The most important nutrients in fish oils are the essential omega-3 fatty acids—eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). They are “essential” because without them, our brains and bodies cannot perform many essential functions.
Our new, concentrated Hardy Nutritionals® Essential Omegas formula delivers more EPA and DHA than ever so you can take fewer capsules and get even more of the essential nutrients your body needs!
Compared with our old formula, our improved Essential Omegas offers:
- 2 times the EPA per capsule.
- 2.5 times the DHA per capsule.
- Nearly 60% more essential omegas in each bottle, even though there are fewer capsules (120 instead of 180).
Our new Essential Omegas delivers EPA and DHA in a concentrated form—purified through a comprehensive distillation process. The end result is that you’ll get more essential omegas and less of the non-essential fats.
This unique distillation process gives you substantial added value compared with our old formula:
- You’ll get nearly 90% fewer non-essential fats per capsule.
- The daily dose of 4 capsules gives you nearly 60% more EPA and DHA than the old dose of 6 capsules.
- PCB (Polychlorinated biphenyl) and heavy metal (lead and mercury) levels are guaranteed to be below the strict Proposition 65 limits.
With these improvements in concentration and purity, our new Essential Omegas provides excellent value compared to grocery store omega-3 supplements.
More about Essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Most of the fat we consume is used for energy or stored in fat tissues. In contrast, EPA and DHA are “healthy” polyunsaturated fats that have unique biological functions.
Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA)
Our bodies use EPA to make prostaglandins, which regulate many body functions. Here are a few examples of how prostaglandins help you to be healthy:
- Control cell growth.
- Improve kidney function.
- Control hormone balance.
- Regulate calcium movement.
- Regulate blood pressure and clotting.
- Improve immune response by regulating fevers.
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)
DHA is the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain and retina, comprising 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids in the brain and 60% in the retina. In fact, DHA makes up half of the total weight of neuron cell membranes throughout the body. DHA helps to:
- Regulate heartbeat.
- Regulate brain signals.
- Improve depressed mood.
- Improve cognitive function.
- Enhance infant and child development.
- Regulate cellular processes such as insulin release.
