OMEGA 3 CONTENT
OMEGA 3 CONTENT
Only the long chain fatty acids EPA and DHA in omega 3 has the health benefits as shown in multiple studies.
Like an antibiotic, a therapeutic dosage is needed for these health benefits. You need at least >60% of these fatty acids present. Some products contain Omega 6 (pro-inflammatory), 9 and 7 which does not contain these essential fatty acids. Unfortunately, products do not always contain the quantity as stated on the label.
IFOS is the only program that tests fish oil products by batch/lot number to ensure that they contain the amount of active ingredient(s) stated on the label. Every batch of Enervit Spa Omega3RX is tested to support it's claim of more than 65% EPA/DHA content.
Environmental contaminents accumalate in the fatty tissue of fish, which renders fishoil at risk of containing high amounts of these toxins. Fish oils can contain heavy metals such as (mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium), PCB's, dioxins and furans.
Clinical research suggests that these contaminants can have negative health effects, outweighing the beneficial effects of Omega 3 supplementation. More information
Fish oil is a highly unstable oil sensitisve to oxygen and light which means that when it reacts with these factors, it degrades and become rancid. During manufacturing and after bottling these rancid levels can be tested. It is called the TOTOX indexand measures the levels of peroxides, aldehydes and ketones in the finished product. All these degradation products can cause DNA damage. A common way to cover up a spoiled product is by using high levels of flavours.
IFOS CERTIFIED: THE INTERNATIONAL FISH OIL STANDARDS PROGRAMME
This is the only independent programme that tests the fish oils by batch/lot number for the abovementioned qualities and awards 5 stars if the fishoil complies with the standards set for a healthy, pure, potent omega 3 supplement. You can view each Omega3Rx batch on their website and compare with other brands.
In response to increased consumer inquiries about fish oil and radiation, all fish oil samples submitted for IFOS testing will have radiation added to the Consumer Reports as of January 1st, 2015
FRESH: NO FISHY AFTERTASTE
The cleaner the oil, the fresher the taste. Apart from the high quality oil, EnerZona OMEGA3 RX exclusively uses EntericareTM Technology, a special capsule production technology, which guarantees greater protection of the fish oil in the stomach, preventing an unpleasant aftertaste.
