Opti-EPA 500 - More Convenient Source of Omega-3
Opti-EPA 500 from Douglas Laboratories is concentrated marine fish oil that supports cardiovascular health with enriched levels of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Opti-EPA is lower in saturated fatty acids than regular marine fish oil.
For many years, the American Heart Association has recommended that at least two times a week people should eat fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids to support a healthy heart.
However, some people remain worried about mercury or other contaminants in fish outweighing its heart-health benefits.
Nonetheless, the benefits for a healthy heart of eating fish usually outweigh the possible risks of exposure to contaminants.
But for those who may be still worried about mercury levels, Opti-EPA is strictly screened for the absence of any toxic metals and chemicals and is completely free of cholesterol.
And the oil is carefully processed and handled to avoid oxidation.
The typical American diet contains too much omega-6 and not enough omega-3. And a balance between these unsaturated fats seems to be necessary for a strong immune system.
Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce pain and swelling throughout your body. Sometimes, your body's natural defense processes can damage your blood vessels and lead to heart disease. An imbalance in favor of Omega-6 could produce such problematic effects.
Omega-3 fatty acids may help
- decrease triglycerides
- lower blood pressure
- reduce blood clotting
- boost immunity
- improve arthritis symptoms
- Improve learning ability in children
