"Omega-3 fatty acids are essential cornerstones of human nutrition. They are deemed “essential” because we need them to support a number of key body functions, from cardiovascular health to proper blood flow and brain development. We're unable to produce them on our own, however, and can only consume them through diet or supplementation.
I recommend taking these Superior Omega-3 supplements to every one of my patients - it's an incredible high-concentration fish oil sourced from the waters off the Chilean coast. As the world's least industrialized coastline, these cold, fresh waters provide the cleanest, most sustainable source of fish in the world. Many Omega-3 supplements contain mercury, which can be very detrimental to your health. That's why we purify, vacuum-distill and independently test this exclusive fish oil to ensure that heavy metals, pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are removed to undetectable levels. We pack these Omega-3 fatty acids into vitamin No. 4 to deliver a potent supplement that will help you feel your best."

This product provides 820 mg of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) per soft gel as natural triglycerides, the preferred form with superior absorption.With over 10,000 published studies in the last three decades, EPA and DHA from fish oil are among the most researched natural ingredients available and have a long history of safety and efficacy. Vitamin E (as mixed tocopherols) and rosemary extract are used to ensure maximum purity and freshness.
In nature, Omega-3s occur as alpha linolenic acid (ALA), found mostly in plants, and as long-chain EPA and DHA, which primarily originate from cold-water fish. The body is able to slowly convert the shorter chain ALA to the more active long-chain, EPA and DHA. However, many people lack the enzymes delta-5 and delta-6 desaturase necessary to make the conversion, making a higher dietary intake of EPA and DHA necessary. Major changes in modern diet over the last century have also led to a decrease in the general consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids. Since Omega-3 is known to benefit cardiovascular health, support healthy brain function and cognition, and has also been proven to maintain a healthy inflammatory response, achieving the proper balance of Omega-3s has become an important health strategy. The American Heart Association recommends taking up to 4 g of Omega-3 fatty acids per day.
