The Health From The Sun brand was first to introduce Evening Primrose Oil (EPO), followed by hexane-free seed oil extracts when they became available. Soon after, Health From The Sun converted its nutritional oil gelatin softgels into new vegetarian softgels. Our brand prides itself on dedication to research, consumer education and a passion for innovation, product quality and truth-in-labeling.
With products like FiProFLAX, The Total EFA, 100 percent vegetarian softgels and the first full line of fish oils encapsulated in fish gelatin, today Health From The Sun offers the longest-selling, most comprehensive range of nutritional oils and EFAs available in health food stores. With consumer demand soaring worldwide for fish oils and omega oils, the Health From The Sun brand will continue to stay on track with the latest scientific developments and technical innovations in the forum of nutritional lipids.
The Total EFA
Developed in 1996, The Total EFA nutritional supplement was first to combine potent omega-3 -6 and -9 nutritional oils, providing a complete spectrum of fatty acids, including essential fatty acids (EFAs) in one convenient product. Originally launched as a blend of organic flax oil, molecularly distilled fish oil, and borage oil, The Total EFA now consists of a complete line of omega-3-6-9 products for adults and children. The Total EFA is available as both liquid and softgels (with fish oils) or as vegetarian/vegan liquid (with plant oils). All versions of The Total EFA are guaranteed to contain only the most potent sources of EFAs, with no filler oils. The Total EFA provides nutritive support for your entire body—from head to toe.
Organic Milled Flaxseed and Pure Flaxseed Oils
Flax seeds are packed with vegetarian omega-3 fatty acids, plant lignans, enzymes and other important nutrients. Daily intake of these nutritional dynamos is one of the simplest and most beneficial ways to help keep your body healthy. Through years of research and expertise, Health From The Sun has pioneered several groundbreaking methods for obtaining the best nutrients from flaxseed while respecting flaxseed’s delicate nature.
Vacuum-sealed for freshness, this specially-milled organic flaxseed has a nutty taste and crispy texture that our customers love. Sprouted FiProFLAX, a more recent innovation, is organic flaxseed, sprouted to release maximum nutritional benefit, including increased levels of enzymes, vitamins, and minerals. Both products are excellent ways to enhance meals or snacks with flavor, crunch, and healthy vegetarian omega-3.
We invite you to examine our flaxseed offerings, available in liquid, softgel, and milled form, and learn why Health From The Sun leads the market in quality, potency, and variety.
Borage, evening primrose, and black currant seeds come from very different plants, but all have an abundance of a nutritionally important fatty acid called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid that the average diet severely lacks. GLA deficiency is fairly widespread in the standard American diet. Signs of GLA deficiency may include hormonal imbalances, skin conditions, and joint discomfort.
Available in softgel and liquid form, our Healthy Omegas are pure and potent, providing nutritional support for total body health.
PFO Pure Fish Oils
With the 2005 launch of PFO Pure Fish Oils, Health From The Sun again lead the category in innovation by offering the first full range of naturally fruit-flavored molecularly distilled fish oils encapsulated in fish gelatin—not bovine or porcine gelatin. This unique feature appeals to the most discerning consumers and to those with various dietary restrictions. Our selection of pure and pristine fish oils includes products for adults and children, each providing a rich source of omega-3 EPA and DHA to nutritionally support the heart and brain.
All PFO Pure Fish Oils are rigorously tested by a third party for purity, potency, and truth in labeling.
Health From The Sun was founded in Massachusetts in the late 1970s as a family-run business specializing in European herbal products. In the early 1980s, clinical studies revealed the health benefits of diverse plant and marine oils. As a result, Health From The Sun found a passion for these fatty acids and a new mission; to provide the widest selection of the highest-quality omega-3, 6, 7 and 9 nutritional products. Health From The Sun was first to launch many of today’s most popular omega supplements.
Our brand has established a loyal following because we never compromise quality, we continue to seek out new forms of beneficial fatty acids and we always offer great value. In addition, we’re dedicated to providing science-based plant and marine products, truth-in-labeling, and laboratory testing for quality, purity and potency. In 2008, Health from The Sun became part of the Nutraceutical Family of Brands and continues to be at the forefront of innovation in the marine and plant oil category.
