A combination of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids from borage, fish and flax seed oils in a soft gelatin capsule. Contains concentrated EPA/DHA fish oil from cold water Norwegian fish and cooler-climate Canadian borage and flax oils.



Research

  Foran SE et al. Measurement of mercury levels in concentrated over-the-counter fish oil preparations: Is fish oil healthier than fish? Arch Pathol Lab Med. 2003;127:1603-05.
  There is very little mercury found in fish oil supplements. All fish oil goes through a purification process prior to packaging as a supplement. These authors conclude that we likely get less mercury from fish oil compared to fish.
  Harris WS. Fish oil supplementation: evidence for health benefits. Cleve Clin J Med. 2004;71(3):208-21.
  This is an excellent article on the clinical utility and safety of fish oil supplements. Dr. Harris also explains that there is essentially no mercury or other pollutants in fish oil. He also explains that triglyceride and ethyl ester forms of omega-3s are equally absorbed. This paper includes tables of values for omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, fish oil, and seeds/nuts/legumes.
  Simopoulos AP. The importance of the omega-6/omega-3 fatty acid ratio in cardiovascular disease and other chronic diseases. Exp Biol Med. 2008;233:674-88.
  Dr. Simopoulos has been writing about the importance of omega-3 fatty acids for many years. This is one of her latest review articles on the health benefits of omega-3s.
  Calder PC. n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, inflammation, and inflammatory diseases. Am J Clin Nutr. 2006;83(suppl):1505S–19S.
  This is a detailed review article about how dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids influence inflammation and the subsequent promotion or reduction of disease expression.
  Deckelbaum RJ et al. n-3 fatty acids and gene expression. Am J Clin Nutr 2006;83(suppl):1520S-25S.
  Omega-3 fatty acids influence gene expression to augment the expression of health. Some of the mechanisms include direct interactions in changing the composition of cell membranes and membrane function, activating or suppressing signaling molecules, interacting directly with DNA as well as with proteins that affect the processing of transcription factors, and affecting enzyme activities and vesicular endoplasmic reticulum–Golgi trafficking.
  Carpentier YA et al. n-3 fatty acids and the metabolic syndrome. Am J Clin Nutr 2006;83(suppl):1499S-504S.
  The metabolic syndrome X is a well-documented pro-inflammatory state. Anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids can influence various aspects of the metabolic syndrome such as by reducing insulin resistance, modestly increasing HDL cholesterol, reducing triglycerides, improving endothelial function, and improving the overall inflammatory and antioxidant status.

Pain & Inflammation
Chronic inflammation is
recognized as a root cause of
“modern” disease. Causing
pain, fatigue, cognitive
decline, and depression,
chronic inflammation
