Cold-ocean fish oil supplements have become popular as a source of omega-3 oils due to an explosion of new research that shows consuming enough of these healthy fats is essential to your cardiovascular system, nervous system, and joints. Doctors commonly recommend an omega-3 supplement to patients with a history of heart disease because it can reduce blood pressure, triglyceride levels, cholesterol levels, platelet aggregation, arrhythmia, and arterial plaque formation.
Omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) are needed to build and repair cells. They are called “essential” because it is necessary to consume them in your diet since they are critical to health, but cannot be produced by the body.
Most people in North America eat too much of the omega-6 EFAs found in meats and most vegetable oils and have a relative deficiency of the omega-3 EFAs. Such an imbalance is associated with an increased risk for heart disease, cognitive and mood disorders, arthritis, and many other diseases. Daily consumption of omega-3 EFAs is essential for maintaining optimal health.
Particularly important are two types of omega-3 fatty acids called EPA and DHA. These nutrients are found in cold ocean fish. However, since nearly all fish contain trace amounts of mercury, taking a purified, pharmaceutical-grade fish oil supplement offers the best assurance that you are meeting your requirements of EPA and DHA without exposure to toxins.
Maximum Triple Strength RxOmega-3 offers a high potency of omega-3 EFAs in a convenient one-a-day softgel that provides EPA and DHA in the optimum ratio of 2:1. An omega-3 supplement is as important as a good multivitamin for preventing disease and maintaining optimal health, and should be part of one’s daily routine.
Studies have shown that taking a quality omega-3 supplement can produce a 62% reduction in death due to cardiovascular disease, a 47% reduction in the risk of developing dementia, and, for people with inflammatory joint ailments, it can reduce intensity of joint pain and stiffness, and reduce the use of NSAID drugs.
Suggested Use: Provides 900 mg omega-3 EFAs – the dosage most doctors recommend, in a convenient one-a-day softgel.
Directions (Adults): Take 1 softgel daily or as directed by a health care practitioner.
Cautions: Fish oil supplements can be consumed in large amounts, up to 15-20 g per day, with no serious side effects. • Pregnancy and lactation: Fish oil that is free from mercury and other contaminants is considered safe during pregnancy and lactation • Children: Not suitable for children at this dose; Natural Factors Learning Factors School-Aid is recommended for children • Drug interactions: Since EFAs may increase the blood-thinning and antiplatelet-aggregating effects of certain medications, individuals on blood thinners, anticoagulants, or antithrombotic drugs should consult their health care practitioner prior to use.
Contra-Indications: Contraindications: Due to the blood-thinning effects of EFAs, individuals undergoing surgery should discontinue fish oil supplementation one week before surgery, and resume upon the recommendation of their health care practitioner; side effects, such as mild stomach upset, burping, flatulence, soft stools, and diarrhea are rare with enteric-coated fish oils, but occur more often at higher doses, and generally lessen with continued use; to minimize the possibility of such side effects, fish oil softgels should be taken with food
