No nutritional program is complete without a high-quality source of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, which are lacking in the typical Western diet. USANA’s BiOmega is produced from cold-water, deep-sea fish oil and contains a balanced, highly concentrated daily dose of two important omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (ePA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in two convenient capsules per day.
USANA Biomega 3 Has Healthy Essential Fats
Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are the bio-synthetic precursors of a family of compounds called eicosanoids (prostaglandins, thromboxins, and leucotriens).
These compounds are hormone-like substances that help retain normal health processes in our bodies. It is important to maintain an appropriate balance of omega-3 and omega-6 in the diet as these two substances work together to promote health.
Yet despite the clear health benefits associated with omega-3 fatty acids, dietary surveys indicate that most of us do not obtain enough omega-3 fatty acids from our diets.
In 2002, the American Heart Association issued new guidance on fish and fish oil consumption, because results of large scale epidemiological studies and randomized controlled studies showed that omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil support cardiovascular health. In addition to the heart health benefits, studies have shown omega-3 fatty acids, in the form of fish oil supplements, to be effective in promoting optimal neural development and function.

|Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol)||100 IU|
It is important that women of child bearing age who are pregnant or may become pregnant get proper nutrition to ensure the best possible development for their baby, including getting sufficient amounts of omega-3 fatty acids.
DHA is one of the dominant fats in the nerve cells of fetal and infant brains, and research is beginning to suggest that omega-3 fatty acids are critical to the development of the brain before birth and during early childhood.
Most commercially prepared infant formulas are now fortified with DHA to support health and nervous system development.
Most purification processes for fish oil remove any vitamin D from the product. Yet, experts now widely believe that a majority of people are not getting enough vitamin D. Vitamin D has been shown to have many health benefits.
Another reason to take USANA BiOmega is because we supply an additional 200 IU per day.
Why USANA BiOmega?
In spite of clear benefits, health authorities have warned us to limit our intake of certain species of fish. This is due to concern about potential contaminants.
USANA Products are manufactured in a state-of-the art facility and USANA’s BiOmega is free of contaminants.
The contaminants found in most fish is eliminated through a double-molecular distillation process in USANA’s facility and that ensures the highest possible purity for their products.
Through this process, heavy metals, PCBs, pesticides, and organic residues are effectively eliminated.
Also free of trans-fatty acids, each capsule contains 2 mg of mixed natural tocopherols. This minimises oxidation of the omega-3 fatty acids and maintain product quality during storage.
In short, BiOmega is one of the purest, highest quality products available on the market today.
Supplementation with USANA BiOmega is an excellent way to ensure that your diet includes a concentrated balance of safe EPA and DHA in two convenient capsules per day. And with added lemon flavoring, there is no fishy aftertaste.
