Omega Mate Fact Sheet
Studies clearly associate the Mediterranean diet, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, with lowered cardiovascular risk and increased life span. Both the omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids belong to a group of polyunsaturated fats called 'essential' because they are necessary to life and to health, but we cannot make them in the body - they must be obtained from diet.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are omega-3 fatty acids found primarily in oily fish, such as anchovies, sardines, salmon, mackerel and tuna. These fatty acids are recognized for their benefits to human health. Fish oil is now widely used to treat high triglycerides, cholestrol, heart disease and high blood pressure.
We have developed a natural extract of deep sea cold water fish (marine lipids) with the ideal balance of EPA and DHA (2:1) and vitamin E for stability and enhanced availability. In addition, we use a process of molecular distillation, where any existing toxins are separated from the fish oil by weight and the toxins are discarded. This makes our formula uniquely effective and safe, containing no detectable levels of mercury, arsenic, lead, cadmium, and other toxic metals according to the International Fish Oil Standards.
The evidence surrounding the important role of Omega-3 fatty acids in the support of cardiac cells is growing to the point that the federal government recently approved a qualified health claim stating that 'supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.'
In addition to their cardio-protective benefits, omega-3 fatty acids also play an important structural role in maintaining healthy cellular membranes, healthy joint function, and a healthy immune system. DHA may also help cognitive and vision function since the human brain and retina are comprised of high concentrations of DHA. However there are problems with many fish oils sold on the world market today:
- Most of them are low in DHA
- Most of them are not concentrated
- Most of them are not molecularly distilled to ensure that all contaminants are removed.
- Most of them use a mixture of all types of fish oil from around the world which may have become rancid.
