Health Benefits at a Glance:
The health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids are many fold and include support for heart health, brain function, and balancing of the inflammatory response. Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Extract adds sesame lignans and olive extract to the essential fatty acids EPA and DHA from fish oil for enhanced health benefits.
Why it Works:
The health benefits of eating cold-water fish are robust. However, concerns remain about contaminants found in wild and farm-raised fish in public. This ought not to stop consumers from including fish in their diet. The longevity advantages of consuming cold-water fish instead of foods like beef are remarkable.
Omega-3 derived from fish oil supports heart health, brain function, and helps to balance the inflammatory response. There is no debating the broad-spectrum benefits of omega-3 fatty acids [1-3].
There are literally hundreds of fish oil supplements on the market. Only the formula in Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Extract product incorporates omega-3, olive fruit extract, sesame lignans to enhance the health benefits of the Omega-3 fatty acids. Four enteric-coated softgels supply the polyphenol content equivalent to that of 8 to 12 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Research indicates that a combination of fish oil and olive oil can support a healthy inflammatory response better than fish oil alone.
The fish oil in this formula is made from sustainably-sourced anchovy from the South Pacific coast of Chile. The fish oil is distilled to eliminate synthetic and natural contaminants. This formula provides the same high potency of omega-3 fatty acids as our regular sized Super Omega-3 in smaller capsules for easier swallowing.
The Science Behind the Product:
High-quality fish oil is distilled to eliminate synthetic and natural contaminants that are present in the fish itself. The enhanced molecular distillation method utilizes redundant processes to gently remove detectable environmental toxins.
Current oxidation standards assure that quality fish oil products have reduced rancidity. But because this product uses a special Alaskan-derived fish oil blend, it reduces oxidation levels more than five-fold compared to the upper-level oxidation limit. Research findings show that fish oil combined with olive oil can promote a healthy inflammatory response, better than fish oil can on its own .
The role of sesame lignans is to augment the benefits of fish oil by several mechanisms such as guarding the unsaturated fatty acids in the body against oxidation and directing them towards pathways that help with inflammatory reactions .
