5 Star Rating Fish Oil Supplement 

The body needs fatty acids to survive and is able to make all but two of them: linoleic acid (LA), in the omega-6 family, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in the omega-3 family. These two fatty acids must be supplied by the diet and are therefore considered essential fatty acids (EFAs).

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in coldwater fish (and fish oil), perilla and flaxseed oils, are essential elements of a healthy diet. Omega-3 oils contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are usually lacking in the typical Western diet, which is filled with foods containing high amounts of omega-6 fats.97 EPA and DHA can be synthesized in the body from ALA, but EPA and DHA synthesis may be insufficient under certain conditions and for most people that consume Western diets.

Most Americans and citizens of other Western nations consume far too many omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and not enough omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. In fact, some Western diets consist of 20 parts of omega-6 to only one part of omega-3. For optimum health, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids should be between 1:1 and 4:1.100

Studies associate the Mediterranean diet — rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids such as that found in olive oil, and antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs — with cardiovascular health and increased life span.101-109 Other studies support omega-3’s importance in cardiovascular health.110-112

Life Extension’s Super Omega-3 is a premium, scientifically-validated fish oil concentrate, derived from sustainable sources, that contains a proprietary, full-spectrum blend of synergistic nutrients to provide scientifically validated cardioprotective health benefits.

An abundance of scientific research substantiates the wide-ranging health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil and monounsaturated fatty acid and polyphenols in olive fruit.113-121

No other commercially available fish oil supplement contains this level of essential fatty acids, sesame lignans and olive fruit polyphenols. 

Super Omega-3 from Life Extension uses a proprietary EPA/DHA technology that results in a pure, stable and easy-to-tolerate fish oil. The Pure+™ fish oil used in Super Omega-3 is produced with a proprietary technology that purifies the oil with a highly advanced distillation process to reduce environmental pollutants to extremely low levels. The result is an improved fish oil that exceeds the standards set by international rating agencies.

The unstable nature of fatty acids like fish oil limits their biological efficacy in the body. Scientific studies show that when sesame lignans are supplemented with fish oil, the beneficial effects are augmented.122,123

Sesame lignans help guard against lipid peroxidation, thereby extending the stability of DHA in the body. These lignans also direct fatty acids toward pathways which can help with inflammatory reactions. Super Omega-3 provides standardized sesame lignans to enhance the overall benefits of the improved EPA/DHA fish oil.

To emulate a Mediterranean diet, Super Omega-3 provides a standardized olive fruit extract to deliver the polyphenol hydroxytyrosol, a powerful antioxidant that protects normal LDL from oxidation and counters free radicals.124-128 Research shows that a combination of olive oil and fish oil supplements helps with inflammation better than a placebo or fish oil alone.129 Therefore, four softgels of Super Omega-3 provide the equivalent polyphenol content of 4 to 6 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.

Super Omega-3 provides a high concentration of olive fruit extract standardized for hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol, verbascoside and oleuropein polyphenols. Research shows the value of oleuropein in favorably altering gene expression, delaying senescence in specialized skin cells, and helping maintain normal platelet activation.

We take Super Omega 3 every day. During the very dry months in Colorado, our feet were always cracking and our skin was very dry. When we take Super Omega 3, no more cracking feet or flaking skin! Plus we have more energy and feel much better overall. It's the best!

I really can't say what benefits I am receiving from the product. I am taking it because I don't eat much fish and I uss the product as a substitute for not eating fish. Most nutritionists say eating broiled fish is very helpful in promoting cardiovascular health.

    Comments about Life Extension Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract, 120 softgels:

    I have been taking this product for a few years now. In my last order, I believe I received three bottles. I've noticed a difference in taste and smell. They are so much "fiishier" than before, they almost make me gag. I'm hoping this was just a weird batch, UGH! I keep them in a dry, cool closet. I have always liked these because they didn't have a strong odor or taste. Will try again as this brand was highly recommended.

        This is the best omega 3 product I have ever used. The formula combines many healthy ingredients which works well together. One of the best benefits for me is that my joints move freely without discomfort. When I stop the omegas, I feel it in my joints. I have put my whole family on it all the way out to sister-in-laws. Just try it and see! You won't be disappointed.

            It took 10 capsules of a bargain brand to get the same amount of Omega 3 fatty acids, and I got weird raised red itchy patches while taking the bargain brand, which cleared up once I switched to the distilled LEF product. I don't have to worry about the LEF product going rancid since it is protected from lipid peroxidation. It sits better on my stomach, I don't have any fish burps, which were really offputting. I only have to take 4 gel caps which are divided among 3 meals, with 2 at my highest fat meal. I've compared many brands, and this is the best Omega 3 supplement out there anywhere. I've had great results from taking it and I won't go a day without it.
