Omega-3 is an EFA (essential fatty acid) that provides numerous health benefits. Omega-3 fatty acids are needed in our daily diets in order for our bodies to work normally. DHA, EPA and ALA (Docosahexanoic Acid, Eicosapentaenoic Acid and Alpha-linolenic Acid) are not made in the body so we need to get them from the foods we eat. EPA and DHA are found in certain fish and plants, with the purest forms coming from the oil of fish that feed on algae.
EPA and DHA, as found in Ocean blue® products may contribute to the maintenance of*: Heart Health* Brain Health* Eye Health* Joint Health*
Research on omega-3 fatty acids is ongoing in several health areas. Doctors recommend fish consumption as a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Anchovies, sardines, bluefish, herring, mackerel, salmon, wild salmon, tuna, sturgeon and lake trout are all great choices for getting a high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids. However, for those people who cannot eat fish or don’t like fish, fish oil supplements with high levels of EPA and DHA are excellent alternatives.*
Please consult with your physician before starting any type of fish oil supplement regimen. You may be provided with specific recommendations depending on your health and other medications you take.
