Omega-3 fatty acids are the “good fats” in the diet that help to balance out the “bad fats.” Eating a varied diet that includes foods that are naturally rich in Omega-3s such as fish, nuts, and seeds is part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) are two Omega-3 fatty acids that help support the health of your heart and cardiovascular system.** However, more than 90% of U.S. adults don’t get enough of EPA and DHA omega-3s from the diet to meet current recommendations for cardiovascular health.1,2
Puritan’s Pride® Kosher Omega-3 742 mg supplement provides a concentrated source of EPA and DHA to help maintain the health of your cardiovascular system and support healthy circulation.** These Omega-3 fatty acids also help maintain triglyceride levels already within a normal range.** Supportive but not conclusive research shows that the consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
The benefits of these “good fats” extend far beyond that of your cardiovascular system.** EPA and DHA also support the joints by helping to regulate the production of molecules that can affect joint health.** They can also be beneficial for people who spend a lot of time on the computer as well, as it helps with occasional dry eyes.** What’s more, EPA and DHA are beneficial for the occasional minor headache when used as part of a high Omega-3 and low Omega-6 diet, and helps support a good mood and healthy emotional balance, too.**
