Packing Even More Value Into Omega-3s

AURORA, ILLINOIS – JUNE 20,2008. The omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) found in cold water fish help support a healthy cardiovascular system and may also help promote joint function, boost protein metabolism and assist with weight loss.

Since the human body cannot produce omega-3s on its own, they must be taken in with foods and other nutritional sources. The average American diet provides only around 50 mg EPA and 80 mg DHA on a daily basis. That’s why a growing number of people are turning to fish oil supplements to make sure they get enough of this essential fatty acid.

“Optimum Nutrition introduced smaller-sized softgels of Norwegian-sourced Salmon Oil as a nutrient-rich alternative to the larger capsules,” said Jon Fay, Marketing Analyst with ON in Aurora. “The Food & Nutrition Board’s daily Acceptable Intake parameters are 1.6 grams of omega-3s for men and 1.1 grams for women, and a 2-softgel serving of our Salmon Oil provides 200 mg of the omega-3 fatty acids – 90 mg EPA and 110 mg DHA. Whether you take several servings daily, or just one, this nutritional insurance amounts to just pennies a day.”

Founded in 1987, Optimum Nutrition is a leading manufacturer of premium nutritional supplements. Recognized for quality and innovation, the company maintains two distinct brands – Optimum Nutrition and American Body Building – each offering a comprehensive line of powder, energy bar, liquid, tab and cap products. ON owns and operates its own state-of-the-art cGMP-approved manufacturing facilities to assure unprecedented quality and consistency.
