During our thirty two year history of providing Chiropractic Care and Health and Lifestyle advice to our patients we have never stocked any supplements because we had been unable to verify the effectiveness of them, however we now have access to indisputable scientific research proving how important it is to supplement our diets with Omega 3.

Biological Importance of Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids

Due to dietary practices virtually everyone in Western society is deficient in Omega 3 EFAs. Without these essential nutrients, cells cannot function properly and illness is inevitable even though it may take years before symptoms arise.

It is both dangerous and illogical to wait until illness develops to begin to take care of yourself or your children or your pets! How can we PREVENT ILLNESS or PROMOTE HEALTH if we wait until we are already ill before we take action? Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) are some of the most crucial essential nutrients for human and other animal health ever identified. Over 2000 scientific studies provide evidence of the importance of EPA and DHA essential fatty acids for the maintenance and restoration of health and the prevention of disease.

Omega 3 EFAs are extremely important in the structure and function of every cell in the body and the function of your cells is what determines your health. Your cells are what determine your immune function, healing, hormone levels, heart function, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, digestion, moods etc. Literally, the function and health of your cells determines every aspect of your health.

EPA and DHA omega 3 EFAs are part of every cell membrane and are required to maintain the proper shape, flexibility or fluidity, and “slipperiness” of cell membranes. The flexibility and “slipperiness” of cell membranes is important for the flow of blood through blood vessels and decreasing the risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart attack. This fluidity or flexibility of cell membranes is also crucial to ensure the proper flow of nutrients into cells as well as the proper shape of cell receptors for hormones such as insulin (insulin sensitivity).

In addition, EFAs are required for proper nerve signal transmission (memory, concentration, cognitive ability, muscle coordination and strength) and immune function including defense against cancer. EPA and DHA omega 3 EFAs also play a major role in regulating inflammation. EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids produce anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. This is very significant because inflammation is at the root of virtually all of the common chronic illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and depression as well as the autoimmune and atopic diseases such as arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, irritable bowel, psoriasis, eczema, allergies, fibromyalgia, lupus, and multiple sclerosis. Inflammation is also a major factor in dysmenorrhea (menstrual pain and/or cramping), headaches, and back and neck pain.

Omega 3 EFAs play a role in virtually every human function including growth and development, digestion, brain and nerve function, immune function, hormone production and regulation, maintenance of skin and bones, regulation of healing and inflammation, heart function, vision, cholesterol levels, and even emotions and behaviour.

This is why consuming sufficient amounts of Omega 3 EFAs has been shown to help people with so many different illnesses. In reality, consuming sufficient amounts of Omega 3 EFAs will help anyone that is deficient in Omega 3 EFAs whether they have a diagnosed illness or not. This does not mean that a deficiency in Omega 3 EFAs is the only cause of all illness; that would be an unscientific and illogical claim. However, it does absolutely mean that if someone is deficient in Omega 3 EFAs their cell function and thus their health is compromised and will be improved when they begin to consume sufficient amounts – this is an indisputable scientific fact. Obviously if Omega 3 EFAs are needed for proper cell function and cell function determines our health then Omega 3 EFAs are a significant determining factor in health. This is exactly what research indicates.

As previously mentioned, what is even more alarming than the pandemic deficiency in EPA and DHA omega 3 fatty acids is that virtually all people living in industrial nations are now toxic with the omega 6 fatty acids and saturated fat that is so common in modern diets. Research indicates that the ratio of omega 6: omega 3 fatty acids in the average modern diet is as high as 20:1. The evidence indicates that the proper healthy ratio is 1:1.

Being toxic with omega 6 fatty acids and deficient in omega 3 fatty acids is a deadly combination that is shown to increase the chances of illness in people of all ages. Illnesses associated with omega 6 fatty acid toxicity and/or omega 3 fatty acid deficiency include ADHD, allergies, eczema, asthma, breast cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, lowered immunity, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, fibromyalgia, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s, painful menstruation, back pain, neck pain, and headaches.

Fish oil provides up to 200 times more EPA and DHA per gram than flax. Flax oil is a healthy source of LNA but it is not a healthy alternative to fish oil as a source of EPA and DHA.

Children who consume sufficient amounts of EPA and DHA from fish oil like Omega Sufficiency® have been shown to have less allergies, less eczema, learn better, and be less likely to have ADD or ADHD.

About Omega Sufficiency:

Omega Sufficiency™ is the purest, most natural fish oil available with natural EPA:DHA ratios and NO Artificial Chemical Concentration. Because of this Omega Sufficiency™ is aligned with the human genetic requirements for Omega 3 consumption and thus provides the maximal health and prevention benefits.

Omega Sufficiency™ is the world’s premier EPA/DHA omega 3 fish oil. Each teaspoon or 4 capsules provides 720-825 mg of EPA and 480-550 mg of DHA omega 3 essential fatty acids which have been scientifically shown to be a crucial requirement for health and important in the prevention of illnesses such as heart disease, arthritis, ADD, depression, stroke, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, osteoporosis, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, eczema, learning and cognitive development problems, and Alzheimer’s.

Omega Sufficiency™ is extracted in a licensed pharmaceutical grade facility from cold water anchovies, herring and sardines that are the purest source of omega 3 fish oil. Our oil is purified in a non-chemical molecular distillation process that removes all trace amounts of heavy metals, PCBs, organochlorides, and organophosphate pesticides resulting in the safest, purest source of EPA/DHA fish oil possible. As the oil is purified it is immediately infused with our natural, proprietary antioxidant blend consisting of rosemary extract, ascorbyl palmitate and natural mixed tocopherols. This process ensures the greatest oxidation protection possible. There simply is not a better, purer source of EPA/DHA omega 3 fatty acids in the world as our third party testing results indicate.

Our extraction process keeps the fish oil in its most natural form possible, this is crucial because human beings are genetically designed to ingest, digest, and absorb EPA and DHA essential fatty acids in the form they are found in nature, not in any concentrated form produced by chemical processing. If science and experience has taught us anything it is that we cannot improve upon nature.

Omega Sufficiency™ is flavoured with 100% natural strawberry/lime or lemon extract – it actually tastes good! Because of the high quality and purity of our oil there is no fishy taste, no fishy smell, and no fishy aftertaste. Even kids like it! For those who do not like the consistency of the oil we recommend adding the oil to juice, a smoothie, or to salad dressings or other food.
