Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation.
Fish oil is receiving increasing amounts of media attention as scientific evidence continues to provide proof of potential health benefits, the most notable being the ability to support normal heart function. In fact, the heart-health benefits of fish oil are so compelling, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration stated that, “Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids, (found in fish oil) may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.” Fish oil has also been shown to maintain a healthy blood pressure. In addition to profound heart-health benefits, fish oil also plays a fundamental role in the development and maintenance of brain and nervous functions such as preservation of memory and mental clarity.*
In 2002 the FDA approved supplementation of DHA in infant formula. Potentially important in fetal and infant neural development, DHA has been shown to be incorporated into brain and retinal cell membranes—particularly during the third trimester and early infant life. Fish oil supports the eyes and helps early development of vision.
DESCRIPTION: OmegaLife-3™ is a blend of omega-3 fatty acids designed to help maintain healthy cardiovascular and cerebral function as well as aiding in the prevention of age-related macular degeneration. OmegaLife-3™ is an amber-colored, semi-viscous, fat-soluble liquid. Each serving of OmegaLife-3™ contains the following active ingredients 800 mg eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), 400 mg docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and vitamin E. In addition, it also contains the inactive ingredients gelatin, glycerin, purified water, and orange oil. OmegaLife-3™ has been molecularly distilled to ensure exceptionally pure oil and includes orange oil to prevent a fishy after taste.
BENEFITS AND RESEARCH: Clinical research suggests that fish oil can help support proper brain and visual function. In 2002 the FDA approved supplementation of DHA in infant formula. DHA is poten-tially important in fetal and infant neural development, in that DHA and arachidonic acid have been shown to be in-corporated into brain and retinal cell membranes—particu-larly during the third trimester and early infant life. DHA is the predominant structural fatty acid in the central nervous system and in the retina of the eyes. EPA supports the synthesis of important compounds in the body. EPA is the precursor of thromboxane and leukotriene, compounds involved in supporting healthy circulation. They also promote healthy blood vessels.*
Evidence is accumulating that increasing intakes of EPA and DHA can decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease by preventing arrhythmias, decreasing the risk of thrombosis, decreasing triglyceride levels, slowing the growth of ather-osclerotic plaque, and decreasing inflammation.* The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has stated that, “Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may re-duce the risk of coronary heart disease.”
