ABOUT OG ØMEGA-3 PLUS

 

OG ØMEGA-3 PLUS is a new and original Nutraceutical and is the result of over 30 years scientific research by Professor Bjarne Østerud and his team in Norway. Their objective was to find a more effective form of Omega-3.

 

They found their inspiration from a surprising source.

 

THE INUIT

 

The research team were inspired by the Inuit people of the Arctic who, researchers believed, owed their low levels of heart disease to their traditional diet of raw fish, seal and whale blubber. All of which are high in omega-3 essential fatty acids DHA and EPA, but more importantly for sustained heart health; the elusive essential fatty acid DPA*. All supported by their natural ANTIOXIDANTS.

 

THE ISSUE OF OXIDATION

 

When Professor Østerud and his team carried out their initial research into the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids they made a significant discovery.

 

When fish and marine oils are refined they oxidise and their anti-inflammatory properties are diminished, drastically reducing the beneficial effects of their omega-3s.

THE SOLUTION

The Research Team believed the problem of oxidation could be overcome by adding a powerful antioxidant to the refined fish oil.

They experimented with one of nature’s most potent, rich in polyphenols – Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the research results confirmed their theory – the antioxidents in the olive oil protected the omega-3s from oxidising, thus enabling them to unleash their full potential.

 

Extra Virgin Olive Oils contain the highest levels of polyphenols, antioxidants that have been linked with better health.  Olive oil is also a source of Oleic acid,  an unsaturated fatty acid. Replacing saturated fats in the diet with unsaturated fats helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.

 

Nature had provided yet another key ingredient to complete their Inuit inspired formulation.


HIGH QUALITY OMEGA-3 FISH OIL FROM NORTH ATLANTIC HERRING + COLD PRESSED EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

 

BUT WHY NORTH ATLANTIC HERRING?

 

 

NORTH ATLANTIC HERRING
(RICHER IN OMEGA-3 THAN SALMON)

 

When OG Science + Wellbeing commissioned Professor Østerud to recreate his INUIT inspired formula using a more sustainable and traceable source of fish, he immediately selected North Atlantic Herring, a staple of the Scandinavian diet and one of the most abundant fish in the sea.

 

Our supplies are sourced in the cold, clear waters off Iceland. A stark contrast to the polluted Pacific from where many supplement producers source their oils.

 

Herring is a particularly rich source of DHA, EPA and Erucic Acid a long chained mono-unsaturated fatty acid, which in laboratory tests has been found to demonstrate a reduction in artherosclerotic lesions.

 

THE FØRMULATION ALSO INCLUDES

 

VITAMIN D3

 

Scandinavian Winters tend to be long, hard and dark so Norwegians are great believers in the benefits of vitamin D. Vitamin D3 is important for the absorption of calcium from the stomach and for maintaining healthy teeth, bones and muscles.

 

OMEGA-3 CONCENTRATE

 

To ensure your optimum daily intake of 1000mg of omega-3s and maintain the effectiveness and integrity of the Professor’s original INUIT formula, we enhance OG ØMEGA-3 PLUS with an omega-3 concentrate, which contains not only EPA and DHA but also 100mg of DPA. Note: DPA is only found in small quantities in fish and is virtually non existent in other omega-3 supplements but research has demonstrated its profound effect on good heart health.

 

 

INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATIØN

 

Independent laboratory testing in Leiden, Netherlands demonstrated a 56.7% reduction in artherosclerotic lesion formation and a 33% reduction in cholesterol. This confirms the effectiveness of Professor Østerud’s second generation supplement and its ability to release the full potential of its Omega-3 oils.

 

OUR APPROACH + PRØCESS

 

The process begins on our trawlers, operating in the North Atlantic waters off Iceland and is controlled by us at every stage.

 

Once caught the herring is filleted and the remains of the fish pressed to extract the precious oil, which is then taken to our multi-award winning filtration plant on the quayside in Kristiansund.

 

Before entering the facility the raw herring oil is analysed by our Quality Control department prior to going through four separate production processes which remove all contaminants and impurities.

 

The Extra Virgin Olive Oil – which replaces any anti-oxidants lost during the purification process – is then added as well as the Omega-3 concentrate, which includes the essential fatty acids EPA, DHA and DPA and finally the vitamin D.

 

All ingredients in OG ØMEGA-3 PLUS are sustainable, traceable and natural. As Norwegians we understand the importance of using only sustainable, traceable fish stocks and maintaining clean, healthy seas.

 

As a manufacturer we are fully aware of our green responsibilities and have made every effort to avoid using plastics in our packaging, which is why ØMEGA-3 PLUS is packaged in aluminium containers – recyclable and reusable.
