Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are nutrients required for many key functions in the human body including cell growth, brain development, muscle activity, immune function, joint health, and many others.* While some fatty acids can be produced inside the body, “essential” fatty acids cannot be produced by our bodies and we rely on the food we eat to supply us with these important nutrients. The most common of the essential fatty acids are omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Modern science suggests for optimal health, humans should consume a one-to-one ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 essential fatty acids in the foods they eat. Unfortunately, due to the abundance of omega-6 fatty acids in vegetable oils and our increasing consumption of fried and fatty foods, the Western diet includes omega-6 fatty acids in a ratio as high as 15 to one.
While our diets must include some omega-6 fatty acids as essential nutrients for life, the disproportionate consumption of omega-6 fatty acids, along with unhealthy hydrogenated or trans fats, has been linked to poor health.
Studies also link low intake of omega-3 fatty acids to reduced mood and cognitive function. Conversely, there is an enormous body of scientific information supporting the health benefits of increasing the dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have shown that increasing omega-3 fatty acid consumption has a positive effect on cardiovascular health and brain function, and helps promote a healthy immune response.*
Increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids has also been shown to have a positive impact on joint health and mobility, and skin health.* Restoring the balance of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids is an important step in keeping your body healthy. This can be done by decreasing your intake of unhealthy foods high in omega-6 fatty acids vEO Mega® Essential Oil Omega Complex 2 and increasing your intake of foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Fish is an excellent source of dietary omega-3 fatty acids, but omega-3s can also be found in olive oil and the oils of some nuts and seeds. One daily serving of vEO Mega® provides more than 550 mg of ALA, and 100 mg of DHA omega-3 essential fatty acids.
Another convenient source of healthy essential fatty acids can be found in flaxseed oil and Inca Inchi oil. Flaxseed oil provides an omega-3 fatty acid known as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). While DHA and EPA are readily available to the body when consumed from fish, ALA can also be synthesized to DHA and EPA in the human body. dōTERRA vEO Mega contains a proprietary plantbased essential fatty acid blend of flaxseed oil, Inca Inchi oil, borage seed oil, cranberry seed oil, pumpkin seed oil, grape seed oil, and pomegranate seed oil to help maintain the appropriate balance of essential fatty acids.*
vEO Mega Essential Oil Omega Complex
vEO Mega is a revolutionary approach to supplementing our diets with essential fatty acids and other fat soluble nutrients that help support circulatory health, brain health, and optimal immune function among many other systemic benefits.* This unique formula of lipid-soluble nutrients is packaged in small vegetable liquicaps that are easier to swallow than large gelatin fish pills. vEO Mega is formulated to be used daily with dōTERRA Alpha CRS® + as a comprehensive dietary supplement foundation for a lifetime of vitality and wellness.*
vEO Mega also includes 800 IU of natural vitamin D. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin present in a limited number of foods such as fish, beef liver, cheese, egg yolks, and fortified dairy products. The vitamin D in the vEO Mega is sourced from plants. It can also be synthesized in the body when triggered by exposure to sunlight. Vitamin D plays an essential role in bone health and growth.* As with the essential fatty acids in vEO Mega, vitamin D also plays an important role in promoting healthy immune function.*
Astaxanthin and Vitamin E
Omega-3 fatty acids are important for circulatory and brain health.* The brain is made up of essential lipids and, as with the free lipids traveling in the circulatory system, these lipids are prone to degradation through free-radical oxidation. vEO Mega includes the powerful antioxidant carotenoid astaxanthin that helps protect against lipid oxidation in the brain and throughout the circulatory system.* Astaxanthin has been clinically-substantiated to provide powerful antioxidant and circulatory benefits, support eye health, improve muscle strength and endurance, aid the liver and digestive system, support skin health, and modulate healthy immune function.* The astaxanthin used in vEO Mega is a standardized extract of microalgae cultivated in a pure water system and activated by light.† In response to light exposure, the microalgae produces astaxanthin as a defense mechanism against oxidation. The microalgae turns from light green to a deep crimson red. The astaxanthin is then extracted, micro-filtered, and standardized for potency. The astaxanthin is coupled with natural vitamin E and several other carotenoids to provide additional circulatory and systemic benefits as powerful antioxidant additions to the antioxidant essential oils in vEO Mega.*
