This mixed fatty acid supplement supplies important fatty acids that are often difficult to obtain from the diet. OmegaThera™ was formulated to favor omega-3 fatty acids over omega-6 fatty acids to help maintain a healthy fatty acid ratio when added to typical diets that tend to be too low in omega-3.† Omega-3 fatty acids are present as alpha-linolenic acid, an essential dietary fatty acid, as well as EPA and DHA, activated forms of omega-3 known for their ability to support a variety of physiological processes, including regulation of inflammation and lipoprotein metabolism, and brain and immune function.† Omega-6 fatty acids are also supplied as gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), the activated form of omega-6 whose conversion from linoleic acid (LA) may be compromised by poor diet and other factors. Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a variant of linoleic acid, favorably influences fat metabolism and offers unique cell protective benefits.† Oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid, is also present as a natural constituent of flax seed oil. OmegaThera™ augments the actions of MultiThera® multivitamin formulas by combining concentrated amounts of key nutritional fatty acids derived from premium plant seeds and fish oils in one convenient product. Natural carob and vitamin E added to the softgel maintain freshness by protecting against fatty acid oxidation.
