All Fish Oil is NOT the same!
We recommend PRN Physician Recommended Nutriceuticals. Our patients have experienced dry eye relief, improved macula support against and even systemic effects such as improved lipid profiles.
It was founded on the idea that a superior nutriceutical product line, endorsed by leading physicians and delivered to patients in a convenient way could significantly support eye health. The impressive body of support in the use of omega-3s is inspiring, but unfortunately, not all omega-3 products are the same. At PRN, we are committed to providing you with the purest and safest nutriceuticals helping you to lead a happier and healthier life.
What makes PRN different is superior formulations. PRN omega-3 products contain a concentrated amount of both EPA and DHA. Their omega-3 products are in a cleaned triglyceride form. Many other brands of Omega-3 products are low quality, unpurified, or are sold in a synthetic, ethyl ester form. This form, which is more difficult to absorb, can leave a fishy odor or after-taste. It could take up to 40 softgels of those to equal the same benefits found in just three softgels of PRN’s products. Their fish oil is so purified that you can take a teaspoon a day in liquid form and never experience a fishy taste at all.
The Omega-3 products you usually find at the stores come in various unpurified formulations.
- Unpurified native oil: This oil is pressed directly from the fish so it is in the well-absorbed triglyceride form. Unfortunately, because it is unpurified, it still may have toxins like PCBs and dioxins typically found in larger fish.
- Ethyl ester based omega-3s: Many manufacturers chemically remove the toxins from the native oil, and as a result convert the omega-3s to an ethyl ester form. Though the product is free of toxins, it is now poorly absorbed and may require as many as 40 capsules to equal the benefit of four PRN softgels.
- Re-esterified triglyceride form Omega-3s : PRN continues the process to one more step. By removing the alcohol (ester) the omega-3s are then in cleaned triglyceride form after the toxins have been removed, the final purified product is more easily absorbed by the body and does not have the fishy odor or after-taste observed in the other forms.
PRN provides our customers the most scientifically–based, clean and efficacious nutritional supplements possible. The science behind their products is important to us. Each product has been carefully formulated, reviewed and approved by an independent medical advisory panel and then distributed only through physician offices.
