If you’ve done some research into fish oils and omega 3s, you’ve probably run across the terms EPA and DHA. These are the specific omega-3 fatty acids that offer the heart, brain, eye, nervous system, and digestive health benefits fish oils are so celebrated for.
However, it is EPA specifically that has researchers so excited about the power of omega-3s to support heart health. A recent clinical study found that an intake of 2,000 mg of EPA daily helped to lower triglycerides, or harmful fats in the bloodstream, by 19.7% in just 12 weeks, and without raising harmful LDL cholesterol. ǂ1 High triglycerides are a major heart health risk marker, so news that you can help control them with heart-healthy EPA is big news indeed!
An EPA-Only Fish Oil
Almost all fish oil blends contain both EPA and DHA omega-3s. While both are very beneficial, it is recommended you take an EPA-only fish oil if you’re looking to focus on heart health and control your triglyceride levels.
To get the optimum 2,000 mg of daily EPA that helps lower triglycerides, you’d have to take as many as 11 standard DHA/EPA fish oil supplements, and you’d be getting a lot of DHA as well. An EPA-only fish oil like Norwegian Gold EPA 1000 Omega provides an exceptionally high concentration of 1,000 mg EPA per softgel—and only EPA—so you get the targeted heart health benefits of this omega 3 type. ǂ
Norwegian Gold EPA 1000 is the highest-potency EPA-only fish oil to be offered in health food stores, and now you can get all the benefits of this pure fish oil right here:
- Highest heart-healthy EPA potency at 1,000 mg per softgel
- Enteric coated for no fishy burping and enhanced absorption
- Awarded the top 5-star IFOS purity rating against heavy metals, PCBs, and contaminants
- PLUS 1,000 IU of added vitamin D3 to support immunity! ǂ
