What is fish oil, and what are its benefits?
Fish oil supplementation has been the topic of much research in recent years. Physicians are discovering many health benefits from the omega-3s found in the oil of salmon and other cold water fish. Omega-3s are the “good healthy” fatty acids (unsaturated fats) that you may have read about for heart health. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Research has shown that omega-3s help support many other systems in the body as well, including kidney function, the immune system, the nervous system, as well as help support overall health.
What is OmegaMint™?
OmegaMint is a specially formulated fish oil supplement uniquely flavored with natural peppermint. OmegaMint is rich in the important omega-3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). OmegaMint oil-filled softgels are easy to swallow or chew.
Why is OmegaMint™ flavored?
Many people have objections to fish oil because of odor or taste. OmegaMint delivers fish oil in a pleasant, natural peppermint flavor, minimizing fishy breath, aftertaste or fishy repeat.
Do I get enough DHA and EPA in foods I eat?
DHA and EPA are found in cold water fish; yet most of the U.S. population eats less than the recommended two servings per week. Some foods, including pastas and cereals, are now labeled as being “fortified with omega-3 fatty acids.” However, these foods often contain flaxseed oil, which is a source of “short-chain”
omega-3 fatty acids and not the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. Research indicates DHA and EPA provide a higher degree of support for the heart and other organs than the short chain omega-3 fatty acids. OmegaMint provides a direct source of DHA and EPA. Fish oil—not flaxseed oil—is recommended for heart health.
Should I be concerned about contaminants with OmegaMint?
Not at all. The fish oil in OmegaMint is tested for the presence of heavy metals and other pollutants and is molecularly distilled to ensure purity. OmegaMint is below the limits on mercury and lead levels in omega-3 consumer products pursuant to the GOED monograph (Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3’s).
