Omega-3 fatty acids are an important building block to the human body. The human body is unable to generate its own Omega-3s, thus it must be obtained from outside sources.
Benefits of Omega-3 Supplementation
- Inflammation Support: highly anti-inflammatory, helps prevent chronic low-grade inflammation
- Joint Pain Relief: reduces inflammation, stiffness, swelling, and pain in the joints
- Brain Health: support proper blood flow in the brain and reduces the risk of developing age-related mental decline
- Mood Support: facilitates communication between brain cells, helps smooth out mood swings and symptoms of depression
- Cardiac health: Reduces levels of triglycerides
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What Is The Omega-3 Source In Your Softgels?
A: Our Omega-3 Softgels are made from the following fish: anchovy, herring, sardine, and mackerel!
Q: Why Should I Take Omega-3s?
A: Omega-3s are an essential group of fatty acids the human body requires for survival that can only be obtained through the foods we eat. Humans are unable to produce Omega-3s on our own and require a dietary source. It is thought that we began to incorporate Omega-3s into our diets during the Marine Isotope Stage 6 of the glacial period; we began to understand tidal movements more and relied upon shellfish and seafood more for calories. When this happened, the brain was able to become better and better as time passed.
Q: How Do Omega-3s Help Pain And Inflammation?
A: Omega-3s utilize COX (cyclooxegenase) enzymes to produce anti-inflammatory molecules. These enzymes are normally pro-inflammatory and increase pain signals throughout the body. Normally, there are only arachidonic acid precursors available to these enzymes. Arachidonic acid generally derives from Omega-6 fatty acids. The American diet is completely filled with Omega-6s. Incorporating more omega-3 into your routine can reduce joint pain and inflammation throughout the body. The omega-3s will replace some of the omega-6s in the cell membranes.
NSAIDs are the most popular COX inhibitors; however, they can have serious side effects when taken long-term. NSAIDs block these enzymes and the omega-6 fatty acid cannot eventually turn into pro-inflammatory molecules. Omega-3 fatty acids simply replace the starting molecule and allow the enzymes to produce healing factors and anti-inflammatory substances.
Q: What Does EPA And DHA Mean?
A: EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.
EPA has anti-inflammatory effects while DHA has brain health effects. DHA does have anti-inflammatory effects too but is thought to be more important for cell membrane structure. Our Omega-3 Softgels contain 892mg of EPA and 640mf of DHA in each serving.
Q: How Does Omega-3 Improved Brain Health And Mood?
A: Promotes blood flow in the brain, aids in brain tissue growth, and supports cognition and memory skills. Omega-3s may also help prevent neurodegenerative disorders. Omega-3s make the structures of the neurons better and also reduce inflammation within the brain and nervous system.
One common symptom associated with Omega-3 deficiencies is depression. Omega-3s are neuroprotective and may reduce mild to moderate symptoms of depression as these fatty acids cause changes in neuronal pathways. At this time, they are not meant to replace standard drugs, but work is ongoing.
