Founder's Notes on Omegas

Primal Omegas

The Paleo/Primal diet, which has you cut back on sugars and refined carbohydrates and asks that you consume more fats, can potentially result in you consuming more omega-6 fatty acids, which are generally pro-inflammatory. They turn on the genes that cause inflammation. Now, you need omega-6 in your diet, but the metric that we have been using is that people already have far too much of an imbalance of 10 or 20 to 1 omega-6 to omega-3. And it should be more like 3 to 1 or 2 to 1. Omega-3s are generally anti-inflammatory in nature. Omega-3 is an important polyunsaturated fatty acid, but how do you get it in your diet? Oily fish is a great source, but most likely you will have to supplement. There is a lot of research on the benefits of omega-3s for heart health, brain health, and recovery from exercise because it is an anti-inflammatory agent.

Clean sourcing of omegas. We test everything we make for heavy metals. That's the law according to Prop 65 in California. If you have any heavy metals in your product, you can literally be sued out of business by the state. Sometimes we can't ship your items right away because they are in the lab waiting for testing for heavy metals and microbials. Rest assured, our omegas are sourced from the deep waters off the coast of Chile, from anchovies, sardines, manhattan, and all those types of deep oily fish.

The Omega-3/ Omega-6 Ratio

Our Primal Omegas are highly purified and very low in purines (if any), making them a better O3 choice than fresh fish!!

Omegas are in the triglyceride form, not ethyl ester.
