Historically, humans consumed about equal amounts Omega-6 and Omega-3, both polyunsaturated fats. One important reason to keep the balance between these two fats is the body's inflammatory response system. Omega-6 is pro-inflammatory and Omega-3 is anti-inflammatory. The human body needs both. Unnecessary inflammation in the human body is believed to be a key component behind a long list of ailments including coronary heart disease, arthritis, eczema, Alzheimer and the list goes on. Omega-3, particularly EPA, is needed to naturally prevent or curb chronic inflammation. The ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 should be from 1:1 to 5:1. However, typical Western diets provide a ration ranging from 10:1 to 30:1.
Omega-3 is an important building block in the human body. The brain, heart, eye and nervous systems are, or should be, rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA. Without it, the body doesn't seem to work as efficiently. The three most common types of omega-3 fatty acids are the short-chain ALA, which is derived from plant sources, and the long-chain EPA and DHA which are derived mainly from fish. Denomega’s marine oils are rich in long-chain EPA and DHA and maintain the natural broad spectrum Omega-3 profile. The clear benefit of fish oil over fish is the ability to purify the oil. An optimized refining process removes most of the pollutants to levels below typical detection.
