1 OMEGA BIOPLUS Omega fatty acids Sources RDA
Deficiency of omega fatty acids Studies Product Key benefits Ingredients Supporting studies References

2 Omega fatty acids Omega fatty acids are essential fatty acids.Our body cannot synthesise them, so they must be consumed in the diet. Omega fatty acids consist of: ALA, Alpha-Linoleic Acid DHA, Docosahexanoic Acid EPA, Eicosapentaenoic Acid DHA and EPA are the most important ones people should definitely include in their diets

3 Sources of omega fatty acids
ALA EPA DHA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) (Alpha-Linoleic Acid) Salmon Sardines Cod liver Mackerel (Docosahexanoic Acid) Flaxseed Soybeans Linseeds Walnuts Salmon Sardines Tuna

4 Recommended Adequate Intakes (AI) for Omega Fatty Acids
(Food and Nutrition Board, USA, 2002) Note: Up to 10% of the above amounts (AI values) may be in the form of DHA + EPA

5 Distribution of Omega Fatty Acids

6 Signs/symptoms of essential fatty acid deficiency
Scaly or flaky skin (e.g. legs) Dry skin (e.g. feet/face/general) Cracking/peeling fingertips & skin (e.g. heel) Dandruff Dry, lack luster, brittle hair Soft, splitting or brittle fingernails Dull nails - lack of surface shine Slow growing fingernails Dry eyes Dry mouth/throat Menstrual cramps Excessive ear wax Excessive thirst Allergic (e.g. eczema/asthma/hay fever/hives) Crave fats/fatty foods Stiff or painful joints

7 Studies Omega-3 and Omega-6 PUFA and Cardiovascular Diseases Prevention The results of epidemiological studies and randomized controlled trials suggest that replacing dietary SFA with omega-6 and omega-3 PUFA lowers LDL cholesterol and decreases cardiovascular disease risk. Fish would provide about mg/day of EPA + DHA. Thus, some researchers have proposed that the U.S. Institute of Medicine should establish a dietary reference intake (DRI) for EPA + DHA.

13 Supporting Studies Omega 6 fatty acids play an important role in brain and heart function and in normal growth (Othman et al, 2009). Increasing the intake of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids has been associated with lower Coronary heart diseases risk (Harrine et al, 2009). Omega 9 fatty acid have high chemical stability ,which prevent the body from forming cholesterol plaques on the walls of the blood vessels (Gillingham et al ,1991). Omega 9 fatty acid that it reduce hardening of the arteries and improves immune function (Hibbeln et al, 2006).
