There can’t be many people left in the world who haven’t heard something about omega 3 fats, or fatty acids.

But did you know omega 3′s are a family of fatty acids, with eight members in the family?

a bit about omega 3 fatty acids…

If you eat sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, or walnuts, you’ll be getting an omega 3 fat called alpha linolenic acid, or ALA for short. It’s an essential fat your body can’t make, so you need to get it in your food. Or in a supplement.

In our bodies ALA is converted eventually to an omega 3 fatty acid called docosahexaenoic acid (usually abbreviated to DHA). Most people have seen the letters DHA.

Each one of the steps between ALA and DHA produces a separate omega 3 fatty acid. There are eight of them in total. Every one has its own important job to do, as well as acting in unison with the other family members.

Unfortunately, the steps are easily disrupted by everyday events – a nasty cold, or stress, for example – so people often aren’t producing enough of the individual family members. Also, making matters worse, is the relative absence of omega-3-rich items from average food choices.

That’s where GNLD’s Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus comes in… it makes sure you have a supply of the whole omega 3 family you need for optimum health. If you want to read about this unique supplement, you can get the pdf here (620 KB)

what do omega 3′s do?

It’s a very long list! Here are some of the things omega 3′s do for us…

  • they form part of the structure of all our cell membranes, helping to keep them soft and supple
  • they’re involved in the production of sex hormones
  • they’re necessary for making hormone-like substances called prostaglandins that control important processes like blood clotting, blood fat levels, inflammation, skin integrity…
  • they help control the body’s water balance
  • they’re crucial for brain, nerve, and eye function

who says we need omega 3′s?

Most countries around the world have Associations dedicated to education and prevention of specific diseases. Diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity, and arthritis. And the Associations all have similar advice about staying healthy, including… eat at least 2 good portions of oily fish every week. That recommendation is made because all the Associations know the importance of a regular intake of omega 3 fatty acids.

Can you put your hand on your heart (or your knee joints!) and swear you eat oily fish at least twice a week, every week, every year?

You can?…Good for you!

Sadly, you’re in the minority. Most adults choose not to eat oily fish at all. And if they don’t eat oily fish, their children usually don’t eat oily fish, either.

how about pollution concerns?

Even if you do eat oily fish twice a week, you may justifiably have concerns about possible contamination. For example, fish living near the mouth of any large river flowing into the sea, are going to be exposed to an assortment of chemicals from all the factories, farms, and homes upstream.

And it’s not just around estuaries. A few years ago, a Norwegian study of fish in the Arctic regions showed the presence of chemicals such as the widely-used fire retardant, polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE), and other persistent organic pollutants (POP’s).

Because these industrial pollutants are fat soluble, they’re stored in the fish, and then in the animals that eat the fish… including us! They’re thought to have adverse effects on the glandular systems of both animals and humans.

The study is just one of many studies showing ocean pollution and contamination of fish. We can be sure the situation hasn’t improved since the study was completed in 2004! If you want to read the Norwegian study, you can get it here (pdf 194 KB).

mothers-to-be and their babies

Possible contamination of fish is why expectant mothers are often advised to limit their fish consumption to one serving a week… which means they could miss out on all the benefits of omega 3′s.

Moms-to-be have the highest dietary need of omega 3 fatty acids to ensure proper eye, nerve, and brain development of their babies.

There’s much more info about the benefits of omega 3 fatty acids for moms-to-be, here.

How can we get the omega 3′s we need, without the risk of pollutants?


GNLD Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus

When it was released in 2006, GNLD’s technology allowed them to test their Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus for an industry-leading 160 possible contaminants. The acceptable tolerance level was set at zero… another industry leading number!

Since then, GNLD has improved its unique technology to such an extent, that they’re now able to test for over 300 possible contaminants! And the tolerance level is still zero.

So you can be absolutely sure you’re getting all the pure goodness of the whole omega 3 family, and none of the stuff you don’t want. And there’s no hidden vitamin A, or vitamin D, either.

Benefits of GNLD Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus

A recent study with 31 healthy adult volunteers…16 women and 15 men, whose ages ranged from 35 to 65…was presented (by invitation) at a meeting of Experimental Biology in 2008. The study looked at the effects of supplementation with 3 capsules a day of GNLD’s Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus, over a period of just 8 weeks.

Studies elsewhere have been done with larger doses over a longer period, with people who already have health challenges.

GNLD wanted to see if their Salmon Oil Plus would have any beneficial protection for healthy people, in a short period of time, using a small amount.

The clinical trial was conducted with the direction and guidance of Dr Arianna Carughi, who is a Stanford Fellow and member of GNLD’s Scientific Advisory Board.

However, all blood samples at the start, after 4 weeks, and after 8 weeks were collected, analysed and reviewed by independent experts, to ensure no company bias.

Here’s a brief description of the health benefits they found

lowered triglycerides…

The level of triglycerides… a type of fat in the blood… gives a good idea of the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. In general, the lower the amount of triglycerides, the lower the risk of developing heart disease.

Even those people in the study, who started with triglycerides in the range normally considered safe, experienced an average reduction of 17%!

One person’s blood triglycerides, which were found to be unexpectedly high at the start (436 mg/dL), dropped to 210 mg/dL in just 8 weeks… a whopping 52% improvement!

improved omega 3-to-omega 6 ratios…

The amount of omega 3 fatty acids compared with the amount of omega 6 fatty acids inside cell walls, is a further indicator of the risk to cardiovascular health.

Supplementation with Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus produced a 43% improvement in the omega 3-to-omega 6 ratio. That’s a really big heart health benefit!

raised cardio-protective omega 3 index…

Three recent population studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, showed a direct relationship between the omega 3 index and cardiac arrest. The higher the index, the lower the risk of a your heart stopping.

GNLD Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus supplementation resulted in a rapid rise of 38% in this important omega 3 index. And of course, the significant rise means a corresponding fall in the risk of sudden death from heart failure.

proven anti-inflammatory benefits…

The effects of low-level (often called ‘silent’ ) inflammation over a long period of time have been directly implicated in the epidemic of chronic diseases seen around the world.

By the way, inflammation is also one of the recognised driving forces of the ageing process.

Whether you’ve got silent inflammation or not, depends on the balance inside your body between omega 3 fatty acids and another substance, called arachidonic acid.

Both fatty acids are normally present in the membranes of our cells, in balance with each other. However, if there’s much more arachidonic acid than omega 3 fatty acid, the balance is tipped towards inflammation, with a resultant increase in disease risk.

And you’ll also look older than you really are!

GNLD Omega 3 Salmon Oil was able to displace arachidonic acid from cell membranes by 9.6% in just 8 weeks. Tipping the scales like this in favour of reduced inflammation means a healthier life… with fewer wrinkles!

lowered inflammatory index…

Inflammatory index is becoming an increasingly important means of assessing the risk of developing chronic diseases. It’s determined from a series of medical tests, analyses, and calculations. The higher the number, the greater the risk of disease.

All the volunteers in GNLD’s study were considered healthy, with an average inflammatory index of 2,5.

However, after only 4 weeks of supplementation with GNLD’s Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus, the average value dropped by 60% to 1,0.

And then it dropped even further to 0,8 at the 8-week point.

This represents a phenomenal 68% reduction in the inflammatory index, meaning a huge reduction in the chance of developing chronic diseases.

scale of protection…

After years of investigating the relationship between fatty acid levels and cardiovascular disease, experts have established a scale of protection based on the omega 3 index. The scale has values between 0% and 10%.

Results from seven large studies of cardiovascular disease have shown that the zone of greatest benefit is in the range between 6.5% and 9.5%.

And it was also shown the omega 3 index doesn’t have to change much to have enormous protection benefits.

So a small increase in the omega 3 index, producing an increase from 6.5% to 8.5% in the scale of protection, equated to a whopping 70% reduction in the risk of fatal heart attack.

Data from GNLD’s Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus study showed that after only 8 weeks of supplementation, the scale of protection rose from 6.24% to 8.5%.

That’s a rise that means not only a huge increase in heart protection, but it’s also in the zone of greatest benefit, too.

summary of benefits…

This recent study of GNLD’s unique Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus supplement confirmed…

  • it’s readily absorbed from the intestines
  • it’s utilised by the body
  • it reduces significantly the risk factors of heart and cardiovascular disease
  • it lowers the amount of inflammation by restoring the fatty acid balance in the cells
  • it reduces the risk of developing inflammatory conditions, like heart disease and joint degeneration

There’s no doubt it… GNLD Omega 3 Salmon Oil Plus supplement, taken regularly every day, will improve almost every part of you!
