Recent headlines are reporting on many of the important health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids. Study Reveals DHA Improves Brain Health in the Elderly, Omega-3s May Reduce Risks of Heart Failure, Reduce Risk of Heart Disease Take Your Omega-3s! and Improving Joint Mobility with Omega-3 Oils are but a few examples of the exciting and compelling reports and scientific studies being published.

Barleans understands the importance of integrating Omega-3 fatty acids into your daily diet, and offers a complete line of Total Omega, Omega Swirl, and Total Omega Swirl Vegan products for those who aspire to nutritionally support heart health. Every once-a-day serving is loaded with nearly 7,000 milligrams of Omega-3 (LNA, DHA, EPA), as well as 2,500 milligrams of Omega-6 and 2,500 milligrams of Omega-9. Derived from natural, unrefined flaxseed oil, fish oil, and borage oil, Barleans Total Omega is truly a superior product for complete Omega nutrition. With Barleans, improving heart health has never been easier!

Barleans and Brain Health

Barleans Total Omega Vegan Swirl uses the same algal DHA that was included in a study reported by Alzheimers & Dementia, the official journal of the Alzheimers Association. The Memory Improvement with Docasahexenoic Acid Study (MIDAS) studied the effects of algal DHA on elderly subjects with age-related cognitive decline. These individuals all were characterized by having mild memory degeneration. Their findings reveal that those supplemented with DHA showed a benefit roughly equivalent to having the learning and memory skills of someone three years younger while having almost double the reduction in errors compared to the placebo subjects.

This study puts into perspective how a daily dose of DHA can significantly improve cognitive function in the elderly. Supplementing with DHA early on can bolster brain health and reduce or reverse the effects of memory degeneration.

Barleans Total Omega Vegan Swirl includes flaxseed oil and Borage oil, providing a master blend of Omega-3, 6, & 9 to foster overall health, in addition to having 100% vegetarian plant-based DHA. With its natural pomegranate and blueberry flavor, nourishing brain health, memory and cognitive function has never been easier or more delicious. It is no wonder that the Omega Swirls were voted Best Product of the Year by esteemed health magazines and Gold Medal from the American Masters of Taste.

Barleans and Heart Health - Reducing risk for heart disease by 50% with Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Two indepentant studies, one report in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition and another in Journal of Nutrition, have linked consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids to reduced risk of coronary heart disease and improved cardiovascular health.

The reported study in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition linked consumption of Omega-3 content derived from fish to a reduction in the risk of heart failure in women by up to 25 percent. The researchers concluded that Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids contributed to improvements in blood lipid levels, blood pressure, heart rate, and overall vascular health.

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which can be found in abundance in marine sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, have long been linked to other health benefits, including improved mood, behavior, proper development of babies, and a reduced risk in certain cancers and heart diseases.

Another larger study assessing more than 21,000 participants for a period of over 11 years found that a daily intake of EPA and DHA of about 240 mgs is associated with a 50% risk reduction for coronary heart disease (CHD). The study is published in the Journal of Nutrition and was done in the Netherlands. Subjects were between the ages of 20 and 65. (Source: Journal of Nutrition Published online ahead of print, doi:10.3945/jn.109.119271 Marine (n-3) Fatty Acids, Fish Consumption, and the 10-Year Risk of Fatal and Nonfatal Coronary Heart Disease in a Large Population of Dutch Adults with a Low Fish Intake Authors: J. de Goede, J.M. Geleijnse, J.M. A. Boer, D. Kromhout, W. M.M. Verschuren)

Barleans Innovation - Barleans Omega Swirl is 90% More Bio-available than Standard Fish Oil!

Omega-3s have been linked to many areas of support for good health. Barleans knows that ingesting 240 mgs of combined EPA/DHA is easy! How about adding increased bioavailability and delicious taste to that EPA/DHA? Barleans Lemon Zest Omega Swirl and new Total Omega Swirl are perfect choices!

The clinical study conducted by The Centre for Nutritional Studies shows that Barleans Omega Swirl, a lemon flavored, emulsified fish oil product was found to be 90% more bio-available than standard fish oil. In the study, the total percentage of oil that reached the blood stream was 10-times greater with Omega Swirl than the same dose of fish oil. Theoretically, it could take up to 20 standard fish oil gelcaps to equal the amount of Omega-3 delivered to the bloodstream by just one, two tsp. dose of Omega Swirl.

The proprietary Swirl technology developed by Barleans creates a product resembling the taste and texture of a fruit smoothie while significantly reducing the size of fish and flax oil molecules allowing the oil to more efficiently pass through the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream.

Principal researcher Dr. Tom Gilhooly stated that in light of the extraordinary result of this preliminary study an expanded, peer-reviewed study is merited. Blood analysis was performed by Stirling University in Scotland, renowned for cutting edge Omega-3 science. The latest Ideal Omega blood testing technology was used in the study.

Todays Diet Needs Omega-3 Supplements

Over a hundred years ago wild game, fish, eggs and whole grains were sources of Omega-3 fatty acids. Today the milling of grain removes the fatty acids. Other essential nutrients are added back into flour except the fatty acids because they reduce the shelf life of the flour. Laying hens, even the ones advertised as "free range," have no access to Omega-3 fatty acids in their diet. Eggs now provide little Omega-3. Essential Omega-3 fats are missing from the food chain and Americans are paying a steep price for this in poor health.

Even with supplementation it takes months to replenish the body with Omega-3 fatty acids. Both fish and flax provide the essential Omega-3 fatty acids. But only flax, with a 4-to-1 ratio of Omega-3 over Omega-6 fatty acids, can quickly rebalance the body with essential Omega-3s. One tablespoon of flax seed oil provides 5000 mg. of Omega-3 oil, which is equal to 5 to 10 fish oil capsules. No wonder Dave Barlean gave up his fishing boat to press flax seed. Until Omega-3 oils are replaced in the food chain, Barlean's has some tall orders to fill.

Barleans Omega Swirls have won multiple Best of Supplement and Tasters Choice awards and have captured national media attention.
