A heart healthy encounter…

We set up our 10′ x 10′ booth at the NBC4 Health & Fitness Expo in Washington, DC this past spring and we were excited to talk to folks about the heart health benefits of EPA & DHA Omega-3’s.  We had our Omega-3 supplements on display and were making sales throughout the day. Lisa Townsend with Sister to Sister stopped by to see what it was all about.

Fish Dish of the Month

by Sarah P.

Ed Note: Fish is not only a great source of EPA and DHA Omega-3s, but it is also a good source of protein and minerals such as zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and selenium. Since most people don’t eat fish every day, our fish oil supplements are a great choice to get a daily intake of EPA & DHA Omega-3. The Wiley family thinks you should both take fish oil supplements AND eat sustainable fish as often as possible. On those days that you do have the opportunity to eat fish, we’re here to help with some recipe ideas. Enjoy! Read more »

Why we use Alaskan Pollock

Uncategorized

by Sam Wiley

This is a question we get asked a lot: what’s special about Alaska Pollock? It’s a great question, because it gets at the heart of what’s unique and special about our whole family of Fish Oil supplements.

You can find Omega-3 Fish Oil products almost anywhere: the grocery store, the internet, the pharmacy, and your local health food store. But what fish species are used to make these products? And where and how are they caught? You may be surprised to learn that nearly every fish oil product sold in the U.S. is made from Peruvian Anchovy caught in South America.

Fish Dish of the Month: Grilled Hake Tacos with Mango-Peach Salsa

Uncategorized

Finished Meal Beautiful and delicious, just like a summer meal should be.

I grew up imagining myself naturally skilled in a great number of things. Take cooking, for example. When I went to college, I knew only how to roast a chicken (which my mother insisted I learn, much to my chagrin – and to hers, when she couldn’t convince me to touch the thing raw). But somehow I still had the idea that I not only loved cooking, but was also tremendously gifted at it. I gradually figured out how to do basic things, like cook pasta or scramble eggs, and was so pleased with myself that I attempted making soup without a recipe. Read more »

OMEGA-3 CLINICAL EFFECTS – THE CRITICAL ISSUE

News

Although measurements of absorption and bioavailability may be used to support claims about “superiority” of one form of omega-3 over another, it prevents us from focusing on the critical issue – their ultimate clinical effects. This point is shown by looking at the long term clinical effects of fish oil on risk factors for cardiovascular disease (Figure 1) when an effective dosage of EPA and DHA is reached. Read more »

The Truth About Prostate Cancer And Omega-3

Uncategorized

By Chris S.

Prostate and other cancers thrive in an inflammatory environment, so it is not surprising that reducing cellular inflammation has been shown repeatedly to decrease cancer risks. The best-researched natural anti-inflammatory agents are Omega-3 fish oil, vitamin D and plant based polyphenols. High levels of Omega-3 have consistently been associated with reduced mortality in prostate cancer (1). A review of 19 studies published in 2010 showed a 63% reduction in mortality in those with a high fish intake (2).

THE THREE FORMS OF OMEGA-3

News

Introduction

There are three forms of omega-3s found in supplements; triglycerides, ethyl esters, or phospholipids (see Figure 1). As more retail brands than ever tout the superiority of one form over the other through “on-pack” claims and whether one form is “more natural”, it’s easy to get confused about what they really are.
