Omega-7, Provinal® Purified Omega-7

Omega-7, Provinal® Purified Omega-7

Provinal® Purified Omega-7 is a unique formula that supports healthy metabolic factors. Scientists are increasingly excited about the newly discovered effects of another family of beneficial fats omega-7 fatty acids. Omega-7 palmitoleic acid powerfully complements omega-3 fatty acids with cellular-signaling properties that promote a healthy heart, support a healthy inflammatory response and optimize normal metabolism of glucose and insulin.

Benefits include:

  • Supports healthy metabolic factors
  • Helps Maintain superior cardiovascular health
  • Supports a healthy inflammatory response
  • Optimizes normal metabolism of glucose and insulin
  • Supports Healthy Metabolic Factors

Scientific studies show that palmitoleic acid promotes healthy levels of triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL, and HDL for those already in normal range after just one month of supplementation at 210 mg.

Further studies have found within normal range, palmitoleic acid can help balance C-reactive protein levels8 and optimize insulin sensitivity.

Life Extension®'s omega-7 supplement contains Provinal® a highly refined anchovy and/or menhaden oil that is concentrated to 50% palmitoleic acid.

Provinal® contains purified palmitoleic acid, an omega-7 monounsaturated fatty acid (MUFA). Palmitoleic acid is formed in the body from the conversion of glucose to fatty acids, or can be obtained in the diet from plant and marine sources. This fatty acid has been shown to support healthy cholesterol and C-reactive protein levels for those already within a normal range, and has a beneficial effect on other metabolic parameters. Palmitoleic acid acts as a direct regulator of metabolism, with actions including:

  • Suppression of adipocyte cytokine expression
  • Promotion of pancreatic B cell proliferation and secretory function to support insulin production and glucose management
  • Enhancement of skeletal muscle glucose uptake
  • Stimulation of adipocyte peroxisome proliferator?activated receptor (PPAR)-gamma transcriptional activity, a nuclear receptor involved in fatty acid metabolism as well as modulation of cell proliferation and differentiation
