    Choose the most comprehensive fish oil supplement available

    The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are essential elements of a healthy diet. But the typical Western diet, which contains high amounts of omega-6 fats, is usually insufficient in beneficial omega-3s like eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).1 Therefore, supplementing with healthy omega-3s is a great way to support heart health and more.

    Pure, fresh, sustainable, and made in the USA

    There are many fish oil supplements out there … but very few utilize a sustainably harvested fish oil made from cold-water Alaska Pollock that is both caught andprocessed in the United States within hours of harvest for exceptional freshness. The fish oil in our Super Omega-3 formula has earned the International Fish Oil Standards’ (IFOS™) highest 5-star rating, and comes from a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified-sustainable fishery. Which means it actually exceeds industry standards. Do you know where your fish oil comes from?

    Olive Oil and Omega-3s — staples of the Mediterranean diet

    Studies indicate that the Mediterranean diet — rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids (like those found in olive oil), and antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs — is associated with cardiovascular health and increased life span.2-10

    Other studies support omega-3’s importance in cardiovascular health,11-13and an abundance of scientific research substantiates the wide-ranging health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil and the monounsaturated fatty acids and polyphenols in olive fruit.14-22

    Super Omega-3 provides a standardized olive fruit extract packed with the polyphenol hydroxytyrosol, a powerful antioxidant that protects normal LDL from oxidation and counters free radicals.23-27

    Plus, research shows that a combination of olive oil and fish oil supplements promotes a healthy inflammatory response better than a placebo or fish oil alone.28

    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, squalene, tocopherols, and phytosterols. Ingestion of olive oil may provide additional benefits beyond olive polyphenols.

    Sesame lignans preserve fish oil’s purity and potency

    The unstable nature of the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil limits their effectiveness. Super Omega-3 provides standardized sesame lignans to enhance the stability of DHA levels in your body and the overall benefits of the improved EPA/DHA fish oil.30,31

    No other fish oil supplement contains this level of pure, potent, and sustainably sourced omega-3 fatty acids, sesame lignans, or heart-healthy olive fruit polyphenols. With a natural lemon flavor added to improve taste and palatability, Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Extract is the most comprehensive omega-3 supplement you can buy!

    Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
