Core Naturals - Pure Salba Seed Oil - 12 oz.
Salba Oil....Nature's Richest Source of Omega-3s...Period
Salba Seed Oil contains more Omega-3 essential fatty acids than any other whole food source in nature. Each tablespoon contains over 8,300mg of Omega-3s (ALA). It is unrefined and cold-pressed at low temperatures to preserve full nutrient density, and is distilled for unsurpassed freshness.
Between 95-99% of Americans are Deficient in Omega-3s
Omega-3s play several vital roles in the human body: supporting cardiovascular wellness, maintaining healthy joints, enhancing mental clarity and mood, and promoting digestive wellness. Unfortunately, the typical American diet is loaded with Omega-6 and Omega-9 fats (think cheeseburgers and french fries).
Experts looking at the dietary ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids suggest that in early human history the ratio was about 1:1. Currently most Americans eat a dietary ratio that falls between 20:1 and 50:1. A healthy diet should consist of roughly 2-4 times more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3 fatty acids. For most of us this means greatly reducing the omega-6 fatty acids we consume while increasing our intake of omega-3 fatty acids.
ALA Versus DHA Omega-3s
With an abundance of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) Omega-3 fish oil products available on the market, why choose the ALA (alpha -linolenic acid) Omega-3s in Salba?
First, in some studies, ALA omega-3s have been shown to be more effective than DHA from fish oil. In the Lyon Diet Heart Study, researchers observed a 70 percent reduction in mortality with ALA – more than double the other trials that had used omega-3s from fish. There was also a significant reduction in coronary ‘events’ and these protective effects were found to start quickly. Subsequent studies have confirmed the power of plant omega-3 fatty acids in protecting the heart.
Furthermore, DHA Omega-3 is generally derived from fish oil, which has some potential drawbacks. Typically, the DHA supplements on the market are derived from fish farms. Not only is sustainability a concern, but these fish have been shown to have high levels of toxic contaminants, such as mercury and PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls).
