Pulse Healthcare Omega 3, 6, 9 contains the right balance of fish oil, flaxseed oil and sunflower seed oil. Omega 3 is broken down into two components, EPA & DHA. EPA & DHA are needed to maintain healthy growth and regeneration of every cell in the body and can be converted into prostaglandins, which regulate many bodily functions. All three omegas contained within this supplement are able to regulate levels of triglycerides in the blood, meaning they could be useful in helping to lower total cholesterol levels and maintain the correct ratios of HDL ('good') and LDL ('bad') cholesterol, thus slowing down the progression of atherosclerosis, a condition which causes hardening and thickening of the artery walls. Omega 3 is also needed to ensure proper functioning of the nervous system and healthy brain function. It could help increase our learning ability, improve mood, focus and memory. Fish oil helps increase the levels of serotonin in the body. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter, which basically means it is involved in sending nerve impulses through all the cells in the body and then eventually to the brain. It is essential in many processes such as regulating mood, and helping aid sleep. High levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as those found in fish oil, have been found in individuals who have stronger, healthier bones. This oil could help reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis and decrease the likelihood of developing stress fractures and other bone related conditions, such as osteoporosis in later life, particularly in women. Omega 6 contained in flaxseed could help with weight loss. Flaxseeds are high in fibre which can help support a healthy digestive system by enabling the digestive system to stay clean by encouraging regular bowel movements, therefore shifting excess waste, which can weigh heavy. Flaxseed could also help speed up the metabolism, meaning food consumed is burnt off quicker and is not stored as fat. It could also help the body to burn off existing fat stores as energy. Omega 6 is very popular in women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome (PMS), in particular symptoms such as mood swings, bloating and breast tenderness. People who suffer from PMS have been found to have low levels of omega 6 in their bodies. As well as helping reduce cholesterol levels, omega 9 can help promote the production of antioxidants. Antioxidants help to fight free radicals. Free radicals have been linked to contributing towards certain diseases such as cancers. Antioxidants can also help with boosting our immune system, which is our body's first line of defence when it comes to fighting illness and helps protect against heart disease.
