Thousands of studies show the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids for the
heart and circulatory system however, many people do not get enough
Omega-3 fatty acids in their diet. Two important Omega-3 fatty acids
found liberally in anchovies, sardines, mackerel and salmon are
Eicosapentanoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexanoic Acid (DHA). Both of these
fatty acids help reduce low density lipoproteins (LDL's) and raise
levels of good high density lipoproteins (HDL's). These nutrients also
reduce blood vessel constriction, lower fibrinogen (the blood clotting
factor), and keep platelets from becoming too sticky.
EPA (Eicosapentanoic Acid) is one of several Omega-3 fatty acids used by the body. It is found in cold water fatty fish such as anchovies, sardines, mackerel or salmon. Omega-3 fatty acids are part of a healthy diet that helps lower risk of heart disease. Getting more EPA in your diet has positive effects on coronary heart disease, high triglycerides (fats in the blood), high blood pressure, and inflammation.
DHA (Docosahexanoic Acid) is another essential
Omega-3 fatty acid found in cold water fatty fish such as anchovies,
sardines, mackerel or salmon. Your body needs DHA for the proper
functioning of your brain as an adult, and for the development of your
nervous system and visual abilities during the first 6 months of life.
In addition, Omega-3fatty acids are part of a healthy diet that helps
lower risk of heart disease. Our bodies naturally produce small amounts
of DHA, but we must get the full amounts we need from our diet or
Enteric Coating is a special barrier applied on dietary supplements that prevent its dissolution or disintegration in the gastric environment. The coating protects against the effects of stomach acids, which can interact with, destroy, or degrade nutrients thereby reducing the overall effectiveness of the supplement. Enteric coatings are selectively soluble. This means that they don't dissolve in the acidic environment of the stomach, but they will dissolve in the more alkaline environment of the small intestine. Enteric coatings are used in fish oil supplements to delay the point at which the fish oil is digested thus ensuring sensitive nutrients can be properly absorbed by your body, and also helping to prevent fishy aftertaste, which is the main reason why people stop taking Omega-3 supplements.
Take orally 1-2 softgel capsules per day or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
