Opitmum Omega-3 Fish Oils from Arthro Vite Ltd; this high strength formula is a convenient source of essential fatty acids: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA 180mg) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA 120mg).
Our Optimum formula provides these essential nutrients in high quantities to help maintain healthy circulation and a healthy heart. EPA and DHA are found in mackerel, salmon, herring, sardines, sablefish (black cod), anchovies, albacore tuna, and wild game, Cod liver oil too contains large amounts of EPA and DHA.
Who is likely to be deficient? So-called “primitive” diets have much higher levels of EPA and DHA than modern diets. As a result, some researchers and doctors believe that most people who eat a typical western diet are likely to be consuming less-than-optimal amounts of EPA and DHA.
Omega 3 Fish Oils
Oil from fish contains eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA); both are omega-3 fatty acids.
Where is it found?
EPA and DHA are found in mackerel, salmon, herring, sardines, sablefish (black cod), anchovies, albacore tuna, and wild game. Cod liver oil contains large amounts of EPA and DHA. Fish oil supplements typically contain 18% EPA and 12% DHA, though more purified (i.e., higher in EPA and DHA) fish oil supplements are sometimes available. In addition, DHA is available in a supplement that does not contain significant amounts of EPA.
At least four studies have reported a reduced blood level of omega-3 fatty acids in people with depression.
People with rheumatoid arthritis have been found to have decreased levels of omega-3 fatty acids, such as are found in fish oil, in their joint fluid and blood.
