Fish Oil

Fish oil provides omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA that support cardiovascular health, joint health, cognitive health and women’s health. Fish oil is typically a blend of the oils obtained from a number of sources such as menhaden, salmon, herring, mackerel, anchovies and sardines – each providing varying levels of EPA and DHA. We can also produce concentrated fish oil containing high levels of EPA and DHA, through a process that removes saturated fats from fish oil to increase the concentration of healthy fat, such as omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are held together by a backbone – in fish oil that backbone is called triglycerides. When this oil goes through certain types of concentration processes, the omega-3 fatty acids are held together by a backbone called ethyl esters (EE).

EPA: This omega-3 fatty acid supports cardiovascular health and prenatal health while lowering symptoms associated with depression, bipolar and arthritic conditions.

DHA: Studies show that DHA supports brain development, cognitive function, healthy vision, cardiovascular health and prenatal health, and it also lowers symptoms associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and arthritis.
