Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are essential, which means the body cannot produce them
they must be obtained from foods or supplements. The standard American diet is very high in omega-6s but low in omega-3s as a result of industrialized farming practices and modern food processing technology. Correcting this imbalance through foods and supplements may be beneficial for the entire body.
Optimal Omega-3 provides a potent 1500 mg of omega-3 fatty acids (750 mg each of EPA and DHA per 2-softgel serving) in order to support an optimal body balance of these beneficial fatty acids. This formula also includes lipase, a digestive aid to ensure maximum absorption. Lipase helps to prevent any fishy aftertaste, known as ‘repeat,’ (a.k.a. “fishy burps”) which sometimes occurs with fish oil supplements. This formula has a 75% concentration of EPA+DHA, which enables a faster body enrichment with these beneficial fatty acids. This concentration is much higher than that of most other fish oils commonly available, which allows it to impart its health benefits much faster. EPA and DHA each have unique beneficial characteristics for optimizing health. EPA often competes with DHA for absorption and incorporation into cell walls, thus a balanced ratio of EPA/DHA provides them with equal opportunity to impart their function and optimize the corresponding body contents. A balanced 1-to-1 ratio of EPA to DHA is similar to that found naturally in seafood.
Proper fatty acid ratios may help support*:
- Healthy joint function
- Healthy immune function and a normal inflammatory response
- Skin and hair hydration
- Eye health/hydration
- Cardiovascular health
- Healthy moods and balanced emotions
- Healthy cell membranes
- Cognitive function, memory, and brain health
