ProHealth FundraisingFunding Research to Find Cures
Knowing that research is the key to finding cures for chronic, debilitating diseases, ProHealth has raised and donated more than $3.5 million to organizations researching fibromyalgia, ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and other conditions.

You Help Make it Possible
As a crucial part of our mission, a portion of each purchase you make goes toward this fundraising effort. This is such a high priority that in some years our donations outpaced our profits. Thank you for helping support our efforts.
Life Extension's Super Omega-3 is a premium, scientifically-validated fish oil concentrate, derived from sustainable sources, that contains a proprietary, full-spectrum blend of synergistic nutrients to provide scientifically validated cardioprotective health benefits.

Super Omega-3 uses a proprietary EPA/DHA technology that results in a pure, stable and easy-to-tolerate fish oil. The Pure+™ fish oil used in Super Omega-3 is produced with a proprietary technology that purifies the oil with a highly advanced distillation process to reduce environmental pollutants to extremely low levels. The result is an improved fish oil that exceeds the standards set by international rating agencies.

The body needs fatty acids to survive and is able to make all but two of them: linoleic acid (LA), in the omega-6 family, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in the omega-3 family. These two fatty acids must be supplied by the diet and are therefore considered essential fatty acids (EFAs).

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in coldwater fish (and fish oil), perilla and flaxseed oils, are essential elements of a healthy diet. Omega-3 oils contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are usually lacking in the typical Western diet, which is filled with foods containing high amounts of omega-6 fats.(1) EPA and DHA can be synthesized in the body from ALA, but EPA and DHA synthesis may be insufficient under certain conditions and for most people that consume Western diets.

Sesame Lignans

Sesame lignans help guard against lipid peroxidation, thereby extending the stability of DHA in the body. These lignans also direct fatty acids toward pathways which can help with inflammatory reactions. Super Omega-3 provides standardized sesame lignans to enhance the overall benefits of the improved EPA/DHA fish oil.

The unstable nature of fatty acids like fish oil limits their biological efficacy in the body. Scientific studies show that when sesame lignans are supplemented with fish oil, the beneficial effects are augmented.(2,3)

Standardized Olive Fruit Extract

To emulate a Mediterranean diet, Super Omega-3 provides a standardized olive fruit extract to deliver the polyphenol hydroxytyrosol, a powerful antioxidant that protects normal LDL from oxidation and counters free radicals.(4-8) Research shows that a combination of olive oil and fish oil supplements helps with inflammation better than a placebo or fish oil alone.(9) Therefore, four softgels of Super Omega-3 provide the equivalent polyphenol content of 4 to 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.

Super Omega-3 provides a high concentration of olive fruit extract standardized for hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol, verbascoside and oleuropein polyphenols. Research shows the value of oleuropein in favorably altering gene expression, delaying senescence in specialized skin cells, and helping maintain normal platelet activation.
