Omega P3 – Premium Omega 3 supplement
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for cells to respond to neurotransmitters.
Many Americans are deficient in the long chain fatty acids, EPA and DHA, that support a healthy response to inflammation. Fish oil is the best source of long chain omega-3 fatty acids that are good for the heart and brain as well as for moderating pain.
The highly purified fish oil in Omega P3 is high in EPA/DHA, meaning it is potent. It is low in mercury, dioxin and toxins, making it pure. And, it is palatable because it is free of other fats and has a lemon flavor.
Omega P3 – Frequently Asked Questions
Why take a fish oil supplement?
Because it is the best source of long chain omega-3 fatty EPA (eicosapentaenoic) acid and DHA (docosahexaenoic) acid. These are the forms that have physiologic activity that support heart and brain health as well as reduce inflammation.
Can’t I just eat a healthy diet of vegetables and fish?
It is almost impossible to consume enough fish to gain the benefits attainable from a pure and potent supplement. The safest fish, and the ones with the greatest source of omega-’s, are sardines, herring, and anchovies. The American diet has changed over the last century towards vegetable oils which are rich in omega-6 fatty acids and low in omega-3s. This imbalance leads to more inflammatory chronic diseases and is not protective against heart disease, cancer, and dementia.
Can I just take flaxseed oil instead?
Flaxseed oil is an 18 carbon omega-3, containing ALA, which must be converted to the 20-carbon EPA and 22-carbon DHA, the beneficial omega-3s. The body is inefficient in transforming the oil in flaxseed to the biologically active EPA and DHA.
What claims does the FDA allow for fish oil?
The FDA allows a limited claim that fish oil it is beneficial for maintaining a healthy heart.
Why Omega P3?
There are many fish oil products available over-the-counter. Most are commodities containing the natural 180 mg of EPA and 120 mg of DHA. These products contain many other fatty acids that are not helpful and that contribute to the common complaints of stomach upset from fish oil. Omega P3 is a highly refined product. We concentrate EPA and DHA to a much higher level (400mg EPA/300mg DHA), eliminate mercury and other toxins, and add antioxidants and lemon flavor to make the capsule more palatable.
How does fish oil benefit heart health?
Fish oil can reduce triglycerides, lower blood pressure, slow heart rate and stabilize the cell membrane to reduce abnormal rhythms known as arrhythmias. In addition, fish oil exerts an antiplatelet effect, making it less likely that undesirable, unwanted clots will form. Some studies have shown marked benefits in reducing sudden death, leading the Harvard School of Public Heath to argue that omega-3 deficiency may contribute to as many as 90,000 unnecessary deaths a year.
Why is it called Omega P3?
The P3 stands for potent, pure, and palatable. Omega P3 is a pharmaceutical grade highly purified fish oil, high in EPA/DHA (potent). It is low in mercury, dioxin and toxins, and free of other fats (pure), and it has a pleasant lemon flavor (palatable).
What are other benefits of fish oil?
Omega-3 fatty acids work synergistically to reduce inflammation, thereby alleviating pain, helping relaxation and sleep, as well as just making people happier and better able to enjoy life. Omega-3 fatty acids support these functions by improving the structure and response of every cell in the body to neurotransmitters.
