Fish oil is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Thousands of studies show the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids for the heart and circulatory system. Two important Omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA), both found liberally in cold water fish such as sardines, anchovies, mackerel and salmon. These fatty acids help reduce low density lipoproteins (LDLs) and raise levels of good high density lipoproteins (HDLs). 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 and is found in cold water fatty fish. It is also found in fish oil supplements, along with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). 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. Many people do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids in their diet.
DHA (Docosahexanoic acid):
is an Omega-3 fatty acid that is found in cold water fatty fish. It is also found in fish oil supplements, along with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). 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-3 fatty 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 amounts we need from our diet or supplements. Many people do not get enough Omega-3 fatty acids in their diet.
Recommended Use or Purpose:
