QUELL Fish Oil
QUELL Fish Oil is Supercritical CO2 extracted oils in triglyceride form, manufactured in Germany exclusively for Douglas Laboratories. QUELL Fish Oil is unique among other fish oils for its’ supercritical extraction, purity, bioavailability and concentrations, and is one of the essential supplements in the 21-Day Cleanse!
Supercritical CO2 extraction technology ensures that omega-3 fatty acids are extracted without high temperatures, oxygen or traditional chemical solvents. The result is a fish oil of exceptional purity that can deliver concentrated amounts of EPA and DHA in one serving.
QUELL Fish Oil EPA/DHA Plus D provides a 3:2 ratio of EPA to DHA plus 25 mcg (1,000 IU) of Vitamin D3 per softgel.‡
Supercritical CO2 advanced technology is the superior protection against oxidation. The extraction method of fish oil uses less heat and no chemical solvents when compared to molecular distillation, resulting in fewer unwanted isomer formations and “cleaner” oil.
Supercritical fluid extraction uses CO2 (carbon dioxide) instead of oxygen to gently extract the fatty acids, which also protects them from microorganisms that can’t survive without oxygen. No chemical preservatives, solvents, or undesirable compounds are found in QUELL Fish Oil.
Heavy metal and contaminant levels measure significantly lower than the standard.
Recent scientific data shows the triglyceride form of fish oil is better absorbed when compared to ethyl esters. Recent data have demonstrated that omega-3 fatty acids delivered in a triglyceride form may result in greater plasma levels and a higher omega-3 index compared with omega-3 fatty acids delivered in the form of ethyl esters.
Many fish oils contain only about 30% omega-3 fatty acids, of which roughly 18% is EPA and 12% DHA. The remaining 70% is a varying mixture of other components. In other words, regular fish oil contains less than a third of the desired active ingredients and more than two thirds of “other” components.
These other components may include cholesterol, omega-6 fatty acids, saturated fatty acids, oxidation products and contaminants. Highly concentrated fish oil, like QUELL Fish Oil, provide at least 75% active ingredients, leaving less room for nonessential compounds.
QUELL Fish Oil EPA/DHA+D is indicated for those individuals that want the added benefit of vitamin D3 with EPA and DHA in pure and potent softgels.
The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids continue to emerge and numerous health organizations around the world recommend adequate daily intake of EPA and DHA. Data continues to accumulate that supports EPA and DHA in cardiovascular health as well as many other areas, including neurological health, vision health, and joint health.
The omega-3 fatty acid EPA is the direct precursor for the prostaglandins, which are involved in a wide range of physiological functions. DHA plays a major role in the structural integrity of neuronal membranes. DHA is essential for neurological and visual development and is vital throughout pregnancy to support fetal brain growth and formation of the retina and visual cortex.
As the most abundant fatty acid in the brain, adequate amounts of DHA are needed throughout infancy and adulthood for ongoing optimal function. Vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine vitamin” is an essential vitamin that plays many important roles in the proper functioning of the body.
Vitamin D is thought to play a role in cardiovascular health. Vitamin D is fat- soluble, meaning it needs a fat source to be absorbed properly. Therefore, combining vitamin D with omega-3 fatty acids may help facilitate adequate vitamin D3 absorption into the body.
