  • Metagenics’ OmegaGenics EPA-DHA 720 provides a full 720 milligrams of omega-3 essential fatty acids per soft gel. It is a combination of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) derived from fish oil. EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids that your body needs‚ but cannot make on its own‚ which is why they are called ‘essential.’ You must obtain them from diet or supplementation. This supplement provides a convenient 860 mg of EPA and 580 mg of DHA‚ derived from fish such as sardines‚ anchovies‚ and mackerel. Each softgel has a pleasant‚ natural lemon flavor that allows you to avoid the typical fishy aftertaste.

    Both EPA and DHA compete against an inflammatory compound called arachidonic acid (AA) for space in cell membranes. If you have more EPA and DHA in your system‚ the chances will be reduced for AA to make its way into your cells. Omega-3 fatty acids have also been studied for their role in preventing heart disease.

    Both omega-3 (including EPA and DHA) and omega-6 are essential fatty acids‚ but omega-6s has been known to cause inflammation in excessive amounts. Research suggests that the appropriate balance should be 1:1‚ meaning that for every omega-3 fatty acid‚ you should consume an omega-6 fatty acid. Even a 1:4 ratio is within the acceptable range. The reason so many people need to supplement today is because the standard American diet provides anywhere between a 1:10 and 1:20 ratio. Since we know that omega-6 fatty acids can cause inflammation‚ this ratio is potentially harmful. Inflammation is not necessarily bad‚ as it is an important part of the healing process‚ but excess inflammation can cause tissue damage and lead to disease. Many experts have even linked the type of inflammation caused by excessive omega-6 fatty acids with atherosclerosis (or a clogging of the arteries). On the other hand‚ omega-3 fatty acids prevent platelets from sticking to the walls of your arteries‚ reducing your chances for abnormal clotting and plaque formation. Healthy levels of EPA and DHA have also been shown to support the immune‚ gastrointestinal‚ musculoskeletal and nervous systems.

    While you’re trying to balance your omega-3 to omega-6 ratio‚ you should try to avoid or reduce your intake of foods that are exceptionally rich in omeg-6 fatty acids‚ such as avocados‚ whole grains‚ nuts‚ and seeds—in addition to processed foods and vegetable oils. As long as your diet is built on an imbalanced ratio of fatty acids‚ you will benefit from omega-3 supplementation in the form of DHA and EPA.

    OmegaGenics EPA-DHA 720 Softgels by Metagenics was designed to help people get their omega-3 to omega-6 ratios back in check‚ as evidence has shown this can reduce your risk for inflammatory conditions. In addition to the DHA and EPA content‚ this supplement provides other omega-3 fatty acids. Rosemary is included to stabilize the oil‚ so it maintains freshness for a longer period of time. This formula was produced in a licensed Norwegian facility and tested to ensure that there are no contaminants. Each bottle contains 120 softgel capsules‚ which should last for about one month at the recommended dosage.

    Metagenics creates innovative supplements that help people overcome the symptoms of chronic diseases and maintain their health. Quality and research is paramount‚ and has been since the company was founded in 1983. All active ingredients in Metagenics products have been demonstrated effective by third-party scientists.

    Cons

      It was expensive at my nutritionist's office, I'll buy from Pureformulas.com from now on.
