Our fish oil is unique among other fish oils for its’ critical extraction, purity, bioavailability and concentration. Supercritical CO2 extraction advanced technology uses less heat and no chemical solvents when compared to molecular distillation, resulting in fewer unwanted isomer formations and a “cleaner” oil and provides superior protection against oxidation.
Supercritical fluid extraction uses CO2 (carbon dioxide) instead of oxygen to gently extract the fatty acids, which also protects them from microorganisms that can’t survive without oxygen. No chemical preservatives, solvents, or undesirable compounds are found in QÜELL Fish Oils. Heavy metal and contaminant levels measure significantly lower than the standard.
Recent scientific data shows the triglyceride form of fish oil is better absorbed when compared to ethyl esters. Recent data have demonstrated that omega-3 fatty acids delivered in a triglyceride form may result in greater plasma levels and a higher omega-3 index compared with omega-3 fatty acids delivered in the form of ethyl esters.
Many fish oils contain only about 30% omega-3 fatty acids, of which roughly 18% is EPA and 12% DHA. The remaining 70% is a varying mixture of other components. In other words, regular fish oil contains less than a third of the desired active ingredients and more than two thirds of “other” components. These other components may include cholesterol, omega-6 fatty acids, saturated fatty acids, oxidation products and contaminants. Our QÜELL Fish Oil provides at least 75% active ingredients, leaving less room for nonessential compounds.
The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids continue to emerge and numerous health organizations around the world recommend adequate daily intake of EPA and DHA. Data continues to accumulate that supports EPA and DHA in cardiovascular health as well as many other areas, including neurological health, vision health, and joint health. The omega-3 fatty acid EPA is the direct precursor for the prostaglandins, which are involved in helping to maintain the body’s normal inflammatory processes. DHA plays a major role in the structural integrity of neuronal membranes. DHA is essential for neurological and visual development and is vital throughout pregnancy to support fetal brain growth and formation of the retina and visual cortex. As the most abundant fatty acid in the brain, adequate amounts of DHA are needed throughout infancy and adulthood for ongoing optimal function.
