The Omega fatty acids in fish offer amazing health benefits, from helping to support and maintain healthy bones and joints1, vision2, the immune system3, mood4 and most of all, the heart and cardiovascular system6,7,8,9.†
But not all fish or fish oils are created equal. The type and quality of fish, where it comes from, how the oil is extracted and its final form are all essential to maximizing the nutrients that provide those benefits.
Pure Alaska Omega Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is made from salmon found in the clean waters of the North Pacific. Our proprietary extraction method shields the oil from damaging high heat. The result is a pure and balanced fish oil that delivers all the essential fatty acids, along with vitamins A, D, and E, and the antioxidant Astaxanthin – all naturally found in Alaska salmon!
Alaska salmon swim and feed freely in the cold, clean waters of Alaska. Their pristine habitat and short lifespan means they are naturally free of pollutants and heavy metals. Alaska salmon also contain some of the highest levels of Omega-3 fatty acids of all cold water fish.
Our Alaska Salmon are only harvested in well-managed, certified sustainable fishing areas. What’s more, we use the part of the salmon that has traditionally been discarded into the sea. By more fully utilizing the Alaskan salmon that’s already being harvested to make our oil, we’re reducing discards into the marine environment and not adding harvest pressure.
We pioneered a cold press extraction method for Alaska Salmon that shields the oil from damaging high heat and eliminates the need for additional refining and chemical treatments. The result is a safe, clean, extra-virgin salmon oil that’s still in its triglyceride form – the same form that’s found in nature. Most fish oils have been distilled or heat processed into an ethyl esther form, which elminates or reduces many naturally-occuring nutrients.
That’s why taking a Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is as close to eating a piece of fresh Alaska salmon as possible, but in softgel form!
The key advantage of our cold press method and using free-swimming Alaska salmon is that our oil is naturally high in the nutrients linked to so many health benefits.† And not just one or two essential fatty acids – Wild Alaskan Salmon oil provides all of them.
That means you get the health benefits of DHA (Doco-sahexaenoic Acid), EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid), DPA (Docosapentaenoic Acid), LA (Linoleic Acid), ALA (Alpha Linoleic Acid), AA (Arachidonic Acid), GLA (Gamma-Linoleic Acid), and DGLA (Dihomo-Gamma-Linoleic Acid). That’s more omega nutrition than you’ll get with other fish oil supplements that only provide DHA and EPA!
Plus ours also contains naturally occurring phospho- lipids and nutrients such as Vitamins A, D, E and nature’s amazing antioxidant Astaxanthin!†
Our Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is the overall better fish oil. It’s from Alaska salmon harvested in clean waters, extracted in a way that preserves the salmon’s natural healthy, nutrient-rich triglyceride form. You get a full spectrum of essential fatty acids – the very elements that make taking fish oil so important to your good health.†
Plus you get other good nutrients, all in an oil that’s more easily digested and absorbed than more highly processed versions. Salmon’s naturally-occurring Astaxanthin – which is what gives Alaska salmon and our oil its beautiful color – also helps to make it less susceptible to oxidation.10
And you can feel good knowing our Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is 100% made in the USA, with respect for the marine environment and the healthful bounty it provides.
As a natural, cold pressed extra virgin oil, the levels of essential fatty acids in our Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil along with the naturally occurring vitamins A, D, E and Astaxanthin will vary as they do in the wild Alaska salmon. We do ensure that the oil provides the levels of Omega-3 EPA and DHA stated on our label, but, even though the other nutrients are indeed present, we do not list specific amounts because of their natural variability.
