What is Omega-3?
Omega-3s refer to healthy unsaturated fatty acids naturally occurring in marine life, nuts, and some other foods. Since the 1930s these fats, specifically the DHA and EPA found in marine life, have been considered an essential supplement for vibrant cardiovascular health.
Our ancestors ate a high omega-3 diet of wild game, leafy greens, nuts and especially fish. Unfortunately modern food manufacturers have squeezed the omega-3s out of our diet and replaced them with harmful saturated and trans fats. And in recent decades mercury and other pollutants now found in many wild fish are causing genuine health concerns.
Supplementing a nutritious diet with purified omega-3s from marine life helps to reduce triglycerides, and directly correlates with lower risk for heart disease and sudden cardiac death. All in all there is an astounding array of physical, mental and emotional benefits conferred by Omega-3 supplementation.
