Live Better with New Roots Herbal’s Omegas

Omega fatty acids stand out as key players in the world of nutrition and supplementation, each offering unique health benefits. Omegas-3, 6, 7, and 9, are unique fatty acids with distinct benefits to our well-being. Let’s delve into their benefits and explore potential consequences of not getting enough of these fatty acids.


Understanding Omegas

Signs of deficiency: Cardiovascular issues, cognitive impairment, low mood, age-related macular degeneration, and increased inflammation.


Essential fatty acid to support healthy skin, hormonal balance, and cellular metabolism.

Signs of deficiency:  Uncommon due to abundance in typical diets; however excess levels can lead to imbalances with omega-3, contributing to systemic inflammation.


Supports healthy skin, hair, eyesight, cardiovascular health, and mucous membranes.

Balance is Key

Understanding omega deficiencies can be crucial, with symptoms manifesting in many ways depending upon different body systems.

The Omega-3 Index: An indicator of Canada’s health status, the Omega-3 Index measures EPA and DHA in red blood cell membranes. It’s last report revealed alarming statistics. Only 3% of the population consumes enough omega-3 to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Another 54% are at intermediate risk, and 43% are deficient. Adequate intake is crucial for better health.

The ALA Connection: Alpha-Linolenic acid (ALA), found in flaxseed, chia seeds, and walnuts, is the major plant source of omega-3 essential fatty acid. ALA is beneficial, but its conversion to more potent omegas like EPA and DHA is limited, necessitating the need for alternative sources for sufficient intake.

Balancing the Omega-6-to-Omega-3 Ratio: Maintaining a balanced omega-6-to-omega-3 ratio is critical. While an ideal ratio is two to one in favour of omega 3, contemporary western diets have an excess of omega 6 fatty acids. Achieving a more balanced ratio is associated with better health.
