Why so much interest in fish oils?
Cold water fish oils contain long-chain, polyunsaturated fatty acids of
the Omega-3 type, that have considerable beneficial effects on the human
body. Many clinical studies have shown their preventive and protective
effects against heart ailments. Recent research has
shown the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids in helping alleviate
inflammatory ailments and also in increasing the function of the brain (mood
and other similar states). The main Omega-3 fatty acids
responsible for these benefits are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic
acid). EPA can be either converted into natural anti-inflammatory
molecules, into DHA or can also integrate itself into cell membranes.
DHA can also modify cell membranes and therefore enhance their function.
There is an extremely high concentration of DHA in brain cells. Contrary
to popular belief, the vegetable Omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic
acid (ALA), is practically not converted into EPA and DHA and does not
have the same health attributes as those found in Omega-3's from marine
Normally we find in marine fish the lipids required for our needs in
long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids of the Omega-3 type, but
unfortunately we are being faced with this serious environmental problem
where these fish show different degrees of contamination from heavy
metals and pesticides. Eating those fishes is therefore problematic and
represents a certain risk to the consumer's health. That is why
taking a high-quality supplement of marine Omega-3 fatty acids is
strongly recommended as a source of Omega-3's to meet nutritional needs.
Oxidation of polyunsaturated fatty acids is probably one of
the most under-estimated problems related taking fish oils.
Indeed, once fatty acids become oxidized, they turn into harmful
molecules that trigger different ailments in the body (for example,
cardio-vascular diseases). As a solution, some companies add synthetic
antioxidants (BHT, BHA, ascorbyl palmitate, etc.) to their formula.
However, it is suspected that some of these synthetic antioxidants have
carcinogenic effects. Other companies will add Vitamin E, however if
Vitamin E isn't in the presence of a more powerful antioxidant that can
protect it, it can oxidize and transform into a harmful agent that will
cause the Omega-3 fatty acids to oxidize also.
Ocean+ Omega3 :
HIGH CONTENT OF EPA AND DHA WITH THE ANTIOXIDANT NOXVP FORMULA.
The wild fish oils used in Ocean+ Omega3,
delivering a high EPA (350 mg) and DHA (250 mg) content for a total of
600 mg per capsule, are protected in 3 different ways by adding
phosphatidylcholine, astaxanthin and Vitamin E.
Phosphatidylcholine (30mg) : the
phospholipids possess the unique property required to break up peroxides
(radical free) formed by oxydation. Thus they contribute to
protect the Omega-3 fatty acids and to reduce the oxidative stress.
Moreover, the phospholipids are important components of the cellular
membranes and they support the absorption of the lipids while acting as
Astaxanthin : very powerful antioxidant.
Astaxanthin (ZANTHIN®*) present in Ocean+ Omega3 is a
natural carotenoid extracted from the algea Haematococcus pluvialis
by using a patented process. This pigment has one of the most powerful
antioxidant (slows down the aging process) activity. Results
obtained from an analysis made by using the ORAC test (see table below)
show that its antioxidant activity is 500 times superior to that of
Vitamin E. It has been proven that astaxanthin spreads more
easily in the body when it is part of a formula providing a lipidic
Vitamin E : antioxidant.
The presence of natural Vitamin E combined to all the
other antioxidants causes an antioxidant chain reaction extremely
favourable and insures a remarkable protection for the Omega-3 fatty
*The product ZANTHIN® used in this formula is protected by an
international patent and is known for its capacity to slow down damages
to eyes and the nervous system caused by free radicals.
Ocean+ Omega3 : A supplement with added value
- Blend of cold-water fish oils of pharmaceutical grade
with high potency EPA (350 mg) and DHA (250
mg), for a total of 600 mg per capsule.
The first ingredient (fish oil) has its own DIN number.
- The preparation of the ultra-pure wild fish oil is done by using
a patented process that eliminates contaminants.
- Ocean+ Omega3 is manufactured in a
pharmaceutical installation according to GMP standards.
- Omega-3 fatty acids are protected from oxidation
by adding to the formula phosphatidylcholine that decomposes
peroxides, natural Vitamin E and astaxanthin,
one of the most powerful naturally-occuring liposoluble antioxidant.
- Natural astaxanthin comes from the algae
Haematococcus pluvialis (Zanthin®). In Ocean+ Omega3,
astaxanthin has a high concentration of 0.5 mg per capsule.
- Phosphatidylcholine, astaxanthin and Vitamin E not only reduce
oxidation of Omega-3 fatty acids contained in the capsule, but would
also prevent multiplication of free radicals in the body (oxidative
stress) that are frequently involved in triggering the onset of
several health problems.
- Ocean+ Omega3 supplies an optimal and
safe nutritional intake of Omega-3 fatty acids by
preventing the intake of contaminants that are found in the flesh of
wild or cultivated fish.
Ocean+ Omega3 is a superior and exclusive
formula that combines all of the benefits that the informedconsumer is
