Solgar exclusive Omega Advanced 2:1:1 blend of blackcurrant seed oil, flax oil, sunflower oil, organic olive oil and DHA offers a full spectrum combination of Omega-3, 6 and 9 in a 2:1:1 ration, which many experts recommend as the best ration to promote optimal health. Blackcurrant seed oil is rich in steridonic acid, which unlike alpha-linolenic acid from flax, converts easily to EPA, one of the most important Omega-3 fatty acids, The addition of DHA Gold, a patented algae-derived form of DHA, means that the blend provides a complete omega-3 profile that is suitable for vegans. Rosemary and mixed tocopherols are added for their powerful antioxidant properties, which help protect the oil, and contribute to the nutritional profile of the product. The importance of consuming omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids is well documented and increasingly consumers are looking to include high quality oils into their diet.

The most valuable omega-3 fatty acids are EPA and DHA, which are derived from fish. Vegetarian sources of omega-3 include flax seeds and walnuts, although these provide ALA, which then has to be converted to EPA and DHA, a process that can be inefficient in some people. Solgar Omega Advanced Blend 2:1:1 provides a complete fatty acid profile including LA, ALA, GLA, SDA, AA, EPA and DHA in a convenient vegan format.
