Metagenics Presents OmegaGenics SPM Active

October 8, 2015

Metagenics, Inc., Aliso Viejo, CA, a nutrigenomics and lifestyle medicine company focused on improving health, has introduced OmegaGenics SPM Active, a first-in-class nutritional supplement with specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs) designed to help support the resolution of the immune response—a natural response to tissue challenges from cellular damage, unhealthy diets and lifestyles. SPM production in the body decreases with age so SPM Active is particularly supportive of healthy aging.
When tissues in the body are challenged, the body reacts by developing a tailored immune response by recruiting cells and clearing cellular debris of affected tissues to help resume normal activity and maintain tissue health. An unresolved immune response may lead to discomfort and unwanted health conditions.

Recent research has led to the discovery that biologic resolution of the immune response is not a passive response, as traditionally believed, but rather an active, naturally-induced process that triggers the body to produce SPMs from the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Through their pro-resolving properties, SPMs play an essential role in tissue health and healthy aging through the resolution of the immune response.
"The discovery of SPMs and the role they play in resolving immune responses and for chronic health concerns relating to healthy aging offers healthcare professionals a new approach to patient care," said John P. Troup, PhD, chief science officer of Metagenics, Inc. "Through advanced technology, we've designed OmegaGenics SPM Active with standardized levels of SPMs found in select fractions of marine oils that complement and support the body's natural ability to resolve an immune response."
