(Promotional Item) Webber Naturals 4 x Omega-3, EPA400:DHA200, 80 Softgel
Omega-3 essential fatty acids are required in our diet for support of physical, emotional, and mental health. EPA and DHA, two members of the omega-3 fatty acid family, are found abundantly in fish oil.
An overabundance in consumption of trans saturated and saturated fats coming from processed and packaged foods, and diets high in meat protein causes a nutritional imbalance, leading to a deficiency of omega-3.
Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to support brain function and reduce levels of serum triglycerides, having a beneficial effect on cholesterol levels.
The omega-3 nutritional category has been associated with heart health because EPA provides some ability to lower cholesterol. More importantly, EPA provides an anti-inflammatory effect in the lining of the coronary arteries of the heart. Coronary inflammation is now considered as a central factor in the promotion of heart disease. A chronic pro-inflammatory state in the coronary arteries drives the formation of atherosclerosis [artery plugging build-up]. Furthermore, EPA has a beneficial blood thinning effect that lowers the risk of an inappropriate blood clot. When EPA is chronically lacking in the cardiovascular system, a pro-thrombotic state can emerge, significantly raising the risk for inappropriate blood clotting [thrombosis] in the coronary arteries producing a heart attack. A chronic lack of EPA also raises the risk of stroke and pulmonary embolism. All such inappropriate blood clots are life threatening, and at the least significantly compromise life-quality. The older we become the more important it is to ensure adequate omega-3 EPA intake and fish oil capsules present the most straightforward way of doing that.
DHA is important for risk reduction for depression. Depression is associated with getting older and this in part may relate to a relative lack of DHA being produced in the liver. Over time, a practical brain DHA deficit may emerge. DHA is also important in eye health being a principle constituent in the retinal and macular tissues.
