Q: Can I get the same benefits from flax oil?
A: Flax is a source of the ALA form of omega-3 fatty acid, but it is not efficiently used by the human body. Fish oil contains the DHA/EPA forms of omega-3’s, and it is these types of omega-3’s that are popular for their benefits.
Q: What’s the difference between omega-6 and omega-3?
A: Both omega-3 and omega-6 are essential fatty acids that your body needs to sustain health, however, scientists believe omega-6 is pro-inflammatory when consumed in excess, and omega-3 is anti-inflammatory. The modern diet of processed foods and industrial seed oils like canola oil, deliver large amounts of omega-6 and not enough omega-3.
Primal Omegas provide a high-quality source of the two essential types of omega-3 fatty acids - EPA and DHA - derived from deep-water fish. Unless you're eating fatty fish often, you may not be getting enough omega-3s and might benefit from fish oil supplementation.
Q: What’s the difference between DHA and EPA?
A: There are two key omega-3 fatty acids: DHA and EPA. They are both readily found in fish, and they each provide common and unique benefits. For this reason omega-3 fatty acid supplements typically contain both DHA and EPA. Because our bodies naturally convert some EPA from DHA, our Primal Omegas contain more DHA
