Description: Balance Plus Revised 90c is available by Douglas Laboratories.
amni® original formula
provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a combination of nutritionally
important, synergistically acting fatty acids: the omega-3 fatty acids
from cold water marine fish (eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA; and
docosahexaenoic acid, DHA), the omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) from
borage seed oil, and the omega-9 oleic acid from olive oil.
Balance™ Plus may be a useful dietary
supplement for those who wish to increase their intake of nutritionally
important fatty acids.
Typical diets in developed countries
deliver large amounts of saturated fatty acids and the polyunsaturated
omega-6 linoleic and arachidonic acids, but often not enough of the
omega-3 and omega-9 fatty acids. Similar fatty acid imbalances can be
the result of consuming very low fat diets.
Diets high in
linoleic acid (omega-6) and low in omega-3 fatty acids have been shown
to promote the formation of pro-inflammatory immune mediators, the
2-series prostaglandins, thromboxanes and leukotrienes, whereas diets
high in omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil, flax seed oil) enhance the
formation of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins of the 1 and 3 series.
omega-6 gamma-linolenic acid (GLA from borage seed oil) is thought to
downregulate the pro-inflammatory actions of excessive dietary linoleic
acid. GLA and the omega-3 fatty acids appear to act synergistically in
balancing normal immune function. Thus, a balanced dietary intake of
all of these fatty acids appears to be necessary to maintain a normal
immune response during inflammation.
The omega-3 fatty acids
also have important functions for visual acuity and possibly in
maintaining normal blood lipoprotein levels. Balance Plus serves as a
pure, natural source of nutritionally beneficial fatty acids that are
often hard to obtain from the diet. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids (EPA
and DHA) from fish oil, the synergistic GLA from borage seed oil, and
omega-9 oleic acid from olive oil, Balance Plus helps restore balanced
fatty acid nutrition. The formula also provides those nutrients that
are needed to properly metabolize these fatty acids: niacin, zinc, and
vitamins B6, C and E.
