Ultra Pure Fish Oil 700 (60 Capsules)
(Lemon Flavour) (Pharmaceutical Grade)
High-Potency Deep Sea Fish Oil, Cardiovascular Support
Ultra Pure Fish Oil, with 360 mg EPA and 240 mg DHA per capsule, is formulated to provide a higher concentration of EPA and DHA per softgel — double that of standard products. The other product feature is the purity of the Vital Nutrients pharmaceutical-grade fish oil.
Fish oil helps protect and maintain the normal function, fluidity, and health of cell membranes. EPA and DHA help maintain and support soft tissue and connective tissue. They are necessary for normal inflammation levels and protect cardiovascular, joint, kidney, and brain tissues from degeneration otherwise caused by uncontrolled inflammation (Kidd 2007). There appears to be a very special relationship between DHA and nerve tissue. A deficiency of DHA leads to delayed neural development and is associated with Alzheimer's disease and ADHD (Kidd, 2007).
Fish oil helps relieve mild mood changes and cramps associated with the menstrual cycle (Kris-Etherton, Harris & Appel, 2003). The mind and mood benefits of EPA that have been proven in studies include significant reduction in depression and aggression scores (Kidd, 2007).
There is a considerable body of evidence showing that increased intake of EPA and DHA decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease (Marchioli et al., 2002) by 1) preventing arrhythmias that can lead to sudden cardiac death; 2) decreasing the risk of thrombosis that can lead to myocardial infarction or stroke; 3) decreasing serum triglyceride levels; 4) slowing the growth of atherosclerotic plaque; 5) improving vascular endothelial function; 6) lowering blood pressure slightly; and 7) decreasing inflammation (Kris-Etherton, Harris & Appel, 2003).
Several studies show that fish oil supplementation significantly reduces mortality from cardiovascular events. In the largest randomized controlled trial of supplemental omega-3 fatty acids to date, coronary heart disease patients who received supplements providing 850 mg/day of EPA + DHA for 3.5 years had a 45% lower risk of sudden death than those who did not take supplements. Supplement users also experienced a 20% lower risk of death from all causes compared to non-supplement users (Kris-Etherton, Harris & Appel, 2003).
Interestingly, it took only three months of supplementation to demonstrate a significant decrease in total mortality and just four months to demonstrate a significant decrease in sudden death (Kris-Etherton, Harris & Appel, 2003).
Ultra Pure Fish Oil 360/240 softgels have a pleasant natural lemon flavour.
1 to 2 capsules 2 to 3 times a day with food or as directed by your healthcare professional.
