ECO OMEGA: Sustainable Omega3 Marine Oil Pearls
It seems that most every health expert recommends taking fish oil. Omega 3
fish oils have become very popular, so popular, in fact, that concerns are being
raised about the survival of certain fish species.
Why You Need Omega 3 Every Day.
Omega 3 cannot be made by the body.
You must get it from food or supplements. Omega 3 is highly concentrated in the
brain, heart, eyes and nervous system.
Two key types of Omega 3 fatty acids
are EPA and, especially, DHA. One 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
Point Institute of Nutritional Health rated DHA more important than EPA for
twice as many health conditions. These included general well-being,
cadiovascular and eye health and brain acuity.*

EcoOmega: SUSTAINABLE Marine Oil Pearls
Forget oversized Omega 3 capsules.
Eco Omega comes in a tiny soft-gel pearl. You can chew or easily swallow the
pearls whole - up to 5 at a time.
contains sustainable food grade Calamari oil. Calamari is naturally high in DHA
and has a higher concentration of DHA than best-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
In 1987, the WCED
commission of the United Nations defined sustainable development as "development
that meets the needs of the present without compromising 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 3
marine sources (tuna, cod, anchovy, or krill). Reproductive age and lifespan are
keys for population sustainablility. Squid reach reproduction age quickly and
die after spawning, typically in less than 450 days. In contrast, the lifespan
or reproductive age of yellow fin tuna, 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 is naturally more sustainable.
To further ensure sustainabililty, the Eco Omega oil is pressed from the
trimmings of calamari already caught for food. Calamari is not caught strictly
for its oil. And Eco Omega calamari fishing methods are environmentally
sensitive. There is little "by-catch" of other marine animals.
Virtually Free of Lead and Mercury.
Calamari live fast and die young
- their entire life cycle takes just one year, much shorter than fish such as
cod or salmon which can live up to 20 years. The lifespan of calamari lessens
their exposure to lead, mercury and other ocean pollutants found in other fish.
Eco Omega is virtually free 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 will freshen your mouth when the pearls are chewed. Take 3-5 pearls once
daily with a meal.
What is EcoOmega? Sustainable Omega3
Eco Omega contains sustainable
food grade calamari oil (squid oil).
Calamari are naturally high in DHA and
has an higher concentration of DHA than best selling Omega-3 fish oil. Nearly
60% of the Omega3 in Eco Omega is DHA. Eco Omega Marine Oil is a very pure,
clean and effective.
How much EPA/DHA per serving?
A serving = 5 Chewable
Omega3 Fatty Acids: 425mg
What are the levels of Lead and Mercury
Eco Omega is virtually free
of lead and mercury.(less than .0001mg per serving) The entire life cycle of
calamari is just 15 months, much shorter than fish such as cod or salmon which
can live 8 to 20 years. The short lifespan of calamari lessens their exposure to
lead, mercury and other ocean pollutants found in other fish.
