EPA/DHA - Omega 3 Fatty Acids w/Olive/Fish Oil, Side Effects - Pg 2
Based on the multiple positive side effects of omega-3 fatty acids, including its effects on the heart, the importance of DHA and EPA cannot be overstated.
Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract contains pharmaceutical-grade fish oil with a unique 35% / 25% ratio of EPA/DHA. Research demonstrates that the addition of sesame lignans to fish oil enhances its beneficial positive side effects. Sesame lignans inhibit an enzyme (delta-5-desaturase) that causes dietary fats to be converted into arachidonic acid, a precursor to the toxic inflammatory factors prostaglandin E2 and leukotriene B4.
Polyphen-Oil Olive Fruit Extract is a proprietary, fortified extra virgin olive oil complex developed by Life Extension. The naturally occurring polyphenol antioxidants are typically lost in olive juice discarded during olive oil pressing. Polyphen-Oil is highly enriched oil with olive juice extract standardized with these naturally occurring antioxidants. The olive polyphenols in Polyphen-Oil help maintain normal LDL oxidation, suppress free radicals, and stabilize cell membranes.
Only Life Extension's Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract contains the "healthy trio" of concentrated nutrients from fish oil, sesame seed oil and extra virgin olive oil. Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract contains twice as much EPA and DHA as conventional fish oil capsules.
Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract is certified to contain no detectable levels of mercury, arsenic, lead, cadmium, and other toxic metals by the International Fish Oil Society making it side effects free compared to most others on the market. This product meets or exceeds IFOS standards (see below) for PCBs, dioxins, and other contaminants.
Dose: As recommended by Dr. Udo Erasmus, the author of several books on fatty acids, states "In the beginning, you may want to start with smaller amounts and gradually increase to optimum levels which is approximately 1 tablespoon per 50 pounds of body weight; especially if you have a history of being on a low fat or a no fat diet, or if your liver is weak ..." and, he continues "We should use oils rich in omega 3 and omega 6 fats (2:1 ratio) and should be made and stored under protection from light, oxygen and heat. I have found that about 15ml per 25 kg of body weight (about one Tablespoon for 50 lbs) is optimum, but as little as 5-10 ml per day has positive health side effects."
One tablespoon equates to about 9 capsules per day (preferably in divided doses). You can mix the oil in protein shakes, salads, pancakes, fruit smoothies, etc. The possibilities are endless.
