Yes Familiar with the product.
It is a genuine 5 star IFOS certified product that meets ALL of Dr Sears criteria fot PGFO
AS for marketing, depends what you mean?
At $32 compared to Dr Sears $40 i do not see how you can say its expensive ?
Can you find a cheaper 5 star Ifos product ? (it is not hard)
As for the additives, there is NO science sugesting that they make it any better but equally none to say it is any worse. Those wanting Omega 3 should not be distracted with irrelevat issues.
The product is EE and imo is fairly priced for what it is. Only those like Scott that understand the TG superiority will see anything wrong with this product. or its marketing
[quote:38ff52b0ab="jaydpiii"][color=darkblue:38ff52b0ab]Has anyone seen the "Pharmaceutical Grade" Fish Oil from Life extension? Though it is not cheap, $32.00 for 120 capsules or $24.00 after a $75.00 per year membership fee, it looks to be a very interesting formulation. Though I don't know how much of the added ingredients are actually valid or beneficial - according to their info and how much of it is marketing speak? [/color:38ff52b0ab]

[color=olive:38ff52b0ab]Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract (Molecularly Distilled) 120 softgels Item Catalog Number: 820
Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract contains pharmaceutical-grade fish oil with a unique 35%/25% ratio of EPA/DHA. The premium fish oil in Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract has been tested for pollutants including dioxins, furans, PCBs and heavy metals. The oil is sourced from the purest wild sardine, anchovy, and mackerel fished in cold, pristine, deep waters off South America, where there are significantly less environmental impurities. Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract fish oil is the product of a healthy, fully sustainable fishery and is a renewable resource.
Super EPA/DHA with Sesame Lignans & Olive Fruit Extract is manufactured to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and HACC (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) standards and are also in compliance with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) standards.
Our fish oil supply is the first and only fish oil ingredient to achieve US Pharmacopoeia (USP) verification, which is the most rigorous quality assurance verification in the world. The U.S. Pharmacopoeia is the body that establishes the standards for the FDA.
Direct access to the best fisheries in the world for manufacture of Omega-3 fish oil.
Compliant with the Council for Responsible Nutrition's (CRN) Voluntary Monograph on Long Chain Omega-3 EPA and DHA - strict industry manufacturing standards, guaranteeing a high quality product.
Life Extension has uncovered research that demonstrates that the addition of sesame lignans to fish oil enhances its beneficial effects. When fats are consumed, they are broken down into factors that either promote or suppress inflammatory reactions. Sesame lignans inhibit an enzyme (delta-5-desaturase) that causes dietary fats to be converted into arachidonic acid, a precursor to the toxic inflammatory factors prostaglandin E2 and leukotriene B4.
Super EPA/DHA now has the nutrient powerhouses of sesame lignans and fortified extra virgin olive oil. To get this level of nutrients found in these high oils would require excessive consumption of the native oils adding many calories to the daily diet.
Polyphen-Oil™ Olive Fruit Extract is a proprietary, fortified extra virgin olive oil complex developed by Life Extension. The naturally occurring polyphenol antioxidants are typically lost in olive juice discarded during olive oil pressing. Polyphen-Oil™ is highly enriched oil with olive juice extract standardized with these naturally occurring antioxidants.
In his latest book, The Perricone Prescription, Dr. Nicholas Perricone dedicates a section to olive oil and refers specifically to hydroxytyrosol as its rare and most potent protective antioxidant. Dr. Perricone states that hydroxytyrosol slows the aging process in the skin by stabilizing the cell plasma membrane. He recommends daily olive oil ingestion for soft, shiny hair and strong nails.
Only Life Extension’s Super EPA/DHA contains the “healthy trio” of concentrated nutrients from fish oil, sesame seed oil and extra virgin olive oil.
The olive polyphenols in Polyphen-Oil™ protect against LDL oxidation, suppress free radicals, and stabilize cell membranes.* Each serving of 2 softgels provides the amount of polyphenols equivalent to drinking two ounces of virgin olive oil. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.*
