EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil, which promote cardiovascular health by supporting healthy triglyceride and lipid metabolism, maintaining healthy blood flow, and supporting healthy platelet function.

They support optimal joint function and skin hydration by maintaining healthy prostaglandin and leukotriene production.

They are important components of neuronal cell membranes and vascular flow to the brain. Studies suggest that optimal concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids in red blood cell membranes are associated with emotional well-being. Both epidemiological and double blind placebo- controlled trials indicate that omega-3 fatty acids support positive mood. Harvard studies support the use of these at 2.5 grams per day for general maintenance and at higher doses to support cardiac, diabetic, neurological, joint and skin conditions. Specific special features:

Enteric coated gelcaps: Recent research published in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that enteric coated gelcaps have up to three times the bioavailability of regular omega gelcaps. Those who experience nausea or reflux from other fish oils should find this enteric coated, odor controlled softgel easier to tolerate.

Standard Dosage:  Take two capsules daily in divided doses preferably away from meals, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
