Fish Oil DS
NUMEROUS clinical studies demonstrate how the omega-3 fatty acids found in
fish oil supplements can help in a variety of health conditions including
lowering of blood pressure and triglyceride levels.
People who have had a heart attack and subsequently treated with omega-3
have a lower risk of having further heart attacks.
There is also good evidence that omega-3 may play a role in relieving
rheumatoid arthritis, depression, psoriasis and inflammatory bowel diseases.
Millions of people worldwide have taken fish oil supplements and obtained
measurable, laboratory verified results that changed their health for the
How much fish oil should you take for beneficial effect ?
The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that people with high
triglycerides take a supplement with 2,000 to 4,000 mg of EPA and DHA
omega-3 fatty acids. For people with coronary heart disease, AHA recommends
1,000 mg of EPA and DHA daily.
For healthy adults with no history of coronary heart disease, AHA recommends
eating fish at least twice a week, which is equivalent to approximately 500
mg of EPA and DHA daily.
Look out for the following when buying fish oil :-
Choose fish oil
with high strength or select one with double the strength of EPA + DHA. For
instance, by taking a double-strength (DS) fish oil that contains 600 mg of
EPA + DHA, you will only need to take half as many capsules per day compared
to a standard formulation containing 300 mg of EPA + DHA.
You should also remember that the more EPA + DHA there are in each capsule,
the less room there is for the "other oils" -- the remaining 700 mg that
makes up a 1,000 mg softgel (for a standard fish oil containing 300 mg EPA +
DHA). The lower the concentration of the "other oils", the lower the chances
of side effects such as stomach problems, fishy burps or fishy-smelling
To ensure safety
and effectiveness, choose a brand that has gone through purification through
molecular distillation. This is the only process that can effectively remove
heavy metals and other harmful toxins.
Most consumers do not know that fish oil is actually available in two forms –
triglycerides (TG) and ethyl ester (EE). Studies now confirm that fish oil
in TG form has 70% higher absorption over EE form. Therefore, for superior
absorption and efficacy, choose a fish oil that states "triglycerides" on
Nutriforte Fish Oil DS, a fish oil supplement (triglyceride form) fully
imported from New Zealand, contains double the Omega-3s – 600 mg of highly
purified EPA + DHA, which is twice the amount found in standard fish oils.
