Mega EPA/DHA by Life Extension: promotion of brain- and cardiovascular health, countering of inflammatory factors and more.
√ Promote cardiovascular and brain health
√ Help inhibit inflammatory factors
√ Help you cover your needs for critical EPA and DHA fatty acids.
You can use the EPA and DHA in Omega-3 to help satisfy the body’s need for these important fatty acids. EPA and DHA promote cardiovascular and brain health and help inhibit inflammatory factors.
Why Mega EPA/DHA Works:
Your body requires fatty acids to survive and is capable of making all of them except two: linoleic acid (LA), in the omega-6 family, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which is in the omega-3 family. These two fatty acids must be supplied through the diet and therefore they are considered to be essential fatty acids (EFAs).
Omega-3 oils contain highly beneficial eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are usually lacking in the typical Western diet. Additionally, EPA and DHA synthesis from ALA may be insufficient under certain conditions and for most people that consume Western-type diets. With Mega EPA/DHA, you can get your daily requirements for these critical fatty acids fulfilled. Mega EPA/DHA contains twice as much EPA and DHA as most conventional, commercially available fish oil capsules, which means that you will have a much higher potency of EPA/DHA in this product compared to other conventional products that also contain EPA and DHA. Furthermore, EPA and DHA can help diminish inflammation as well.
The Science Behind Mega EPA/DHA:
As mentioned, Omega-3 oils contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are usually lacking in the typical Western diet.
Studies report that the Mediterranean diet that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids such as that found in olive oil, and antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs, is linked to increased lifespan. Other studies report that omega-3’s are important for cardiovascular health.
Scientists and doctors report that a proper intake of omega-3 oils is vital to maintaining good health. This statement is based on many animal and people studies which have presented that omega-3 oils improve brain function and reduce inflammatory factors.
Studies have shown that EPA and DHA activate peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPARs) which in turn inhibit a protein complex known as nuclear factor-kappa b (NF-κB), which is the main transcription system that activates inflammation. Therefore, a proper intake of both EPA and DHA supports a healthy inflammatory response.
