Nutritional Oils: Questions and Answers
Q: I've heard remarkable things about the benefits
of nutritional oils. Can they really do so much good?
A: New research is constantly proving the remarkable benefits of nutritional
oils (EFAs). Add to the list reducing triglyceride levels and risk of blood clot
formation (and thus heart attack and stroke), and combating such conditions as
candidiasis, cardiovascular disease, excema, and psoriasis to name a few. There
is a vast amount of EFA information on the internet. A little research will convince
most people of the importance of EFAs, but the real proof are the benefits you
will experience from using ALTRUM Nutritional Oils.*
Q: Do omega-3 nutritional oils really protect my
A: A flood of scientific findings on the protective power of fish oils for
the heart points to a startling conclusion: Certain omega-3 fatty acids consumed
from a fish oil source like ALTRUM Nutritional Oils appear to offer as much
protection against dying from coronary heart disease as do cholesterol-lowering
drugs. That's particularly important after menopause in women and age 45 in men,
when coronary risk starts to rise.
Q: Is it true I don't have to worry about contaminants?
A: ALTRUM Nutritional Oils uses only molecularly distilled pharmeceutical
grade fish oil. Molecular distillation ensures you get only the purest, highest
quality fish oil in ALTRUM Nutritional Oils.
Q: Why is flax oil included in the formula?
A: Flax oil is one of the key ingredients in ALTRUM Nutritional Oils. It is
the richest vegetable source of omega-3 oils, providing the hormonal balance
balance necessary for a healthy body and shape.
Q: Does omega-3 truly fight depression?
A: Omega-3 fatty acids, like those found in ALTRUM Nutritional Oils, have
been shown to alleviate symptoms of depression. Researchers in the Netherlands
conducted a study of more than 260 depressed elderly subjects to examine how a
lack of omega-3 fatty acids might be associated with depression. Researchers
found what they called "a direct effect of fatty acid composition on mood." Subjects
with depressive disorders had a significantly lower amount of omega-3 fatty acids.
This confirms several previous studies that show how a low intake of omega-3 fatty
acids may trigger depression, especially among older people.
