Ultimate Omega+ is a high-potency omega-3 fish oil product, providing 600 mg EPA and 400 mg DHA in each two softgel serving along with the digestive aid lipase for enhanced absorption. In order to maintain optimum health, the body requires a variety of different fats. Two of these—omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids—are essential. As a result of industrialized farming practices and modern food processing technology, the American diet is very high in omega-6s, but low in omega-3s. Correcting this imbalance through foods and supplements can be beneficial for the entire body.
The Story Behind Omega-3s
The best sources of omega-3 fats are cold water fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel. The omega-3s that come from marine animals are different from the plant forms (such as walnuts and flaxseed), in that many people cannot effectively convert the plant forms to the animal forms, which are the more potent and biologically active versions that the body ultimately requires.
Since most people do not consume cold water fish regularly, supplementation is critical for those concerned about any of the health issues listed to the right, and is also recommended for healthy individuals in order to maintain a good baseline balance of fatty acids.
Ultimate Omega contains the omega-3 fatty acids EPA & DHA:
- Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) – beneficial for supporting a healthy brain, balanced emotions, skin health, maintaining normal cholesterol levels and modulating the inflammatory response*
- Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – supports proper brain development and function, visual acuity, maintenance of normal triglyceride levels and blood pressure, eye development and a healthy pregnancy in expectant moms*
Potency – the TruTG™ advantage:
Ultimate Omega contains fish oils in the triglyceride (TG) form —the same way they naturally occur in fish. Most mass-marketed and lower-priced fish oil supplements come in the ethyl ester (EE) form. These are less expensive and more convenient to produce, but they are not as readily recognized, digested, and assimilated in the body as the TG form. In order to receive the maximum benefit from omega-3 supplementation, it is critical to provide these fats to the body in the same way they are found naturally in fish. It is only when consumed in this natural form that they are most easily digested and absorbed. This TruTG™ advantage is especially effective at promoting healthy omega-3 levels in the body.
Purity - Ultimate Omega also includes mixed tocopherols, which protect these fragile oils from oxidation and rancidity. Additionally, these fish oils are molecularly distilled and filtered to ensure purity and to maximize the removal of metals, pesticides, PCBs, and other contaminants.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take two softgels per day with meals, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
