Product Information

Description

Heart Healthy

500 mg
Omega-3s
DHA + EPA
  • Heart Healthy alternative to fish oil
  • From a sustainable plant source
  • NO fishy aftertaste

Introducing Ovega-3, an all-vegetarian DHA + EPA Omega-3 supplement from a safe and natural plant source (algae); not fish. With 500mg of total omega-3s, Ovega-3 provides the same heart healthy benefits of traditional fish oil but without the unpleasant fishy aftertaste associated with some fish oils. Most people think that fish are the original source of DHA and EPA, but it's really the algae they eat that naturally contain these important omega-3s. Ovega-3 has gone directly to the source and bypassed the fish. You can be sure that Ovega-3 is 100% free of PCBs and mercury because it is sourced from plants that are grown outside of the ocean. As one of the highest quality omega-3 supplements available, Ovega-3 is also from a sustainable source and does not deplete the ocean's supply of fish.

The Omega-3's in Ovega-3 are from an all-natural, vegetarian source (algae); not fish. Most people think that fish are the original source of DHA & EPA omega-3s, but it's really the algae they eat that naturally contain these heart healthy omega-3s. With Ovega-3 you get all the health benefits of DHA & EPA without the worry of ocean-borne pollutants and toxins potentially found in certain fish.

Health Notes

Omega-6 Fatty Acids

Omega-6 Fatty Acids
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Atherosclerosis
Dose: Follow label instructions
Though the effect has not been studied with supplements, an analysis of several controlled trials found that replacing saturated fats in the diet with omega-6 fats reduces the risk of coronary heart disease. (more)
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
(more)
Atherosclerosis
Dose: Follow label instructions A diet high in omega-6 fatty acids, found in certain vegetable oils such as corn, safflower, grapeseed, and sunflower oil, and in other foods such as nuts and seeds, appears to protect against atherosclerosis. Higher dietary intake or high body levels of omega-6 fatty acids has been associated with reduced coronary heart disease risk in numerous preliminary studies,1 and an analysis of several controlled trials found that replacing saturated fats in the diet with omega-6 fats reduces the risk of coronary heart disease by an average of 24%.2

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Dose: Refer to label instructionsArachidonic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid found in animal fats that the body uses to make inflammatory substances. In a controlled study,1 people with rheumatoid arthritis were instructed to reduce their arachidonic acid intake to less than 90 mg per day by eating minimal amounts of meat, no egg yolks, and only low-fat milk products. Compared with a group following a typical Western diet, the low arachidonic acid diet led to a 14% reduction in the number of tender and swollen joints. A second part of this study also found that the anti-inflammatory benefits of fish oil were significantly better when combined with the low arachidonic acid diet.

Omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids that perform essential functions in the human body. The most abundant member of this family in food and in the body is linoleic acid. Other members include gamma-linolenic acid and arachidonic acid. Linoleic acid is considered an essential fatty acid since it cannot be synthesized by the body. However, other members of the omega-6 family can be made from linoleic acid.

Omega-6 fatty acids have numerous important roles in the body.1 They contribute to the structure and function of cell membranes and play a part in the regulation of gene activity inside the cell. Arachidonic acid is especially abundant in the brain, and may be important for normal brain development of the fetus and infant. Both arachidonic acid and gamma-linolenic acid can be converted to prostaglandins and related substances that affect inflammation, blood clotting, smooth muscle tone, and many other body activities.
