Barlean's Joint Remedy combines 210mg of patented, pharmaceutical grade Provinal Omega-7 with 40mg of hyaluronic acid in breakthrough, comprehensive joint health formula. The combination of lowered systemic inflammation, evidenced by lower CRP levels, and the restored cushioning of joints can make a dynamic difference in joint health for all ages.
Omega-7 has been clinically studied for its potential to reduce inflammation and strengthen the nervous system and joints. Hyaluronic acid is widely used to support increased cushioning in the joints and improve the quality of synovial fluid (the fluid that protects joints and bones by acting as a lubricant and shock absorber). The combination of supporting lowered systemic inflammation (from Omega-7) and the restored cushioning of joints (from Hyaluronic Acid) can significantly improve joint health.
What is Omega-7?
The "New" Fatty Acid
Omega-7s are a group of monounsaturated fatty acids that have moved to the forefront of fatty acid research. Omega-7s are found in macadamia nuts, sea buckthorn berries and cold-water fish.
The Omega-7 most studied for its health benefits is called palmitoleic acid. Although commonly found in foods together, don't confuse this with palmitic acid, which is found in palm oil and has been shown to be pro-inflammatory, which is associated with increasing your risk for heart disease and diabetes. Palmitoleic acid seems to do the exact opposite; it is believed to reduce inflammation and increase HDL (the "good" cholesterol) levels. The most potent Omega-7s are derived from ultra-purified fish oil, which has up to a 50% concentration of Omega-7 palmitoleic acid.
Heart Health Support - Flush Out The "Bad" Cholesterol
A top cause of heart disease is an over-abundance of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad" cholesterol. Large quantities of LDL block blood cells with waxy deposits, known as plaque, which can lead to coronary artery disease ("clogged" arteries) and high blood pressure. Omega-7 increases high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or "good" cholesterol, which breaks down this disease-causing plaque so the body can flush it out and keep cells clear and healthy.
What About CRP Levels?
C-Reactive Protein (CRP) is a measurement of inflammation in the body. A high CRP level is among the strongest risk factors for heart disease and stroke because it may indicate inflammation in the arteries due to plaque build-up. Anti-inflammatory Omega-7 can significantly impact or remedy this condition, and thus reduce CRP levels.
Joint Health Support - Omega-7 & Hyaluronic Acid
Omega-7 has been clinically studied for its potential to reduce inflammation and strengthen the nervous system and joints. Hyaluronic Acid
is widely used to support increased cushioning in the joints and improve the quality of synovial fluid–the fluid that protects joints and bones by
acting as a lubricant and shock absorber. The combination of lowered systemic inflammation (from Omega-7) and the restored cushioning of
joints (from Hyaluronic Acid) can significantly improve joint health.
Should I Replace Omega-3 with Omega-7?
Omega-7 is not a replacement for beneficial Omega-3, which is necessary for several essential functions and must be acquired by diet.
