What is the reason Eskimos and other fish-eating populations exhibit improved cardiovascular health? How might fish oil relieve the pain of arthritis. The answer to these questions may be omega-3 fatty acids, “good fats” in fatty fish such as salmon that may support optimal function of organs and tissues including the heart, blood vessels, brain, nerves, eyes, skin, and joints. While researchers recommend two to three servings of fatty fish each week, most of us consume only one serving per week. Fatty fish are nature’s richest sources of the beneficial long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). GNLD’s pure and potent Salmon Oil can boost the omega-3 content of the diet and support a healthful balance of fatty acids. Six capsules provide the omega-3 value of an optimal serving of fresh salmon.

Why GNLD Salmon Oil?

      · Contains pure salmon oil. Does not contain undesirable oils from shellfish, shark, other scavengers, bottom feeders, or sea mammals.
      · Derived from healthy, fresh salmon from pristine, deep North Atlantic waters, health-screened to certify that they are free of disease and selected for human consumption.
      · Only “body oils” used. Selecting oils from only the edible portion of the salmon reduces exposure to substances which may collect in organs (herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, and vitamins A and D).
      · Potency guaranteed two years after manufacture. Six capsules provide concentrated omega-3 fatty acids — a minimum of 330 mg EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and 270 mg DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
      · Balanced ratios of EPA and DHA as found in nature.
      · The omega-3 fatty acid value of one 100g serving of salmon in three capsules.
      · Virtually no vitamin A or D.
      · Only 20kJ per capsule.
      · Easy-to-swallow soft gelatin capsules.

10 Reasons to hook up with GNLD Salmon Oil

      1. Species-specific selection. GNLD scientists stipulate the species of fish that provides the richest, purest source of omega-3s: the finest fresh, healthy salmon. This species is native to the deep, cold waters of the North Atlantic, where exposure to pesticides and heavy metals is dramatically reduced.
      2. Only “body” oils selected from the premium edible portions of fresh, healthy salmon are accepted, never organs that may collect unwanted toxins.
      3. Pure, cold-pressed salmon oil. GNLD Salmon Oil contains no undesirable oils from shellfish, shark, scavengers, bottom feeders or sea mammals.
      4. Ideal serving. Six capsules deliver the omega-3 fatty acid value of one 100g serving of fresh salmon: at least 330 mg EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and 270 mg DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).
      5. Balanced ratios of EPA and DHA, as found in nature, which science shows may support normal visual and neuronal development, and maintain vascular health.1, 2

Q. What diseases does GNLD check for in the fish used in Salmon Oil?

A. GNLD's Salmon Oil offers a level of quality and consistency unparalleled by any other fish oil products. We follow the strict standard testing protocols established by Europe and adopted by the U.S. government. The FDA Hazardous And Critical Control Point (HACCP) program requires screening for at least 29 disease and parasite hazards commonly carried by fish, including severe hazards, such as hepatitis A and E, clostridium botulinum types A, B, E, and F, and trichinella spiralis. Our careful screening makes certain that GNLD Salmon Oil is the highest quality, purity, and consistency humanly possible for a natural product of this type!

Q. Does Salmon Oil contain omega-3, -6, and -9?

A. Salmon Oil is primarily an omega-3 fatty acid supplement, derived from one of nature's most pure and potent sources: healthy, fresh fish from deep North Atlantic waters. Each 6-capsule serving provides concentrated omega-3 fatty acids, with a minimum of 330 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid and 270 mg of docosahexaenoic acid. This is the omega-3 value of an optimal serving of fresh fish. As such, there would also naturally be occurring amounts of oleic acid (omega-9) and linoleic acid (omega-6), just as would be found in a serving of fresh salmon. However, Omega III Concentrate and Omega III Salmon Oil are primarily omega-3 supplements, and should not be considered a principal source of omega-6 and -9.

Q. Why is Salmon Oil not processed as water-miscible?

A. Derived by cold press processing, solely from health screened, fresh fish, six capsules of Salmon Oil deliver the omega-3 value of an optimal serving of fresh fish. The soft gelatin capsules are easy to swallow, and the very nature of the fish oil itself lends it to easier absorption in the body without the aid of water-miscibility. You can rest assured that each dose of Omega III Salmon Oil is readily absorbed by your body!

Q. Does Salmon Oil work in the cell or in the joint ?

A. Some research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids (naturally occurring in salmon and other fish) can modestly reduce the pain associated with arthritis. The mechanism for this effect is not well understood, but is believed to be the result of an inhibition of three of the normal pathways of inflammation. This effect is not related to either the joint fluid or the muscles.

Despite this promising research, it is important to keep in mind that Salmon Oil is a natural food extract. It is to be taken for the benefits of regularly supplementing the diet with whole-food omega-3 fatty acids. Neither is intended to be marketed as a cure for joint pain or inflammation.

Q. Is Salmon Oil best taken early in the morning and at night on an empty stomach for best absorption?

A. The benefits of supplementation with GNLD Salmon Oil is not linked to the time of day the product is taken or whether or not it is taken on an empty stomach.

We generally suggest that supplements are taken at meal times for two reasons: 1) Many supplements are better absorbed when taken with food, and 2) Our whole-food products are designed to work with foods, not to replace food. Also, people with sensitive stomachs who may have difficulty with tablets and capsules in general, usually report fewer upsets when their supplements are taken with food.

Q. Which provides more essential fatty acids: Salmon Oil or Evening Primrose Oil?

A. Salmon Oil is a rich, food-sourced supplement that delivers the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. On the other hand, evening primrose oil does not contain any significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids. Evening primrose oil contains omega-6 essential fatty acids. Although both nutrients are useful, performing different functions in the body, omega-6 fatty acids are plentiful in most diets, while omega-3 fatty acids are only largely available from a few specific food sources. With GNLD's Salmon Oil you have the benefits of fish without the inconvenience of having to prepare fresh fish every day.

Q. What kind of testing takes place to insure there is no mercury in the Salmon Oil?

A. We follow the standard testing protocols of the American Organization of Organic Chemists to verify that our Salmon Oil is pesticide free and free of heavy metal contaminants, such as mercury.
