LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In the pursuit of good health, an increasing number of people turn to fish oil pills to supplement their intake of omega-3 fatty acids. Marine Essentials, distributors of the Marine-D3 antioxidant and omega-3 nutritional supplement, point out that fish oil supplements are not as effective as once thought – they may be doing more harm than good.
The worldwide fish oil supplement market, valued at $1.1 billion in 2011, is expected to top $1.7 billion in 2018 as more and more people seek the reported health benefits of consuming omega-3 fatty acids.
Fish oil supplements are created using oil extracted from farmed fish including mackerel, herring, tuna, halibut, and salmon. The problem with fish oil supplements is that they can contain harmful toxins such as mercury and PCBs that build up in the body over time. Also, farmed fish are given antibiotics that remain in the extracted oil and are passed along to anyone ingesting fish oil supplements.
Marine-D3 is a Marine Essentials proprietary formula that exceeds the benefits of common fish oil without the harmful side effects. According to Marine Essentials, the secret to the effectiveness of Marine-D3 is two powerful antioxidants: Seanol™ and Calamarine™.
Seanol™ is a rare extract of ecklonia cava that has been proven to be 100 times more powerful than any land-based antioxidant – including vitamin C, vitamin E, blueberries, and green tea. It’s also the only ecklonia cava marine-algae extract that has been approved by the FDA.
Calamarine™ is not fish oil. It is extracted from deep-sea squid found in the clean waters off South America. In its purified form it delivers 85% more omega-3 DHA than fish oil. Calamarine™ actually skips the “middle man” because fish can’t produce DHA.
According to Marine Essentials, their proprietary formulation of Marine-D3 beats common fish oil in providing health and anti-aging benefits. Those benefits include reducing “bad” LDL cholesterol, raising “good” HDL cholesterol, improving circulation, raising energy levels, improving sleep, promoting lifelong healthy vision, reducing body fat, and increasing lean muscle.
