Garden of Life’s new Ocean’s 3 Omega 3 Product Line

Garden of Life has just released a revolutionary new line of Omega 3 products called Oceans 3. This new line combines high quality Omega 3s with Fucoxanthin and Astaxanthin for a combination they are calling OmegaXanthin.

Fucoxanthin is a powerful antioxidant and has been shown to support normal cardiovascular function, promote a healthy response to inflammation, and provide antioxidant cellular protection. A carotenoid derived from brown seaweed, Fucothin is a dynamic ocean-based antioxidant. Antioxidants are noted for their ability to fight free radicals, which can cause damage at the cellular level. Fucoxanthin has been shown to exert its protective effects directly in fat cells. Since metabolism requires oxygen, fat cells are a prime culprit for oxidative stress and, unfortunately, Americans are in no short supply of fat cells.

Astaxanthin is an extremely powerful antioxidant carotenoid from sea algae. Astaxanthin is a well-studied compound that has been shown to be 14 times stronger than vitamin E, 53 times stronger than betacarotene, and 64 times stronger than vitamin C. As an antioxidant, astaxanthin benefits cardiovascular health, supports the body’s natural response to inflammation, immune system health and eye health, and it even supports healthy skin, bones and joints.

Omega 3 fatty acids are not a single nutrient, but a collection of several nutrients. The primary omega-3 oil, ALA, is found in flaxseed oil as well as pumpkin seeds and walnuts. Fish, including deep sea fish, salmon, cod, sardines, and mackerel, and fish oils contain the other important omega-3 oils DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). Numerous studies indicate, however, that the EPA and DHA found in fish and fish oil are more biologically potent that those from ALA—making fish and fish oil the better nutritional choice.

Omega-3 benefits, especially from DHA and EPA, are numerous and significant. They support heart, brain, blood vessel, nervous system, cellular, immune, and joint health. Additionally, they help maintain already healthy blood pressure and blood sugars levels. But that’s not all. They also serve as energy reserves, for oxygen transport, for synthesizing hormones, and for normal healing.

In addition to this great combination of Omega 3s, fucoxanthin and Astaxanthin, some of the new products have added herbs to enhance brain health, hormone health, or children’s health. That’s right! There is a new Children’s chewable in this new line. Way to go Garden of Life!

Flu Nourishment

Conventional medical advice ranges from wearing face masks to taking the anti-viral drug called tamiflu (which can have many serious side effects.) It is interesting to note that not once in all the media broadcasts have we heard any mention of building natural immunity. Fortunately, we do not have to sit back and listen to the news about swine flu feeling helpless and anxious. We can be proactive by simply nourishing ourselves and our families.

Household Toxins

I have been diagnosed with Systemic Lupus and survived. I feel very, very strongly that part of my recovery was related to the fact that God, without my knowing it, removed chemicals like chlorine from my home and my life. Then, after I read “The Maker’s Diet” by Jordan Rubin, I continued the process of […]

Trans Fat

Trans Fat Free and Healthy? Jordan Rubin from Extraordinary Health Magazine The war against trans fats has been an ongoing battle that reached a peak in recent years. In 2003 the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decided that trans fats should be listed on food labels. A year later, mounting scientific data led an […]

Brain works best when…

Research has shown that sleep is when the day’s memories are consolidated in the brain. It is also when the body secretes most of its growth hormone, which is why children who don’t get enough sleep tend to be shorter than average, he says. Sleep is also a time when the body uses energy from fat cells, which is one reason why too little sleep is linked with obesity, Dr. Evans says.

Men or Women?

Who’s Healthier–Men or Women? By Nicki Rubin Several months ago, my husband, Jordan, and I hosted a women-only Weekend of Wellness conference in Atlanta. One of the topics that got batted around was the question of who’s healthier—men or women? It’s not my intention to pit one gender against another, but it’s an intriguing question […]

Natural Prenatal Vitamins

If you are what you eat, and your baby is what you eat, then ask yourself: Do you want your baby to evolve from synthetic, chemical “isolates”, or from an organic whole-food complex rich with a bounty of phytonutrients both of your bodies recognize and accept as food?

Is Organic a Fraud?

Is the USDA’s Certified Organic Label a “Fraud?” by Jordan Rubin I’ve written on this issue in the past, but due to the buzz surrounding the recently published article in the New York Times, I thought it necessary to restate my position. First let me say that I agree with Michael Potter that the growth […]

A Deadly Disposition

Hard-heartedness is defined as “an absence of concern for the welfare of others,” being “cold-hearted,” or “lacking in feeling; pitiless; cold.” The Bible contains numerous references to people being hard-hearted, and none of them carry positive connotations or results. One such reference is found in the person of Pharaoh.
