Nature’s Whole Complement ofSixteen Omegas – 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9’s
  • Bioavailable: Clinically Shown to EnterCell Membranes for Optimal Fish Oil Benefits
  • Effective: Reduces InflammatoryArachidonic Acid*
  • Whole: Natural Source ofOmegas + Vitamin D + Astaxanthin


A Whole New Approach To Fish Oil
New Chapter® is proud to offer a whole-food approach to fish oil andan alternative to the fractionated, highly processed and “purified”oils on the market today. From the pristine, protected waters ofAlaska directly to you, Wholemega is 100% wild-caught salmon oil;rigorously tested to ensure each capsule delivers Nature’s bioavailable,effective, and whole profile of beneficial fatty acids and nutrients.

Omega Oils & Optimal Health
Natural salmon oil contains a balance of vital Omega 3, 5, 6, 7 and9’s, often referred to as “good fats.” These good fats, which includetwo essential fatty acids the human body cannot produce on its own,serve to nourish brain, heart, eye, and kidney tissues.* They havebeen shown to benefit cardiovascular, immune system, brain, anddigestive health.*

The Difference Is Clear
The dull, yellow hue of conventional fish oils is symbolic of “purified”products. In the heavy processing required for aging or tainted fishstocks (to remove toxins, PCBs, heavy metals, etc.), many beneficialcompounds that give fresh fish oil its vibrant color can be destroyedand lost forever.
Wholemega, however, delivers an oil that is striking in color – similarto what you’d see in the whole salmon fillets found in any natural fishmarket. The brilliant hue in Wholemega comes from Astaxanthin – anextremely powerful antioxidant that is naturally found in wild salmonand abundant in this extra virgin fish oil. The gentle process used toextract Wholemega preserves this antioxidant as well as numerousother beneficial compounds – including Vitamin D. In fact, this whole oilis delivered from a government inspected FOOD GRADE facility.New Chapter’s Guiding Principles

  • To advance the organic mission, nourishing body and soul with the healing intelligence of pure whole foods and herbal supplements.

The Benefits of Whole
Wholemega™ is a true expression of nature’s wisdom. By using onlysustainably caught Alaskan salmon – among the world’s cleanest andmost pure fish stocks – an extra virgin, low heat process is all that’srequired to deliver nature’s intelligence and the whole complementof omega fatty acids, while still guaranteeing optimal purity.“Food Grade” Wholemega is extensively tested fordetectable PCBs, heavy metal contaminants, and toxins thatmust be distilled out of other fish oils.

Effectiveness
For optimal benefit, fish oil must be incorporated into cell membranes,where it serves to modulate cell signal events (e.g.

Health Notes

Omega-6 Fatty Acids

Omega-6 Fatty Acids
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Atherosclerosis
Dose: Follow label instructions
Though the effect has not been studied with supplements, an analysis of several controlled trials found that replacing saturated fats in the diet with omega-6 fats reduces the risk of coronary heart disease. (more)
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
(more)
Atherosclerosis
Dose: Follow label instructions A diet high in omega-6 fatty acids, found in certain vegetable oils such as corn, safflower, grapeseed, and sunflower oil, and in other foods such as nuts and seeds, appears to protect against atherosclerosis. Higher dietary intake or high body levels of omega-6 fatty acids has been associated with reduced coronary heart disease risk in numerous preliminary studies,1 and an analysis of several controlled trials found that replacing saturated fats in the diet with omega-6 fats reduces the risk of coronary heart disease by an average of 24%.2

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Dose: Refer to label instructionsArachidonic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid found in animal fats that the body uses to make inflammatory substances. In a controlled study,1 people with rheumatoid arthritis were instructed to reduce their arachidonic acid intake to less than 90 mg per day by eating minimal amounts of meat, no egg yolks, and only low-fat milk products. Compared with a group following a typical Western diet, the low arachidonic acid diet led to a 14% reduction in the number of tender and swollen joints. A second part of this study also found that the anti-inflammatory benefits of fish oil were significantly better when combined with the low arachidonic acid diet.

Omega-6 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids that perform essential functions in the human body. The most abundant member of this family in food and in the body is linoleic acid. Other members include gamma-linolenic acid and arachidonic acid. Linoleic acid is considered an essential fatty acid since it cannot be synthesized by the body. However, other members of the omega-6 family can be made from linoleic acid.

Omega-6 fatty acids have numerous important roles in the body.1 They contribute to the structure and function of cell membranes and play a part in the regulation of gene activity inside the cell. Arachidonic acid is especially abundant in the brain, and may be important for normal brain development of the fetus and infant. Both arachidonic acid and gamma-linolenic acid can be converted to prostaglandins and related substances that affect inflammation, blood clotting, smooth muscle tone, and many other body activities.

        The manager at GNC suggested that i try them due to a another customer testifying to how great they work with her RA. I have RA and after taking them i didn't need to take Alieve everyday. The swelling went down in my hands and knees. What a GREAT product...the closest I've come to taming my inflammation besides using drugs. Thank you to whomever made this product!

            All those Vitamin Ds are not going to work against you, but according to several employees at GNC and my doctor's opinion, these aren't all that necessary (the 3-6-9 are the only ones that are deemed necessary). It's up to you; if you feel like you need all of these Ds, then buy it. Keep in mind they aren't cheap!

              I've been taking Wholemega since it came out and am so happy GNC carries an all natural, pure fish oil like this. All of New Chapter's products rock but this one is really phenomenal. Green's important to me so I like the fact that it's sustainable wild Alaskan salmon; secondly, it's pure...pressed like extra virgin olive oil (read: NO chemicals); thirdly, it's got NATURAL Vitamin D3, astaxanthin, etc; lastly, it affects triglycerides which is really important to me. Thank you, GNC, for carrying such a great product!!
