The Real Thing Mega Omega 3+6+9

Omega-3 rich fish oil plus omega-6 and -9 dense borage oil equals all the good fatty acids you need in the right ratio. It’s an omega all-rounder.

 

GET THE SPECS

What? One dose of Mega Omega 3+6+9 dishes up 1 200mg of omega 3 – mostly EPA and DHA. This is more than the recommended daily requirement. It also delivers 220mg of the omega 6s gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) and linoleic acid, and 80mg of omega 9 or oleic acid. This all adds up to the optimal omega ratio for you.
Why? Omegas 3, 6 and 9 are essential for good health (find out exactly how, in our BACKGROUND section). But you need the right ratio to get it right. And most Western diets get this wrong, providing too much omega 6 and too little omega 3. Mega Omega 3+6+9 delivers the perfect balance for better health.
What else? Like all Mega Omega oils, 3+6+9 is molecularly distilled and certified pharmaceutical-grade.

 


FACT: Most people get an omega-6 overdose. So setting things straight calls for less omega 6 and more omega 3 – particularly the health-promoting long-chain omega 3s, EPA and DHA. That’s why Mega Omega 3+6+9 delivers the right ratio. An optimal omega combo.


 

HOW DO YOU GET THE OMEGA BALANCE?
It’s a family drama. Omega 3 is clearly the favourite child, but what about its omega 6 and omega 9 siblings? Basically, it’s all about balance – particularly the omega 3, omega 6 fatty acid balance.

Modern meals are not fair and square. While omega-3 rich foods feature lower down on the modern menu, omega 6s are everywhere...

  • Baked and processed foods
  • Egg yolks, meats and animal products
  • Vegetable and cooking oils like canola, corn, peanut and sunflower oils.

Omega 9 fatty acids are also readily provided by the modern diet. Plus the body is also able to produce a limited amount of omega 9, provided omega 3 and omega 6 are present.

 

HERE'S THE TRICK

Omega 3s and omega 6s are metabolised by the same enzymes. So they need to be consumed in a balanced proportion...

  • The ideal omega 6 to 3 ratio is between 1:1 and 4:1
  • But most urban diets deliver omega-6 heavy ratios between 10:1 and 30:1.

You don’t need to do the math to see the problem.

Mega Omega 3+6+9 will help balance the books. It carries the right omegas in the right amounts. Omega 3s are delivered by the Mega Omega fish oil and omega 6 and 9 by the pure, cold-pressed borage, or Starflower oil, which has been shown to help...

  • Eczema and other skin disorders
  • High cholesterol and blood pressure
  • PMS
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • The immune system – it has a natural anti-inflammatory function.
  • It is also an important intermediary in the metabolic conversion of linoleic acid into prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) which regulates the action of many hormones.

 


FACT: Evening primrose oil might be more famous, but borage oil is more serious. In fact borage oil contains more than twice the amount of the omega 6 fatty acid, gamma linoleic acid (GLA) than evening primrose oil. Serious enough for you?
