Solgar proudly introduces Wild Alaskan Full Spectrum™ Omega Softgels, a premium blend of sockeye salmon oil, vitamin D3 and astaxanthin tested for optimum purity and potency.
Solgar proudly introduces Wild Alaskan Full Spectrum™ Omega Softgels, a premium blend of sockeye salmon oil, vitamin D3 and astaxanthin tested for optimum purity and potency. Two softgels provide 2400mg of pure, Wild Alaskan salmon oil (supplying 225mg of EPA and 200mg of DHA) derived from sustainably caught fish from the pristine, cold waters of Alaska.
Wild Alaskan sockeye salmon is one of the richest and most beneficial sources of the important omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, which makes it unique among high-protein foods. Its natural oil is among the purest of all ocean fish.
Much research supports the positive roles that fish oil plays in supporting cardiovascular and circulatory health. Studies have shown that fish oil supplements containing EPA and DHA can support triglyceride health by helping to maintain triglyceride levels already within a normal range. Research also indicates that fish oil helps promote cognitive health.
This premium speciality formula also provides an excellent source of vitamin D3, an essential nutrient that supports many areas of wellness, including bone, immune, colon and cardiovascular health. It also supplies the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin, a fat-soluble carotenoid primarily from micro algae that gives salmon and flamingos their characteristic colour.
Solgar’s Wild Alaskan Full Spectrum™ Omega Softgels undergo a proprietary purification process to ensure the removal of heavy metals while maintaining optimal integrity and potency.
'In my honest opinion this is the best fish oil money can buy. You would be hard pressed to find a single other fish oil product that contains not only Omega 3,5,6,7, & 9, but also 50% of your RDI for Vitamin D, and the extremely powerful anti-oxidant Astaxanthin (especially good for eye health).
One of the most notable things however is the omega 7's. I have not seen another fish oil on the market that has this Omega. Purchasing omega 7 on it's own will cost you a pretty penny. It's very good for your hair/skin health, and also the integrity of the mucous membranes in your stomach/throat. It can actually help heal stomach/duodenal ulcers! My girlfriend had an ulcer that we used this to treat, along with aloe juice.
I have been taking this product for about 3 months, at an average of 2-4 capsules a day. 2 isn't really enough if you're not eating any fish. My hair is super soft, no split ends, and my skin feels like I've just put lotion on it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I don't really know what a pimple is anymore. Allow me to be a bit pompous sounding when I tell you all I get a fair amount of compliments from the lady folk on my skin.
I highly recommend this product' Mr C
'The salmon used in Solgar's wild Alaskan salmon oil is wild sockeye, chum, chinook, coho, and pink salmon. The only brand I've found that is comparable is Vital Choice's pure Sockeye Salmon Oil. They are extremely similar in oil color vibrancy (both are very pure and so contain very high amounts of astaxanthin, which gives salmon that gorgeous red hue). I have also taken New Chapter's Wholemega, which is quite pale in color and very overpriced (I have no idea what kind of salmon they use as they don't say). I recently tried out Barlean's Wild and Whole salmon oil and it is very high quality with a whopping 500mcg of astaxanthin added in...but it is TWICE the price of Solgar per serving. Ouch. They are all full spectrum oils, ALL good quality from reputable companies, however Solgar's is a bit more potent, a much better price, I know what kinds of salmon they use, and I also like that Solgar's labeling is very detailed on the exact omegas you are getting.
As a large softgel at 1,200mg, you'd think they would be hard to swallow, but no. They slip down no problem at all, surprisingly, with no weird burping issues that you might get from low-quality or highly-distilled oils. I can even take two at a time and no issues. And there is no need for annoying lemon or orange "natural" flavorings as in other fish oils. This wild salmon oil is just that...wild salmon oil, no need for disguises!
I take four a day to get a full gram of omega-3 (two softgels gives you 500mg of omega-3). I started taking this oil for dry eyes, but the benefits have far surpassed just that issue. My hair is growing faster, my skin is slowly becoming less dry (and in the low desert, that's saying something), and I can only imagine what it's doing for my cholesterol levels. As with all oils, it is best to take your softgels before a normal-sized meal. I have found that this works best. After is fine, but before is better. This also aids digestion of the oils so you get the full effect.
People often ask me "Why don't you just take Solgar's regular, distilled fish oil? It has higher EPA and DHA." The thing is, while the molecularly distilled, concentrated fish oils do indeed boast very high amounts of EPA and DHA per softgel, most of them (not all) are very denatured by the time the distillation is done. Basically, they are not truly "fish oil" at that point after being denatured and distilled. Though the EPA/DHA element is strong, the natural make up of the original fish oil is long gone. The only ultra-concentrated brand I like is the unusual Garden of Life Minami PLATINUM 60ct. Orange Flavored Softgels. These are unique as they use the Supercritical CO2 extraction process (low heat) and they are in natural triglyceride form.
Ideally, you really need a full, natural spectrum or profile of omegas that are in most fish; omega 5,6,7 and 9, plus DPA . This is why any reputable fish oil company will tell you that the best way to get omega-3 is to just eat the whole fish. I want a product that is as close to that as I can get, one step away from just eating the fish itself. Solgar's wild salmon oil gives me this and astaxanthin, too. And as has been mentioned, omega-7 is now being sold on its own at a pretty price. With this oil, you don't need to buy separate omegas. You've got it all in one product. Now, for people who need theraputic levels of EPA and DHA, a concentrated product would be best. Solgar makes one that is a whopping 1,900mg in size. Good grief. I cannot imagine using that product. I do not know how anyone swallows that. Mr J
