ?
Omega Essentials contains high amounts of both EPA and DHA, offering a precise blend of the aforementioned health benefits at an extremely affordable price. Each capsule of Omega Essentials™ offers a precise blend of EPA/DHA in very appreciable amounts, rendering it extremely effective as well. Omega Essentials™ is made in limited runs using Soft Gel Technologies® Marine Lipids™ with vitamin E added to avoid oxidation, so freshness and potency are guaranteed, whereas other brands may sit in warehouses for months before making it to store shelves. Omega Essentials provides a high-quality source of EPA and DHA, which studies suggest to have numerous physical benefits.*
