We've all heard of fatty acid Omega-3 but very few of us know about its heart healthy, fat shifting cousin Omega-7. Help maintain metabolic function, reduce liver fats and even improve levels of HDL "good" cholesterol with Provinal's patented Palmitoleic acid from fish oils; nature's new enforcer.
You might imagine that when it comes to understanding the way the body functions, modern science has pretty much got it wrapped up. Which is why, when we hear that there's a new Omega fatty acid on the scene, that just so happens to be just as vital as Omega-3 or Omega-6, it comes as a bit of a shock.
The real truth of it is that we're always still learning. Constantly uncovering new aspects of previously documented aspects of human physiology. For years, nutritionists and health experts have told us that we need to be getting as many Omega-3 fats as we can; vital for heart and brain health but now their little-known cousins, the Omega-7s, are here to steal the limelight.
Also known as Palmitoleic acid, Omega-7 is being touted for its potential to reduce risk factors for type 2 diabetes, heart disease and several obesity related diseases. Swanson EFAs Provinal Purified Omega-7 is an unsaturated fat. That means that it is considered to be good for your heart on account of its ability to raise certain levels of HDL "good" cholesterol. Unlike those saturated fats found in red meat and butter.
Swanson EFAs Provinal Purified Omega-7 isolates Palmitoleic acid from a natural fish source which has also been purified to remove any unwanted elements. Yielding a massive 50% concentration of Omega-7 palmitoleic acid from wild anchovies, and just 1% antagonistic fatty acids, it is the superior source of purified palmitoleic acid available today.
In our arteries there are two kinds of cholesterol at work: LDL "bad" and HDL "good" cholesterol. The patented Omega-7 in Provinal helps to bioactively raise your HDL cholesterol in a way that actually improves its activity at the same time.
Omega-7 is not your average fat. A study at the University of Harvard in 2008 revealed that it also plays a crucial role in regulating our metabolism. It turns out that Palmitoleic acid is actually the first fatty acid that also works as a hormone in the human body. Coining it a 'likopine', they discovered that Palmitoleic Acid which has been produced by in the fat of the liver can actually help to protect against a range of harmful metabolic processes which induce obesity related diseases.
Swanson EFAs Provinal Purified Omega-7 is nature's most refined form of this essential fatty acid and now it's available to you as never before.
