Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of essential fat which cannot be produce in the human body and must be obtained through foods or supplements (such as this one; omega 3 soft gels). We carry this supplement in 1000mg!
It is thought that omega-3 fatty acids help to reduce the risk of heart disease and promote healthy skin. They may also be used along with diet and exercise to help lower levels of triglyceride while increasing levels of “good” cholesterol. Other studies have shown this product may help treat high blood pressure and rheumatoid arthritis. Other benefits of this supplement include reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, reduced risk of death if you have cardiovascular disease, reduced risk of sudden cardiac death caused by an abnormal heart rhythm, reduced risk of blood clots because omega-3 fatty acids help prevent blood platelets from clumping together, keeping the lining of the arteries smooth and free of damage that can lead to thick, hard arteries (this helps keep plaque from forming in the arteries) while also lowering triglyceride levels by slowing the rate they form in the liver. High levels of triglycerides in the blood increase the risk of heart disease.
