What are Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids?
Omega-3 fatty acids are important components of cellular and membrane lipids (the chief structural constituents of living cells) that are essential for life and health. Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are two groups of essential fatty acids (EFAs) that cannot be synthesized by the human body and therefore must be ingested in the foods we eat.
Can’t we get enough Omega-3 from the foods we eat?
Generally, no. Many researchers believe that the majority of Omega-3 food sources have disappeared from the modern diet. The foods that are now considered "mainstream" are often deficient in Omega-3. Even if your diet includes several meals of fish per week, you may not be ingesting sufficient amounts of Omega-3. This is because much of the fish we consume is now farm raised or does not contain significant amounts of Omega-3. Ideally, your diet should supply at least 650 mg of long chain Omega-3 (DHA + EPA) per day, either from food sources or dietary supplementation. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in deep, cold-water fish, such as salmon, mackerel and sardines.
Why don’t I need to supplement my diet with Omega-6?
Our diets are already rich in Omega-6 from foods that contain corn, safflower, sunflower or soybean oils. The problem is actually the ratio between Omega-6 and Omega-3. Optimum health is often attained when these two essential fatty acids are found in the appropriate ratio. Most experts recommend a ratio of 4 to 1. However, the intake of Omega-6 to Omega-3 in modern society tends to be disproportionately high (a ratio found to be as high as 30 to 1). Scientists are now encouraging a decrease in the intake of Omega-6 while stressing an increase in the intake of Omega-3.
Is it true Omega-3 can promote a healthy heart?
Yes, it can through a variety of ways. Research suggests Omega-3 fatty acids help to keep the blood healthy. It is also thought to support a healthy level of blood triglycerides. Omega-3 allows for better circulation of blood by making the red blood cells more elastic and flow more fluidly; thus, helping to maintain overall cardiovascular health.
Is there any truth to the statement that fish is "brain food"?
Yes. In fact, the most polyunsaturated of the Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA) makes up a large portion of the gray matter of the brain and neurons, as well as the retina of the eye. Research in the last few years has revealed that diets rich in Omega-3 fatty acids may help promote a healthy emotional balance and positive mood.
What can you tell me about the purity and safety of Coromega? I’ve heard that fish oil can contain mercury and other toxins.
We are confident in saying that Coromega is free of toxins and heavy metals. Coromega is manufactured in our state-of-the-art facility using processes that comply with the Good Manufacturing Practices currently proposed for the dietary supplement industry. Using our sophisticated testing methods we assure that the pharmaceutical grade fish oils in Coromega are of the correct composition of fatty acids. Molecular distillation removes any contaminants or toxins, such as mercury or PCB’s. Third party testing validates our findings.
I’m pregnant. I heard that Omega-3 is good for my baby. Is this true?
It is true. Omega-3, especially DHA, is important in the development and function of the nervous system: the brain and the eyes—especially during the last trimester (last three months) of pregnancy, and the first six months of life. Since it is thought that the unborn baby cannot make sufficient enough amounts of Omega-3 for its rapidly growing brain, these needs must be met by its’ mother. While the mother is breast-feeding, Omega-3 fatty acids are passed to the baby through her milk.* As with any dietary supplement, consult your physician before taking.
Does Omega-3 help my immune system?
Yes, it does. The Omega-3 fatty acid, EPA, functions as raw material for series-3 prostaglandins (hormone-like substances) that positively benefit immune function.
I have always associated fat with cholesterol. Does this product have a lot of cholesterol in it?
No, it does not. Coromega has a negligible amount of cholesterol (8 mg per packet, which is equivalent to 3% of the Daily Value) from the addition of egg yolk (as an emulsifier), in the product.
What about flaxseed oil? Isn’t it a good source of Omega-3?
Yes. However, it differs from fish oil. The Omega-3 fatty acid found in flaxseed oil is called LNA (alpha-linolenic acid). Once in the body, LNA is usually converted into EPA and DHA. However, the conversion can be inefficient; therefore, you may need to consume considerably more flaxseed oil than fish oil. In addition, fish oil does not have to be converted by the body to provide us with the EPA and DHA, the fish convert them for us.
If I mix my daily dose packet of Coromega with yogurt or juice, will it alter its nutritional value?
Absolutely not. Coromega is just as effective when mixed with food, as it is when taken alone. In fact, mixing it into food is a great alternative for those who may have reservations about taking fish oil.
I like my daily dose of Coromega to be cold. Is it a problem if I want to keep my packets in the refrigerator?
Not at all. Of course refrigeration is not necessary to keep your Coromega fresh. But there is no decrease in nutritional value if it is chilled. However, freezing should be avoided, as it will break down the emulsion.
I give my dog fish oil to improve the look and feel of his coat. Does Coromega enhance the look and feel of skin and hair in humans?
Yes. Omega-3 is commonly added to a pet’s diet to maintain the luster and health of its coat. In humans, research shows that Omega-3 also helps maintain healthy hair and skin. In addition, Omega-3 promotes softer, smoother, firmer skin. It may also help maintain the overall complexion.
DirectionsCoromega's creamy emulsion technology enables you to enjoy daily Omega-3 supplementation in a variety of ways:
Straight from the packet or a spoon
The perforated tear spout of the daily dose squeeze-packet of delicious Coromega can be torn off and Coromega can be squeezed directly into your mouth or onto a spoon.
Added to your favourite juice or yoghurt
While many people prefer to take Coromega on its own, we'd like you to know that you can supplement your diet with Coromega by adding it to juice or yoghurt. Coromega can be squeezed directly into orange juice and blended immediately for consumption. The blender blades will not damage the emulsion properties, and best of all, the orange juice flavour will be enhanced - Coromega's natural orange flavour is that good.
If yoghurt is a favourite, Coromega can be mixed into many yoghurt flavours to supplement with Omega-3 another way. Try vanilla or orange yoghurt. We're sure you'll love the taste.
