Omega Coffee® is a new generation of coffee created with 100% natural coffee with highly purified USP grade omega-3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). As result, Omega Coffee® combines the wonderful favors of coffee and the healthy benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega Coffee® is the only coffee in the world meeting the U.S FDA health claim for reduced risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) on conventional foods.
Coffee is one of the most popular beverages and has many healthy effects. A recent clinical study indicated that consumption of coffee is a major source of antioxidant in American diet. Moderate drinking (as much as four cups per day, according to Health Canada) can reduce risk of type 2 diabetes, cirrhosis and cancer of the liver, and may even help improve memory and increase longevity.
There are three types of omega-3 fatty acids important for human health and these include alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). ALA is also called an "essential fatty acid" (EFA) that must come from foods because the human body cannot synthesize them from other fatty acids. ALA is usually obtained from plant sources such as flaxseed, flax oil and some other plant seeds. Although ALA can be converted to EPA and DHA, new evidence suggests that synthesis of DHA and EPA from ALA precursors is relatively inefficient and DHA and EPA must be obtained primarily from fish, shellfish or fish oil.
Broad health benefits have been found with consumption of omega -3 fatty acids. Multi-center studies found that omega-3 fatty acids are able to reduce mortality from acute myocardial infarction (heart attack), arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death, decrease atherosclerosis lesion, triglyceride(TG), ischemic stroke and blood pressure. A study from University of Michigan Medical Center concludes that "on average the impact of the reported benefit from omega-3 fatty acids is actually similar to that observed from statins!", Statins are the most common type of prescribed drug used to reduce the level of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad" cholesterol in blood and to prevent heart attack. In 2004, the U.S FDA announced allowance of a qualified health claim for reduced risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) on conventional foods that contain EPA and DHA.
Omega -3 fatty acids are also able to reduce allergy, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis), chronic hepatitis, psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis; to alleviate Alzheimer's disease, dementia and autism; to suppress breast cancer, colorectal cancer, endometrial cancer, leukemia, melanoma, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer and renal cell cancer; and to reduce depression and postpartum depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and some violent behaviors.
Omega coffee® has great taste and smooth texture. Omega coffee® cappuccino, espresso and latté are ever better. They provides a simple way to enjoy coffee and to obtain the healthy benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in a single cup.
