    Carlson Labs - Super DHA Gems 500 mg. - 240 Softgels

    Carlson Labs Super DHA Gems 500 mg contains 1000 mg (1 gram) of fish body oil from a special blend of Norwegian fish oils in each soft gel. Plus 10 IU of Natural Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) has been added, not only to protect the freshness of the oil, but to supply the body with the additional Vitamin E it may need. Increased amounts of Vitamin E are needed when polyunsaturated oils like DHA and EPA are consumed.

    Carlson Labs Super DHA Gems is regularly tested (using AOAC international protocols) for freshness, potency and purity by an independent, FDA-registered laboratory and has been determined to be fresh, fully potent and free of detectable levels of mercury, cadmium, lead, PCB's and 28 other contaminants.

    DHA and EPA are two of the most polyunsaturated fatty acids in our bodies; much more unsaturated than vegetable oils. DHA is a vital structural component of cell membranes in our brain and eyes. It supports healthy cell signaling.

    Fish provides the important polyunsaturated omega-3's, EPA and DHA, which aid our well being by promoting cardiovascular health. For those individuals who do not eat an oily fish diet, Carlson offers a variety of Fish oil products in Liquids that are very tasty. All fish oil products are regularly tested using AOAC international protocols for potency and purity by and independent FDA Registered laboratory.

    Omega-3 fatty acids EPA & DHA aid in our well-being by promoting and supporting cardiovascular health, brain and nerve function, eye and vision health, immune system health, radiant healty skin, joint health.

    • Cardiovascular health:
      • DHA & EPA help modulate a healthy stable heartbeat
      • Maintain blood vessels to support circulation throughout the body
      • Support artery wall elasticity and may favorably influence C-reactive protein levels
      • Dietary intake of EPA and DHA is now being recognized as a safe and effective method for normalizing triglyceride levels
    • Brain and Nerve function:
      • As a vital component of our brain tissue and neurons, DHA supports cognitive functions
      • By improving membrane fluidity, DHA may help support nerve transmission processes
      • Increased levels of DHA in the brain may serve to protect and enhance the lifetime of neurons
    • Healthy vision:
      • DHA is found in high amounts in the retina and is important for normal vision
    • Immune System Health:
      • DHA and EPA are required for balanced eicosanoid formation, which supports balanced and healthy immune responses
    • Healthy joints and movement
      • DHA and EPA support healthy joints and comfortable movement by supporting healthy phsyiological processes

    Omega-3 fatty acids are important and essential nutrients for our health. They are composed of long chain carbons, which are polyunsaturated; they have many double bonds. The term omega-3 or n-3 refers to the location of the first double bond on the third carbon. Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), Eicosapentainoic Acid (EPA) and Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) and are recognized as important and/or essential omega-3's in human nutrition and physiology. Because of their unique structure, omega-3's have important and unique function in our bodies. EPA and DHA have a longer structure and contain more double bonds than ALA. Both EPA and DHA are involved in healthy cardiovascular systems, immune processes and help support the formation of healthy prostaglandins. DHA is a vital component of the retina, brain and neurons.

    Carlson Labs Excipients

    • Binder: Holds the ingredients in a tablet together. One of three types of binders are used as required: Plant fiber known as cellulose, acacia gum from the stem of the Acacia tree or brazil wax from the leaves of a palm tree.
    • Filler: Fills out the size and shape of a tablet or capsule making it practical to produce and convenient for the consumer to use. Plant cellulose (pure plant filler) is the filler of choice in Carlson tablets or hard gelatin capsules. Soybean or safflower oil is used in soft gelatin capsules.
    • Disintegrant: Expands when wet causing the tablet to break apart in the digestive tract releasing the nutrients for absorption. We prefer to use plant cellulose as a disintegrant.
    • Lubricant: Prevents ingredients from clumping together and from sticking to the tablet punches or capsule filler. Common minerals, silica, and forms of vegetable oils known as vegetable stearin, magnesium stearate or stearic acid are the most often used lubricants in Carlson tablets or hard gelatin capsules.
    • Coating: Protects tablet ingredients from deterioration by moisture in the air and makes large tablets easier to swallow. For most coated tablets, a cellulose (plant fiber) film coating is used which is free of sugar and potential allergy-causing substances. Occasionally, other coating materials are used such as corn protein (zein) or an extraction from trees (pharmaceutical glaze).
    • Sweeteners: Added to make the nutrients more palatable only in chewable tablets or liquids. Sweeteners found naturally in fruits such as fructose and sorbitol are chosen. More information on fructose and sorbitol can be sent to you upon request.
    • Flavors and Colors: Added to improve the taste or appearance of a formulation. We use flavors and colors only when necessary and choose the natural ones.

    Vitamins
    Vitamins are organic compounds that are necessary for normal growth and maintenance of life. As we are unable to synthesize vitamins, we must rely on foods and food supplements to maintain adequate amounts in our body.

    Thirteen essential vitamins have been isolated and these are divided into two categories, water-soluble and fat -soluble vitamins. The water-soluble vitamins include Vitamin C and the group of B-Vitamins. These water-soluble are not stored by the body and can be readily depleted. The fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and E remain in the body for longer periods of time.

    Minerals
    Although minerals make up only a small fraction of total body weight (4-5%), they are essential for human metabolism. Minerals act as the catalysts for many biochemical reactions within the human body. They are involved in responses of the nervous system and muscles, the absorption and secretions of the body's fluids, and maintain a delicate water balance within the body. The bones and teeth of our body have high mineral contents which accounts for their hardness and rigidity. Minerals, like vitamins, must also be supplied by dietary means as we are unable to synthesize them in our body.

      I recommend this product!
      My nutritionist recommended this brand of DHA Fish oil and I'm so glad I followed his advice. Before I was taking a liquid fish oil by the spoonful daily and it was messy and inconvenient. Now I just swallow 2 Super DHA capsules along with my other supplements in the morning. Easy breezy! And I don't ever get that fishy aftertaste anymore.

      I have been using DHA Gems for awhile but was really happy to find your website and be able to get them in 300's. These were recommended by my doctor at Kaiser and after reviewing other fish oil, I found that these are the best!!!!!!! Most only have a very small amount of DHA.

      I changed from another company's fish capsule's. Great choice - This product does NOT give a fishy taste and the other one did. I made a couple of changes switched the brand of fish oil, added one glass of wine per day and also added a couple of capsules of red rice yeast. All other things remained the same. In the first couple of months my cholesterol dropped 44 points.

      Carlson's DHA 500 was suggested by my serologist to improve my blood chemistry to avoid heart disease. He said it might also help with my memory loss due to aging; I'm 73. I have noticed a definite improvement with short term recall. Within 30 days of starting my DHA regimen, I was calling siblings and friends to suggest they try it!
