Thompson’s Omega Combination combines the power of Evening Primrose Oil with the benefits of fish oils. The Omega 6 and Omega 3 group of essential fatty acids (EFA’s) are ‘essential’ to the body because they:
* are part of our basic cellular structure.
* make up the myelin sheath which insulates nerve cells and ensures the transmission of information to vital organs.
* are part of the mitochondria, the cell ‘battery’ that fuels and energises the body.
* they supply the ‘raw’ materials or precursors to the ‘good’ prostaglandin series 1 and 3 that reduce inflammation and prevent blood clotting.
