More than just heart healthy.
Over 30 years of research has produced more than 7,000 reports and nearly 900 human clinical trials showing that omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) contribute to cardiovascular and neurological health*, and have positive effects on joints, skin and even pregnancy.* Our Marine Omega-3, has double the amount of omega-3s found in most drugstore brands, allowing you to easily get the daily recommended dosage of fish oil in your diet.
Fish oil and diet.
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.
Are you getting enough? Fatty acids come in two flavors: omega-3s and omega-6s. To optimize health, you should take in about one unit of omega-3s (fatty acids in fish oil) to about five units of omega-6s (fatty acids found in meat and vegetable oils). unfortunately, the average American diet reflects about one unit of omega-3s to almost 12-18 units of omega-6s! Taking omega-3 supplements can help improve that ratio and enhance dietary balance.
