The health benefits of eating cold-water fish are robust, yet concerns remain about contaminants found in wild and farm-raised fish. This should not stop consumers from including fish in their diet, as the longevity advantages of consuming cold-water fish instead of foods like beef are substantial. A recent study found that even vegetarians that include some fish in their diet fare better than strict vegetarians.1
Eliminate Virtually All Fish-Derived Toxins
The other safety concern about fish oil is that its delicate omega-3 fats are highly vulnerable to rancidity. No one wants to ingest oxidized (rancid) oils.
A new fish oil blend derived from pristine waters off the coast of Alaska utilizes a multistep process to remain exceptionally fresh. The result is that this Alaskan-derived fish oil has a greater than five-fold reduction in the upper level threshold measurement for oxidation.
Current oxidation standards for quality fish oils ensure products free from rancidity. The new Alaskan-derived fish oil specification advances this premium standard five-fold better.
The chart below reveals the reduction in upper limit for oxidation of this new Alaskan fish oil blend over existing quality fish oils:
|Alaskan-Derived Specification||Current High-Quality Specification|
|TOTOX (total oxidation value)
(Lower means less oxidation)
|Maximum: 5||Maximum: 26|
(Measure of current oxidation)
|Maximum: 1.0 meq/kg||Maximum: 5.0 meq/kg|
(Measure of past oxidation and measure of aldehyde production during handling and storage)
|Maximum: 5||Maximum: 20|
International Fish Oil Association Five-Star Rating
Alaskan-derived fish oil enjoys the same Five-Star Rating mandated for all fish oils contained in the Super Omega-3 family of supplements.
The Marine Stewardship Council is an independent nonprofit organization that sets a standard for sustainable fishing so that that fishing can continue indefinitely with minimal environmental impact. 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.
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 and olive fruit extracts, along with sesame lignans, in a family of formulas called Super Omega-3.
Fish Oil + Olive Fruit Extract = Greater Efficacy
Each serving (2 softgels) provides a similar olive polyphenol level as over 4 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil. This assumes 318 mg/kg of olive polyphenol in extra-virgin olive oil as reported for Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Please note other components in olive oil include monounsaturated fat, tocopherols, and phytosterols. Ingestion of olive oil may provide additional benefits beyond olive polyphenols.
Sesame Lignans Enhance Fish Oil Efficacy
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 greater digestive ease.
