Renew Life Super Critical Bonus Bottle will be on Sale in May and June 2017
Over 7000 studies on omega-3 fatty acids seem to be telling us YES! Essential Fatty Acids are natural substances your body needs to establish and maintain overall well-being. As the body cannot produce these essential fats on its own, it is very important that they are acquired through a healthy daily diet. However, the typical Canadian diet is severely deficient in these. Daily supplementation with a natural fish oil formula is an ideal source for obtaining the health-promoting benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids.
EFA supplementation can help to maintain good health but also treat certain health conditions such as:
Arthritis and Inflammatory Conditions
The powerful anti-inflammatory properties of Omega-3 oils from fish help reduce stiffness in joints and help relieve joint and muscle pain. This makes fish oils an important supplement for anyone trying to maintain joint health and mobility.
Attention Deficit Disorder and Memory
Recent research reveals that Omega-3’s, specifically DHA, help increase focus and memory retention in children and adults. Omega 3 fatty acids also support normal neurological development in infants.
Cholesterol and Blood Pressure
Omega-3 oils promote healthy cholesterol levels in the body by helping to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) levels and raise good cholesterol (HDL) levels. Clinical research also reveals reductions in blood pressure with the intake of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Depression and Mood Regulation
Regular supplementation of omega 3 fatty acids helps to elevate mood and lessen depression and anxiety. High potency fish oil with added Vitamin D is very useful in treating Seasonal Affective Disorder or the “winter blues”.
Digestive System Health
Regular Omega-3 supplementation helps to soothe and lubricate the bowel, ease elimination and supporting overall digestive health.
There are a lot of fish oil supplements on the market, but Super Critical Omega provides the highest-quality blend of EPA and DHA and exceeds world standards for fish oil quality and purity. Super Critical Omega is one of the strongest fish oil supplements on the market with over a 1 gram of Omega 3 per capsule PLUS 1000 units of Vitamin D3. It is the perfect choice for people dealing with chronic health conditions including depression and IBS.
Ultimate Digestibility with Better Absorption
Ultragest™ enteric coating ensures superior absorption and the fat-digesting enzyme lipase enhances the digestion and utilization of the beneficial oils. This combination eliminates the unpleasant aftertaste and repeating of fishy flavour often experienced with fish oil supplements.
100% Fish-derived Gel Caps
Encapsulated in natural fish-derived gel caps, Super Critical Omega is ideal for fish-eating vegetarians or anyone with religious dietary restrictions.
Quality & Purity Guaranteed
Super Critical Omega is sourced from sustainable wild and unthreatened fish that are found in cold, pristine waters and are naturally lower in environmental toxins such as: mercury, PCB’s and pesticides.
Purity Testing & Certification
Super Critical Omega is subject to a minimum of three purification steps to ensure the highest levels of freshness and the absence of any chemicals, toxins and heavy metals. It has received a 5-star rating by the International Fish Oil Standards (IFOS) program. This proves that it meets or exceeds all national and international standards for purity, potency and freshness.
With all of these benefits it is no surprise that fish oils are one of the most commonly researched and consumed natural health products in the world. Have you taken yours today?

Studies have also shown omega-3 fatty acid to be effective for treatment of childhood ADHD. Premium fish-oil supplementation is also a healthy, side effect–free alternative to prescription stimulants (methylphenidate) in the development and maintenance of ongoing mental health from childhood through adolescence.
New Roots Herbal’s Children’sOmega-3 is sourced from deep sea–dwelling sardines and anchovies. They’re tested for purity and potency, as well as for freedom from heavy-metal contamination in our industry-leading analytical laboratory.
Discover how Children’s Omega-3 can help your child realize their full potential.
Omega-3 fatty acids are critical to the optimal development of the nervous system in childhood. These essential fatty acids fuel vigorous brain function, crucial for learning and behavioural development, nervous system integrity, and providing nourishment for healthy eyes. They also establish and maintain the network of veins and capillaries that lay the foundation for a lifetime of cardiovascular and mental wellbeing.
New Roots Herbal’s Children’sOmega-3 chewable softgels deliver the perfect balance of 100 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and 50 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), naturally sweetened with stevia and a subtle burst of natural lemon flavour. Softgels are the ideal form of dosage to preserve the potency and therapeutic benefits of omega-3 fatty acids from oxidation. EPA is arguably the most important single agent for promoting optimal mental focus, memory, concentration, and mood, in both adults and children. Studies have shown that EPA-rich omega-3 supplements can reduce ADHD traits, and even reverse criteria for the diagnosis of ADHD, in a considerable percentage of children. Collective data from a 2011 systematic review and meta-analysis of 10 trials of 660 children showed a significant difference with omega-3 fatty acid treatment, and higher doses of EPA rather than DHA within the omega-3 fatty acids supplements were significantly associated with increased effectiveness in treating ADHD symptoms. Based on the strength of this data, a high-EPA fish oil with a minimum 2:1 ratio of EPA:DHA is needed to impact parameters related to mental focus, memory, and concentration. Studies show that a good dose of EPA for children is between 400 and 600 mg per day. A large concentration of omega-3 fatty acids is essential for nerve cell synapses (communication); a deficiency of these critical fatty acids can be a root cause for a host of cognitive disorders. Premium fish oil supplementation also represents a healthy alternative to prescription stimulants (methylphenidate) for the development and maintenance of ongoing mental health. Our Children’s Omega-3 chewable softgels are a healthy way to lay the foundation of sound cognitive function during the formative years of childhood and adolescence.

Do not make the mistake of writing off varicose veins as an appearance flaw, because their unsightliness is just one aspect of this condition; it can be an extremely bothersome and painful ailment.
If these veins bulge significantly, even a minor injury could result in excessive bleeding.
What really is the cause of varicose veins?
It is the loss of elasticity and strength of the veins in the legs. Veins normally pump the blood up towards the heart. If they are unable to do so, blood pools in the lower legs, distending the veins and making them uncomfortable. Legs may itch and feel heavy, and might even throb or feel painful.
Causes and risk factors
- Keeping the same position for too long.
Sales clerks are often warned about the risk of developing varicose veins in the legs as a result of spending long hours on their feet. Yet again, taxi drivers are more prone to these conditions because they sit in the same position for long periods. It is important to move! Walking, swimming or even just treading water, are great to get the blood moving.
As one gets older the elasticity of the veins is reduced. Also, overweight people carry more fat and the veins do not receive the required support. Here we have yet another reason to keep down the body weight, especially for people with either a sedentary job or a standing job.
The extra weight partially explains why pregnant women are prone to varicose veins. During pregnancy the volume of blood in the body is higher and the enlarged womb increases the pressure on the veins making the circulation more difficult and causing the blood to pool in the veins.
Is there someone in your family that has problems with venous insufficiency? You are at higher risk since there is a strong genetic component to developing varicose veins.
- You are a woman
Pregnancy and hormonal fluctuations can increase the pressure on your veins and/or cause them to relax too much.
Constipation increases pressure on the venous system, which can lead to decreased tissue elasticity and make you more vulnerable to varicose veins.
- Tobacco and alcohol
If you smoke or drink too much alcohol, you are polluting your blood. If your blood becomes like sludge, it is more difficult to move it – especially against gravity.
Do you regularly wear high heels or clothes that are too tight or constrict your waist, groin or legs? These restricts blood flow in your legs.
- Legs crossed
Do you tend to cross your legs when sitting down? Please avoid…it puts terrible pressure on the veins.
- Refined/ processed foods
They starve your veins of essential nutrients and increase the toxic load of your blood by the presence of artificial ingredients (colouring, preservatives, synthetic components).
- Salt consumption
Salt increases water retention, causing heaviness and pain in your legs.
- Oral contraceptive
Taking estrogen, progesterone, and birth control pills, can weaken vein valves and change leg circulation.
Avoid excessive heat and too many hot baths. These dilate the veins and slow circulation.
Check with your health professional and if your veins are weak then consider taking a fresh herb extract of Horse chestnut. Horse Chestnut seed contains several important therapeutic constituents, including aescin, which have a toning effect on the vein wall. It has been used for many, many years in the treatment of circulatory disorders – particularly disorders of the veins.
Generations of people have used this remedy successfully for varicose veins and hemorrhoids. Horse chesnut extract Venaforce tincture or Venaforce Extra tablets are best for long-term maintenance and Venaforce Gel for immediate relief. The gel can be smoothed onto legs, immediately tightening the veins and reducing the likelihood of blood pooling. It can be reapplied if necessary.
