Unique EPA and DHA Formulas for Your Specific Age:
Omega-3 fatty acids are a family of unsaturated fatty acids that are required, but cannot be produced by the body. We must rely on our diet to provide the proper amounts that we need.
The two nutritionally important Omega-3's are:
* Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA): a long-chained fatty acid that is used by the body to form EPA and DHA. Often sourced from flaxseed oil
* Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Doscosahexaenoic acid (DHA): both are long-chained fatty acids. High concentrations are found in fish oil
Good sources of EPA and DHA come from small fish and tuna which provide a high concentration of these omega-3 fats. EPA and DHA do not require further metabolism, (like ALA) therefore are ready for our body to put to work.
* Higher DHA to EPA ratio aids in brain development and function, important for children, youth and seniors
* Higher EPA to DHA ratio promotes heart and cardiovascular health, important to adults and seniors.
All of Swiss’ Omega-3s and Wild Salmon Fish oils are sourced from wild, non-endangered fish. All are tested for traces of heavy metals, PCBs and toxins.
