NOW Foods Omega-3 is a blend of omega-3 fish oils from salmon, mackerel, anchovies and sardines. NOW’s Omega-3 is rich in EPA and DHA, the two omega-3 constituents thought to be responsible for the majority of fish oil’s benefits. Fish oil supplementation is believed to help improve brain function, promote cardiovascular health, improve joint function, reduce unhealthy inflammation, promote healthy cholesterol levels, reduce blood triglyceride levels and promote skin, hair and nail health.
NOW’s Omega-3 provides a perfect balance of EPA and DHA with plenty of servings so you don’t run out as soon as you start realizing the benefits of supplementation. The large amount of softgels also allows you the option of taking more fish oil capsules if preferable. Some like to take 1 serving with each meal, breakfast, lunch and dinner as to provide a constant stream of omega-3 fatty acids to the body throughout the day. Given the low cost and ultra-high quality, you really can’t beat Now’s premium Omega-3 supplement.
Consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. FDA evaluated the data and determined that, although there is scientific evidence supporting the claim, the evidence is not conclusive. Omega-3 is typically derived from fish oils of salmon, sardines, anchovies, and mackeral fish.
