The Value of Essential Fatty Acids - Osumex 100% Pure Antarctic Krill Oil

Worried that consuming fat will make you fat? Our bodies require good, healthy fat for optimal brain and nervous system functioning and circulation.

Essential fatty acids, EFAs, are those that the body cannot create, and so they must be consumed. Foods rich in Omega-3 include fish, such as salmon and halibut, nuts such as walnuts, flax and chia seeds, and pasteur-raised meats.

The Omega-3 fatty acids in most plants are alpha-linolenic acids, ALAs. ALAs have short chains of carbon. Humans and animals convert them into two long-chain forms that are usable by their bodies. These are eicosapentaenoic acids (EPAs) and docosahexaenoic acids (DHAs).

The Standard North American diet is high in Omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-6 is polyunsaturated fat (or PUFA) which is essential to the body, as is Omega-3. While these are integral to human health for skin and hair growth, reproduction and bone health, they are commonly consumed from vegetable oil, often used in cooking. Vegetable oils such as soybean, safflower, sunflower, corn and cottonseed oil are used in many of the foods that we eat regularly. The imbalanced ratio of high Omega-6 to low Omega-3 fats in these oils significantly contributes to inflammation in the body.

It is the ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 that is important, more so than avoiding Omega-6 fats entirely. When we are in excess of Omega-6 versus Omega-3 fatty acids, we put our health at risk. Eating foods rich in Omega-3, such as fish and flax, helps to achieve the right balance.

The challenge is that many people do not have time to cook for themselves and their families each day. Ingredients such as fish and pasteur-raised meats may not be available to you for reasons of location or expense. Supplementation is often recommended to improve our levels of Essential Fatty Acids. It is a convenient, affordable way to consume the Omega-3 your body requires.

Osumex has developed the ultimate in Omega-3 supplementation. Our 100% Pure Antarctic Krill Oil is more bioavailable than fish oil. A significant portion of the long-chain Omega-3 in krill oil is in phospholipid form. Fish oils are almost exclusively Omega-3 triglyceride fatty acids. Because phospholipid Omega-3s are water dispersible, our bodies can better absorb them and thereby optimize the Omega-3 fatty acids contained.

Our Antarctic Krill Oil also contains the powerful antioxidant Astaxanthin, recognized for its free radical fighting capabilities.  Because it has been proven to cross the blood-brain barrier, Astaxanthin is beneficial for the eyes as well as brain and nervous system functioning. Astaxanthin has anti-inflammatory properties, further aiding in circulation throughout the body. This is important to note for anyone concerned about blood circulation to both the hands and feet and/or to the brain.
Antarctic Krill lives in the coldest and most pristine waters on earth. Unlike some fish oils, additives are not needed to maintain krill oil’s integrity or lengthen its shelf life. This product is all-natural. We source our krill from the Antarctic Ocean, exercising eco-friendly and sustainable practices. No more than 10% is harvested at any time.

Osumex Antarctic Krill Oil is encapsulated in vegetable soft gels. Our customers report to us that it does not produce the repeating effect of some other EFA oils, and that it has helped them with inflammation they have experienced throughout the body.

We’re here to answer any questions you may have about our Antarctic Krill Oil capsules, or any of our other products. Call, email or visit us to discuss the benefits of supplementing with Osumex Krill Oil.
