Echiomega echium seed oil (sourced from Echium plantagineum) contains a unique ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, providing the richest natural source of SDA, ALA and GLA.
SDA is the direct precursor to the long-chain omega-3 fatty acid EPA and can produce up to five times more EPA than ALA (found in most other plant-sourced omega-3 oils such as flaxseed or hempseed). Echium seed oil`s unique composition makes it a superior plant-derived omega-rich oil - an ideal alternative to fish oil as a means of increasing long-chain omega-3 EPA levels.
Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats in the diet contributes to the maintenance of normal blood LDL cholesterol concentrations needed for the support of a healthy heart. With the additional benefits of the omega-9 fatty acid oleic acid, Echiomega is a rich source of both polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats.

Echiomega provides the ideal building blocks for the efficient production of the omega-3 fatty acid EPA. Whilst supplementation is often necessary to correct omega-3 deficiencies, a healthy diet and active lifestyle play a crucial role in maintaining overall wellbeing.
