EPA and DHA fatty acids from fish oil support cardiovascular health, brain health, and much more. Inspired by the Mediterranean diet, our Super Omega-3 delivers the EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids your body needs, plus potent olive polyphenols and sesame lignans for additional cardiovascular, cognitive, and whole-body health benefits.
FROM WHICH IT'S FORMULATED
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) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are usually lacking in the typical Western diet, which is filled with foods containing high amounts of omega-6 fats.
ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS TO SURVIVE
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).
An abundance of scientific research substantiates the wide-ranging health benefits, including promoting a healthy heart, of omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil and monounsaturated fatty acids-polyphenols in olive fruit. 1-9Super Omega-3 from Life Extension uses a patented EPA/DHA extraction process that results in a pure, stable, and easy-to-tolerate fish oil extract. While most fish oil is distilled to decrease contaminants such as mercury and PCBs, the Pure + fish oil used in Super Omega-3 is produced with a patented method that purifies the oil with a highly advanced distillation process to reduce pollutants to virtually undetectable levels.
The result is improved fish oil that exceeds the standards set by international rating agencies. Sesame Lignans Enhance Fish Oils In Vivo Effects. The unstable nature of fatty acids like fish oil limits their biological efficacy in the body. Studies show that when sesame lignans are supplemented with fish oil, the beneficial effects are augmented. 10Sesame lignans help guard against lipid peroxidation, thereby extending the stability of DHA in the body.
These lignans also direct fatty acids toward pathways that can help with inflammatory reactions. Super Omega-3 provides standardized sesame lignans to enhance the overall benefits of the improved EPA/DHA fish oil blend. New Higher Potency Standardized Olive Fruit 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.
Research shows that a combination of olive oil and fish oil supplements helps with inflammation better than a placebo or fish oil alone.15 Therefore, Super Omega-3 provides the equivalent polyphenol content of 6 ounces of extra virgin olive oil. Super Omega-3 provides a new, higher concentration olive fruit extract standardized for hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol, and oleuropein polyphenols.
