Interesting facts about our Omega-3 Concentrates

Our partner Golden Omega is the only producer of Omega 3 concentrates strategically located in the middle of the richest fishing ground for anchovy in the world (South Pacific Ocean).

The Anchovy (Engraulis Ringens) is a cold water fish which lives in the South Pacific Ocean, in front of the Peruvian and North Chilean waters. This part of the Ocean is regularly visited by the Humboldt Current coming from the Antarctic which makes it very rich in nutrients.

Anchovies from the South Pacific Ocean naturally contain a high level of EPA and DHA (normally around 25-30%) in their fat, and live a very short life (around 15 to 18 months) compared to other fish species and therefore accumulate less contaminants or heavy metals naturally present in the waters.

Golden Omega Fish Oil Concentrates are Orivo Certified as “Pure Anchovy from the South Pacific”, in addition to a sustainability certification (Friend of the Sea) which guarantees that the fishing is strictly controlled under quota systems and the biomass has remained very stable along the years.

OptiMSM® and Suphur: Nature's Beauty Mineral

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is a rich source of sulphur (34% by weight) and a key component of collagen that supports the skin’s structural framework. It is also a building block of keratin, the main structural constituent of hair and nails.

 In recent years, Bergstrom Nutrition, the manufacturers of OptiMSM® has employed the most cutting-edge technology to research how OptiMSM®® works to support healthy, younger skin. Findings have demonstrated that OptiMSM®® may reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and elasticity and provide overall support to the structural integrity of the skin. Furthermore OptiMSM® benefits may also help the skin, hair and nails to regain and retain a more youthful appearance, with only 1 gram daily (study awaiting for publication).

Product Highlight: Ester-C®

Ester-C® Calcium Ascorbate -Threonate was discovered back in the early 80s, when its inventor, an ever-curious doctor and scientist set out on a quest for the first stomach-friendly Vitamin. The result of his research is what we know today as Ester-C®, a unique form of Vitamin C.

Clinical studies show that Ester-C® increases vitamin C levels in white blood cells, which are essential part of the immune system. Ester-C® stays in the body longer than regular vitamin C, up to 24 hours. The naturally occurring metabolites in the formula are the reason why it lasts longer than generic Vitamin C. Ester-C® has neutral pH, therefore designed to be non-acidic so it can be taken all year long and in a variety of application and formats. All the EFSA Claims for Vitamin C can be used for Ester-C®, with the benefits and advantages of this patented ingredient.

To download all the clinical studies and learn more, please visit our dedicated  Ester-C® page or contact us. Please remember to login as a registered customer before accessing the page.
