Supplement of the Month: Standard Process – Calamari Omega-3
Standard Process – Calamari Omega-3 Liquid Supports the Cardiovascular System, Normal Blood Pressure, and a Healthy Immune System*
Omega-3 fatty acids are associated with good health. These polyunsaturated fatty acids cannot be made by the body, so they must be obtained through diet. They are found in fatty layers of cold-water fish and shellfish, English walnuts, flaxseed, plant, nut and algae oils, and fortified foods. Omega-3 fatty acids are used to assemble cell membranes, support blood flow, and make chemical messengers called cytokines.*
Where does Calamari Oil Come From?
More than 2 million tons of squid are caught around the world each year. Of this, 10% of the food-grade raw material is not used for human consumption. Calamari oil comes from this unused portion. The calamari oil is then processed and tested to ensure optimal levels of Omega-3 fatty acids. Studies show that calamari oil is the highest known source of DHA.
Is Calamari Omega-3 Liquid for you?
