Omega-3 Oils: Fish Oil or Flax Seed Oil

The Importance of Pharmaceutical Grade Marine Lipids

Introduction
In the last year, several landmark studies have once again highlighted the importance of the longer chain omega-3 fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA) found in fish. The reason why these fatty substances are so important revolve around their role in cellular membranes. A diet that is deficient in omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA and DHA, results in altered cell membranes. Without a healthy membrane, cells lose their ability to hold water, vital nutrients, and electrolytes. They also lose their ability to communicate with other cells and be controlled by regulating hormones. They simply do not function properly. Cell membrane dysfunction is a critical factor in the development of virtually every chronic disease, especially cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. Not surprisingly, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids have shown tremendous protective effects against all of these diseases.
 
Some conditions benefited more by long-chain omega-3 fatty acids than flaxseed oil:
?Aging (are you over 50?)
?Allergies
?Arthritis
?Asthma
?Attention deficit disorder
?Autoimmune diseases (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, MS, etc.)
?Cancer (prevention and treatment adjunct)
?Depression
?Diabetes
?Eczema
?Elevated cholesterol or triglyceride levels
?Heart disease (prevention and treatment)
?Inflammatory conditions (e.g., ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease)
?Menopause
?Pregnancy
?Psoriasis
?Fish Oils vs. Flaxseed Oil
