Not JUST Flax Seed

OK, as if Flax seed were not already really healthy now we have something even better. This product is so amazing. I absolutely love it. It is called OptOmega by USANA Health Sciences.

I call this heart health in a bottle. Being a Physical Therapist Assistant and learning about heart disease and what contributes to it helped me to see the value in the OptOmega. There are many factors that contribute to heart disease but I will keep this a simple article.

Basically when the arterial walls become inflamed our body finds a way to repair the damage caused from the inflammation. The repair that the body does contributes to the plaque build up because it uses the low density lipo-proteins (LDL Cholesterol) in the blood to patch and repair the surface of the arterial wall. Much like repairing your wall when there are wholes or dings in it.

The LDL that is flowing in your blood keeps on attaching or sticking to the patch it made on the arterial wall which becomes blockage.

The wonderful thing about USANA having a founder who has a PH D in Microbiology and Immunology is that he knows and understands how our system works and he found a way to help our cells of our body to stay healthier.

The OptOmega is a combination of seeds; Flax, Sunflower and Pumpkin.

OptOmega is stabilized with a potent blend of antioxidants , including E-Prime, Rosemary and Turmeric, and phenols from extra-virgin olive oil.
This provides a balance of essential fatty acids, Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9.

"Of all the antioxidants, vitamin E may offer the greatest protection against heart disease because of it's ability to imbed itself into the LDL- cholesterol molecule and protect it from oxidative damage." From the Nutrisearch Comparative Guide To Nutritional Supplements
By Lyle Mac William MSc, FP

When the plaque becomes hard due to oxidation and it breaks free it is then a clot floating in your blood.

It is good to eat healthy, exercise, and take quality nutritional supplements.
OptOmega is essential for general health and well-being.

All of the oils used in the OptOmega are certified ORGANIC by the Washington State Department of Agriculture.

OptOmega is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

As always talk to your health care professional before using a product.

In good health,
Susan
