OMEGA-9 Science

Here are three key Omega-9 benefits to your health:

    • May help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Research has shown that omega-9 fatty acids can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Omega-9 benefits heart health because omega-9s have been shown to increase HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol) and decrease LCL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol). This may help eliminate plaque buildup in the arteries, which we know as one of the causes of heart attacks and strokes.
    • May increase energy, decrease anger and enhances mood. Omega-9 fatty acids, found in oleic acid, may help increase energy, decrease anger and enhance your mood. An independent study concluded that the use of oleic acid was associated with increased physical activity, availability of more energy and even less anger. So if you’re exhausted and irritable, you may want to boost energy levels with Omega-9, since Omega-9 benefits extend to your mood and energy levels.
    • May benefit those with Alzheimer's. Erucic acid is a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. Studies show that it may normalize the accumulation of very long chain fatty acids in the brains of patients suffering from X-linked adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD), which is a serious genetic disorder affecting the adrenal glands, spinal cord and nervous system. It’s possible that Omega-9 enhances memory and cognitive function — therefore enhancing memory impairment.

    Omega-9 benefits the heart, brain and overall well-being when consumed and produced in moderation.
