Omega Flax

Curegarden Natural Omega Flax is evaluable source of Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. The product is backed by extensive scientific research and clinical trials.
Omega 3 fatty acids in adequate quantity can favorably modulate the cell membrane characteristics to reduce or inhibit silent inflammatory responses that play major roles in coronary artery diseases, platelet aggregation, arthritis and other inflammatory disorders. Flax seed oil is a standardized concentrate of stable omega-3 fatty acid derived from pure flax seed oil. It is an excellent alternative to dietary supplementation of Omega-3 fatty acids.

The human body converts ALA (Alpha Linolenic Acid) into DHA and EPA, which are the building blocks for the development of brain and retinal cells. ALA is the most common omega-3 fatty acid in food and is mostly found in plant oils such as soybean, canola and flaxseed oils. Flax seed oil also plays an important role in maintaining cardiovascular health and joint function.

Flaxseed oil is the richest vegetarian source of the essential Omega 3 fatty acids that the body requires for proper functioning. However the body cannot synthesize it from other fats or trans-fats and needs to be consumed as part of the diet. Omega 3 fatty acids are of wider significance as dietary supplement of essential fatty acids for pregnant women, nursing mothers, infants, children, arthritic patients, cardiac patients etc.

Flax is a yellow flowering plant that is grown for its oil rich seeds. Flaxseed oil contains active ingredients that are capable of lowering cholesterol level and reducing platelet aggregation. Flax seed extract also contains vitamins, minerals, fiber and protein. Flax seed extract requires anywhere between a few days to as many as six weeks to be absorbed into the body before the full beneficial effects begin.

The protein in flax seeds is easily digested and contains all the amino acids needed for building a strong body. They also contain a special fiber called mucilage which removes toxic metabolic waste material from the colon and dried mucus. Mucilage helps to stabilize blood sugar levels, and is a natural laxative.

Omega - 3 Natural Essential Fatty Acids.

Omega-3 fatty acids are poly unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) found in vegetable and animal kingdom. Alpha Linolenic acid (ALA), the parent fatty acid of Omega-3 family is an essential fatty acid (EFA). It is not synthesized by the body and must be supplemented through diet.

Omega-3 fatty acids are found less in foods and flax seed oil and fish oil are two of the major sources. Flax seed oil is the world’s richest source of Omega-3 fatty acids (mainly ALA) apart from certain types of fish like sardine. Omega-3 fatty acids have a significant role as dietary supplement for essential fatty acids generally. It is particularly beneficial to cardiac patients, pregnant and lactating women, infants, arthritic patients etc.

Role of Omega-3 in healthy living

EFA perform two vital functions in the body. Their primary role is structural- as part of the membrane barrier surrounding the cells and organelles while the second function involves the communication between cells, known as signaling.

Omega-3 In cardiac health

The role of Omega-3 in treating cardiovascular diseases is a strong and most compelling evidence favoring its use. It helps reduce the production of pro-inflammatory agents. It produces potential anti-thrombotic effect, provides membrane stabilization in cardiac tissue and also has anti-arrhythmic effects. Omega-3 also enables lowering of triglyceride, contributes to reduced pulse pressure and total vascular resistance.

Supplements for Mothers and infants

Omega-3 fatty acid has been found to be useful in pregnancy in prolonging gestation and the prevention of preterm labor by inhibiting AA. DHA is of utmost importance for normal development of the brain, neural and retinal tissues in fetuses and newborns. DHA supplementation is mandatorily recommended for pregnant and lactating women by WHO in recognition of its role in improving IQ and Eye Q in children.

Arthritis

Patients with rheumatoid arthritis have consistently shown modest clinical improvement with the use of EFA supplements. Omega-3 fatty acids help handle arthritis by reduction of tumor necrosis factor, interleukin levels and other pro-inflammatory agents.

Omega 3 and Cardiovascular Diseases: Dietary supplementation with n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and Vitamin E after myocardial infarction

Publication:Lancet. 1999 Aug 7; 354(9177):447-55.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10465168

11,324 patients that survived recent (< or = 3 months) myocardial infarction were randomly assigned supplements of ω -3 PUFA (1 g daily, n=2836), vitamin E (300 mg daily, n=2830), both (n=2830), or none (control, n=2828) for 3.5 years. The primary combined efficacy endpoint was death, non - fatal myocardial infarction, and stroke.

Treatment with ω-3 PUFA, but not vitamin E, significantly lowered the risk of the primary endpoint (relative-risk decrease 10% [95% CI 1-18] by two-way analysis, 15% [2-26] by four-way analysis). Benefit was attributable to a decrease in the risk of death (14% [3-24] two-way, 20% [6-33] four-way) and cardiovascular death (17% [3-29] two-way, 30% [13-44] four-way). The effect of the combined treatment was similar to that for ω-3 PUFA for the primary endpoint (14% [1-26]) and for fatal events (20% [5-33]).

INTERPRETATION:Dietary supplementation with ω-3 PUFA led to a clinically important and statistically significant benefit. Vitamin E had no benefit. Its effects on fatal cardiovascular events require further exploration

Omega 3 and Inflammation: Stereo chemical assignment, anti-inflammatory properties, and receptor for the omega-3 lipid mediator resolving E1

Publication:Journal of Experimental Medicine, 2005 (Vol.201) (No. 5) 713-722 http://jem.rupress.org/content/201/5/713.full.pdf+html

The essential fatty acid eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) present in fish oils displays beneficial effects in a range of human disorders associated with inflammation including cardiovascular disease. Resolving E1 ( RvE1 ), a new bioactive oxygenated product of EPA, was identified in human plasma and prepared by total organic synthesis. At nanomolar levels, RvE1 dramatically reduced dermal inflammation, peritonitis, dendritic cell (DC) migration, and interleukin (IL) 12 production. We screened receptors and identified one, denoted earlier as ChemR23 that mediates RvE1 signal to attenuate nuclear factor-κB. Specific binding of RvE1 to this receptor was confirmed using synthetic [3H]-labelled RvE1. Treatment of DCs with small interference RNA specific for ChemR23 sharply reduced RvE1 regulation of IL-12. These results demonstrate novel counter regulatory responses in inflammation initiated via Rv E1 receptor activation that provide the first evidence for EPA-derived potent endogenous agonists of ant inflammation.

Omega 3 and Infant Brain: Maternal supplementation with very-long-chain n-3 fatty acids during pregnancy and lactation augments children's IQ at 4 years of age.

Publication:Pediatrics. 2003 Jan; 111(1):e39-44.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12509593

There is a growth spurt in the human brain during the last trimester of pregnancy and the first postnatal months, with a large increase in the cerebral content of AA and DHA. The fetus and the newborn infant depend on maternal supply of DHA and AA. The study examined the effect of supplementing pregnant and lactating women with very-long-chain ω-3 PUFA’s on mental development of the children, compared with maternal supplementation with long-chain ω -6 PUFAs. Children who were born to mothers who had taken ω-3 PUFA’s during pregnancy and lactation scored higher on the Mental Processing Composite of the K- ABC at 4 years of age as compared with children whose mothers had taken ω-6 PUFAs. The children's mental processing scores at 4 years of age correlated significantly with maternal intake of DHA and EPA during pregnancy. In a multiple regression model, maternal intake of DHA during pregnancy was the only variable of statistical significance for the children’s mental processing scores at 4 years of age. Maternal intake of very-long-chain ω-3 PUFAs during pregnancy and lactation is favorable for later mental development of children.

1. How is it different from the omega3 fatty acids of fish oil?

This is vegetarian source of omega3 fatty acids and also contain fibers

2. What are the functions of essential fatty acids?

Essential fatty acids have many functions throughout the body. They are involved in energy production, brain function, improves vision. EFAs are required for healthy skin and hair, and are required for normal nail growth.

3. How does it help weight loss?

Omega-6 slightly and omega-3 more effectively help reduce fat production in the body. They also increase fat burning and heat production in the body, and change the body from burning glucose to burning fats. Saturated, monounsaturated, and trans- fatty acids do not help to manage weight.

4. How does it reduce the risk of Cardiovascular Disease

Omega-3 can decrease most CVD risk factors, including high triglycerides blood pressure, platelet stickiness, fibrinogen, and lipoprotein(a). Omega-3 also keep the inside of our arteries smooth. Omega-3 and omega-6 keep the heart beat regular.
