PRN Physician Recommended Nutriceuticals® was founded on the idea that a superior nutriceutical product line, endorsed by leading physicians and delivered to patients in a convenient way could significantly support eye health. The impressive body of support in the use of omega-3s is inspiring, but unfortunately, not all omega-3 products are the same. At PRN, we are committed to providing you with the purest and safest nutriceuticals helping you to lead a happier and healthier life.
What Makes PRN Different?
PRN omega-3 products contain a concentrated amount of both EPA and DHA. At PRN, our omega-3 products are in a cleaned triglyceride form. Many other brands of Omega-3 products are low quality, unpurified, or are sold in a synthetic, ethyl ester form. This form, which is more difficult to absorb, can leave a fishy odor or after-taste. It could take up to 40 softgels of those to equal the same benefits found in just three softgels of PRN’s products.
Omega-3 products that you typically find on the shelf come in various formulations:
- Unpurified native oil: This oil is pressed directly from the fish so it is in the well-absorbed triglyceride form. Unfortunately, because it is unpurified, it still may have toxins like PCBs and dioxins typically found in larger fish.
- Ethyl ester based omega-3s: Many manufacturers chemically remove the toxins from the native oil, and as a result convert the omega-3s to an ethyl ester form. Though the product is free of toxins, it is now poorly absorbed and may require as many as 40 capsules to equal the benefit of three PRN softgels.
- Re-esterified triglyceride form Omega-3s : PRN continues the process to one more step. By removing the alcohol (ester) the omega-3s are then in cleaned triglyceride form after the toxins have been removed, the final purified product is more easily absorbed by the body and does not have the fishy odor or after-taste observed in the other forms.
Omega-3 Benefits in Supporting Eye Health
PRN provides our customers the most scientifically–based, clean and efficacious nutritional supplements possible. We stay current with the evidence and reformulate our products in response to the ever-evolving body of research. The science behind our products is important to us, and so is teaching the science behind our products. Our medical team of ophthalmologists and optometrists lecture at International, National, State and Local continuing education venues to provide the most current omega-3 research available. As all of our products are based on peer-reviewed clinical evidence, we enthusiastically provide accredited continuing education courses to ensure that our doctors are current on the latest omega-3 science.
