Vitacost Mega EFA® Omega-3 EPA & DHA Fish Oil Description
Premium-quality, purified fish oil softgels provide an optimum ratio of omega-3 EPA and DHA. Ideal way to increase omega-3 consumption without having to eat more fish!
What is Vitacost Mega EFA Omega-3 EPA & DHA?
Vitacost Mega EFA Omega-3 EPA & DHA is a premium-quality, purified fish oil supplement delivering high elemental levels of two of the most-studied omega-3 essential fatty acids: EPA and DHA.
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to the body and must be obtained through diet. Fatty fish, such as cod, tuna and salmon, are the best source, but they can also be found in some plant sources and in flaxseed, walnuts and soybeans. Most people do not eat enough of these foods, however, to obtain optimal amounts of omega-3 nutrients. In this case, taking a supplement such as Vitacost Mega EFA may be beneficial.
Unlike other low-cost, low-grade fish oil supplements, which may contain traces of dioxin, mercury, PCBs and other environmental contaminants, Vitacost Mega EFA has been molecularly distilled to guarantee the freshest, purest product. Mega EFA also contains a higher milligram-per-serving amount of omega-3 fatty acids than other brands, with 800 mg of EPA and 400 mg of DHA in each two-softgel serving.
How does Vitacost Mega EFA Omega-3 EPA & DHA support health?
EPA and DHA are well known for their cardioprotective properties, their ability to maintain healthy cognitive function, their potential to support healthy moods and their positive impact on joint comfort and flexibility*
Higher blood levels of omega-3 essential fatty acids including EPA and DHA are associated with a healthier mood*
