Sun's PFO


Description


Health from the Sun's PFO contains pure fish oil, high in omega 3 essential fatty acids. Omega 3s found in fish consist of biologically active EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which are precursors to beneficial prostaglandins (hormone-like regulatory compounds). Omega 3 EPA and DHA offer multiple benefits including mood improvement, heart health, anti-inflammatory effects, healthy mental function, joint health and weight management.

Omega 3s are considered essential fatty acids because the body can't make them from other substances and they must be supplied by the diet. The American diet is often deficient in omega 3 fatty acids. Therefore, fish oil supplementation can have important nutritional benefits. Studies suggest that a diet deficient in omega 3s may increase the risk of mood disorders

Researchers found that fish oil supplementation can help improve mood disorders (such as depression and ADHD) in adults and children. One placebo-controlled study, published in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, found that fish oil can improve ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder) in children without side effects.

The researchers found that after three months, the children taking fish oil had dramatically improved behavior. After seven months, children taking fish oil were less restless and were doing better in school. Furthermore, concentration and attention improved by 33 percent for children taking fish oil. When children taking placebo capsules were switched to fish oil, they also showed improved behavior.
