Life Extension Launches New Omega-3 Fish Oil Gummy Bites

(Fort Lauderdale, FL)—Getting hooked on the cardiovascular and cognitive health benefits fish oil confers on the body is easy. What's perhaps not so easy to reel in is the fishy aftertaste typical in many fish oil supplements. Fish oil gummies are available for those who prefer an alternative to softgels; however, most formulations are packed with sugars and offer low concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids. Supplement consumers faced a tossup between health benefits and flavor—until now. Life Extension has just launched sugar-free* tropical fruit-flavored chews with a potent omega-3 punch, delivering a high concentration of EPA and DHA fatty acids in every serving without the infamous "fish burps."

As Dr. Abdoulaye Dieng, Life Extension's Senior Formulation Scientist, explained, advanced technology was used to deliver a high content of EPA (300 mg) and DHA (225 mg) fatty acids into every gummy bite. "We use a special technology that suspends billions of tiny droplets of omega-3s within a delicious tropical fruit-flavored chewable," noted Dr. Swick. "We wanted to make fish oil available for people looking for healthier gummy alternatives or tired of taking softgels."

Indeed, the omega-3 gummy bites cater to whole-body health needs without forgoing taste, making it easy to get the EPA and DHA the body needs. Why is fish oil so important? Research shows that daily consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in fatty fish, helps maintain heart and blood vessel health. And fish oil benefits go beyond vascular support; omega-3s, particularly DHA, are crucial for cognitive health and function. Omega-3 fatty acids also help inhibit inflammatory factors to support joint health and comfort.

But despite fish oil's reputation for its many health benefits, few people get enough of these nutrients in their diets, according to Dr. Michael A. Smith, MD, Life Extension's Director of Education. "Eating adequate quantities of fish isn't always an option, so finding a high-quality fish oil supplement, and one that you will like taking daily, is a must."

Omega-3 Fish Oil Gummy Bites is the newest addition to Life Extension's fish oil supplement offering (which also includes Super Omega-3 softgels, formulated with lemon to avoid a fishy aftertaste). Each gummy bite is sugar-free*, gluten-free and has no genetically modified ingredients.
