What Does Marvalous Salvia Sclarea Oil Contain Besides Omega 3?

Marvalous Omega 3 is actually Salvia Sclarea (Clary Sage) oil.
Salvia Sclarea oil is a natural vegetable oil formula (cold pressed from the seeds of the Salvia Sclarea plant) which contains a unique and rare combination of active ingredients.  The presence of those ingredients suggest that the oil may provide an Anti-bacterial, Anti-oxidant Antiseptic, Antiviral, Anti-mutagenic, Anti - inflammation, Antifungal and Astringent qualities.
One of those ingredients is Sclareol; Sclareol is a rare substance which used to be produced from whales.
Sclareol has many unique medical properties and its presence in the Salvia Sclarea oil differentiates the oil from any known vegetable oil today.

Here is a picture of the Salvia Sclarea (Clary Sage) plant:

 Salvia Sclarea oil contains:

Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) 
Omega-3 fatty acids are PUFA required for the structure and function of the body's cells and are important in maintaining our health.Salvia Sclarea Oil contain 50% Omega 3 ALA

Oleic Acid Omega 9 
Oleic acid may hinder the progression of ALD, or Adrenoleukodystrophy, a fatal disease that affects the Brain and adrenal glands.
Oleic acid may help boost memory.
 Oleic acid may be responsible for the hypotensive (Blood pressure reducing) effects of olive oil.
Salvia Sclarea Oil contains 25% Omega 9

Lectin Derived from Salvia Sclarea Seeds

The lectin extracted from the seeds of Salvia sclarea (SSL) recognizes the Tn antigen (GalNAc alpha1-->Ser/Thr) expressed in certain human carcinomas. (J Biomed Sci. 2005;12(1):167-84. LinksLectinochemical studies on the glyco-recognition factors of a Tn (GalNAcalpha1-->Ser/Thr)
specific lectin isolated from the seeds of Salvia sclarea)

Tannic Acid
Tannic acid has Anti-bacterial, Anti-oxidant Antiseptic, Antiviral, Antimutagenic and Astringent properties (The effects of resveratrol and tannic acid on apoptosis in colon adenocarcinoma cell line.  Department
of Medical Biology, Eskisehir Osmangazi University, Medical Faculty, Eskisehir, Turkey).

Sclareol has Antioxidant, Antibacterial and Antifungal properties.
Sclareol posseses cyto-toxic and cyto-static activity:  Induced Apoptosis in human leukemic cells.
 Sclareol enhanced the activity of known Anticancer Drugs, doxorubicin, etoposide and cisplatinum, against MDD2 breast cancer cell line.
Sclareol demonstrated a good Antibacterial activity against:
•• Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923,
•• Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27950,
•• Escherichia coli ATCC 25922
•• Enterococcus faecalis ATCC 29212.
•• Sclareol demonstrated significant cytotoxic activity against Hep-2 cells.
(J Pharm Sci. 2007 Apr;20(2):146-8. Links)
•• Antibacterial and cytotoxic activity of the acetone extract of the flowers of Salvia Sclarea and some natural products

Linalool and Linanyl Acetate
Found to be effective as Anti - inflammation, Antibacterial, Antifungal. Behaves as synergistic and strengthening other bioactive materials.
(Anti-inflammatory activity of linalool and linalyl acetate constituents of essential oils Dipartimento di Scienze del Farmaco, Università degli Studi di Sassari, Sassari, Italy)

Has been proven as platelet aggregation inhibitor and effective Antimicrobial with:
Staphylococcus Aureus, Candida Albicans and Proteus mirabilis (Synthesis of manool-related labdane diterpenes as platelet aggregation inhibitors Shionogi Research Laboratories, Shionogi & Co., Ltd., Osaka, Japan), (Transformations of manool. tri- and tetracyclic norditerpenoids with in vitro activity against
Plasmodium falciparum Department of Chemistry, Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa).

Caryophyllene oxide 
Caryophyllene oxide, an oxygenated terpenoid, well known as preservative in food, drugs and cosmetics, Found to be effective as an Antifungal against dermatophytes (Use of caryophyllene oxide as an antifungal agent in an in vitro experimental model of onychomycosis Authors: Yang, Depo1; Michel, Laura1; Chaumont, Jean-Pierre2; Millet-Clerc, Joëlle1).

Plant sterols reduce the uptake of cholesterol into the body.
The cholesterol that is not absorbed or taken up is removed from the body.  As a result blood total and bad (LDL) cholesterol decrease, while good (HDL) cholesterol is not affected. (Extensive research shows that functional foods fortified with plant sterols and plant sterol supplements, can effectively reduce cholesterol up to 15% (Katan MB et al. 2003, Mayo Clin Proc. 2003 Aug;78(8):965-78. Review).

These are the Sterols present in Salvia Sclarea oil:
•• Campestanol
•• Stigmasterol D-7-Campesterol
•• D-5, 23-Stigmastadienol
•• Chlerosterol
•• B-Sitosterol
•• Sitostanol
•• D-5-Avenasterol
•• D-5,24-Stigmastadienol
•• D-7-Stigmastenol
•• D-7-Avenasterol

Tocopherols (Vitamin E)
  •  Vitamin E may help prevent or delay coronary heart disease by limiting
  • the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol.
    •• Vitamin E also may help prevent the formation of blood clots, which could lead to a heart attack.
    •• Observational studies have associated lower rates of heart disease with higher vitamin E intake.

Tocopherols in Salvia Sclarea oil:
Tocopherols occur in Salvia Sclarea are Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta forms,
determined by the number of methyl groups on the chromanol ring of all of them.

Coenzyme Q10
Coenzyme Q10, also referred to as Co Q10 is a vitamin-like compound  which is present in all cells.
Q10 has several different actions in the body. Its most notable effects are:
•• Antioxidant - it scavenges free radicals
•• Improves the efficiency of cellular energy production in the mitochondria of the cell
•• Regulates genes concerned with energy production
•• Stabilizes membranes

Marvalous Omega 3 for Parkinsons

Marvalous Omega 3 helps all kinds of autoimmune diseases.  This includes Multiple Schlerosis, Crohn's Colitis and Parkinsons.

There is a famous radio announcer here in Israel who has Parkinsons.  He had to stop working because his voice was shaking too much and he couldn't climb the stairs at the radio station where he worked.  A friend of his recommended trying Marvalous Omega 3 and he started to take it.  He was probably taking 4-6 capsules of 500 milligrams a day.  Within a couple of months he got his voice back and is now able to climb stairs again!

This perhaps may be attributed to the presence of Vitamin E in the Salvia Sclarea oil which is in the capsules.  The seeds of the Salvia Sclarea plant contain 50% vegetarian omega 3 (ALA) and the other 50% is comprised of another 120 ingredients including CoQ10, vegetable sterols, Vitamin E, Manool, Tannic Acid, Linalool etc.  These ingredients greatly enhance the functionality of the Omega 3.  So, it's not just Omega 3 that we are getting when we take the capsules.  This probably explains why Marvalous Omega 3 from Salvia Sclarea oil is so effective at helping many different types of ailments.
