NanOmega Heart, Brain & Vision Superfood
Heart Brain and Vision SuperFood from Flax & Marine Algae
Ever have minor aches and pains? How about chronic joint pain? That's inflamation. Has your health care provider told you that you need to increase your intake of omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFA's) or told you to add wild, fatty fish to your diet? If you don't want to eat (more) fatty fish or need a great vegan alternative to fish oil, you can still get the omega-3 EFA's with the great-tasting Vegan NanOmega3, the heart, brain and vision superfood from BioPharma Scientific. NanOmega3 is a bright orange pineapple flavor and blends easy in just a shaker cup and cold water or unsweetened almond milk.
1 container contains 360 gm, providing 30 twelve gm servings, a month's supply.
Following Recommendations for Omega-3 Fatty Acids Consumption
There are two distinct types of essential fatty acids: omega-3 and omega-6.
Because omega-6 EFA's (trans fat, saturated fat, etc.) are less healthy, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association (AHA) recommend you consume much more omega-3 fatty acids, while cutting down on omega-6 EFA's.
The main sources of omega-3 fatty acids in the American diet include fish, flaxseed and walnuts, which makes it difficult for most Americans to eat a balanced diet. Because of this, many health professionals recommend you consume omega-3 dietary supplements and "functional foods" now being fortified with omega-3 EFAs.
Discover a Vegan Alternative to Fish Oil Pills
You may have considered a fish oil supplement to increase your omega-3 intake, but perhaps fish oil pills are not an option for you because you are a vegan, vegetarian or you just cannot handle the burps. Or, maybe you don't like the fishy taste (or after effects) of fish oil supplements. You can still get the omega-3 EFAs that you need with NanOmega3™.
Not only does NanOmega3™ provide you with the needed omega-3 essential fatty acids, but it also has a delicious pineapple/orange flavor … and no fish burps.

Organic and Vegan Ingredients with Vitamins E, D, B6, B12 & Folic Acid: It's an Omega3 Super Food Made Easy!
NanOmega3, Golden Flax, Vegan DHA and Synergistic Vitamins is a unique formulation supplying omega 3 fatty acids both as ALA from organic flaxseed and DHA from marine algae (not fish). This unique addition of DHA to the flax is very important as the short chain omega 3 alpha linolenic acid (ALA) can be moderately well converted to the long chain EPA, but ALA is very poorly converted to DHA, so important to eye, brain and heart health. NanOmega3 is the first functional food powder mix to provide multiple flaxseed benefits, while supplementing DHA at the same time.
While supplementing with fish oil is a reasonable supplemental alternative to eating fish, NanOmega3 provides many advantages over fish oil, whether taken by pill or spoon.

Nutrition Science on EFA, EPA, DHA, ALA, Flax & Vitamins D, E, B6, B12 & Folate*
"Getting flax in your daily diet is as important as brushing your teeth or taking your multivitamin" David Williams, DC, Editor, Alternatives® Health Technology Report.
“Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential for health and are classified commonly into omega-3 and omega-6 families. The omega-3 family includes alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), while the omega-6 family includes linoleic acid (LA), gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), dihomogammalinolenic acid (DGLA), and arachidonic acid (AA).
The North American population consumes in excess of LA and AA but not enough of omega-3 EFAs. Due to modern life style and dietary habits, LA is not metabolized properly leading to a functional deficiency of GLA and DGLA. DGLA produces anti-inflammatory, vasodilatory and anti-aggregatory eicosanoids while AA produces pro-inflammatory, vasoconstrictor, and pro-aggregatory eicosanoids. Excess of AA may be contributing to many of the health problems common to North American society.
A change in dietary habits to include more fruits and vegetables and the elimination of processed foods can correct this imbalance; however, changing dietary habits is a most difficult act. EFAs can be supplemented as capsules but many people do not want to take them. Fortification of food with EFAs provides an excellent opportunity as more people are buying foods that offer healthy choices. At the same time, people do not want to sacrifice taste.” - Essential Fatty Acids and Functional Foods. Rakesh Kapoor, Bioriginal Food & Science Corp., Canada
To help you better appreciate the importance and potential of plant based omega3 supplementation with synergistic vitamins in functional food, or "super food" formulas, there follows below articles and charts written or selected by Doctor Maher, V.P. of Education and Research for BioPharma Scientific®.
This brief article by Dr. Maher presents the pro’s and cons of supplementing omega 3 fatty acids with fish oil vs flax and presents the scientific rational for the unique combination of ingredients in NanOmega3.
Fish vs. Flax: The Alpha and the Omega
Although fish oil is well known to promote heart health, flax has a surprising amount of positive heart health research as well as this article by Dr Maher demonstrates.

This two page report of a scientific study with comments from Dr. Maher explains why NanOmega3 is as complete as fish oil when it comes to omega3 nutrition, while providing so much more.
New Study: Dietary ALA sufficient to raise omega-3 levels
Some may know flaxseed is the most readily available plant source of the essential omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), and is rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber. Fewer, however, are aware of the potentially wholesome effects of the antioxidant phytoestrogen lignans found so abundantly in flaxseed.

Flaxseed is one of nature's most nutrient rich grains. Flax’s healthy omega-3 EFA, lignan, fibers, balanced protein and natural antioxidants, and their potential to support a wide range of general health functions are briefly reviewed here.
Nutritional Benefits of Flax
Understanding the composition of flax helps in recognizing its value in a healthy diet. The physical descriptors of flax or linseed, as it is sometimes called, distinguish it from other major oil seeds such as canola and sunflower. The following discussion provides a basis for considering the health benefits of flax.
Flaxseed is rich in ALA, a short chain omega3 that can be converted somewhat into the long chain EPA. However, its conversion to the long chain DHA is poor. A vegan marine algae source (non fish) DHA has been added to NanOmega3 because of its many unique benefits as outlined in this abstract published in Pharmological Research.
The Health Benefits of DHA
DHA supplementation is usually indicated in any one who does not eat fish regularly. NanOmega3™ is especially important for pregnant and nursing women and infants. It helps supply the DHA their diet may lack. Supplementation with a biologically equivalent DHA oil increased DHA blood levels in pregnant women1 and in the milk levels2,3 and blood levels of lactating women3 or their babies.2 This may help support structural development of their babies' brain and eyes.

Lignans, for which flaxseed is the richest source, have a very positive influence on health, especially in women.

Two recent studies published in the International Journal of Nutrition and Cancer (IJCN) provide further evidence that higher intake of omega-3-fats, vitamin E, beta-carotene and dietary fiber can help reduce the risk of breast cancer. Previous evidence suggests that as much as 50 percent of breast cancer cases are attributable to faulty dietary behaviors.

Various study results involving folate (AKA folic acid or vitamin B9) reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, including analysis of existing data on folate levels during the fortification efforts begun in 1998, as well as papers on plasma folate and cognitive performance, and folate intake and cardiovascular endothelial health, are briefly reviewed herein.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, vitamins B12, B6 and B9 (folic acid) work closely together to control blood levels of the amino acid homocysteine. Elevated levels of this substance appear to be linked to heart disease. Plus, vitamin B6 is essential for normal brain development and function, participating in the process of making important brain chemicals called neurotransmitters.
