New Fish Oil, Vitamin D and Magnesium now in stock at CFSBK
- Happy Birthday, Dan L!
Pure Pharma and CFSBK
We recently switched from carrying Prosource Fish Oil to Pure Pharma. While this brand is more expensive per bottle, Pure Pharma (PP) proved to be a higher quality product as well as more environmentally conscience than Prosource (PS). Here are some of the reasons we like it:
- PP has an Omega 3 concentration of 84% per capsule compared to PS' 60%
- PP has a natural triglyceride form while PS uses an Ethyl Ester which is less stable and can create free radicals.
- PP uses deep sea anchovies and sardines only from 5 star Friend of the Sea certified fisheries where as PS is derived from Jack Mackerels, a fish higher on the food chain (less desirable) and does not publish where their fish are caught.
The benefits of Fish Oil are that it's been proven to reduce inflammation, support cardiovascular and cognitive health as well as improving oxygen delivery and a myriad of other positive health benefits.
On top of carrying fish oil, we also now carry Vitamin D and Magnesium. To read more about the benefits of these products and how they're sourced, click on the links for each one above to get a comprehensive outline of the product.
While we don't think everyone needs to take supplements, they can sometimes fill in gaps missing in your nutrition that help support your performance and health. We like Pure Pharma because of their commitment to quality and the environment as well as having one of the smallest product portfolios in the entire supplement industry. Ultimately, it's up to you to do some research, experiment with your body and see what's right for you.
Each product is available for purchase at the front desk for the following prices:
Fish Oil: $35
Vitamin D: $15
Or, purchase all three for $70
