Produced from oily fish such as sardines and mackerel, this concentrated fish lipid extract is purified for better absorption. Each capsule contains 1000mg of fish oil which yields 500mg of the important Omega-3 Fatty Acids EPA and DHA, an excellent choice for those looking for a high strength product. Studies strongly suggest that EPA derived from fish oils can lower the risk factors for cardiovascular disease. These effects include lipid lowering and reduced blood viscosity. Fish Oils appear to also reduce triglycerides and improving the important relationship between HDL and LDL.
Fish Oils produce favourable effects in inflammatory conditions by suppressing the inflammatory compounds produced by white blood cells. This particularly helps rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, Crohn's and other inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis. Fish Oils also contain DHA, one of the structural fatty acids of the brain and hence are associated with brain development and improve mental performance, are nerve calming helping to elevate mood too.
Research suggests that Omega 3 fatty acids from fish can both prevent and treat mood concerns. Despite having a geographical predisposition to SAD, Icelanders have the lowest incidence of it in the world, probably because they also have the highest intake of Omega 3 fatty acids.
All essential fatty acids supplements, whether derived from fish, flax, evening primrose or starflower oils, require nutrients such as manganese, Vitamin B3 , zinc and other co-factors for the conversion of essential fatty acids into their active components. It would benefit to use a good multivitamin/mineral supplement with them.
