Omega-3 Double Strength™
A concentrated fish oil formula rich in essential EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids to help reduce inflammation and assist with joint and mobility support.
Omega-3 Double Strength™ is rich in two essential omega-3 fats, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are important for general health, a healthy cardiovascular system, cognitive function and eye health. They also help reduce inflammation. The EPA and DHA types of omega-3s, which are concentrated and purified from fish oil, are more effective than the plant derived alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) type of omega-3.

Fish oils contain long chain polyunsaturated fats called omega-3 fatty acids. They are especially high in the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA). EPA and DHA have been shown to be beneficial in supporting health, brain and eye function.
Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils have anti-inflammatory and antithrombotic effects. This has been attributed to omega-3 fatty acids competing with arachidonic acid in the cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways. Omega-3 fatty acids seem to suppress COX-2 expression and the inflammatory cytokines.
Take 2 softgel capsules once daily, with or shortly after your main meal.
