Carlson Labs - Norwegian Salmon Oil Bonus Pack 500 mg. - 230 Softgels
Cardiovascular, Brain and Vision HealthOmega-3’s are polyunsaturated fatty acids that provide you with many important health benefits, from normal brain and heart function to mood and skin health. They’re considered “essential” because your body can’t make them, so you must obtain them through your diet. Salmon is one of the healthiest types of fish you can get in your diet, but most of us don’t eat enough salmon to get the recommended daily value of Omega-3’s, making a supplement like Carlson Labs Norwegian Salmon Oil a good option. In each dose, you’ll get 2,000 mg of Norwegian Salmon Oil, providing a total of 500 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids, including 220 mg of Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and 180 mg of Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) to support your cardiovascular system, your heart and brain function, and your vision and joint health.
Why a Supplement?To get optimal levels of Omega-3’s in your body, the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that you eat at least two 3.5-ounce servings of fatty fish per week. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t consume this much fish. In fact, studies indicate that 95% of Americans don’t get enough EPA and DHA, so a supplement like Carlson Labs Norwegian Salmon Oil is a great option to fill the gap.
Two Most Important Omega-3’sEPA and DHA have been shown to be the most important Omega-3’s for your health. EPA is found in fatty, cold-water fish, with this formula netting more than 50% from Norwegian Salmon, plus smaller amounts from anchovies, sardines, and mackerel. EPA is most recognized for its benefits to your cardiovascular system and has been shown to help maintain a healthy, stable heart, healthy blood vessels and circulation, and healthy triglyceride levels. DHA is also found in these fatty, cold-water fish and is best known for its role in supporting your brain and vision health. It can help improve your cognitive function, enhance nerve transmission, is found in high amounts in your retinas, and is important for optimal vision health.
Creating a BalanceThe typical American diet is high in Omega-6 from poultry, eggs, nuts, vegetable oils and seed oils and is low in Omega-3 polyunsaturated fats from foods like salmon and sardines. Health professionals recommend that you receive a specific balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids for optimal health. The typical American diet has an Omega-6-to-Omega-3 ratio of 15:1, while the recommended balance is 4:1, so we have some work to do! Research indicates that if you follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, you likely have even lower levels of EPA and DHA than average, because vegetables don’t contain them.
Are You Getting Enough?Experts agree that you should consume at least 500 mg to 1,000 mg of Omega-3’s daily for optimal cardiovascular-system function and optimal wellness. With Carlson Labs Norwegian Salmon Oil, you get a combined 500 mg of Omega-3 fatty acids to help you meet those highest recommendations for your health. If you’re not getting enough of these important polyunsaturated fatty acids, it’s time to up your intake!

Omega-3 fatty acids are important and essential nutrients for our health. They are composed of long chain carbons, which are polyunsaturated; they have many double bonds. The term omega-3 or n-3 refers to the location of the first double bond on the third carbon. Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), Eicosapentainoic Acid (EPA) and Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) and are recognized as important and/or essential omega-3's in human nutrition and physiology. Because of their unique structure, omega-3's have important and unique function in our bodies. EPA and DHA have a longer structure and contain more double bonds than ALA.
