Chicago-Biosyntrx this week unveiled ZoOmega-3, a concentrated dietary supplement produced from cold-water fish. ZoOmega-3 is intended to enhance eye and body health and disease prevention.

Each capsule of ZoOmega-3 contains 300 mg of ethyl EPA Omega-3 fatty acid, suggested to appropriately inhibit the downstream metabolism of Omega 7 fatty acids, preventing excessive production of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins, which have been suggested in the literature to contribute to silent inflammation when not kept in check.

In addition, each ZoOmega-3 capsule also includes 200 mg of ethyl DHA, another Omega-3 fatty acid, suggested to increase cellular permeability, allowing nutrients such as amino acids, antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals to enter cells to address free radical damage and oxidation, as well as to protect mitochondria DNA.

“Excessive amounts of Omega-3 fatty acid can interfere with the body’s ability to mount a life-saving inflammatory response when needed, such as fevers to combat viral or bacterial attack, swelling to protect broken bones, or clotting to stop bleeding,” said Spencer Thornton, MD, president, chief medical officer, and one of the Biosyntrx founders.

Dr. Thornton went on to explain that Biosyntrx recommends one ZoOmega-3 capsule a day for health maintenance and disease prevention, particularly on days that fish is not included in the diet.
