Mega Omega-3 Fish Oils are obtained from fish found in cold, deep water. These fish provide more of the Omega-3 factors (fatty acids) than other fish. Omega-3 fatty acids have an effect on a variety of disorders including coronary artery disease and on lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Because essential fatty acids are found in high concentrations in the brain, they are essential for nerve conduction and brain function.
The primary protective components of fish oil are two long chain, highly polyunsaturated fatty acids called Eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]. There are a number of studies that demonstrate that EPA and DHA help prevent atherosclerosis, lower blood pressure, reduce triglyceride levels, and are highly protective against heart attacks.
Fish oils also have antiarrhythmic effects, help prevent blood clotting, and inhibit the production of inflammatory mediators that play a role in the development and progression of chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease.
Additional evidence is accumulating that a deficiency of Omega-3 fatty acids may be tied to behavior problems, learning, and health problems. Parents with children affected by ADHD (attention deficit – hyperactivity disorder) may consider using Mega Omega-3 Fish Oils to bolster their child’s intake of these important nutrients for their positive effects on nerve conduction, brain function, and mood.
Olympian Labs’ Mega Omega-3 Fish Oils are free of mercury and toxic minerals and do not contain trans fatty acids.
