High Potency Liquid Omega-3
8.5 fl oz - Liquid - Orange Flavor
A delicious, yes we said delicious way
to complement any diet with a complete and balanced source of natural Omega 3 fatty acids. This essential fatty acid is vital to good health and
has been scientifically researched for its role in supporting cardiovascular
health and a normal, healthy immune and inflammatory response. This liquid contains the highest combined levels of EPA and DHA of any LifeSource product. You'll love its "Lightly Sweet" Maple Syrup flavor; plus
its sugar and sodium free. High Potency Liquid Omega-3 can be taken by the tablespoon or mixed
into smoothies, yogurt or blended beverages to fortify your foods with optimal
amounts of omega 3 fatty acids.
The Omega 3 in this product is from pure fish oil harvested from anchovy in waters near Peru/South America.

of Omega 3 Fatty Acid. Omega 3 fatty acid contains the
polyunsaturated fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic
acid (EPA). It is found in certain types of fatty fish such as anchovies,
herring, salmon and mackerel. In 1976, Danish scientists H.O. Bang and J.
Dyerberg studied the Eskimo diet and proved that a high fish diet, which is
omega 3 fatty acids, can lower triglyceride levels in the blood and prevent the
buildup of plaque in the arteries.
Specifically, Omega-3's in fish oil
or other forms may help to:
Improve heart health. Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to play a part
in keeping cholesterol levels low, stabilizing irregular heart beat
(arrhythmia), and reducing blood pressure. Researchers now believe that
alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), one of the omega-3s, is particularly beneficial for
protecting against heart and vessel disease, and for lowering cholesterol and
triglyceride levels. An excellent source of ALA is flaxseed oil, sold as both
liquid oil and a semisolid margarine-like spread.
Omega 3 fatty acids are also natural blood thinners, reducing the
"stickiness" of blood cells (called platelet aggregation), which can
lead to such complications as blood clots and stroke.
Studies of large groups of people have found that the more omega-3 fatty acids
people consume, the lower their overall blood pressure level is. This was the
case with the Greenland Eskimos who ate a lot of oily, cold-water fish, for
Improve rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Raynaud's disease, and other autoimmune
diseases. Diets high in omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish oils) have been
shown to increase survival in people with autoimmune diseases. This is probably
because the omega-3's help the arteries--as well as many other parts of the
body--stay inflammation free. EPA and DHA are successful at this because they
can be converted into natural anti-inflammatory substances called
prostaglandins and leukotrienes, compounds that help decrease inflammation and
In numerous studies over the years, participants with
inflammatory diseases have reported less joint stiffness, swelling, tenderness,
and overall fatigue when taking omega-3's.
In 1998, an exciting review of well-designed, randomized
clinical trials reported that omega 3 fatty acids were more successful than a
placebo ("dummy drug") in improving the condition of people with
rheumatoid arthritis. The research also showed that getting more omega 3 fatty
acids enabled some participants to reduce their use of non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Improve depression and symptoms of other mental health problems. The
brain is remarkably fatty: In fact, this organ is 60% fat and needs omega-3's to
function properly. Now researchers have discovered a link between mood
disorders and the presence of low concentrations of omega 3 fatty acids in the
Apparently, omega 3's help regulate mental health problems because they enhance
the ability of brain-cell receptors to comprehend mood-related signals from
other neurons in the brain. In other words, the omega-3's are believed to help
keep the brain's entire traffic pattern of thoughts, reactions, and reflexes
running smoothly and efficiently. Clinical trials are underway to further
investigate whether supplementing the diet with omega-3's will reduce the
severity of such psychiatric problems as mild to moderate depression, dementia,
bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. Interestingly, the oil used to help the
child with a degenerative nerve disorder in the popular film Lorenzo's Oil was
an omega-3 fatty acid.
A study from the Orygen Research Centre in Melbourne suggests that omega 3
fatty acids could also help delay or prevent the onset of schizophrenia. The researchers enlisted 81 'high risk' young
people aged 13 to 24 who had previously suffered brief hallucinations or
delusions and gave half of them capsules of fish oil while the other half
received fish-tasting dummy substitute. One year on, only three percent of
those on fish oil had developed schizophrenia compared to 28 percent from those
on the substitute. A study conducted at Sheffield University in England
reported positive results with fish oil on patients suffering from
schizophrenia. Dr. Malcolm Peet, Professor of Psychiatry at Sheffield
University organized the study and followed the progress of the participants.
Participants of the study were previously taking anti-psychotic prescription
drugs but after some time were no longer effective on patients. After taking
fish oil supplements, participants in the study experienced progress compared
to others who were given a placebo.
According to a study from Louisiana State
University in September 2005, fish oil may help protect the brain
from cognitive problems associated with Alzheimer's disease.
A study examining whether omega-3 exerts neuroprotective
action in Parkinson's disease found that it did, using an experimental model,
exhibit a protective effect (much like it did for Alzheimer's disease as well).
The scientists exposed mice to either a control or a high omega-3 diet from two
to twelve months of age and then treated them with a neurotoxin commonly used
as an experimental model for Parkinson's. The scientists found that high doses
of omega-3 given to the experimental group completely prevented the
neurotoxin-induced decrease of dopamine that ordinarily occurs. Since Parkinson's
is a disease caused by disruption of the dopamine system, this protective
effect exhibited could show promise for future research in the prevention of
Aid cancer prevention and cancer support. Preliminary research from the University of California, Los
Angeles, suggests that omega-3 fatty acids may help maintain healthy breast
tissue and prevent breast cancer. Also, in a recent study, participants who
supplemented their diet with fish oils produced fewer quantities of a carcinogen
associated with colon cancer than did a placebo group. More research into this
exciting use for omega-3's is underway.
exactly is Omega-3 Fatty Acid?
Omega-3 fatty acid (Alpha-linolenic
acid) is an essential fatty acid that plays an important role in brain function
and may aid in the prevention of cardiovascular, disease. The American Heart
Association recommends a diet in which fatty fish, like salmon, herring,
sardines and tuna are consumed at least twice a week.
Health Benefits of Omega-3 Fatty Acid
Research on the health benefits of
omega-3 fatty acid have shown that it may be useful for supporting the
- Some Cancers
- Skin Disorders
- High Cholesterol
- High Blood Pressure
- Attention Disorders
- Depressive Disorders
- Macular Degeneration
- Digestive Difficulties
Omega-3 fatty acids are found naturally in:
- Brazil Nuts
- Hempseed Oil
- Mustard Seeds
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Chia Seed Oil
- Wheat Germ Oil
- Canola Oil (Rapeseed)
- Green Leafy Vegetables
- Raw Walnuts & Walnut Oil
- Flaxseeds or Flaxseed Oil
is EPA and DHA?
Within the body omega-3 fatty acids
are converted to DHA and EPA (docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid,
respectively). DHA and EPA are highly unsaturated fats that play very important
roles in the vision development and brain function of infants.
One study found significantly lower
amounts of EPA in the cells of patients who had attempted suicide, suggesting
that omega-3 fatty acids may actually play a role in suicide prevention. A lack
of DHA has been associated with Alzheimer disease, attention disorders,
phenylketonuria, cystic fibrosis and other diseases. Blue green algae is a good
source of EPA and DHA.
