A popular anti-aging consumer website focusing on the nutraceutical industry, recently announced it’s first annual “You Can’t Be Serious” product award for 2011. The award, presented by antiagingsupplementnews.org, goes to the natural health supplement that combines the most improbable or intriguing ingredients in a product with a promising future.
“The first recipient was awarded to Marine D3, a new anti-aging supplement that combines brown seaweed (harvested at depths of 100 feet of the coast of Japan), along with squid,” said website editor Ray Anders, who’s staff waded through over one hundred different products before making its decision. “Our criterion is simple, products considered for this award must have a clear cut theme, and include at least two unusual, yet scientifically viable ingredients validated by research studies. Sure, we’re trying to have a little fun with the award, while shining a serious light on products that may be helpful to people.”
According to Anders, Marine D3 is clearly focused on the ocean for its ingredients. He said while use of brown seaweed (Seanol) and squid (Calamrine) may sound more like sushi bar special, it’s potential positive impact in cardiovascular health, cholesterol, energy and other areas are promising.
“Many people don’t realize that squid, or Calamari as we prefer to call it in the U.S., contains an impressive 85 percent more Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) than other better known sources of omega-3 fatty acid,” Anders said. “It’s certainly well documented that DHA-rich sources are recommended in the prevention of heart attacks and stroke, since these fatty acids lower blood triglycerides and blood pressure. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services also reports that increased omega-3 consumption was associated with “a significant reduction in the incidence of Alzheimer’s Disease in the general population.”
Anders said that the website also wanted to know the back-story of this product, and exactly who formulated it, and why the emphasis on ocean ingredients?
“We see so many supplements today that are brought to market by mega marketing groups and backed by millions in advertising,” Anders said. “This particular product, however, was formulated by a medical doctor who graduated with honors from Cornell University Medical College and went on to found the first nationally accredited, outpatients multi-specialty pain program in New York.”
Ander’s says the rational behind the supplement is the nutrient rich food chain found in the sea. “For example, says Dr. Linchitz, squid ingest and accumulate omega-3 fatty acids through the food chain, mostly from algae and phytoplankton. However, he contends, and correctly so, the human body only produces saturated and omega-9 fatty acids, which means we have to get the omega-3 fatty acids our bodies require form our daily foods.”
Dr. Linchitz believes that by including both Seanol, an antioxidant-rich source of omega-3 and Calamarine into one supplement, people benefit from an omega-3
“super charged” antioxidant formulation stemming from both ends of the food chain.
“His contention is that since sea creatures that live for hundreds and hundreds years, the inclusion of a rare, naturally occurring ocean antioxidant like Seanol – along with Calamarine from squid – they have a supplement that’s 100 times more antioxidant-rich than vitamin c, vitamin e, blueberries, green tea and many other sources,” Anders adds.
The staff of antiagingsupplementnews.org, in announcing its “You Can’t Be Serious Award,” cautions people from running out and buying Marine D3 without first reading about it in detail on its website.
“We believe the product has a lot of merit, but we want our readers to read about it first, and just as importantly, do their own research before ordering the product,” Anders said. “If your doctor is up on supplementation, which is not always the case, bring in your research and discuss the product with him or her before ever placing an order.”
