Description

Omega 3-6-9- While small percentages of essential fatty acids can be obtained from food, the majority of the population tends to consume far more of the saturated ‘bad’ fats than essential ‘good’ fats (Omega-3 and -6). NOW Omega 3-6-9 is an ideally balanced, full-spectrum source of these three “good fats”. By utilizing high potency Omega-3 from flaxseed and canola, Omega-6 from primrose and black currant and Omega-9 (or Oleic acid, a non-essential fatty acid) from Canola and Flax, our formula helps correct this common imbalance, while minimizing any chance of reoccurring reverse imbalances.*

From the FDA's website: "Consumption of omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. FDA evaluated the data and determined that, although there is scientific evidence supporting the claim, the evidence is not conclusive (see nutrition information for fat content)".

FAQ

Omega-3 FAQ's

What is Omega-3 and what is it good for?

Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid (EFA), also known as a polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA). It is derived from both animal and plant sources, although Omega-3 from fish oil is the most common supplemental form. Fatty acids form the main useful fraction of fats and oils and are necessary for overall health. Because your body cannot manufacture essential fatty acids, you must get them from food or supplemental sources.

Plant sources such as Flax Oil contain the parent Omega-3 fatty acid called Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). The human body normally converts ALA to the longer chain fatty acids EPA and DHA, which are used for prostaglandin formation and other cellular needs. Fish Oil contains the desired Omega-3 fatty acids in their more useful EPA and DHA forms. ALA requires enzymatic conversion to generate EPA and DHA.

Are the Omega-3 Fish Oils tested for EPA/DHA and Cholesterol; as well as Peroxide Value, Mercury, PCBs, Dioxins, and other contaminants?

Yes. Independent laboratories have tested our Omega-3 Fish Oil products for these and other active constituents and contaminants. Our Omega-3 Fish Oils meet or exceed safety standards set by the FDA, the state of California and the CRN (Council for Responsible Nutrition) Monograph.

Is your New Omega-3 Fish Oil softgel pharmaceutical grade?

There is a lot of confusion caused by supplement distributors who claim to have a pharmaceutical grade Omega 3 Fish Oil. There is no such thing in the United States, as the official USP (United States Pharmacopeia) monograph that defines the testing specifications necessary to qualify Omega 3 Fish oils as pharmaceutical grade has never been published. Anyone claiming to have “pharmaceutical grade” fish oils is simply over-hyping their product by claiming to meet a non-existent standard. NOW does not claim this, as it is simply not possible.

However, there is a voluntary CRN (Council for Responsible Nutrition) monograph that is being utilized to define the specifications necessary to qualify a p
