OmegaGuard Dietary Supplement

Ultra-pure, full-spectrum potency of seven omega-3s

The Challenge - According to the Centers for Disease Control and the American Heart Association (AHA), heart disease — specifically coronary artery disease — is still the number one cause of death of men and women in the United States. And while it was once considered a man's disease, today more women than men die from heart disease. And unfortunately, at least 100 million Americans have one or more risk factors for heart disease.

To reduce the risk of heart disease, the AHA recommends eating two servings of fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids each week. But most Americans eat fish only three times per month or less. Moreover, there are growing concerns about unsafe levels of contaminants such as mercury and lead that are now commonly found in many fish.

OmegaGuard - Ultra-pure OmegaGuard, the world’s finest fish oil that delivers a full spectrum of seven omega-3s including EPA, DHA, ALA, and more.

• Research shows that high levels of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may:
- Help reduce the risk of heart disease †(3)

- Help retain healthy triglyceride levels *(5)
- Help retain normal blood pressure *(4)
- Support brain (2) , visual (1) , and joint function *(6)
• Over 4,500 research studies on omega-3 fatty acids' effects on overall health have been conducted in the last 25 years.
• The average American intake of EPA and DHA is only 0.1 to 0.2 g/day, even though the American Heart Association recommends at least two fish meals per week to provide an
intake of about 0.3 to 0.5 g/day of EPA and DHA.
• Most American diets provide more than ten times as much omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acids,
even though there is general scientific agreement that individuals should consume more
omega-3 and less omega-6 fatty acids to promote good health.

Research shows that high levels of omega-3 fatty acids promote cardiovascular health and help
retain normal blood pressure and triglyceride levels.*


THE SHAKLEE DIFFERENCE – THE NEW STANDARD IN PURITY AND FULL-SPECTRUM POTENCY
