Secrets of pharmaceutical grade fish oil

Omega 3 fatsare part of the cell membrane of every single one of them. Providing an adequate supply ofOmega- 3 to the body is critical to promoting and maintaining optimal health.Now lets understand that good fat is actually good. The 1980s are over. We should all be awarenow that not all fat is bad. There are in fact good fats and bad fats. Omega 3s are part of a classof fats known as Essential Fatty Acids or "EFAs." These are good fats, we need them. Essentialfatty acids, which are polyunsaturated fats, are called essential because they cannot bemanufactured by the body. They must be obtained from the food we eat. Other common EFAs areOmega 6 and Omega 9. Less common are Omega 7 (sea buckthorn) and theres also Omega 5.In an average diet most people get adequate amounts of the important EFAs Omega 6 and 9.Often, as much as is needed by the body or more. However, our dietary intake of the critical EFAOmega-3 is far below the amount needed by the body for optimal health.According to current conceptions of human nutrition, most nutritional scientists claim that ourbodies should maintain roughly a 2-1 ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6. That there should be abouttwo Omega 3s to every one Omega 6 in the body. According to others we should have at least aone to one ratio.In actuality though many people have roughly a 15-1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3, and some asmuch as 20-1. In most cases it is not the result of excessive Omega 6 intake causing this upside-down ratio but an extremely inadequate Omega 3 intake. That is to say that our Omega 6 intake isnot typically high. For most people it is around where its supposed to be. Our Omega 3 intakehowever is staggeringly low. Our extremely insufficient Omega 3 intake keeps the ratio of Omega3 to Omega 6 completely the opposite of what our bodies need to function optimally.Some examples: To maintain good health an ideal supply of Omega 3 EFAs in the body is notonly helpful, it is principle in preventing and aiding a large number of common health concerns. Abasic internet search on the benefits of Omega 3 yields numbers of studies published in majormedical and nutritional periodicals such as The New England Journal of Medicine, PsychiatryRes., The Journal of Affective- Disorders, The American Journal of Clinical- Nutrition... Pointingout the benefits Omega 3 has on modern health conditions, many of the studies demonstratepronounced improvement for some common problems.-Omega 3 fats are a natural and powerful anti-inflammatory. As a result, highly concentratedOmega 3 is recommended by Doctors for Rheumatoid Arthritis (an auto-immune disorder in which
  2. 2. the body attacks itself and presents inflammation or swelling, and pain).-Doctors and nutritionists have documented positive results from high concentration Omega 3used to aid focus and concentration in patients with ADD.-Omega 3 fats have been extremely effective in naturally lowering blood pressure, triglycerides,and bad cholesterol, as well as for improving overall heart health. Large population studiessuggest that omega-3 in the diet, primarily from fish, helps protect against stroke caused byplaque buildup and blood clots in the arteries that lead to the brain.-Studies have linked Omega 3s to relief for intestinal disorders such as IBS, Crohns and Ceoliacsdiseases.-Omega 3s have been shown to promote healthy brain function, to help provide mental clarity, tohelp with skin conditions and more.Tracking the research and benefits. The nutrition industry web-tool Healthnotes applies starratings to indicate an amount of scientific evidence to demonstrate a natural products ability tohelp a specific health issue, or to provide needed support for healthy living. 1-3 stars are givenbased on the results of studys published in a reputable health journal or magazine.1-star in healthnotes means there is some scientific data indicating a product will help a certainneed, but limited. Some evidence is there but is preliminary or inconclusive. Using this product forthat problem might help.2-stars indicates there is a fair amount of scientific data that a product will help a certain need.That it will help, has been shown to help, or is worth trying.3-stars means that there is a substantial body of reliable and consistent scientific data that thisproduct will help this need and its use is highly recommended.Star ratings for Omega 3. Heres some Healthnotes findings from published studies on the benefitsof Omega 3 and various common health conditions1 Star - Alzheimers Disease, Angina, Type 1 & 2 Diabetes, Glaucoma, Photo sensitivity,Migraines, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Pre-Eclampsia, Dysmenorrhea, Endometriosis.2 Stars - High Cholesterol, Depression, ADD/ADHD, Bi-Polar Disorder, Anxiety, Asthma,Atherosclerosis, Breast-feeding support, Lupus, Raynaudss Disease, Macular Degeneration,Multiple Sclerosis, Schizophrenia, PMS, Pre and Post Surgery health, Cardiac Arrhythmia, CysticFibrosis, Eczema, Heart Attack, Ulcerative Colitis.3 Stars - Crohns Disease, High Blood Pressure, High Triglycerides, Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis.Anecdotes. After taking Omega 3 supplements people have said their doctor told them their bloodpressure is lower. After giving a child Omega 3 supplements consistently, parents of children withADD received a call from school that their childs attentiveness and behavior had improved (othernutrients like magnesium or L-theanine can also be important to help with excitability and
  3. 3. calmness).Improvements can be seen even within one to three weeks of consistent supplementing. However,its important to note that improving health through nutrition is a slow, natural process. Whentaking nutritional supplements to assist with a health problem the body requires unwaveringconsistency, and time to build up its stores of a micro-nutrient. The body will begin to rely on thesteady presence of the beneficial product and put it to use. After this improvement can be seen.One to three months is normal for this building process (cases vary).Bad fat is bad. Saturated fats from animal products increase the levels of blood cholesterol in thebody. They are high in Arachadonic acid and when over-consumed hinder or interfere with theimmune system. This can lead to cardiovascular disease, inflammatory conditions and dementia.Even more damaging are trans-fatty acids (partially hydrogenated vegetable oils used inmargarine and vegetable shortening) which, in addition to their own destructive properties andresults interfere with the normal metabolism of good fats.Omega 3 vs. Fish oil. Not all fish oil supplements give us with what we need. To explain, we mustunderstand that fish oil does not benefit us at all! Not even a little. Its only the Omega 3 contentof the fish oil that benefits us. Fish oil is simply a carrier for the Omega 3 fats. Nothing more.Omega 3 fats are healthy for our bodies, not fish oil. Once more, the Omega 3 in the fish oilbenefits us, the fish oil itself does not.As with any nutritional supplement, to choose a quality fish oil product you have to read the label.A good, or high quality fish oil product will have at least a fifty percent ratio of Omega 3 to fish oil-(aka marine lipid concentrate). What this means is, even though all of the oil extracted from a fishis fish oil, not all of that fish oil is Omega 3. To explain further, if we squeeze fish in a press andgather all of the oil, the fish oil, in a cup then 100% of what is in our cup is fish oil. But not all ofthat fish oil is Omega 3.In a high quality fish oil product at least half of the total amount of fish oil should be in the form ofOmega 3. For instance, if a product label reads that it contains 1000 mg of fish oil per capsule,then we want to see on the same label 500 mg Omega 3, at least. Like this:Total fish oil (marine lipid concentrate):- 1000 mgTotal Omega 3 (EPA,DHA, ALA/other): - 500 mgThis is a fifty percent ratio. Fifty percent of the total fish oil content of that capsule is Omega 3.This is an example of a high quality product. Below fifty percent isnt.Since its only the Omega-3 content of the fish oil that provides benefit, not the fish oil itself, wewant a high ratio of Omega 3 to fish oil.While a Fish-oil product may have printed on the label "1,000 mg of fish oil per capsule," what wereally want to know is how much Omega 3 fat is in that 1,000 mg of fish oil.A fish oil product that has 1000 mg of fish oil per capsule but only 100 mg, 150, mg or 200 mg ofOmega 3 is common. Theyre easy to find for a cheap price at a supermarket. But in these
  4. 4. products we consume between 800 and 900 mg of just fish oil with each capsule. This doesntbenefit us at all, 80-90% of this product does nothing for us. Of course the price is cheap. The partwe gain benefit from, Omega 3, is minimal. Commensurate with what weve paid. Its a lot of fishoil to consume to only benefit from the 1/10 - 1/5 that actually has Omega 3 fats. If we needed1200 mg of Omega 3/day, wed have to take 6-12 capsules a day from brands with these ratios.Apart from obligating us to take a lot more capsules than necessary when using better products,products at 10-20% ratios are inexpensive because they lag behind the latest industry standardsand advancements. With a very low cost product we also consider which fish the fish oil comesfrom, as well as, the source of the fish, molecular distillation, perhaps the absence of any qualitystandard at all. In the end, the cost of a fish oil product will be more if it is a high concentration andif it is a product that offers the best in quality standards. Fortunately, most health store retailersoffer discounts.The highest Omega 3/fish oil ratios the market produces is around 70%. In a 1000 mg capsulethere can be around 700 mg of Omega 3 and 300 mg of just fish oil.The Omega 3 fatty acid is able to be acquired by our bodies only from dietary sources, vegetableand marine. It breaks down into three subcategories EPA, DHA, and ALA. EPA and DHA,Eicosapentaonic acid and Decohexaonic acid, are chemically long-chain fatty acids. These areobtained in their long-chain state only from marine sources. Specifically from the oil of certain fishor from marine algae. ALA, Alpha Linolenic acid, is chemically a short-chain fatty acid, and isobtained from marine sources or from vegetable sources such as flax seeds.The main benefits of Omega 3s are in the long-chain fatty acids EPA and DHA. Nearly all thebenefits we seek to get from fish oil supplements, the ones we read about (all of the benefits listedin Healthnotes) are in the Omega 3 long-chain fatty acids EPA and DHA only. The Omega 3 short-chain fatty acid ALA can be directly beneficial for many health concerns, especially for skin andhair. However, the studies uncovering the benefits we read and hear about are showing resultsmainly of the long-chain fatty acids EPA and DHA taken from marine sources. Meaning from fishoil. Fish oil based Omega 3 is where the main positive results are coming from, not vegetablesource Omega 3 which can only directly provide the short-chain Omega 3 ALA.Converting ALA isnt enough. In order to get the main benefits of Omega 3 from vegetablesources, ALA must be converted to EPA. Although the body will convert ALA to EPA, it does sovery inefficiently. The most liberal reports on the benefits of vegetable based Omega-3s (ALA)show only about 3-5% of it being converted into a long-chain fatty acid (EPA). Some studies showthat only about 1-3% will be effectively converted. This means that to get the main benefits (asomega 3 EPA), the volume of vegetable-sourced Omega 3 we would have to eat or take in andthen convert is almost virtually beyond reach.Despite recent trends, in order to truly benefit using vegetable Omega 3 such as Salba Seed,Sage, flaxseed etc, wed have to eat like an undomesticated equine (a wild horse). Otherwisethere just wont be enough Omega 3.Vegans should keep up the good work. Eat flax seed and flax seed oil, evening- primrose oil,borage oil, avocados, dark green leafy vegs, walnuts, Salba seed etc. The main vegetablesources of Omega 3. With the right amounts these can be very helpful to maintain optimal health
  5. 5. for an average healthy person. Theyre also helpful for many health concerns too. But, if you needto assist some of the more major health concerns that Omega 3s help, this approach may not benearly enough. For most health conditions EPA and DHA are the form of Omega 3 the body needsto benefit from.The options are:-Though vegans dont eat fish, you might consider taking a fish oil capsule (the most effective wayto boost EPA/DHA quickly).-Next, DHA is available from marine algae both as food and as a supplement (the dose is low andrequires taking more).-Lastly, you can attempt to eat enough vegetable Omega 3, ALA, for the body to convert intosufficient EPA and DHA to help. Though for the reasons already mentioned this may be hard topull off in any practical way.Fish and fish oil are our main viable sources for obtaining the really helpful micro-nutrients knownas Omega 3.Though, eating fish doesnt always do. Omega 3 is most often needed in highly concentratedlevels to get enough to meet our bodies goals. Most people just dont eat fish often enough to getthe high concentrations required to realize the health benefits omega 3s provide.Also, although most nutritionists and doctors will recommend eating fish, current recommendationsare in moderation. Due to high levels of neuro-toxins found in most fish (mercury, PCBs,cadmium, and lead mainly) only around three servings per week is advised. These amounts wontgive us the levels of Omega 3s necessary for boosting our health. Fish oil supplements areconcentrated and have many times the Omega 3s we would get by eating fish. Even if we ate fisha lot.Toxins and Waters. Its best to use a fish oil supplement that has had molecular distillation. This isan excellent way to assure the absence of toxins. (Its important that the distillation method useslow heat, high vacuum pressure, as opposed to standard molecular distillation which uses highheat in the distillation process. High temperatures can chemically alter the oil and/or ruin it. In theformer the effect is the same but the oil remains in tact.) It seems reputable, or higher quality,suppliers do it this way.It is also best to use fish from clean ocean waters to get the healthiest and highest Omega 3 fish.As well as another layer of protection against toxins. Quality fish oil from reputable brands use fishtaken from the deep cold waters off of the coast of Peru or Chile (Hoki is fished off the coast ofNew Zealand). Migration can have these fish taken from the Nordic Seas too. But, despite somecompanies claims this is uncommon. The Nordic Seas are almost always the source for cod, forcod liver oil, no matter the brand. These are the places considered to be among the cleanestwaters in the in the world.Which fish? Makers of fish oil supplements produce viable means for getting sufficient quantities ofOmega 3 with capsules and liquids. But it does matter which fish they use! Its best to use fish oil
  6. 6. products that are made only from small-body deep-water fish.Sardines, anchovy and mackerel are the best choice. Theyre highest in omega 3 & low in toxins.These are considered the best fish for both categories. Herring and Hoki are excellent too. (Thesefish are all extremely high in Omega 3, and have too short a life-cycle to absorb a lot of the heavymetal toxins from the ocean).Salmon oil, cod liver oil, and krill oil, are good sources of Omega 3s as well. Salmon and cod arelarger body longer life-cycle fish and toxins can therefore be a bigger concern, so a high qualityremoval of toxins should be verified. Cod liver oil is high in vitamins A and D both of which canoverdose (especially A) so limited dosing may be required. For krill (a type of shell-fish), there isno consistent evidence to support the theory that it is a superior source of Omega 3 than sardines,anchovy, or mackerel.Ingredients in a fish oil product should be limited to: the fish oil itself, natural vitamin E (protectionagainst oxidation), and the ingredients of the capsule. Or natural flavoring. Nothing else.Typically from lesser known suppliers fish oil products are often found with lots of otheringredients. Careful wording, and phrases like "beneficial anti-oxidants," lead us to believe that it isfor our benefit. But extra ingredients like rosemary and oregano or excess scents or flavors, canbe used in an inexpensive fish oil product to mask the smell or taste of cheap or even rancid oil.Oil that wasnt processed quickly, or thats traveled long distances before processing, may needextra antioxidants and scents to hide odor or to slow the natural oxidation process (apparentlymuch more than is required under more ideal circumstances). Processing can get delayed, andraw product shipped long distances in order to facilitate combining monetary resources of multiplesmaller companies or makers of low cost product.To save costs, using generic varieties of fish, or no molecular distillation are other short cuts thatcan be common in cheap product.Higher quality product can have a higher cost to the manufacturer. Dealing with suppliers whoprocess immediately after the ships arrive in port and who get premium Omega 3 fish can costmore.When researching fish oil products it becomes clear that the most respected fish oil products havethe same few ingredients: The fish oil itself, a little vitamin e (tocopheral), and the capsule. Theseare supposed to be in there. Nothing more. This can be why some products cost more than others.Enteric coating (e/c) of a product means that the capsule has been given a special outer layerunaffected by acidic pH. This means the capsule will not break down (open) in the stomach wherethe pH is acidic. The enteric coating is however affected by alkaline pH and will break down andrelease the capsules contents in the small intestine where the pH is alkaline (specifically in theduodenum, the first part of the small intestine, just after the stomach).Some have said that the process of enteric coating is designed to mask inferior oil. This iscertainly a possibility. It may in fact be so in some cases (unfamiliar brands, mass-market, low costproducts). Respectable supplement manufacturers though are not likely employ such a tactic to
  7. 7. sell product. In most cases they wouldnt need to and, if caught, they risk alienating a hard woncustomer base, or damaging a well established reputation.Although most manufacturers of high quality fish oil dont enteric coat their capsule it is reasonablethat some do. A high quality fish oil supplement usually also means a high concentration of fish oil.This can result in minor burping for people with poor digestion. This is temporary, but undesirable.For the benefit of those people some companies will enteric coat a capsule to help avoidproblems.Taste and smell are no problem. Quality fish oil should not taste or smell fishy. At all. If its freshfish oil made from fresh fish processed right away, it should be a slightly oily liquid without taste.Unless flavor is added. On its own it should taste like nothing, like water. (Especially aftermolecular-distillation.) The oily consistency should be a bit thinner than olive oil. Fairly loose.At an outdoor fish market the often familiar fish odor is a result of the oxidation of the fish. The fishgetting old and beginning to turn rancid, and is definitely not fresh.In general, when buying fresh fish it should not have an unpleasant or even a fishy smell. It shouldsmell mainly like the ocean. A well kept fish counter at a local market that carries fresh fish doesntusually have a fishy smell. It usually has an ocean smell.Its the same with fish oil. A high quality fresh fish oil product whether as a capsule or a liquidshould have no smell or taste except when there is flavor added. Especially when molecular-distilled, which is the case with nearly all major suppliers of fish oil products.There is no need to avoid a liquid fish oil. Especially from a reputable manufacturer. Whenflavored it is just little more thick than water and will generally have a pleasant taste. Theresusually lemon, orange, and lemon lime flavor. Bear in mind though that "lemon flavor" does notmean lemonade flavor (sugar flavor).Liquids are the best way to go if you need high doses of Omega 3s. A teaspoon of liquid fish oilcan often be the equal of 4-6 capsules for the same amount of Omega 3 (and 8 capsules fromsome companies). When trying a liquid for the first time, smelling it can help. There will be a nicearoma to start you off.How much do you need to take, for General Maintenance. For an average healthy adult taking adaily fish oil supplement in amounts ranging between 500 mg and 1500 mg Omega 3 is a goodprotocol for general health and maintenance of the body. This amount is of Omega 3 specificallythough and not just fish oil. Narrowing this range will depend on how much Omega 3 is in the diet.Also, the amounts of Omega 3s found in supplements vary widely and so the number of capsulesneeded to acquire a desired dose will depend on the strength of the product.In the case of an average healthy adult, if dietary intake of Omega 3 is very little to none, thentaking between 1000 mg and 1500 mg of Omega 3 in supplement form is a good average range tobe within in order to promote and maintain optimal health. Less is needed, 500 - 1000 mg, whenOmega 3 is more present in the diet. Again, this will vary from one brand to another but this is agood range.
  8. 8. How much do you need to take for Specific Help. When targeting or assisting with the treatment ofhealth conditions it is best to get counseling from a nutritional health professional.Research indicates that amounts varying from 2000 - 4000 mg a day of Omega 3 specifically maybe needed depending on the condition. In some cases much more is used. It is advisable whentaking more than about 3500 - 4000 mg of Omega 3 specifically (not just fish oil) per dayconsistently, it is best to do so with the guidance of a nutritional professional. People with heartdisease or diabetes should only take high-doses of daily fish oil with professional guidance.These amounts of Omega 3 are fairly high, in the range or 10,000 mg of fish oil. What this meansis that most people will not approach the upper limits of advised intake with normal or even aboveaverage doses.How to take. As a general rule when taking supplements as well as Omega 3s and fish oil takingthem with a meal is helpful for better dissolution and uptake of the nutrients. That means moreeffective usage. Not harmful without a meal but better with (being physically active helps too).Drug interactions. The nutritional industry web-tool Healthnotes indicates that there are no contra-indications or known adverse reactions to taking Omega 3 with any prescription drugs.Having fish for dinner. As for eating fish, the small-body deep-water fish mentioned above,Sardines, Anchovies and Mackerel, (as well as Herring, Hoki and krill) are all very high Omega 3very low toxin fish. Higher in Omega 3 and lower in toxins than any larger body fish. For largerfish, Salmon is considered to be the best for high Omega 3 and fairly low toxin fish. Cod is alsoconsidered to be better than most.As for eating other types of fish, Omega 3 contents vary, and toxin levels vary as well. Three timesper week is recommended to be the most. Tuna is known to be extremely high in toxinsparticularly in mercury (it is likely the highest of all fish). Its intake should be limited to once aweek or less.Brand name products. Taking a supplement has become the main way to get the beneficialOmega 3 long-chain fatty acids EPA & DHA. Typically, most mass market or generic brands dontmeet the standards weve touched on. But, there are many clean, high quality, high concentration,fish oil supplements on the market in capsule and liquid forms that do...Solgar Vitamin & Herb; Zahlers (kosher); Nutri-Supreme Research (kosher); Now Foods; SourceNaturals; Renew Life; Carlson Labs; Nordic Naturals; Natures Way are a few of the nutritionalsupplement manufacturers who make high quality fish oil products and meet (or exceed) all of theabove standards. These are some of the best brands out there. There are others that may belongin this list as well. But, these manufacturers all have very good product and are among the largest,most affordable, and most available in stores.Storing and keeping. Fish oil capsules should not be refrigerated but must be kept away fromdirect sunlight and not placed near a heat source. Always refrigerate liquid fish oil after opening.Form. Determining if your Omega 3s are in triglyceride or ethyl ester form shouldnt be a majorconcern. There is a leaning in general that favors triglyceride but not a consensus. There are
  9. 9. experts in favor of each. It seems both forms have value, and good reasons for being used. Thediscussion mainly deals with the bodys ability to utilize and convert Omega 3 fats into usablecomponents, about product stability, and about concentrations. But, most products sold in storesare ethyl esters. In general most brands dont offer a triglyceride form Omega 3 (Which is probablywhy most people have never even heard of these two terms. That, and because manufacturersdont print which form the fish oil is in on their labels).As well, the research we read and hear about encouraging us to take Omega 3 fish oilsupplements is based on studies that have been conducted using the same products and evenbrands that we buy when we go to our natural health stores. That is to say the great majority ofthis research was done using the ethyl ether form of fish oil which is typically what we buy as well.(For performing a research study a product may have been gotten from the source supplier of abranded product rather than from a specific brand.)Despite infomercials and internet ads insisting that the form theyre promoting is the only one thatworks, the main thing to know is that both forms provide our bodys with the critically importantEPA & DHA Omega 3 long-chain fatty acids. In short, though one may be better, both are good.Both will work.Overdose. In general, and in most cases, one cannot overdose on Omega 3 (or fish oil). You canwaste money though. If you consume large quantities of Omega 3 fish oil but your body doesntneed it, even lets say to help a health condition (meaning if you take considerably more than yourequire), the body will get rid of it and evacuate what it doesnt need, unused. It is best to takewhat your body needs, not more.(Though most people do not self diagnose or treat, or engage in taking really high doses, itsimportant to note that mega-doses of Omega 3s can act as a blood thinner. If you have thin blood,Thrombocytopenia, or are on blood thinners do not exceed average recommended doses ofOmega 3s without professional guidance.)History. As a point of historical perspective. Fish oil was first uncovered as a major health benefitwhen researchers observed that the Inuit and Eskimo eat a diet extremely high in fat, animal fatsand whale blubber (apparently a favorite food), and yet have a small fraction of the heart diseaseof average adults in the Western world. For the Inuit and Eskimo heart disease averages between1% and 3 % of the population, and averages as low as 1% in some areas. Compared, to between50% and 60% for most of the Western population, and even higher in some Western culturalcenters.Once significant research was conducted it was uncovered that the Omega 3 fats in all of the fishand marine products eaten by the Inuit and Eskimo protected their hearts and is what kept theirincidence of heart disease so low. Even when their average diet had extremely low amounts ofcalories from plant and vegetable sources and well more than 50% came from fats, since their dietconsisted of food items that provided them consistently with extremely high amounts of Omega3s, their hearts remained healthy.Conclusion. The benefits of taking Omega 3 fish oil are well documented, Doctor and Nutritionistrecommended. Its conclusive, do it consistently. Heres to your health!
