Features and Benefits

The Skinny on Fat: Why are Omega-3 -6 -9 important?

As one of the three macronutrients that provide your body with energy, dietary fat gets a lot of bad press. In fact, dietary fat is crucial for optimal health—you just have to know how to choose the right kind of fats. In general, saturated fats should be avoided; instead, choose a wide variety of plant-based polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats.

Polyunsaturated fats include Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. Specific types of Omega-3 and Omega-6, such as ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) and LA (linoleic acid) are actually essential because they cannot be synthesized in the body and can only be obtained from what you eat. These essential fatty acids are part of critical pathways for many biological processes. Traditional plant-based sources of Omega-6 such as olive, sunflower, canola and sesame can be refined and offer limited polyunsaturates such as GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) which can provide additional health benefits and are an important part of a healthy diet.

Based on convincing evidence from epidemiologic studies and randomized human clinical trials, the World Health Organization recommends your daily intake of polyunsaturated fats range from 6 to 11% of your total calories26 to help:

  • Manage healthy cholesterol levels
  • Support normal cardiovascular health

The role of Omega-3s in supporting cardiovascular health is well-established—these fatty acids are essential fuels for mechanical, electrical and synthetic activities of the heart27. Independent studies show that Omega-3 and phytosterol intake is linked to the management of healthy cholesterol levels; recent studies show a synergistic and complementary effect on cholesterol management when both Omega-3 and phytosterols are taken together28.

Additionally, volumes of research on Omega-3s have also shown they play an important role in:

  • Decreasing inflammation29
  • Normal brain development, structure and function30
  • Normal skin function and appearance31

Why should I use Vega Antioxidant Omega Oil Blend?*

Organic, cold-pressed and unrefined, Vega Antioxidant Omega Oil is a blend of nine virgin oils including organic hemp, flax, pumpkin seed and coconut, plus a unique combination of antioxidant seed oils from green tea, black cumin, black raspberry, blueberry, cranberry and pomegranate.

Every green tablespoon of Vega Antioxidant Omega Oil boasts:

  • A balanced two-to-one ratio of 6 g of Omega-6 to 3 g of Omega-3
  • 3 g of Omega-9
  • 29 mg of phytosterols
  • 77 % DV vitamin E
  • Chlorophyll

What makes Vega’s blended, plant-based Omega oil better?

The typical North American diet tends to be much higher in Omega-6 fatty acids than Omega-3 fatty acids. The optimal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 may vary depending on the individual, their diet, activity level and specific health concerns; however, a diet rich in polyunsaturated fats—with emphasis on a higher total daily intake of Omega-3 and good Omega-6s, like GLA—is preferable to ensure good health.

Carefully selected for their complementary Omega, antioxidant and phytonutrient profiles, each ingredient in Vega Antioxidant Omega Oil Blend brings a unique contribution to the overall nutritional picture of every tablespoon, giving you a full spectrum of healthy fats that can’t be found in a single-source supplement.

How Can I Use Vega Antioxidant Omega Oil Blend?

Try Vega Antioxidant Omega Oil in salad dressings, dips, soups, and smoothies, or add it to your favorite vegetable, rice or pasta dishes for a convenient and pleasant-tasting Omega boost. Vega Antioxidant Omega Oil Blend can be used with all cold, warm and hot foods, but should not be used for baking, frying or other high-temperature cooking.

Vega Antioxidant Omega Oil Blend does not require refrigeration prior to opening because its high level of antioxidants acts as a natural preservative.

Vega Antioxidant Omega Oil Blend Ingredients

Hemp seed oil

Considered by many to be nature’s most perfectly balanced oil, hemp seed oil is delivers a 3:1 Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio. Hemp seed oil also contains oleic acid (Omega-9), gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), and stearidonic acid, a combination that is unique among edible seed oils. Hemp seed oil’s GLA is significant because of its role in eicosanoid and prostaglandin biosynthesis—both compounds with anti-inflammatory properties32.

In addition, hemp seed oil contains antioxidants like Vitamin E and carotene, phytosterols, and chlorophyll, which gives it a deep green color. As a bonus, hemp seed oil has a pleasant, nutty flavour that goes well with most recipes.

Flax seed oil

One of the richest sources of Omega-3 in the plant kingdom, more than half the fat in flax seeds is alpha linolenic fatty acid (ALA). A perfect complement to hemp seed oil, flax seed oil delivers a 0.3:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-9.

Pumpkin seed oil

Highly unsaturated and stable, pumpkin seed oil provides Omega-9 and -6, in addition to being an especially rich source of antioxidant vitamin E and carotenoids.

Coconut seed oil

While virgin coconut oil contains 90% saturated fatty acids, it also contains high amounts of medium-chain triglycerides, which are easily digested, providing an immediate source of energy33. Studies suggest medium-chain triglycerides may improve the absorption of Vitamin E in your body34. Coconut oil is also rich in free-radical scavenging phenolic acids.

Antioxidant oil blend

Green tea seed oil

Featuring a nutritional profile similar to olive oil, green tea seed oil is also rich in antioxidant phytosterols, polyphenols and vitamin E. Green tea seed oil does not contain caffeine.

Pomegranate seed oil

Nearly 95% punicic acid—a conjugated linolenic acid (Omega-5)—pomegranate seed oil demonstrates strong, antioxidant activity through vitamin E (alpha, delta and gamma tocopherols) and phytosterol content (beta-sitosterol, stigmasterol and campesterol).

Black cumin seed oil

Used in traditional medicine for thousands of years, black cumin seed is rich in antioxidants, especially beta-sitosterol. Thymoquinone—the active compound identified in black cumin seed— displays strong, natural antibacterial activity35 and is the subject of numerous scientific studies.

Black raspberry seed oil

Higher in tocopherols than many nuts and seeds, black raspberry seed oil contains four different forms of Vitamin E (alpha and gamma tocopherol, beta and gamma tocotrienol).

Blueberry seed oil

Featuring one of the highest ORAC scores among berry seed oils, blueberry seed oil is an antioxidant powerhouse, boasting a wealth of carotenoids and total phenols36.

Cranberry seed oil

With more total sterols than most other berry seed oils, cranberry seed oil has a unique concentration of beta and gamma tocotrienols, making it a valuable source of vitamin E.
