Fish oil is a natural rich source of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are critical for optimum function of multiple organ systems and maintaining overall health.
Key health benefits of Omega-3 EPA/DHA
Cardiovascular system: Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil have been shown to help maintain optimum blood levels of triglycerides and cholesterol carrying lipoproteins (LDL and VLDL) that have been associated with atherosclerotic plaques and blockages in the blood vessels. Omega-3 fatty acids can benefit in lowering the risk of metabolic syndrome which includes obesity, high blood pressure and high blood sugar.
Nervous system: EPA and DHA are vital during growth and development, especially in pregnancy and childhood. They support optimal development of the brain, the spinal cord and the entire nervous system. Moreover, it has been shown that DHA improves focus and concentration in children and adults and may help reduce effects of brain aging.
Anti-inflammatory: Long-term inflammation is a cause of many of the chronic conditions including cardiovascular diseases, inflammatory bowel conditions, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer. Omega-3 fatty acids may have a potent protective effect through antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions. EPA and DHA support the liver and digestive system functions, and promote joint and bone health. Omega-3 fatty acids help increase bone formation, affecting peak bone mass in adolescents and reducing bone loss.
Healthy Skin: Fish oil helps increase hydration of the skin and thereby can promote reduction of dry and itchy skin, and protect from sun damage, signs of aging and other skin conditions.
Dr. Rath’s Omega-3 EPA/DHA fish oil is naturally sourced and environmentally friendly. It is derived from sustainable sources of anchovies instead of large fish which are associated with a risk of heavy metal contamination. Omega-3 EPA/DHA is manufactured in a strictly controlled environment and is tested for known contaminants.
