EPA / DHA Omega 3 Fatty Acids - Supplements, Benefits, Side Effects - Dose
As recommended as a part of Dr. Nicholas Perricone's Weight-loss Diet

Enteric Coated With Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract (Molecularly Distilled) -- 120 enteric coated softgels

Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract is from a new source of pharmaceutical-grade fish oil with a unique 35% / 25% ratio of EPA/DHA virtually side effects free.  The premium fish oil in Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract has been tested for pollutants including dioxins, furans, PCBs and heavy metals.  The oil is sourced from the purest wild sardine, anchovy, and mackerel fished in cold, pristine, deep waters off South America, where there are significantly less environmental impurities.  Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract fish oil is the product of a healthy, fully sustainable fishery and is a renewable resource.

Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract is manufactured to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and HACC (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) standards and are also in compliance with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency(CFIA) standards.  Our fish oil supply is the first and only fish oil ingredient to achieve US Pharmacopoeia (USP) verification, which is the most rigorous quality assurance verification in the world.

The U.S. Pharmacopoeia is the body that establishes the standards for the FDA.  Direct access to the best fisheries in the world are critical for the manufacture of Omega-3 fatty acids fish oil.  This product is compliant with the Council for Responsible Nutrition's (CRN) Voluntary Monograph on Long Chain Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA -- strict industry manufacturing standards, guaranteeing a high quality product with numerous positive side effects.  Life Extension has uncovered research that demonstrates that the addition of sesame lignans to fish oil enhances its beneficial effects.

When fats are consumed, they are broken down into factors that either promote or suppress inflammatory reactions.  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.

In his latest book, The Perricone Prescription, Dr. Nicholas Perricone dedicates a section to olive oil and refers specifically to hydroxytyrosol as its and most potent protective antioxidant.  Dr. Perricone states that hydroxytyrosol slows the breakdown of the skin by stabilizing the cell plasma membrane.  He recommends daily olive oil ingestion for the positive side effects of soft, shiny hair and strong nails.

Fatty acids are essential for life.  Besides storing energy, these fats are part of our makeup;  they live in our healthy cells, muscles, nerves, and organs.  Conversely, there are bad fats that must be controlled or avoided to maintain benefits for your health.

The good fats are unsaturated fats that are usually from oils of vegetables, nuts, and some fish.  Since they cannot be produced within the body, our diets must be EFA (essential fatty acid) rich.  Bad fats are saturated fats, typically from animal fats, dairy products, avocados, etc.  Without adequate levels of good fats, dangerous saturated fats will replace the essential fatty acids in our cells causing an array of negative side effects.

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 health benefits."

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.

Only Life Extensions Enteric Coated Super EPA/DHA contains the healthy trio of concentrated nutrients from fish oil, sesame seed oil and extra virgin olive oil.

Sensitive Stomachs and/or Burping of Regular Fish Oils
Super Enteric Coated EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract contains twice as much EPA and DHA as conventional fish oil capsules.  For those with sensitive stomachs or who experience burping of regular fish oils, Super Omega-3 is enterically coated, so the softgel is not degraded in the stomach but broken down and released in the small intestine.

Other Dose/Use Information:
  • Two softgels may be taken up to three times daily if so directed by a healthcare practitioner or see above,
  • Do not take with fiber supplements,
  • The olive polyphenols in Polyphen-Oil protect against LDL oxidation, suppress free radicals, and stabilize cell membranes,
  • Each serving of two softgels provides the amount of polyphenols equivalent to drinking two ounces of virgin olive oil,
  • To minimize the possibility of what's called the "burping side effects," store your bottle in the freezer.

If you are taking anticoagulant drugs, use only under the supervision of your physician.  Blood tests that measure clotting time can be used to ensure these nutrients are not reducing the clotting factors in your blood to abnormal levels.


Note:  It is important to refrigerate (and/or freezer) Super EPA / DHA Omega 3 fatty acids supplements once they are received for the best benefits.
