Wow! I did not know this. I know where I’ll be getting my fish oil from in future.
Many people are familiar with the benefits of fish oil, because of the high content of omega-3's that it contains.
However, most people don't realise how quickly fish oil goes rancid. A study in Norway looked at 113 different over-the-counter fish oil capsules and found that 95% of them were rancid.
As the omega-3 becomes oxidized free radicals become a by product. Your body doesn’t like free radicals. Free radicals encourage inflammation and cancer. Animal studies show that oxidized fats may cause organ damage, inflammation, carcinogenesis, and atherosclerosis.
So you DO NOT want to be consuming rancid fish oil!
One of the unique ingredients of Young Living's OmegaGize is that it contains a blend of essential oils that include Clove essential oil. Clove essential oil has the highest ORAC anti-oxidant score ever recorded - in the millions! The Clove oil helps to protect the fish oil from going rancid.
This is why the essential oils in OmegaGize help to keep the fish oil TEN TIMES more stable to ensure freshness throughout preparation, while in the softgel and during metabolism.
I don't know about you, but for me I would prefer to spend a little extra on a fish oil that I know is supporting my health, rather than on a cheap version off the shelf that may be rancid and contributing towards heart disease.
