It is formulated with great care using only vegetarian ingredients of the highest quality, and is a naturally good source of dietary fiber, iron, magnesium, zinc, vitamin B6 and folic acid. There are no synthetic vitamins, minerals, preservatives, additives, artificial sweeteners, flavorings or colors added.
Omega Blast is cholesterol, gluten and yeast free.
Designing Health manufactures and packages this masterfully blended product using special conditions to ensure the freshest delivery of omega 3 essential fatty acid and other nutrients.
Omega Blast meal replacement energy drink has a unique and refreshingly different texture, tastes delicious and is easy to prepare. It provides you not only with balanced calories and omega 3 essential fatty acids, but at the same time, is an excellent source of protein. A single serving delivers 18 grams of heart healthy soy. Even when prepared using water, one serving (60 g) of Omega Blast contains 40% of the daily value for protein! As of October, 1999, the FDA approved the following health claim that describes the benefits of protein form soy:
Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 25 grams of soy protein a day may reduce the risk of heart disease.
While carbohydrates are the most efficient fuel for energy production in living organisms, proteins are the major building blocks of our whole body. The only thing the body has more of than protein is water. Proteins repair and rebuild tissues and improve the immune system. Muscles, skin, hair, nails, bones and internal organs are protein; so are enzymes, which influence every function of the body.
We selected Nutrisoy‘ from ADM, a heart healthy soy protein concentrate that contains 90% protein in the form of amino acids (the building blocks of all protein in the body). As a result, this form of protein is extremely digestible!
Each serving of this marvelous drink is a source in your daily diet of 1200 mg of the rare and absolutely essential omega 3 essential fatty acids.
Fatty acids are the building blocks of fats of all kinds. The essential fatty acids (EFAs) are polyunsaturated. There are only two such fatty acids that are essential…absolutely necessary for life and health but must be obtained from our diet. These two essential fatty acids are the omega 6 and the omega 3 families. The omega 6 EFAs are quite prevalent in our daily food intake, but the vital and elusive omega 3 EFAs are rare in the typical American diet. This is because they are very reactive and are changed from the way mother nature intended by heat, light and oxygen. This is why Designing Health has developed patented formulations, processes and packaging that eliminates these factors thereby delivering to our customers the correct ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 EFAs in their unaltered state. Omega Blast also delivers a generous level of the non-essential (but important)omega 9 fatty acid.
The source of omega 3 in Omega Blast comes from the flaxseed that is incorporated in our OMEGA 3 BASIC‘. OMEGA 3 BASICa‘ contains flaxseed of the highest quality. Flaxseed is the richest vegetarian source of the omega 3 EFAs. The oil contained in flaxseed has over two times the amount of omega 3 that is contained in fish oils.
When foods such as fish or flaxseed are eaten, the body produces series 3 prostaglandins from the omega 3 EFA. These, derivatives (EPA and DHA) that are produced by our bodies from omega 3, act on the cellular level in a variety of disease fighting ways that includes anti-clotting and anti-inflammatory responses that reduce or prevent auto-immune diseases like arthritis, lupus, psoriasis and asthma. They help lower:" ":r health.
Fat is the third nutrient that supplies energy to the body besides carbohydrates and proteins. Fat is high in calories (1gram of fat provides 9 calories, while the other two provide 4.5 calories per gram). However, without fats absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E and K would not be possible. Fats are also responsible for healthy skin and hair and are the building blocks of a large part of the brain’s active tissues.
Children need fat! Fat is necessary to support a child’s rapid psychological development and physical growth and are therefore essential (especially EFAs) for infants and teens.
As with many diet related nutrients, you need to strive for balance and moderation…get your daily EFAs and reduce intake of saturated fats and refined oils.
Omega Blast is a wonderful way to start your day!
