OmaxPureTM has surpassed all the strict standards set by GOED, with its extremely low oxidation levels. Using an unrivalled 3-layer purification process, heavy metals, dioxins, furans, PCBs and other contaminants are removed from the fish oil. Rigorously tested by third party organisations for safety, quality and sustainability. OmaxPureTM is additionally fortified with natural Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols) and Rosemary Extract.
A: OmaxPureTM is purest form of fish oil containing ultra-concentrated (90%) omega-3 in re-esterifed (rTG) form. It gives a clinical proven high dosage & highly bioavailable omega-3 with fewer number of softgels. To reach this unprecedented concentration, the state-of-the-art three-layer purification technology that includes the most advanced supercritical CO2 extraction and supercritical CO2 chromatography are employed. This unique process also effectively removes all heavy metals, dioxins, furans, PCBs and other contaminants. This premium grade, odourless and burpless omega-3 fish oil surpasses all the stringent standards set by GOED. Attributed to all these unique features, OmaxPureTM is identified as a pharmaceutical grade fish oil, making it as one of the most potent fish oils available in the market.
A: Omega-3 in fish oil can exist in any of these 3 forms: unconcentrated natural triglyceride (TG), concentrated ethyl ester (EE) and concentrated re-esterified triglyceride (rTG) forms.
rTG concentrate provides up to 90% of omega-3 and EE concentrate typically contains 50 to 70% omega-3. With this higher concentration, it effectively delivers higher dosage of omega-3 into body cells with a smaller volume of fish oil.
As rTG omega-3 is identical to natural triglyceride form, it can be tolerated, absorbed and utilised more easily by human body with virtually no gastrointestinal side effect, as compared to omega-3 in EE form. A recent study has shown that bioavailability of omega-3 in rTG form is 70% higher than ethyl esters form and 24% more superior than the natural triglyceride form in unprocessed fish oil.
Omega-3 in rTG form is also more stable and oxidises less easily than EE form. Fish oil contains DHA in EE form was found to decay 33% more rapidly than omega-3 fish oil in triglyceride form. Although rTG form is better than EE form, majority of concentrated omega-3 fish oils are offered in the EE form as it is more costly to re-esterify ethyl ester fish oil back to rTG form.
A: Supercritical CO2 extraction is an advanced and fairly new purification and concentration technology. This technology boosts the quality of fish oil, guaranteeing highly pure, fresh, concentrated and cholesterol-free fish oil. Removing heavy metal and other contaminants, this technology applies 350% lesser heat to the fish oil as compared to molecular distillation, which is a technique commonly used to purify and concentrate fish oil. As omega-3 EPA and DHA are highly sensitive to temperature, the use of low temperature is crucial to prevent oxidation and degradation of omega-3. Since Supercritical CO2 extraction does not involve the use of toxic solvents, and because CO2 can be recycled, this technology is highly sustainable with no risk of residual chemicals in the fish oil. Going beyond supercritical CO2 extraction, OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish oil is processed via an unrivalld three-layer purification process, which also includes urea complexation and supercritical CO2 chromatography, which makes it as one of the most concentrated, purest, most potent and cholesterol-free fish oils available in the market.
A: OmaxPureTM capsule is fortified with a patented, plant-based, GRAS-certified ingredient that does not harden over time. This allows for optimal release into the intestines, maximal absorption into the body cells and a stable shelf life. The potency and safety of omega-3 fish oil is assured through the shelf life of the product.
Most fish oil supplements in the market are encapsulated using a gelatin capsule which hardens over time. This would affect the release of fish oil in the intestines, resulting in lower absorption and bioavailability of fish oil. Some fish oils additionally include enteric coating to mask a fishy aftertaste or fishy burps. Enteric-coated formulations incorporate different chemical additives, which could lead compromised digestion and prolonged absorption in the small intestines, thereby resulting in poor bioavailability. However, pure, fresh and unoxidised fish oils like OmaxPureTM does not give a fishy aftertaste or fish burps. Hence, it certainly does not require an enteric coating to mask any fishy taste or burps.
A: OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil is primarily sourced from sustainable small fish – sardines, anchovy and mackerel. Since small fish are lower on the food chain, these fish naturally have a much lower concentration of contaminants compared to bigger fish. Hence, it is preferable to consume fish oil extracted from smaller fish.
A: The fish oil freezer test is a simple way to evaluate the quality of fish oil. In this test, simply leave the fish oil in the freezer until it is frozen. If the fish oil contain a lot of saturated fat and very little omega-3, it would solidify and give an opaque appearance. On the other hand, fish oils with ultra-high concentrations of omega-3, such as OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil would remain see-through even when it is frozen. This is because omega-3 fats have extremely low freezing points, they do not solidify easily.
A: Our modern diet contains too much omega-6 fatty acids (such as corn oil, soya bean oil), but too little omega-3 fatty acids. The ideal omega-3s to omega-6s ratio is 1 : 1, but this ratio can go up to 1 : 20 and more. Hence, replenishment of omega-3s with high concentration OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil is crucial to restore this healthy ratio. Each omega-3 fatty acids (i.e. DHA, EPA and DPA) may individually offer important benefits, but our omega-3 metabolism relies on having all 3 present for the best results. DHA is crucial for healthy cell membrane structure, as well as normal growth and development. It is vital for the functional development of infant brain and maintenance of normal brain function in adults. Sufficient DHA in the diet improves learning ability, while a deficiency is associated with learning disabilities. Hence, OmaxPureTM is suitable for children, teenagers, adults and elderly. EPA is important for blood circulation. Hence, OmaxPureTM is suitable for those experiencing constant fatigue. Both DHA and EPA together provide a number of important health benefits throughout our lifetime. DPA (docosapentaenoic acid) is the third most prevalent omega-3 fatty acid found in fish oil. Although it typically occurs in a much lower concentrations than DHA and EPA, it is recognised as being more “powerful” than DHA and EPA. DPA plays a prominent role in overall wellness. Studies have shown that it may be able to support healthy cardiovascular system, eye and lipid profile.
A: Yes, OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil is very safe and highly recommended for long-term consumption for optimal health. As wild-caught fish have naturally occurring, numerous contaminants, we have employed unprecedented three-layer purification process, including Supercritical CO2 extraction technology that removes heavy metals, dioxins, PCBS and other harmful contaminants.
OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil is also highly fresh with extremely low levels of oxidation. Consuming oxidised fish oil does more harm than good and research has found that majority of fish oil supplements are highly oxidised at the time of purchase. Superior to the rest, OmaxPureTM has surplused all the strict standards set by GOED (The Global Organisation for EPA and DHA Omega-3s) for The Peroxide Value (PV), the para-Anisidine Value (pAV) and the total oxidation (TOTOX) values. These are the three primary analytical measures used to evaluate oxidation of fish oils.
A: OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil is highly recommended for those have insufficient fish intake. If you already take 1 to 2 servings of fatty fish weekly, then you may already have sufficient omega-3 and do not need to take it every day.
A: Since OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil is highly fresh and free of fishy taste, you can chew the entire softgel, or pierce and squeeze the fish oil into water, juice or cereal.
A: OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil can be taken anytime – day or night, with or without food.
A: Yes, you can. However, do ensure a 2-hour gap between OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil and medicine to ensure that the efficacy of OmaxPureTM is not compromised. As high dosage fish oil (>1,000mg/day combined EPA and DHA ) can have blood thinning effect, it may increase bleeding risk when a person takes them with blood thinners, such as aspirin. Hence, it is advisable to get a medical advice prior to taking fish oil supplements if you are on those medications.
A: No, OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil is a natural supplement, and not a medicine. Hence, no prescription is required.
A: OmaxPureTM Omega-3 Fish Oil has not been studied for use during pregnancy and nursing. If you are pregnant or nursing, we strongly encourage you to consult your physician before taking any supplements.
