American Heart Association Supports Omega Cookie(R) Benefits

Share Article

Venice-based Ambo Foods, LLC, has succeeded in manufacturing a breakfast or travel cookie that follows American Heart Association guidelines.

The combination of fiber and fish oil seems to make Omega Cookie more potent than taking omega-3 supplements alone.”

The American Heart Association (AHA) just released a breaking news statement about managing high triglyceride levels in the blood. One third of all Americans suffer from elevated triglycerides, making them more vulnerable to cardiovascular diseases, which is the number one cause of death and disability in the United States.

According to the AHA, prevention or treatment should include using two to four grams of a marine-based omega-3. This amount equals the oil found in a full salmon dinner or swallowing seven to 14 capsules of fish oil every day. In addition, AHA recommends increasing intake of fibers, reducing fructose, trans fats and saturated fats. With this approach, patients can expect to lower triglyceride levels by 20 to 50 percent.

Considering that it is nearly impossible to get enough marine based omega-3 by diet alone, Ambo Foods, LLC, a physician-directed company based out of Venice, FL, has succeeded in manufacturing an award-winning, tasty breakfast or travel cookie that contains the AHA-recommended amount of two grams of EPA/ DHA (equivalent to seven capsules of omega-3 from fish), five grams of whole fibers from oats, 800 IU of vitamin D and no added sugar or preservatives.

“The Omega Cookie is the healthiest little meal you can eat. Regular consumption can literally change the health of millions of Americans,” says CEO Bo Martinsen, MD, of Ambo Foods. “Our preliminary clinical test results support the AHA statement and show that most people can now cover their omega-3 needs by just eating one Omega Cookie per day. The combination of fiber and fish oil seems to make Omega Cookie more potent than taking omega-3 supplements alone.”

What is not in the cookie is equally important to the physician founders, Drs. Martinsen, and Chalmers. Ambo Foods eliminated all processed ingredients, such as trans fats, high-fructose corn syrup and preservatives from the baking process. In addition, the cookie is gluten-free, a huge bonus for those who suffer gluten intolerance. Moreover, the Omega Cookie comes in four delicious flavors: chocolate chip, cranberry, ginger raisin and tropical fruits.
