Fat in the diet as received a bad reputation for causing heart disease and making us gain weight. But, over the last few years the field of nutrition has learned more about the health benefits of dietary fat. We now understand that not all fats are created equal. Certain fats actually have significant and important health benefits. The healthy fats are the polyunsaturated fats, found in foods such as fish, walnuts, and plant-based oils. These fats are called “essential” fatty acids because we must consume them in our diets. This is why we have included these polyunsaturated fats in our Omega 3-5-6-7-9 Wild Salmon Oil formula.
All chronic diseases- diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, arthritis- are linked to inflammation. Inflammation is increased by poor diet, lack of exercise, pollution, and stress. Polyunsaturated fats are anti-inflammatory; they reduce inflammation and give your body extra power to combat chronic disease. Unfortunately, most diets tend to be lacking in these healthy fats, since many people tend to eat more of the saturated or trans fats instead. To counterbalance our less than ideal diets, a daily supplement of healthy fats may help improve and rebalance intake.
Wild Salmon Oil
We chose Wild Salmon Oil as the base of our omega formula because healthy polyunsaturated fats occur naturally in wild salmon. Wild Salmon specifically has a perfect fatty acid ratio. Fat must be consumed in the correct ratios for ideal health and wild salmon oil is nature’s way of providing a perfectly balanced source of fatty acids. Each individual fatty acid found in the supplement has a particular health benefit. The benefits include:
- Omega-3 (EPA and DHA): support the heart, brain , joints, and skin
- Omega-5: supports health of the skin and cardiovascular system
- Omega-6: supports joint and skin health
- Omega-7: supports heart and skin health
- Omega-9: supports heart health
We made sure to use a cold-press method to extract the oil to ensure all of the essential fatty acids remained intact. We wanted to be sure to capture every benefit of eating wild-salmon in one just supplement, without losing any nutritional value. Healthy fats can be very sensitive to heat, light, and oxygen exposure, therefore we needed to prevent damage and rancidity from occurring.
Our Omega 3-5-6-7-9 formula was designed with Southeast Asian diets in mind. It is meant to help support heart, brain, and skin health, as well as reduce inflammation caused by modern lifestyles.
