Has anyone noticed the newest drug ad on TV? There is a new drug called Lovaza that is actually a Omega 3 supplement! Glaxo Smith Kline has taken a very effective supplement and has begun advertising that it has an FDA approved “drug” for lowering cholesterol.
If you read our prior posts about the FDA , you’ll know that FDA approved means nothing really! The doctor in the white coat also mentions that their supplement is pharmaceutical grade and molecularly distilled.
High quality Omega 3 supplements that you buy from your health care provider are also. I know for sure that drug store brands and large grocery store brands you do need to check for both of these criteria.
What I did appreciate is that there was not a long laundry list of side effects as there normally is with medications! ( i.e. do not take if you are male, female, overweight, underweight or you may experience dizziness, headache, runny nose, sneezing or death….)
Let’s be clear- Omega 3 supplementation is excellent for optimal function of many systems in the body- I am sure that I don’t want big pharma having their hands in my supplement and calling it a new drug!
Sneaky Big Pharma. This is a play to get our supplements regulated. That ain’t going to happen. The people are on to CODEX and will resist to their end.
