Omega-3 deficiency is the sixth biggest killer of Americans and more deadly than excess trans fat intake, according to a new study. The study determined that there were 72,000-96,000 preventable deaths each year due to omega-3 deficiency, compared to 63,000-97,000 for high trans fat intake.

We carry one of the best omega-3 supplements on the market, OmegAvail™ UltraTG (formerly Omega Ultra Marine).  It is a high potency omega-3 oil, featuring our TruTG™ fish oil in the form found in nature. The TruTG™ seal, found only with Designs for Health fish oils, ensures unmatched TG potency – Only fish oil blends and concentrates containing the TruTG™ seal are 90+% triglyceride (TG) bound omega-3 fish oils.

I have found that a quality omega-3 supplement that has good ratios and has been independently certified to have no heavy metals or pbcs will cost $35-40. If it doesn’t, they cut corners and that is not the one you want.  If you have questions bring your supplements in to the office for a review.
