Super Omega with Krill and Astaxanthin 120 sgels by Life Extension

Super Omega with Krill and Astaxanthin 120 sgels by Life Extension

Emerging research suggests that different sources of omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish oil and krill oil, provide complementary effects upon cellular targets throughout the body.

Scientists suggest that combining fish oil and krill oil may provide enhanced support for cardiovascular health and the brain due to the different ways that fish oil and krill oil are taken up by our cells. Fish oil and krill oil share many important similarities, such as reducing levels of omega-6 relative to beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. Most Americans consume too many omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and not enough omega-3s.

Evidence suggests that by combining both fish and krill oil, you can maximize uptake and the protective benefits of a wide spectrum of omega-3 fatty acids. To provide enhanced coverage, a new Super Omega contains a potent concentration of fish oil, olive fruit, and sesame lignans, plus krill and astaxanthin.

Human studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil result in a more rapid uptake into plasma triglyceride and platelet phospholipids, which specifically benefit the cardiovascular system.

The omega-3s found in krill appear to be more rapidly incorporated into red blood cell phospholipids, which are rapidly absorbed into brain cells.

When combined, krill and fish oil appear to offer enhanced benefits for both the cardiovascular and nervous system than either form by itself.

Astaxanthin protects cells by controlling free-radical activity and boosting mitochondrial function. This potent antioxidant carotenoid has been shown to help optimize joint, immune, brain, cardiovascular, DNA, and mitochondrial health. Astaxanthin also supports healthy blood sugar levels for those already in the normal range. And astaxanthin crosses the blood-eye barrier, supporting vascular health within the eye and protecting the eyes’ sensitive cells.

In Super Omega with Krill & Astaxanthin, the natural astaxanthin content of krill is fortified with additional astaxanthin for maximum stability and benefit.

In 2013, the results of a huge trial of people who followed a Mediterranean diet were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Those who supplemented this diet either with olive oil or nuts showed such a huge reduction in primary cardiovascular problems that the trial was stopped early to spare the lives of those on the control diet. The Mediterranean diet—rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids found in olive oil, and antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs—has long been associated with cardiovascular health and increased life span.

To help emulate a Mediterranean diet, Super Omega provides a standardized olive fruit polyphenol extract to protect normal LDL from oxidation. Research shows that a combination of olive oil and fish oil supplements helps with inflammation better than a placebo or fish oil alone. The daily dose of Super Omega softgels provide the equivalent polyphenol content of 4 to 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.

The unstable nature of fatty acids like fish oil limits their biological efficacy in the body. Studies show that when sesame lignans are supplemented with fish oil, the beneficial effects are augmented.

Sesame lignans help guard against lipid peroxidation, thereby extending the stability of DHA in the body. These lignans also direct fatty acids toward pathways that can help with inflammatory reactions. Super Omega provides standardized sesame lignans to enhance the overall benefits of EPA/DHA marine oils.

Suggested Use: Take two softgels twice daily with meals, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
