O-Mega-Zen3 by NuTru
From the manufacturer's website:
A completely vegetarian (vegan), all natural, once-a-day formulation. O-Mega-Zen3 is derived from natural marine sources... Highly concentrated, extra strength Omega-3 DHA with special nutraceutical composition having twice the active ingredient of Omega-3 DHA. Supplies Omega-3s largely absent in the modern diet.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a long chain omega-3 fatty acid, is a critical nutrient. DHA is one of the main components of brain tissue. It is required for the proper functioning of all neural systems, including vision. Recent research has shown that other omega-3 fatty acids, such as LNA (or ALA) (alpha linolenic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), do not have the same health effects of DHA. In addition, the human body can only convert a small percentage of LNA or EPA to DHA. Therefore, DHA is the essential omega-3 fatty acid in the modern Western diet for which supplementation is indicated. Dr. Dean Ornish recommends taking 3 to 4 grams of fish oil per day, which is equivalent to 360 to 480 mg of DHA per day. He also notes that "fish contain saturated fat and cholesterol, so fish and fish oils tend to cause LDL ("bad" cholesterol) levels to increase." Therefore, by taking one or two capsules of O-Mega-Zen3 you can get the amount of DHA recommend by Dr. Ornish, without the risk of increasing your cholesterol.
The Need for DHA Supplementation:
Low levels of DHA have been found in persons with: heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, Alzheimer's Disease, Attention Deficit Disorder, depression, insomnia, stress, hyperactivity, dyslexia. On the other hand, DHA supplementation has been shown to improve all of the conditions listed above, and more.
O-Mega-Zen3 contains DHA that is extracted from microalgae, which is grown in fermentation tanks derived from cultures of golden marine algae isolated from the Pacific Ocean. One capsule of O-Mega-Zen3 contains 300 mg of DHA. This is the only high-potency source of DHA on the market (other vegetarian sources contain 100 mg per capsule), and O-Mega-Zen3 is free from all contaminants. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has allowed the following statements on the O-Mega-Zen3 label: "Omega-3s such as EPA and DHA have been the subject of considerable scientific research of their beneficial effects in terms of cardiovascular system, central nervous system and other major bodily systems." In addition, the FDA classifies the DHA oil used in O-Mega-Zen3 as a Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) food ingredient.
