EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and DPA (docosapentaenoic acid) comprise the unique feature of marine oils. These three PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acids) are formed in unicellular phytoplankton and multicellular sea algae which pass through the food web and become incorporated in fish and higher marine species. As well, specialized processing modification ensures Triple Omega 3 retains a higher content of DPA
Cold Water Fish Contain Better Quality Omega 3: The high content of Omega 3 fatty acids marine lipids in cold water fishes is a consequence of freezing North Atlantic water temperature adaptations, where Omega 3 PUFA's remain liquid as opposed to oxidation processes which can occur in warmer waters, thereby diminishing the Omega 3 qualities.
Heart Functions: EPA, DPA, and DHA in higher marine oils are located in the terminal position of triglyceride molecules, but in fish oils they are primarily present in the middle position of triglycerides. This difference in the location of the Omega 3's is a major reason for the superior effect of these marine oils, over fish oils alone, in disease prevention and potential health benefits.
Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids decrease not only plasma lipids by reducing synthesis of fatty acids, they also have a direct effect on the heart muscle itself ! Omega 3 DPA, DHA and EPA increase blood flow, decrease heart arrhythmia's, improve arterial capability, decrease infarct sizes and improve cellular processes that can compromise heart function. Marine oils can also slow arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), through their effects on platelet function, and inflammatory responses.
Pregnancy Effects: Long-chain Omega 3 fatty acids have a marked effect on tissue development as well. Recent studies have proven that DHA supplementation during pregnancy and lactation is beneficial for providing fetal DHA requirements, for health brain formation in developing fetuses.
Triple Omega 3 marine oil capsules are rich in Omega 3 long chain fatty acid, poly-unsaturated fatty acid (DHA, DPA, EPA), Squalene and Vitamin E. Triple Omega 3 is an excellent nutritional supplement that will contribute to overall physical and mental health.
Recommended Dosage: Adults and children, take two to eight capsules per day, or as directed by a physician.
