Thanks to a remarkably low incidence of heart disease among Eskimo people (despite high fat intake) science has looked into the cardio protective effects of fish oils and uncovered many other health benefits. The flesh of deep-sea fish such as salmon contains high amounts of the therapeutically active Omega 3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These essential fatty acids play a key role in a range of body processes from regulating blood pressure to assisting with inflammation.
In the past, some have found that supplementing with Salmon Oil has left them with fishy reflux. Now there is a solution to Fish Breath! Patented technology has enabled Thompson's to release new Reflux-Free Salmon Oil. Micro-emulsion of the fish oil means that it is dispersed into millions of tiny droplets thereby minimising and masking the odour that comes from standard fish oils that form a layer on the surface of the gastric juice. The smell is further masked by the addition of natural orange oil.
Thompson's Reflux-Free Salmon Oil capsules can now be swallowed or even chewed without any fish burps afterwards! In fact the soft capsules can be squeezed into water or juice - an ideal dosage form for young children. Other standard fish oil supplements create a fishy-smelling reflux that can last up to 2 hours afterwards. As an additional masking agent, natural orange oil has been added to give a pleasant flavour to the capsules. The orange in this formulation is 100% natural orange derived from cold pressed Australian Valencia oranges.
Thompson's rigorous quality control procedures test all raw materials to ensure no chemical pollutants such as PCBs, mercury and lead.
Fish Oils are important for a variety of functions in the human body. Epidemiological research suggests that those populations where there is a better ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 oils have improved wellbeing generally.
Fish oils may assist with healthy heart function; the relief of joint problems; aid skin conditions such as eczema; and assist in easing menstrual pain and cramps. Fish oils have also been found to assist with allergies. Research has also looked at the use of fish oils in assisting with mood
