Thompson's Fish Oil (Omega-3) 1000mg may help assist with the following:
· Improvement of general well-being
· Maintenance of healthy circulation
· Joint mobility
· Healthy skin
· DHA is also essential for vision and brain development in infants
Fish Oil is a rich source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids which help to balance the Omega 6 Fatty Acids, which are found mostly in vegetable oils and processed foods. When these two groups of fatty acids are out of balance, the body releases chemicals that promote inflammation. The ideal ratio is around 3:1 Omega 6: Omega 3 Fatty Acids. In the Western diet most people have a ratio of 20:1. This is likely to have a pro-inflammatory effect contributing to many degenerative diseases.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) recommends the following intakes of Omega 3 fatty acids (EPA+DHA) for various people:
· Healthy adults - 650mg/day (= 2 caps of Fish Oil)
· Existing cardiovascular problems - 900mg/day (=3 caps of Fish Oil)
· Pregnant and lactating women - 300mg of DHA daily (=3 caps of Fish Oil)
Each capsule contains: Fish oil – natural 1g Equivalent Omega 3 marine triglycerides 300mg Equivalent eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) 180mg Equivalent docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) 120mg Free from corn, dairy, egg, gluten, lactose, nuts, starch, sugar, wheat, yeast, artificial colouring or artificial flavouring. Children and Adults : Take 1-3 capsules daily (with food) or as professionally prescribed. Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet. Do not take more than the label dosage (3000mg) without consulting with a natural health practitioner. Use of high dose fish oil supplements should be stopped at least two weeks prior to surgery. Concomitant use of fish oil supplements and warfarin or other medications (including aspirin) that affect blood clotting may lead to an increased risk of bleeding.
