Omega-3 Supreme 1400 mg Wild Alaskan Fish Oil | IFOS + MSC Certified, Improved Absorption Coated 180 Burpless Softgels
Life & Food
The body needs fatty acids to survive and is able to make all but two of them: linoleic acid (LA), in the omega-6 family, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in the omega-3 family. These two fatty acids must be supplied by the diet and are therefore considered essential fatty acids (EFAs).
Omega-3 fatty acids, found in coldwater fish (and fish oil), perilla and flaxseed oils, are essential elements of a healthy diet. Omega-3 oils contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) anddocosahexaenoic acid(DHA), which are usually lacking in the typical Western diet, which is filled with foods containing high amounts of omega-6 fats.30 EPA and DHA can be synthesized in the body from ALA, but EPA and DHA synthesis may be insufficient under certain conditions and for most people that consume Western diets.
Studies associate the Mediterranean diet — rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids such as that found in olive oil, and antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs — with lowered cardiovascular risk and increased life span.33-39 Other studies support omega-3’s importance in cardiovascular health.40-41
Life Extension’s Super Omega-3 is a premium, scientifically-validated fish oil concentrate, derived from sustainable sources, that contains a proprietary, full-spectrum blend of synergistic nutrients to provide scientifically-validated cardioprotective health benefits.
An abundance of scientific research substantiates the wide-ranging health benefits of omega-3fatty acidsin fish oil and monounsaturated fatty acid and polyphe-nols in olive fruit.42-50
No other commercially available fish oil supplement contains this level of essential fatty acids, sesame lignans and olive fruit polyphenols.
Super Omega-3 from Life Extension uses a proprietary EPA/DHA technology that results in a pure, stable and easy-to-tolerate fish oil extract. The Pure+™ fish oil used in Super Omega-3 is produced with a proprietary technology that purifies the oil with a highly advanced distillation process to reduce environmental pollutants to extremely low levels. The result is an improved fish oil that exceeds the standards set by international rating agencies.
The unstable nature of fatty acids like fish oil limits their biological efficacy in the body. Scientific studies show that when sesame lignans are supplemented with fish oil, the beneficial effects are augmented.51
Sesame lignans help guard against lipid peroxidation, thereby extending the stability ofDHA in the body. These lignans also direct fatty acids toward pathways which can help with inflammatory reactions. SuperOmega-3 provides standardized sesame lignans to enhance the overall benefits of the improved EPA/DHA fish oil blend.
To emulate a Mediterranean diet, Super Omega-3 provides a standardized olive fruit extract to deliver the polyphenol hydroxytyrosol, a powerful antioxidant that protects normal LDL from oxidation and counters dangerous free radicals.52-55 Research shows that a combination of olive oil and fish oil supplements helps with inflammation better than a placebo or fish oil alone.56 Therefore, four softgels of Super Omega-3 provide the equivalent polyphenol content of 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
Super Omega-3 provides a high concentration of olive fruit extract standardized forhydroxytyrosol, tyrosol, verbascoside and oleuropein polyphenols. Research shows the value of oleuropein in favorably altering gene expression, delaying senescence in specialized skin cells, and helping maintain normal platelet activation.
Take two enteric coated softgels twice daily with meals, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
I use product 2000 in morning nad 2000 evening. EPA and DHA and olive extract are important for the body. I do not like when there is leakage in the bottle and I burp the fishy taste.
no aftertaste, great bioavailability
I take this along with curcumin, arthromax, and occasionally cumin oil and other supplements to help with inflammation occurring from wearing of knee joint. It is hard to separate the effect from the other supplements. I can't take the non-enteric coated because I get terrible burps, so the enteric coated does the trick. I take it with food.
I have have been dosing this product twice daily for many years now with meals for all its wonderful properties and have successfully switched to the enteric coated to avoid fish burps. Family and friends agree they are experiencing no fish burps either with the enteric coated, but for some, the large size capsules are difficult to swallow. Also appreciate that the daily dose is divided into four capsules for those that want to take less. No side effects noted-take it with my Vitamin K and Vitamin D3 for better absorption of all three.
I try to take the recommended four per day, but sometimes I only end up taking two or three. Before I found the enteric-coated, the regular ones would occasionally give me a mild fish-tasting burps.
This doesn't give you the after taste and ugly gas that the non-entric coated one's do A great improvement !!
We take this product every day at mealtime. We like that Life Extension is very careful to get fish oil that isn't contaminated and have a reallly good way of processing it. It is a bit hard to swallow as it is quite large.
