There is wide speculation as to the effects of Omega 3 fatty acids on bone density. This speculation has led to several studies conducted in attempts to understand its affect on osteoporosis, both as a preventive measure and as a treatment method.
In one study in Sweden, a study was conducted on 78 healthy young men which demonstrated that Omega 3 DHA intake is “positively associated with bone mineral accrual and, thus, with peak BMD (Bone Mineral Density) in young men.”
A second study conducted on women over the age of 65 suggested that a healthy dose of Omega 3 EPA, in addition to daily doses of calcium carbonate, not only did bone density reduction stop, but there was actually an increase of an average 4.7% in femoral bone density!
While neither of these studies can be considered clinical proof of Omega 3 effects on Osteoporosis, they are very suggestive in Omega 3 supporting healthy bone density, which is probably a big hope for people diagnosed with Osteoporosis.

There is a lot of scientific research trying to establish a relationship between Omega 3 intake (particularly DHA), and Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder (ADD/ADHD).
There are several studies supporting the idea that maintaining healthy levels of Omega 3 DHA helps reduce the chances to be clinically diagnosed with ADD/ADHD.
It’s important to note that much of the research does not necessarily seek to show that Omega 3 DHA supplements can be used as a treatment to ADD/ADHD (although there is research that supports just that), but rather showing that adults and children diagnosed with ADD/ADHD are likely to also have a lack of Omega 3 fatty acids in their body.

Why is Omega 3 called Omega 3? The reasoning behind the name has to do with the molecular composition of the acids in the Omega 3 family. These acids all share a common carbon-carbon double bond. This bond is located in the third bond from the Methyl end of the fatty acid. The proper terminology for that is n−3. That’s why these acids are formally called n−3 acids, or commonly ω−3 (Omega 3) fatty acids.

Over the past 20 years, there have been many studies conducted that clearly illustrate that children who are fed breast milk develop better, physically and mentally, than those who don’t receive breast milk.
It’s not a secret. And it’s important enough that even the Vatican did a study on the importance on breast feeding.
The researchers pointed a very clear finger at the presence of high levels of DHA being the prime source of increased IQs in children. To the extent that one study which added Omega-3 rich food to children in Mauritania actually found that these children were statistically less likely to have a criminal record when they grew!
Salvia Sclarea is a species of sage, commonly referred to as “clary sage”. For the scientifically enlightened out there, the full scientific name of the plant is the Plantae Angiosperms Eudicots Asterids Lamiales Lamiaceae Salvia sclarea.
Marvalous Omega 3 oil is naturally cold-pressed from the seeds of the Salvia Sclarea. The extracted oil contains approximately 50% Omega 3 ALA. The remaining 50% includes Sclareol, Sterols, Co-enzyme Q10, Vitamin E and much more.
Aside from the use of the seeds to produce the Omega 3 rich oil, the sticky seeds have been used since the 17th century to help remove foreign objects from the eyes. The sclareol emitted by the plant is also used in some perfumes and can be found in many scent or aroma shops.
