What does it do?
Super Critical Omega is formulated to supply the Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA which are often deficient in the Canadian diet.
How does it work?
Super Critical Omega contains the Omega 3 fatty acids EPA & DHA from cold water fish, which are essential fatty acids (EFA's). The body cannot produce these EFA's, so they must be ingested from food sources. Sadly the Canadian diet is often deficient in EFA's, so it is vital for your health to ensure adequate intake through supplementation.
EFA's are a component of every cell wall in the body. By taking Super Critical Omega, it ensures that you have the necessary ‘pieces' to build new, healthy cells. Research has shown the benefits of high potency Omega 3s with EPA & DHA on many different conditions including:
A systematic review of 21 research papers showed that “marine omega-3 fatty acids are effective in preventing cardiovascular events, cardiac death and coronary events, especially in persons with high cardiovascular risk” (Delgado-Lista, J. et al, 2012).
Fish oils increase HDL (the so called good cholesterol). HDL “has anti-atherogenic property by reversing cholesterol transport from the peripheral tissues to liver… Fish oils consumption, especially docosahexaenoic acid consumption, may be favorably associated with HDL metabolism” (Yanai et al., 2015).
EPA works to decrease arterial stiffness, which may contribute to the antiarterial plaque effect seen in dyslipidemic (high cholesterol) patients taking EPA supplements. (Satoh-Asahara et al, 2012)
A meta-analysis of clinical trials on depression showed supplements containing more than 60% EPA plus DHA were effective against primary depression. (Sublette et al, 2011). As well as that, “several studies have indicated that n-3 PUFA (Omega 3) are useful therapeutic tools for the treatment of dementia, major depression, bipolar disorder, and PTSD” (Hasimoto et al., 2014).
How is it different from other fish oils?
Super Critical Omega uses the targeted release method, Ultragest™ Technology to ensure superior absorption, by delivering the fish oils directly to the intestines. This results in 3 times better absorption than non-coated oils* and helps eliminate any unpleasant aftertaste, or fishy repeat.Added lipase (a natural fat-splitting enzyme) helps the body digest and utilize the beneficial oils which also helps to ensure there is no intestinal discomfort.
*In vivo studies show 3X more Omega-3 absorption with enteric coating based on results measured in plasma phospholipids (PL), cholesteryl esters (CE) and triacylglycerols (TAG).
