About Omegagenics SPM Active

Omegagenics SPM is a nutritional formula that has been developed with fish oil-derived standardized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs). The product is designed using advanced fractionation technology. It aims to support the body’s natural ability to not only respond to physical stress but also resolve any situation that has led to inflammation, due to unhealthy lifestyle, injury or another reason.

How Omegagenics SPM Active Works

The primary ingredient in the formula is SPMs, which are produced from the body part that suffers from inflammation from whatever cause. SPMs act as chemical messengers in the immune system to help resolve the inflammation - a typical response to injury or infection. The body has the capacity to produce SPMs by using DHA, EPA, and other omega-3 fatty acids. However, the process involves several enzymatic steps that can be affected by factors such as poor diet, aging, and various medical conditions. It should be noted that these factors are also found to cause inflammation, as well. In short, the body is often unable to generate SPMs from these fatty acids. In this case, supplementing with SPMs is required to help give the body the boost it needs to restore health and support the affected tissues effectively. This is when Omegagenics SPM comes into play, encouraging tissue health and supporting the resolution-related activities of the healthy immune cells.

SPMs vs. Omega-3 Fatty Acids: What is the Difference?

After a series of mechanisms that address the initial (acute) phase of inflammation, the resolution phase must be encouraged so that the inflammatory condition ends eventually. In most cases, fish oil is preferred for its potent anti-inflammatory qualities. Indeed, the substances that derive from fish oil compounds promote the resolution stage of inflammation. The problem is that the body needs much higher doses of these substances than what is provided to it via fish oil capsules or concentrated fish oil. According to research, the fish oil we consume should be around 100 times more concentrated to deliver its health-promoting qualities in cases of inflammation. Nevertheless, patients that were given Omegagenics SPM Active have shown remarkable outcomes when it comes to fighting inflammatory conditions effectively and within a short time frame.

In detail, when the body is called to deal with inflammation, the immune system kicks in and sends white blood cells to the damaged area to help restore the site. However, for the body to return to normal, these white blood cells need to be removed from the affected area (during the resolution phase). At the same time, the white blood cells that are on their way to the inflamed area must be stopped so that they do not continue the inflammation and cause additional tissue damage. Research has evidenced that SPMs act as regulators, in this case, removing dead white blood cells and blocking their excessive infiltration.

What makes SPMs a better solution to combat inflammation that omega-3 fatty acids? In the resolution phase, omega-3 fatty acids can biosynthesize SPMs. However, they do not have the qualities of SPMs. Part of these attributes is the pro-resolution activity of SPMs, which is different from having anti-inflammatory properties. This is because, sometimes, the body is unable to return to normal and enable the healing of the inflamed tissues.

Therefore, specific activities at the initiation phase must take place so that we can get to the resolution stage and prevent fibrosis – a condition that can hinder the normal function of the affected organ/area. SPMs do exactly that – they push an inflammatory response to progress to resolution stage, which is something omega-3 fatty acids do not do.

Omegagenics SPM Active Ingredients
