– This highly concentrated omega-3 fatty acid supplement supplies extra-strength amounts of EPA and DHA fatty acids derived from ultra-purified fish oil. Advanced molecular distillation processing super-concentrates the amount of EPA and DHA from fish oil to provide close to 70% omega-3 fatty acid content and allow for maximum intake of omega-3s in the fewest number of softgel capsules. Omega-3 fatty acids, often called the “good fats”, regulate inflammatory responses; assist triglyceride metabolism, and support heart, lung, joint, skin, brain and nerve functions. However, many people do not regularly consume fish and may not be getting enough omega-3 to obtain these health benefits. Although certain plants such as flax seed and walnuts also contain a type of omega-3, this form is slowly and often poorly converted to EPA and DHA in many individuals. In contrast, eating fish or taking fish oil supplements supplies omega-3 fats in their biologically active forms that are directly usable by the body
Facts and Functions
Anyone needing extra amounts of EPA and DHA can take this fish oil product as a safe, reliable source of omega-3 fatty acids. Individuals who do not eat fatty fish such as mackerel, salmon, sardine, halibut and tuna, two or more times per week, are unlikely to be getting adequate amounts of EPA and DHA. Utilization of omega-3 can be reduced by low intake of certain vitamins and minerals, some prescription drugs, high intake of omega-6 fatty acids, and alcohol consumption. Individuals with certain medical conditions often need significantly more EPA and DHA than can reasonably be obtained by eating fish. Important health benefits have been reported in studies using fish oil providing 300 mg to 2,000 mg of EPA and DHA. One to three softgels daily of this high-potency formula are often recommended to ensure adequate omega-3 intake.
