Why You Should Be Taking Fish Oil

Fish OilThis month, we’re highlighting the importance of EPA/DHA Fish Oil!

Omega Pure EPA-DHA 500 is a highly concentrated and purified fish oil supplement containing the key omega-3 essential fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). An extensive body of clinical research has demonstrated the benefits of these fatty acids, which include:
• Healthy cardiovascular function
• Healthy immune function
• Musculoskeletal support
• Skin vitality
• Cognitive support

How Does It Work?
Omega Pure EPA-DHA 500 provides ample amounts of EPA, DHA, and other omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are important for optimal health and wellness. Omega-3 fatty acids are considered “essential” because your body doesn’t produce them. In other words, you need to consume these certain fatty acids from food and/or nutritional supplements. The major food source in the human diet is fish. Unfortunately, eating large amounts of fish is a growing health concern due to noxious heavy metals and environmental toxins that tend to accumulate in marine ecosystems. For simplicity, supplementing with this fish oil can help you meet your daily requirements.

Support for Healthy Cardiovascular & Immune Function
Research shows that DHA and EPA are some of the strongest natural promoters of a healthy cardiovascular system and healthy immune function.

Musculoskeletal Support
As we age, our joints are exposed to physical stress from exercise and daily activity. As joints and cartilage lose integrity, your body naturally produces more inflammatory biomarkers (which can lead to joint discomfort). Research suggests that supplementing with EPA and DHA may help decrease joint discomfort and support joint health.

Skin Health & Vitality
The DHA and EPA in fish oil are anti-inflammatory nutrients for skin tissue, which is why regular use of a fish oil supplement promotes healthy skin.

Cognitive Support
EPA and DHA supplementation has been shown to significantly promote cognitive health because DHA and EPA are important components of neuron membranes.

How Much Fish Oil Should You Be Getting?
Research suggests that a combined intake of EPA and DHA between 1000-3000 mg per day (in a 3:2 ratio of EPA:DHA) is effective to support health and longevity. This comes out to 2-3 servings of Omega Pure EPA-DHA 500 daily.
