ReNew Life - Oil Smart Omega 3-6-9 - 180 Capsules
The EFAs in ReNew Life's OilSMART
come from flax, borage and fish oil. OilSMART also contains lipase, a beneficial fat-digesting enzyme. Many people are hesitant to take fish oil because of the fishy taste and unpleasant "repeat" that occurs with many supplements. Lipase is an enzyme that breaks down the fats in OilSMART and helps to prevent the fishy aftertaste. Lipase also makes the EFAs in OilSMART easier for the body to absorb. Each capsule is colored with carob to protect the oils from the damaging effects of light.

- Lipase enzyme for better digestion

Advantage of Omega-3 Supplementation
One of the major advantages of taking a high-potency Omega oil supplement is that purification techniques are used to ensure that the beneficial oils are free of detectable levels of mercury, PCBs and other contaminants. Be sure to choose an Omega oil supplement that has been manufactured using such techniques. Also, taking a daily oil supplement is less expensive than eating salmon every day! EFAs cannot be manufactued in the human body and must be aquired through diet. Most people do not consume adequate amounts.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is different about OilSMART?
The typical diet is rich in some fats and low in other, healthier fats. OilSMART's unique ratio of beneficial fats can help balance the equation. OilSMART also contains the fat-digesting enzyme lipase. Other fish oils often cause a fishy "repeat" due to poor oil digestion. With OilSMART, lipase helps to break down the oils and make them easier for the body to absorb.
Why should I take fish oil supplements?
Fish oil supplements supply the essential fatty acid; Omega-3. Omega-3 can only be obtained from the food and supplements we consume. The typical American diet is very low in omega-3s and it is very beneficial to supplement your dietary intake of omega-3 with fish oil supplements.
What are the main benefits of taking fish oil supplements?
Essential to healthy digestion, Omega-3 oils help nourish the cells in the intestinal tract and provide the lubrication necessary for regular, healthy bowel elimination.

From their cellular position, they direct and manage vital body functions, such as inflammation and proper heart, joint, eye, brain and immune function.

Fish oil has sometimes caused me to have an upset stomach. What can I do to avoid that?
Lower quality products that have not been purified and distilled can often cause an upset stomach, as well as capsules that have spoiled. If you see cloudy deposits in the oil inside your capsules, that can mean that they are rancid and should not be taken. ReNew Life uses enteric-coating on their capsules to deliver oils directly to the intestines for better absorption and no fishy aftertaste or 'repeat'. They have also added plant lipase (a natural fat-splitting enzyme) that helps the body digest and absorb the beneficial oils.
Should I be concerned about toxins, heavy metals, pesticides or other pollution in fish oil supplements?
Most fish oil supplements are purified through a process called "molecular-distillation". This is a process by which all harmful materials - heavy metals, mercury, PCBs, and other toxins - are removed completely from the fish oil. So generally, there is no need for concern.
What is omega-3?
Omega-3 is a sub-group of essential fatty acids. Flax seed and some plants provide an omega-3 fat (ALA), but seafood, fish and fish oil provide the two most biologically functional omega-3 fats (EPA and DHA). Research shows that most Americans do not consume enough omega-3 and confirms that consuming adequate amounts of omega-3 from fish oil improves health and reduces risk of chronic conditions.
What are EPA and DHA?
EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are two omega-3 fats found in fish and seafood. EPA and DHA have been extensively researched and are known to be beneficial for heart health, flexible joints, the immune system, good mood and mental health.
Do fish oil capsules require refrigeration?
It is best if they are stored in a cool, dry place rather than in conditions of extreme heat or cold, but it is not necessary to refrigerate them.
