UPC Code: 883196200726
Pharmax's Finest Pure Fish Oil contains high concentrations of EPA and DHA, but has virtually no fish oil odor or taste.
What is Fish Oil?
Fish oil, extracted from the tissues of certain fish, contains the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Both types of omega-3 fatty acids are precursors of eicosanoids (specific type of molecule), which have been shown to reduce inflammation in the body, along with many other health benefits.
Fish don't actually produce omega-3 fatty acids, but they obtain them from eating microalgae (or prey fish that have eaten microalgae). The fatty acids are then stored within the fish's body. These fatty acids are thought to be beneficial for treating certain medical conditions, such as hypertriglyceridemia, heart disease, anxiety and depression. They are also being studied for a potential preventative role in cancer and macular degeneration.
The Pharmax Advantage
Many people are aware of the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, but they simply don't like the taste of fish. In some supplements, you may even find a fishy odor or aftertaste. But, Pure Fish Oil by Pharmax was specifically designed to be odorless and without that undesirable fishy aftertaste.
Benefits of Supplementing with EPA and DHA from Fish Oil
The body needs a good balance of essential fatty acids to operate at peak performance. In the standard American diet, people get an overabundance of omega-6 fatty acids, which are essential to the body's inflammatory response; but they can cause excess inflammation if taken without an adequate balance of omega-3 fatty acids, such as EPA and DHA. Much research has been done on the topic, and researchers are currently suggesting an optimal balance of 1:1, meaning that for every omega-3 fatty acid you consume, you must consume one omega-6 fatty acid. According to the available research, a healthy range can even go up to 4 omega-6 fatty acids for every omega-3. Unfortunately, the standard diet consists of anywhere between 10 and 20 omega-6 fatty acids for every omega-3. This unbalanced intake can cause unnecessary inflammation in the body, which can lead to various diseases, including heart disease.
Omega-6 fatty acids are highly concentrated in lunch meats, soy foods, nuts and seeds and vegetable oils. If your diet is rich in these foods in addition to grains, but poor in fish, sea vegetables and flax seeds, you likely have an imbalance of fatty acids. Fish oil supplementation, including DHA and EPA, such as that found in this Finest Pure Fish Oil product, can help reduce inflammation and help return your body's fatty acid ratio to normal.
While you're taking this Finest Pure Fish Oil by Pharmax, you may want to aid efforts by changing the omega balance in your diet. To do this, eat the omega-3-rich foods listed above and avoid omega-6-rich foods, such as avocados, whole grains, nuts, seeds, vegetable oils and anything processed.
