SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) December 28, 2022
With mounting awards, burgeoning science, and exponential growth, fatty15 is poised to be a formidable challenger to the omega-3 supplement industry in 2023.
Fatty15 is a first-to-market C15:0 supplement with extensive peer-reviewed studies demonstrating its ability to support cellular health, further backed by numerous large epidemiological studies linking higher circulating C15:0 levels to better metabolic, heart, immune and liver health. Scientists discovered that C15:0 (pentadecanoic acid) is the first essential fatty acid to be found since omega-3, which was over 90 years ago, and published their findings in Nature’s Scientific Reports during May 2020. To date, over 50 peer-reviewed scientific publications have supported C15:0 as an essential and beneficial nutrient.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are defined as nutrients that we need to maintain baseline health, but our bodies don’t naturally produce. This means that we must routinely get EFAs from either supplements or food sources. Today, there are only three known EFAs: alpha-linolenic acid ( omega-3), linoleic acid (omega-6), and now C15:0 (an odd-chain saturated fatty acid).
In May 2022, a peer-reviewed study showed that the > 99.5% pure C15:0 ingredient in fatty15 had 3x more cellular benefits and was safer for cells than the purest omega-3 (EPA) In August 2022, the fatty15 team then published a second groundbreaking discovery in Nature’s Scientific Reports, showing that our bodies use C15:0 to make the second-ever-to-be-discovered molecule that fully activates cannabinoid receptors to support better sleep and reduce anxiety.
“Our rigorous science around fatty15, paired with encouraging feedback from thousands of fatty15 users, have made this decade-long effort a worthwhile endeavor,” said Dr. Steph Venn-Watson, fatty15’s co-founder and CEO. “How often do we get a chance to meaningfully improve both individuals’ and global health?”
To date, 98% of customers reported that fatty15 is part of their daily health regime, and approximately 3-out-of-4 report feeling benefits, such as better sleep or lower anxiety.
Beyond the science, the fatty15 team’s breakthrough discoveries have gained global attention , including being honored as Fast Company’s 2022 World Changing Idea and as a featured TEDx talk.
As the science supporting fatty15 is on the rise, supporters of omega-3 fish oil supplements is dwindling. The National Institute of Health has concluded that omega-3 marine oil supplements do not protect against heart disease or most other chronic conditions, often due to the variability in ingredients and quality of omega-3 supplements, many of which are rancid due to oil oxidation.
“We developed fatty15 to provide a pure, bioavailable, and science-backed C15:0 powder ingredient that is stable, vegan-friendly, and sustainable,” said Venn-Watson. “In doing so, we not only provide the absolute highest quality essential fatty acid supplement for consumers, but we hope to raise the bar for the omega-3 industry, too.”
Fatty15 is a health and wellness brand dedicated to advancing global health through the discovery of essential fatty acids and micronutrient therapeutics. Through rigorous breakthrough science, the company develops fatty acid supplements, food fortifiers, and nutritional interventions to strengthen cells, keep mitochondria working and advance cellular homeostasis to counter age-related breakdown. With its team of industry-leading scientists, fatty15 challenges long-held approaches to nutrition, enabling the creation of novel health products designed to support quality of life.
