More facts about Super Omega-3
The Mediterranean diet, in which extra virgin olive oil and seafood are staples, is associated with heart health and an increased life span. This healthy diet inspired Life Extension to combine a pure, highly concentrated fish oil with sesame lignans and unique polyphenols from the olive extract.
Other benefits of fish oil omega-3s
Omega-3 fatty acids support healthy blood vessel function, which promotes blood flow and helps maintain blood pressure already in the normal range, while also inhibiting inflammatory factors. These essential fats also help maintain healthy LDL and HDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels that are already within the normal range. Omega-3s promote healthy cognitive function and mood. All of these benefits support heart health and encourage longevity.
IFOS™ 5-star-rated formula
Life Extension makes Super Omega-3 using Pure+™, a wild fish oil concentrate made from cold-water Alaska pollock caught from a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified-sustainable fishery and processed in the United States within hours of harvest for exceptional freshness. Their Super Omega-3 formula has earned the highest, 5-star rating from IFOS™ — an independent organisation that sets the standard for fish oil purity, potency, and freshness.
Polyphen-Oil™ olive extract
All of their Super Omega-3 formulas contain Polyphen-Oil™ olive extract. It’s concentrated and standardised to provide olive’s unique, health-promoting polyphenols. Polyphen-Oil™ delivers the polyphenol equivalent of just over 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
These polyphenols favourably affect gene expression, helping to maintain healthy platelet activation, help inhibit LDL oxidation and help counter free radicals.
Sesame lignans and natural lemon flavor
They have also added sesame lignans to the Super Omega-3 formula to enhance the health benefits of fish oil. They’ve even added a natural lemon flavour to the formulation, in order to avoid the fishy aftertaste some people experience when taking omega-3 supplements.
