Ultra Omega 3-6-9™
Ultra Omega 3-6-9 is a synergistic blend of Fish, Borage Seed and Organic Flax Seed Oils. This combination of well-known nutritional oils provides a synergistic balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acids plus Omega-9, a non-essential, but beneficial fatty acid. The Omega-3's, Alpha Linolenic Acid, EPA and DHA, and the Omega-6, GLA, are necessary for the maintenance of cardiovascular, nervous system and skin health. Oleic Acid, an Omega-9, has also been shown to promote a healthy vascular system.*Ultra Omega 3-6-9™ is a synergistic blend of natures best sources for omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids!

Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as omega 6 fatty acids, are known as “essential fatty acids”, which means that they are essential to human health. Essential fatty acids must be obtained by dietary means because the human body lacks the capacity to create them on its own. EFA’s enter our bodies primarily in the form of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and linoleic acid (LA), Omega 3 & 6 respectfully. EPA, DHA (omega 3) and GLA gamma linolenic acid (omega 6) are the prime, health promoting, EFA metabolites from the above forms. Wild harvested fish and certain plant seed oils are our main natural sources for these EFA’s, with supplements becoming our more reliable source, with each passing day. Note: With our modern food production methods in full force, today’s beef, milk, salmon, poultry, eggs and grain contain but sheer traces, if that, of omega 3 fatty acids. I am a true believer that supplements are not only beneficial but MANDATORY for our survival and quality of life. At one time, not so long ago, cancer, heart disease, degenerative disease, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autoimmune disease, ADD/ADHD and may other ailments (that we think are so common and INEVITABLE) were practically NON-EXISTENT. Why? We ate real foods that contained dis-ease preventing and life sustaining EFA’s, vitamins and minerals.
There are three important omega-3 fatty acids in human nutrition and they are: alpha linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
The most important omega 3 fatty acid is ALA. Flax Seed (aka linseed) (Linum usitatissimum) and its oil are perhaps the most widely available botanical sources of this omega-3 and are one of the richest sources of ALA in nature. Flaxseed oil is 55% ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) by volume  and contains approximately three times as much omega-3 as omega-6. Once eaten ALA is converted by the body, via enzyme reaction, to EPA and DHA. To make things simple, ALA is like the mother with EPA and DHA being fraternal twins. The three possess similar traits but each also possesses unique and distinctive qualities.
I wish it was as simple as just having to have enough ALA in our diet, but with today’s pro inflammatory diet and lifestyle we need the insurance that, taking extra, EPA and DHA provides. EPA is needed to make potent anti-inflammatory substances that are used throughout the body. DHA is required for brain development, brain function, vision, and sperm formation, and has heart-protective and anti-inflammatory functions as well. DHA is especially important for women during pregnancy and while breast-feeding, to build the child's nerves, brain, and vision (retina).
On September 8, 2004, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave "qualified health claim" status to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 fatty acids, stating that "supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease."
Omega-6 fatty acids possess both the possibility to heal as well as harm. Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) from the borage seed is a precursor to a substance known a PGE1. PGE1 favorably affects the immune system, blood vessels and is anti-inflammatory. Arachidonic acid (AA), in excess, is the bad omega-6 fatty acid. AA is associated with a variety of inflammation-related diseases (anything with an “itis” at the end of the word).
Generally speaking the beneficial omega-6 fatty acids come from vegetable sources and the harmful ones come from animal sources such as meat. Note: Again generally speaking, vegetarians infrequently develop conditions ending in “itis”, where as meat and potato eaters get the loins share of “itis” conditions.
Omega-9 fatty acids, unlike omega’s 3 and 6, are not classed as an essential fatty acid (EFA) because they can be created by the human body. Oleic acid occurs naturally in greater quantities than any other fatty acid. Studies have shown that high concentrations of oleic acid can lower blood levels of cholesterol. Another study done by Dr Javier Menendez, of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, found that oleic acid blocks the action of a cancer-causing oncogene called HER-2/neu which is found in about 30 percent of breast cancer patients and it also improved the effectiveness of the breast cancer drug Herceptin. Oleic acid is most abundant in olives and olive oil but it is also present in the cocoa butter of chocolate.

Because of the potential for side effects and interactions with medications, dietary supplements should be taken only under the supervision of a knowledgeable healthcare provider.
People with either diabetes or schizophrenia may lack the ability to convert ALA to EPA and DHA, the forms more readily used in the body. Therefore, people with these conditions should obtain their omega-3 fatty acids from dietary sources rich in EPA and DHA.
Although studies have found that regular consumption of fish (which includes the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA) may reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a recent study including two large groups of men and women found that diets rich in ALA may substantially increase the risk of this disease. More research is needed in this area. Until this information becomes available, it is best for people with macular degeneration to obtain omega-3 fatty acids from sources of EPA and DHA, rather than ALA.
If you are currently being treated with any of the following medications, you should not use omega-3 fatty acid supplements without first talking to your healthcare provider.
Blood-thinning Medications: Omega-3 fatty acids may increase the blood-thinning effects of aspirin or warfarin. While the combination of aspirin and omega-3 fatty acids may actually be helpful under certain circumstances (such as heart disease), they should only be taken together under the guidance and supervision of your healthcare provider.Cyclosporine: Taking omega-3 fatty acids during cyclosporine therapy may reduce toxic side effects (such as high blood pressure and kidney damage) associated with this medication in transplant patients.
Etretinate and Topical Steroids: The addition of omega-3 fatty acids (specifically EPA) to a drug regimen of etretinate and topical corticosteroids may improve symptoms of psoriasis.
Cholesterol-lowering Medications:Following certain nutritional guidelines, including increasing the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in your diet and reducing the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio, may allow a group of cholesterol lowering medications known as "statins" (such as atorvastatin, lovastatin, and simvastatin) to work more effectively.
Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs): In an animal study, treatment with omega-3 fatty acids reduced the risk of ulcers from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). More research is needed to evaluate whether omega-3 fatty acids would have the same effects in people.
