  • Abundant scientific research substantiates the wide-ranging health benefits‚ including promoting a healthy heart‚ of omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil and mono-unsaturated fatty acids-polyphenols in olive fruit.

    Super Omega-3 from Life Extension uses a patented EPA/DHA extraction process that results in a pure‚ stable and easy-to-tolerate fish oil extract.

    While most fish oil is distilled to decrease contaminants such as mercury and PCBs‚ the Pure+™ fish oil used in Super Omega-3 is produced with a patented method that purifies the oil with a highly advanced distillation process to reduce pollutants to virtually undetectable levels. The result is an improved fish oil that exceeds the standards set by international rating agencies.

    The unstable nature of fatty acids like fish oil limits their biological efficacy in the body. Scientific studies show that when sesame lignans are added to fish oil‚ the beneficial effects are augmented.

    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 blend.

    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 dangerous free radicals. Research shows that a combination of olive oil and fish oil supplements support joint comfort‚ mobility and a healthy inflammatory response better than a placebo or fish oil alone. Therefore‚ Super Omega-3 provides the equivalent polyphenol content of 6 ounces of extra virgin olive oil.

    Super Omega-3 provides a concentrated olive fruit extract standardized for hydroxytyrosol‚ tyrosol 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.

    Life Extension’s Super Omega-3 is a fish oil concentrate that contains a full-spectrum blend of synergistic nutrients‚ providing a product of the utmost quality to produce optimal effects.

    Best price for a superior product

    This was the best price I found for this product which enabled me to try it. It had a slight odor but I did not taste it and it did not repeat. Ive had other less expensive brands that I ended up tasting all day and would end up throwing away. I have my husband taking them and we are hoping this helps his labs so he does not have to increase his expensive and unhealthy prescription medicine.

    Pros

      Good sale price. Does not repeat. The added olive fruit extract is like getting two products in one.

    Cons

      When not on sale it is expensive. You must take two caps to get a decent amount of epa/dha.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Great Product

    I have been using Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract for six months and was introduced to it by doing research through Consumer Lab. My doctor had me on a prescription for high EPA/DHA that cost over $225/month. Through my research I found Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract that has the amount of EPA/DHA that my doctor wants me on and has allowed me to use it. Instead of taking 4 pills/day of the expensive prescription I take 5/day of Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract and it has drastically but my medical expense! I have yet to have a blood test to determine how my levels are but hopefully they will be good and I can stay on this product.

    Pros

      The cost and hopefully the effectiveness

    Cons

      The color and size

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    High cholesterol

    I have a family history of high cholesterol and triglycerides which my doctor attempts to control with medications. I was on a prescription with a high dose of the EPA/DHA at a cost to me after Medicare of $250 a month. He would not allow me to use just "fish oil" products because they did not list the amounts of EPA/DHA. I did some research thanks to Pureformulas.com and found Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract. He is allowing me to use this- at a much lower cost than the prescription -- on a trial basis. I will have my fasting blood work done in November and hopefully this will do as well as the $250/month medication.

    Pros

      The cost

    Cons

      The size -- and the color - black pills?

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Sounded Good...

    After just opening the bottle the smell was apparent. Company said it has a slight odor but my slight and theirs must be different. I have taken 2 other Omega products and neither of those smelled or caused the problems as with Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract. Since they said it does have an odor and not rancid tried for 2 days but the odor caused me to hold my breath while taking and have to wash my hands after taking. This is a problem because I get my pills ready the night before and could not put these in with the others because of the smell. Did cause burping.

    Pros

      5 - star rating & amount of EPA/DHA per serving

    Cons

      The "slight" odor was overwhelming to me. Even my hands had that fish smell and had to wash them. Had to hold my breath to take them. Burping.
