The Fish Oil #supplement You Should Be Taking
@USANAinc BiOmega™ Reels in Rigorous Independent Testing
SALT LAKE CITY, April 16, 2014
SALT LAKE CITY, April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- (NYSE: USNA) -- There's nothing
fishy about USANA's wildly popular BiOmega^™ fish oil supplement. It has been
thoroughly tested, evaluated and given the respected stamp of approval by
ConsumerLab.com, a leading provider of independent product testing helping
consumers and healthcare professionals make safe and knowledgeable purchasing
In a recent study, ConsumerLab.com determined that USANA's BiOmega contains
its labeled amount of fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids, including EPA and DHA.
The review can be found on the company's website at www.consumerlab.com.
"USANA is concerned with three main points when making its supplements:
quality, safety and efficacy. That's why we use nothing less than the highest
quality ingredients possible when manufacturing our supplements." —Dr. John
Cuomo, Executive Director of Product Development and Technology
Heart, bone, joint, skin, brain, mood—you name it, omega-3 fatty acids help
support it. Omega-3s are critical for maintaining healthy cells by providing
the lipids needed for healthy cellular membranes. Cells are the foundation of
every part of our body, so omega-3s are needed for health at the most basic
Plus, with USANA's BiOmega, you get a little extra vitamin D, but without the
fishy aftertaste due to the added lemon oil.
A FEW THINGS TO CONSIDER
1.Purity. Some supplements may fail to meet standards set by the more
rigorous Prop 65 in California. USANA's product falls well below Prop 65's
allowable levels of PCBs and meets or exceeds global industry standards.
2.Sourcing. Eating wild, cold-water fish remains the best source of
omega-3s, but if your diet falls short and you need to supplement, note
that USANA's BiOmega comes from small, clean fish (sardines and anchovies)
from a fishery that uses sustainable practices and renewable resources.
3.Blend. While there doesn't seem to be a consensus on what the perfect
ratio should be, it's important to pick a product that has both EPA and
DHA. Virtually all studies that have shown health advantages have used
supplements that contain both.
4.Potency. Compare your labels. The National Institutes of Health recommends
that healthy adults get 650 mg per day of DHA+EPA. Even higher levels have
been shown effective for supporting heart health, which is why a daily
dose of USANA's BiOmega contains 1050 mg of EPA+DHA (1200 total omega-3
fatty acids) in a daily dose of two gelcaps.
