Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Canada, accounting for at least 36% of total mortality. Experts recommend that those who have cardiovascular disease or who are at high risk take omega-3 fatty acids. Flaxseed oil is high in alpha-linolenic acid, the primary omega-3 that can be converted into either DHA or EPA. Omega-3 from fish is a ready source of EPA and DHA oil.
Omega-3s provides some ability to lower cholesterol and have a beneficial anti-inflammatory effect on the lining of the coronary arteries. Inflammation is considered to be a central factor in heart disease risk. A chronic pro-inflammatory state in the coronary arteries contributes to atherosclerosis. Omega-3s also have a blood thinning effect, lowering the risk of inappropriate blood clotting. When essential omega-3 fatty acids are chronically lacking, a pro-thrombotic state can emerge, significantly raising the risk for heart attack and stroke.
This potent blend of omega-3s provides maximum support for cardiovascular health. Made with pharmaceutical grade MEG-3 fish oil and more, it provides 200 mg EPA/ 100 DHA and 265 ALA per softgel capsule.
