Tri-Cephal helps support cognitive health and/or brain function. Helps reduce blood triglycerides/triacyglycerol levels. Helps maintain health. Helps support brain, eye and nerve development in children ages 12 and under. Ref: These claims are taken from Tri-Cephal’s NPN license;
We sing the praises of the good fats in oily fish, but researchers at Harvard University in Boston(1) claim that fish oil supplements are a safer source of omega-3s due to the polluting agents in fish such as mercury, arsenic and lead, etc., and pesticides… (1) Ref: Mercury Levels in Fish Oil Preparations—Foran et al.

Few Quebecers eat fish every day (2). And what category of fish? Many fish contain very little omega-3 (3). In fact, 84% of Quebecers are deficient in omega-3, despite the fact that 59% of them eat one fish meal or more per week (2-4). The recommended daily dose of Tri-Cephal is equivalent to eating salmon every day.

Not to mention that to be edible, in general, the hot fish on your plate has been more or less altered by the heat and what about fish stuffed with a greasy breadcrumb? Cooking the fish, cooked over high heat on the grill, thus reducing the omega-3 content through heat.

Tri-Cephal, containing the omega-3 triad is truly DISTINCTIVE to Tri-Cephal. The polyunsaturated oils isolated inside each of the Tri-Cephal capsules are protected by vitamin E to prevent oxidation(5) and thus preserve the triple alliance of omega-3s in Tri-Cephal.

Tri-Céphal is highly purified by detoxification of pesticides and contaminants of all kinds such as mercury, lead, cadmium and arsenic. Tri-Cephal is purified of these harmful undesirables. Whether omega-3s come from fish or Tri-Cephal, they result in comparable blood omega-3 levels.

A large number of studies are made using fish oil capsules, such as the JdeM article of April 3, 2013, entitled:
”Omega-3s extend life expectancy”

You like fish, do not deprive yourself of it! (it’s delicious). You don’t like fish, there’s Tri-Céphal, otherwise you’ll have to find the omega-3s essential to your health in your diet (not that easy… 84% of Quebecers lack them). Well even if you eat fish twice a week many of you will potentially be in omega-3 deficiency, Tri-Céphal can compensate for this deficiency. The recommended daily dose of Tri-Cephal is equivalent to eating oily fish EVERY DAY. (it’s not nothing).
