Pure Omega Ultra HP

WHAT IT DOES

PROVIDES ESSENTIAL OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS

Pure Omega products provide a triglyceride form of omega-3 fatty acids sustainably sourced from anchovies, sardines, herring, tuna, and mackerel.

Every lot of Pure Omega is tested for purity and labeled potency claims. The results of these tests are available to you using the lot number found on each bottle. Check your product purity here.

HOW IT WORKS

EPA & DHA HELP SUPPORT ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS*

Omega-3 essential polyunsaturated fatty acids have distinct chemical structures and physiologic functions that distinguish them from other families of essential fatty acids. Often lacking in Western diets, omega-3 fatty acids compete with other fatty acids in the body for cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX) enzyme metabolism, incorporation into cell membranes, and the synthesis of lipid mediators.1-3 The long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are almost exclusively marine-derived and act together to influence membrane fluidity and signal transduction pathways.4

EPA and DHA are abundantly enriched in the retina, brain, and heart tissues.5-7 Each have preferential distribution within the phospholipid bilayer of cell membranes and have been shown to exert unique biological actions.4

Humans have limited capacity to endogenously produce EPA and DHA; therefore they are considered essential fatty acids. Dietary supplementation of EPA and DHA is an effective way to increase intake of these essential fatty acids.

FAQs

  • A. Based upon our Research and Development team's findings, vegetarian soft gels do not provide a sufficient barrier against oxidation when compared to gelatin-based soft gels. The research on vegetarian soft gels is ongoing and with further development, an upgrade offering of a vegetarian gel may be available in the future.

  • A. The softgels should be stored in room temperature, away from direct sunlight. Refrigeration is not required as the gelatin shell acts as an oxygen barrier to minimize oxidation.

  • A. No. Pure Omega is broken down within the stomach where the first stage of fat digestion occurs. Due to the purity and stability of the oil, the oil does not have a fishy taste or smell. If burping, in general, without a fishy taste occurs, consume the Pure Omega products with food.

  • A. The fish are sustainably harvested within the Chilean waters and is certified as Friends of the Sea certification for anchovy from the Pacific Ocean for Sustainable Fisheries organization.

  • A. Pure Omega Ultra HP utilizes molecular distillation, a gentle, low temperature process to prevent the long chain omega-3 fatty acids from oxidizing over time through removing contaminants and pollutants from the fish oil.

  • A. Caution should be taken whenever recommending, or consuming, nutritional supplements. Use this drug-nutrient interaction checker to view potential interactions.
