New Roots Herbal’s Omega 3/6/9 lipids are sourced from organic, non-genetically modified flax and borage seeds, along with pharmaceutical grade fish oil standardized to 40% EPA and 20% DHA. It is the most complete and potent essential fatty acid formula. This formula provides two times the EPA and DHA found in other EPA blends. And Omega 3-6-9 is manufactured using special processes that protect these sensitive oils from the heat, light, and oxygen.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) such as omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9, must be obtained in an individual’s diet. Fatty acids have important roles in the body, especially their role as an integral membrane component of all cell membranes. Therefore, any deficiency in EFA’s would greatly reduce efficiency of membrane rich areas in the body such as the brain. Studies have indicated that supplementation with fatty acids from the omega-3 family (alpha-linolenic acid – ALA, eicosapentaenoic acid – EPA, docosahexaenoic acid – DHA), the omega-6 family (linoleic acid, gamma-linolenic acid) and the omega-9 family (oleic acid) substantially improved the behavior and cognitive abilities of children with learning disorders.
