Premier Catch, a direct-to-consumer seafood company out of Seattle, Washington, has launched their Omega-3 Boost Box, which provides the servings of Omega-3s needed to strengthen your heart, sharpen your brain, and improve recovery. This specially-designed quarterly box was curated by co-founder and registered dietitian nutritionist, Ashley Besecker. The Omega-3 Boost Box provides 86,000 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids over a 3-month span, meeting the American Heart Association recommendation of eating fish twice a week and the daily dose of 1,000 mg of Omega-3s.
“Adding more seafood to your diet is the best way to improve heart health, decrease inflammation, and boost brain function,” says co-founder and curator Ashley Besecker, “We want to create this quarterly box to make meeting the numbers recommended by the AHA easier, improving customers' health.”
The Omega-3 Boost Box includes 12, 8-oz portions of Wild Alaskan King Salmon, 12, 6-oz portions of Wild Sablefish, and 1 Omega-3 Test Kit from OmegaQuant. Wild Alaskan King Salmon has the most omega-3s of any salmon species at almost 500 mg of omega-3s per ounce. These 12 portions provide close to 50,000 mg of omega-3 fatty acids. Wild Sablefish live in deep, cold valleys in the ocean, nicknamed “Butterfish”. It has over 500 mg of omega-3s per ounce, and the portions in this box provide over 36,000 mg of omega-3 fatty acid.
The Omega-3 Index Test is the gold standard in the medical community for omega-3s and provides a very simple way to measure a very complex molecule. With one drop of blood on specialized paper and mailed into the lab, this test measures the amount of EPA and DHA in the blood, specifically the red blood cell membranes.
“The Premier Catch Omega-3 Boost Box is a great way to enjoy your omega-3s and to see for yourself how these nutrients impact your health by testing your blood levels every 3-4 months. As a lifelong omega-3 researcher, I firmly believe in ‘food first’ when it comes to how you get your omega-3s,” says Dr. Bill Harris, founder of OmegaQuant and creator of the Omega-3 Index Test, “Coldwater, fatty fish—especially salmon and sablefish—is an ideal way to get your omega-3 EPA and DHA as nature intended. And Omega-3 Index testing is a great way to assess how your body incorporates the omega-3s into your blood. Combining a great source of omega-3 along with testing represents the ultimate in personalized nutrition."
