What Is EPA Plus?
EPA Plus is a natural marine-lipid concentrate that contains the valuable Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA (Eicosapentaenoic) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid). During processing, care has been taken to ensure that the concentration of the Omega-3 fatty acids does not contain large amounts of vitamin A and D, which may be found in many other equivalent fish liver and body oils. Therefore, you can receive the optimal health benefits from Omega-3 without worrying about consuming too much vitamin A or D.
Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) is a member of the Omega-3 fatty acid family. EPA is required for the production of a special group of substances in the body called prostaglandins, which control blood clotting and other arterial functions. EPA also provides a natural approach to lower serum triglycerides. Of almost equal importance, but not as widely researched, is Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), a major component of the human brain tissues and the retinal tissues of the eyes. It also serves the other important function of the transmission of nerve impulses in the nervous system. EPA PLUS supplies these important fatty acids in the highest concentrations found and, in addition, it does not contain potentially harmful levels of Vitamins A and D, such as that found in equivalent amounts of many other fish liver and fish body oils. Doctors have been saying for years that large amounts of fat in the diet can lead to heart disease and other disorders.
Why Use EPA Plus ?
For years scientists have been puzzled over how Eskimos, who eat so much fat, could have such healthy cardiovascular systems. After years of study, many scientists have concluded that their health is due to the high amount of Omega- 3 fatty acids contained in the fish and other seafood that make up a majority of their diet In all likelihood, you have probably been hearing quite a bit about the health benefits of Omega-3.
EPA also plays a key role in neurological functions, as well. Societies with diets rich in these oils, from fish, are known to have a greatly reduced incidence of heart and circulatory disease. Many individuals are currently supplementing with the high quality EPA and DHA that is found in EPA PLUS helping them to maintain healthy lipid levels.
In order for your cells to maintain their thin, fatty, outer membrane, which is needed to transport nutrients in and out of the cell and produce energy, they need essential fatty acids (Omega-3). These Omega-3 fatty acids support your heart and circulatory system, brain and central nervous system, your eyes and good vision, as well as promote emotional well being and positive mental outlook. They also help maintain already healthy cholesterol levels.
While nuts, seeds, whole grains and dark leafy greens are all sources of Omega-3, the best sources are from seafood such as tuna, shrimp, salmon, cod, clams, crab, flounder, sole, halibut and catfish. Unfortunately, many of us do not consume sufficient amounts of Omega-3-rich foods. EPA Plus provides you with an easy, no-hassle way to supplement your diet to ensure that you are obtaining sufficient amounts of this valuable nutrient.
