Product Information

While the omega-3 fatty acids have significant health benefits, the omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) offers similar benefits.* Borage oil is a rich source of GLA (higher than evening primrose oil). Omega Plus provides an omega 3:6 ratio designed to provide a healthful balance of these important essential fatty acids.* Because the typical diet contains significantly more omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids, fish oils make up a greater percentage of the product.

Studies yielding positive benefits from a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and GLA demonstrate benefits for bone health as well as the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.* Studies have found a combination of GLA with EPA and DHA helps maintain already normal LDL:HDL ratios and triglyceride levels.*

Omega Plus has recently been improved – it now contains a higher concentration of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Recent technology has permitted an increase in the amount of EPA and DHA in each gelcap. This more concentrated formula provides the amounts of EPA and DHA that recent research says is warranted, without having to take extra capsules.* As always, Thorne Research provides the highest quality, purest fish oil available – molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.

Omega-3s, DHA and EPA: Vital Lipids for the Brain Webinar

Parris Kidd, PhD, presents a lively, in-depth discussion of the effects of omega-3 fatty acids and phospholipids on brain function, including mood, cognition, and behavior. The omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are a key to normal inflammatory processes and are essential components of phospholipids in neuronal cell membranes. Dr. Kidd discusses the clinical importance of EPA and DHA, as well as the various supplemental sources and doses of these vital lipids.

Clinical Depression: The Connections Between Fish Oil, Folate, Methylation, and Neurotransmitters Webinar
