Uses For EPA/DHA fish oil
Promotes Heart Health: EPA and DHA from fish oil
encourage cardiovascular health by supporting
triglyceride and lipid metabolism, maintaining healthy
blood flow and promoting healthy platelet function. A
randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study
involving 223 individuals, indicated that fish oil
supplementation promotes arterial function. In addition,
studies indicate these oils help maintain blood vessel
integrity. One study also suggests EPA may moderate
protein kinase C, supporting arterial smooth muscle cells.*
Supports Joint Health: Fish oil is also important for
optimal joint function. It moderates prostaglandin and
leukotriene production, supporting healthy connective
tissue. It also plays a role in moderating neutrophil
activity, supporting joint comfort. A double blind, placebo
controlled, prospective study involving 66 subjects
revealed fish oils modulates immune mediator activity as
well as provides support for joint flexibility.*
