New cardiovascular supplement with omega-7, omega-3 fatty acids
Metagenics, Inc., a nutrigenomics and lifestyle medicine company focused on improving health, has launched the new Mega 10 — a unique omega fatty acid supplement combining specially designed levels of purified omega-7s and omega-3s to provide both targeted support for healthy blood lipids and general support for overall cardiovascular health.
Results from a recent study comprised of patients who took a supplement containing purified omega-7s and participated in a lifestyle change program, demonstrated support for healthy blood lipids, including triglycerides. Results from a second recent double-blinded, placebo-controlled study with healthy patients demonstrated similar support for maintaining healthy blood lipids, further supporting the potential role of omega-7s in promoting cardiovascular health, according to Metagenics.
The company said Mega 10 is a more complete omega formula for cardiovascular health, combining purified omega-7 fatty acids with concentrated levels of purity-tested omega-3s, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Each softgel provides 500 mg of combined EPA and DHA—6.6 times more than the leading krill oil product.
“Many unpurified omega-7 products, such as those from sea buckthorn, may contain high concentrations of palmitic acid, a fatty acid that has been associated with negative health effects. Mega 10 provides 210 mg of omega-7s per softgel derived from a unique purification process that helps filter undesirable palmitic acid and deliver concentrated levels of palmitoleic acid,” said John Troup, Metagenics chief science officer. “Like all of our OmegaGenics fatty acid formulas, Mega 10 is purity guaranteed and tested by a third-party lab to assure the highest quality to deliver its full potential.”
As with all Metagenics nutritional formulas, Mega 10 is only available through licensed health-care practitioners. Individuals interested in obtaining Mega 10 should contact their health-care professionals or visit www.metagenics.com to find an authorized Metagenics health-care practitioner near them.
