The answers to these questions plus other facts will help you understand the importance of Fat and Fatty Acids in your life!

Many Health problems arise from the 'Fat is Bad' Dietary Approach.  Because we have to eat 'something' if we stop eating fats and fatty foods, we have skewed our diets by increasing our carbohydrate intake.  This has led to some very bad results, like obesity and Diabetes.

Some fats, like coconut oil and olive oil are very beneficial.  Other fatty acids, like fish oil, contribute necessary 'essential' metabolites to the body.  These fatty acids produce prostaglandins, which work at the cellular level.  For instance, fish oil is often recommended for heart conditions and arthritis.  But did you know that it is also very helpful for Alzheimer's and Schizophrenia

We have combined two ingredients - Black Currant seed oil and Wild Alaskan Salmon fish oil - to provide you with a very special and unique product called Ultra Omega-Linic.  This means it presents an Optimal combination of Pre Formed, Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids.   The addition of Black Currant seed oil adds the PUFA called GLA.  Its anti-inflammatory benefits enhance the effects of Fish Oil.  It has 
  • a high level of EPA for body and brain function,
  • DHA for body and brain structure, and
  • GLA to support EPA and DHA. 
During pregnancy and lactation, mothers need these Essential Fatty Acids in order to provide them to the baby for the development of its brain and retina.  The baby will take them from the mother, which could lead to problems for her, such as post partum depression.

What is Libido? Can you have more of it?

Libido is loosely defined as sex drive.  Originally (from the latin) it was defined as 'desire' or 'lust'.

With the advent of drugs like Viagra, the term has come to represent the sexual performance of the male.  Alas, there is no 'Viagra' for women.

In reality the sex drive is determined by a number of factors.  Despite the fact that psychological and social factors play a large part, the bottom line is that we are discussing the physical activity of both the man and the woman.

You should be aware that your sex drive is also affected by your age (testosterone and all hormone levels decline with age), your medical condition and (perhaps more importantly) by medications you may be taking.  We always urge you to read the information from the pharmacist listing the side effects of all your drugs. 

One of the more important ways to improve your libido is by the use of Essential Fatty acids (prostaglandin precursors).  Prostaglandin was first isolated from seminal fluid (from the prostate gland) in 1935 by a Swedish physiologist (bet you didn't know that).

Since that time the investigation into these active hormone-like lipid compounds has been very intense.  One effect of prostaglandins is the regulation of contraction and relaxation of smooth muscle tissue.  For this reason fish oil has been widely promoted for heart health.  We encourage the use of Ultra Omega-Linic because it includes the omega 6 as well as the omega 3
preformed long chain essential Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids.    The 'side effects' of taking Ultra Omega-Linic include a healthy heart, a healthy brain, less trouble with arthritis, shiny hair, glowing skin, and a healthy 'libido'.

A number of herbs are said to provide a 'natural' alternative to viagra.  One discussion I read said that a particular herb was a good alternative - provided you spent lots of money to buy the very pure form, and you took lots of it.  Another discussion stated that no herbs do what Viagra does.  But what if you don't want to take the drug?

We have 2 herbal products that merit your consideration.  PhytoAmore capsules and PhytoAmore Oil.  The oil is suitable for full body massage, yet gentle enough for sensitive areas.  What could be more exciting than that?  The capsules should be taken daily, as well as 2 hours before intimacy.

And feedback from those who have used it (men & women) has been - well - very satisfactory. 

These approaches are a lot more fun with better 'side effects' for men and women.
