Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids because dogs and cats must get them from food or supplementation; i.e.‚ these fatty acids cannot be made from other substances in the body. Cats‚ in particular‚ do not produce the desaturase enzymes required to convert alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA); thus‚ omega-3 supplementation from a fish source (EPA and DHA) rather than a plant source (ALA) is critical.
EPA and DHA are beneficial for the cardiovascular system. They support good circulation by maintaining healthy blood vessels‚ optimizing vascular endothelial function‚ and maintaining already healthy blood lipid levels.
The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are also supportive of healthy brain function. EPA and DHA are not just important during periods of increased brain growth that characterize prenatal and postnatal development‚ they are important throughout life. In particular‚ cognitive functioning in the aging animal can be supported by DHA and EPA.
Thorne Vet's fish oil products have been among the best-sellers for over two decades because of their exceptional purity and quality. Recent concentration technology has permitted an increase in the amount of EPA and DHA in each gelcap. This more concentrated formula provides the amounts of EPA and DHA that recent research says is warranted‚ without having to take extra capsules. As always‚ Thorne Vet provides the highest quality‚ purest fish oil available &ndash molecular distillation is utilized to ensure removal of cholesterol and contaminants‚ including PCBs and heavy metals.
