Omega-3 health education and effective weight management solutions are two focuses for Cyvex Nutrition at this year's SupplySide West trade show, taking place Oct. 10-14 at the Venetian's Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Company representatives from Cyvex and its parent company Omega Protein Corporation will be on hand throughout the show to discuss the launch of OmegaActiv™, highly refined omega-3 oil that features a 1:1 ratio of EPA and DHA, provides a rich supply of menhaden-sourced DPA fatty acid, and is truly vertically integrated and traceable.
Omega Protein's Dr. Alex Byelashov will help kick off SupplySide West's Education Series on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 10 a.m. with the session, "DPA on the Rise: The Science and Formulation Potential Behind an Emerging Omega-3 Fatty Acid" (Murano Room 3201). Dr. Byelashov will explore emerging research that points to DPA as a crucial "missing link" to the larger omega-3 health puzzle, concluding with an overview of current formulation solutions.
On Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 10 a.m., Cyvex and Omega Protein are co-sponsoring omega-3 expert Dr. Bill Lands' VendorWorks session, "The Direct Impact of Omega-3 Deficiencies on Healthcare Costs" (Lido Room 3001). Dr. Lands will outline research behind the high healthcare expenses associated with omega-3 and omega-6 imbalance, and will provide study-backed solutions for redressing this core health concern.
Show attendees can also visit Cyvex's booth to find out more about its latest vegetarian ingredient SolaThin™, a protein-rich pure potato extract supporting healthy appetite control. Samples of both SolaThin and OmegaActiv will be available at Cyvex's booth #18051.
