We know that Wild Alaskan Salmon is one of the healthiest fish we can eat for our health and that it provides one of the best sources of Essential Fatty Acids EFA). So what would be the best source for a pure and naturally processed fish oil supplement? Wholemega's Wild Alaskan salmon fish oil, of course!

Wholemega by New Chapter is sourced from 100% sustainably caught Alaskan wild salmon. Wholemega provides a new, extra-virgin, whole-food approach to fish oil because it is not overly processed like the other numerous fractionated, highly processed and “purified” fish oils on the market today. Instead, WholeMega fish oil is immediately cold pressed from Alaska’s wild salmon, just like extra virgin olive oil, so you get the purity and benefits nature created without chemical processing. Every batch of Wholemega is rigorously tested to ensure each capsule delivers Nature’s bioavailable, effective, and whole profile of nature’s optimal balance of 16 Omegas fatty acids and other important nutrients such as vitamin D, and powerful antioxidants like Astaxanthin.

Alaska maintains one of the worlds most highly protected and managed natural fisheries and has outlawed salmon fish farming, so the pristine, protected waters of Alaska provide one the world’s cleanest and most pure fish stocks. Since Wholemega contains only wild, sustainably caught Alaskan salmon, chemical processing to deliver a pure wild salmon oil product is simply not necessary. The Wholemega Wild Alaskan salmon fish oil is so pure and untainted, it is delivered from a “food grade,” government inspected facility. Since Wholemega is a “food grade oil,” it is extensively tested for detectable contaminants that other fish oil products must “purify” or distill out.

Other “purified” fish oils manufacturers take a different, more processed approach. Because they often source a variety of different fish species with varying levels of beneficial Omegas and ship these fish long distances before processing, they need to be “purified” in order to deliver an acceptable product. Unfortunately this purification process involves the use of complex, high heat processes that can break down the valuable compounds in their fish oil and they are no longer “Food Grade”. The oils become fractionated; isolated and important nutrients are lost including whole, natural omegas, naturally occurring antioxidants and vitamins found in natural fish sources. While some manufacturers will then attempt to add back specific nutrients into their product, the benefits of the whole have been lost.

The visual difference in fish oils is clearly detectable. The dull, yellow color and watery texture of conventional fish oil capsules is symbolic of “purified” products. The heavy distillation fractionates, isolates, and destroys the many valuable compounds that give fish oil its vibrant color and natural viscosity.

Wholemega, however, delivers a fish oil that is extraordinary in color (similar to what you’d see in the whole salmon fillets found in any natural fish market) and transparency. The brilliant hue in Wholemega comes from the Astaxanthin which is a powerful antioxidant found naturally and abundantly in wild salmon and is retained in this extra virgin fish oil. The gentle process used to extract the wild salmon oil for Wholemega preserves this antioxidant and numerous other beneficial compounds and also preserves the rich natural color and viscosity of the whole salmon oil. Again, the chemical processing in “purified” fish oils can destroy these vital nutrients.

Natural salmon oil contains a healthy balance of vital Omega 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9’s, often referred to as “good fats.” These good fats, which include two essential fatty acids the human body cannot produce on its own (EPA & DHA), serve to nourish brain, heart, eye, and kidney tissues. They have been shown to benefit cardiovascular, immune system, brain, and digestive health. For optimal health, one should achieve a healthy balance between the inflammatory Omega 6 fatty acids and anti-inflammatory Omega 3 fatty acids. Ideally, that balance should be an equal with a 1 to 1 ratio. But for most Americans, our highly processed and “factory farmed” diets have skyrocketed that ratio to an unhealthy 20 to 1, which has caused an alarming increase in the occurrence of diet-induced diseases including cardiovascular and inflammatory conditions.

Wholemega has been clinically shown to enter cell membranes, which allows it to provide its full beneficial effects and has been the subject of a human clinical study demonstrating how it affects EPA and DHA essential fatty acids in cell membranes. Wholemega has been shown to down-regulate inflammatory Arachidonic Acid (AA), notably improving the balance of inflammatory AA to anti-inflammatory EPA. Preliminary data also shows Wholemega may down regulate inflammatory markers such as LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and C-reactive protein.

New Chapter believes that Nature got it right the first time: the world’s best fish oil doesn’t come from scientists or a laboratory -- it comes from the world’s best fish! Wholemega provides nourishment, protection and health that comes from whole fish oil – not from the fractionated, isolated, “purified” fish oils on the market today. New Chapter guarantees that Wholemega provides an optimal purity “Food Grade” wild salmon oil supplement. It’s New Chapter’s promise of healthy, and pure, food for you.
