Ultimate Nutrition's Omega-3

 

Description


Ultimate Nutrition's Omega-3 features pure, distilled fish oil derived from fatty fish. Beneficial omega-3 essential fatty acids are found in fatty fish such as salmon, herring, and sardines. Fish omega 3s consist of biologically active EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which are a precursor to beneficial prostaglandins (hormone-like regulatory compounds). Omega 3s have been shown to decrease the risk of heart disease and other chronic diseases including certain cancers, arthritis, mental illness, respiratory disease, and obesity. Ultimate Nutrition's Omega-3 provides a naturally balanced blend of omega-3 EPA and DHA.

Many people are deficient in omega 3 essential fatty acids because the body can't make them from other substances and they must be supplied by the diet. The typical American diet, high in processed foods and saturated (bad) fats, is low in omega-3 fatty acids. Consequently, fish oil supplementation can have important nutritional benefits. Omega 3 EPA and DHA offer a range of health benefits including heart health, anti-inflammatory effects, healthy mental function, joint health and weight management.

Numerous studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils reduce the risk of heart disease and sudden cardiac death. One study, published in Circulation, found that participants who consumed at least 2 grams of omega-3s daily reduced the risk of nonfatal coronary events by 67 percent and the risk of heart attack by 65 percent, compared to those whose intake was less than 300 milligrams daily. “Our results suggest that a high fish intake may add a further beneficial effect for the prevention of coronary heart disease among middle-aged persons,” the study authors conclude.

Omega-3's have been very important in my life the last couple of years after hearing about how it helps with depression. I have been suffering from depression year after year and I wanted a natural way out. Omega-3s let that happen. After I started exercising more and taking these I have felt considerably better. I love it also for the heart healthy aspects of it! It can't be beat!
