  • It is rare to know the names of the suppliers of the raw materials of the food supplements that we consume. However, it is essential in order to ensure the traceability of the product that we buy.

    at Nutrimuscle, we only use omega 3 whose quality has been guaranteed for more than 150 years per The Norwegian world leader: EPAX ©, HACCP certified and ISO14001, produces fish oil from Omega 3 Nutrimuscle. The gross fish oil used for the manufacture of EPAX products is mainly composed of anchovies (Engraulidae) but the following species can also be included, sardines (clupeidae) and mackerel (scrombridae).

    Their Omega 3 have been tested in more than a hundred scientific studies. Their quality is therefore well established, and this for a long time.

    What is the Totox index?

    The Totox index is an indicator that allows you to know the level of freshness of an oil. More specifically, it indicates the level of oxidation of omega 3 present in the oil (1).
    The higher it is, the more the oxidation of the oil is important. Oxidized oil loses its benefits and becomes, ultimately, toxic and unfit for consumption.
    For example, an oil that is heated too long in a pan sees its index Totox climbing.
    Nutrimuscle undertakes, on each lot, to have a totox less than 2!

  • Omega-3 fatty acids are provided through food or food supplements because the body cannot synthesize them. These are lipids mainly from fish fats.

Who is the product for?

  • The omega 3 Epax Nutrimuscle are addressed:

    to sportsmen and sedentary

Research & received ideas on product

  • How to avoid traps?
    The price of Omega 3 supplements varies from 1 to 10 for the same dosage. Admittedly, part of these variations is explained by a sometimes abusive margin, but there are other reasons for these cost differences.

    Michael Gundill, the author of the book Best Seller of the Guide to Food Supplements For athletes explains in detail the main traps to avoid to make the right choice!

    What extraction methods?
    To go from fish itself to fish oil, it must extract the fatty acids that contain omega 3 by eliminating proteins and water. There are several means of elimination:

    we cook at high temperature and then press the fish. This inexpensive process is excellent for the manufacture of fish flours, but damages part of the omega 3. In this case, the oil is degraded, but will have a very low cost price;
    cold extraction, like that of olive oil. Unfortunately, for fish oil, this method is much less effective than for olive;
    low -temperature extraction (less than 100 °). The advantage is twofold: it does not heat omega 3 enough to induce their degradation (which occurs around 200 °), but still allows to eliminate microbes.
    Nutrimuscle choice: omega 3 Nutrimuscle are extracted at low temperature despite a higher cost.

    ethyl ethyl or triglycerides?
    There are two classes of omega 3 supplements: those aggregated with an ethyl ester and those combined in the form of Triglycerides.

    In nature, omega 3 are triglycerides, that is to say that three omega 3 molecules are coupled with a glycerol molecule. But, in order to concentrate polyunsaturated fatty acids, producers eliminate glycerol molecules. They replace them with ethyl esters in order to oust other forms of lipid. After this phase of concentration, it is possible to either leave omega 3, there is then no additional cost, or remove ethyl esters and put the glycerol to obtain omega 3 in the form of triglycerides. This additional phase of course has a cost.
    The big advantage of omega 3 ethyl esters is to cost halfway to produce than omega 3 triglycerides, since the registration phase is avoided. On the other hand, omega 3 ethyl esters have three major drawbacks:

    The total safety of this semi-synthetic form of Omega 3 remains unclear. This explains that it is prohibited in some countries;
    their effectiveness is less due to poor absorption. Short-term studies show that the assimilation of omega 3 ethyl esters is 50 % lower than that of omega 3 triglycerides (1-2). The medium -term studies show that compared to omega 3 of the fish, the absorption of supplements based on esters is 27 % lower and that of Triglycerides is 24 % higher (3). The 50 % superiority of triglycerides therefore last over time. In the long term, studies show that cell incorporation in humans saturate faster and at a lower level with ethyl esters than with triglycerides (4);
    The preservation of integrity Omega 3 is less than with triglycerides. Ethyl esters make polyunsaturated fatty acids very vulnerable to oxidation (destruction by oxygen).
    Let us conclude with a simple question that sums up the situation: why the vast majority of Omega 3 sellers in form Do ethyl esters seek to hide it by not indictment in the composition the semi-synthetic form of their product?

    Nutrimuscle choice: the omega 3 nutrimuscle are in natural form, it is -Ades linked to triglycerides and not in the form of ethyl esters, even if it increases the price of the supplement.

    omega 3 in the form of triglycerides more effective than ethyl esters ?
    A new study compares long -term efficiency between omega 3 ethyl esters and omega 3 in the form of triglycerides. Once again, it is scientifically proven that omega 3 ethyl esters are less effective than triglycerides.

    but this study goes beyond this simple comparison since it analyzes the different responses to the Omega 3 supplementation of a large sample of subjects. In 10 weeks, with an intake of approximately 2 g per day, the concentration of omega 3 in red blood cells went from 4.9 % to 8.1 %. These data also show that a supplementation which remains at the same dosage increases the rate of omega 3 for 13 to 14 weeks. Then there is no more increase. Supplementation only maintains high rates.

    We may wonder what factors are optimizing the effectiveness of omega 3. The first differentiation factor was the best results in the group using omega 3 In the form of triglycerides compared to those who took the ethyl esters of omega 3. But there is also and especially the key role of the dosage.

    The big problem of fish fats is that 'They are the receptacle of all the pollutants that humans have poured into the sea for decades (heavy metals, chemicals, persistent organic pollutant agents ...). These substances should therefore be eliminated through decontamination processes. In general, decontamination is carried out during refining. Almost all producers do it well, that some brands regularly get pinned to have a higher contamination rate than the standard. On the other hand, what many do not do is to perform a second series of decontamination in order to strengthen the first, in order to bring the pollutant threshold to an almost zero level. For what ? Simply for a question of cost of the filtration process.

    Nutrimuscle choice: the omega 3 nutrimuscle benefit from this double decontamination, which makes it possible to reach the lowest impurities on the market and to publish the test results regularly. We are able to provide real purity measures. Thanks to the purest oils possible, you can make regular use without danger.

    What concentration?
    in its natural state, the most fatty fish contain at most 30 % omega 3. It is therefore necessary to concentrate fatty acids by eliminating lipids having no interest in health. It is possible to reach a concentration of 90 %, but the cost rises exponentially when one exceeds 50 %.

    choice Nutrimuscle: Each omega 3 Nutrimuscle capsule contains approximately 57 % + DHA in order to provide a well -balanced supplement, but at an affordable remaining price.

    What exact content?
    There is a way to artificially inflate the announced percentages. Indeed, omega 3 are combined with an ester or glycerol. These molecules are not omega 3, but often, they are counted as such, which distorts dosages and creates confusion for the consumer.

    Nutrimuscle choice:
    The concentrations of omega 3 Nutrimuscle are provided clear, that is to say without including glycerol as an omega 3. This choice lowers the concentrations of omega 3 nutrimuscle vis-à-vis the competition, but exactly reflects the capacity in EPA and DHA of the product.
    If this detail is not mentioned, it is because glycerol or esters are counted as omega 3 (what they are not) in order to artificially improve their content, but can Bringing confusion for the consumer.
    Each Omega 3 Nutrimuscle capsule contains at least 380 mg of EPA + 190 mg of Dha.
    What traceability?
    on the traceability, before Buy, you must have a clear answer as to the following questions: where was the fish caught? What fish is it? Are these wild or breeding fish? Where has the extraction been made? Where has the encapsulation been carried out? Most of the time, the answer to these questions remains very vague.

    The fish was caught off the coast of Peru, because the sea is less Polluted that in Europe.
    These are wild fish (anchovies and tuna) and not breeding fish.
    The extraction is done directly on the fishing boat to reduce costs and guarantee the Freshness.
    The encapsulation was done in Germany (and not in China, as is more and more commonly practiced).
    What a deadline for consumption?
    For sellers, a classic way of 'Lowering their costs is to obtain an outdated raw material. This strategy is unfortunately common. This explains that you get a product soon expired when you just have just bought it. So demand from the seller that he clearly reveals the deadline for consumption before buying.

    Nutrimuscle choice: whether for omega 3, proteins ... Nutrimuscle procures the most costs possible. This means that we refuse to play the discount card with lots close to the expiration date.

    EPA/DHA balance
    Some omega 3 supplements mainly contain EPA while D Others are mainly composed of DHA. You have to realize that the EPA and the DHA each have its own profits, which makes them unique. This search for balance explains why several varieties of fish are used, not only one. Indeed, fish like anchovies are very rich in EPA while tuna is essentially provided with DHA. The types of fish used will therefore determine the EPA/DHA ratio.

    Nutrimuscle choice: Omega 3 Nutrimuscle respect the EPA/DHA balance in order to fight against intake inequalities.

    Deodorization: for or against
    Fish fat strongly smells of fish. It is possible to eliminate this taste thanks to a deodorization process. This is an additional step that increases the cost of omega 3, but adds comfort to the user. A priori, deodorization appears to be judicious. Unfortunately, this is a false good idea, because it takes place by heating the fish oil at 210 °. However, after 200 °, the heat damages fatty acids. With the smell therefore evaporates part of the profits from Omega 3. The advantage of high -end omega 3 is that, due to the quality of refining, the product is very pure. Naturally, its taste is minimal, even non-existent.

    moreover, which largely gives the tide recalling the tide, it is the degradation of omega 3. If your omega 3 have been deodorized And that they still have a bad taste, this means that a large part of fatty acids has been deteriorated by oxidation.

    Nutrimuscle choice: the omega 3 nutrimuscle have not been deodorized. The quality of the product explains that they have almost no smell or any afterement.

    What protection against oxygen?
    Besides heat, oxygen is the greatest enemy of omega 3. In contact with it, polyunsaturated fatty acids oxidize (degrade) quickly. They must therefore be protected in two different ways: by practicing vacuum extraction and adding antioxidants such as vitamin E. If this vitamin is not mentioned in the composition, it is that omega 3 are not protected And risk oxidizing.

    Nutrimuscle choice: Omega 3 Nutrimuscle were produced using this double protection.

    Throughout the manufacture, constant tests testify to waterproofing of the system. The mention of antioxidant in the form of natural tocopherols (vitamin E in the list of ingredients of omega 3 Nutrimuscle) also reflects this search for perfect protection against oxidation.

    Totox quality indicator
    Beyond the quantitative aspect (dosage), how to differentiate the quality of the various omega 3?

    for this there is a quality index imposed on the manufacturers of omega 3 by the GOED (Global Organization for EPA and DHA omega-3S), which bring together the main manufacturers of fish oil (5). The main quality index of omega 3 is called Totox (total oxidation). It measures the total oxidation of omega 3, that is to say their degradation. The higher the Totox index, the more poor quality your omega 3. The maximum Totox level is set at 26.

    A high totox also means that the real dose of omega 3 is far from the theoretical dosage mentioned on the label, because a large part of the omega 3 will have been oxidized ( destroyed), which gives birth to toxic substances. These toxic oxidized molecules therefore replace the healthy omega 3.

    the Totox 3 Nutrimuscle Totox index is 2 for the Lot currently on sale, therefore much lower than the maximum limit of 26 .

    All omega 3 sellers are normally required to notify consumers. Unfortunately, this is not generally the case

    It is obvious that when the Totox index is not clearly mentioned, it is that the results in terms of quality are bad, even very bad. The independent studies carried out in various countries reveal that from 11 to 62 % of omega 3 of the supplements are oxidized (which gives a very bad totox).

    why not omega 3 plants?
    There are there Omega 3 plants. Indeed, certain plants and linen are rich in alpha linolenic acid (Aal, an omega 3). Unfortunately, our organization is struggling to convert the AAL to EPA and DHA. Average conversion of AALs into EPA reaches 10 to 20 % and DHA reaches 0.5 to 9 %. This explains that the level of blood EPA is 15 to 23 % lower in vegetarians. The problem is even more acute in men, in whom the conversion level is 2.5 times less than that of women. The omega 3 sailors contain directly from the EPA and the DHA which short-circuits the bottleneck represented by the conversion of AAL to EPA and in DHA.

    Nutrimuscle choice: efficiency pass before before before All. No omega 3 plants!

    Why supplements and not fish?
    The fat naturally constitutes a privileged tank of pollutants.
    The breeding fish are less and less rich in Omega 3.
    During cooking, we risk destroying part of the omega 3.
    You should eat a lot and every day to cover minimum needs.
    The absorption of fish fat is 24 % less good than those of omega 3 supplements in the form of triglycerides (3).
    An omega 3 supplement is therefore easier to use without having the disadvantages of the fish (overload in pollutants).
