    Ascenta believes in "Good Science"

    While "Good Science" most commonly refers to science that adheres to rigorous standards, Ascenta also believe that it stands for science that is good for people, improving their physical and mental health. At their research centre, they employ state-of-the-art technologies and sophisticated analytical instrumentation.Ascenta research team is continually working towards the next generation of science and innovation. They strive to develop products that improve mental and physical well-being, while exceeding industry standards for quality and purity.

    Why you need omega 3:
    Omega-3 fatty acids are "good fats" that are essential for optimal health. Like vitamins and minerals, omega-3 must be provided by our diet as it is not produced by our bodies. EPA and DHA are the active forms of omega-3 required by the body to perform vital functions:

    • Omega-3 (EPA & DHA) function in the body
    • Promotes cardiovascular health
    • Reduces inflammation
    • Supports mental focus & cognitive function
    • Supports positive mood & emotional well-being
    • Promotes brain, eye, & nervous system health
    • Supports healthy immune system function
    • Enhances appearance of skin and hair
    • Promotes optimal fat metabolism

    A number of dietary habits, such as the widespread use of vegetable cooking oils (omega-6), industrial milling, and the decreased consumption of fish (omega-3), have contributed to an omega-3 deficiency, or imbalance, in the diets of many North Americans. As compared to the ancestral diet of Neo-Palaeolithic humans, omega-3 consumption has dropped 20 fold from a daily intake of 3.0 grams down to a meager 0.15 grams. At the same time omega-6 consumption has increased dramatically, far exceeding the recommended daily intake.

    A decreased amount of omega-3 relative to omega-6 in the diet results in an increased risk of degenerative disease. Experts generally advise that we consume more omega-3 and less omega-6.

    Ascenta NutraSea Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I give NutraSea Kids to children under one year of age?
    Please consult with a health care provider before giving NutraSea Kids to children under one year of age.

    Can I cook with NutraSea?
    Heating the oil to cooking temperatures could result in a degradation of quality; instead, feel free to add NutraSea to foods after they have been cooked. In addition, NutraSea is great in salad dressings, pastas, yogurt, or mixed in a fruit smoothie.

    NutraSea is a fat - will I gain weight from taking it?
    No, the consumption of omega-3 fish oils should not cause an increase in body fat if you are taking the recommended dose. In fact, research reveals that omega-3 fatty acids actually promote fat loss. Also, please check out their research piece on omega-3 and body composition: http://www.ascentahealth.com/omega-3-and-you/wellness/omega-3-body-composition-fat-fighting-fat/

    How does flax oil compare to NutraSea?
    There are two dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids: plants (which contain alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA) and marine-based sources like fish and squid (which contain EPA and DHA). One of the top food sources of ALA is flax (also chia and hemp), which is about 55% ALA by weight. Generally, North Americans consume plenty of ALA through our diets, but the physiologically-essential omega-3s, EPA and DHA, are consumed at much lower levels. While the body can partially convert ALA to EPA and DHA, humans generally have poor abilities to perform this conversion. Because fish oil provides the active forms of omega-3, EPA and DHA, its health benefits are greater and supported by a large body of research.

    What ingredients other than fish oil are in NutraSea and why?
    Ascenta uses different natural antioxidants in their products to prevent oxidation. Green tea extract is used in some of their products and provides excellent protection against oxidation, allowing their products to remain fresh for the duration of their shelf life. Phospholipids are also used in some of their products and are also very effective at preserving the quality of their products. Our studies have shown that both green tea extract and phospholipids are more effective than the commonly used antioxidants rosemary and ascorbyl palmitate.

    Does NutraSea come from wild or farmed fish?
    The sardines, anchovies, and mackerel in NutraSea come from wild, cold waters off the coast of Peru. The squid in NutraSea DHA is distributed in the Pacific ocean, more specifically in the South American and Asian parts of the world.

    Is there any caffeine in the green tea extract used in NutraSea products?
    The green tea extract in their products is used as an oil stabilizer to prevent oxidation, and not as a dietary source of green tea catechins. Laboratory test results confirm that the green tea extract used in their products is not a significant source of caffeine.

      This is a great replacement for Dr. Sears Omega 3 for children which seems to have fallen off the face of the earth.
