Low Totox values
Low Totox values are considered a sign of a good-quality Omega-3 oil. Totox is a calculated value of “oxidation products” in the relevant omega-3-oil values and is the sum of 2x PV + AV. The Totox value in the fish oil we use in our Pure Arctic Oil is lower, and thus better than the lowest value measured in “TV2 hjelper deg”, a Norwegian consumer guide program when testing Norwegian omega-3 products in 2014. The lowest value measured in the program was 9,3. The values in the omega-3 oil Eqology uses varies slightly depending on the batch but is somewhere between 4 and 6.
Essential Fatty Acids
Fatty acids are highly important in ensuring that all the body’s functions, including the brain, muscles, circulatory and respiratory systems and skin work as they should. Fatty acids are divided into omega-3, -6 and -9. Omega-3 and -6 are essential fatty acids, which means that we are not able to produce them on our own, but have to get them through our diet or as a supplement. These fatty acids are necessary for the development of the brain, the function of the immune system and the regulation of blood pressure, and it is highly important to get them daily to ensure optimal development
A Changing Diet
Before the industrial revolution, the Western diet had about as much omega-3 as omega-6. The last 40 – 50 years have, however, seen big changes in what we eat. Today we consume a lot of processed foods and vegetable oils from i.a. soy, sunflower and corn, which have up to 80% omega-6 and little or no omega-3. There is also a notable amount of omega-6 in feed given to the animals that are the source of the animal products we consume – the same can be true for feed given to farmed fish.
An imbalance with a large majority of omega-6 fatty acids can be a big problem for your health. Unfortunately, this is the case for most of us, without us even knowing it. Today the ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids in the typical Western diet is between 10:1 and 20:1. This means that we are getting up to 20 times more omega-6 than we are omega-3. The recommended ratio is under 5:1. During the last decade it has become general knowledge that long-lasting inflammations are a driving factor in several chronic diseases, i.a. cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes and obesity. A ratio higher than 5:1 increases the length and severity of inflammatory reactions. Balanced omega-6 and omega-3 could be one of the keys to better health and to reducing chronic illnesses.
We also added omega-9 fatty acids and high levels of polyphenol antioxidants from a unique cold-pressed, high-quality olive oil that has been awarded the NYIOOC GOLD AWARD. Omega-9 contributes to maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system and balancing blood sugar levels. The solution to preventing inflammatory responses and cardiovascular disease is to increase the intake of high-quality omega-3 and omega-9, instead of merely reducing the intake of omega-6.
