  • Omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) improve a number of abnormalities in individuals with diabetes mellitus and related metabolic conditions. Hyperglycemia causes significant impairment to desaturase enzymes‚ resulting in poor conversion to the polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) DHA‚ EPA‚ and GLA from their precursors. The decrease in PUFA bioavailability affects membrane permeability as well as microcirculation‚ both known to be impaired in diabetics. Supplemental DHA and EPA help to restore normal cellular membrane content‚ and improve microcirculation. Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil also improve a number of cardiovascular risk factors which often accompany diabetes‚ including lowering of atherosclerotic burden‚ reducing triglyceride levels‚ blood pressure‚ and markers of inflammation‚ as well as improving platelet and vascular function. 

    GLA is complementary to the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil‚ and has been shown to prevent the symptoms and nerve degeneration associated with diabetic neuropathy. Purified fish oils are free of many contaminants‚ such as heavy metals and PCBs‚ which continue to be a growing problem associated with the consumption of fish.

    Benefits
    Optimal ratio of 2:1 EPA to DHA
    The pharmaceutical grade omega-3 blend is the only fish oil in the world to have achieved the highest USP standard verifying the quality and consistency of the fish oil
    Stringent quality control standards ensure that this highly purified fish oil concentrate is free from lipid peroxides and environmental pollutants‚ including heavy metals‚ pesticides‚ dioxins‚ PCBs and other harmful compounds
    Omega-3 fish oil is sourced from wild anchovies‚ sardines‚ and / or mackerel‚ one of the best natural sources of EPA and DHA
    Harvested through sustainable fishing practices
    These small fish are less likely to be exposed to toxins because they are short lived‚ and low on the food chain
    Wild fish are superior to farmed fish as they not only have more omega-3s‚ but contain less saturated fat and no antibiotic or hormone residues
    The borage seed oil is cold pressed and purified to remove any organic residuals
    Highly bioavailable softgel

    Additional Information
    Drug Interactions: The antihypertensive effect of fish oil may potentially reduce the need or dosage for blood pressure medications‚ and patients should be closely monitored. Because fish oil and GLA have antithrombotic effects‚ caution is advised for those on anticlotting‚ antiplatelet‚ or anticoagulant medications‚ or those at high risk of bleeding. At doses of fish oil greater than 3g per day‚ hyperglycemia has been observed in diabetics and those with hypertriglyceridemia‚ and close monitoring of patients on antidiabetic medication is recommended. Benefit has been shown when fish oil is taken with statins‚ SSRIs‚ anticonvulsant‚ and cytotoxic medications.
