A bit of corporate history and anti-inflammatory fish oil.
SFH (Stronger Faster Healthier) was founded in March 2010 as a separate division of the Maine Natural Health Co and is dedicated to developing products that allow athletes to be stronger, faster and healthier. Maine Natural Health was founded in 2006 by pharmaceutical and medical scientists who have decades of experience in the study of chronic disease. We have used this knowledge to design and develop neutraceuticals that have a positive effect on your health and well being. The MNH label is found in independent and compounding pharmacies as well as in medical marketing and most recently Whole Foods in Portland, Maine. The SFH label is found in CrossFit boxes throughout the US as well as in specialized sporting good stores. SFH products are designed, formulated and produced in the same facility as the MNH products in Warren, Maine.
Our key products are: Clinical grade liquid Omega-3 Oils in five flavors (4 grams of EPA/DHA per 2 teaspoons) and seven different High-Grade, Low-Glycemic Whey Protein formulas for all ages and athletic abilities. Both products are from natural sources; our omega-3 oil comes from finely processed fish oil from Scandinavia which is 3rd party tested and free of PCBs and our whey protein is derived from milk from grass-fed US cows. Used together, these products will contribute to your overall health by reducing inflammation and increasing muscle mass. The rigors of athletic training quite naturally induce inflammation and affect the health of every cell in the body. Inflammation actually decreases muscle mass/strength and can induce chronic pain. Furthermore, intense workouts can make your cells energy starved and this is where supplements play a role in your recovery. Our bodies can not keep up with energy production during intense exercise periods. Recovery from exercise takes longer than just feeling rested. A sense of being rested occurs hours to days before our cells have recovered. A good supplement must bring our cells back to normal quickly and restore cellular energy. This is why SFH designed our Post Work Out Formula. Further, to function optimally we must develop and maintain strong, lean muscles without fatty deposits. Not everyone can eat lean protein every meal therefore we developed a range of clean protein supplements that do not increase fatty deposits in your muscles.
High dose liquid fish oil is a natural anti-inflammatory. SFH fish oil has now been proven through clinical studies to reduce pain and inflammation as well as a host of disease related problems from high triglycerides to cardiac arrhythmia, asthma and certain brain related disorders such as bipolar disease, depression and ADHD. Our Oils only come in liquid form for rapid absorption and we recommend that everyone take a minimum of 4 grams per day.
Our core products emphasize the treatment of “silent” and established inflammation and on muscle development to enhance metabolic rate, increase energy, manage weight and improve recovery rates from exercised induced activities. The Mission of the SFH (Stronger Faster Healthier) / Maine Natural Health is to apply science and medicine to the design, clinical testing, and commercialization of natural products that benefit wellness, fitness and treat established disease. This is our core competency and distinguishes us from other nutraceutical / nutrition companies that are based almost exclusively on marketing products with unsubstantiated claims. Our challenge is to take advantage of the mechanism based science approach to natural products and teach the general public and healthcare professional that at last there is a company that markets natural products that really impact health, wellness and disease states.
