Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to human health. In particular, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) must be available in the diet because the body cannot produce it. The most readily available sources for ALA and other omega-3 fatty acids are ocean fish, such as herring, salmon, halibut and tuna, and oils derived from these sources. But these sources are not an option for vegetarians, who turn to a variety of seeds and nuts, which also contain ALA.
How O-Seed Works
Essential fatty acids come in two groups—omega-6 and omega-3. Each is important. However, a normal diet contains far more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3s, which may lead to an imbalance between the two. The good ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 is approximately 1:3, or higher levels of omega-3 by about two-thirds. Most omega-6s in the diet come from oils used in cooking, which have omega-6 to omega-3 ratios ranging from canola oil at 2:1 to safflower oil at 365:0.
O-Seed contains a combination of chia seed and kiwi fruit seed. These two seeds have two of the highest levels of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA of any plant sources. Chia seed contains 64% ALA, while kiwi fruit seed contains 62% ALA. Together they provide a good source of this omega-3 fatty acid, and help to balance out the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio in your diet.
