Orthomega Pearls 120CT
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential cornerstones of human nutrition. They are deemed "essential" because we need them for proper health, but cannot produce them on our own. We must therefore consume these fats through diet or supplementation. Omega-3 fatty acids are required for a number of body functions, from proper blood flow to brain development; these long-chain fatty acids are integral components of tissues and organ systems throughout the body, including the heart, skin, joints, eyes and immune system.
Orthomega® Pearls are sourced from the world’s least industrialized coastline in Chile, where cold, fresh water provides the cleanest, most sustainable source of fish in the world. Orthomega® Pearls provide 105 mg of EPA and 185 mg DH
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
In nature, omega-3s occur as alpha linolenic acid (ALA), found mostly in plants, and as long chain EPA and DHA, which primarily originate from cold-water fish. The body is able to slowly convert the shorter chain ALA to the more active long chain, EPA and DHA. However, many people lack the enzymes delta-5 and delta-6 desaturase necessary to make the conversion, making a higher dietary intake of EPA and DHA necessary. In addition, major changes in Western diet over the last century have led to a decrease in the general consumption of omega-3 fatty acids, and a dramatic increase in the dietary ratio of omega-6:omega-3.
