Icelandic Men Have Highest Longevity in the World
Consume Over 10 Times More Omega-3s Than Americans
BOSTON, MA - OCTOBER 2008 - The health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids for heart, brain, skin, joints and immunity have been well established through research. Now, further validation comes out of Iceland, where cold water fish (omega-3) consumption is one of the highest in the world, and well over 10 times the annual U.S. consumption. Statistics just released show that Icelandic men have the highest longevity of any men on earth—around 79.4 years, and both men and women in Iceland consume an average of 90 kilos of cold water fish per year.
Americans consume only 7.36 kilos per year, according to statistics from 2005, and we have the biggest meat consumption vs fish compared to any European country, which bodes poorly for health and longevity.
Stocking up on omega-3s is the right idea. Higher intake of stable, natural fish oil is associated with reduced deaths from the two biggest killers in the U.S., cancer and heart disease.
But be careful of the omega-3 fatty acids you choose, warns international fish oil expert Tom Saldeen, M.D., Ph.D., author of All About Omega-3: The Vitamin from the Ocean (SwedeHealth Press). He identifies two critical factors that can either make or break fish oil in relation to its health benefits. “Freshness is key as rancid fish oils produce free radicals that can destroy important nutrients and actually cause damage to our bodies. Full spectrum fish oil is also essential,” he says. “Full spectrum means it’s bioidentical to the omega-3 fatty acid proportions found in both fish and humans.”
According to Dr. Saldeen, who has published over 400 scientific papers, mainly in cardiovascular medicine, the most clinically studied fish oil in the world is Eskimo-3 from Enzymatic Therapy, Inc. in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
“Eskimo-3 has no alterations, deletions, or spiking that would alter the oil from the form found in nature,” explains Cheryl Myers, Enzymatic Therapy’s VP Health Sciences. “Eskimo-3 has extraordinary purity; it is mercury, lead and pesticide-free, and has the highest freshness index of any major brand of fish oil. This shelf-stable formula is up to 10 times more stable than leading fish oil products and has no fishy taste or smell.”
Enzymatic Therapy (ETI) is committed to the sustainability of the planet's resources. Eskimo-3 fish oil is obtained only from non-endangered species of cold-water fish harvested from areas not subjected to over-fishing. ETI is North America’s leading manufacturer and distributor of over 200 dietary supplements and natural medicines. It is the first and only dietary supplement manufacturer that’s a drug GMP audited facility and also a certified organic processor. For more information, visit www.enzymatictherapy.com.
