Omega-3’s in General
Arachidonic acid is a 20 carbon omega-6 fatty acid with 4 double bonds. Omega-6 fats are polyunsaturated with the first double-bond beginning with the 6th carbon atom from the methyl end of the molecule. An 18 carbon Omega-3 fatty acid with 3 double bonds. Alpha-linolenic acid is found in flaxseed and other plant oils. Note how just 3 double-bonds alters the chemical structure, making alpha-linolenic acid much more highly folded than an 18 carbon saturated fat.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is a type of omega-3 that is essential for healthy immune function, cardiac function, mood, joint, eye, and brain health. Docosahexaenoic acid is also an omega-3 fatty acid. DHA is crucial for neurological and visual development in the human fetus and newborn, and is found in high concentration in the brain. EPA fish oil and DHA fish oil are only found in seafood and marine algae.
Some people can convert EPA and DHA from ALA, but many cannot and therefore often times people may not receive the full benefits of omega-3s from only consuming plant based products. Even for people who can convert ALA into EPA and DHA, the conversion rate is very small. Only 5% of ALA can be synthesized to EPA. Less than 0.5% of ALA can be synthesized to DHA.
Omega-3 fish oil is an anti-inflammatory molecule. Omega-3s may improve many conditions such as: high blood pressure, arthritis pain, inflammation and depression. Omega-6 is an inflammatory molecule and competes with omega-3 for the same chemical receptors in the body. Omega-6 is important in the body as it promotes inflammation but it is abundant in western diets. Many people may find it beneficial to lower their omega-6 levels and increase their intake in omega-3.
How we make OmegaBrite
The fish oils used in OmegaBrite originate from sardines and anchovies from the cold, clean waters off the coast of Chile and Peru.
OmegaBrite starts from small anchovies and sardines off the coast of Chile and Peru. The oil from these small, pure fish is then distilled and concentrated. Meticulous testing is completed before and after each stage of manufacturing. At all stages, nitrogen blanketing and nitrogen flushing is utilized to prevent oxidation and keep OmegaBrite tasting great. The oil, capsules, and then finished product are transported with the highest care, often utilizing refrigerated trucks and cooling blankets to ensure customer satisfaction. After even more testing and quality care the final orange box is delivered to your door step.
As part of our strict quality control program, we test every batch of OmegaBrite for dioxins, PCB’s, Mercury and other heavy metals. OmegaBrite test results meet or exceed the purity standards of California Proposition 65 and the Council for Responsible Nutrition.
Oxidization can affect the taste and smell of omega-3 oil. OmegaBrite takes great care to prevent oxidation. From using cooling blankets, to refrigerated trucks, to nitrogen blanketing and nitrogen flushing, we are leaders in the industry in preventing oxidation.
No, however we are third-party tested by Consumer Lab and members of the IFOS program.
OmegaBrite is tested at key points during the manufacturing process to ensure purity and omega-3 concentration. The finished product is also sent for independent testing by ConsumerLab.com, and the IFOS program with the results published on their website. OmegaBrite also tests the finished product every six months for three years in an independent stability study.
