The Natural Products Foundation and Carlson Laboratories have announced a partnership effort for Carlson Super Omega-3 Gems, a popular and award-winning product among Carlson’s complete line of omega-3 supplements. Part of the proceeds from the sale of each specially labeled supplement will benefit the Natural Products Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the future of natural health.
“Carlson has always demonstrated support of industry initiatives, and this flagship program to fund industry research and education programs is an example of their commitment,” said NPF Executive Director Deb Knowles.
“The Natural Products Foundation is an important organization that provides effective and much needed services to the industry, such as its Truth in Advertising program, to help level the marketing playing field,” said Carlson President Carilyn Anderson. “We are proud to support such initiatives, and hope to see other industry manufacturers follow suit.”
Current medical research suggests that the omega-3’s EPA and DHA found in fish oil promote healthy brain, vision, joint, and cardiovascular health. For those who do not eat an oily fish diet, Carlson Super Omega-3 Gems is a convenient alternative. The specially labeled Super Omega-3 Gems supplements displaying the Natural Products Foundation logo will be available at fine natural health stores nationwide from May 2011 through August 2011.
