Omix 3 The only 100% pure, ultra fresh, full-spectrum omega-3 from India.
It is, by every measurable standard, the best omega-3 supplement you can buy. But don't take our word for it. Bring this checklist to the store and see for yourself.
Flax seed oil is another popular form of omega-3. It is a lovely, simple fatty acid, but it contains no EPA/DHA. In a nutshell, Omix 3 can do everything that fish oil can.
Omega-3 and Healthy Cell Function
Omega-3, in Omix3, is like a traffic light for your cell membrane. When your cells have enough of it, nutrients are able to come in, wastes are able to leave, and wastes are prevented from re-entering the cell. This is why the benefits of omega3 are so diverse – it truly helps every single cell in your body do its best work.
Omega-3 and the Cell Membrane
What makes omega-3 such an important part of the cell membrane is that it's a long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid? When enough omega-3 is in the cell membrane, its long and flexible structure prevents the cell membrane from becoming too rigid for nutrients and wastes to come and go as they should.
Omega 3 is also known as a mood food - Balanced omega-3 and omega-6 ratio
In general, western diets contain around 10 times more Omega-6 than Omega-3. Medical bodies such as the National and Medical Research Council recommend increasing the amount of Omega-3 consumed so that there is an even balance with Omega-6. Omega-6 is derived from a range of vegetable oils including sunflower, safflower, sesame, peanut, as well as polyunsaturated margarines or spreads, dairy and fatty meats.
The body uses Omega-3 to make anti-inflammatory molecules which are effective against inflammatory conditions including arthritis, asthma, migraines and osteoporosis. On the other hand the body uses Omega-6 to produce pro-inflammatory molecules. We need both types of Omega as long as Omega-6 is balanced by Omega-3.
Consuming more Omega-3 is beneficial against excessive bone loss because of the higher ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6. When the ratio is even, the damaging effect of Omega-6 is reduced which researchers believe is due to the anti-inflammatory molecules protecting the body against the pro-inflammatory ones.
Other research has found that a healthy heart benefits from a balance of the Omega oils.
As previously mentioned flaxseed contains Lignans. Lignan compounds, which may be found in other seeds and grains, are converted in the body into hormone-like molecules. These molecules have been found to provide some protection against breast cancer. Other benefits for women include: reduced dry eyes, hot flashes, help with ovulation and balancing the hormones.
The Lignans are recognized as antioxidants and beneficial for viral, fungal and bacterial infections.
The Omega-3 and Omega-6 oils are essential fatty acids which can only be obtained from food sources and cannot be synthesized.
