Yukon Pure® has a distinctive orange colour. It comes from astaxanthin, a powerful natural antioxidant that’s up to 100 times more potent than vitamin E at binding single oxygen free radicals. Already among the purest of ocean fish, wild Alaskan sockeye salmon also boast the highest amounts of astaxanthin. Yukon Pure® Sockeye supplements are 100 percent pure sockeye oil, free of additives or fillers of any kind.
Many fish oils are derived from whole, uneviscerated fish, or as a low-grade by-product of rendering plants. These commodity oils require excessive processing before they’re fit for human consumption. While “molecular distillation” is often presented as beneficial, evidence (and common sense) suggests that the extremely high temperatures used may diminish the structural integrity and efficacy of the oil.
Our freshly caught wild Alaskan sockeye salmon go right from the boat to a dedicated plant on the shores of Bristol Bay. The fish is cleaned and the oil is removed, deep-chilled, and stored in oxygen free, UV-resistant containers. It’s then transported to a licensed facility where it undergoes simple filtration before being bottled or encapsulated in pharmaceutical grade fish based soft gels.
The Alaska Seafood logo signifies the Alaska Seafood industry’s commitment to these principles and it is your guarantee that this product comes from a careful, well managed and sustainable wild salmon fishery. Good for you and the planet!
They can prevent certain complications during pregnancy such a hypertension and eclampsia. They can also help prevent post-partum mood disorders which can arise when maternal reserves of Omega-3’s are sacrificed for the development of the foetal nervous system. “Omega 3 supplementation is necessary for pregnant women”. Mother and Child Foundation. Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition, London.
Research into foetal health and Omega 3 fatty acids has shown that 2 are very important for the developing foetus, DHA and Arachadonic Acid. (AA)
- DHA is important for the growth and development of the foetus and the central nervous system. It is required to develop vision, cognitive brain functions and for the production of chemical messengers in the brain.
- Arachadonic Acid is vital for certain growth parameters (weight, height, and cranium). It is quite often absent in highly processed oils as the high temperatures involved destroy it. Yukon Pure® is an excellent source of this vital oil.
Each 3-capsule (3,000 mg) serving provides these naturally occurring nutrients:†
Omega-3s: About 600 mg of total omega-3 fatty acids, including approximately 240 mg of omega-3 EPA and 220 mg of omega-3 DHA
Vitamin D: About 340 IU of vitamin D3
Vitamin A: About 2,060 IU of pre-formed vitamin A
Astaxanthin: About 0.36 mcg††
†Nutrient levels may change slightly from year to year, in accordance with natural seasonal and geographic variations.
††Wild salmon are the only fish that provide naturally occurring astaxanthin: a potent, carotenoid-class antioxidant pigment obtained from the zooplankton they eat. Among wild salmon species, sockeye contain the highest levels of astaxanthin and vitamin D3. The astaxanthin natural to our Sockeye Salmon Oil protects it from oxidation more effectively than the weaker tocopherol antioxidants added to standard fish oils.
DOSAGE: Take 3 softgels daily, preferably with meals or as recommended by a health professional. Not a substitute for a balanced diet. Keep out of reach of children.
