Omega-3 continues to grow in scientific credibility as a key component of health. Established and emerging evidence supports its continued use, providing practitioners with a leading edge as well as safe and effective means to enhance their clinical practice for optimum results.

HEART: Clinical studies conclude that by maintaining the correct amount of Omega-3 (DHA & EPA from fish oil ) in your body you are 32% less likely to develop heart disease*, and you are 70% less likely to die from a heart attack**.
BRAIN: Clinical research continues to document that, from the womb, and throughout one’s lifecycle, the proper levels of Omega-3 provide great benefits to brain function and eyes, and assist in the prevention of illnesses like Alzheimer’s disease and depression.
CANCER: It has been clinically proven that those suffering from cancer are more susceptible to heart disease, weakened immune response, and other related inflammatory conditions. These conditions are positively impacted by Omega-3 EPA and DHA.
Immune system and inflammatory response helps the body defend and heal itself. But the immune system’s response must be balanced, managing the inflammatory response to prevent injury normal and otherwise healthy tissue. Omega-3 EPA and DHA from fish and fish oils can help.
