  • EPA/DHA Essentials by Pure Encapsulations provides pure fish oil concentrate that has been microfiltered to support joint and cardiovascular health.

    How the Body Can Benefit From EPA/DHA Fish Oil

    EPA/DHA fish oil has been shown to promote heart healthy by supporting the metabolism of triglycerides and lipids‚ promoting healthy platelet function and maintaining healthy blood flow. One randomized‚ double-blind placebo controlled study that involved 223 individuals indicated that supplementing with fish oil can help maintain the integrity of blood vessels. Another study also shows that EPA might work to moderate protein kinase C‚ which would help support arterial smooth muscle cels.

    EPA DHA Fish Oil has also been shown in studies to support the health of your joints. In fact‚ many researchers believe that it is an essential part of your diet‚ if you want to maintain optimal joint function. EPA DHA moderates prostaglandin and leukotriene production‚ which helps to support healthy connective tissue. EPA DHA is also invlived in moderating neutrophil activity‚ which supports the comfort of joints. In one double-blind placebo controlled study‚ EPA DHA fish oil was shown to modulate immune mediator activity in addition to providing support for joint flexibility. This study involved 66 participants.

    Where Does EPA DHA Essentials Come From?

    Pure Encapsulations gets its EPA/DHA mostly from sardines and anchovies that were sourced off the coast of Norway or Chile. They have been tested to ensure that they don’t contain contaminants‚ such as heavy metals‚ furans‚ PCBs‚ anisidine or peroxides. Pure Encapsulations also distills and microfilters its fish oil to ensure optimal quality.

    Who Should Take EPA DHA Essentials?

    Researchers have noted that the appropriate balance of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is 1:1; however‚ in the standard American diet‚ the balance is closer to 25:1‚ with many more omega-6 fatty acids being consumed. Omega-6 fatty acids are essential‚ but they can cause unwanted inflammation when consumed in excess. Omega-3 fatty acids work to counteract the inflammatory effects of omega-6s in the diet. EPA and DHA are both types of omega-3 fatty acids. So‚ anyone who is eating or has eaten the standard American diet (or another diet rich in omega-6 fatty acids) can benefit from taking EPA DHA Essentials. Also‚ as noted above‚ EPA and DHA may have positive effects on high cholesterol levels and joint pain‚ so anyone who is suffering such ailments may also benefit from taking EPA DHA Essentials by Pure Encapsulations.

    Dosage: Pure Encapsulations recommends that you take two capsules daily along with a meal.

    Cons

    Fantastic product!!!

    I have had four lumbar back surgeries since October 2010 which has left me on my back for six months and the fourth surgery being a fusion. I started taking a mix of the Pure Encapsulation products post surgery and I owe a good part of my recovery to the product.

    great product a great price

    I have been using pure encapsulations for about 7 years now. They have the most epa/dha PER CAPSULE than any other brand I have ever come across. Be careful when reading other omega 3s. Most state how much epa/dha there are in two capsules. But these are 1 capsule for a serving size instead of two capsules per serving size. I take 2-3 per day.

    Pros

      I feel much more alert since I have been taking omegas and havent been sick for as long as I can remember.

    Cons

      They do cause you to burp a bit which is why I started take them at night before bed and that is no longer a problem

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
