ZonePerfect Logo Zone Perfect Omega-3 Fish Oil Capsules
ZonePerfect Fish Oil

One of the great deficiencies in the current American diet is the lack of long-chain Omega-3 essential fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). The result has been an increasing production of "bad" eicosanoids that are an underlying factor in many chronic conditions.

Long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA have far greater effect on the modulation of eicosanoid synthesis than shorter-chain Omega-3 fatty acids such as alpha linolenic acid (ALA) found in sources such as flax seed oil. Clinical studies have shown EPA to be nearly 10 times as effective on a gram for gram basis for altering eicosanoid synthesis than is ALA. Furthermore, excessive levels of ALA can disturb the metabolic pathway leading to the synthesis of "good" eicosanoids.

The best source of EPA is fish oil. Fish cannot make EPA, only plankton can. However, fish are at the end of the food chain that accumulates EPA. Unfortunately, fish also accumulate other items such as heavy metals, pesticides, and PCBs. It makes no sense to supplement with fish oil unless PCPs have been removed from it. One of the processes capable of doing so is called molecular distillation. This is an expensive process, yet it provides safer fish oil suitable for human consumption. ZonePerfect™ Molecular Distilled Fish Oil Capsules not only contain molecularly distilled fish oil but are also fortified with high levels of natural Vitamin E to protect the molecular integrity of the purified fish oil.

As with any supplement, unless the diet is controlling insulin levels, the effectiveness of the supplement will be highly compromised. This is why molecularly distilled ZonePerfect™ fish oil capsules will give its best effectiveness when used in combination with the Zone nutrition program.

Sufficient levels of EPA are difficult to achieve on a daily basis unless one eats significant amounts of cold water fish such as salmon or one consumes cod liver oil. Unfortunately, oils found in fish or commercial cod liver preparations may be contaminated with various toxic materials such as PCBs. The only effective method for removing PCBs and other toxic materials from isolated fish oils is molecular distillation. The identical process is used to remove herbicides and pesticides from natural vitamin E. For this reason, all fish oils in ZonePerfect™ capsules are molecular distilled. Additionally, the capsules contain 20 IU of natural vitamin E. This protects the integrity of the oils in the capsule from oxidation and helps prevent depletion of one's vitamin E levels (which can occur with ingestion of supplemental fish oil). Typical fish oil capsules contain less than 10% of this amount of natural Vitamin E per capsule.

Improved complexion, increased energy, better mental acuity, and enhanced athletic performance are all possible with better eicosanoid balance.

Facts about Fish Oil

Scientific interest in Omega-3 fatty acids and fish oils increased greatly when it was realized that population groups who consumed fatty fish had considerably lower mortality rates from cardiac and circulatory diseases than the general population. It was determined that the oils in these fish provided the beneficial effects against these illnesses. Over 5000 scientific papers have been published dealing with and documenting the benefits of Omega-3 activated fish oils.

Omega-3 is the name given to certain long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. These fatty acids are essential oils that must be consumed in one's diet for optimal health. In fact, failure to thrive will occur unless they are present in the food you eat.

The two most important Omega-3 fatty acids are the biologically activated oils- EPA and DHA. EPA is effective in reducing the risk of cardiac and circulatory diseases, while DHA is an essential structural component of the central nervous system. DHA is important for optimum development of the brain and the eyes, and is therefore very important for the health of pregnant women and small children. Currently, the level of DHA in American women's breast milk is the lowest in the world.

The daily recommended dose of Omega-3 fatty acids is 1.5 grams. This corresponds to eating an average of 100 grams of oily fish or 500 grams of cod per day. To insure this dosage a person should plan to take 4 to 6 ZonePerfect Omega=3 capsules daily. This approxiates 1.5 grams of activated oils.

A daily dose of ZonePerfect Omega-3 oils contains approxiamately 1.5 grams of activated Omega-3 fatty acids in their natural form (as triglyccrides). This form is the most easily absorbed by the human body.

A common problem with fish oils is rapid oxidation. The encapsulation process used in ZonePerfect Omega-3 keeps the oils in a solution protected from the environment. ZonePerfect Omega-3 Fish Oils are manufactured from the purest refined fish oils, from which all traces of undesirable fatty acids have been removed. Each and every producation run is carefully analyzed and inspected according to government standards.

Listed below are answers to some of the most common questions in connection with Omega-3 Fish Oils.

Do ZonePerfect Omega-3 capsules contain a lot of calories?

Because ZonePerfect Omega-3 capsules contain Omega-3 oils, the product has a relatively high energy content. However, since the daily dose is so small (6 grams), there are only 54 keal per recommended dose. This is lower than the number of calories in a daily dose of cod-liver oil.

Should the entire family use Omega-3 Fish Oils?

Nutritional experts have learned that Omega-3 oils are vitally important during all phases of life and believe that a person's diet should include oily fish several times each week. ZonePerfect Omega-3 fatty acids are an excellent alternative for those who do not eat fish frequently, or who would like to ensure a high intake of these essential polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Is it dangerous to exceed the stated dose of Omega-3 oils?

Therapeutic doses of Omega-3 oils as high as 12 grams per day have been administered, which corresponds to 40 capsules without ill effects. We recommend starting with a daily dose of no more than 1.5 grams (6 capsules) to assure the body receives an optimal dose of high quaility Omega-3 fatty acids per day.

Are ZonePerfect Omega-3 oils safe to use?

Yes, the ZonePerfect Omega-3 Fish Oils are a completely safe product. They are molecularly distilled from natural raw materials, free from any toxic trace elements (including heavy metals and PCB), and have been tested physically, chemically and micro-biologically over a long time.

How can I tell when fish oil has oxidized?

The smell of rancid fish is a sure sign of oxidized Omega-3 oil. The human smell and taste senses are well developed to ensure that we only eat fresh food, so you can trust your own senses when it concerns fish oil. Proper storage of the oils helps to insure the capsules stay sealed against the environment.

What does Vitamin E actually do?

Vitamin E functions as an antioxidant in our bodies. It is a fat-soluble antioxidant that protects cells from attack by free radicals. Vitamin E is found in various parts of the body, such as muscles, fatty tissues and the liver. It is essential to have adequate amounts present when taking Omega-3 fish oils. ZonePerfect Molecular Distilled capsules contain 20 times the vitamin E found in most other brands. In addition, ZonePerfect's vitamin E is in its natural rather than synthetic form.

How do I take the ZonePerfect Omega-3 Fish Oils?

One can take all the capsules at the same time. The time of day is not critical, but the capsules need to be taken with food.
