The Natural Health Practice Omega 3 Support contains ultra-pure wild deep sea fish oil which is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids with high levels of EPA and DHA. The ongoing AREDS 2 clinical trial (Age-Related Eye Disorder Study) is studying whether omega 3 fats, EPA and DHA, will slow disease progression for those with moderate macular degeneration. Levels of EPA (650mg) and DHA (350mg) are currently being examined for comprehensive protection for macular health.
Essential fatty acids are a vital component of every human cell. The body needs essential fatty acids to balance hormones, insulate nerve cells, keep the skin and arteries supple, and are also used to supply the body with energy. The body cannot manufacture essential fatty acids and they must be consumed either through dietary intake or through supplements. The Department of Health recommends that we should all double our intake of omega 3's by eating oily fish (such as salmon) two to three times a week. But more and more research indicates that it is wise to supplement fatty acids and not to rely just on dietary intake.
