A Superfood From The Sea
The fishing fleet that navigates the rugged Bering Sea has gained worldwide attention in recent years. A particularly recognizable location is the port of Dutch Harbor, Alaska—a small place that supports a big industry. The pristine waters of the Aleutian Islands are home to scores of fish species, including one that has been linked to health and wellness for more than a century: Alaskan Cod. This is a fish that contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which are the only fats the human body actually needs. For adults, EPA and DHA are the most important omega-3s. We can use other kinds of fats for energy, but for best immune function, energy metabolism, and building healthy nerves, brains, and cell membranes, we need omega-3s.
There was a time in the not-so-distant past when irresponsible fishing practices brought our seas to the brink of crisis. Indeed, the threats of depletion and habitat loss have not entirely passed. The time is now for intentional and conscientious stewardship of our oceans and marine life. Big Bold Health is a company that is committed to environmental sustainability, scientific innovation, and manufacturing methods that embody the spirit of craftsmanship. We partner with fishermen who use hook-and-line equipment and flash freeze the fish immediately after harvesting, which are practices that preserve the natural composition and nutritional integrity of the catch.
To minimize waste, the entire fish is used during a proprietary oil extraction process that is carried out in a state-of-the-art facility in Dutch Harbor. This technique produces a marine lipid oil blend that includes a naturally occurring spectrum of omega-3 fatty acids that contain high levels of bioactive pro-resolving mediators (PRMs), which are substances that support healthy immune function, as well as all-natural forms of vitamin A and vitamin D.
Can it truly be the case that a fish considered commonplace is really a rare and specialized superfood? It is when that fish has a unique origin story and a journey from sea to marketplace that is carefully curated. Let Big Bold Health be your trusted partner as you navigate your path to optimal function and wellness.
