NaturePlus’ synergistic oil blend is derived from non-genetically modified seed from New Zealand. This formulation provides a good balance of Omega-3 in the form of Alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA); Omega-6 with high level of the beneficial Gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA) and Omega-9 from Oleic acid. Good fatty acids are required by the body to maintain health and support wellness.
Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). These are often referred to as the good dietary fats.
Technically oleic acid is not an essential fatty acid because the body has the ability to manufacture it. Oleic acid is a monounsaturated Omega-9 fatty acid which is another source of healthy fat important for our health. Oleic acid has larger molecules and has a tendency to slide past each other without bonding with other molecules, thus ensuring the free flow of blood without forming plaques that block the arteries.
We need these healthy fats for good health
Dietary fats are the building blocks of lipids and the main components of our cell membranes – healthy fats are needed to build healthy cell membranes.
One of the main criteria for our essential fatty acid products is purity and freshness. Our guarantee is that every capsule contains only pure fatty acids that are freshly extracted from oil seed grown in New Zealand. Natural Vitamin E is added as an antioxidant to preserve the freshness of the oil. The fresh oil is immediately encapsulated to capture its freshness. We do not use oil off the shelf. We also do not add other oil or preservative to our capsules. Only freshly extracted top quality fatty acid is good enough for us.
