Indianapolis, IN (PressExposure) May 13, 2013 -- Getting the benefits of fish oil is now safer and easier due to premium pharmaceutical grade fish oil launched by Young Life Research. It's geared toward discerning consumers looking for high quality supplements.
People are increasingly proactive about their health. Hundreds of scientific studies show fish oil is beneficial to the heart, joints, brain, eyes, and skin. And health practitioners are frequently recommending their patients take fish oil.
"All fish oils are not created equal. Premium pharmaceutical grade fish oil is ultra-pure and twice the strength of ordinary fish oil" says Kurt Meyer at Young Life Research.
There's a vast difference between low quality and premium fish oil. In fact the food grade brands that you find in all retail stores can be contaminated with mercury and toxic due to inferior processing methods.
Pharmaceutical grade is processed to meet much stricter standards. "We use a patented molecular distillation process to remove all traces of mercury and other contaminates. Then we have it tested and certified by 3rd party lab to ensure purity and potency."
Another issue with cheaper brands is strength. Most only contain about 300mg of Omega 3 per softgel, requiring a person to take 5 pills a day to get the suggested 1500mg of EPA and DHA fatty acids necessary for proven health benefits. The new pharmaceutical grade provides the same amount in only 2 softgels.
Fish burps are one of the indications of using a low cost brand. These are caused by a combination of using an inferior type of fish and poor processing. The Young Life Research Pharmaceutical Grade is made with desirable anchovies and mackerel, and flavored with lemon to eliminate this problem.
Young Life Research is adamant about fish oil. They feel that if a person can only pick one supplement to take, fish oil should be it. They've purposely priced their new product just above cost, so everyone can use it.
