Vitacost Synergy Mega EFA® 1200 mg Omega-3 EPA & DHA per serving Description

Need to up your omegas? This purified fish oil formula provides the optimum ratio of EPA and DHA – no fish dish required.


What is Mega EFA Omega-3 EPA & DHA

 

Because omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential, the body must obtain them through diet. Cod, tuna and salmon are the best sources of omega-3s. However, they can also be found in plant-based foods, including walnuts, flaxseed and soybeans. Unfortunately, most people do not consume enough of these foods to take in the optimal levels of omega-3 fatty acids. When diet is lacking, supplementing with Mega EFA may be beneficial.

 

In addition to being a potent source of omega-3s, Mega EFA has been molecularly distilled for guaranteed freshness and purity. Compared to other low-grade fish oil supplements, which may contain trace amounts of dioxin, mercury and PCBs, Mega EFA delivers what it promises.

 

What are the key benefits of Synergy Mega EFA® 1200 mg Omega-3 EPA & DHA per serving?

5 Ways to Get More Omega-3s

Interest in omega-3s continues to grow, and for good reason. Omega-3--an essential fatty acid found in algae and certain fatty fish, such as salmon, sardines and cod--has been scientifically associated with impressive benefits. These include the ability to support cardiovascular health, maintain healthy cognitive function, support healthy moods and even influence joint comfort and flexibility.*

5 Ways to More Omega-3s

Despite the advantages of ingesting this substance, many people are stymied. Their question is: How can one eat the amount of fatty fish -- or other foods, like flaxseeds and walnuts (which contain an omega-3 precursor) -- necessary to obtain these benefits?

The answer is that it's often difficult to eat high-quality fish on a regular basis. The good news, however, is that there's a vast array of available omega-3 products that provide DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), the most prominent omega-3 essential fatty acids.

Here's a sampling:

1. Softgels. Omega-3 EPA and DHA fish oil in easy-to-swallow softgel form is economical, convenient to take and are often citrus- or fruit-flavored.

2. Liquid. Unlike strong-flavored cod-liver oil, omega-3 fish oil in liquid form, which most people take by the spoonful, goes down easily. Although not as portable as softgels, the liquid oil is good economic value. A 16.9 fluid oz. bottle, for example, may provide 100 servings.

3. Krill oil. In addition to omega-3 EPA and DHA, krill oil, derived from shrimp-like crustaceans, also contains astaxanthin, an antioxidant substance produced by microalgae which gives salmon its pink color.*

Krill oil is also a good source of vitamins A and E, may help support a healthy inflammatory response, protect against free radicals and contributes to a healthy blood lipid profile already within normal range.*

4. Flaxseeds. Flaxseeds, a good source of fiber from the flax plant, contain alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 precursor. In its cold-milled form, flaxseeds can be stirred into smoothies and sprinkled atop salads or fruit dishes.

5. Flaxseed oil is another option. With its nutty flavor, it can be drizzled on vegetable dishes, salads and even yogurt. Flax oil also contains plant lignans, a type of fiber found in plants, nuts, whole grains and seeds, and may help support cardiovascular health.*

If you're concerned about which of these omega-3 products are best for you or what amount to take, it's a good idea to discuss this topic with your physician or healthcare provider.
