EcoOmega Soft Gel Pearls are a unique, environmentally sustainable Omega-3 Marine Oil. Made with Calamari (squid) oil, this superior Omega-3 supplement offers a whopping 250mg of DHA and 125mg of EPA daily. This gives you more of the Omega-3 essential fatty acids (“the good fats”) than a 2008 report found most important for a variety of health issues, including heart and brain health and general well being. Omega-3’s are even excellent for your skin, eyes, hair and nails! Nearly 60% of the Omega-3 oil found in Eco-Omega is DHA, much more than found in Omega-3’s from other sources. These tiny soft gel pearls can be chewed or are easy enough to swallow!*
EcoOmega: Environmentally Sustainable Omega-3 Pearls
It seems that most every health expert recommends taking fish oil. Omega-3 fish oils have become very popular, so popular, in fact, that concerns are being raised about the survival of certain fish species.
Why You Need Omega-3 Every Day.
Omega-3 cannot be made by the body. You must get it from food or supplements. Omega-3 is highly concentrated in the brain, heart, eyes and nervous system.
Two key types of Omega-3 fatty acids are EPA and, especially, DHA. One serving of EcoOmega contains 250 mg of DHA and 125 mg of EPA. Traditional fish oils have much more EPA than DHA . In 2008, the Point Institute of Nutritional Health rated DHA more important than EPA for twice as many health conditions. These included general well-being, cadiovascular and eye health and brain acuity.*
A Pearl Sized Softgel… and More.
Forget oversized Omega-3 capsules. EcoOmega comes in a tiny soft-gel pearl. You can chew or easily swallow the pearls whole – up to 5 at a time.
EcoOmega: SUSTAINABLE Marine Oil Pearls
EcoOmega contains sustainable food grade Calamari oil. Calamari is naturally high in DHA and has a higher concentration of DHA than popular Omega-3 fish oils. Nearly 60% of the Omega-3 in EcoOmega is DHA. EcoOmega Marine Oil is a very pure, clean and effective source of DHA and EPA.
Certified Environmentally Sustainable by Friend of the Sea
In 1987, the WCED commission of the United Nations defined sustainable development as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” In 2006, a non-profit organization called “Friend of the Sea” began to audit and certify companies that fish or farm fish for sustainablilty. Certified companies must adhere to strict sustainable activities. In 2010, the calamari oil in EcoOmega was certified as sustainable by Friend of the Sea.
Calamari (squid) is very different from other Omega-3 marine sources (tuna, cod, anchovy, or krill). Rapid reproductive age and lifespan are keys for population sustainablility. Squid reach reproduction age quickly and die after spawning, typically in less than 450 days. In contrast, the lifespan or reproductive age of yellow fin tuna, cod, anchovy and krill can be measured in years, and even decades. Long lifespan and slow reproduction, combined with aggressive fishing, can jeopardize the populations of certain species over time. Because of its short reproductive age, calamari are naturally more sustainable.
To further ensure sustainability, EcoOmega oil is pressed from the trimmings of calamari already caught for food. Calamari are not fished strictly for their oil. And EcoOmega calamari fishing methods are environmentally sensitive. There is little “by-catch” of other marine animals.
Virtually Free of Lead and Mercury.
Calamari live fast and die young – their entire life lasts slightly more than one year, much shorter than fish such as cod or salmon. The lifespan of calamari lessens their exposure to lead, mercury and other ocean pollutants found in other fish. EcoOmega is virtually free of lead and mercury (no more than .0001 mg of either per serving) or other contaminants.
A hint of natural fruit flavor in EcoOmega will freshen your mouth when the pearls are chewed. Take 3-5 pearls once daily with a meal.
