Why Choose Heart Health Omega Essential Omega Fish Oil With Vitamin E?
Heart Health Essential Omega III with Vitamin E is a superior product due to a number of factors. The best fish are used in producing a clean and safe product that is rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Heart Health Essential Omega III comes from small fish where other competitive products use large fish that are more likely to accumulate toxins. Heart Health Essential Omega III provides a high quality, high purity product with significant percentages of the health promoting EPA and DHA.
The fish oil in Heart Health Essential Omega III with Vitamin E comes from sardines and anchovies that have a short lifecycle, making them an ideal source of fish oil because they are less prone to accumulating environmental toxins that can be found in larger, longer-lived fish. Contaminants are generally extremely low in sardines and anchovies even before they go through an intense purification process. Every batch of fish oil is tested prior to processing by our manufacturer and must pass more than 200 quality checks during the production process.
In an article published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the effects of Omega-3 Fish oil supplementation were shown to be beneficial for healthy cognitive and cardiac functioning. The study shows that supplementing with fish oil daily can rapidly raise the levels of EPA and DHA in cardiac tissue. This is important because both EPA and DHA have been shown to help maintain normal heart function. This study also showed an inverse relationship between EPA/DHA and arachidonic acid (AA), an omega-6 fatty acid. As EPA and DHA increased in atrial (heart tissue) phospholipids, AA decreased.1
Heart Health Essential Omega III Fish Oil with Vitamin E provides 900mg of EPA† (eicosapentaenoic acid) and 600mg of DHA† (docosahexaenoic acid) which studies have shown to be the most effective in promoting overall cardiovascular health.
An unhealthy diet of processed, high-calorie, high-fat foods, pollution, smoking and sedentary lifestyles all contribute to poor heart health. Not smoking, maintaining a healthy weight, eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains, exercising regularly and taking the right supplements can all contribute to promoting good cardiovascular health.

Fish Body Oils [EPA† 900 mg and DHA† 600 mg]
Fish oils or marine oils, are lipids (fats) found in fish, particularly cold water fish like herring, kipper, mackerel, menhaden, pilchard, salmon, sardine, trout, and phytoplankton. The sources of fish oil in Heart Health Essential Omega III Fish Oil are sardines and anchovies, tested by the manufacturer and an independant testing company to be virtually free of mercury lead, PCB and other heavy metals. Fish oils are rich sources of omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexanenoic acid) are the two most studied fish oils. DHA is a necessary component of the phospholipids in human cellular membranes, especially those found in the brain and retina.
Omega-3 fatty acids compete metabolically with omega-6 fatty acids, found in higher amounts in typical western diets. Omega-6 fatty acids may inhibit the incorporation of omega-3 fatty acids into tissue lipids. Omega-3 fatty acids may inhibit the conversion of many omega-6 fatty acids into arachidonic acid. Consumption of omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, corresponds with an increase of these fatty acids in cell membranes and circulatory lipids along with a simulataneous reduction in omega-6 fatty acids.
Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol)
The most valuable sources of dietary vitamin E include vegetable oils, margarine, nuts, seeds, avocados and wheat germ. Safflower oil contains large amounts of vitamin E (about two thirds of the RDA in ¼ cup) and there are trace amounts in corn oil and soybean oil. Vitamin E is actually a family of related compounds called tocopherols and tocotrienols. For those individuals watching their dietary fat consumption, vitamin E intake is likely to be low, due to a reduced intake of foods with high fat content. The main benefit of Vitamin E comes from its antioxidant activity.
