Herbs of Gold Fish Oil 1000 contains the potent activated omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, comprising 30% of a 1,000mg capsule. These specialised fatty acids are only found in seafood, the most abundant of which are fatty fish, such as salmon and sardines. Although these two dietary fats can be produced in the body from the essential fatty acid, linolenic acid, is has been estimated that only 1% of linolenic acid is eventually converted to DHA, through a series of complicated enzymatic reactions. This makes the inclusion of dietary EPA and DHA ideal, making Herbs of Gold Fish Oil 1000 a valuable dietary aid.
The EPA and DHA found in Herbs of Gold Fish Oil 1000 has been demonstrated to positively impact learning and behaviour, as well as boosting school performance1. It has long been known that DHA is important for brain and nerve health, given that high amounts of this fatty acid form the structure of cell membranes, in these high fat content tissues. Omega 3 fatty acids are generally regarded as neuroprotective2. Furthermore, fish oil has been demonstrated to assist in the alleviation of an inflammatory joint disease, called rheumatoid arthritis3.
It is also commonly used to assist with osteoarthritis-related inflammation. Anti-inflammatory fatty acids play an integral role in modulating the types of fatty acids that our body stores in cell membranes, displacing inflammatory fatty acids, such as arachidonic acid and linoloeic acid. This shifting of fatty acid composition takes time, which highlights the importance of regular dosing of EPA and DHA supplements, like Herbs of Gold Fish Oil 1000, or the consumption of dietary sources.
Herbs of Gold Fish Oil 1000 may also be used to reduce skin dryness, which can occur with an omega 3 deficit. Herbs of Gold Fish Oil 1000 is an excellent product, delivering you a TGA-approved and tested supplement with vast health-supportive benefits.
