Omega

VitaMist Omega (Blue Green Sea Spray) combines omega-3 (linolenic) and omega-6 (linoleic) fatty acids extracted from both spirulina, blue-green algae found in various spots around the globe, and flaxseed, a plant whose cultivation stretches back to ancient Egypt.

Spirulina, a natural algae (cyanobacteria) powder, is extremely high in protein, as well as other nutrients. Largely made up of protein and essential amino acids, spirulina also has a high natural iron content and is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as omega-6 and omega-9.

Why flax seed and not fish oil, you ask? Fish and fish oil have long been touted as excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids. The problems with fish oils, however, are twofold. The quantity of omega-3 fatty acids that they offer is less than that of flaxseed oil. This is largely because fish oil contains roughly equal amounts of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9. Therefore, fish oil supplements are providing you with an equal mix of the three, despite -6 and -9 not being as beneficial. The second problem with fish oil is that it can expose you to small amounts of mercury. While not a huge risk while eating fish from time to time, taking a fish oil supplement regularly can cause that mercury to build up in your system, with the potential for deadly results. Flax seed oil, on the other hand, is a perfectly safe alternative, with the added benefit that, like spirulina, it contains a much higher ratio of omega-3 fatty acids than omega-6 and omega-9.

In addition to these quality ingredients, Vitamist Omega spay vitamin includes chlorophylls and carotenoids, including beta-carotene, providing you with their antioxidant effects.
