For most people taking either OmegaRx or
EicoRx on a daily basis is perfect. Some of our customers subjectively
optimize the use of the two products. Here's an explanation: GLA
converts to DGLA (dihomo-gamma linolenic acid) which is the building
block of "good" anti-inflammatory eicosanoid hormones. However, it is
also the building block of Arachadonic Acid which converts to "bad"
pro-inflammatory eicosanoids. The key to getting the most our of your
fish oil Is find the right balance of GLA to maximize the production of
anti-Inflammatory eicosanoids before there Is "spillover" and your body
begins to also produce excess Arachadonic Acid. Getting the optimal
balance of AA and DGLA has been at the core of Dr. Sears’ research to
optimize the balance of “good” and “bad” eicosanoids. Dr. Sears was
aware of this more than 25 years ago. The simple solution was to add
more of the omega-6 fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) to the fish
oil, which in turn would generate more DGLA. It turns out this was a
lot more complicated than it first appeared because not everyone is
genetically the same. Depending on your genetics, even trace amounts of
GLA could be rapidly metabolized into AA. Eventually Dr. Sears found
the answer in toasted sesame oil concentrates that contain a specific
inhibitor that prevents added GLA from increasing AA levels. This is
the key to all of our patented EPA/DHA concentrates. Using the right
levels of GLA combined with EPA/DHA concentrates containing toasted
sesame oil concentrates, the ability to optimally regulate “good” and
“bad” eicosanoids is finally available.
Everyone Is different, and that's why some
of our customers have found their own personal ratio of daily
consumption of OmegaRx (no GLA added) and EicoRx (moderate GLA). You
could consider using the Eicosanoid Status Report found on DrSears.com
to discover your own ratio of daily consumption of OmegaRx and EicoRx.
Most EicoRx users don't do this, but It Is something to consider if you
are looking to subjectively fine tune your use of Zone Labs' fish oil.

Dr. Barry Sears, creator of the Zone Diet and founder of Zone Labs, coined the term "pharmaceutical grade fish oil" in his book The OmegaRx Zone. Over the last 25 years, he has been researching omega-3 long chain fatty acids and found them to be unsurpassed in the controlling chronic low-level inflammation. Studies suggest this inflammatory condition, brought on by an overabundance of Arachadonic Acid in the cells, could lead to heart, brain, cell and immune disorders. The high concentrations of EPA and DHA in Dr. Sears' OmegaRx®, EicoRx® and EicoPro® make them among the most powerful* fish oil concentrates available today.
