Full Description

Opti-EPA™ 500 is concentrated marine fish oil, providing eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 300 mg) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 200 mg).

Usage Directions

One to three softgels daily as a dietary supplement‚ or as directed by a physician. Take with food.

In modern diets, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is far unbalanced compared to what humans have evolved with. This distortion has caused an enormous increase in health complications as we move away from a balanced 1:1 proportion and nearer towards almost 20 - 25:1. Health professionals advise that for optimal nutritional balance our diet should contain between 4 : 1 and 10 : 1 of these beneficial fats.

An optimal dietary balance of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids is essential for proper immune system performance. Omega-6 linoleic acid (18:2) forms the precursors to proinflammatory prostaglandins E2 as well as thromboxane A2, both linked with platelet aggregation. Conversely, EPA and DHA from sources like fish oil provide anti-inflammation benefits by creating a natural counterbalance in terms of forming additional prostaglandin types such as E1 or E3 while simultaneously reducing levels of those that promote inflammation.

To promote a healthy cholesterol metabolism, diet should include adequate levels of EPA, DHA and other omega-3 fatty acids. These nutrients are essential in regulating normal blood lipoprotein which is crucial for overall wellbeing.

Opti-EPA™ provides an easy alternative for those looking to supplement their diet with increased amounts of healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Unlike marine fish oils, it offers a convenient and reliable way to gain access to EPA and DHA essential nutrients.
