Echiomega Echium Seed Oil (sourced from Echium plantagineum) provides the richest natural source of the omega-3 SDA, offering support for cardiovascular health and eye function, maintaining anti-inflammatory and immune response, and promoting healthy skin.

Directions
  • Adults and children aged twelve years and over should take 2-4 capsules daily.
  • Children aged two to twelve years should take 1-2 capsules daily.

It is not advisable to exceed the above dose unless advised by a healthcare practitioner. Take Echiomega with food for optimum absorption.

Indications

Echiomega contains approximately 73% polyunsaturated fatty acids, of which 26% are omega-6 and 47% omega-3. This optimal omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 1:1.8 makes it an ideal oil for nutraceutical application. Echiomega is also the highest commercially available source of SDA, a unique omega-3 fatty acid that has known benefits for immune function and for regulating inflammatory pathways. Furthermore, as the direct precursor to EPA, SDA can synthesise up to 5 times more EPA than ALA alone, making Echium Seed Oil a superior alternative to other plant-derived oils such as flaxseed or hempseed oil.

EPA is a very important fatty acid that plays an integral role in the proper functioning and structure of the brain. EPA may improve the cardiovascular system by reducing the stickiness of platelets in the blood and by lowering blood pressure. It is also converted into prostaglandins (hormone-like substances which control many bodily functions) and leukotrienes (important for the correct functioning of the immune system) which regulate inflammation and pain, and also help to maintain healthy joints.

The fatty acid GLA is vital for the structure of the brain – it ensures that cell membranes are permeable, thus contributing to efficient brain function. GLA is the precursor to dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA), which is converted into prostaglandins that regulate inflammation, pain, blood clotting and fluid balance. Furthermore, oils that contain both SDA and GLA raise EPA levels significantly better than oils that contain SDA alone. Oleic acid, usually associated with the ‘Mediterranean diet’, has been shown to slow the development of heart disease by lowering total cholesterol levels and raising levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDL or ‘good’ cholesterol), whilst lowering low-density lipoproteins (LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol).

Warnings

It is not advisable to exceed the above dose unless recommended by a healthcare practitioner. If taking any medication, especially blood-thinning medication, seek professional medical advice before taking this product. Pregnant or lactating women should consult their doctor before taking any food supplement. Echiomega should not be used as a substitute for a balanced diet. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and away from children.
