About EPA/DHA essentials™:
*This ultra-pure fish oil concentrate offers nutritional support to the cardiovascular system and the joints. EPA/DHA essentials™ is standardized to contain a 3:2 ratio of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) to DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA and DHA from fish oil promote cardiovascular health by supporting healthy triglyceride and VLDL cholesterol levels, maintaining blood flow, and reducing platelet aggregation. Fish oil is also important for optimal joint function. It regulates the production of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, which are not conducive to connective tissue health.
Consumption of omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. FDA evaluated the data and determined that, although there is scientific evidence supporting the claim, the evidence is not conclusive.
EPA/DHA essentials is a pure fish oil concentrate, helpful for safely maintaining cardiovascular and joint health. Pure Encapsulations EPA/DHA essentials is a molecularly distilled, microfiltered fish oil. It has been tested for contaminants including heavy metals, dioxans and furans, PCBs, peroxides and anisidine. The percentage of arachidonic acid per capsule is approximately 2%. The amount of cholesterol per capsule is 1 milligram.
