Benefits of Omega-3 Articles
Diet-Based Disease and Omegas
Today’s diets are mostly processed foods. This is characteristic of many of today’s industrialized societies. We are seeing diet-based diseases increasing dramatically. About 40 years ago, health authorities recommended that western diets increase their consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) to help lower cholesterol levels. A dramatic increase then took place in the consumption of vegetable oils – rich in essential Omega 6 PUFAs, but not necessarily Omega 3 PUFAs.
Fish oils naturally contain Omega 6 and Omega 3 in a ratio of at least 6:1 and often as high as 14:1. Plant seeds or vegetable seed oil such as corn even have a greater imbalance, corn oil is 60:1 Omega 6 to Omega 3 and sunflower oil is 20:1. It has now been found by that an excess of Omega 6 actually interferes with the benefits of Omega 3, thus making the existing Omega 3 shortage even more acute.
Auum Omega products provide the Omegas in a ratio of 1:1 quickly helping to balance serum levels.
Auum Omega 3 Products all contain mammalian oil which stands out because of these benefits:
- ideal ratio for the Omega 3 and Omega 6 in our bodies is also 1:1
- DPA (Docosapentaenoic Acid) a form of Omega 3 unique to mammals missing in plant and fish
- absorption is said to be 80-85 % sublingually if held under the tongue for 60 seconds
- whole food supplement not refined, bleached and deodorized (RBD) like many other oils
- includes essential fat soluble Vitamins A, D and E (based on product formula)
- free of toxins and heavy metals naturally
- natural flavours like lemon and rosemary oils
A Balanced Wholesome Diet is the Prime Link to Good Health
It has long been established that a good diet is the prime link to good health. When Japan moved from its traditional diet of simple marine food, to the western-based diet of processed foods, their rate of disease rose dramatically. Conversely, when Norway was forced to return to its traditional diet of marine life during World War II shortages, the death rate (of heart disease, cancer, schizophrenia, etc.) dropped by 40%. This rate however returned to normal levels as soon as the war ended and the Norwegians returned to the western diet. It is of great interest that during the war the decrease in Norwegian heart disease – coincided with a 50% increase in Omega 3.
Another example of the beneficial effects of a traditional marine diet (high in Omega 3) is found with the High Artic Inuit. Despite their large daily fat intakes the Inuit blood lipids remained within normal levels, their incidence of heart trouble was low and they were relatively free from Artery Hardening. Like the Norwegians and the Japanese before them, as the Inuit have adopted western diets, the occurrences of diet-based diseases have risen to the western levels.
Why choose Auum Omega 3s?
Our bodies neither produce nor store Omega 3 internally and must be obtained from external sources. As most of our food intake continues to be highly processed food, with little or no fish or marine sources, Omega 3 is often best obtained through supplements.
Auum’s product combines EFAs – EPA, DHA and DPA in the perfect balance and ratio that our body requires in order to function optimally.
Fish oils naturally contain Omega 6 and Omega 3 in a ratio of at least 6:1 and often as high as 14:1. Plant seeds or vegetable seed oil such as corn even have a greater imbalance, corn oil is 60:1 Omega 6 to Omega 3 and sunflower oil is 20:1. Auum Omega products provide the Omegas in a ratio of 1:1 quickly helping to balance serum levels.
However, the good news does not stop there. The Auum liquid formulation is designed to be taken under the tongue (sublingually). Liquid means increases our absorption by about 100%. By holding the oil under you tongue for 60 seconds or more, the nutrients are directly, efficiently and almost immediately absorbed into our bloodstream.
As well, Auum Omegas are bio-identical chemically to the Omegas our body requires. If we were to rely on plant or fish oils in order to obtain this essential fat, Omega 3, our bodies would need to convert the Omegas in order to effectively use it. Often we are not making the conversions either because of stress, processed foods, etc.
The good news is that if you supplement with Auum Omega 3 Sublingual-D, you will also notice all kinds of other good side effects as a result of providing high quality nutrition to your body in order to achieve a healthy balance.
