Friend of the Sea® Sustainable Fish Oil
The readily absorbed omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are found in the retina, the adrenal glands, the testes and especially brain and nerve cells. DHA is actually one of the most abundant fatty acids in the brain and contributes to improved cognitive function and a positive mood. EPA and DHA help clear the arteries of fibrinogen and other substances that promote atherosclerosis and they reduce platelet aggregation and improve blood vessel function. EPA can help maintain healthy triglyceride, cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
In addition, these fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and help balance pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids that are abundant in the modern diet. Inflammation is believed to be a contributing factor to most chronic diseases, so reducing systemic inflammation is important. We make the anti-inflammatory hormones PG3 prostaglandins and leukotrienes from EPA, which may help decrease the risk of stroke, heart attack, pulmonary embolism and other dangerous inflammation-driven conditions. Research indicates benefits for autoimmune diseases and asthma, too.
