Omega-3 from Cold-Water Fish

The EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) in Evergreenís Concentrated Omega-3 are obtained from cold-water fish: anchovies, sardines and mackerel. These long-chain omega-3 fatty acids are more practical than plant-derived short-chain omega-3s such as ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) because you need to consume large amounts of ALA and expend more physiological energy to convert ALA into EPA and DHA. Also, some people (especially those whose ancestors are from northern latitudes) are unable to make that conversion. So supplementation with fish oil is a good way to obtain these vital fatty acids.

EPA/DHA have anti-inflammatory activity, balancing pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids that are abundant in the modern diet. Inflammation is now believed to be a causative factor for chronic disease, so reducing systemic inflammation is important in promoting healing and healthy aging. Because EPA is used by our bodies to make anti-inflammatory hormones (PG3 prostaglandins and leukotrienes) it can help to reduce the risk of strokes, heart attacks, pulmonary embolism and other dangerous events. Research has shown benefits for autoimmune diseases and asthma as well.

EPA and DHA also have important cardiovascular benefits, contributing to healthy triglyceride and cholesterol levels, improving blood vessel function, reducing platelet aggregation and helping to keep the arteries clear of fibrinogen and other substances that promote atherosclerosis. In addition, EPA also plays a role in healthy blood pressure levels.

EPA and DHA have a positive effect on brain function as well. DHA is one of the most abundant fatty acids in brain tissue and it contributes to a positive mood and improved cognitive function. Omega-3s may be helpful for people with depression, ADHD and dementia.

Evergreenís Concentrated Omega-3 with natural orange oil is a double-strength EPA/DHA formula yielding 1,200 mg of fish oil per softgel. It is sourced from fresh cold-water fish, is molecularly distilled and tested for pesticides, PCBs and heavy metals.
