Quick Overview

    Product Description

    While omega-3 fatty acids have significant health benefits, the omega-6 fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) offers similar anti-inflammatory, vasodilatory, smooth muscle relaxing, and anti-platelet aggregation effects. Borage oil is a rich source of GLA – higher than evening primrose oil. Omega Plus provides an omega 3:6 ratio designed to provide a healthful balance of these important EFAs. Because the typical diet contains significantly more omega-6 than -3 fatty acids, fish oils make up a greater percentage of the product. Clinical studies yielding positive benefits from the combination of omega-3 fatty acids and GLA include cardiovascular disease, asthma, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and osteoporosis. Studies have found a combination of GLA with EPA and DHA improves LDL:HDL ratios and triglyceride levels. Now Omega Plus contains 300 mg EPA and 200 mg DHA in each gelcap. Greater concentration for more efficient dosing.

    Many places on the internet are out of stock on Thorne Omega Plus 90 capsules. I bought 8 bottles on my first order which is only a 45 day supply for four family members which wiped out your inventory. I hope you will maintain Thorne Omega Plus in stock so I can order at least 8 bottles or as many as we need every 45 days to meet our family's needs. Delivery was prompt and within a few days of placing my order.

    • It's terrific!

      My eye specialist started me on this to help me with my dry eyes. I take between 3-4 per day.
      But that's not all it helps. My acid reflux is gone now. Hurray. And I bet this is helping my heart as well.
      One tip to prevent fish burps...throw the bottle in the freezer and take the frozen gelcaps.
