Life Extension Super Omega 3 is a high quality supplement supplying unsaturated fatty acids DHA and EPA. The composition of the product has been enriched with the addition of lignans from sesame seeds and olive extract. Both of these substances enhance the effectiveness of omega 3 acids in the body.
Health benefits in a nutshell:
For over 30 years, Life Extension has been at the forefront of Omega-3 supplements because for the first time we have noticed that Omega-3 can support heart health. Our Omega-3 EPA / DHA from Sesame Lignans & Olive Extract contains Omega-3 oil that can support the cardiovascular system, cognitive health and a healthy response to inflammation.
Why it works:
Omega-3 EPA / DHA with the addition of Sesame Lignans and olive oil AlaskOmega® is pure, fresh fish oil produced from a balanced Alaska Pollock variety. The fish oil used in this product has obtained the highest international rating according to International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS ™) standards and comes from a Marine Aquarium certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), meaning that it actually exceeds industry standards.
Studies show that the Mediterranean diet is rich in omega-3 fatty acids and is considered one of the healthiest diets in the world. Many scientific studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil have broad health benefits.
The Super Omega-3 formula provides an extract with a high content of olive oil, which can provide as much polyphenols as can be found in 8-12 tablespoons of virgin olive oil. Oleuropein found in olive oil can have a positive effect on gene expression, can promote cell retardation in specialized skin cells, and help maintain normal thrombocyte activity. In addition, Super Omega-3 provides standard sesame lignans to increase the stability of essential DHA in your body.
Scientific basis of the product:
Researchers have found that omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil and monounsaturated fatty acids and polyphenols in olive oil are associated with great health benefits. The researchers also reported that Omega-3 plays a role in the health of the cardiovascular system. Super Omega-3 contains a standardized extract of olive oil, with polyphenol hydroxytyrol, a powerful antioxidant that can protect low-density lipoproteins (LDL) from oxidation and free radicals. LDL transfers cholesterol from the liver to the cells that require it.
About 8% of the brain consists of omega-3 fatty acids. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) found in fish oils play a fundamental role in the structure and function of neurons. They protect them from oxidative damage, inflammation and cumulative destruction caused by other chronic factors.
The researchers also reported that combining olive fruit with fish oil supplements may support an inflammatory response compared to placebo alone or fish oil.
