Your Fish Oil Should Not Stink!

Omega-3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA are fragile molecules that can oxidize or break down quickly if mistreated. Chemically, oxidation is a process where an oxygen molecule bonds to a double bond in a fatty acid. This changes the molecule into a oxidized fatty acid that can in turn oxidize other fatty acids or effect proteins. 


Chemistry in living organisms is highly regulated. Free radicals derived from oxidized fatty acids participate in unregulated chemistry that damages other molecules in our body.  We often identify people in our lives who are loud and unruly as "free radicals" for this reason! So how can you tell if a fish oil is oxidized?  In general, if the fish oil smells bad it is bad. 


In the press lately, there have been a few reports citing oxidation in some over the counter fish oil products.  Here at Coromega, we want you to rest assure that our fish oil products are very stable and not oxidized.  We have one of the longest shelf life stability in the business due to our high evolved proprietary processing format.  

Our highly purified fish oil is free from oxidation.  As oxygen is the natural enemy of EPA and DHA, the process of making our squeeze shots relies on a nitrogen rich environment, devoid of oxygen. There are virtually no opportunities for oxygen to enter our production process until you open our product.  Even the squeeze packet is a highly engineered multi layered packaging designed to keep Coromega safe and pure. So rest assured that you are getting absolutely the best quality you can with our tasty Coromega Squeeze and Coromega product lines.  We got you covered!

What Did You Say?

A recent study has reported that individuals with higher fish and omega-3 intake versus low intake have a reduced risk of developing hearing loss! 

Hearing loss not a big deal?    Approximately 30% of people over the age of 65 have a hearing loss disorder.  Hearing impairment begins to increase around age 50 as the tiny structures that regulate hearing begin to age.  Loss of hearing can significantly impact quality of life.

This study examined 65,215 women (1,038,093 person years) from 1991 to 2009. The women reported their dietary habits twice a year.  Women consuming 2-4 servings or more of fish per week (about 1 pack of Coromega per day) had a 20 percent reduction in risk for developing hearing loss.  This study reported 11,606 cases of hearing loss in the study population during the study period.  Women consuming more EPA and DHA had greater protection from hearing loss.

How might omega-3 from fish protect us from hearing loss?  Hearing relies on a number of finely tuned membranes and nerves that take sound waves from your ear and turn them into an electronic signal that your brain recognizes and interprets.  DHA supports healthy membranes and their function.  Remember that our brain and eyes run on DHA!  Blood flow through a part of the ear called the cochlea is also very important for proper hearing.  EPA and DHA support healthy blood flow and the authors of the present study concluding that proper blood flow may be the critical factor to improved hearing seen in this population.

So if you want to protect yourself from hearing loss reach for some fatty fish like salmon or herring 2-4 times per week.  If fish is not in your reach or herring doesn’t tickle your palate, take a pack a day of Coromega that contains 650mg of EPA and DHA per serving in a high digestible super tasty orange yogurt like emulsion.

Feeling Blue? Get Orange…Tropical Orange!

Welcome to 2014, a new year rich with possibilities and opportunities! While many of us are feeling a renewed sense of anticipation for the year ahead, some of us can’t shake a feeling of sadness or fatigue that mirrors the grey skies that accompany the season. In some cases, wintertime produces a lack of daylight and fuels the onset of seasonal affective disorder, or SAD.

SAD and Sunlight

Experts believe that SAD is brought on by hormonal changes in the brain. Many say that reduced sunlight and Vitamin D can lead to reduced production of serotonin in the brain, a hormone that affects happiness.

In most cases, people with SAD experience mild symptoms, such as irritability, while others experience more serious effects such as depression.

Coromega Omega3 + D

SAD is a serious disorder that can affect your whole life. Aside from laughter, prevention is also known as the best medicine and Coromega Omega3 + D is a great place to start!


Available in a delicious Tropical Orange flavor, the newest squeezable supplement promotes much-needed Vitamin D absorption, while still providing all the benefits and essential nutrients of fish oil into daily diets. The uniquely emulsified Coromega Omega3 + D delivers the same amounts of DHA and EPA (230 mg and 350 mg accordingly) as the traditional Omega3 Squeeze, with the addition of 1,000 IU of Vitamin D3 per pouch.


In addition to taking Coromega, don’t forget to try and exercise 30 minutes a day, three times a week, maintain a well-balanced diet of foods rich in vitamins and minerals, and get involved within your community! Tapping into your social support is a great way to stay active and surround yourself with friends.


This winter, get your own tropical sunshine with Coromega Omega3 + D and boost your mood and the moods of loved ones around you! As they say, smiling is contagious.

Horse Pills Are For Horses!

Many adults and children find it hard to swallow large capsules or simply dislike taking fish oil softgels that leave an icky fishy aftertaste. These reasons are just some of the reasons why we developed our delicious, single-serve squeeze that offers supplement-takers a tastier and easier to swallow capsule alternative, while still delivering the benefits of omega-3.

Why so BIG?

Most popular vitamins are extremely large because they include minerals, causing them to weigh approximately 1,000 mg to 1,500 mg1. In addition, supplements are made with fillers and coatings that help contain the contents of capsules1. Unlike most fish oil, Coromega comes in an easy-to-take squeeze instead of a large oil capsule, eliminating the need for fillers and coatings.

Even though Coromega isn’t a large pill, don’t worry about not getting the same amount of nutrients as capsules. In fact, it is said that nearly 90 percent of the nutrients found in most supplements are simply passed right through the body with little nutritious absorption. Due to Coromega’s patented emulsion process, Coromega has a 300 percent better body absorption rate than encapsulated fish oil supplements2. Essentially, you are getting more bang for your buck with Coromega!

Why so Icky?

One of the largest complaints that come from taking fish oil is the fishy aftertaste and burps. Traditional fish oil can taste yucky going down, and can leave a lingering aftertaste. Coromega is shown to eliminate ‘fish burps’ by improving gastric clearance and the delicious flavors are a treat to have2. Coromega offers a range of yummy flavors to cover everyone’s taste needs including Orange, Chocolate Orange, Lemon-Lime and Tropical Orange.

This year, save the horse pills for the horses, and take something that your body will really benefit from.

Make-Over Your Skincare Routine With Omega-3s!

What’s the secret to beautiful skin? It could just be omega-3s! We might be bias, but science is on our side here with research showing that the essential fatty acids can help nourish and heal dry skin among other benefits.

Omega-3 fatty acids are crucial to skin health, says Prevention magazine, as they form an integral part of the membranes that surround skin cells, making up a key lubricating layer that keeps skin soft and supple. Dry, rough, scaly skin has met its match with these essential fats, which can ultimately help improve overall skin texture by supporting the production of healthy skin cells and the skin’s natural elasticity, restoring its healthy glow. Healthy inflammation levels can also be supported with omega-3s since the fatty acids work to combat damage caused by free radicals and sun exposure.

Your skincare routine might just need a makeover with this news, but it’s an easy fix to start working towards better skin. Try adding fish rich in omega-3s to your diet, including salmon, tuna and anchovies, or pop a delicious Coromega Omega3 Squeeze once a day!
