Nutraceutics Marine Omega-3
Marine Omega-3 is concentrated marine fish oil providing efficacious amounts of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA and DHA are vital to the normal functioning of cardiovascular and neurological health. Omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) have been studied for more than 30 years, resulting in more than 7,000 reports, and nearly 900 human clinical trials.(3) Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to have positive effects on the heart, brain, joints, skin and even pregnancy.* Studies have evaluated the multiple ways omega-3s promote cardiovascular health, in addition to the healthy functioning of many other biological activities.
Fish oil and diet.
- Marine Omega-3, contains 300 mg EPA and 200 mg DHA (500 mg omega-3) per softgel (almost double the amount of omega-3s found in most health food store brands). Two softgels daily provide 1 gram of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
- Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
It was in the early 1970s that Danish doctors first made the connection between the cardiovascular health of Eskimos and the high intake of fish oil in their diets. Today, the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil are considered an integral part of a healthy diet. In fact, omega-3s are important for normal human health.* They affect many physiological processes, including cognitive function, visual acuity, and normal immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory responses, along with supporting normal glucose and lipid metabolism.*
The omega-3 fatty acids thought responsible for the health benefits of fish oil come from cold-water ocean fish, such as sardines, herring, mackerel, albacore tuna and salmon. While it is important to keep fish on the menu, many find it difficult to eat enough per week to satisfy the minimum health requirements. In fact, many prefer fish oil supplements because they minimize the risks of consuming pesticides and other toxins often found in fish. Fish oil supplements provide an easy way to get the quality omega-3 your body needs.
