New Data Says Omega-3s May Increase Longevity

Beyond the benefits of heart health improvement, scientists have discovered surprising data that omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the overall risk of an early death. That reduction is seen not only in people with known chronic diseases but even in those who appear healthy.

Norwegian and Australian studies found an increase in longevity when using omega-3 supplements daily compared to a placebo group. These studies confirm the Harvard School of Public Health study which also indicated that being deficient in omega-3s may be responsible for thousands of preventable deaths each year in the United States.

While healthcare costs skyrocket, many in the medical and public health community are looking for ways to reduce unnecessary deaths because of lifestyle choices. Omega-3 fatty acids are available in supplements and are an easy way to get this necessary nutrient that not only promotes heart health but mental health.

Omega-3s are an essential part of a good diet. Omega-3 fatty acids have proven to be beneficial when it comes to lowering LDL cholesterol and balancing it with HDL cholesterol. Omega-3 fatty acids also are important for the digestive system as they may help reduce the amount of fat in the liver.

In addition, new studies indicate that omega-3 fatty acids may be effective nutritional support when it comes to improving cognitive abilities and balancing mood.

Furthermore, supplementing with omega-3s may promote a healthy prostate. Clearly, there are numerous benefits to getting additional omega-3s in the diet. Omega-3s can be found in fish oil and flaxseed supplements.

Making some lifestyle changes and adding omega-3 supplements may increase health and longevity. *

Question: Cold processing is best for fish oil products. Are ALTRUM Nutritional Oils and Ultra Omega 3 products cold processed?

ALTRUM: ALTRUM Nutritional Oils and Ultra Omega 3 supplements are manufactured using a patented cold process of molecular distillation. During this process high vacuum pressure is used to evaporate the fish oil. The condensate (omega 3 fatty acids) is caught on a cooled surface. No heat is ever used in this process. This form of molecular distillation guarantees removal of all impurities while maintaining the quality of omega 3 fatty acids. It takes approximately 10 gallons of premium fish oil to produce one gallon of top grade marine lipids using our patented process.

Nutritional Oils (DNO) is an all-in-one essential fatty acid (EFA) formula that includes premium omega 3 fatty acids from ultra purified fish oil and pure flaxseed oil, the two best sources of omega 3 available.

Ultra Omega 3 (DUO) oil is a concentrated marine lipid source of omega 3 fatty acids from fish oils. Ultra Omega 3 provides an ideal source of the highest quality EPA and DHA essential fatty acids from premium, molecular-distilled marine lipids from fish oils. *

A.J.’s Prostate Formula Adds to Smart Wellness Plan for Men

“Most men give little thought to the role the prostate gland plays in their body. Prostate complications are among the most common health problems affecting men worldwide. In fact, close to 85 percent of men develop some type of prostate problem by the age of 60. This statistic is even more acute in the United States, where 90 percent of men have, or will have, prostate-related problems at some point in their lives.

Vigilant self care with better nutrition and prompt medical attention when necessary are the best defenses for health.” *

ALTRUM Dealers – Make Sure to Test Your Websites

Online sales of ALTRUM products is one of the best ways Dealers earn income and commission credits, so it’s vital Dealers provide accurate links from their websites to the ALTRUM website. Using the correct computer code on the links to, and its pages, is the only way Dealers can be sure to receive credit for their customers’ orders.

Some Dealers may be using an outdated linking code, which would prevent them from receiving credit for their customer’s orders.

Dealers will benefit by periodically checking to make sure the links they provide from their websites to AMSOIL, ALTRUM and AGGRAND are correct. Last year’s links no longer work from Dealers’ websites and Dealers should update the links they provide immediately to make sure they are receiving credit when their customers order ALTRUM products.

The link Dealers need to provide on their own websites must contain their ZO number in order for them to receive the credit for customers’ orders. Here is a clarification of website linking codes:

(where XXXXXX = Dealer’s ZO#)

(where XXXXXX = Dealer's ZO#)

Comparison of the two links shows “/redirect.cgi?” is the portion of the link that is not valid. The correct link now goes directly to the specific corporate catalog “/catalog.aspx?”

With the correct linking code, Dealers can link to any page on the ALTRUM website and their ZO transfers to AMSOIL INC. as the referring Dealer. The correct linking code can be found in the AMSOIL INC. Dealer Zone by clicking in the “Services” tab, “Dealer Websites,” then click on “Link Your Site.” Here Dealers find the specific linking code for each of the corporate websites to assure they receive credit for their customers’ purchases.

Dealers can check to make sure their links are sending customers to the website by clicking on the link on their websites and looking at the address when they arrive at If the link is correct, the page should contain the Dealer’s ZO number in the page address.


LATE SEASON TOMATOES — Tomatoes in the AGGRAND growth plots remained on the vines to ripen late into the season. Early season weather conditions were cool and rainy, yet the AGGRAND-fertilized tomatoes delivered a high yield by the end of the season, outperforming the leading organic fertilizer by a substantial amount. The AGGRAND-fertilized tomatoes developed to be about 4 inches in diameter and ripened on the vines to a deep red.
