If you are keen on achieving optimal overall health and wellness, omega fatty acid supplements just might be what you’re looking for. A specific group of healthy fats, omega fatty acids have been linked to numerous health benefits, such as supporting healthy bones and joints, maintaining healthy cardiovascular function, promoting optimal cognitive health, as well as supporting a healthy immune system.
However, not all omega supplements are created equal. Make sure the omega supplement you consume has a well-balanced combination of omegas 3:6:9 to maintain optimal health.
Now, you can get your fill of these health-promoting nutrients – and their impressive array of health benefits – with the help of Health Ranger Select Ahiflower Oil and Chief Originals® Ahiflower Oil Softgels.
Gently processed in the USA using patented extraction methods to retain maximum nutrition, our ahiflower oil and softgels are extensively lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology. Both Health Ranger Select Ahiflower Oil and Chief Originals® Ahiflower Oil Softgels are also vegan, non-GMO, and lab verified for cleanliness and purity.
What are omega fatty acids?**
Omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids are all important dietary fats, with each one having a number of health benefits for your body.
Omega-3 fatty acids, for instance, are an integral part of human cell membranes and are also known to support optimal cardiovascular and mental health, as well as sensible weight management plans.
According to medical experts, while there are many types of omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) are by far the most common. These are also considered as "essential fats" as they cannot be produced by the body on its own.
Omega-6 fatty acids are known to support healthy energy production and optimal immune health. Just like omega-3s, these are considered "essential" and must be sourced from one's food.
Omega-9 is a non-essential fatty acid that can support cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range.
According to medical experts it is important to strike the right balance when it comes to the levels of omega-3, -6 and -9 fatty acids in one’s diet, as an imbalance may cause more harm than good for your body.
Most organizations recommend a minimum of 250–500 mg combined EPA and DHA each day for healthy adults. The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for ALA, meanwhile, is set at 1.6 g per day for men and 1.1 g per day for women.
According to nutrition experts, one can also get omega fatty acids from foods such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, herring and other fatty fish. Essential fatty acids can also be found in plants such as chia, hemp and flax seeds, vegetables like spinach, Brussels sprouts and purslane, and nuts and legumes such as walnuts and soybeans.
However, depending solely on these as sources can pose risks for individuals as these have fluctuating amounts of these fatty acids.
In addition, these sources do not usually provide the mentioned fatty acids in suitable proportions, such as 2:1:1 for omega-3:6:9.
This is where omega fatty acid supplementation using ahiflower oil comes in.
Ahiflower oil is derived from the seeds of the Buglossoides arvensis plant. Once considered a weed in Europe and several countries in Asia, this herb is now grown sustainably as an agricultural crop valued for its remarkable oil and nutritional content.
Considered to be the richest non-fish source of omega fatty acids on the planet, ahiflower oil contains omega-6 GLA as well as stearidonic acid (SDA), which is more readily and more efficiently converted into DHA and EPA than oils sourced from plants such as flax, chia, hemp, perilla, sancha inchi and echium.
Ahiflower oil’s true edge over other plant-based oils, however, is its impressive, uniquely balanced combination of essential omega fatty acids. This means that when you take ahiflower oil supplements, such as Health Ranger Select Ahiflower Oil and Chief Originals® Ahiflower Oil Softgels, you are bound to get the optimal amount of omega fatty acids necessary to sustain your body’s overall health and wellness.
What are the advantages of getting my omega fatty acids from ahiflower oil?**
Supports a healthy cardiovascular system
Ahiflower oil is packed with heart-healthy omega-3s. The SDA in ahiflower oil is efficiently metabolized by the body. Consuming ahiflower oil, when combined with a balanced diet and a healthy and active lifestyle, is known to support a healthy cardiovascular system.
Promotes healthy bones and joints
Ahiflower oil contains high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids that support strong and healthy bones. In addition, it also has omega-6 GLA and SDA, which help maintain healthy joints and mobility.
Supports healthy cognitive performance and mental well-being
According to experts, regularly consuming healthy doses of DHA and other omega fatty acids, such as the ones present in ahiflower oil, helps support a healthy brain and nervous system.
Helps maintain healthy immune system function
A study published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology suggests that fatty acids such as DHA and EPA support the healthy function of the immune system. According to researchers, this means that DHA and EPA – both present in high quantities in ahiflower oil – can help support the body’s immune system in its fight against external threats.
Uplifts your mood
According to multiple studies, fatty acids such as EPA and DHA – both of which are present in ahiflower oil – can help uplift one’s mood.
While fish oil remains the world’s biggest source of omega fatty acids, it does pose several disadvantages and risks for its consumers, such as the following:
Fish oil supplements put consumers at risk for mercury contamination. A toxic heavy metal, mercury can damage your organs and neurological system. While relatively rare in the earth’s crust, the world’s oceans and other bodies of water contain traces of this toxin, which then accumulate inside the bodies of fish – the result of a natural process called biomagnification or bioamplification. Because of this, many omega-3 supplements derived from fish may be contaminated with levels of mercury that may be toxic to consume.
Fish oil supplements are notorious for improper preservation. Many fish oil-based supplements are prone to breaking down more quickly than plant-based omega supplements, especially when they are not properly preserved.
Production of fish oil supplements promotes the use of unsustainable and untraceable sources. While there are claims that fish-derived omega-3s help preserve marine species, this is often just marketing hype. In fact, according to several studies, farming fish for supplements actually depletes both the supply and diversity of fish. In addition, this highly unsustainable practice also contributes to the spread of invasive species that not only compete with native fishes for resources but also consume native fishes themselves.
Fish oil supplements do not have a complete ratio of omega fatty acids. According to medical experts, obtaining all the fatty acids that your body needs can be difficult. This is because most supplements on the market offer just one or two types of omegas at a time. Moreover, several studies have shown that in order to get the most out of these good fats, you need to consume all of them together in a properly balanced ratio.
Ahiflower oil, such as Health Ranger Select Ahiflower Oil and Chief Originals® Ahiflower Oil Softgels, has none of those potential risks or disadvantages.
On the subject of omega fatty acid supplements, nothing comes close to Health Ranger Select Ahiflower Oil and Chief Originals® Ahiflower Oil Softgels, which are made from sustainably and ethically farmed ahiflower from the United Kingdom.
