Lignan Omega Twin by Barlean's
Barlean's - Balance Omega Twin Flax & Borage Oil Combination 1000 mg. - 60 Softgels
Barlean’s Omega Twin is a significant advancement in essential fatty acid nutrition. Barlean's Omega Twin combines Barlean's organic flaxseed oil, the world’s richest source of alpha-linolenic acid (LNA) Omega-3 with Barlean's borage oil, the world’s richest source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) Omega-6. A special synergism exists between these two important fatty acids that may potentiate their effects.
- Both LNA and GLA may support the body's response to conditions associated with allergy, inflammation, pain and swelling.
- Studies have shown that GLA may support the healthy nerve function and joint health of individuals with Diabetic Neuropathy and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
- Essential Fatty Acids may be effective in the healthful production of skin cells in individuals with the skin condition Dermatitis and the combination skin condition of Dermatitis/Eczema.
What are "Omega-3" and "Omega-6" fatty acids?
Omega-3 and omega-6 are families of essential fatty acids used to make local hormones that control the local functioning of tissues throughout the body. The omega-6 fats tend to have pro-inflammatory effects, and the omega-3s tend to have non-inflammatory effects. We need to have a balanced intake of mega-6s and omega-3s for optimal health. The essential fatty acids include the omega-6 fatty acids, (as found in most common vegetable oils and products from livestock animals raised on grain, and the omega-3 fatty acids, as found in flaxseed oil, wild ocean fish, wild game, products from livestock raised on green vegetation, and fish oil). Most people consume too much omega-6 fats and insufficient omega-3s. Therefore, we need to decrease the intake of omega-6 sources and increase the intake of omega-3 sources.
Take 1-3 capsules 3 times a day. May be taken with or without meals.

Haven't used it long enough to realize any benefit
So far so good. I have been using this product for about 3 weeks now only taking 1 a day and have noticed that I am fuller at meals.
