Balanced amounts of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids – in fish gelatin gelcaps
- promotes healthy heart and brain function
- 300 mg EPA, 200 mg DHA per gelcap
- 40 mg omega-6 GLA per gelcap
- molecular distillation removes heavy metals and other potential contaminants
Omega PlusVET contains an omega-3/omega-6 ratio designed to provide a healthful balance of these important essential fatty acids (EFAs). As with the significant animal health benefits of the omega-3 fatty acids, the omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) offers similar benefits. Omega PlusVET utilizes borage oil, a rich source of GLA (higher than evening primrose oil), in a predominantly fish oil blend for optimal fatty acid ratios.
The formation of these important EFAs in the body by precursor dietary fatty acids is hindered by numerous factors including aging, nutrient deficiencies, pet foods containing trans-fatty acids or hydrogenated oils, and living in a household with heavy smokers. Thus, supplementation may be essential.
Studies using a combination of omega-3 fatty acids and GLA demonstrate positive benefits for bone and joint health as well as for cardiovascular and respiratory health.
In addition to the known benefits of fish oil (see SuperEPA?VET), GLA has been found to provide a wide variety of health-related benefits, including support of skin and other connective tissue, female reproductive health, eye health, and cognitive health.
As always, Thorne Vet provides the highest quality, purest oils available – molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.
