It seems that most every health expert recommends taking fish oil.Omega 3 fish oils have become very popular, so popular in fact thatconcerns are being raised about the survival of certain fish species.
SUSTAINABLE Marine Oil Pearls:
EcoOmega contains sustainable food grade Calamari oil. Calamari isnaturally high in DHA and has a higher concentration of DHA thanbest-selling Omega-3 Fish Oil. Nearly 60% of the Omega 3 in Eco Omega is DHA. Eco Omega Marine Oil is a very pure, clean and effective source of DHA and EPA.
Certified Sustainable by Friend of the Sea
In1987, the WCED commission of the United Nations defined sustainabledevelopment as "development that meets the needs of the present withoutcompromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."In 2006, a non-profit organization called "Friend of the Sea" began to audit and certify companies that fish or farm fish for sustainablilty. Certified companies must adhere to strict sustainable activities.
In 2010, the calamari oil in Eco Omega was certified as sustainable by Friend of the Sea. Calamari (squid) is very different from other Omega 3marine sources (tuna, cod, anchovy, or krill). Reproductive age andlifespan are keys for population sustainablility. Squid reachreproduction age quickly and die after spawning, typically in less than 450 days. In contrast, the lifespan or reproductive age of yellow fintuna, cod, anchovy and krill can be measured in years, and even decades.Long lifespan and slow reproduction, combined with aggressive fishing,can jeopardize the populations of certain species over time. Calamari isnaturally more sustainable.
To further ensure sustainablilty, the Eco Omega oil is pressed from the trimmings of calamari alreadycaught for food. Calamari is not caught stricktly for its oil. And EcoOmega calamari fishing methods are environmentally sensitive. There islittle "by-catch" of other marine animals.
Why You Need Omega 3 Every Day?
Omega3 cannot be made by the body. You must get it from food or supplements.Omega 3 is highly concentrated the brain, heart, eyes and nervoussystem. Two key types of Omega 3 fatty acids are EPA and, especially,DHA. A serving of Eco Omega contains 250 mg of DHA and 125 mg of EPA.Traditional fish oils have much more EPA than DHA. In 2008, the PointInstitute of Nutritional Health rated DHA more important than EPA fortwice as many health conditions. These included general well-being,cadiovascular and eye health and brain acuity.*
A Pearl Sized Softgel.
Forgetoversized Omega 3 capsules. Eco Omega comes in a tiny softgel pearl.You can chew or easily swallow the pearls whole - up to 5 at a time.
Virtually Free of Lead and Mercury.
Calamarilive fast and die youg - their entire life cycle takes just one year,much shorter than fish such as cod or salmon which can live up to 20years. The lifespan of calamari lessens their exposure to lead, mercuryand other ocean pollutants found in other fish. Eco Omega is virtuallyfree of lead and mercury (no more than .0001 mg of either per serving)or other contaminants. A hint of natural fruit flavor in Eco Omega willfreshen your mouth when the pearls are chewed.
