Fish oil is healthy because it contains two long-chain fatty acids - eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - that are mainly found in fish. These two fatty acids have a number of important biological functions in the cell membrane, the immune system and the brain. In addition, fish oil lowers blood pressure and maintains our vision.
OUR FISH OIL
To fully benefit from the great properties of fish oil, a total intake of approximately 2000mg of the fatty acids EPA and DHA should be obtained. Therefore, we recommend taking three of our capsules a day, which amounts to a total intake of 2250mg. In order to obtain the same amount from other manufacturers, you would in some cases have to take up to 15 capsules a day to reach our recommended daily dose.
Our fish oil does not contain omega 6 and 9, since these can be harmful in large quantities and we usually get more than enough of these fatty acids in our diet. Content per daily dose (3 capsules): 3000mg Fish Oil, 1500mg EPA, 750mg DHA.
