Essential Fatty Acids

 

 

Through personal experience we know that nutritional supplements play a key role in any recovery plan for environmental illnesses. Important nutrients are depleted during any chronic illness but this seems to be especially true for environmental illness sufferers who have been shown to exhibit deficiencies of multiple vitamins, minerals and other nutrients including vital anti-oxidant molecules such as cysteine and glutathione. We've selected a number of products over a range of categories that we recommend based on both personal experience, recommendation by leading physicians and review of clinical studies.

Twinlab Mega Twin EPA Fish Oil -- 1200 mg - 60 Softgels

Twinlab Mega Twin EPA Fish Oil -- 1200 mg - 60 Softgels

 

Manufacturer:
Most people in the U.S. consume too few Omega-3 fatty acids. An excellent way to supplement these essential fatty acids is Twinlab's Mega Twin EPA. It has a blend of fish oils that are concentrated to supply EPA and DHA - Omega-3 fatty acids that are beneficial in supporting many bodily functions. Omega-3's help to maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range. Omega-3's also help support brain, nerve and visual ability. Clinical studies have shown that a diet that has at least 400 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids (300 mg of which are EPA and DHA) supports cardiovascular health. Also, a recent study has shown that a diet with 768.8 mg of EPA nutritionally supports healthy joint function. For overall health and wellness, make Twinlab's Mega Twin EPA fish oil a part of your daily health regimen.

The Environmental Illness Resource:
The Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil have been demonstrated in clinical trials to be highly effective for the treatment of many environmental illnesses. For example, Dr. Basant Puri has shown that supplements high in the Omega-3 fatty acid EPA, can effectively treat chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, and developmental disorders such as ADHD. Dr. Puri found that to be effective an Omega-3 product should have a lot more EPA than DHA, two different Omega-3 fatty acids. This Twinlab product has twice as much EPA as DHA. Omega-3 fatty acids produce anti-inflammatory prostaglandins (short-lived hormones) within the body so help combat the symptoms of allergy and inflammatory conditions that might cause pain. EPA is especially important for brain function and has been shown to increase the important mood regulating neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine by up to 40%. EPA is also known to increase certain sleep promoting chemicals, therefore providing a greater quality of sleep that can benefit every environmental illness sufferer.

 

Note: It is a good idea to take extra vitamin E and other fat soluble antioxidants with polyunsaturated fatty acids as they are easily oxidized.

Jarrow Formulas Borage GLA-240 + Gamma Tocopherol -- 240 mg GLA - 120 Softgels

Jarrow Formulas Borage GLA-240 + Gamma Tocopherol -- 240 mg GLA - 120 Softgels

 

Manufacturer:
Gamma-linolenic Acid. GLA-240 is cold pressed, hexane-free oil from borage (Borago officinalis) seeds. Borage Oil is the highest potency source of GLA available, at 22-25% gamma-linolenic acid (GLA).
To ensure protection and product stability, Jarrow Formulas® borage products contain the added antioxidant gamma tocopherol, a form of vitamin E.

 

Fatty Acid Profile of Borage Oil:
GLA (18:3n-6) : 24%
Linoleic Acid (18:2n-6) : 36%
Oleic Acid (18:1n-9 : 17%
Misc. Fatty Acids : 23%

 

The Environmental Illness Resource:
As well as being deficient in the Omega-3 EFA's present in fish oil, environmental illness sufferers also are commonly deficient in the Omega-6 essential fatty acid GLA. Although the modern western diet is full of linoleic acid, the precursor to GLA and other Omega-6 EFA's, environmental illness sufferers commonly have problems converting it to these useful substances. This is a result of the enzymes needed for the conversion not functioning effectively due to a range of factors from nutritional deficiencies to viral infections. Thus, supplementing the diet directly with GLA ensures the body gets enough to produce important eicosanoids required to combat inflammation and many other functions. GLA has been shown to be very effective for controlling the symptoms of allergies. The Omega-6 fatty acids, starting with GLA, are also important, along with the Omega-3 fatty acids, for the integrity of the cell membrane of every cell in the body. This Jarrow borage oil supplement contains a high percentage of GLA, along with vitamin E to prevent the polyunsaturated oils from becoming oxidised (rancid).

 

Note: It is a good idea to take extra vitamin E and other fat soluble antioxidants with polyunsaturated fatty acids as they are easily oxidised.
