Taking excellent care of yourself takes work. You exercise, eat well, drink lots of water, take a probiotic, a multivitamin and get plenty of rest. But is taking a daily essential fatty acid supplement on your list? If it isn’t already, it should be.
Omega-3 fatty acids are classified as “essential” because the human body cannot produce these fatty acids on its own, so they must be obtained from an outside source (such as food or dietary supplements) ¹. In addition to supporting heart and brain health, numerous studies show that omega-3 fatty acids may also help lower inflammation throughout your body, which if left unchecked, can lead to a number of chronic diseases. 2,3,4
Omega-3 fatty acids are the basic elements of our cell membranes. Two crucial ones – EPA and DHA – are primarily found in certain fish. DHA is the most important omega-3 in the brain and EPA has been associated with improving mood disorders and reducing inflammation5. Not only does your body need these fatty acids in order to function properly, consuming omega-3 fatty acids can also result in big health benefits. For instance, did you know that fats make up at least 60% of your brain? Or that omegas are critical for infant brain development during both the fetal and postnatal period6?
Since it’s hard to tell how much omega-3 you’re actually getting from food like fish (which can be affected by type of fish and the way it’s prepared), taking Renew Life® Norwegian Gold fish oils ensure the following:
TESTING AND CERTIFICATION
Each Renew Life fish oil product carries the IFOS™ label (International Fish Oil Standards). This seal guarantees that our products meet or exceed international standards for purity, potency and sustainability. All Renew Life Norwegian Gold products have received a 5-star rating from the IFOS™ program.
Renew Life’s concentrated Norwegian Gold omega-3 capsules are subject to an exclusive multi-step concentration process that creates highly concentrated, ultra-pure fish oils with high potencies of EPA and DHA. This provides maximum benefits with fewer capsules.
Adding the digestive enzyme Lipase to a formulation makes it easier for many to break down fish oils to enhance the utilization of their benefits. All Renew Life fish oils contain Lipase, with the exception of Kids DHA, which is a chewable.
FRIEND OF THE SEA® CERTIFICATION
Ensures that the fish in our formulas are sourced from wild, unthreatened fish that live in pristine waters. As part of our ongoing commitment to the environment and sustainability of resources, all our omega-3 fish oil supplements are Friend of the Sea third-party certified guaranteeing sustainable fisheries and aquaculture practices are utilized.
Enteric-coated capsules provide a targeted release method to ensure absorption and reduce fishy burps.
100% FISH GELATIN CAPSULE
This is ideal for fish-eating vegetarians or those with religious dietary restrictions. It is available for all Renew Life® Fish Oil capsules except for Kids DHA which is a chewable bovine gel cap.
