Product Spotlight: Salmon Oil

The benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids have long been touted by doctors the world over.  They've been said to reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and even slow the development of plaque in arteries.  Today we've decided to shine the spotlight on our wonderful Salmon Oil from Vital Choice.

According to the EPA, FDA, and independent scientists, wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon are among the purest of all ocean fish.  This unique Wild Sockeye Salmon Oil comes from freshly harvested Alaskan Sockeye salmon and is purified using molecular distillation, removing mercury and man-made chemical contaminants without affecting the structure or value of its omega-3 fatty acids.  Its brilliant orange color comes from astaxanthin: the carotenoid-class antioxidant that wild salmon acquire by eating krill and other zooplankton.

The long-chain omega-3s (EPA and DHA) found only in seafood (especially fatty fish) and in supplemental fish and krill oils are essential to human life and support optimal health in key organs, systems, and life stages.  Some of the things helped by fish oils include:

  • Aging

  • Vision

  • Metabolism

  • Inflammation

  • Cardiovascular

  • Fetal development

  • Skin, hair, and nails

  • Joints and movement

  • Cognition (thinking), attention, mood, and memory

    You should consult with your physician before taking doses substantially higher than recommended, or taking any supplement if you are pregnant, diabetic, allergic to fish or iodine, have a diagnosed cardiac condition or immune disorder.

    That being said, the oil from Vital Choice is/has:

    • Gluten-free

    • Fish gelatin softgels

    • Organic lemon oil added

    • Whole, natural, sustainable

    • Moecularly distilled for purity

    • Purity and potency certified by NSF

    • Sustainably harvested wild Alaskan sockeye salmon oil

    • 600mg omega-3s per serving (with 240mg EPA + 220mg DHA)

    • No artificial preservatives, color, dairy, starch, wheat, yeast, sugar, or soy protein

      All in all, we love this stuff.  Most of us here at Urban Farmacy take it at least a few days per week, and we have some real diehards who are daily dosers.  Give it a shot, I'm sure you'll love the way you feel.
