Super Omega 3-6-9 (1200mg) Overview
NOW Foods Super Omega 3-6-9 is a complete essential fatty acid supplement and a best-seller in its category. The "3-6--9" refers to three types of nutritional fats; two are essential nutrients and must be obtained from diet or supplements (omega 3 and 6) and one is non-essential (can be made in the body) but still important biologically. NOW Foods combines the best source of omega 3 fatty acids, fish oil concentrate, with additional omega 3 support from flax oil. Borage oil is used to supply high levels of omega 6 fatty acids with naturally high levels of valuable GLA. There is a small amount of high-quality vitamin E added as a natural preservative antioxidant, and at 20 IU, it's a nutritionally significant amount and more than most similar products use.
As you may know, most Western diets already provide enough or even excessive amounts of omega 6 fatty acids, creating a relative deficiency of omega 3s. So for most people, only omega 3s need to be supplemented. Of course, not everyone eats a typical Western diet. Vegetarians, vegans, the elderly and those on very low-fat diets may not obtain optimal levels of either omega 3 or 6. For these healthy eaters, NOW Foods Super Omega 3-6-9 is a convenient way to cover all the essential fatty acid bases with one product.
