Marine-Sourced Omega-3 Oils
doTERRA uses the highest-quality marine omega-3 oils in xEO Mega. Both fish oils are tested for over 250 contaminants and are certified sustainable by the prestigious European organization Friend of the Sea.
ALA and SDA
xEO Mega delivers a unique source of plant-based oils derived from the ahiflower (Buglossoides arvensis). Our cold-pressed ahiflower seed oil provides a concentrated source for both ALA and SDA, which the body can convert more easily to EPA. Both ALA and SDA promote cardiovascular health.*
ALA and SDA are produced by many plants, but because of the low amounts of vegetables in the standard American diet, they’re often not consumed in adequate amounts. Our ahiflower seed oil also delivers GLA, which may help support joint, lung, and nervous system health.*
Astaxanthin and Vitamin E
Omega-3 fatty acids are important for circulatory and brain health.* The brain is made up of essential lipids that are prone to degradation from free-radical oxidation, like the lipids traveling the circulatory system.
xEO Mega includes astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant carotenoid that helps protect against lipid oxidation in the brain and throughout the circulatory system.* Astaxanthin provides powerful antioxidant and circulatory benefits, supports eye health, improves muscle strength and endurance, aids the liver and digestive system, supports skin health, and promotes healthy immune function.*
The astaxanthin in xEO Mega is a standardized extract of microalgae cultivated in a pure water system and activated by light. In response to light exposure, the microalgae produce astaxanthin as a defense mechanism against oxidation, changing from a light green to a deep crimson. The astaxanthin is then extracted from the microalgae, microfiltered, and standardized for potency.
The astaxanthin is coupled with natural vitamin E to provide further circulatory and systemic benefits as powerful antioxidant additions to the antioxidant essential oils in xEO Mega.*
xEO Mega also includes 20 micrograms of natural vitamin D. Vitamin D is fat-soluble and is present in a limited number of foods like fish, beef liver, cheese, egg yolks, and fortified dairy products. It can also be synthesized in the body when exposed to sunlight.
Vitamin D plays an essential role in bone health and growth.* As with the omega-3 fatty acids in xEO Mega, vitamin D promotes healthy immune function and a healthy response to oxidative stress.*
CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade Essential Oils
xEO Mega contains a proprietary blend of CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade essential oils that harmoniously work with the omega-3 fatty acids. These essential oils also function as a natural preservative system that protects the omega-3 fatty acids and lipid-soluble vitamins from oxidizing and going rancid. Clove and Thyme, for example, have antioxidant properties that protect xEO Mega from oxidation and rancidity.*
The essential oils make taking xEO Mega as pleasant as it is healthful, as they support healthy immune function and have calming digestive effects.*
