Fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids are well known for their benefits on
reducing bad cholesterol (*1), improving lipid profile (*2), (*3) and fighting
inflammatory processes (*4). We offer high-quality fish oils and omega-3
supplements made with the purest ingredients available.
In the 70s, researchers made an intriguing
discovery while studying the Eskimos from Greenland. Although they were
ingesting large amounts of fats they didn't tend to register
cardiovascular disease episodes. The explanation was in the dietary fish oils
from the fatty fish which served as the basis for their food.
oil contains omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 is considered to be an essential
fatty acid, meaning that that the body can't synthesize it. Omega-3 fatty
acids, unlike saturated and trans-fats, help keep the arteries
clear by promoting a better functioning of the cardiovascular system (*5)
and offering protection against heart disease (*6).
Typical Western diets contain high intakes of red meat, high-fat foods,
refined grains and high-sugar drinks. This may deregulate omega-3 / omega-6
ratio thereby promoting inflammatory processes.
Supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids
found in fish oil help maintain an optimal 1:1 ratio and so help the blood
vessels to remain healthy and reduce the risk of plaque build-up. Fish oil is
known to stimulate eicosanoids, signaling molecules with anti-inflammatory
Omega-3 fatty acids lower both serum triglycerides (*7) and
LDL 'bad' cholesterol (*1), improve immune function (*8)
and have anti-inflammatory activity (*4).
shows that consumption of fatty fish (rich in omega-3) is associated
with a lower heart failure incidence (*9).
American Heart Association recommends that an adult consume two units of
any fatty fish (such as salmon) per week. This is equivalent
to consume 400 to 500 mg of EPA and DHA per day. Individuals
suffering from any heart disease should double that amount (1000 mg) (*10).
Any person who can't have the recommended fatty fish weekly amount can get
their omega-3 through supplements.
There are three major types of omega 3. The first two - Eicosapentaenoic
acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - are found mainly in fish such as
salmon, tuna, trout and sardines. EPA and DHA are often called omega-3 marine.
The third omega-3 fatty acid is alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and can be mainly
found in plant-based foods, such as flaxseed, walnuts and soy oil.
According to research, EPA
and DHA seem to have more health benefits than ALA (*11). Both EPA and DHA
provide protection against heart attacks and strokes (*12), (*13). In addition,
these fatty acids also have anti-inflammatory properties (*4).
