Fatty Acids, Omega 3-6-9, Should Be In A Balanced Form

Hi,

I have been a customer of CAOH for a while now and I am very happy with the products.  I’ve read so much about the importance of DHA and EPA in omega supplements.  A lot of products on the market, when compared to your product, have a much higher amount of omega altogether and much higher amounts of DHA and EPA.  Does that mean they are better?  Why does your product seem to have a small amount of DHA and EPA?  Thanks for your help in understanding this.

Hope your day is great!

Linda,

Our Ultra Omega 3-6-9 formula is a balanced “omega fatty acid” formula, supplying omega 3’s (ALA, EPA and DHA), omega 6 (GLA) and omega 9 fatty acids. A high potency EPA/DHA is appropriate only under a health care practitioner’s supervision. Not because it’s dangerous but because long-term use will create deficiencies of other fatty acids. This can lead to hormonal changes, especially in females, and other health issues. My recommendation is to always take a balanced formula. If you want more EPA/DHA, take more capsules of our balanced formula. I personally take 3 per day, which makes the bottle last 1 month. As an added note, we have a complement of tocopherols (vitamin E) in the formula to help the fatty acids from oxidizing. Rancid fatty acids are a potential health hazard.

Let me know if this answers your question.

Sincerely,

Dr. Marcus Ettinger, B.Sc., D.C.

 Hope your day is great!
