Info: 60 Softgels
In modern society, individuals are becoming more conscious of what they are putting into their body, especially when it comes to fat. While excess saturated and trans fats can lead to detrimental health problems, heart-healthy sources of fat, such as omega-3 fatty acids, are recommended as part of a balanced diet. While omega-3s (EPA and DHA) are important for cardiovascular support and cognitive function, a new fatty acid is now being added to the mix: omega-7 fatty acids. Sea-licious Purified Omega-7 with Palmitoleic Acid has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body, insulin resistance, as well as improve pancreatic health.
Palmitoleic acid is an omega-7 fatty acid that is naturally found in certain foods such as macadamia nuts and sea buckthorn; however, it is accompanied by the pro-inflammatory palmitic acid. Therefore, Provinal is a purified form of palmitoleic acid that does not contain the heart-damaging palmitic acid. These Purified Omega-7 with Palmitoleic Acid softgels also contain EPA, DHA, antioxidants, and have a natural lemon flavor.
Omega-7: Palmitoleic Acid
By Nathan Zassman
The latest (and possibly greatest) health promoting omega essential fatty acid is Omega 7. Known as palmitoleic acid, omega 7 has been shown to lower levels of C Reactive Protein (CRP), a known risk factor for heart disease. Elevated levels of CRP are an indication that you have inflammation in the body, considered the leading cause of just about every health problem. Often called inflam-aging, lowering inflammation may lower your risk for heart disease, stroke and memory loss, while minimizing wrinkles and improving circulation.
Better circulation can help reduce arthritic pain (a sign of inflammation), improve sexual performance in men with erectile dysfunction (ED) and may help reduce tinnitus (ringing in the ears.)
Early studies show omega-7 might decrease fatty liver and insulin resistance, lower blood sugar and decrease triglyceride and LDL (the bad) cholesterol levels, while increasing HDL (the good cholesterol).
What is exciting about Sea-Licious Omega 7 is that the normal source for Omega 7, Sea Buckthorn, is high in palmitic acid, which has been shown to cause inflammation. Provinol, as it is derived from marine sources, has no inflammatory palmitic acid, improving the health benefit substantially.
Palmitoleic acid (C16:1n7), has been clinically shown to reduce C-reactive protein (CRP). Other Omega 7 formulations on the market may contain upwards of 30% of palmitic acid, a saturated fatty acid that has been shown to have negative health effects
