NUTRITECK OMEGA-3 Fish Oil

45% EPA - 25% DHA

Natural Biological Alternatives



OMEGA 3 PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE FISH OIL  45% EPA - 25% DHA and natural Vitamin E d-alpha-tocopherols (10 IU).

The best source of omega-3 fatty acid, (EPA) and (DHA) is made from species such as cod, tuna, anchovy and sardines. These oils are low in saturated fat and contain more Omega 3 than many servings of the fish's meat..

Fish oil is very rich in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and ei-cosapentaenoic acid (EPA). These essential fatty acids are stored in the cell membranes of tissues, and have two primary functions. First they are structural components of cell membranes where they ensure fluidity, stability, and act as gatekeepers in the cells.

Secondly they ensure the production of prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that regulate many of the body functions, including heart rate, blood pressure, blood clotting, fertility and conception.

Prostaglandins also play a role in regulating inflammation, which is a major characteristic of many immune disorders. Prostaglandins both encourage the body to fight infection and prevent the inflammatory response from getting out of control.

Nutrasource Diagnostics Inc., located in the University of Guelph Research Park, has verified this source under the strict International Fish Oil Standards Program and found the source to contain low levels of heavy metals, PCB's, and Di-oxins, based on the standards set by the Council For Responsible Nutrition and the World Health Organization.

Molecular Distillation removes toxins from highly sensitive fish oil. Fish oils that undergoes this process are clean and toxin-free , which makes it safe for human consumption.

Our fish oils are only from wild fish and conform to the CRN's Voluntary monograph.

Health Benefits

A lack of EFAs in the diet can lead to deficiency side effects such as reproductive shut-down, poor skin health, and liver or kidney disorders. Additionally, malnutrition may develop as EFAs are necessary for the proper break down of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Omega-3 fatty acids in particular are absolutely vital for proper brain, eye and heart health.

Aside from maintaining good health, omega-3 fatty acids in particular offer other health benefits. Omega-3’s have been found to have an anti-inflammatory effect, and may help those suffering from inflammatory diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and other autoimmune disorders. Additionally, these fatty acids may help ward off mental disorders such as depression by supporting the brain, which is largely composed of fatty tissue. Studies are underway to investigate possible cancer fighting properties of omega-3 fatty acids.

Usage Indications

Typical American diets are usually lacking in omega-3 fatty acids and over abundant in omega-6 fatty acids (often found in packaged and processed foods). The optimal ratio of these nutrients is 1 to 5, respectively.

Good sources of omega-6’s: vegetable oils such as corn, sesame, soybean and sunflower, seeds, nuts, grains and leafy green vegetables.

Good sources of omega-3’s: oils such as flaxseed, soybean, walnut, or canola, and liquid or soft margarine made from these oils, and coldwater fish (mackerel, salmon, tuna, etc.).

FDA Announces Qualified Health Claims for Omega-3 Fatty Acids

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the availability of a qualified health claim for reduced risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) on conventional foods that contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 fatty acids.

Typically, EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids are contained in oily fish, such as salmon, lake trout, tuna and herring. These fatty acids are not essential to the diet; however, scientific evidence indicates that these fatty acids may be beneficial in reducing CHD.

"Coronary heart disease is a significant health problem that causes 500,000 deaths annually in the United States," said Dr. Lester M. Crawford, Acting FDA Commissioner. "This new qualified health claim for omega-3 fatty acids should help consumers as they work to improve their health by identifying foods that contain these important compounds."

A qualified health claim on a conventional food must be supported by credible scientific evidence. Based on a systematic evaluation of the available scientific data, as outlined in FDA's "Interim Procedures for Qualified Health Claims in the Labeling of Conventional Human Food and Human Dietary Supplements", FDA is announcing a qualified health claim for EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. While this research is not conclusive, the FDA intends to exercise its enforcement discretion with respect to the following qualified health claim:

"Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of [name of food] provides [x] grams of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. [See nutrition information for total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol content.]

In 2000, FDA announced a similar qualified health claim for dietary supplements containing EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids and the reduced risk of CHD. FDA recommends that consumers not exceed more than a total of 3 grams per day of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids, with no more than 2 grams per day from a dietary supplement.

The EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acid qualified health claim is the second qualified health claim that FDA has announced for conventional food. For additional information about QHC visit: http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/lab-qhc.html.
