REASONS YOU’LL LOVE ORIGIN OMEGA

PATENTED ANTI-COMPETITON TECHNOLOGY Origin Omega is the first and only product to enhance the absorption and utilization potential of omega-3 fish oil by separating the EPA and DHA into separate capsules to be taken at separate times during the day to eliminate their natural competition.

TRIPLE STRENGTH Origin Omega delivers more than 700mg of EPA and 700mg of DHA per daily serving, in a non-competing formulation. That’s 300-400% more EPA and DHA than you will find in most omega-3 products, giving your body what it needs for optimal heart, joint and brain health.

THE HIGHEST QUALITY PURE AND SIMPLE Origin Omega is exclusively made from the highest quality, wild caught fish from the cold clean waters of Iceland, and is processed using the most advanced molecular distillation methods. It is also 3rd party tested for optimal disintegration, bio-absorbability, microbiological purity and GMOs. This ensures that Origin Omega is of the highest quality and purity and surpasses the FDA’s strictest quality standards.

A 100% BURPLESS FISH OIL Because Origin Omega is made is small batches it’s always fresh. This means you don’t have to suffer through horrible “fish burps,” stomach upset, or a fishy aftertaste.

MADE IN USA Origin Omega is manufactured in a state-of-the-art, FDA registered & cGMP certified facility here in the USA.

Q: WHY DID WE CREATE ORIGIN OMEGA?

A: While scientific research has shown that a diet rich in the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, is associated with superior, brain, heart, eye and general health, most people receive an alarmingly low level of these essential fatty acids (EFAs) from their modern diet. Additionally, because of something called micronutrient competition, even most high quality fish oil supplements fail to deliver these health benefits.

During our research into micronutrient competition we discovered that it wasn’t just vitamins and minerals that compete for receptor sites – EFAs also do. In fact, not only do omega-3 and omega-6 compete, but two key components of omega-3, EPA and DHA, also compete for receptor sites. This makes it nearly impossible to receive the desirable biological health benefits of both EPA and DHA when taking a typical fish oil product.

This is why we started sourcing the highest quality Icelandic fish oils and formulating our own omega-3 supplement using our patented Anti-Competition Technology. The result of over 10 years of research and development is Origin Omega – the first and only triglyceride form, omega-3 fish oil supplement to deliver over 700 mg of EPA and 700 mg of DHA per daily serving, at two completely different times during the day to naturally eliminate the competition between EPA and DHA. We take it everyday to give our bodies the proper balance of EFAs we need to achieve extraordinary health.

WHY SHOULD I TAKE A HIGH QUALITY FISH OIL?

Our ancestors, who were free of modern diseases, like heart disease, cancer, autoimmune conditions and diabetes, ate a diet lower in omega-6 and higher in omega-3. Their diets were roughly a 1:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3. Today, our diets have skewed, due to the industrial revolution, to a reported average someplace around a 15:1 ratio. (1) As a lower ratio of omega-6:omega-3 fatty acids is more desirable in reducing the risk of many of the chronic diseases of high prevalence in Western societies, this new higher ratio is something that each of us, individually, must take into account in order to achieve optimal health. We will slightly over simplify the science here and say that omega-3 is anti-inflammatory, while most omega-6 is inflammatory. So, to reduce diseases linked to inflammation it is essential to eat foods that help to increase your omega-3 levels and to decrease your omega-6 levels.

While there is no debate over the fact that omega-3s are absolutely essential for optimal health, the fact is these EFAs cannot be made by the body. This means we must get them from your diet or a high quality supplement. Unfortunately, our Western diet delivers alarmingly low levels of these precious fatty acids. Since high quality omega-3s that contain EPA and DHA are primarily found in wild-caught shrimp, scallops, crab, salmon, rainbow trout and catfish, unless you are eating these large amounts of high quality seafood choices everyday a supplement like Origin Omega is a smart and convenient choice.

FLAX SEED IS NOT THE SAME AS FISH OIL

Flaxseed oil has some benefits, but it is important to recognize that it does not contain EPA or DHA. It only contains a plant-derived omega-3 oil called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). While your body can synthesize EPA and DHA from ALA, it does so at a very low conversion rate. In fact, ALA only converts to EPA at a rate of between 5 and 10%, while it converts to DHA far worse at a rate of 2 and 5%. (2) To make matters worse, it is far harder for men to make that conversion as women convert ALA to EPA 2.5 times greater than men. This means that supplementation with Origin Omega is necessary to supply the EPA and DHA required to thrive.

3 MAIN REASONS OUR ORIGIN OMEGA HAS A SUPERIOR FORMULATION:

1 We have the highest potency.

In order for an omega-3 supplement to create physiological improvements in one’s health, it must contain high enough quantities of the two active components, EPA and DHA. Don’t be fooled by cheap fish oil products. Many omega-3 supplements supply high levels of omega 3 fish oils, but upon closer look one can spot that the levels of DHA and EPA are minimal. Our Origin Omega has the highest EPA and DHA potencies of any triglyceride fish oil products on the market offering 300 – 400% more EPA and more than 400 – 600% more DHA than most of the competition. Remember… Read the labels carefully to ensure that you are getting super potent levels of these powerhouse Essential Fatty Acids. The higher the concentration means you need to take fewer capsules.

2 We use the superior triglyceride form.

Origin Omega uses the superior triglyceride (TG) form while the vast majority of fish oil concentrates sold globally, including those sold in the USA, are EPA and DHA ethyl ester concentrates (EE). The TGs are the natural molecular form for fish oil, as they are the natural molecular form of nearly all oils and fats in both the plant and animal species. The TG form is quite stable form of these fatty acids, which prevents against oxidation far more than those with the EE form.

The EE form is created in a process called trans-esterification, more commonly referred to as molecular distillation, which reacts fatty acids with ethanol, or alcohol. EEs are scarce in nature, therefor, this affects the way they are digested and absorbed in the body. The body is set up to digest fish oil in the small intestine through mechanical emulsification with the help of bile salts released by the gall bladder. The triglyceride parts are then split into smaller parts called diglycerides, monoglycerides and free fatty acids by pancreatic lipase.

The problem with using the EE form as a fish oil supplement lies here. The fatty acid-ethanol bond formed in the process of creating EE is up to 50 times more resistant to pancreatic lipase as compared to hydrolysis of TGs (3,4). This means that you may absorb up to 50% less during digestion simply by taking in the inferior EE form. If wasting money on inferior forms is not important to you than feel free to ignore this fact. Taking the superior form, the TG form found in our Origin Omega can allow up to 70% greater absorption (5).

3 No other Omega-3 product utilizes patented Anti-Competition Technology.

Each micronutrient, whether essential or nonessential, vitamin, mineral, or essential fatty acid (like omega-3) differs in form, function and in the amount needed by the body to produce or maintain our individual health. They are absorbed by the body by attaching to receptor sites, or absorption pathways, which act as docking locations for specific micronutrients. However, due to something called micronutrient competition the process of absorption can be more like an epic battle scene than a harmonious event. Unfortunately, most supplements companies simply overlook this battle (competition) for absorption during the formulation process of their nutritional supplements.

This micronutrient competition plays a key role when we examine the proper method of omega-3 supplementation as this same competition occurs between the two key components of omega-3, the EPA and the DHA. This is because DHA has a relatively similar structure to EPA and they compete for binding to the active sites for absorption. Thus the EPA and DHA will compete for occupation of these active sites and reduce their activity. (6) The purer the preparation of the EPA and DHA, or the more that these competitions are eliminated, the more likely is it be properly absorbed and utilized by the body. Scientist agree and state that separating EPA and DHA will allow them to their job. (7)

That is why we formulated Origin Omega to deliver the EPA in the morning dose and the DHA in the evening. Separating these competitors, utilizing our patented Anti-Competition Technology, allows us to insure that your body is not only getting the highest potency, purest omega-3 fish oil in the superior triglyceride form, but it is also receiving and absorbing these 2 competitors separately in order to guarantee optimal absorption rates and incredible results.

THE SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN HEALTH BENEFITS OF ORIGIN OMEGA:

IMPROVE HEART HEALTH

According to research published by the American Heart Association, omega-3 supplementation from fish oil, daily for six months in patents after heart attacks improved heart function and reduced scarring in the undamaged muscle. Researchers also observed a significant reduction in biomarkers for inflammation and myocardial fibrosis. Fish oil supplements were also found to significantly reduce CV events (death, nonfatal heart attacks, nonfatal strokes) atherosclerosis, arrhythmias, thrombosis, triglycerides, and atherosclerotic plaque while improving endothelial function and slightly lowering blood pressure. (8,9).†

scale

ENHANCE ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE AND RECOVERY

In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition research showed that the inclusion of fish oil supplementation caused greater improvements in muscle strength and functional capacity. Fish oil supplementation may also be an effective means of reducing muscle soreness.(10,11)

RESTORE JOINT HEALTH

In a 1-year, double-blind study patients with active Rheumatoid Arthritis being treated with NSAIDs and/or DMARDs researchers found that dietary supplementation with 2.6 gm of omega-3 fatty acids (including EPA and DHA) resulted in significant improvement in overall pain and other beneficial clinical effects and reduced NSAID or DMARD use.(23,24).†

CURTAIL ADHD

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is characterized by hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention and affects more than 6 million US children. In a study published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology researchers found that omega 3 supplementation increases brain activation in prefrontal areas, improved task performance and improved symptoms of inattention in children with ADHD as well as typically developing children. (27).†

ENSURE HEALTHY BABY

Omega 3- fatty acids are essential for normal vision development in infants. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that infant girls whose mothers received DHA supplements from their fourth month of pregnancy until delivery were less likely to have below-average visual acuity at 2 months of age than infant girls whose mothers did not receive the omega-3 supplements. In another study children evaluated at 2.5 years of age from mothers who supplemented with fish oil during their pregnancy had higher scores for eye and hand coordination and mental acuity. (15,16).†

ALLEVIATE DRY EYES

In a study published in the journal Contact Lens & Anterior Eye, 456 computer users who complained of dry eyes and who used a computer for more than three hours a day for at least one year were studied. Half were given fish oil supplementation for three months and the other half a placebo containing olive oil. At the end of the three months the study revealed that the omega 3 supplements alleviated dry eye symptoms, reduced abnormal tear evaporation, and improved signs of a healthy eye surface. (17).†

REDUCE STRESS, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION

Research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids are required for proper growth, development, and function of brain tissue. Multiple studies have shown that low levels of EPA and DHA are associated with high levels of impulsive behavior, hostility, angry feelings and outbursts. Fish oil supplementation has resulted in reduced intensity of depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, and sexual dysfunction as well as significantly greater improvements compared with the placebo group in scores for depression, suicidality, and daily stresses. (18,19,20,21,22).†

SAVE MONEY AND SAVE LIVES

Research by the Lewin Group shows that daily supplementation of 1,800 mg of omega-3 fatty acids (containing beneficial quantities of EPA and DHA) could reduce more 380,000 hospitalizations due to coronary heart disease (CHD) over a 5 year period and save an estimated $3.1 billion over that same five years in CHD-related hospital and physician expenses. According to research published in the The Lancet, A diet with a omega-6 to omega-3 ratio of 4:1 or less may reduce total mortality by up to 70% over 2 years. (28,29).†

INTENSIFY FAT LOSS AND MUSCLE GAIN, AND REDUCE CORTISOL

Obese women already on a restricted low-calorie diet were studied, those that were given the omega-3 fatty acids reduced their weight 20 percent more than the placebo group and reduced their BMI by up to 15 percent in only three weeks. A second study shows individuals supplementing with omega-3 were able to shed three and a half times more body fat, while increasing lean muscle mass. Lastly, research published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found that 6 weeks of fish oil supplementation significantly increased lean muscle mass, and significantly reduced fat mass in healthy adults. (12,13,14).†

PREVENT ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE

A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that individuals with the highest levels of DHA (a major component of fish oil supplementation) had significantly (47%) lower risk for developing all-cause dementia then those with the lowest levels. A linear relation was also found between higher levels of EPA and DHA and the prevention of cognitive decline. (25).†

TREAT CROHN’S DISEASE

Crohn’s disease is a painful inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) characterized by remission and relapse. Fish oil has been suggested as a treatment for a variety of chronic inflammatory disorders due to its potential to reduced production of leukotriene B4 and thromboxane A2, which are elevated in the inflamed intestinal mucosa of patients with Crohn’s disease. Research shows that Crohn’s patients receiving fish oil supplementation were significantly less likely to have relapses, with 28% relapsing in the fish oil group and 69% relapsing in the placebo group.(26)

REDUCE STRESS AND AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR

Researchers from Toyama, Japan, focused on how DHA, part of the omega-3 chain, affected aggressive behavior in young adults. Results showed that DHA prevented the study’s 41 participants from becoming more frustrated, even when put under mental stress. Another study found that omega-3 supplementation “inhibits the adrenal activation elicited by a mental stress,” leaving cortisol levels “significantly blunted” when omega-3 levels are high. In fact, omega-3 supplementation can reduce the body’s stress-induced production of cortisol by 22 percent. (30,31)

YOU CAN TRUST ORIGIN OMEGA

Origin Omega is exclusively made from the highest quality, wild caught fish from the cold clean waters of Iceland, which accounts for much of the world’s supply of high quality fish oil. Surrounded by cold, clean North Atlantic waters in an exclusive 200-mile fishing zone, Iceland boasts the world’s cleanest, greenest and most modern trawling, rendering, refining and packaging facilities. Origin Omega meets the parameters defined by the Council for Responsible Nutrition and the World Health Organization. Iceland is the first nation to have achieved true and complete sustainable fishing and Origin Omega fish oils are fished using methods that are safe for dolphins and other protected species – allowing it to be recognized by Friends of the Sea.

Our fish oil is Non-GMO and follows the practices of Iceland Responsible Fisheries, NOAA’s Seafood Inspection Program and California’s Proposition 65. Origin Omega undergoes rigorous quality systems and controls in a new, state-of-the-art processing plant. It is processed using the most advanced molecular distillation methods. It is also 3rd party tested for optimal disintegration, bio-absorbability, concentration, microbiological purity and GMOs. This ensures that Origin Omega is of the highest quality and purity and surpasses the FDA’s strictest quality standards. Origin Omega is manufactured in a state-of-the-art, FDA registered & cGMP certified facility here in the USA.

There are 3 measurements that have set markers that must be met in order to show a product is safe for consumption and has not been oxidized.

The Peroxide Value (PV) is a measure of how much peroxide is present in oil. When polyunsaturated fatty acids oxidize, the first compounds created are peroxides, so this is a measure of primary oxidation. The para-Anisidine Value (pAV) is a colorimetric method that measures secondary oxidation products (2-alkenals and 2,4-alkadienals). TOTOX is a third way to measure oxidation, which is a calculation combining PV and pAV. It was conceived as a way to give a complete picture of oxidation by including primary and secondary oxidation measurements.

All fish oils being manufactured today are tested for these three safety markers along with other numerous markers that tell the labs how free of contaminations they are and how high the levels of EPA and DHA are in the product. These markers are all given limiting guidelines for safety.

SUGGESTED USE

oo-web-page-2

Q: Is fish oil safe for long-term use?

A: Of course… We take it everyday! Not only is it safe, but long-term use is recommended.

Q: Can I take fish oil if I am allergic to shellfish?

A: Yes. Our fish oil comes from fish. There are no shellfish in the product.

Q: Does omega-3 have any negative interactions with other medication or supplements?

A: No. However, it is best to consult with your health care provider before starting on any omega-3 supplement if you are taking a blood thinning medication and/or blood sugar controlling medication.

Q: How do I keep and store Origin Omega?

A: The shelf life of our Origin Omega is two years from production. The expiration date is printed on each bottle. Our bottles are opaque white and that minimizes the encapsulated oil’s exposure to light. While this helps to protect the fish oil it is always best to store your bottle in a cool, dry, dark place.

Q: From what fish is Origin Omega harvested from?

A: Our origin omega is harvest from wild caught sardines and anchovies from the cold, clean waters of Iceland.

Q: What preservatives are used in Origin Omega?

A: While other products contain magnesium stearate, which can potentially harm your intestines and preventing the proper absorption of nutrients, our Origin Omega uses natural tocopherols ( a form of vitamin E)

Q: If I take flaxseed oil do I still need to supplement with omega-3 fish oil?

A: Flax seed oil has some benefits, but it is important to recognize that it does not contain EPA or DHA. It only contains a plant-derived omega-3 oil called alpha-linoleic acid (ALA). While your body can synthesize EPA and DHA from ALA, it does so at a very low conversion rate. In fact, ALA only converts to EPA at a rate of between 5 and 10%, while it converts to DHA far worse at a rate of 2 and 5%. To make matters worse, it is far harder for men to make that conversion as women convert ALA to EPA 2.5 times greater than men

Q: Why does some fish oil cause “fishy burps?” And what can be done about it?

A: Regardless of preparation, fish is fish… and can reoccur on you to varying degrees. Our fish is super fresh, which greatly eliminates the likelihood of “fishy burps.” Additionally, the triglyceride form, like that found in Origin Omega is far less likely to cause burps than the ethyl ester form, which is more likely to be oxidized and rancid. Should you experience any fish burps, one great tip is to keep the gelcaps in the freezer. When taken frozen they rarely have this effect.

Q: I regularly eat fish. Do I need to supplement with omega-3?

A: That depends. Not all fish are high in DHA and EPA. For example, while wild caught salmon is especially high in active ingredients, farm raised salmon has minimal yields. Fish DO NOT physiologically produce EPA and DHA. Farm raised fish are NOT fed algae, which is the natural source of EPA and DHA, but instead, are raised on a diet high in GMO grains. To be sure you are getting enough EPA and DHA recommend supplementation to counteract the high levels of inflammatory omega-6 in most diets.
