Boost healthy aging by making dietary and lifestyle choices that support the health of your heart and your brain. Omega-3 500mg capsules from webber naturals® provides meaningful amounts of EPA and DHA, and the bonus size bottle means it's great value too! Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are found naturally together in cold water fish. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) helps lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels and has anti-inflammatory effects on the lining of the coronary arteries. Coronary inflammation is considered to be a central factor in the development of heart disease. One's risk for undesired blood clotting is also reduced by the beneficial blood thinning effects of EPA.
Omega-3 500mg capsules should also be used by anyone struggling with cognitive decline or looking to support cognitive health and optimum brain function. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is found in high concentrations in the brain and has been recognized as important for brain, visual, and nervous system health and development. Low levels of DHA may be a factor in cognitive decline, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
One of the most prominent studies showing the positive effects of dietary Omega-3 fatty acids on health is the five-year long JELIS (Japan Lipid Intervention Study, 2007), which involved nearly 5,000 doctors and more than 18,000 participants. Patients with a history of coronary artery disease were randomly assigned to receive either 1800 mg of EPA daily with statins or statins only. Major coronary events were reduced by 19% in the EPA group compared to only 10.7% in the control group.
Essential fatty acids are basic building blocks of neurons and are used as fuel substrates for brain metabolism. DHA is the predominant structural fatty acid in the cerebral cortex, in the membranes of synaptic communication centers, mitochondria and photoreceptors of the retina. Depression is associated with getting older and this in part may relate to a relative lack of DHA being produced in the liver. Daily DHA supplementation lowers the risk for age-related depression, contributes to eye health, and may support optimum brain function.
