Ultra Omega 550+ (Retail $27.90)
Unique mix of omega-3, 6, and 9 fatty acids plus CLA.
This mixed fatty acid supplement supplies important omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that are often difficult to obtain from the diet by combining four nutritional oils in one formula. Ultra Omega 550+™ was formulated to favor omega-3 fatty acids over omega-6 fatty acids to help maintain a healthy fatty acid ratio when added to typical diets that tend to be too low in omega-3.
Omega-3 fatty acids are present as alpha-linolenic acid, an essential dietary fatty acid, as well as EPA and DHA, activated forms of omega-3 known for their ability to support a variety of physiological processes, including regulation of inflammation, immune function, lipoprotein metabolism, and brain function.
Omega-6 fatty acids are also supplied in several important forms, including linoleic acid (LA), an essential dietary fatty acid, and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), the activated form of omega-6 whose conversion from LA may be compromised by poor diet and other factors. Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a variant of linoleic acid, favorably influences fat metabolism and offers unique cell protective benefits. Oleic acid, an omega-9 fatty acid, is also present as a natural constituent of flax seed oil.
