Every month Delicious Living magazine is read by over 1 million health enthusiasts, and every year the magazine celebrates select supplement formulas with their annual supplement awards. The awards are given out based on formula innovation, safety, purity, and efficacy—all hallmarks of ReNew Life’s supplement mission.
We are so pleased to announce that two ReNew Life products were among the 2013 award winners! The contenders are nominated from across the country and chosen from a pool of hundreds by Delicious Living’s researchers and expert editorial team. It’s quite an honor to receive an award. Here are our winners:
Norwegian Gold Super Critical Omega – Omega-3 Excellence
Super Critical Omega stood out in this competitive category thanks to its high omega-3 concentration at 1,125mg omega-3 per softgel. That’s a lotof omega-3 in each softgel, eliminating the need to take a handful of capsules daily to meet your omega-3 needs. Plus, Norwegian Gold Super Critical Omega is the advanced digestion fish oil with added lipase that helps break down oils and enteric coating to prevent fishy burping. Oh, and did we mention it’s also enhanced with 1,000 IU of vitamin D3?
IntestiNEW – Top honors in Best Digestive Health category
This unique digestive care product targets an often missed, and very important, area of digestive health—the intestinal lining. Herbs plus L-glutamine and NAG work together to help soothe support the intestinal lining, which can become irritated with poor diet and medications, and promote healthy digestion and nutrient absorption. ǂ The intestines are an important point of contact between what passes through (food and waste) and what gets absorbed. The integrity of the intestinal lining helps determine immune health and total-body health. IntestiNEW helps support your essential gut defense system. ǂ
We already know that a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids from fish is linked to heart health, better digestion and healthy brain function. Now new evidence shows that eating more fish-derived Omega-3s might help lower the risk of age-related macular degeneration, a condition that affects nearly 2 million older adults every year in the United States and causes a loss of vision due to damage to the retina.
Published in the journal Ophthalmology, findings from a recent study conducted at Johns Hopkins University show that older adults who eat one or more servings of fish weekly tend to have lower rates of AMD. Not only that, but regular fish eaters are 60 percent less likely to have advanced AMD than those who consume fish less than once a week. Scientists believe that the natural properties in fish-derived Omega-3s help to nourish and protect the delicate tissues of the eye.
While more research is planned to further investigate the role of Omega-3s and eye health, experts recommend increasing your intake of oily fish such as salmon, mackerel and albacore tuna to get the health benefits of fish-derived Omega-3s. For those who don’t like fish, a daily fish oil supplement provides a great alternative—just remember to look for a highly concentrated formula with lipase, a powerful fat-digesting enzyme that helps your body break down and use the healthy oils.
