Hi-Omega Fish Oil
Kordel’s Hi-Omega Fish Oil contains high concentrations of omega-3 fish oil which provides 300mg EPA and 200mg DHA. It contains 50% more EPA/DHA than other fish oil supplements. The fish oil extractions are molecularly distilled to remove toxins such as dioxins, PCBs, mercury and other heavy metals. This process helps ensure its purity. Kordel’s Hi-Omega Fish Oil is safe for consumption and is well tolerated even after long term use.
Malaysians simply do not consume adequate amounts of Omega-3 rich oily fish. The fear of heavy metal contamination when eating fresh fish also poses a problem. Moreover, much of our food today is cooked with Omega-6 vegetable oil (peanut, sunflower, maize, etc) which leads to the consumption of excessive amounts of Omega-6 fats. This ‘oil imbalance’ is also believed to be the cause of an increasing trend in heart disease as well as other diet-related degenerative diseases. Clearly, an inadequate supply of Omega-3 fats through our diets is one of the most serious health issues confronting our generation.
There is now solid research to support the heart health benefits of a higher intake of Omega-3 fats. The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends the consumption of 2-3g of Omega-3 fats daily to maintain heart health in both healthy individuals and those at high risk of having a heart attack. However, the benefits of Omega-3 are not limited to heart health. There is growing evidence that an inadequate intake of Omega-3 can also be a risk factor for a wide range of other health issues such as inflammatory diseases.
Fish oil has metabolic effects which play an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Numerous studies show that fish oil consumption reduces the incidence of heart disease by:
- Lowering triglyceride levels
- Increasing HDL levels
- Thinning the blood to ensure smooth blood flow
- Preventing plaque formation (which leads to atherosclerosis)
- Lowering blood pressure
As a result, various cardiovascular diseases such as coronary atherosclerosis, fatal cardiac arrhythmias, ischemic heart disease, strokes and myocardial infarctions could be prevented by regular fish oil consumption.
Brain & Vision Development
DHA is found in large quantities in the neuronal membranes of the retina and brain. An adequate intake of DHA is particularly important during pregnancy and lactation, especially during the first and last trimesters of pregnancy and early postnatal period when the rate of brain growth is at its peak. DHA also has significant effects on the photoreceptor membranes and the development of rod and cone cells for normal vision, particularly in infants.
DHA plays a vital role in the maintenance of effective brain function at every stage of life, from infancy to adulthood. A decrease in this omega-3 fat in the brain is often accompanied by age-related memory loss and cognitive decline, and the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. An increasing number of researchers have also observed the link between DHA deficiency and depression, particularly postpartum depression which may be due to the constant drain of DHA reserves during pregnancy and lactation.
Medical researchers have provided convincing evidence that due to their anti-inflammatory properties, omega-3 fatty acids are able to retard inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. A daily supplementation of omega-3 fats could decrease morning stiffness and markedly reduce the number of tender joints as well as the dependence on NSAIDs and other arthritic drugs.
Imbalance in dietary fat intake, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, hypertension, inflammatory disorders such as arthritis and eczema. For proper mental and eye function.
Adverse Effects : Fish oil is contraindicated in individuals with bleeding disorders. Individuals on blood thinning medications such as aspirin should also take extra caution. Diabetics and pregnant women are advised to seek medical advice before taking fish oil supplements.
