In order to get the most out of LifePak or LifePak Essentials Super A comprehensive formula, Pharmanex recommends adding MarineOmega to your nutritional foundation.
7Measure your antioxidant levels The Pharmanex Biophotonic ScannerA sophisticated, non invasive procedure that measures carotenoid antioxidant levels in human tissue.Pharmanex scientists collaborated with the university researcher Dr Werner Gellerman to develop the Pharmanex biophotonic SCANNER – a technology that produces highly sophisticated information about physical well being through an incredibly simple procedure.Just place the palm of the hand in front of a safe, low-energy, blue light laser to obtain an immediate reading of your carotenoid antioxidant level translated into a skin carotenoid score.The Scanner enables you to track your antioxidant carotenoid levels so you can measure the effectiveness of your lifestyle choices along with your Pharmanex supplementation programme, including LifePak or LifePak Essentials Super A with MarineOmega.
8Essential Fatty Acids Omega-3 Alpha-Linolenic Acid (LNA): from plant sourcesEicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA): from marine sourcesDocosahexaenoic Acid (DHA): from marine sourcesThere are two categories of fatty acids that are essential to Human survival - omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids. Our bodies have the ability to convert these two essential fatty acids into any other fatty acid the body needs (for example omega 9). But omega 3s and 6s cannot be made by the body, and therefore must be consumed in our diets in sufficient quantities.There are sub-categories to each of these two essential fatty acids. This slide shows three major omega-3 fatty acids: LNA, also known as Alpha-linolenic acid which is obtained from plant sources, while EPA and DHA are obtained from marine sources.Even though we can obtain LNA from plant sources, the marine sources provide EPA and DHA which offer more health benefits than the plant source.And while the body can convert a small amount of LNA into EPA and DHA, it is easier for the body to convert EPA and DHA into LNA.
9Dietary Sources of Omega-3 Plant sourcesGreen leafy vegetables Flaxseed oil Canola oil Soybeans Walnuts or Brazil nutsMarine sourcesFatty fish Salmon Herring MackerelA concentrate of omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, are both present in high amounts in MarineOmega. Alpha-linolenic acid can be obtained from green leafy vegetables, flaxseed oil, nuts and soybeans. It is important to couple plant sources with marine sources of omega-3, since the body’s conversion of plant sources of omega-3 is slow and incomplete. On the other hand, omega-3 fatty acids from fatty fish are direct sources of EPA and DHA. MarineOmega provides omega-3 from four types of fatty fish and krill.
10Essential Fatty Acids Omega-6 Linoleic Acid (LA) Arachidonic Acid (AA) Dietary sources: sunflower, safflower, corn oil, animal fat, fried foodThere are two types of omega-6 fatty acids. Linoleic acid is obtained from plant sources, while arachidonic acid is obtained from animal sources. We can find omega-6 in many foods, including sunflower, safflower, and corn oils, and animal fat. Many of these oils are used in cooking, and so fried food is a frequent source of omega-6 fatty acids.
11Fatty Acid Metabolism LNA EPA DHA LA AA Anti-inflammatory Omega-3 (Plant)Anti-inflammatoryEicosanoids, 3-PGTriglyceridesCardiac RhythmBrain FunctionOmega-3 (Marine)EPADHA1/25LAOmega-6 (Plant)Omega-6 (Animal)AAThis diagram briefly reviews the metabolism of fatty acids.Our body converts alpha-linoleic acid into EPA and DHA therefore, it is most efficient to obtain our omega-3 fatty acids from marine sources.As you can see, when we obtain essential fatty acids from plant sources, our body converts them into EPA and DHA, but this conversion is only a 1/25 ratio. A maximum of 21% and 9% of ALA can be converted to EPA and DHA, respectively. What’s even more interesting is that diets high in linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid) inhibit the conversion of ALA to EPA and DHA. Omega-3 fatty acids are metabolized into beneficial compounds such as anti-inflammatory prostaglandin compounds, and DHA, which is involved in heart and brain function.Our body converts linoleic acid into arachidonic acid, the active omega-6 in animals. As you can see, this type of fatty acid is metabolized into pro-inflammatory prostaglandin compounds.Pro-inflammatory2-PG
12Fatty acids and modern diet 102030200019001800(-10,000 )Total FatSaturated Fatn-6n-3Now that we have defined omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, let’s learn why these fatty acids have become such a concern to our health in recent years. Throughout evolution, humans consumed an equal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Beginning in the mid- to late-1800s, as total fat increased, saturated fat and omega-6 intake consumption increased as well. On the other hand, omega-3 fatty acid intake decreased substantially. This has resulted in a current imbalance of omega-6 to omega-3 of approximately 20:1.Humans evolved with optimal ratio of omega-6:omega-3 (1:1)
13Balanced fatty acid intake Omega-6Omega-3Now why is this imbalance bad? Throughout evolution, our intake of essential fatty acids was approximately equal. If we refer back to the fatty acid metabolism diagram, this would contribute to a balance of inflammation.An optimal balance existed through evolution (1:1)
14The hazard of an imbalanced equation InflammationOmega-3Omega-6Over the past 150 years, our diet has drastically changed, resulting in a pro-inflammatory scenario. Remember that omega-6 fatty acids are metabolized into pro-inflammatory prostaglandins.Current diets drastically offsets balance (20:1)
15In balance with MarineOmega™ By consuming more omega-3 fatty acids in foods and supplements, we are able to balance our essential fatty acid nutrition in favor of the anti-inflammatory scenario. Let’s look at the health impact that the current essential fatty acid imbalance has created.MarineOmega™ balances essential fatty acid nutrition
16What can fatty acid imbalance do to your health? High intake of omega-3 promotes anti-inflammatory help to state Pro-Inflammatory Conditions:Eczema, Psoriasis, DermatitisCardiovascular conditionsArthritisAllergiesImmune disordersIt is becoming widely implicated that inflammation is involved in a wide variety of pathologies, including skin conditions, cancer, heart disease, arthritis, allergies, and immune disorders.A number of recommendations have been set forth by leading organizations, such as the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, American Heart Association, and International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids .
17How to balance fatty acids Recommendation:Limit omega-6 while increasing omega-3 in your dietSupplement with omega-3 fatty acidsThe consensus is that we should limit the amount of omega-6 fatty acids in the diet by decreasing the use of omega-6 dominant vegetable oils such as safflower, sunflower, peanut and corn oils. In addition, we should increase the intake of omega-3 fatty acids to balance the types of fatty acids acquired through our diet and supplements.
18MarineOmega™ Helps Balance Fatty Acid Nutrition Supports Cardiovascular HealthSupports Joint HealthSupports Immune HealthSupports Skin HealthSupports Brain Health Benefits From Krill PhospholipidsMarineOmega helps balance our dietary intake of fatty acids, that currently favor high levels of omega-6 fatty acids. Balanced essential fatty acid nutrition is essential for cardiovascular health, joint mobility, normal immune function, skin health, and brain function.
19MarineOmega™ Ingredients ConstituentsUltra-pure fatty acids from fish oilKrill oil phospholipidsVitamin ENatural lemon oilMarineOmega provides high quality omega-3 fatty acids from fish and krill oil. Vitamin E and the carotenoid antioxidant Astaxanthin are included in the formula to provide antioxidant protection and ensure freshness and quality. Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil are highly unsaturated and may easily undergo oxidation. These powerful antioxidants present in MarineOmega help prevent the pro-oxidant effects of fish oil, and also provides nutritional benefit. Natural lemon oil is added for a pleasant aroma and flavor.

21Krill Oil (Euphasia pacifica) Zooplankton/crustacean from Antartic OceanMost abundant biomassEuphasia pacifica, commonly known as Krill, are small shrimp or prawn-like crustaceans found in oceans off the West coast of Vancouver Island, Russia, Ukraine, Antarctica, and Japan. Amazingly, Krill is the most abundant biomass in the world, with less than 1% of the resources harvested each year. Krill live most of the year at the bottom of the ocean, coming to the surface to feed on algae for only three months of the year. The consumption of algae dramatically increases Krill’s omega-3 content. Krill are a primary nutrition source for whales, fish, sea birds… and are considered a delicacy in Japan.
22Krill Oil (Euphasia pacifica) Unique Features:High in phospholipids (40%)Rich in EPA and DHANaturally contains a flavonoid and carotenoid antioxidants (astaxanthin) (<1% harvested)Krill Oil is a marine oil offering a unique and natural combination of phospholipids high in EPA and DHA, potent antioxidants such as vitamins A, E, carotenoids (astaxanthin), a flavonoid extracted from a non-plant or algae source and omega-3 and omega-9 (oleic) fatty acids. Krill Oil offers an ideal ratio of omega-3:omega-6 at approximately 15:1.
23Krill Oil (Euphasia pacifica) Phospholipid form targeted for use by brain and cell membranes2GlycerolEPA or DHA3EPA or DHADHA appears to be an extremely important fatty acid for brain function. Research has shown that DHA and other long chain fatty acids are associated with improved visual and cognitive development. In addition, phospholipids, naturally found in krill oil, are important in forming nerve membranes and in protecting nerve membranes from toxic injury and free radical attack.Krill oil, with its phospholipid structure and high content of omega-3 fatty acids, provides a unique brain health benefit not provided by typical marine oils. A standard marine triglyceride is composed of a glycerol molecule and three long chain fatty acids. EPA and DHA are randomly present on all three of these fatty acids. During digestion, the fatty acids in the number 1 and number 3 positions are cleaved by enzymes and are absorbed into the body as isolated components. The glycerol molecule is typically absorbed with the number2 fatty acid intact, essentially protecting the nutrients present in this position. The isolated DHA and EPA will either be burned for calories (fat is an energy source), or attached to other glycerol molecules in the number 2 position.Marine Triglyceride
24Krill Oil (Euphasia pacifica) 11EPA or DHA22DHAGlycerolGlycerolNow let’s look at Krill phospholipids. A phospholipid, on the other hand, is composed of a glycerol molecule, two long chain fatty acids, and a phosphate group (typically phosphatidylcholine).We’ve already mentioned that phospholipids are important for brain and nerve development. An added benefit is that phospholipids are absorbed better than standard triglycerides. Now the third and most exciting benefit of Krill is that it preferentially places DHA in the number 2 position. During digestion, the number 1 position fatty acid and the phospholipid are cleaved by enzymes and are absorbed into the body as isolated components, and the glycerol and number 2 fatty acids are absorbed intact.3Phosphate groupMarine TriglycerideKrill Phospholipid
25Krill Oil (Euphasia pacifica) 1EPA or DHAPhosphate group2DHAGlycerolBy preferentially placing DHA in the protected number 2 position, Krill provides a form of essential fatty acids that can be targeted for use by the brain and cell membranes. This absorbed glycerol/DHA molecule can be incorporated into the cell membrane, allowing it to become a messenger for brain function and prostaglandin synthesis. The cleaved EPA and DHA will either be burned for calories, or attached to other glycerol molecules in the number 2 position, while the phospholipid phosphate group will be incorporated into cell membranes to form cell structure and other bodily functions. Combining Krill oil with omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil provide unique benefits by providing a significant dosage of EPA+DHA from fish oil along with the unique brain health benefits provided by krill phospholipids.Krill Phospholipid
26Scientific Substantiation Supports cardiovascular health1Decrease pain and tenderness in joint stiffness2Supports against UV- induced skin damage, and photoageing3Help to Improve brain content of DHA, mental capacity, and mental health4Scientific studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil support the cardiovascular system. Several studies correlating fish consumption (providing omega-3 fatty acids) and longevity from cardiovascular health have shown that consumption of fish is associated with a substantial improvement in longevity.Research has shown that supplementation with fish oils can markedly reduce interleukin-1beta and inflammatory eicosanoid metabolite production, and results in significant reductions in morning stiffness and the number of painful joints in rheumatoid arthritis patients.Some evidence suggests that omega-3 fatty acids may be effective in protection against UV-induced skin damage, cancers, and photoaging. This may be due to their anti-inflammatory properties acting to reduce the UV-induced release of cytokines and other mediators in a variety of skin cell types.An association between the brain content of DHA, mental capacity, and mental health has been observed. The ratio of membrane omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids can be modulated by dietary intake, and this ratio influences neurotransmission and prostaglandin formation, processes that are vital in the maintenance of normal brain function.1.
