Choose the most comprehensive fish oil supplement available

The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are essential elements of a healthy diet. But the typical Western diet, which contains high amounts of omega-6 fats, is usually insufficient in beneficial omega-3s like eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).1 Therefore, supplementing with healthy omega-3s is a great way to support heart health and more.

AlaskOmega® — pure, fresh, sustainable, and made in the USA

There are many fish oil supplements out there … but very few utilize AlaskOmega® — a sustainably harvested fish oil made from cold-water Alaska Pollock that is both caught and processed in the United States within hours of harvest for exceptional freshness.

AlaskOmega® has earned the International Fish Oil Standards’ (IFOS™) highest 5-star rating, and comes from a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified-sustainable fishery. Which means it actually exceeds industry standards. Do you know where your fish oil comes from?

Olive Oil and Omega-3s — staples of the Mediterranean diet

Studies indicate that the Mediterranean diet — rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids (like those found in olive oil), and antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs — is associated with cardiovascular health and increased life span.2-10

Other studies support omega-3’s importance in cardiovascular health,11-13and an abundance of scientific research substantiates the wide-ranging health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil and the monounsaturated fatty acids and polyphenols in olive fruit.14-22

Super Omega-3 provides a standardized olive fruit extract packed with the polyphenol hydroxytyrosol, a powerful antioxidant that protects normal LDL from oxidation and counters free radicals.23-27

Plus, research shows that a combination of olive oil and fish oil supplements promotes a healthy inflammatory response better than a placebo or fish oil alone.28

Only our Super Omega-3 formula provides a highly concentrated olive fruit extract equivalent to the polyphenol content found in 8–12 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and standardized for hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol, verbascoside and oleuropeinpolyphenols — and fits it into just four softgels a day! Research shows the value of oleuropein in favorably altering gene expression,29 delaying senescence in specialized skin cells,30 and helping maintain normal platelet activation.31

Sesame lignans preserve fish oil’s purity and potency

The unstable nature of the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil limits their effectiveness. Super Omega-3 provides standardized sesame lignans to enhance the stability of DHA levels in your body and the overall benefits of the improved EPA/DHA fish oil.32,33  

No other fish oil supplement contains this level of pure, potent, and sustainably sourced omega-3 fatty acids, sesame lignans, or heart-healthy olive fruit polyphenols. With a natural lemon flavor added to improve taste and palatability, Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Extract is the most comprehensive omega-3 supplement you can buy!
