1300 mg Omega 3-6-9 Softgels
Solgar ® Omega 3-6-9 is a premium blend of Omega 3, 6, and 9. Fatty acids are derived from fish, flaxseed, and borage oils. These essential fats are required for several physiological functions and need to be part of our diet as the body cannot make them on its own.
Omega 3 consists of EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid). These are commonly found in oily fish such as sardines, mackerel, and salmon. It also includes ALA (Alpha-linolenic Acid), which fish naturally convert to the all-important EPA and DHA, but our bodies can only convert small amounts.
Omega 6 is made up of Linoleic Acid and Gamma-Linolenic Acid and can be found in several oils and nuts.
Omega 9 can naturally be found in food that contains Oleic Acid such as nuts and oils.
The ratio between these fatty acids is very important, especially the one between Omega 3 and Omega 6. Solgar ® Omega 3-6-9, with its 3 a day dosage, provides a higher ratio of omega-3 oils, both from fish and flax, which are complemented by the high-quality omega-6s from borage and flax oils, as well as omega-9s in the form of oleic acid, also from flax oil.
Fish oils are susceptible to different contaminants as these are often present in the food fish consume. Contaminants are often present at the very bottom of the aquatic food chain in marine organisms in the sediments of fresh and ocean water. To ensure purity and safety, Solgar’s Omega 3-6-9 uses oil that has been molecularly distilled to remove mercury, PCBs, and other heavy metal contaminants.
