BiOmega

CONCENTRATED OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID SUPPLEMENT

USANA’s BiOmega fi sh-oil supplement contains a concentrated dose of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) to support healthy cellular function throughout the body.*

THE BENEFITS OF BIOMEGA

Your cells have a phospholipid bilayer that acts as a gatekeeper—keeping things out or letting them in. Key components of that bilayer, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play a significant role in maintaining our good health at the most basic level. A 1:1 ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 is ideal, as they work together to promote health. However, average diets contain significantly more omega-6s. Eating fatty fi sh and supplementing with BiOmega are effective ways to increase omega-3 levels to help maintain a proper balance and support healthy cellular function.*

Omega-3 fatty acids are effective in supporting joint health, as well as healthy neural development and function. Omega-3s also encourage healthy skin. In addition, combining fi sh oil intake with regular exercise is more supportive than exercise alone for helping reduce body fat and supporting metabolic health.*

Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.*

One serving of BiOmega provides 1050 mg of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. (See nutrition information for total
fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol content.) It is important that women who are pregnant get sufficient amounts of omega-3 fatty acids to support their child’s brain and eye development.*

THE SCIENCE OF BIOMEGA

The omega-3 long-chain fatty acids are the biosynthetic precursors of eicosanoids, which are hormone-like substances that help retain normal health processes in our bodies.*

Incorporation of omega-3 fatty acids into the diet helps to support articular cartilage and joint comfort.*

Fatty acids influence brain development and structural integrity, impacting biochemical efficiency in the brain. Neural phospholipid membranes selectively concentrate DHA in photoreceptors and some cell-signaling sites, while the retina selectively incorporates EPA to support eye fluidity.*

Sufficient levels of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can help maintain skin’s barrier function to keep it looking healthy, and EPA may also help protect skin against the damaging effects of the sun.*

EPA and DHA help maintain healthy high-density lipoprotein and triglyceride levels in plasma, which are important for supporting healthy arterial function and blood flow.*

Pre- or post-partum women should consume DHA and EPA to support the growth and development of their child. DHA plays a role in the healthy development of the visual system, and it is one of the dominant fats in the nerve cells of fetal and infant brains.*

THE USANA DIFFERENCE

Produced from sustainably raised cold-water, deep-sea fi sh oil, USANA’s BiOmega includes a careful balance of DHA and EPA at a more potent dose than many competitors. BiOmega is purified to be virtually free of contaminants. Also free of trans-fatty acids, each capsule contains 2 mg of mixed natural tocopherols to maintain product quality during storage. BiOmega is also fortified with vitamin D to supply an additional 200 IU per day.* And with added lemon flavoring, there is no fishy aftertaste.
