Setting a Higher Standard for Fish Oil Freshness


How do you know if your omega-3 product is fresh? This has become an important question, as scientists from around the world are the raising the alarm on rancid omega-3 oil. Studies from Norway, New Zealand and South Africa have found that over 80% of omega-3 products on the market do not meet international freshness standards. In addition, a recent Canadian study found that omega-3 products marketed towards children had the highest rancidity values of all. Rancid oil is not only unpleasant to consume, but could also potentially cause adverse health effects.  

Omega3 Innovations is working to make freshness more understandable and transparent. In factthis month, the physician-directed company will start printing oxidation values—numbers that indicate the freshness level of the oil—on every bottle and box of Omega Cure® cod liver oil. They will also print the date on which those numbers were measured.  

Omega3 Innovations delivers Omega Cure directly to consumers after manufacturing. By avoiding the long shelf requirements that many stores and pharmacies have, this company ensures the oxidation numbers printed on each bottle closely reflects the freshness level of the oil that our customers receive.

“Keys to Spiritual Worlds” Interactive Workshop Is Coming to Sarasota


On May 21, 1–3 p.m., spiritual seekers and dreamers alike are invited to attend the “Keys to Spiritual Worlds” interactive workshop where they will discover keys to unlock the “inner” dimensions of dreams, past lives, Soul Travel and spiritual experiences that seem to defy explanation. The takeaway message is these secret heavens are real and can be explored right now for greater wisdom, love and spiritual freedom.
Exploring inner worlds can bring answers to profound questions and challenges such as “Why do things happen the way they do?” “What about Karma?” “How can I know if I’ve lived before?” “I had an experience—was it real?” “What happens after death, and what is Soul Travel?” “How can I work with a spiritual guide?” “Do my dreams really have meaning?”
This workshop will feature spiritual exercises, creative techniques, contemplation and open discussions of personal spiritual experiences in a supportive, nonjudgmental format. A complementary book with CD will also be available for all attendees. Attendance is free of charge. “Keys to Spiritual Worlds” is presented by Florida Satsang Society, Inc., a chartered affiliate of Eckankar, as a community service to meet the spiritual interests of people from all beliefs and backgrounds. This event will be held in the Jack J. Geldbart auditorium in the Selby Public Library.
