Roex Omega Advantage
(High Potency, High Purity Fish Oil)
Supports Healthy Heart & Joints:
Each capsule of Omega Advantage contains 375 mg eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 300 mg docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 fatty acids. This is twice the EPA and DHA of standard potency fish oil products. To preserve freshness we’ve also added rosemary extract, ascorbyl palmitate, and natural tocopherols.
Every batch of Omega Advantage™ is molecularly distilled and extensively tested to be free from any detectable level of harmful environmental contaminants such as mercury, lead, arsenic, pesticides, PCB’s and dioxins. Peroxide levels, which are a measure of rancidity, are less than 10 meq/kg, which is an extremely low level.
It is common today to consume foods that are low or even completely deficient in essential fatty acids. The over-processing of food allows the it to have a longer shelf life but as a result, the make up of fatty acids in food has lost much of its nutritional value and balance. Hydrogenated oils have become commonplace in today’s food market. These oils do not provide the same nutritional benefits as natural oils (fish oils, olive oil, oils found in butter, etc.). These highly processed hydrogenated oils play a role in the current lack of proper health and nutrition today.
The Need to Supplement:
Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids are classified as “essential” because every living cell needs them for proper function and our bodies cannot produce them on their own. While primitive man lived on roughly equal amounts of Omega-6 and Omega-3, the dietary ratio for modern man is nearly 20 parts Omega-6 to 1 part Omega-3.
Essential Fatty Acids have slowly become more and more deficient in our diets. Although the increase in food preservation technology has contributed to the recent surge in EFA deficiency, it was first made known over 75 years ago. As more studies on the impact of EFA deficiencies are conducted, subtle effects of fatty acids in terms of skin changes, and visual function are only just being discovered.
Health Benefits of Omega Advantage:
Roex Omega Advantage EFA’s and Heart Health Research is finding that EFA’s in fish oils have a supportive effect on cardiovascular health. The evidence of the power of omega-3s to help heart health is so compelling that the American Heart Association recently revised its food guidelines to include omega-3s.
The full dietary guidelines may be viewed at the American Heart Association’s website, http://www.americanheart.org.
Brain and Nerve Function Associated with Omega EFA’s:
The human brain is primarily made up of Essential Fatty Acids. These EFA’s are required for the development and function of brain and nerve tissue, particularly the Omega 3’s.
Benefits of Omega EFA’s for Hormones:
EFA’s are vital in keeping hormone-producing (endocrine) glands active in the body. The endocrine glands secrete hormones that circulate within the body through the bloodstream. The hormones secreted affect cells within specific organs. The endocrine glands are instrumental in regulating one’s mood, growth and development, tissue function, and metabolism. Some examples of endocrine glands are the pituitary, thyroid, and adrenal glands.
Roex Omega Advantage are a blend of different oils and are classified as essential fatty acids (EFA’s).
