Give Your Body the Omega Fatty Acids it Needs With Life Extension Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA With Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract
Your body needs fatty acids to survive and remain healthy. Fortunately, your body is able to produce all fatty acids on its own except two: linoleic acid (LA), in the omega-6 family, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in the omega-3 family. These two fatty acids must be obtained through either diet or supplementation; therefore, they are considered essential fatty acids or EFAs.
Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in sources like fish or fish oil, perilla and flaxseed oils. These food sources are vital elements to a healthy balanced diet. Omega-3 oils contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are typically insufficient in the typical American diet. EPA and DHA can be obtained in your body from ALA, but EPA and DHA synthesis may be insufficient under certain conditions and for most people that consume the typical American diet.
Studies have found that the Mediterranean diet, which is typically rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids, and antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs. This diet has shown to have lower incidents of cardiovascular problems and an increased life span. Other studies show the importance of omega-3’s for cardiovascular health.
Life Extension’s Super Omega-3 is a high quality, scientifically proven fish oil concentrate which is extracted from sustainable sources, that contains a proprietary, full-spectrum blend of synergistic nutrients to provide scientifically validated cardiovascular health benefits.
There is many decades of scientific research which suggests the many health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil and monounsaturated fatty acid and polyphenols found in olive fruit.
Life Extension Super Omega-3 contains the highest levels of fish oil essential fatty acids compared to all the other omega-3 fish oil supplements on the market, along with sesame lignans and olive fruit polyphenols.
Life Extension Super Omega-3 uses a proprietary EPA/DHA technology that yields a pure, stable and easy-to-take fish oil extract. The Pure+™ fish oil used in Life Extension Super Omega-3 is produced with a proprietary technology that purifies the fish oil with a highly advanced distillation process to ensure very low levels of environmental pollutants. The gives you an improved fish oil that exceeds the standards set by international rating agencies.
Fatty acids such as fish oil are naturally unstable which limits their efficiency in your body. Scientific research has shown that when sesame lignans are taken along with fish oil, the beneficial effects are improved.
Sesame lignans help your body protect itself against lipid peroxidation, which in turn can extend the stability of DHA in your body. These lignans also steer fatty acids towards pathways which can help with inflammatory reactions. Super Omega-3 provides standardized sesame lignans to improve the overall effectiveness of the improved EPA/DHA fish oil blend.
Life Extension Super Omega-3 gives you a high concentration of olive fruit extract which is standardized for hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol, verbascoside and oleuropein polyphenols. Scientific research has shown the role of oleuropein in favorably altering gene expression, delaying senescence in specialized skin cells, and helping maintain normal platelet activation.
To mirror the Mediterranean diet, Life Extension Super Omega-3 provides you with a standardized olive fruit extract which delivers 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. Therefore, four softgels of Super Omega-3 provide the equivalent polyphenol content of 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
For individuals that have sensitive stomachs or who experience burping from regular fish oils, Super Omega-3 is also available enterically coated, so the softgel is not degraded in the stomach ... but broken down and released in the small intestine.
