Ultra-Pure Omega-3 Fish Oil Helps To Support:
- Healthy heart and cardiovascular function*
- Healthy joints and normal flexibility*
- Brain health, normal focus and mood*
- Healthy skin and circulation*
Multipronged, Multifaceted Total Body Support
Purity's elite Ultra-Pure Omega-3 Fish Oil is not made for one purpose—it’s
designed for many. Science has shown that the DHA & EPA in fish oil both
contribute to the healthy and comfortable function of joints, the maintenance of
cognitive abilities, healthy looking skin, and maintenance of cardiovascular
health.* On top of that, Purity’s refinement, purification and distillation
process ensures world-class Omega-3 purity and quality. Our Fish Oils are made
in one of just a few pharmaceutical facilities in Norway. Our proprietary
Antioxidant Blend and lemon flavored oil maintains freshness and prevents any
repeating, one of the chief reasons why people who desire the finest Omega-3
Fish Oil in the world appreciate Purity’s Ultra Pure Omega-3.
Premium Grade, Ultra-Refined, Concentrated Fish Oil
The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil provide scientifically
backed support for the heart and circulatory system, joints, the brain, skin,
eyes, and more.* Just two soft gels of Purity's Ultra Pure Omega-3 contains a potent 650 mg of EPA and 500 mg of
DHA—the two powerhouse omega-3's that researchers believe are responsible in
large part for the health benefits of fish consumption. This ratio of EPA to DHA
is in line with current expert recommendations for the ideal composition of fish
oil capsules.1 As part of Purity’s commitment to product quality, Ultra-Pure
Omega-3 Fish Oil is not only concentrated—it is also "molecularly distilled."
This process removes contaminants from the fish oil and locks in the purity.
Research Update-Fish Oil Benefits Cognitive Performance and Cardiovascular Health!
In a noteworthy new clinical study published in the Nutrition Journal (Nov 22, 2012) a group of 44 healthy middle aged to elderly subjects achieved better cognitive performance after taking 3 grams of fish oil daily for just five weeks. This placebo-controlled trial utilized the "cross-over" study method which means the participants took either fish oil or a placebo for 5 weeks, followed by 5 weeks off and then switched to fish oil or placebo for another 5 weeks. After taking fish oil, subjects had improved scores on tests of working memory and selective attention. Indicators of cardiovascular health also showed positive changes that were directly correlated to the gains in cognitive function.
The Fish Oil Advantage vs. other forms of Omega-3's
Omega-3 fatty acids are found in several forms, and some of
them work more efficiently in our body than others in helping us maintain our
health. For example, a large-scale review of scientific literature analyzed
dozens of well-designed studies that had investigated the potential benefits of
omega-3s on human cardiovascular health. The authors concluded that omega-3s
from fish or fish oil had stronger evidence of cardiovascular benefits in the
research subjects studied than omega-3s from other sources like flaxseed.2 The
omega-3 fatty acids from plant sources, known as ALA, face barriers to becoming
EPA & DHA in your body. It is estimated that perhaps 5% to 10% of ALA is
converted to EPA in your body, and only 2% to 5% may then become DHA.3
Therefore, fish oil is a more direct route to supporting the production of the
type of eicosanoids that we want to see active inside of us.
The American Heart Association and Cardiovascular Maintenance
Fish oil is perhaps most renown for its contributions to heart
health. In fact, the American Heart Association put forth specific
recommendations for regular fish consumption or, for people who may benefit the
most from an increase in omega-3s, about 1 gram daily of DHA & EPA from omega-3
fatty acid capsules.4 This is because the active ingredients in fish oil (DHA &
EPA) help maintain blood lipids, including triglycerides, already in the normal range. EPA & DHA also support maintenance of a healthy heart rate and already normal blood pressure.*5 For optimal heart health, experts have even suggested aiming for
target levels of EPA & DHA in red blood cell membranes. They suggest that this
goal may be reached with a daily quantity similar to that found in a serving of
Ultra-Pure Omega-3 Fish Oil.6
Healthy Looking Skin
The sun can be hard on our skin, which is one more reason to
take fish oil capsules. Science has shown that orally consumed EPA (in the form
of omega-3 capsules) in humans can produce a more favorable skin reaction to the
type of light generated by the sun.7, 8 The typical Western diet is very low in
omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, and sometimes this shows right where
everyone can see it. Many researchers believe that omega-3 intake is, in some
people, dramatically linked to how their skin looks. The DHA & EPA from fish oil
are very influential in how your body produces eicosanoids—and when this chain
of events is localized in the skin, these omega-3s help you maintain normal,
healthy, radiant skin.*9-11
Attention was drawn to fish oil when 20th century analyses of
Greenland Inuits revealed their remarkably good heart and joint health compared
to Western cultures where the consumption of fish was lacking.12 Since then, the
biochemical effects of fish oil on joint health have been demonstrated
repeatedly in human research studies. Fish oil interacts with metabolites in the
body called eicosanoids, which in turn can positively affect flexibility and comfort in
joints.*14 The omega-3s in fish oil also help regulate with the production of
reactive oxygen species throughout the body, providing additional benefits that
can translate into comfort where you need it.*14
Central to your Nervous System
DHA & EPA are crucial not only during periods of brain
development, but also for normal brain function during adulthood. It should be
no surprise then that—through the evaluation of results from many research
studies—scientists have concluded that the continuation of optimal brain
function as we age is in part dependant on our consumption of omega-3 fatty
acids.15 Since many brain cell membranes are rich in DHA, it is also not
surprising that inadequate intake of this nutrient is thought to contribute to
more rapid decline of the structure and function of these brain cells.16 In
fact, studies have shown that DHA & EPA can support brain reactivity and
attention, as well as promote a balanced mood.*17, 18
LemonLock™ Freshness System
Purity's LemonLock™ Freshness System locks in purity and seals in freshness.
Omega-3s such as Fish Oil and Krill Oil provide a host of health benefits for
the body. But just like real food, Omega-3s are better for you when they are
fresh. Old fish oil can go rancid, and oxidation in rancid fish oil can lead to
unpleasant fish oil burps. Purity starts out with ultra-pure, superior quality,
concentrated Omega-3s, preserving them with our scientifically advanced
LemonLock™ Freshness System. Unlike other companies whose Omega-3s may go
rancid, our LemonLock™ System infuses our Fish and Krill Oils with a potent
antioxidant complex - sealing in the purity of our Omega-3s. It's a difference
you can experience.
3rd Party Tested and Certified by the NSF
Truth In Labeling -- A Truly Independent Program
NSF is an independent, not-for-profit testing organization offering true product
testing of dietary supplements. NSF does not simply evaluate test data submitted
by manufacturers or analyze just a single sample of a product and give it an
okay. They conduct product testing in their own accredited laboratories to
ensure that the actual contents of the supplement product match those printed on
Components of the NSF Certification Program
There are three main components of the NSF Dietary Supplements Certification Program:
- Verification that the contents of the supplement actually match what is printed on the label
- Assurance that there are no ingredients present in the supplement that are not openly disclosed on the label
- Assurance that there are no unacceptable levels of contaminants present in the supplement
If you use a dietary supplement that has been certified
by NSF, you can be confident that the contents of your supplement are being
regularly checked by one of the most respected certifiers in the world. With NSF
certification, you get the continued assurance that only NSF’s ongoing testing
programs can provide. Unlike some other programs, NSF conducts annual audits and
periodically retests each dietary supplement product to ensure continued
compliance against the toughest testing standard in existence today.
