Fish Oil Omega 3: Learning Why Fish Oil Omega 3 Has Become So Outragously Popular
Over the last century, there have been substantial changes in the agricultural industry that have resulted in many nutritional changes in the average western diet. There is one company who has taken seriously the extent of these dietary deficiencies. Thera Vita (www.theravita.net) is a supplement company aimed at producing supplements that offset these deficiencies for the aging population.
Around the year 1910, the agricultural industry underwent a major shift in how they were feeding livestock. Most of the farm animals went from consuming leaf based substances, or otherwise known as “free range” substances to a more concentrated nutrient. Cattle, which was once mostly fed grass and leaves, were now being fed corn. The industry had its reasons for making those changes but one particular fatty acid significantly declined in its proper ratio - Omega 3 fatty acid.
Some estimates have surmised that 95% of the western population has improper balances of Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids. What was once a ratio of 3:1 of Omega 6’s to Omega 3’s prior to our livestock being fed concentrated nutrients is now an average of 16:1 in the western diet.
As a result, Omega 3 supplementation has become outrageously popular in recent years through fish oil supplements. Due to the high demand, many companies have introduced fish oil products that are unknowing poor in quality. These companies who buy fish oil from farm raised fish have significantly lower quality DHA and EPA molecules of Omega 3. Often, you’ll find companies producing 250mg to 350mg of Omega-3 fatty acids in a 1,000mg or 1,200mg fish oil, while most research suggests to regulate Omega 3 fatty acids that it take a much higher quality and much high dosage to regulate the Omega 6 to Omega 3 fatty acids.
Some research has even suggested that numerous diseases can be caused by fish oil supplements that do not adhere to molecular distillation, which is the process of manufactures taking out the contaminants.
Thera Vita, through their extensive product line research, is announcing their release of the high quality fish oil Omega 3 supplement. Thera Omega TG has just been released through the Thera Vita brand. Thera Omega TG contains 3000mg Omega-3s in each serving. It is third party tested and certified free of Mercury, Dioxins, PCBs, and toxins. And to add to its repertoire, Thera Omega TG is advanced molecular distillation guarantees exceptional purity and potency.
