Igennus Echiomega supplies Echium seed oil, which has a unique omega-3-6-9 makeup that makes it superior to other commonly available plant oils such as flaxseed. It is rich in a special form of omega-3 called SDA that is much more easily converted to EPA and DHA – the active long-chain omega-3s in fish oil that offer brain, heart and eye health benefits.

Echium seed oil is also rich in fats typically sourced from other healthy oils. Echium contains the ‘good’ omega-6 GLA, for which evening primrose oil is sought after, as well as the omega-9 oleic acid – the principal fat in olive oil that is consumed in large amounts in the Mediterranean diet. Offering an optimal balance of omega-3-6-9, Echiomega is an excellent plant source of health-enhancing good fats.

Echium seed oil is the ideal nutritional supplement for those who are vegetarian, vegan or allergic to fish, to help boost the levels of the important omega fats in the diet.

Echiomega contains approximately 73% polyunsaturated fatty acids, of which 26% are are omega-6 and 47% omega-3. This optimal omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 1:1.8 makes it an ideal oil for nutraceutical application.

Echiomega is also the highest commercially available source of SDA, a unique omega-3 fatty acid that has known benefits for immune function and for regulating inflammatory pathways. Furthermore as the direct precursor to EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), SDA can synthesise up to 5 times more EPA than ALA alone, making echium seed oil a superior alternative to other plant-derived oils such as flaxseed or hempseed oil. EPA is a significant omega-3 fatty acid that plays an integral role in the proper functioning and structure of the brain. EPA may improve the cardiovascular system by reducing the stickiness of platelets in the blood and by lowering blood pressure. It is also converted into prostaglandins (hormone- like substances which control many bodily functions) and leukotrienes (important for the correct functioning of the immune system) which regulate inflammation and pain, and also help to maintain healthy joints.

The omega-6 fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) is vital for the structure of the brain – it ensures that cell membranes are permeable, thus contributing to efficient brain function. GLA is the precursor to dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA), which is converted into prostaglandins that regulate inflammation, pain, blood clotting and fluid balance. Furthermore, oils that contain both SDA and GLA raise EPA levels significantly better than oils that contain SDA alone. Oleic acid, usually associated with the ‘Mediterranean diet’, has been shown to slow the development of heart disease by lowering total cholesterol levels and raising levels of high-density lipoproteins (HDL or ‘good’ cholesterol), whilst lowering low-density lipoproteins (LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol).
