9Optimum Omega: Q&A Does Optimum Omega contain any omega-6's or 9's? The omega-3 fatty acids provide a balance to the typically large amounts of omega-6 fatty acids in our diet.

10Optimum Omega: Q&A How does Optimum Omega work? Omega 3 fatty acids are considered "essential fatty acids" because they are vital for health, yet cannot be synthesised by the body. They therefore must be supplied in the diet. Essential fatty acids are necessary for normal growth, healthy skin, arteries, nerves, and for keeping our metabolism running smoothly. Fish oils are excellent sources of omega 3 fatty acids. Two common omega 3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are both present in Optimum Omega.Omega 3 fatty acids in fish oil are highly unsaturated and may easily undergo oxidation. The vitamin E present in Optimum Omega has antioxidant properties that help prevent the pro-oxidant effects of fish oil, and also provides nutritional benefit. Odorless garlic oil is Optimum Omega's final beneficial ingredient to provide a combination product that supports the cardiovascular system.
