Venice, FL (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
For 16 years, Dr. Bo Martinsen co-founder of Venice-based Omega3 Innovations has championed omega-3 fish oils by touting the fatty acids several wellness positive aspects at both national and international speaking engagements.
As a doctor, I usually inform my individuals, if there is a single basic thing you can do for your well being, take a solid dose of omega-three fish oil every day, Martinsen says.
But recently, Martinsen, who co-owns the biotech organization with Dr. Anne-Marie Chalmers, witnessed a expanding trend in the market the industry shift toward very-concentrated fish oil supplements that convinced him to alter his suggestions. As the market for fish oil grows, concentrates are becoming increasingly well-liked both in prescription and more than-the-counter form.
A speedy look about your nearby pharmacy shows the increasing presence of concentrated omega-3s, says Martinsen, who cites industry growth projections of eight percent a year by way of 2020 (1).
And, the growth spurt in products made by this type of manufacturing procedure has him worried.
I utilized to feel that as lengthy as we took an adequate dose of omega-3 each day, the kind of oil didnt matter, he says. But, the much more I perform with omega-3, the far more I see that the quality and manufacturing procedure of the oil is critical to customer health.
Martinsen says that some producers in an work to boost the crucial fatty acids EPA and DHA in the fish oil transform the acids into new chemical structures known as ethyl esters. He notes that ethyl esters exist neither in nature, nor in the human body.
His investigation on chemically modified omega-3s versus all-natural fish oils has led him to generate a weblog titled Seven Causes the Omega-three Industry is on the Incorrect Track.
When we begin changing the chemical structure of the omega-three molecules, the physique responds differently to the modified oil than it does to natural fish oil, he explains. Just like with genetically modified organisms, these chemical modifications are troubling due to the fact we dont know how the body will fully respond for years.
Martinsen says some other unfavorable concerns with concentrated omega-3s are rancidity, fewer fatty acids and natural vitamins, environmental waste, and the reality that they can be far more high-priced.
The fact is that men and women can get the exact same quantity of EPA and DHA from organic sources as is advertised in the concentrated items, he says. I think we would all advantage drastically if the market focused as an alternative on enhancing the technologies for producing liquid fish oil that is fresh and sustainable.
