Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats that are considered essential because they cannot be made by the body and must be consumed through food or supplements.
Three types of omega-3s include ALA, DHA, and EPA. ALA is found in plant foods such as flaxseed and nuts. DHA and EPA are found in certain types of fish, such as pollock, salmon, herring, sardines, albacore tuna, and mackerel. All omega-3s are considered healthy fats, but EPA and DHA from fish oil have been the most studied and have shown beneficial effects for a variety of conditions.*
Q. What types of fish are used in TherOmega, and from where are they sourced?
TherOmega is 100% sourced from wild Alaskan fish oils. The fish oil used in TherOmega is from sustainable, wild-caught Alaska Pollock from the Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska.
Q. Is the fish oil in TherOmega from a sustainable source?
Yes. The fish oil in TherOmega is certified Sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), considered by many the gold standard for sustainability certification.
Q. Should I take TherOmega if I eat fish?
That depends on your health status and the amount of fish you eat. Healthy individuals who eat fatty fish more than twice a week may not need a daily supplement. For those who don't eat fish often, 500-1000 mg supplemental EPA/DHA per day will provide a similar support for heart health.* For individuals with other concerns, the suggested dose of fish oil may be higher. It is best to check with your healthcare provider to determine the amount of EPA/DHA that is best for you.
Q. How much TherOmega should I take per day?
The recommended daily dose of TherOmega is between one to five softgels per day. It is dependent on your health status and the amount of fish you eat. It is best to check with your health care provider/team to determine your individual needs.
Q. Is TherOmega free from mercury and other contaminants?
Yes. TherOmega is free from mercury and other contaminants found in fish. TherOmega is made using molecularly distilled fish oil, and it is independently tested and certified for content accuracy and purity by NSF® International. Further, every lot of TherOmega is also tested for freedom from contaminants such as mercury, lead, and PCBs by the IFOS (International Fish Oil Standards) Program. IFOS awarded TherOmega with its highest rating of 5 stars, which shows its exceptional quality and purity. View IFOS test results here
Q. Is there anyone who should NOT take TherOmega?
If you are allergic to fish, consult with your doctor whether fish oil is safe for you.
High doses of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA (over 3,000 mg per day)can prolong bleeding time. Therefore, hemophiliacs and individuals taking blood thinners should exercise caution in the use of high-dose fish oil and should have their coagulation status monitored regularly.
TherOmega should be stopped approximately 7-10 days before and after surgery.
Q. Can I take other nutritional supplements along with TherOmega?
Yes. Certain other supplements can be taken along with TherOmega (such as Essentia, Solo, OptiFlex Complete, Canabrex, Theratonin, etc.).
Use caution if taking coenzyme Q10 and herbs (garlic and ginkgo biloba) while taking TherOmega as these all have potential blood-thinning effects.
Q. Will TherOmega interact with any prescription medications?
Yes. As with any dietary supplement, it is recommended you discuss with your pharmacist and or healthcare team to clarify whether TherOmega can be taken along with your medications.
Check with your doctor due if you take the following medications:
Antiplatelet drugs (aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), dalteparin (Fragmin), dipyridamole (Persantine), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, ticlopidine (Ticlid), and warfarin (Coumadin)): These medications prevent blood clots by slowing blood clotting. Using TherOmega along with these medications may increase the risk of bleeding. However, most research shows that fish oil does not increase bleeding. Until more is known, be watchful if combining with medications that slow blood clotting.
Antihypertensive drugs (captopril (Capoten), enalapril (Vasotec), losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), diltiazem (Cardizem), amlodipine (Norvasc), hydrochlorothiazide (HydroDIURIL), furosemide (Lasix), and many others): Using TherOmega with medications that lower blood pressure may increase the effects of these medications and may lower blood pressure even more. Take separate by at least 2 hours.
Orlistat (Xenical, Alli): These medications are used to block some of the fat that you consume from being absorbed by your body. If you take these medications at the same time as fish oils, the medications might keep the beneficial fatty acids in fish oil from being absorbed by the body. Take TherOmega and these medications at least 2 hours apart to prevent this from happening.
