Premium Omega-3 DHA Supplements Certified Free-From PIFA C16:4 (n-3)
Posted on July 11, 2019Anpas Global’s DHA supplements, first to receive free-from C 16:4 (n-3) certification in the market.
Anpas Global, makers of the high concentration Premium Omega-3 DHA brand of supplements is the first company to have their products certified free-from C 16:4 (n-3) in the nutrition industry.
“Since the launch of our flagship consumer product, Nurture Me® in 2015, all our DHA supplements have been voted top quality health supplements three years in a row. Thus, it came as no surprise when a third-party lab test report confirmed that our products tested free-from the platinum-induced fatty acid 16:4(n-3) (hexadeca-4,7,10,13-tetraenoic acid),” said Sapna Misra, President of Anpas Global.
Positive Customer Impact
New and emerging research shows that certain PIFAs (platinum-induced fatty acids) like C 16:4(n-3) induce systemic resistance to a broad range of DNA-damaging chemotherapeutics. While more studies are needed in this area, Researchers have discovered that cancer cells become less sensitive to chemotherapy in the presence of certain PIFAs.
Although the PIFA C 16:4 (n-3) is not a fish fatty acid, it may occur in some commercially available fish oil supplements. These scientists therefore advise against using fatty fish and / or fish oil supplements during chemotherapy as these PIFAs seem to protect the cancer cells against chemotherapy and render it less effective.
Anpas Global anticipates that with this new certification showing the absence of C 16:4 (n-3) in their products, researchers and pharma companies may see their Premium Omega-3 DHA supplements as favorable and safe adjunct therapy.
