Total Omega 3-6-9 is another mulit-EFA (Essential Fatty Acids) diet supplement riding
on the misinformed trend to take in Omega 6 and 9 with Omega 3. Manufactured and
marketed by US-based Barlean’s Organic Oils, LLC.
Total Omega 3-6-9 gets a better rating though as it delivers a more potent 4:1 ratio
of Omega 3 to Omega 6 using only ultra-purified fish oil but only from its liquid
form, the softgel has a 2:1 ratio which does less to correct the already imbalanced
Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio we get from our daily diets.
How Total Omega 3-6-9 Softgels Works?
Omega 3, 6 and 9 taken separately has its heath benefits of which Omega 3 is better
known to reduce the risks of heart ailments, arteriosclerosis, preventing high blood
pressure, arthritis, diabetes and certain types of hormone-dependent cancers like
prostate, colon and breast cancers.
But the key in maintaining good health is not so much getting more of the essential
fatty acids as it is about getting a balanced intake of Omega 3 and Omega 6. Omega
9 is the most abundant fatty acid in nature and is not an essential fatty acid because
it is produced in the body from Omega 6 which is also abundant in the foods that
modem man eats to the near exclusion of Omega 3.
√ The optimal ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 is from 1:1 to 1:4 to get the best health
Χ Unfortunately, our diets typically have a 1:10 up to 1:30 ratios which can cause
many of the health problems we now face.
In short, there’s no need for Omega 6 and Omega 9 supplementation. Unless you’re
severely malnourished, you only need Omega 3 supplementation.
But having said that, Total Omega 3-6-9 in liquid form aims to correct this imbalance
with a 3:1 ratio for its Omega 3 to Omega 6. Each 1tsp serving contains 6680mg of
Omega 3, 2355mg of Omega 6 and 2535mg of Omega 9. On the other hand, its softgel
form isn’t as good with barely a 2:1 ratio but is better than most other 3-6-9 supplements
in rebalancing the omega ratios in our meals.
