What is Omega-6 Fatty Acid?

Omega-6 fatty acid (Linoleic Acid) combined with omega-3 fatty acid produces many of the health benefits described above, but the trickiest part about playing the fatty acid game is that it is best to eat them in the right amounts.

You should be eating about twice as much omega-6 as omega-3, so that your omega-6 to omega-3 ratio is 2:1, but in today’s world of fast food, frozen entrees, and high calorie snacks, it is not uncommon for most people to actually be getting about 15 times more omega-6 than omega-3. Washington DC’s center for Genetics, Nutrition and Health suggest that eating omega-6 and omega-3 in the wrong proportions may actually negate the health benefits.

The best sources of omega-6 are seeds, nuts and grains and green leafy vegetables, like lettuce, broccoli, purslane and kale, and in certain raw vegetable oils. Care should be taken to use raw cold pressed vegetable oils because cooking destroys the benefits of the fatty acids.

What is Omega-9 Fatty Acid?

Omega-9, or monounsaturated oleic and stearic acid, is a non-essential fatty acid produced naturally by the body whenever there is enough of either Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids.

However, if you do not have enough omega 3 and omega 6, then you must get omega 9 from your diet.

This fatty acid plays a role in promoting heart health by supporting healthy, balanced cholesterol levels and improving immune function.

What is EPA and DHA?

Within the body omega-3 fatty acids are converted to DHA and EPA (docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid, respectively). DHA and EPA are highly unsaturated fats that play very important roles in the vision development and brain function of infants.

One study found significantly lower amounts of EPA in the cells of patients who had attempted suicide, suggesting that omega-3 fatty acids may actually play a role in suicide prevention. A lack of DHA has been associated with Alzheimer disease, attention disorders, phenylketonuria, cystic fibrosis and other diseases.*

ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS (OMEGA 3 AND OMEGA 6 COMPOUNDS)

Essential fatty acids are either Omega-3 oils or Omega-6 oils. Sources of Omega-3 are cod liver oil or fish oils, we only use Cold Water Salmon. Flax oil, flaxseed or leafy green vegetables. Some nuts also contain Omega-3's (walnuts). Omega-6 sources are corn oil, wheat germ oil, soy oil, borage oil, evening primrose oil, blackcurrent oil plus many of the other grocery store bought cooking oils. Almost all processed foods are very high in Omega-6's. Essential fatty acids play critical roles in body structure and function, in fact life cannot be sustained without them. Some are transformed to regulating compounds called prostaglandins in the body and these prostaglandins along with essential fatty acids are responsible for supporting the critical body functions listed below*:

· Nerve transmission*

· Pressure regulation in the eye, joints and blood vessels*

· Division of cells (growth and healing processes)*

· Response to pain, swelling and inflammation*

· Muscle reflexes*

· Transporting of oxygen from cells to tissue*

· Maintaining health of cell membranes*

· Supporting immune response*

· Providing energy to the heart muscle*

Essential fatty acids are often called by their chemical names. Omega-3 compounds are:

  • EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid)
  • DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
  • alpha-linolenic acid

Omega-6 compounds are:

  • linoleic acid
  • gamma-linoleic acid
  • arachidonic acid


There are two families of Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's), the omega 3 and the omega 6. Omega 3(see LifeSource Vitamins Omega 3) fatty acids are made from Alpha Linolenic Acid, and the omega 6 fatty acids are made from Linoleic Acid. Consuming both Linolenic and Linoleic Fatty acids allows the body to make all the essential fats it needs. Both of these - Linolenic Acid and Linoleic Acid - are used by the body to manufacture other EFA's. The body uses linolenic Acid to produce both Dososahexaenoic Acid (DHA), and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA), and uses Linoleic Acid to produce Arachidonic Acid (AA) and Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA). Omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids affect growth, vitality and mental state, and they are involved in converting food substances into usable energy and then transporting that energy throughout our bodies. They favorably affect atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease, inflammatory disease, and perhaps even behavioral disorders. Omega 9 fatty acid, or Oleic acid, may sometimes be mistaken as an EFA, but it is not because humans can produce a limited amount. Oleic Acid is the primary Mono-unsaturated fatty acid (MUFA) found in olive oil. Oleic acid is associated with reduces atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), reduced insulin resistance and, thus, improved glucose (blood sugar) maintenance, improved immune system function, and for possible protective effects from some cancers. Numerous studies point to a modest beneficial effect of olive oil consumption on breast cancer risk.*

In addition, nutritionists have come to recognize the importance of balancing omega-3 fatty acids with omega-6 fatty acids in the diet. Because most people on a typical Western diet consume far more omega-6-rich foods (including cereals, whole-grain bread, baked goods, fried foods, margarine, and others), the ratio is out of balance for almost everyone. This means for most Americans the emphasis now needs to be on increasing omega-3s to make the ratio more even.

LifeSource’s Super Omega 3-6-9 is a supplement that truly covers all aspects of supporting heart and circulation health - it contains flax and canola seed oils for Omega 3, GLA from primrose for Omega 6, and Oleic acid for Omega 9. LifeSource’s Super Omega 3-6-9 is the perfect supplement for individuals wanting to add essential oils to their diet.

Consuming adequate amounts of healthy kinds of fat - "essential fatty acids," like those found in LifeSource’s Super Omega 3-6-9 formula, is vital for your overall health and vitality. In fact, the World Health Organization recommends adult fat consumption equal at least 15% of energy intake, and in women of reproductive age, no less than 20%. Fatty acids promote healthy cholesterol levels, heart and arterial health.

LifeSource’s Super Omega 3-6-9 Essential Fatty Acids Formula provides a blend of the highest quality source Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 Fatty Acids in a single softgel capsule.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Promote Heart Health:

Studies have shown diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids support heart health by promoting proper triglyceride and cholesterol levels.*

The Important Role Played by Omega-6 Fatty Acids:

The key type of omega-6 fatty acid is called GLA (gamma linolenic acid). GLA is a precursor to hormone-like prostaglandins (PGE-1). Prostaglandins and specifically PGE-1 are powerful health "gladiators" cascading through the body.*

PGE-1 promotes healthy blood flow to and from the heart by supporting blood vessels.*

Immune function is also under the powerful influence of PGE-1, which controls the release of lymphokines known to activate immune system cells. Production and secretion of vital hormones in the pituitary, thyroid and adrenal glands, as well as immune boosting and lean tissue building growth hormone, are all stimulated by "multi-talented" PGE-1. PGE-1 also promotes the release and uptake of neurotransmitters, the chemical messengers of the nervous system, which support healthy sleep patterns and mood. Healthy levels of fatty acids which lead to adequate PGE-1 are important for those wishing to maintain energy levels.*

Omega 9 Fatty Acid

Common to olive oil, peanuts and avocado, Omega 9 fatty acid is also known as oleic acid. While not an essential fatty acid (the body can manufacture omega 9), supplementing with Omega 9 provides a good source of monounsaturated fat that promotes a healthy inflammation response.*

LifeSource Vitamins Super Omega 3-6-9 - 90 softgels, contains flax and canola seed oils for Omega 3, GLA from primrose for Omega 6, and Oleic acid for Omega 9, Heart Support, Cholesterol Support, Blood Pressure, Asthma, Diabetes, Arthritis, Osteoporosis and more..*
