Omega 3 FAQs

How do you take Auum properly?

What are Omega 3 and Omega 6 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids?

Omega 3’s and 6’s are essential fatty acids and the number refers to the long chain of carbon atoms and polyunsaturates. These omegas were initially discovered by Drs. Burr and Burr in the 1930s, who studied Eskimos and found nearly 0% heart disease and cancer.

What are Essential Fatty Acids?

Both Omega 3 and Omega 6 are essential fatty acids (EFA’s) and are considered crucial for normal growth and development (the “good” fats). They cannot be manufactured naturally in the body. You obtain your Omega 3’s and Omega 6’s from what you eat.

Where do we get Omega 3 and 6?

Omega 6 is found in common vegetable oils (corn, soybean, sunflower, etc.).
Omega 3 is found in marine food and seal oils.

How much Omega 3 and Omega 6 do we need?

Omega 3 and Omega 6 remain “good fats” as long as they are balanced in our diets.
Most of the world’s major health organizations now suggest a maximum range of between one omega 3 to four omega 6 (1:4) to one omega 3 to six omega 6 (1:6) depending on your age and sex. The range is now moving towards a one omega 3 to one omega 6 (1:1) for a healthy balance.

When taking an Omega 3 supplement, does it interfere with the thinning of the blood?

A dose of 1.8g/day EPA approximately forty-seven (47) – 500 mg capsules did not result in prolongation in bleeding time. But 4 g/day increased bleeding time and decreased platelet count with no adverse effects. In human studies there never has been a case of clinical overdosing, even in patients undergoing Angioplasty, while patients were taking fish oil supplements.

Is Omega 3 recommended by Health Departments?

The Government of Canada recently recommended that each Canadian should increase their daily intake of Omega 3 to reduce the Omega 3 – Omega 6 imbalance. The United States Department of Health and Nutritional Services, The National Institute of Health, and the Council of Responsible Nutrition have all agreed  that the daily intake of Omega3 should be increased. The World Health Organization recommends that all adults increase their daily intake of Omega 3.

Are our modern diets in balance with respect to Omega 3 and Omega 6?

Modern diets deliver too much Omega 6 leading to acute imbalance of somewhere between 1 Omega 3 to 14 Omega 6 (1:14) or even 1 Omega 3 to 20 Omega 6 (1:20). Some doctors suggest that this imbalance may be as high as 1-60.
** Simopoulos and Robinson: The Omega Plan, 1998 Harpper Collins, p5 Harris, W. Backgrounder vol2, July 1997

Should we fear this imbalance of Omegas?

As long as the Omega3’s and Omega 6’s in our bodies are in balance they compliment each other. Many doctors agree that an Omega 6 imbalance leads to a marked increase in such dietary diseases as cancer, heart attack, stroke, diabetes, arthritis and skin disorders.
**Simpopoulos and Robinson, p 32

Why does this imbalance happen in our diets?

Modern foods are high in Omega6 and low in Omega 3. When we couple our modern eating habits with the fact that excess Omega 6 is stored in the body as fat, while any unused omega 3 is quickly disposed of by the body, the problem becomes clear.

Is excess Omega 6 dangerous?

Many recent studies indicate that it could be. Researchers using lab animals with existing tumors found that diet high in omega 6 made the “… tumors grow faster, larger and more invasive.”
**Simpopoulos and Robinson, p.6

Another study performed in Los Angeles Veterans Hospital found that the group of men fed a diet high in Omega 6 had a mortality rate twice that of men on traditional diet.
**Pearce and Dayton: The Lancet, 1971, 464-467

Why has this Omega 3 – Omega 6 imbalance occurred?

We can trace our human ancestry back 4 million years. For more than 99% of that time humans were hunters and foragers, which established our dietary balance between Omega 3 and Omega 6 the ideal proportion of 1:1. Many doctors believe that this balance continued until the mid 1800’s when our diet began to fundamentally change. Our present day diets, rich in grains and seeds but poor in marine life, increase the Omega 6 presence in our bodies.
“Omega 3 consumption has decreased to one sixth of the level found in our food supply in the 1850’s. Omega 6 consumption has doubled in that time drastically changing the ration of Omega 3 to Omega 6 in our food supply. This change is reflected in the makeup of our tissue fats and in our health.”
**Dr. Edo Erasmus, FATS that heal, FATS that Kill, 1995 (3rd edition), Alive Books. p. 52

In a recent study, scientists concluded that “… we are now eating 1/10th of the amount of the Omega 3 required for normal functioning. Alarmingly, 20% of the population has levels so low that they defy detection.”
**Dolocek, Grandits, World Rev. Nutr Diet 1991, 66:205-216

On the bottle, it says this product is Harp Seal oil… what does this mean?

The harp seals are harvested (seal hunt) in the spring under a Canadian government quota in a humane manner and follows all the rules for food safety as any other food for human consumption would be. The seal blubber is taken and the rest of the seal is used for other things and Auum has the blessing of the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF).

Currently the seals are in a huge surplus and will never go extinct due to all the good people on top of it. We have many vegetarian and vegan clients that have been using it for years now, and say they will never do without it.

Additional Instructions and Information – Sublingual Products

As per a health care practitioner and not Auum Inc.
There are other ways to take the Auum Omegas and much of this will depend on your lifestyle.
When instructing beyond what is on the bottle, please refer to it as a practitioner’s
recommendation.

First bottle: You may instruct a person or take more seal oil for the first bottle, up to double the recommended dose (same for both capsules and Sub D). This can be very helpful in many cases.

Note: Product does not have to be in fridge but if put in fridge please shake a few times to mix up the three oils. Please note that you can peel away the foil entirely and use a measuring spoon, or you could poke a hole in the foil and squirt directly into mouth. The objective is to use 2 bottles per month for an adult.

Scenario One – Basic
Take product 2-3 times throughout the day.
For example: ½ tsp am, ½ tsp noon and ½ tsp at 5 pm

Scenario Two – Basic 2
Take 1 tsp am and ½ tsp at noon or before 5 pm

Scenario Three – Take daily dose at one time
Take product in the morning if it works best for your lifestyle.
For example:
Take ½ tsp at 7 am – hold for 1 min (or more), 5 mins then later take another ½ tsp – hold for 1 min (or more), and then 5 mins later take the 3rd serving of a ½ tsp – hold for 1 min (or more).
Note: Start time and duration can differ i.e. 5 mins could be 10 mins, 15 mins, etc.

Scenario Four – Athletes
Athletes can consume ¼-½ tsp 30 mins before workout and ¼-½ tsp after workout.
In total, an athlete should be taking 1.5-2 tsp per day for improved performance, recovery time, mental clarity and more.

Scenario Five – Children
For children, there are several different ways, and different amounts to take. It will depend on age and other factors (see page one for age). For children, it is a good idea to tell them why they need to take it…make them run faster for soccer, make school easier, or whatever would fit the child. I had my daughter (3 ½ yrs old at the time) sing a tune while she held the omegas under her tongue. You might find that some children will do what their parents are doing.

Scenario Six – Do not swallow
If a person cannot consume any oils i.e. olive oil, then you instruct them to hold oil under tongue for 4 mins or more, then spit out…rinse mouth afterwards to remove any residue.

Scenario Seven – Not too much
Please note that I have an occasion where the person could only take ½ tsp per day (otherwise too hyper) and still experience great results.

Scenario Eight – Skin conditions
Where skin conditions are present, you can take the excess from spoon and rub directly on a skin area. One lady had dark calluses on knees for a long time and within 3-4 weeks they disappeared.
