Their ability to deliver such high concentrations of EPA and DHA in customized form will completely satisfy the specific demands of our diverse customer base.
New York (Vocus) June 7, 2010
AK Biotech, a leading world supplier of the Omega-3 wonder supplement, is now providing customers in the U.S. with highly concentrated levels of EPA and DHA available in customized ratios of powder, oil and triglyceride. The innovative product line delivers superior Omega-3 benefits and is receiving rave reviews since debuting to more than 3,000 global food and beverage, cosmetic and personal care, and dietary supplement executives from nearly 30 countries at the Supply Side Trade Show in April 2010.
“AK Biotech truly cares about the quality of their product and understands the heightened demand for Omega-3 in its purest form,” says Omega 3 buyer. “Their ability to deliver such high concentrations of EPA and DHA in customized form will completely satisfy the specific demands of our diverse customer base.”
Omega-3s are increasingly praised for a myriad health benefits. They are credited with helping treat or prevent degenerative illnesses such as heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and even Alzheimer's. They also play a key role in brain development and cognitive function and have an effect on skin disorders, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, depression, bipolar disorder and osteoporosis.
“The more we learn about omega-3, the more amazing it seems,” says Marcelle Pick, OB/GYN NP, Co-Founder of Women to Women Clinic. “Because of their anti-inflammatory properties, omega-3’s have been linked with prevention and treatment of a whole host of health problems…It’s no surprise that omega-3 fatty acids are quickly becoming one of the most researched topics in the scientific community — and one of the most celebrated among people who care about whole health.”
According to David Valentine, associate professor of earth science at UCSB, Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that the body cannot make by itself. They are obtained largely from fish and other marine life, such as algae and krill. The two omega-3s that provide the clearest health benefits are the “fish oils" eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These are the omega-3s that AK Biotech has focused on in their new product, which combines high concentrations of EPA (not less that 70%) and DHA (not less than 80%) to deliver the purest form of Omega-3 to the market.
AK Biotech’s value lies in the pursuit of a thorough and complete quality management system, of which R&D is an integral part. With the construction of a corporate research institute and a state-of-the-art factory with a GMP and HACCP system in Ulsan, the company is positioned to meet any requirement from customers and partners worldwide.
“We are confident in our ability to be a reliable partner to Omega-3 buyers worldwide,” said company spokesperson Mr. Lee. “Our factory is set up to deliver product of the highest quality, free of contaminants such as PCBs, Dioxin, and heavy metals and without unessential saturated fatty acid. We recognize the value of quality over quantity and not only deliver the highest concentration of Omega-3 but concentrate heavily on R&D. We strive to increase corporate profits through improvements of processes.”
Advance quality control procedures ensure excellence and reliability through continued research, repair and upkeep, including the validation of all equipment and methods used in the laboratory to ensure that they give expected results. Technicians continually work to improve TG synthesis and develop technologies such as oil powderization and low-cost, efficient deodorization. The company maintains all industry certifications (GMP FDA, ISO14001 & 9001, HAACP, HALAL) and has proven capabilities for delivering Omega-3 in every formulation (EPA, DHA, Bulk Oil, Bulk Capsule).
AK Biotech guarantees social responsibility by adhering to clean environmental practices and offering competitive prices without sacrificing quality or customer support. The company only uses ingredients from ecologically clean environments, such as Peru and Thailand, to guarantee the purest form of Omega-3 in their product. Fish oil and other raw materials are only purchased from pre-approved vendors from environmentally clean zones. Technicians investigate raw material suppliers by rigorous standard and certificates of analysis are issued for all products, once quality and compliance are confirmed.
Although AK Biotech is 100% dedicated to providing the purest, highest concentration of Omega-3, it is keenly aware of the multitude of uses for Omega-3 and the need for buyers to meet the demands of various people. According to Nurhan Dunford, FAPC Oil/Oilseed Chemist with the Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, large brands such as Nestle and Kellog Company are marketing Omega-3 enriched formulas of mayonnaise, nutrition bars, cream cheese, yogurt, bread, eggs and many other commercial products. Deb Borgan of Sea-Based Health LLC estimates that retail sales of foods and beverages enriched with Omega 3’s will reach more than $7 billion by 2011.
“As consumers continue to demand more nutritious products, food manufacturers are seeking many more opportunities to include omega-3 in their formulations,” said Dunford. “A main reason for omega-3 supplementation in adults is due to an imbalance…It is believed human beings evolved on a diet with a ratio of omega-6/omega-3 fatty acids of about 1. Today the same ratio is in the range of 15/1 to 17/1 in the Western diet.”
The FDA recommends 3g of EPA and DHA per day. AK Biotech is committed to providing customized solutions that allow buyers to deliver the recommended dosage in the formula that best fits their customers’ lifestyle.
“Omega-3’s contribute to every inch of our bodies,” said Pick. “From our hearts to our minds and every cell in-between, I promise omega-3’s are the healthiest fats you can consume! And no matter how busy you are, there are easy ways to include them in your diet.”
