Earlier this year, Aker BioMarine launched Superba™ 2 to the U.S. market. Now, during SupplySide West, the company is excited to introduce Superba Boost, a new krill oil concentrate that is commercially available for the US market.
Company executives will also be on hand at to discuss a new study being conducted with 400 United States Army Ranger recruits, a trial that is first-of-its-kind in size and scope. Aker BioMarine is also launching The Omega-3 Index Project™, an educational platform aimed to bring more awareness to the ramifications of omega-3 insufficiency. Dr. Bill Harris, an internationally recognized omega-3 expert, co-inventor of the Omega-3 Index Test and President of OmegaQuant Analytics, will be testing attendees’ omega-3 levels at SupplySide West at the Aker BioMarine Booth #Y159.
Superba Boost Makes US Debut
Aker BioMarine’s new processing technology—Flexitech™—that made Superba 2 possible also played an important role in the development of Superba Boost. Superba Boost is a krill oil concentrate, which contains a significantly higher concentration of key actives, including phospholipids, omega-3s EPA/DHA and choline. We are celebrating the launch of Superba Boost at Booth Y159 on Thursday, October 6th from 3-5pm. Come visit us to learn more about this new innovation.
Can Superba Boost Improve the Performance of the World’s Toughest Army Recruits?
Aker BioMarine is helping to “boost” the performance and mental health of some of the world’s toughest military recruits. In August, scientists from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) launched a comprehensive study called “Ranger Resilience and Improved Performance on Phospholipid Bound Omega-3s” (RRIPP-3), which is being sponsored by Aker BioMarine. This randomized double-blinded, placebo-controlled study will help determine whether omega-3 EPA/DHA intake from Superba Boost can help improve resilience, cognitive processes and overall performance among 400 Army Ranger recruits.
Got Omega-3s? Probably Not Enough...
At SupplySide West 2016, Aker BioMarine also kicks off The Omega-3 Index Project, a program created in collaboration with Dr. Bill Harris at OmegaQuant Analytics. The goal of the Omega-3 Index Project is to help bring more awareness to omega-3 EPA/DHA insufficiency and encourage consumers to regularly measure their omega-3 levels using the Omega-3 Index Test, a nutritional tool used to assess cardiovascular and overall health. By using the Omega-3 Index test, consumers and health practitioners now have the ability to identify, correct and maintain healthy levels of omega-3s EPA/DHA, while reducing the risk of chronic disease. Aker BioMarine is inviting show attendees to get their levels tested onsite with Dr. Harris and learn more about The Omega-3 Index Project - Thursday from 1-3 pm and Friday from 12-2 pm.
