Omega 3 Oil Supplement
Omega 3 Deficiency
Omega 3 fatty acids are deficient in most people.
There is a terrible widespread deficiency of Alpha Linolenic Acid, the Omega 3 source Essential Fatty Acid, and of the Omega 3 fatty acids that are derived from it.
Omega 3 fatty acids are severely lacking in most people's diet, which are needed for brain, nerves, skin, heart and circulatory as well as immune functions; and for preventing arthritis, cancer, heart disease, M.S., fibromyalgia; for weight control, and more.
Medical researcher, Dr. Donald O. Rudin, M.D., contends that the level of Linolenic acid in the American diet has been reduced 80% in the last 100 years. He has found that Omega 3 fatty acid deficiency is the basic cause of major mental illness today. (Biological Psychiatry, Vol. 16 No. 9, 1981)
Most people get far too much Omega 6 fatty acid (in almost all oils & fats), and nowhere near enough Omega 3 fatty acid. Our common foods have plenty of Omega 6 EFA, but hardly any Omega 3 oil. As a result we have an epidemic of Attention Deficit Disorder, mental disturbances, stressed, anxious people, and heart problems, as well as unneccessary pain and illness, even death.The Omega 3 source ESSENTIAL Fatty Acid (efa) is Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA). An "essential" nutrient means that it is a primary nutrient that MUST come from food sources; the body can't make it from other materials. In most cases there are secondary nutrients that are derived from an essential nutrient. ALA forms the Omega 3 fatty acid, Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and others.
Improving The Brain & Nerves
DHA is a proven brain & eye food needed for mental and visual function. It is a key part of the structure of gray matter of the brain and the retina. Correct transmission of signals in the brain, nervous system and eyes is dependant on an adequate amount of DHA.
Mood, mental sharpness, learning, memory, and visual acuity, are all improved by restoring deficiency of DHA. This helps reduce mental illness; and makes people function better under stress. Quality of sleep is improved also.
Increasing Omega 3 fatty acid levels can improve focus and mental clarity and calm stressed nerves. This would be very helpful for kids' performance in school as well as adults' accomplishments on the job and seniors' ability to think clearly.
A pregnant woman needs a great deal more Omega 3 than normal, both for the developing baby, and for her own greater needs with the extra stress and to replace what the fetus draws.
The epidemic of Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.) is in large part due to Omega 3 deficiency in children, particularly too little DHA. This is absolutely crucial for fetuses and infants to have it for proper brain and nerve development.
Reducing Pain & Inflammation
Additionally, Omega 3 oil is needed for production of a key Prostaglandin that reduces inflammation and pain, and restores normal chemistry after a stressor keys the "fight or flight" response.
WIthout this, we have stress biochemicals circulating much of the time, which is not healthy for the heart, the adrenals and other organs, and which makes us more susceptible to inflammation and illness, including: arthritis, high cholesterol, heart attacks & strokes, diabetes, cancer, and other serious problems.
Omega 3 fatty acids are necessary for the formation of Prostaglandin 3, a biochemical that is required to shut off the "stress chemistry" initiated by a stress event, such as a scary moment or being upset by another driver in traffic.
The stress biochemicals, such as steroid hormones and cholesterol, called forth by our "fight or flight" reactions, continue circulating and become problems unless shut down.
Arthritis pain and other "-itises", aterial disease, diabetes, and even cancer, can result from the repeated unchecked circulation of stress biochemicals as well as from free radicals and other toxins. Omega 3's can help reduce these inflammations and prevent serious diseases.
The quality of the skin, hair and nails are improved by the Omega 3's in flax oil. Many people's skin problems have improved.
Help With Cancer
Studies done years ago in Germany by Dr. Budwig demonstrated benefits of nutrients found in flax seed for cancer patients.
Her studies suggested that it was important to have a protein food to be eaten with flax oil so that lipo-proteins could be formed to deliver the needed fatty acids. Cottage cheese was recommended as a source of lipo-proteins. (Proteins serve as carriers in the body for other nutrients to be received by cells as nourishment.)
Actually, the whole milled flax seed with its 22% protein, including all the essential amino acids, is a much better way of providing those needed proteins with the Omega 3 oil -- all contained in the same food.
Oils vs. Whole Flax Seed
Although Omega 3 fish oil capsules and flax oil are quite popular, these products are missing the high quality protein available from whole flax seed. Also there are problems of greater concern with these items.
Certain fish oils are high in Omega 3 fatty acids -- dark-backed, torpedo-shaped, cold water fish such as cod, mackerel and sardines, as well as salmon. However, there is a major problem of contamination of fish with mercury, PCB's, etc. And you would have to eat a lot of fish to get a good supply of the Omega 3 fats.
Further, the Omega 3 fish oil provides only derivative Omega 3 fatty acids -- EPA and DHA, rather than the primary essential source, Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA).
Many people have heard about and taken flaxseed oil. The problem is that this, like most oils, begins going rancid as soon as it is pressed. Exposure to oxygen begins the free radical formation that causes rancidity. The older the oil is the more rancid it is.
Nearly all fish oil and flax oil products are rancid. A significant amount of time has probably passed since the oil was extracted; and it is unlikely that the product has been refrigerated at all times. In any case, refrigeration does not stop the deterioration, it only slows the process down. So both flaxseed oil capsules and Omega 3 fish oil capsules are likely to contain rancid oils.
Organic flax seed is the food highest in Alpha Linolenic Acid, and the best food source for getting the needed Omega 3 fatty acids derived from it. Consuming high quality, properly milled organic flaxseed with a high oil content is the best choice for obtaining ALA. Milled flax seed has many tasty uses.
For those wanting more concentration of Omega 3 oils, we do have a mercury-free Omega 3 oil supplement available, which is produced with the highest standards of testing and quality control in production:

Super Omega-3 EPA is a source of two fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
The body uses omega-3 fatty acids as one of the primary components of cell membranes. Omega-3s are also beneficial to the structural system and to the skin.
Ingredients: Super Omega-3 EPA softgels contain approximately 1,000 mg fish oil, with a ratio of 33:16 EPA to DHA (380 mg EPA, 190 mg DHA) per softgel capsule. It also contains lemon to significantly reduce the aftertaste from fish oil and to reduce gas.
Adults: Take one capsule 2-3 times daily.CLICK HERE to order 60 capsules of Super Omega-3 EPA for $25.70 + $4 postage (U.S. customers only -- international customers contact us for arrangements)
OMEGA 3 From Flax Seed Oil
Until recently, experts believed the best sources of omega-3 were fish oils. While fish oils are a good source, flax seed oil contains twice as much omega-3 essential fatty acids as fish oil products, without the fishy aftertaste.
