What is an Omega 3?

Omega-3s are an important, but often missing element of the American diet.

What is the Source?

Eskimo-3® is eco-friendly and obtained only from non-endangered species of fish. The source of the fish used in Eskimo 3® are harvested from the cold waters of the north Pacific in areas not subjected to over-fishing issues.

More on Eskimo-3®

Unlike many other fish oil products, Eskimo 3 has the natural and healthy ratio of EPA and DHA. Other products on the market have artificially concentrated amounts of EPA and DHA, which can make them become unstable and go rancid. This is not the case with Eskimo-3's ingredients.

Suggested Usage: Take 3 softgels with meals one to three times daily.

Ingredients: Each serving of 3 softgetls provide 1.5 grams of Eskimo®-3 brand Fish Oil providing 525mg of omega-3 fatty acids including and estimated 240 mg EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and 150 mg DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).

Other Ingredients: gelatin, vegetable glycerin, mixed tocopherols (antioxidant), natural rosemary flavor, natural lime flavor, soy lecithin, ascorbyl palmitate (antioxidant)

Also available in Double-Strength Eskimo-3 Pure EFA (1000 mg. Softgels)

Additional Omega 3 Fatty Acid Research Details

Overall Cardiovascular Support

A meta-analysis7 of 11 randomized controlled trials conducted between 1966 and 1999 and including 7,951 patients found that dietary and supplemental fatty acids provided nutritional support for overall cardiovascular health.*1 Evidence for the protective effects of fish in women comes from the US Nurses' Health Study, which analyzed the diets of 84,688 female nurses and found that higher consumption levels of fish oil were associated with increased support of cardiovascular health.*2

Serum Lipids

A review of human studies concluded that approximately 4 grams per day of omega-3 fatty acids helped block the absorption of dietary cholesterol and maintained levels of serum blood lipids already within normal range, including low-density lipoprotein (LDL) already within normal range and high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels.*3

Healthy Blood Pressure

Omega-3 fatty acids help maintain healthy blood pressure readings that are already within the normal range.* A meta-analysis of 31 trials and a total of 1,356 patients found that 5.6 grams per day of fish oil provided support of healthy blood vessels.*4

Joint Support

Dietary supplementation with fish oil containing omega-3 fatty acids has been shown to provide nutritional support for healthy joints.* Several small studies have found that fish oil at dosages of at least 3 grams per day (one study used 18 grams per day) significantly support joint health and function.*5,6 These beneficial effects were more common in patients receiving higher dosages of fish oil and were not apparent until fish oil had been consumed for at least 12 weeks.*6,7

In an open label three year fish oil study, 31 subjects were asked to self-randomize into two groups. The treatment group (n=18) drank bottled juice with fish oil for a daily intake of 4 to 4.5 grams of EPA and DHA, while the other group (n=13) served as the control with no treatment. Data was collected at 3 months intervals for the duration of the study. Similar to previous research, 72 percent of the subjects in the fish oil group were experienced improved joint support compared to 31 percent in the control group.* The fish oil group also experienced healthy plasma lipid levels already within normal limits.*8

Healthy Vision

Dietary fat may provide nutritional support of lens cell membrane composition and function.* In a clinical study of women aged 52 to 73 years were selected from the Nurses' Health Study cohort. Four hundred forty women participated in a baseline (1993-95) and a follow-up (1998-2000) eye examination. Intakes of total fat and selected fatty acids were calculated as the average intake from five food frequency questionnaires that were collected between 1980 and baseline. The results showed intake of omega-3 fatty acids was positively associated with support of health nuclear density.*9

Mood

Research has established that DHA and EPA play a fundamental role in brain structure and function.* Epidemiological and cross-sectional studies have also identified a role for long-chain omega-3 fatty acids in the support of healthy mood.* In the past ten years, there have been 12 mood intervention studies using omega-3 fatty acid. The majority of these studies administered omega-3 fatty acid supplements as adjunct therapy. The studies have been conducted over 4 to 16 weeks and have often included small cohorts. In six of the studies, individuals reported a positive outcome following supplementation with DHA and EPA.*10 A small Israeli study found that administration of EPA and DHA improved the behavioral variables associated with test taking stress.*11

Skin Health

Diets rich in essential fatty acids, such as those found in Eskimo-3® fish oil, provide significant health benefits for skin.* Several studies have shown that supplemental fish oil helps retain skin appearance and elasticity after exposure to sunlight (UV radiation) and helps in healthy wound healing.*12-15

Bioavailability

Published clinical studies have shown that supplementation with the omega-3 fatty acids supports healthy cell membranes.* A recent study compared the effect of oily fish consumption to fish oil supplements on red blood cell (RBC) membranes. Healthy premenopausal female volunteers were randomly assigned to consume a daily average of 485 mg eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids from 2 servings (12 ounces) of salmon or albacore tuna per week or from 1-2 capsules each day. After four months, the EPA+DHA levels within RBC membranes significantly increased in both groups.* However, the fish oil supplement group experienced a more rapid rise of EPA and DHA.*16
