Watsonville, California (February 25, 2008) Nordic Naturals, the largest supplier of fish oil in the natural products market, is pleased to be a sponsor of the thinkVitality Fashion show celebrating the theme of living a healthy lifestyle and featuring the nation’s most chic eco fashion designers to be held at 7 pm during Natural Products Expo on Saturday, March 15, 2008. In line with Nordic Naturals’ mission to make significant advances in the health arena, the fashion show is a benefit for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest breast cancer research organization and prevention advocate.
“Nordic Naturals has always given high priority to helping individuals and organizations achieve their health goals through donations, education and research,” says Corinna Bellizzi, Nordic Naturals National Sales Manager. “Being a part of this exciting industry function is the kind of thing we enjoy doing because of its far reaching effects to raise consciousness and resources for such an important issue as breast cancer prevention.” The company has recently been given a “Gold Angel” status because of its involvement with Vitamin Angels. In addition, Nordic Naturals plays a strong role at the community level plus has a special program for consumers who require omega fatty acids but have financial disabilities.
According to Dr. Douglas MacKay, Nordic Naturals Research Advisor, “The potential role of dietary fats in cancer is attracting considerable interest, with both epidemiologic and experimental findings suggesting that omega-3 fats, which are almost absent from typical Western diets, exert protective effects against cancer progression. In addition, omega-3 fats have been shown to inhibit the growth of human breast cancer cells in vitro and in animals.” To learn more about scientific studies that address cancer symptoms and prevention using omega fatty acids, see www.omega-research.com.
Dr. MacKay will be speaking on Omega-3 fatty acids at Expo West on Saturday, March 15th from 12:30 to 1:30 pm in Room 207D. All attendees are invited.
