Omegas Unpacked

By Seabuck Staff , published Sep 29, 2017

Omegas provide a myriad of health and beauty benefits. These remarkable fatty acids are now as popular as multi-vitamins or calcium supplements. Fatty acids (FA) have many important roles in the body. They are the primary component of stored fat, making it crucial for human health and survival. FA are important building blocks of cell membranes and regulate inflammatory processes.[1]

Omega 3

Omega 3 is at the front of the pack. It's known as an "essential fatty acid" because the human body cannot synthesize it and it must come from the diet. Omega 3 has important benefits for your heart, brain and metabolism. Plant based omegas in particular boost health with their rich antioxidant qualities.[2]

Omega 6

Omega 6 is the next best known omega. Omega-6 is another essential fatty acid that is crucial for human health. Omega 6 plays a part in everything from skin, hair and bone health to metabolism. Many Americans have too much omega 6 from refined food sources. Keeping a balance of omega 3 and 6 is best for human health. Sea buckthorn oil has a ratio of nearly 1:1 omega 3 and 6- the perfect balance for humans. [3]

Omega 9

Omega 9 differs from 3 & 6 because the body can synthesize it. Omega 9 can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. It supports healthy HDL cholesterol levels in the body. It can also help stabilize mood and increase energy. [4]

Omega 7

Omega 7 helps the body maintain itself in a variety of ways. It can support mucous membranes throughout the body and can promote tissue regeneration. The cellular support provided by omega 7 is also great for supporting skin. [5]
