From supporting heart health and brain function to balancing the inflammatory response, there is no debating the broad-spectrum benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. While the health advantages of eating cold-water fish are robust, concerns remain about contaminants found in wild and farm-raised fish. This should however not stop consumers from including fish in their diet.
Eliminate Virtually All Fish-Derived Toxins
Consumers can exercise significant control over their exposure to fish-borne toxins. High-quality fish oil is molecularly distilled to virtually eliminate environmental toxins and natural contaminants that existed in the fish itself.
Another safety concern about fish oil is that its delicate omega-3 fats are highly vulnerable to oxidation and rancidity.
A new fish oil blend derived from pristine waters off the coast of Alaska utilizes a multistep process to remain exceptionally fresh. While current oxidation standards for quality fish oils already ensure products free from rancidity, the new Alaskan-derived fish oil specification advances this premium standard five-fold better.
IFOS Five-Star Rating
Alaskan-derived fish oil enjoys a Five-Star Rating of the International Fish Oil Standards Program (IFOS), an independent organization that tests fish oils to determine their overall quality and safety. A Five-Star Rating indicates fish oils have been tested to meet strict standards of quality and for purity to rule out contamination with heavy metals, oxidation, radiation, and organic pollutants such as dioxin and PCBs.
The new Alaskan-derived fish oil is the first refined omega-3 concentrate available worldwide that is sourced from a sustainability fishery certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, an independent nonprofit organization that sets a standard for sustainable fishing.
Most Advanced Omega-3 Dietary Supplement
There are hundreds of fish oil supplements on the market. Only one incorporates lifesaving findings to provide omega-3 along with olive fruit extract and sesame lignans. The higher EPA and DHA concentration of the new Alaskan-derived fish oil enables the advanced nutrient blend of Super Omega-3 to fit now into slightly smaller capsules for easier swallowing.
Synergistic Nutrients for Greater Efficacy
Research indicates that a combination of fish oil and olive oil can support a healthy inflammatory response better than fish oil alone. Super Omega-3 supplies the equivalent polyphenol content of 8 to 12 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
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.
For those with a sensitive stomach who still want to obtain the benefits of fish oil, Life Extension offers this formula with an enteric-coating for even greater digestive ease.
