Omegold: How it Began
Omegold, worldwide attention was first drawn to the amazing
properties of the long-chain omega 3 fatty acids when Bang and Dyerburg, two
Danish researchers working in the 1970s, went to study the Inuit people of
Greenland to see if they had a high incidence of cardiovascular disease,
since their diets, rich in fatty fish, seal and whale blubber were so high
in fat. To their astonishment, the Inuit, living on their traditional diets,
had a much lower incidence of cardiovascular disease than the Danish people.
Analysis of the blood fats of the Inuits revealed that they
had high levels of two unusual fatty acids— eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and
docosahexaenoic (DHA), which are long chain omega-3 fatty acids.The
traditional Inuit diet contributed between 15 and 20 grams of these unusual
fats every day.
By contrast the Danes, like most Western peoples, had high
rates of death from cardiovascular disease, and a diet high in omega-6
polyunsaturated fats (from vegetable oils such as corn, sunflower,
cottonseed, grape seed, soy, sesame, and peanut oils, and cereal grains) and
saturated fats (from dairy and meat). In another part of the world there was
another group of people who lived long, healthy lives, despite a diet
relatively high in fat—the people from the
Mediterranean island of Crete. In fact, a landmark study
called the Seven Countries Study found that men from Crete had the lowest death rate from all diseases, including cardiovascular disease.
In yet another part of the world is another group of
people—who now enjoy the longest life-span in the world—the Japanese. Their
diet is low in fat, but most of it is from omega-3 marine sources. In fact
all these three diets were very different—the Inuit diet was very high in
fat, the Mediterranean diet of Crete was moderately high in fat and the
traditional Japanese diet was low in fat—yet they all had a common
element—they were rich in the long chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.
Since the 1970s, hundreds of thousands of studies by
scientists all over the world continue to document the health promoting and
life enhancing properties of these amazing long-chain omega-3 lipids. Eating
a diet rich in omega-3s can support the health of our heart, joints, eyes,
immune system, skin and nervous system, support healthy moods, maintain
sharp minds into our golden years, help our bodies maintain a normal and
healthy inflammatory process, and possibly even help increase our life span.
OmeGold™ Why take it
OmeGold is full of critically important Omega-3 fatty acids
that have been shown to positively affect cardiac health and mental
function. OmeGold is a safe and effective way to help ensure your entire
family is supplied with essential omega-3 fatty acids. OmeGold sets itself apart by including a specialized mix of
essential plant oils, which are potent fat-soluble antioxidants.
capsule contains a precise blend of DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids combined
with vitamin D and an exclusive proprietary blend of antioxidant-rich essential oils.
Plants (such as flaxseed, hempseed, canola oil, purslane)
contain a shorter chain omega-3 oil known as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA),
which is also important to good health, but does not have the same health
sustaining properties as its longer chain relatives EPA and DHA. Research
has shown that the human body has a very limited ability to convert ALA into
EPA and DHA, so these must be obtained from the diet for optimal health.
The unfolding story of the Omega-3s has revealed that these
specific fatty acids support good health throughout the entire human life
cycle—from unborn babies to healthy active senior citizens. Click here to order Omegold.
DHA—The Brain and Heart Omega -3
Life Plus has been marketing high quality marine source
omega-3 oils since the early 1980s. Recent research has begun to highlight
the specific roles of the longest chain omega-3 DHA. Our brains are 60%
lipid, and between a quarter and a third of that lipid is DHA, which plays a
major structural role in brain cell membranes.
Given the high availability
of other fats in the diet, and the low availability of DHA in modern diets,
it is quite possible that many people are struggling through life with other
fatty acids taking the place of DHA in their brains. At both ends of the age
spectrum, DHA is showing up as a major factor in maintaining and protecting
the one thing that defines us as human beings—our cognitive function.
DHA naturally occurs in breast milk, and levels of DHA in
breast milk correlate with the mother’s dietary intake of DHA. A study
published in the July/August 2004 issue of the journal Child Development,
showed that infants whose mothers had higher blood levels of DHA at the time
of delivery showed better development of attention over the first two years
of their lives.
Low blood levels of DHA have been correlated with general
memory decline in healthy elderly people, and an intervention trial
published in the October 2006 issue of Archives of Neurology showed that DHA supplementation clearly supports
the maintenance of healthy memory in an aging population.
School-aged children and teenagers need omega-3s for optimum
performance at school. We have all heard the saying, “fish is brain food.”
Far from being an old wives’ tale, it’s true, and DHA may be the primary
reason. Studies have shown that children with Attention Deficit
Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) have significantly lower levels of DHA in
their blood than healthy kids.
As with the brain, DHA is far more abundant than EPA in the
heart muscle itself, though supplementation with DHA and EPA raises the
levels of both. Higher levels of DHA in the blood also appear to support
already normal levels of C reactive protein (a marker of inflammation and an
indicator of cardiovascular health), as well as help maintain already
healthy blood lipids, and help maintain healthy cardiac rhythm.
Research is also beginning to reveal that humans can make
EPA from DHA much more efficiently than the other way around, which is why
Life Plus has found this high DHA marine omega-3 oil, and compounded it into
a product like no other.
The Importance of Vitamin D
OmeGold is also unique in that it provides a rich source of
vitamin D. The crucial importance of healthy levels of vitamin D, and the
widespread suboptimal levels of this factor in both children and adults has
been one of the most exciting and dramatic research stories of the recent
Scientists used to think that vitamin D was only important to bone
health, but now know it to be a major factor in the maintenance of cellular
differentiation, healthy moods, joint and muscle comfort,
and healthy immune function.
The observation 100 years ago that a teaspoon of cod liver
oil could prevent the vitamin D deficiency bone disease called Rickets, led
to the adoption of 400 IU of vitamin D as what was needed by humans to
prevent vitamin D deficiency. What wasn’t realized is that a large portion
of our vitamin D came from sun exposure, and that the human body could make
between 10,000 and 20,000 IU of vitamin D in response to short periods of
Since the recognition of the role of sun exposure in skin aging
and skin cancers, people have been avoiding the sun and using sun-blocks,
which also block the production of vitamin D. Since dietary sources of
vitamin D are relatively meager, there appears to be a need for
Each capsule of OmeGold supplies 800 IU of vitamin D (8
times as much as an equivalent amount of cod liver oil). Many vitamin D
experts now believe that children and adults alike (especially in winter,
and for those who avoid the sun in summer), may need 1600 IU of vitamin D or
even more to maintain healthy levels of this crucial substance in the body.
Vitamin D is not only important for proper absorption of calcium and bone
health, but also for maintaining healthy joints, a healthy cardiovascular
system and healthy moods, particularly in wintertime.

E-32: The Unique blend of super-potent
fat soluble Antioxidants to preserve Omega-3 and you too!
Another stand-out feature of Omegold is its proprietary mix
of essential plant oils, which are fat-soluble (oil-based) antioxidants—not only that, but they
are the most potent fat soluble antioxidants known. The weakest are 50 times
more potent than vitamin E, and the strongest is 5,000 times more potent
than vitamin E.
Why Oil-based Antioxidant
Our bodies are comprised of two “worlds”—one waterbased and
the other oil-based. Because oil and water do not mix, we need specific
antioxidants for each “world.” Products like Proanthenols provide superb
water-soluble antioxidants, but you need an oil to carry oil-soluble
antioxidants like those found in our unique essential plant-oil mix. OmeGold
is natural for this purpose.
An added benefit is that these antioxidants
also help to naturally preserve OmeGold’s freshness— far beyond that of
conventional antioxidant preservatives such as vitamin E. Each of these oils
are distilled from precious spices with a long history of traditional
culinary and healing uses—cloves, oregano, sage, thyme and cinnamon.
antioxidant powers are so great, that presence of a very small amount of
this proprietary blend provides an antioxidant activity to the entire
capsule of OmeGold that is more than 6 times the antioxidant activity of
pure vitamin E oil, as measured by Brunswick Laboratories, the originator of
the oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) scale.
It should be noted that
the amount of each essential oil in 2 capsules of OmeGold is well within the
amount contained in the whole spice that has traditionally been used in the
flavoring of foods, and is far below the range in which essential oils have
been used for therapeutic purposes.
