45% EPA - 25% DHA
OMEGA 3 PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE FISH OIL 45% EPA - 25% DHA
and natural Vitamin E d-alpha-tocopherols (10 IU).
The best source of omega-3 fatty acid,
(EPA) and (DHA) is made from species such as cod, tuna, anchovy and
sardines. These oils are low in saturated fat and contain more Omega 3 than
many servings of the fish's meat..
Fish oil is very rich in docosahexaenoic
acid (DHA) and ei-cosapentaenoic acid (EPA). These essential fatty acids
are stored in the cell membranes of tissues, and have two primary functions.
First they are structural components of cell membranes where they ensure
fluidity, stability, and act as gatekeepers in the cells.
Secondly they ensure the production of
prostaglandins, hormone-like substances that regulate many of the body
functions, including heart rate, blood pressure, blood clotting, fertility
Prostaglandins also play a role in
regulating inflammation, which is a major characteristic of many immune
disorders. Prostaglandins both encourage the body to fight infection and
prevent the inflammatory response from getting out of control.
Nutrasource Diagnostics Inc., located in
the University of Guelph Research Park, has verified this source under
the strict International Fish Oil Standards Program and found the source to
contain low levels of heavy metals, PCB's, and Di-oxins, based on the
standards set by the Council For Responsible Nutrition and the World Health

Ref. and Educational Information
A lack of EFAs in the diet can lead to deficiency
side effects such as reproductive shut-down,
poor skin health, and liver or kidney disorders. Additionally, malnutrition
may develop as EFAs are necessary for the proper break down of the
fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Omega-3 fatty acids in particular are
absolutely vital for proper brain, eye and heart health.
Aside from maintaining good health, omega-3 fatty acids
in particular offer other health benefits. Omega-3’s have been found to have
an anti-inflammatory effect, and may help those suffering from inflammatory
diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and other autoimmune disorders.
Additionally, these fatty acids may help ward off mental disorders such as
depression by supporting the brain, which is largely composed of fatty
tissue. Studies are underway to investigate possible cancer fighting
properties of omega-3 fatty acids.
Typical American diets are usually lacking
in omega-3 fatty acids and over abundant in
omega-6 fatty acids (often found in packaged and processed foods). The
optimal ratio of these nutrients is 1 to 5, respectively.
Good sources of omega-6’s: vegetable oils such as corn,
sesame, soybean and sunflower, seeds, nuts,
grains and leafy green vegetables.
Good sources of omega-3’s: oils such as flaxseed, soybean,
walnut, or canola, and liquid or soft margarine made from these oils, and
coldwater fish (mackerel, salmon, tuna, etc.).
Announces Qualified Health Claims for Omega-3 Fatty Acids
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
announced the availability of a qualified health claim for reduced risk
of coronary heart disease (CHD) on conventional foods that contain
eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 fatty
Typically, EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty
acids are contained in oily fish, such as salmon, lake trout, tuna and
herring. These fatty acids are not essential to the diet; however,
scientific evidence indicates that these fatty acids may be beneficial in
"Coronary heart disease is a significant
health problem that causes 500,000 deaths annually in the United
States," said Dr. Lester M. Crawford, Acting FDA Commissioner. "This new
qualified health claim for omega-3 fatty acids should help consumers as they
work to improve their health by identifying foods that contain these
A qualified health claim on a
conventional food must be supported by credible scientific evidence.
Based on a systematic evaluation of the available scientific data, as
outlined in FDA's "Interim Procedures for Qualified Health Claims in the
Labeling of Conventional Human Food and Human Dietary Supplements", FDA is
announcing a qualified health claim for EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
While this research is not conclusive, the FDA intends to exercise its
enforcement discretion with respect to the following qualified health claim:
but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA
omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One
serving of [name of food] provides [x] grams of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty
acids. [See nutrition information for total fat, saturated fat and
In 2000, FDA announced a similar
qualified health claim for dietary supplements containing EPA and DHA
omega-3 fatty acids and the reduced risk of CHD. FDA recommends that
consumers not exceed more than a total of 3 grams per day of EPA and DHA
omega-3 fatty acids, with no more than 2 grams per day from a dietary
The EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acid
qualified health claim is the second qualified health claim that FDA has
announced for conventional food. For additional information about QHC visit:
