About the Ingredients
Antioxidant oil blend
A unique, balanced and synergistic array of antioxidant and phytonutrient rich seed oils with broad nutritional and healing properties including:
Green tea seed oil
Featuring a nutritional profile similar to olive oil, green tea seed oil is also rich in antioxidants, displaying a number of remarkable antiseptic, fungicide, bactericide and lipid-lowering effects. Green tea seed oil does not contain caffeine.
Pomegranate seed oil
Rich in punicic acid, an Omega-5 conjugated fatty acid, pomegranate seed oil has strong chemopreventative, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial effects and contains tocopherols, beta-sitosterol, stigmasterol and campesterol.
Black cumin seed oil
The subject of numerous scientific studies and clinical trials, including its beneficial impact on the immune system, black cumin seed oil’s antioxidant levels are among the very highest of all plant oils.
Black raspberry seed oil
Featuring exceptional diversity and ultra-rich content of antioxidants, black raspberry seed oil contains four different forms of Vitamin E (alpha and gamma tocopherol, beta and gamma tocotrienol).
Blueberry seed oil
One of the most potent sources of tocopherols, carotenoids and naturally-occurring antioxidants in the berry family, blueberry seed oil exhibits powerful free radical scavenging properties. Cranberry seed oil Rich in gamma tocopherol, which has the highest antioxidant capacity of all of the tocopherols, cranberry seed oil also exhibits excellent emollient, moisturizing and derma-protective properties.
Hemp seed oil
Considered by many to be nature’s most perfectly balanced oil, hemp seed oil is rich in Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) in an ideal 1:3 ratio. Hemp seed oil also contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA), oleic acid and stearidonic acid, a combination that is unique among edible seed oils. In addition, hemp seed oil contains antioxidants like Vitamin E, carotene, and alkaline-forming chlorophyll, which gives it a deep green colour. As a bonus, hemp seed oil has a pleasant, nutty flavour that goes well with most recipes.
Flax seed oil
One of the richest sources of Omega-3 EFAs in the plant kingdom, more than half the fat in flax seeds is alphalinolenic fatty acid (ALA), the essential Omega-3 fatty acid. Scientific studies show that Omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial for proper infant growth and development, reduction of cholesterol, brain and skin health, and protection against coronary heart disease, hypertension, stroke, auto-immune and inflammatory and disorders and cancer.
Pumpkin seed oil
A great source of Omega-6 and Omega-9 EFAs and favorable plant sterols, pumpkin seed oil offers many health benefits including cholesterol regulation, prostate maintenance, bladder control, hormone balance and reproductive health.
Nature’s richest source of medium-chain triglycerides or MCTs, coconut oil can help improve digestion, strengthen the immune system, protect against infectious illnesses and degenerative
The Skinny on Fat
We all know that dietary fat is crucial for optimal health and metabolism. What is less clear, however, is how to choose the right kind of fats. In general, saturated fats (found primarily in animal and dairy products) should be avoided and, instead, a wide variety of plant-based fats should be consumed in moderation, with particular emphasis on polyunsaturated fats.
Within polyunsaturated fats are substances called Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), namely Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. EFAs control or modulate an amazing number of cellular processes and are as important as protein, carbohydrates, vitamins or minerals. EFAs are aptly named as they must be obtained from food; the body can not make them on its own.
Volumes of scientific studies support the fact that a diet rich in unprocessed, plant-based good fats can help
- enhance brain and nervous system function
- increase energy and performance
- reduce cardiovascular disease
- strengthen the immune system
- improve organ and gland function
- grow healthy skin, hair, and nails
- reduce inflammation
- regulate body weight
Supplementing with a full spectrum, balanced blend of oils such as those found in Vega Antioxidant EFA Blend can help you attain those much needed good fats and ensure your body is running smoothly on all cylinders.
