SPB LABORATORIES has been established by Dr Vivek Wayse (2007) to bring a new dimension in innovative and scientifically supported nutritional supplementation to the consumer.

The twin goals of SPB LABORATORIES are to :

Provide appropriate nutritional supplementation to the appropriately subjected population-based upon sound scientific evidence of the likelihood of real health benefits being obtained by that population. In other words, SPB LABORATORIES will only market those types of nutritional supplements where the evidence of potential benefit to the user is overwhelming. Provide these nutritional supplements in innovative formats, often in the form of a liquid or a soluble powder, which will bring a new dimension to the supplementation of those nutrients. SPB LABORATORIES has a team of nutrition formulation specialists and a manufacturing base which has been developing and producing dietary supplement for more than 15 years.

Awareness about Neurological Problems


Such disorders have long been orphan conditions with no proper awareness and treatment measures. When I thought of the scenario back in India, the picture looked grim. Children here not only had to suffer from their discomforts but also had to face social taboos.
My quest to find a simple cure began with Omega-3 and its benefits. Omega-3s accumulate in the brain during fetal development and determin intelligence and cognitive development in infancy and childhood. After extensive research, I developed a patented, highly effective and stabilized, liquid formulation of Omega-3 supplement made of fish oil (Sardine and Anchovy)
I am committed to the cause of raising awareness about neurological problems in children. The change will begin when not only doctors but also parents are aware and take active measures to detect problems in their children. Dyslexia and ADHD garnered ample attention after the release of the Bollywood film, Taare Zameen Par. To take a step ahead, we also need to spread the word about the cure to these problems. Come join my journey and help make a difference in the lives of thousands of children.

Why are essential fatty acids so important?


An important source of energy and a necessary part of the human diet is a Dietary Fat. Fatty acids (a component of fat molecules) are important in keeping our eyes healthy.

Two forms of essential fatty acids exist in nature: omega-3 and omega-6. These essential fatty acids help support the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune and nervous systems. They also help the brain develop and the sensory systems mature.

Research has shown that two omega-3 fatty acids—docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)—are important for proper visual development and retinal function.



The Best Omega-3 Fish Oil Starts With The Best Fish


omega3

 We start with the basics . . .

 We start with the healthy fish taken off from the pristine waters of the coast of Peru, Chile, and the U.S.

 Most of the fish used for our fish oil are Anchovies & Sardine. Known as forage fish, these tiny fish live off of algae and are low on the food chain. Because of this, they accumulate far less mercury and PCBs than larger fish do.

 So right from the start, you get purer, healthier fish oil


How The Best Fish Are Turned Into Outstanding Omega-3 Fish Oils


As you can see, we start with the best raw ingredients – small, healthy fish sustainably harvested from clean waters. But even the best raw ingredients can be ruined by poor processing.

That’s why we don’t skimp when it comes to processing . . .

Most fish oils are extracted using distillation. This process uses extremely
high temperatures which can damage the delicate Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 quality and concentration goes down.

We don’t do this.

Our fish oil first goes through a low-temperature form of distillation called ‘flash distillation’. Then, we use carbon dioxide to extract the Omega-3s from the fish oil. It costs more. But the exceptional quality of the oil makes the cost worth it.

This process uses no heat at all – just good ole carbon dioxide, the same stuff we breathe out every day – the same carbon dioxide plants thrive on. The carbon dioxide is never released into the air. It is recycled.

But we don’t stop there . . .

CO2 Chromatography Purifies Our Fish Oils Far Above Industry Standards


After using carbon dioxide extraction, we purify our Omega-3 even further with Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Chromatography.

In general, fish oil tends to be low in contaminants like mercury due to the standard distillation process. But we want to make sure our oil is as pure as possible. So with Carbon Dioxide Chromatography, we reduce mercury, PCBs, cholesterol and other contaminants even further.

In addition to purification, Carbon Dioxide Chromatography also concentrates our Omega-3. With this method we can get Omega-3 concentrations as high as 95%. To put this into perspective, with molecular distillation (the approach most brands use) you can only get to 80% concentration.


FAQS

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS INCREASE BRAIN VOLUME

  • The cardioprotective power of omega-3 fatty acids has been thoroughly documented in clinical literature. Less well known is their paramount role in optimizing many facets of brain function, from depression, cognition, and memory to mental health.
  • Approximately 8% of the brain’s weight is comprised of omega-3 fatty acids3—the building block for an estimated 100 billion neurons.4 Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) play a host of vital roles in neuronal structure and function, protecting them from oxidative damage, inflammation, and the cumulative destruction inflicted by other chronic insults.
  • Embedded in the omega-3-rich neuronal membrane are numerous proteins and complex molecules required for electrochemical transmission and signal reception. Scientists have recently shown that the precise balance of fatty acids in brain cells helps determine whether a given nerve cell will be protected against injury or inflammation, or whether it will instead succumb to the injury.
  • Omega-3s accumulate in the human brain during fetal development. The amount of the omega-3 DHA has been closely tied to intelligence and cognitive performance in infancy and childhood.8 But the omega-3 content of brain cell membranes involved in essential memory-processing areas diminishes with advancing age and in certain chronic brain disorders.
  • These findings have led scientists to suspect a role for omega-3 deterioration in development of typical age-related cognitive decline such as that seen in Alzheimer’s and chronic disease.
  • Early developmental deficits in brain content of omega-3s have been associated with poor brain maturation and neurocognitive dysfunction.11 These are manifested especially in the area of attention, increasing the risk for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other behavioral disturbances.8 Later in life, declining levels of DHA and EPA may contribute to development of aggression, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, dementia, and a variety of other mental health and even criminal conditions.

Cardiovascular benefits of omega-3 fatty acids


  • Cardiac societies recommend the intake of 1 g/day of the two omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) for cardiovascular disease prevention, treatment after a myocardial infarction, prevention of sudden death, and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
  • These recommendations are based on a body of scientific evidence that encompasses literally thousands of publications. Of four large scale intervention studies three also support the recommendations of these cardiac societies. One methodologically questionable study with a negative result led a Cochrane meta-analysis to a null conclusion.
  • This null conclusion, however, has not swayed the recommendations of the cardiac societies mentioned, and has been refuted with good reason by scientific societies.
  • Based on the scientific evidence just mentioned, we propose a new risk factor to be considered for sudden cardiac death, the omega-3 index. It is measured in red blood cells, and is expressed as a percentage of EPA + DHA of total fatty acids. An omega-3 index of >8% is associated with 90% less risk for sudden cardiac death, as compared to an omega-3 index of <4%. The omega-3 index as a risk factor for sudden cardiac death has striking similarities to LDL as a risk factor for coronary artery disease. Moreover, the omega-3 index reflects the omega-3 fatty acid status of a given individual (analogous to HbA1c reflecting glucose homeostasis).
  • The omega-3 index can therefore be used as a goal for treatment with EPA and DHA. As is the case now for LDL, in the future, the cardiac societies might very well recommend treatment with EPA and DHA to become goal oriented.

EYE BENEFITS OF OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS


  • A number of clinical studies have shown omega-3 fatty acids are essential for normal infant vision development
  • DHA and other omega-3 fatty acids are found in maternal breast milk and also are added to some supplemented infant formulas. Omega-3 supplemental formulas appear to stimulate vision development in infants.
  • Adequate amounts of DHA and other omega-3 fatty acids in the diet of pregnant women also appear to be important in normal infant vision development.
  • In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Canadian researchers found that infant girls whose mothers received DHA supplements from their fourth month of pregnancy until delivery were less likely to have below-average visual acuity at 2 months of age than infant girls whose mothers did not receive the omega-3 supplements.

Orthomolecular medicine aims to restore the optimum environment of the body by correcting imbalances or deficiencies based on individual biochemistry, using substances natural to the body. Scientific and clinical evidence is emerging for the supplemental use of orthomolecular medicine in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Essential fatty acids are necessary for building and maintenance of all cells in our body. The human body cannot produce essential fatty acids itself, and is therefore dependent on getting them through the food we eat. The essential fatty acids, EPA and DHA are mainly found in fatty fish, while the shorter chained essential fatty acids ALA are found in vegetable oils.
Omega-3 fatty acids (also called ?-3 fatty acids or n-3 fatty acids[1]) are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) with a double bond (C=C) at the third carbon atom from the end of the carbon chain.[2] The fatty acids have two ends, the carboxylic acid (-COOH) end, which is considered the beginning of the chain, thus “alpha”, and the methyl (CH3) end, which is considered the “tail” of the chain, thus “omega.” The nomenclature of the fatty acid is taken from the location of the first double bond, counted from the methyl end,The fatty acids are EPA, DHA and ALA which is found in plant oils. The body needs all three of them but the first two are more important. The body is able to convert ALA to EPA and DHA but very inefficiently (about 5% conversion rate). Therefore, we should mainly consume omega 3 fatty acids from other sources and reduce our omega 6 fatty acids consumption.
The modern day diet has changed the ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids within our bodies. It is estimated that the ratio used to be 1:1 or 2:1 which is the ratio in wild animals. In the last thousand years or so, and mainly during the last 150 years, the ratio changed from approximately 1:10 to 1:20 in favor of Omega 6 fatty acids. A menu that consists of too little omega 3 in comparison to omega 6 fatty acids is the main cause for this.
The change in ratio leads to a more inflammatory state in our bodies. Omega 3 fatty acids metabolites have anti-inflammatory properties while Omega 6 fatty acids metabolites tend to be inflammatory. Considering that the 2 fatty acids compete on the same digestion enzymes, the increased ratio of omega 6 fatty acids leads to an increased production of inflammatory metabolites coming in place of anti-inflammatory metabolites of Omega 3 fatty acids. Another reason why omega 3 fatty acids reduce inflammation is that they turn down the expression of certain genes which increase inflammation in the body.
On top of reducing inflammation, Omega 3 fatty acids have several other advantages. One of the advantages is that they increase oxygen delivery to the heart muscle thus reducing the load from it as it needs to work less hard in order to provide oxygen for its own work. Omega 3 fatty acids also have some advantages that are similar to those achieved during physical activity. They increase insulin sensitivity in the muscles, thus reducing diabetes. They also reduce the chances for cancer, reduce high blood pressure and have an important role in prevention of coronary heart disease and so on.
The minimum recommended daily intake of EPA and DHA differs between countries and organizations. Below are some examples: 1) EFSA (European Food SafeX`ty Authority); 250 mg EPA+DHA/day 2) American Heart Association; 2 serving of fatty fish per week 3) ISSFAL (International Society for the Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids); Minimum 500 mg EPA+DHA/day 4) WHO (World Health Organization); 200-500 mg EPA+DHA/day Our current diet contains a surplus of omega-6 fatty acids compared to omega-3 fatty acids, which makes it necessary to increase the daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids up to 3 gram to achieve a normal Omega-6/Omega-3 fatty acid balance
Considering that the ratio between Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids is more important than their absolute numbers, we should strive to decrease the Omega 6 in our diet. Omega 6 fatty acids can be found in a variety of oils including corn oil, soya oil, cotton oil, etc. It is recommended to replace those oils with canola or olive oil.
Our Western diet contains much omega-6 fatty acids and relatively small amounts of marine omega-3 fatty acids, which increases the unbalance between omega-6 fatty acids and omega-3 fatty acids in the body. Such unbalance is a driving force for development of lifestyle related health problems. Both the omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are precursors for hormone-like signaling molecules (eicosanoids) in the body. Eicosanoids derived from omega-6 are pro-inflammatory and supports chronic inflammation. Signaling molecules derived from omega-3 fatty acids have lower inflammatory potential, some are also anti-inflammatory. In many ways the eicosanoids fulfill each other, and that is why it is important to have a good balance between these. A normal Omega-6/Omega-3 fatty acid balance is fundamental for a good eicosanoid balance, while a high Omega-6/Omega-3 fatty acid balance supports chronic inflammation. Nordic Council of Ministers recommends that the Omega-6/Omega-3 fatty acid balance in the diet is below 5:1.
All oil and fats contains saturated fatty acids, as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. However, the relative amounts vary from one oil to another. Over half of the fatty acids in olive oil are the monounsaturated fatty acid oleic acid (C18:1, omega-9). Fish oil is rich in the polyunsaturated fatty acids EPA and DHA (omega-3), while extra virgin olive oil is rich in the monounsaturated fatty acid oleic acid (omega-9).
DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is considered a “building block” for the structure of your brain, as well as other parts of the body such as the retina, skin, and testicles. Its structure consists of a carboxylic acid with a 22-carbon chain and six double bonds. Most DHA in organisms is obtained from seafood derived from cold-water oceans. The higher an organism is in the food chain, the more concentrated the amount of DHA it tends to contain.

There are several reasons why DHA is considered an essential fatty acid. Approximately 60% of the dry matter of the brain is lipid, with DHA being one of the most prevalent fatty acids within these lipids. In the past, our ancestors consumed significantly more dietary DHA than today, with deficiencies possibly influencing mental health problems. DHA is considered essential for proper brain development and growth. There are numerous health benefits associated with adequate DHA consumption including: reduced risk of heart disease and prevention of neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer’s). Insufficient DHA consumption may lead to unwanted conditions such as: fetal alcohol syndrome, cystic fibrosis, depression, and aggression.

  1. Attention: Deficiencies in DHA are associated with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). There is evidence suggesting that the way the brains of ADHD children metabolize omega-3 fatty acids is different than normal. That said, it appears as though there is likely some marginal benefit from supplementation of DHA. Some speculate that dietary DHA supplementation may help prevent or mitigate ADHD symptoms.
  2. Cognition: Age-related cognitive decline has been correlated with low DHA levels. DHA is capable of improving a variety of cognitive functions including: learning ability, memory, and reaction time. It is thought that for optimal cognitive development in children, sufficient levels of DHA are required. Deficiencies in DHA during infancy and childhood may result in lifelong suboptimal cognitive function.
  3. Learning: Studies have long shown that including significant amounts of DHA improves our ability to learn and that deficiencies in DHA are strongly linked to learning impairments. In a study conducted among children with ADHD, supplementation of DHA was found to improve word-learning ability as well as oppositional behavior. Researchers concluded that literacy scores improved as a result of the DHA. There is evidence that supplementation of DHA improves school performance in children.
  4. Memory: A study conducted on 176 young adults found that DHA supplementation of 1.16 grams per day significantly improved memory function compared to a placebo. They measured this by administering a computerized test and comparing scores of both episodic and working memory. The memory improvements were sex-based; women experienced a boost in episodic memory, while men experienced a boost in working memory.
  5. Mood: While many studies correlate low EPA with depressed mood and suicidality, some research has identified a significant correlation between depression and DHA deficiency. It appears as though there may be a small benefit associated with DHA for mood disorders like depression.
  6. Neurodegeneration: People with neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease tend to demonstrate significant decreases in levels of DHA within the brain. As the disease becomes more severe, levels of DHA continuously decrease. Trials of DHA have been utilized with some success in decreasing cognitive decline associated with dementia.
  7. Reaction time: In the same study that was already mentioned with 176 young adults, supplementation of 1.16 grams of DHA per day resulted in quicker reaction time in regards to memory recall. There was another study conducted on elite female soccer players that discovered 3.5 grams per day of DHA-based fish oil resulted in quicker complex reaction time compared to a placebo.
  8. Visual acuity: There is some evidence suggesting that better visual acuity may result from increased intake of DHA. In a study conducted on aging adults (45-77), it was discovered that 90 day’s worth of DHA supplementation resulted in significantly quicker visual acuity than a placebo group.
EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid containing a 20-carbon chain and 5 double-bonds. It functions as a precursor for eicosanoids such as: prostaglandin, thromboxane, and leukotriene. Although many don’t consider it to be as “essential” as DHA, its primary benefit is that of inflammation reduction.

EPA is primarily known for its anti-inflammatory properties as well as its ability to improve mood. EPA itself doesn’t seem to play a direct role in the reduction of inflammation, but does reduce the amount of arachidonic acid (an omega-6). Arachidonic acid synthesizes prostaglandins that lead to inflammation.

Since EPA contains the same number of carbon atoms as arachidonic acid, it competes with it for metabolizing enzymes. The prostaglandins produced from the EPA are considered significantly less inflammatory than those made by arachidonic acid.

EPA isn’t considered an “essential fatty acid” but can reduce inflammation, and has been associated with mood improvement. Depression: Many studies have found that taking fish oil for depression significantly reduces symptoms. Most of these studies found that EPA rather than DHA produces improvement in mood. For targeting depression, researchers have recommended taking formulations with at least 60% of the omega-3 fatty acids consisting of EPA.

Inflammation: EPA is well-known to help reduce inflammation throughout the nervous system and brain. The reduction in cellular inflammation within the brain may lead to neuroprotection as well as improvements in mood. Some believe that the anti-inflammatory properties of EPA may be responsible for its mental health benefits.

Neuroprotection: It is thought that EPA may help act as a neuroprotective agent within the brain. Its anti-inflammatory effects may help reduce tissue damage as well as enhance existing neural activity. Some researchers speculate it accomplishes this by clearing apoptotic cells and debris from the brain, thus helping restore tissue homeostasis. EPA is also thought to improve synaptic plasticity.

Neurodegeneration: EPA is thought to play a role in reducing oxidative stress within the brain. The reduction in oxidative stress is thought to help prevent onset of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. While there is more evidence suggesting DHA plays an important role in preventing neurodegenerative diseases, EPA may offer synergistic benefits.

Schizophrenia: A study published in 2011 revealed that supplementation of EPA at 2 grams per day improved cognitive symptoms of schizophrenia. Researchers noted that positive symptoms also experienced marked improvement following supplementation over 24 weeks. Other research suggests that supplementation of omega-3 fatty acids (with DHA and EPA) could help prevent schizophrenia.
