These lemon-flavored ProOmega soft gels by Nordic Naturals provide high concentrations of EPA/DHA essential fatty acids. EPA and DHA are the two main components of Omega-3 found in fish oil. They are essential for growth and development throughout the human life cycle‚ from infanthood through the senior years.
ProOmega 1‚000 mg by Nordic Naturals contains 70 percent pure omega-3 which has been purified through molecular distillation to ensure that each capsule is free of heavy metals‚ such as mercury‚ and PCBs. The lemon flavor provides a pleasant alternative to the “fishy” taste of some omega-3 supplements.
What are DHA and EPA?
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are types of omega-3 fatty acids that are found in fish oil. DHA is an important component of the body’s cell membranes‚ particularly those found in the brain‚ retina and nervous system. Research has shown that supplementing with DHA fatty acids can help support brain‚ eye and nervous system health. EPA has been shown to be a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent. It also produces certain kinds of prostaglandins that can reduce platelet stickiness and the risk of blood clot formation.
Most importantly‚ fish oil may alleviate inflammation‚ therby reducing joint pain and stiffness. This allows you to stay active and healthy. In order to maintain good health‚ experts recommend that we get a balanced ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids‚ but unfortunately‚ the standard American diet is much‚ much heavier on omega-6 fatty acids‚ which can promote inflammation. It is for this reason that most Americans would benefit from taking a supplement such as ProOmega. If your diet is rich in meat‚ grains and starches‚ you are likely experiencing a fatty acid imbalance. Adding ProOmega to your daily routine can help rebalance your fatty acid ratio and help restore your health.
All omega-3 oils have some antithrombotic activity‚ meaning that it reduces the ability of your blood to form clots. This is usually a good thing‚ but if you’re already taking blood thinners‚ you should talk to your doctor before you begin supplementing with omega-3 oils. Each bottle of Nordic Naturals’ ProOmega Lemon 1‚000 mg contains 180 softgel capsules.
