Omega-3's and omega-6's belong to a family of fats known as essential fatty acids. The right balance of these two types of fatty acids is important for the healthy functioning of many parts of the body, including brain development. Unfortunately, because the human body cannot manufacture these essential fatty acids, they must be provided through diet. These omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are found in fish, and seafood, some nuts and seeds and green leafy vegetables.
In a well-balanced diet, both omega-3's and omega-6's should be present. In modern diets, however, saturated fats and vegetable oils – all loaded with omega-6's – have become predominant. At the same time, the intake of omega-3 fatty acids from fish have declined while modern farming and commercial food production have further stripped foods of omega-3 content in an effort to prolong shelf life. The ideal omega-6 to omega-3 relationship is quoted at 4 to 1, but in persons who do not eat fish twice a week, experts believe that ratio is closer to 20 to 1, and is responsible for many of the health problems that plague us.
Given the heavy metals and other toxins found in fish, people are undertandably concerned about consuming significant amounts of seafood. And yet, by not consuming fish, we all miss the opportunity to obtain important omega-3 fats in the diet. Supplementation with a high-quality omega-3 product may be the answer.
WINOmeg3complex™ is a pharmaceutical grade omega-3 ethyl ester concentrate which is obtained from purified fish oil. The basic material is crude deep-sea fish oil.
WINOmeg3complex ™ contains 88% omega-3 ethyl esters with a 60% concentration of EPA for maximum anti-inflammatory benefit, making it approximately three times more potent than most omega-3 supplements currently available. This high concentration and optimal EPA to DHA blend is enhanced with natural lemon oil in the soft gel capsule for great lemon taste. One WINOmeg3complex™ soft gel capsule supplies 540mg of EPA and 160mg of DHA. The ratio of EPA to DHA is 3.3 to 1; a balance many experts believe is optimal for good health.
