Description: The two types of fats in this formula are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These fats are extracted from cold-water fish like mackerel, anchovy and sardines.
EPA and DHA can be made in the body from linoleic acid. They are an integral component of every cell in the body, and are the essential ingredient that forms the barrier layer surrounding every cell allowing that cell to perform its job properly.
Omega 3 fatty acids help to block the binding of bad saturated fats to the lining of the arteries by decreasing the “stickiness” of the bad cholesterol LDL. They also help to disperse saturated fats and cholesterol that is bound into tissue.
EPA and DHA have been shown to help vasodilate or relax the blood vessels and drop blood pressure by decreasing the inflammation on the lining of the blood vessels.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids help to thin the blood and prevent blood clots by decreasing the production of fibrinogen ( a protein involved in the clotting system).
They also increase the production of protective good cholesterol HDL. This is one of the only known substances to do this.
Omega 3 fatty acids decrease the production of inflammatory prostaglandin’s, leukotrines and thromboxanes.
They have been clinically shown to reduce joint swelling, decrease morning stiffness in joints and greatly reduce pain.
Multiple Sclerosis is characterized by the break down and inflammation of the myelin sheath (protective coating surrounding the nerves).These essential fatty acids are the only known substance to decrease further break down and repair damaged myelin cells.
They are helpful in decreasing pain, numbness, and tingling in nerves (also seen in diabetics or any nerve damage).
