There is a common misconception of eating fish to reach optimal levels of Omega 3 fatty acids. Most fish consumption is that of “farm raised” fish and it lacks proper levels Omega 3. Fish oil supplementation has proven itself beneficial because of this misconception. However, there are three problems associated with common fish oil supplements. These problems include: Absorption rate, improper amounts of two important fatty acids, EPA and DHA and a “fishy” aftertaste.
Omega 6 fatty acids are important to certain body functions but the typical American diet is extremely high in this type of fat. There should be a balance of 4:1 of Omega 3 to Omega 6 but the average person consumes 20:1 of Omega 6 to Omega 3. It is this imbalance that can cause so many problems with your health.
Each capsule provides 420 milligrams of EPA and 280 milligrams of DHA which is more than double that of most fish oil products. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are recognized for their benefits in supporting many areas of health.
Benefits of supplementing with Omega3 may include:
- Cardiovascular health*
- Lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglyceride levels*
- Increasing HDL (good cholesterol)*
- Supporting normal blood pressure levels*
- Improving circulation*
- Improving brain function*
- Improving the immune system*
- Reducing inflammation*
Enteric Coated OMEGA 3 with EPA/DHA is produced with the finest fish oil available that comes from coldwater fish harvested from the Nordic Sea. The oil is then processed using Molecular Distillation, which is the only current method that can remove heavy metals, PCB’s and other toxins to below detectable limits for human consumption. Compared to most other processing methods that heat the oil to temperatures of up to 250 degrees Celsius for 6 hours, Molecular Distillation takes only 45 seconds at the same temperature helping to preserve the quality of the fish oil and guarantees that no Trans Fats are created.
Our Enteric Coated OMEGA 3 with EPA/DHA focuses on all common problems associated with fish oil supplementation. They contain a Natural Pharmaceutical Enteric Coating Process which allows the capsules to pass entirely through the stomach and into the small intestines where they can be absorbed. This keeps the stomach acids out of the process and allows up to 3x more OMEGA 3 to be absorbed into the phospholipid membrane. This coating also helps eliminate the common fishy aftertaste that is sometimes associated with fish oil supplementation.
