How important is the balance between Omega 3 and Omega 6?
A deficiency of Omega 3 is positively correlated with over 50 diseases and illnesses including the dreaded disease of Cancer, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Stroke, and Arthritis. The so-called western degenerative diseases have risen in a near perfect linear fashion with the eliminated of Omega 3, and the over-provision of Omega 6 in the food chain. In many regards saturated fats may have been ruled guilty by association as the genesis of cardiovascular disease appears to be more closely related to a rise in vegetable oil ingestation than it does to saturated fat. Perhaps it should come as no surprise that supplemental ingestion of Omega 3 greatly improves all of the 50 known Omega 3 deficiency conditions.
In a landmark study, Japanese researchers have discovered the leading cause of westernized degenerative disease in Japan, if not in the world. Their work has gone far to confirm the landslide of emerging scientific research which is beginning to reveal that the genesis of degenerative diseases is owed to a drastic reduction in the ingestion of Omega 3 in relation to increased ingestion of Omega 6. Their findings came after an exhaustive review of over 600 peer-reviewed studies and after accounting for all known and suspected causes for degenerative illnesses. Perhaps having the most impact are the words of the Japanese researchers themselves excreted from the study summary:
“We summarize the evidence that increased dietary linoleic acid (Omega 6) and relative Omega 3 deficiencies are risk factors for western type cancers, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and also for allergic hyper-reactivity. We also raise the possibility that a relative Omega 3 deficiency may be affecting the behavioural patterns of a proportion of the young generation in the industrialized countries.” It is proposed that dietary intervention with Omega 3 supplementation and the reduction of Omega 6 in the diet, could successfully reverse the rising trend toward westernized degenerative diseases in Japan, and the world. The dietary transition to a westernized diet in Japan occurring in the last fifty years and the subsequent rise in degenerative disease is merely a microcosm of the transition, which occurred in the United States beginning with the Industrial Revolution.
A modern dietary shift unprecedented in human history favoring the ingestion of Omega 6 at the expense of Omega 3 is being owed as a primary, if not the leading cause of westernized degenerative diseases. In light of this information, it is highly advisable to make conscious dietary choices to reduce the amount of extraneous Omega 6 in the diet and to ingest Omega 3s in an effort to return the body to balance.

Why Auum Omega 3 Sublingual D?
Auum Omega 3 Sublingual D is a pleasant light in texture and lemon fl avoured formula. Th is bio available Omega 3 is a mammalian source (harp seal) of EPA, DHA and DPA. DPA is only found in mammalian sources. Th e structure of the oil allows these forms to be directly utilized by our bodies, as they do not require conversions. Auum Omega 3 provides a readily available, easily absorbable form of well-balanced Omega’s for our health. EPA, DHA and DPA support the development of the brain, eyes and nerves, and have a direct benefi cial eff ect on cardio-vascular health.
Omegas 3 and 6 are Essential Fatty Acids, an essential nutrient because our bodies cannot produce it. Omega6 (can create infl ammation in the body) and Omega 3 (reduces infl ammation in the body) remain “good fats” as long as they are balanced in our bodies. Auum’s Omega 3 supplements supply Omega 6 and 3s in a ratio of 1:1. All diseases have an infl ammatory component. Omega 3s plays a key role in reducing infl ammation. Per teaspoon, Auum Sublingual D provides 1,000 IU of Vitamin D3 from a natural source.
