Palmitoleic acid is a rich omega-7 supplement isolated from anchovies, with powerful anti-inflammatory properties and benefits for cholesterol.
Palmitoleic acid, commonly known as omega-7, is a rare monounsatured fatty acid, which was generally reported to benefit the skin in promoting epithelialisation, and certain gynaecological problems (vaginal mycoses). Until now, sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides), a shrub widely found in Europe and Asia, and macadamia nuts have been the principal sources.
However, recent advances have enabled it to be isolated from anchovies - a new, exceptionally rich source with a concentration of 50% compared with that of 13%-20% in plant-source equivalents. The discovery was made while scientists were focusing on the overall effects of fatty acids, including the famous long-chain omega-3s, EPA and DHA, on improving cardiovascular function. Researchers at Harvard Medical School, the Cleveland Clinic and universities in Hawaii and Japan found that omega-7 had significant effects on the so-called ‘diseases of civilisation', as a result of which they developed a method for isolating and purifying this precious fatty acid.
Palmitoleic Acid contains Provinal®, a fish extract (from sustainably fished wild anchovies) standardised to 50% palmitoleic acid. It is currently the only ultra-purified, non-GMO, highly concentrated source of omega-7, with levels of antagonist fatty acids such as palmitic acid of less than 1%. It is guaranteed free from PCB residues, dioxins and heavy metals. Research shows that Provinal® acts as an overall metabolism regulator:
Provinal® is currently one of the few nutrients that protects against atherosclerosis, by raising HDL-cholesterol and acting on inflammation markers. In this context, Palmitoleic Acid can be taken on its own or in combination with other nutraceuticals available to buy at Supersmart that promote good cardiovascular health - vitamin K2 necessary for blood coagulation, and EPA and DHA which help maintain blood lipid balance. Each softgel of Palmitoleic Acid provides 210mg of palmitoleic acid. Taken for a minimum of 1 to 2 months, at a dose of 1 to 2 softgels a day with your main meals, this supplement free of side effects acts both curatively and preventively on various diseases and conditions: type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance and atherosclerosis.
