Aker BioMarine’s new krill oil concentrate, Superba Boost is now commercially available for the U.S. market. At SupplySide West, company executives will share more details about this new product and will also discuss a new study being conducted with 400 U.S. 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.
Earlier this year, Aker BioMarine unveiled its processing technology Flexitech, which made Superba 2 possible. This platform has played an important role in the development of Superba Boost, a krill oil concentrate, which contains a significantly higher concentration of key actives, including phospholipids, omega-3s EPA/DHA and choline. The company is celebrating the launch of Superba Boost at Booth Y159 on Thursday, Oct. 6th from 3-5 pm. Attendees are invited to take the Superba Boost 30-Day Challenge.
Aker BioMarine is also 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.
In addition to Superba Boost, Aker BioMarine is also launching The Omega-3 Index Project at SupplySide West. The program was created to help bring more awareness to omega-3 EPA/DHA insufficiency and to 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
This project was developed in collaboration with Dr. William “Bill” Harris, an internationally recognized omega-3 expert and co-inventor of the Omega-3 Index Test. 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.
Atendees are also invited to a special omega-3 panel session taking place during SupplySide West on Friday, Oct. 7, from 9 to 11 am in South Seas F, Level 3 in Mandalay Bay. Dr. Harris will be giving a presentation on “Omega-3s and the Medical Community: What Doctors Need to Know.”
