A: NanOmega3 is a much more complete nutrient than plain fish oil. It is far richer in vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, and phytoestrogens. NanOmega3 is a vegan product, made from organic ingredients, from an environmentally sustainable source, free of oceanic pollutants. There are no pills to swallow or objectionable tastes stomach, and no resultant Òfish burpsÓ.
Q: How do you keep the product fresh and stable?
A: The ÒsecretÓ is our Meadow Pure flaxseed which carefully selects only fully mature flaxseeds, which are richest in antioxidants.
A: Although flaxseed has many benefits, its major drawback is that the short chain omega-3 fatty acids are not well converted to the all important long chain fatty acid DHA, so important for brain and eye health. NanOmega3 provides 100 mg DHA per serving, not from fish, but from the micro-algae fish it, the very source! Plus NanOmega3 also provides synergistic vitamins (E, D, B6, B12 & folate). Perhaps most important, ready to mix NanOmega3 is absolutely delicious!
Q: What are lignans?
A: Lignans are a phytonutrient (plant nutrient) of the classification known as polyphenols. The act like weak estrogens and are therefore called phytoestrogens. Lignans are also powerful antioxidants. The lignan content is likely one reason whu flaxseed consumption is thought to support the health of the breast, prostate and colon.
Q: Why natural Vitamin E Succinate?
A: Natural vitamin E, derived from foods, is thought to be twice as bioavailable as synthetic vitamin E, derived from oil. Because polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) like omega 3 and omega 6 are easily oxidized in the body, extra vitamin E should always be taken with EPA/ DHA supplements. The succinate form is thought to be most protective of breast and prostate health.
Q: Why natural Vitamin D3?
A: Vitamin D3, cholecalciferol, is generally agreed to be twice as bioavailable as vitamin D2, ergocalciferol. Fish is the best source of vitamin D in the diet, followed by Vit D2 fortified milk. Therefore 100% of the DV of vitamin D was added to this vegan formula. Vit D is not only important for strong bones, but also breast and prostate health and a strong immune system. Most authorities think that many of us not living in the warm sunny southern parts of the USA do not get enough vitamin D, especially if we are dark skinned or donÕt get moderate but regular sun exposure.
Q: How are the vitamins ÒsynergisticÓ?
A: In addition to the two answers above, B vitamins are important in the conversion of ALA to EPA and DHA. B vitamins also support brain and heart health, in particular by helping to lower a pro-inflammatory substance called homocysteine.
