Omega 3 from Sage - Improve your Hdl Ldl Ratio!

You probably are aware that taking Omega 3 is a great way to help lower your LDL (bad cholesterol) and raise your HDL (good cholesterol), thereby improving your hdl ldl ratio. Omega 3 fats have wonderful properties which are so good for your health. Among them: They are good for your heart, they help your vascular system, they help prevent strokes (by acting as a natural blood thinner); they are good for depression and aid concentration.

Many people have been taking Omega 3 for years and many people want to give it to their kids as well. The problem is that the form that is largely used nowadays is Omega 3 from fish oil. This has lots of good benefits like those I mentioned above. But there are also disadvantages. For example, people who take blood thinners should not take fish oil. Diabetics shouldn't take fish oil. People who are allergic to iodine may under no circumstances take fish oil. Pregnant women need Omega 3 but should avoid fish oil because of the presence of mercury and other toxic metals. Same goes for children. Babies until age 2 MUST take omega 3 for the proper development of the brain (which is made up of 40% fat). Fish oil is not an option for them either.

Another problem with fish oil is the disgusting taste and the tendency to repeat on you. There is nothing worse than burping up (excuse me) fish oil a couple of hours after taking a capsule.

Today there is an alternative!!! Marvalous is an Israeli startup company which has a 20 year patent on the production of vegetarian Omega 3 from a plant which grows exclusively in Israel. This plant is called Salvia Sclarea and is a form of Sage, which is considered a safe food by the U.S. FDA. The Hebrew word for "sage" is "Marva", hence the name of the company - Marvalous.

Each capsule of Marvalous Omega 3 has 500 m"g of pure ALA, which is raw Omega 3. This is the "stuff" that is in the seaweed at the bottom of the ocean, which the fish eat in order to produce DHA and EPA (the ingredients present in the fish oil capsules). ALA is what is present in mother's milk all the while a mother is nursing her baby. Other than nursing mothers, no human being can produce ALA, yet we all need it to be healthy.

The Sage plant in Israel has seeds. These seeds are cold pressed (like olive oil) and not processed in any way. The oil is put into capsules and these capsules are sold by Marvalous. The capsules are tasteless at best. At worst, they taste a teeny bit like walnuts. Totally not offensive. They do not repeat on you!!! Pregnant women may (and should) take it. Children can take it. So can diabetics, people on blood thinners and vegetarians. Omega 3 from the sage plant is good for improving your hdl ldl ratio and your entire vascular system. It gives protection from inflammatory diseases as well.
