  • Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish oil, and fish oil supplements are a convenient way to take advantage of their benefits. Why Omega-3s? We need them for heart health and healthy growth. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil include eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Try saying that three times fast.


    Fish naturally found in cold-water and certain shellfish are good sources of Omega-3 EPA and DHA. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. In addition, fish oil can help maintain healthy triglyceride levels already in normal range and support brain and eye health through the life cycle. For heart health in healthy adults, some experts recommend about 500mg of omega-3 fatty acids daily, containing both EPA and DHA.
