OmegaPlex - Botanical/marine combination for prostanoid balance
OmegaPlex is a broad-spectrum essential fatty acid supplement, providing special fatty acids from both the omega-3 (EPA/DHA) and omega-6 (GLA) families in easy-to-swallow capsules. In addition to the separate benefits of flax, borage, and fish oils, combinations of these have been shown to favorably benefit the immune system and bone density; future research promises to explore additional synergistic effects.
Given the evidence that Americans seldom obtain sufficient amounts of these essential fatty acids, OmegaPlex is a valuable adjunct to many supportive nutrition interventions.
Refer to About…Flax Oil, GLA/Borage Oil and Fish Oil (see above).
Borage seed oil, in combination with fish oil, favorably influences the immune system through effects on interleukins and other cytokines (Biochem Soc Trans 1997;25:343S).
Combined sources of GLA and EPA/DHA are helpful adjuncts to a nutritional program to help maintain normal bone density (Aging (Milano) 1998;10:385-94).

Extensive research has linked dietary omega-3 fatty acids found in cold-water fish with beneficial changes in platelet function and lipid metabolism that are consistent with heart and vascular health.
Borage seed oil and its component, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), have been shown to lower blood pressure by acting as a vasodilator.
GLA is the precursor of the 1-series prostaglandins, which have broad and important regulatory activities in the body, notably the modulation of production of 2-series prostanoids, which are pro-inflammatory and pro-thrombotic mediators.
GLA is normally a product of a desaturation enzyme (D6D) which declines in activity with aging and ill-health, but is overcome by exogenous sources of GLA that re-establish normal production levels of 1-series prostaglandins.
