PBL's Liquid Omega 3 - Product Review  Hot

 
 Progressive PBL's Liquid Omega 3

Description

PBL's Liquid Omega 3 features pharmaceutical grade fish oil obtained from edible fish that don't originate from endangered species. PBL's complex refining technology distills and refines carefully selected, health-food grade fish oil into omega-3 fatty acids that are low in long-chain monoenes (that cause gastric distress) and not contaminated with pollutants such as PCB's (polychlorinated biphenyls) and heavy metals. The finished oil contains a naturally balanced blend of pure omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA and DHA are precursors to beneficial prostaglandins that act as hormone-like regulatory compounds.

Over five thousand studies have documented the nutritional benefits of omega 3 activated fish oils. Omega 3 EPA and DHA benefits include heart health, healthy mental function, anti-inflammatory effects, hormonal regulation, joint health, healthy skin and weight management. The western diet is often deficient in omega-3 fatty acids. Consequently, many people are deficient in omega 3s because the body can't make them from other substances and they must be supplied by the diet.

Although fish and fish oils have known health benefits, they may also contain contaminants such as mercury, dioxins and PCBs. In particular, mercury-contaminated fish must be avoided by pregnant women because it adversely affects early fetus neurodevelopment. PBL's patented, state of the art, solvent-free distillation process produces fish oil that is 100 percent free of any toxic organic solvent residues, impurities, pesticides, PCBs or heavy metal contamination.


Pros

PBL's pure omega 3 pharmaceutical grade fish oil contains higher amounts of EPA/DHA compared to other omega-3 products. PBL states that Liquid Omega 3 causes no gastric distress and is 100 percent contaminant free.

The nutrients in Liquid Omega 3 have the following benefits:

  • Pharmaceutical grade, contaminant-free fish oil
  • High in EPA/DHA omega 3 essential fatty acids
  • Fish oil obtained from non-endangered species
  • Lowers the risk of heart disease, cancer, inflammation and other chronic diseases

Cons

With high doses of fish oil, certain people may experience abdominal discomfort or diarrhea. However, PBL states that Liquid Omega 3 is low in long-chain monoenes that cause gastric distress.

Fish oil should not be taken at least 14 days prior to any type of surgery.
