The USANA Difference
Omega-3 fatty acids play an important part in many body systems that contribute to optimal health. BiOmega™ offers a convenient way to get these valuable nutrients when you’re not consuming enough fish. Plus, this unique formula includes an extra dose of vitamin D and lemon oil to eliminate fishy aftertastes.

USANA BiOmega™ supplement difference:

  • Each capsule delivers 100 IU of vitamin D
  • Formulated with lemon oil to eliminate the fishy aftertaste associated with most fish oil supplement
  • Effective
  • Safe
  • Science-based
  • Pharmaceutical Quality

Health Benefits

  • Supports sound cardiovascular, immune, and joint health
  • Provides advanced and guaranteed levels of EPA and DHA—two long-chain omega-3 fatty acids important for memory and learning
  • Critical for promoting healthy pregnancies and healthy babies
  • Plays a role in many important cellular processes critical to the body’s heatlhy functioning

No nutritional program is complete without a high-quality source of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. USANA® BiOmega fish oil supplement contains a balanced, concentrated source of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids including EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) in a convenient capsule format.

Omega-3 fatty acids support cardiovascular health, proper brain, neural, and visual development, as well as maintenance of bone, joint, immune, and cellular health*.

Summary

– EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are required for optimal health*.

– Because our bodies are inefficient in making EPA and DHA it is recommended to get these omega-3 fatty acids through the diet or nutritional supplementation.

– Dietary sources of EPA and DHA include fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines, and anchovies. However, most individuals only obtain 30-100 mg of EPA/DHA daily falling far below the recommended amounts of between 250 mg to 2 grams EPA/DHA per day.

-Adequate intakes of omega-3 fatty acids including EPA and DHA have been found to support healthy joints, brain development, cell membrane integrity, skin and eye health, cardiovascular function, child development, and a healthy immune system.*

  • USANA’s BiOmega is produced from cold water, deep-sea fish oil from a fishery that uses sustainable practices and renewable resources. BiOmega includes more potent dosages of DHA and EPA than many competitors in a highly bioavailable form and fortified with vitamin D.
  •  BiOmega is purified to be virtually free of contaminants and flavored with lemon oil to minimize the fishy aftertaste.
  • Each serving (2 capsules) of BiOmega has 1200 mg total of omega-3 fatty acids. Of which 580 mg are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 470 mg are docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
  • USANA’s BiOmega supplement is a fish oil supplement that contains a balanced, concentrated source of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids including EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) in a convenient capsule form.  USANA’s BiOmega Jr. is a fish oil supplement that delivers appropriate amounts of the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and vitamin D, in a delectable, sugar-free, flavored gel format that is friendly for kids or adults who have a hard time swallowing capsules.
  • Research has clearly shown that essential fatty acids are important for developing babies, and many women don’t get enough from diet alone. During pregnancy, omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA, support brain, eye, and nerve development, especially during the last trimester.*
  • BiOmega is purified using high vacuum molecular distillation. (We actually distil the product twice to ensure a maximum level of purity.)Molecular distillation removes impurities (heavy metals, dioxides, etc.), saturated fats, and other undesirable organic compounds, leaving only the key beneficial components of the fish oil. Molecular distillation is gentle with exceptionally low heat residence time and is performed in a vacuum to further reduce heat requirement. Additionally, the BiOmega is a whole-body oil (not a liver oil) made from wild caught anchovies and sardines – small fish with short lifespans which are naturally much lower in contaminants than larger fish (such as salmon, tuna, etc.)
  • All of USANA’s products, including BiOmega, are completely free of trans-fatty acids.
  • BiOmega does not contain vitamin A. Unless added by the manufacturer, only fish oil supplements specifically made from fish liver (such as cod liver oil) will contain vitamin A.

 

The Science of BiOmega

Fats are an essential part of our diet. However, we should limit unhealthy fat intake and encourage consumption of healthy fats. Saturated fats found in meat, milk, and cheese help to promote the formation of artery-clogging fatty deposits. The trans-fatty acids (found in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils) are even more harmful to our health. Monounsaturated fats found in vegetable oils do not promote arterial fat deposits and polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as the omega-3 fatty acids, are the most beneficial to overall health.

Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play many roles in our bodies. They are the biosynthetic precursors of a family of compounds called eicosanoids (prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and leukotrienes). These compounds are hormone-like substances that control many naturally occurring health processes in our bodies.

It is important to maintain an appropriate balance of omega-3 and omega-6 either from the diet or nutritional supplement, as these two classes of fatty acids work together to promote health.* Yet despite the clear health benefits associated with omega-3 fatty acids, dietary surveys indicate that most of us do not obtain enough omega-3 fatty acids from our diets.

In 2002, the American Heart Association issued new guidance on fish and fish oil consumption because results of large-scale epidemiological studies and randomized controlled studies showed that omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil support cardiovascular health. For example, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) help maintain healthy high-density lipoprotein and triglyceride levels in plasma, which are important for supporting healthy arterial function and blood flow. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of BiOmega provides 1050mg of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. [See nutrition information for total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol content].*

Omega-3 fatty acids support brain development and structural integrity, impacting biochemical efficiency in the brain and neural development. It is important that women of childbearing age who are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breastfeeding get proper nutrition including consuming adequate amounts of DHA and EPA to support the growth and development of their child. DHA is one of the dominant fats in the nerve cells of fetal and infant brains and plays a role in the healthy development of the visual system. Neural phospholipid membranes selectively concentrate DHA in photoreceptors and some cell-signaling sites, while the retina selectively incorporates EPA to support eye fluidity.*

In addition to those listed above, EPA and DHA are also important components for overall health in young children, adolescents, and adults. Studies have also shown fish oil supplements to be effective in supporting healthy joints, articular cartilage, aid in joint comfort, and supporting bone health. Many studies also indicate that taking omega-3 dietary supplements help support the body’s normal, healthy inflammatory response in response to exercise and everyday activities.*

Your cells have a phospholipid bilayer that acts as a selective barrier—keeping things out or letting them in. Key components of that bilayer, omega-3, and omega-6 fatty acids play a significant role in maintaining our good health at the most basic level. Sufficient levels of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids can help maintain skin’s barrier function to keep it looking healthy.*

In addition, combining fish oil intake with regular exercise is more supportive than exercise alone for helping to maintain a healthy weight and supporting metabolic health.*

The Benefits of BiOmega™

Many experts believe a 1:1 ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 is ideal, as they work together to promote health.*

However, as mentioned above, average diets contain significantly more omega-6 fatty acids. Eating fatty fish can be one way to increase your omega-3 intake. However, it is recommended to consume at least two, six-ounce pieces of fatty fish every single week (104 pieces a year) to meet expert recommendations!

In spite of clear benefits of including fish in the diet, health authorities have warned us to limit our intake of certain species of fish due to concerns about potential contaminants, especially during pregnancy. This is where USANA’s BiOmega comes in.

Supplementing with BiOmega is an effective way to increase omega-3 levels to help maintain a proper balance and support health without the fear of contamination that can come from eating whole fish.*

USANA’s BiOmega is produced from cold water, deep-sea fish oil that comes from a fishery that uses sustainable practices and renewable resources. BiOmega is purified to be virtually free of contaminants and flavored with lemon oil to minimize the fishy aftertaste.

Most purification processes for fish oil remove any vitamin D from the product. Yet, experts now widely believe that an overwhelming majority of people are deficient in vitamin D.

Vitamin D has been shown to have many health benefits and is necessary to support normal bone mineralization and growth, maintenance of muscle strength and coordination, cardiovascular health, and robust and balanced immune function.*

One serving of BiOmega provides a total of 2000 mg fish oil concentrate, 1200mg of total omega-3s including 1050 mg of EPA and DHA, 200 IU of vitamin D, 4 mg of mixed natural tocopherols, and is free of trans-fatty acids.

The USANA Difference

BiOmega is a whole-body oil (not a liver oil) made from anchovies and sardines – small fish with short lifespans, which are naturally much lower in contaminants than larger fish species such as salmon and tuna. In fact, the raw material (pre-refining) oils used in BiOmega are already lower in PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) than established guidelines for finished products. It is then purified using repeated high vacuum molecular distillation, and the finished product is tested again for heavy metals and other contaminants.

BiOmega is purified using repeated high vacuum molecular distillation. This distillation process removes undesirable impurities leaving only the key beneficial components of the fish oil. Because of this molecular distillation process, BiOmega is purified to be virtually free of contaminants and free of trans-fatty acids.

The Benefits of Core Minerals

Minerals are essential elements for optimal health and well-being. Our bodies couldn’t function without them. They play a role in all physiological processes and help balance and regulate our body chemistry.

Core Minerals delivers a dozen minerals plus ultra-trace minerals to help fill gaps in the diet and provide whole-body nutritional support. It also supports the protection and renewal benefits activated by the cell-signaling InCelligence Complex in Vita-Antioxidant. USANA’s cell-signaling technology promotes cellular resilience and health during the normal lifespan of the cell to help you meet your unique health needs.*

The Science of Core Minerals

Core Minerals™ is an excellent source of magnesium. This essential mineral is a co-factor in more than 300 enzyme systems. They control various natural reactions in the body, including:

  • Metabolizing glucose and macronutrients*
  • Supporting the production of cellular energy*
  • Producing protein, DNA, RNA, and glutathione*
  • Maintaining healthy nerve, muscle, and cardiovascular function*

Magnesium is also important for using the calcium found in Core Minerals and the diet. Calcium is the most common mineral in the body, and is essential for healthy bones, teeth, muscle, and nerve function. Having enough calcium isn’t the problem for most people. It’s properly using what you have. So magnesium’s interactions with calcium are important to the structural development of bones. *

The magnesium-and-calcium blends in Core Minerals are composed partly from the ascorbate forms of the nutrients. Ascorbate is a source of another essential micronutrient: vitamin C.

Core Minerals contains high-potency iodine. The mineral is a crucial component in the body’s normal production of thyroid hormones. These hormones help regulate metabolism, growth, reproduction, and the synthesis of protein. Supplemental iodine is especially important for those on a vegetarian diet, avoiding seafood, or restricting their iodized-salt intake.*

Core Minerals is high in zinc, a component of hundreds of enzymes and a mineral that acts as an antioxidant.* Zinc is involved in many processes throughout the body:

  • Supporting normal carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism.*
  • Promoting healthy immune function and healthy vision.*
  • Supporting healthy DNA and RNA replication.*
  • Important for supporting our body’s natural healing process for minor cuts.*
  • Aiding healthy bone structure development.*
  • Supporting connective tissue formation and helps to maintain healthy skin.*

The formula’s high-potency selenium aids the body’s natural ability to regenerate glutathione, an endogenous antioxidant—one made inside the body. Selenium is important in thyroid hormone metabolism, and studies have shown selenium’s importance for maintaining prostate health.

Core Minerals™ is rich in copper, which is a critical component of the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD)— an endogenous antioxidant. Copper also helps form hemoglobin and is also essential for collagen synthesis. So it also plays a role in connective tissue formation.*

Manganese (not to be confused with magnesium) is important for protein and glucose metabolism, and supports normal brain function. It helps maintain healthy connective tissues, bones, arteries, and other organs. Manganese also activates numerous enzymes and supports endogenous antioxidant activity.* Core Minerals is a good source of manganese.

The high-potency chromium in the formula is an important component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF). This helps maintain healthy glucose metabolism already in the normal range.*

Core Minerals is an excellent-source of molybdenum. This trace mineral is an important co-factor for a number of enzymes and is necessary for the metabolism of sulfur-containing amino acids. It also helps the body metabolize proteins and helps maintain strong teeth.*

Core Minerals also contains boron, vanadium, and silicon. Boron supports the body’s ability to use calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus. It also plays a role in healthy brain function. Vanadium helps support healthy serum glucose levels, provided they are already healthy. And, maintaining a good balance of silicon in the body is important for maintaining strong bones and connective tissues.*

N-acetyl l-cysteine helps support the production of endogenous antioxidants and detoxification compounds like glutathione, which are additionally activated by the Incelligence Complex in Vita-Antioxidant.

For easy swallowing, Core Minerals has a soy-free, sunflower-based coating.

Core Minerals was formulated by USANA’s team of nutritional-science experts. They used readily bioavailable forms of each nutrient so you get a product with excellent completeness, potency, quality, and safety. Core Minerals is a premium blend of minerals designed to optimally nourish your cells and support the activity of the InCelligence Complex in Vita-Antioxidant.*

The Benefits of Vita-Antioxidant

Vita-Antioxidant helps fill nutritional gaps to provide whole-body nutritional support by combining optimal amounts of dozens of vitamins, phytonutrients, and enzyme cofactors into one product. The formula contains micronutrients that support multiple metabolic functions throughout the body.* Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.

With the addition of the InCelligence Complex, Vita-Antioxidant goes beyond delivering optimal nourishment. It initiates your cells’ natural protective and renewal processes. This enhances the formula’s effectiveness for supporting vibrant health.*

The Science of Vita-Antioxidant

Nourishment for Whole-Body Support

Vita-Antioxidant™ is a comprehensive blend with broad-spectrum support that more closely reflects the vitamins people should get from a healthy diet. A full spectrum of nourishing micronutrients also provides a foundation for the InCelligence Complex.

These foundational vitamins—A, B, C, D, and E—are also essential to whole-body well-being. Benefits include: maintaining healthy blood flow, keeping arteries and blood vessels healthy, and supporting immune and cellular function.*

High-potency vitamin A comes from a blend of retinyl acetate (for those who don’t convert beta-carotene to vitamin A efficiently), mixed carotenoids, and beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body only as needed. Beta-carotene supports cellular integrity, a strong heart, healthy immune function, and lung health. Beta-carotene, mixed carotenoids, lutein, and zeaxanthin also help preserve skin and eye health by providing oxidative defense against damaging UV rays.*

Vita-Antioxidant is an excellent source of vitamins B6 and B12, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, biotin, pantothenic acid, and folate. The B vitamins, which also include inositol, are essential to many aspects of our health, including:

  • Metabolizing fats, proteins, and carbohydrates, which plays a role in maintaining energy levels.*
  • Supporting normal formation of red blood cells, tissue, and DNA.*
  • Supporting healthy immune cell production.*
  • Healthy brain and nerve function; folate is especially important for women of child bearing age to help support healthy fetal neurocognitive development.*
  • Normal growth of healthy skin, hair, and nails.*
  • As part of a well-balanced diet that is low in saturated fat and cholesterol, folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 may reduce the risk of vascular disease. The FDA evaluated the above claim and found that while it is known that diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol reduce the risk of heart disease and other vascular diseases, the evidence in support of the above claim is inconclusive.
  • Maintaining healthy homocysteine levels, provided they are healthy to begin with, which is associated with heart health.*

Choline is usually grouped with the B vitamins even though it is not technically a vitamin. Regardless of classification, this essential nutrient supports cell structure and the transmission of nerve impulses from the brain throughout the central nervous system. It also supports liver function and helps maintain healthy homocysteine levels.*

Vita-Antioxidant™ is rich in vitamin C. USANA uses a unique Poly C® vitamin C blend, which provides higher levels of vitamin C in plasma than ascorbic acid alone.

Vitamin C is essential for synthesizing collagen—proteins that provide elasticity to our connective tissues. That why vitamin C is helpful in maintaining healthy veins and arteries, muscles, cartilage, tendons, bones, teeth, and skin. It also supports the metabolizing of fats and proteins, and the healthy production of immune cells.*

The high-potency vitamin D in Vita Antioxidant supports the whole body. Vitamin D supports calcium absorption, helping to support healthy bone density. It also supports healthy cell growth as well as muscle, cardiovascular, and immune function.*

Vita-Antioxidant is a good source of vitamin E, and also contains 20 mg of mixed tocopherols in each tablet. The mixed tocopherols, though not technically vitamin E, offer similar functions. Antioxidants, like vitamin E, help defend your cells against the oxidative stress caused by sunlight, pollution, and stress, which can all prematurely age the skin.*

Lycopene, lutein, and beta carotene play a role in supporting the skin.* Inositol, biotin, and pantothenic acid are fundamental to the growth of healthy skin, hair, and nails.*

InCelligence Complex

The InCelligence Complex is a unique blend of ingredients that support optimal cellular resilience and health during the normal lifespan of the cell. These nutrients can help activate a network of cell-signaling pathways to support your body’s ability to meet your individual health needs.*

The messages transmitted by nutrients in the InCelligence Complex act like strength training for your cells. The proactive activation of these networks helps build cellular resilience. This makes cells more able to adapt to whatever life throws at them.*

The InCelligence Complex supports a broad range of pathways and processes for whole-body health. But many of these processes focus on protection and renewal. Two of the most important are the production of endogenous antioxidants—those created in cells—and the activation of a cellular renewal process called mitophagy.*

You can get 10% off if you register as an USANA preferred customer and another 10% off if you place a recurring order.

Endogenous Antioxidant Protection

Our bodies have a naturally powerful defense system against damaging oxidative stress: antioxidants produced in our cells, such as glutathione and superoxide dismutase (SOD).

The InCelligence Complex contains nutrients that stimulate the production of endogenous antioxidants. The antioxidants created inside cells are hundreds of times more powerful than dietary antioxidants—those produced outside the body.*

Dietary antioxidant molecules neutralize free radicals in a one-to-one or one-to-two ratio—one dietary antioxidant eliminates one or two free-radical molecule(s). Endogenous antioxidants are typically enzymes able to neutralize 100 or more free-radical molecules during their lifespans.

Mitochondrial Renewal Through Mitophagy

Cellular energy production (ATP) may also generate free radicals. Natural antioxidants in the cell will neutralize many of the free radicals, but some mitochondria will still be damaged over time. Damaged mitochondria can work inefficiently, producing less ATP and more damaging free radicals.

The cell maintains efficiency through a natural response called mitophagy. Initiating this process degrades, removes, or recycles damaged mitochondria. However, age or other lifestyle factors may slow this process. The InCelligence Complex helps activate mitophagy to maintain healthy cellular renewal.

The USANA Difference
