Greetings! I trust you are well and living Qssentially. Let’s jump right into this month’s topic – Q Omegas: what makes it different, what makes it better, and what makes it POP.
Q Sciences has a master plan-and each product is carefully chosen and crafted towards the goal of optimal health for people of all ages and conditions. Next to the superior micronutrient foundation provided by EMPowerplusTM Q96, the next order of business is to address the issue of essential fatty acids (EFAs). We knew from the get-go that an omega product was near the top of the list, but, as always, it needed to be something truly revolutionary to pass the “fatty acid test”! Unless you are lucky enough to eat salmon twice a day, you may be in dire need of balanced supplementation with omega 3, 6, and 9 omegas in the proper proportion-about five times as much omega 3 compared to omega 6. These amazing oily compounds are involved in many of the crucial biological processes that keep our bodies healthy. This means purifying the organ systems, optimizing the cell function, and protecting tissues (heart, brain, lungs, liver, arteries, muscles, and nerves) from the degenerative aging process. Clinical studies have shown that adequate levels of the omega 3’s DHA, EPA, and ALA have profound benefits throughout the body. If you regularly take raw fish and seed oils, your circulating levels of EFAs will increase. As a result you will live longer and be healthier, improving or completely preventing devastating chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and dementia. This is not a theory, as there are literally thousands of clinical studies from around the world that bear this out in no uncertain terms.
We included oils from wild, North Atlantic cold-water fish (salmon, mackerel, etc.) that provide over 250 mg of DHA/EPA per capsule, along with an additional 65 mg of alpha linoleic acid (ALA) from flax seed oil and 50 mg of GLA (an omega 6 fatty acid). ALA is an important omega 3 that is missing from pure fish oil capsules. This is literally all that we can pack into one capsule! When comparing this to other omega capsules be sure and look at the serving size, as many manufacturers make it seem as if they have very high levels of omega 3s but list a serving size as up to three capsules. If you have heart disease, memory issues, or otherwise feel you need more omegas, just take an additional capsule daily before a meal. To say that omega-3s are popular is a vast understatement. But-newsflash-oil and water still don’t mix! The shelves are full of omega capsules, most of which are just a mix of fish oils of uncertain origin and quality. That is why we designed Q Omegas to be more bioavailable, rather than just the usual glop of oil that is hard to digest and absorb. Try this simple test that clearly
