#1 Pharmacist Recommended Fish Oil/Omega-3 Brand.*
What are the benefits of fish oil and what is the recommend amount of omega-3?
It is recommended that healthy Americans consume two servings of fatty fish per week3 providing about 1,750 -3,500 mg of DHA and EPA. This amount is equivalent to 250-500 mg of DHA and EPA daily, the critical omega-3s.
Consumption of omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) helps support a healthy heart.†
Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
What foods are sources for omega-3 fatty acids?
EPA and DHA are found in fatty fish, like salmon, mackerel, anchovies and sardines. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is another fatty acid found in flax, canola, soy, perilla, and walnut oils. At a low rate, our bodies can convert ALA into EPA and DHA.
Δ Purity levels for PCBs, dioxins, furans and mercury are below .09 ppm, 2ppt WHO TEQs and 0.1 ppm respectively.
