Herbs of Gold Natural Salmon Oil contains one of the most well-reputed fish oils, sourced from cold-water deep-sea salmon, and is tested for purity according to TGA standards. Each 1,000mg capsule of fish oil contains eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), at a dosage of 180mg and 120mg, respectively. Gone are the days when all dietary fats were regarded as fattening and problematic.
Through revelatory discoveries in scientific research over decades now, we know that these two fatty acids—EPA and DHA—as naturally found in fatty fish, are not only important for maintaining optimal health, but also for the prevention of a number of chronic degenerative disease, such as cardiovascular disease and cognitive function1. Herbs of Gold Natural Salmon Oil contains these activated Omega 3's in a convenient low-reflux capsule.
EPA and DHA are a part of the Omega 3 family of fatty acids, and are naturally synthesized in humans from the essential fatty acid linolenic acid, which is found in linseeds (flaxseeds), chia seeds, walnuts and green leafy vegetables. Linolenic acid is considered an essential fatty acid, because when it is not consumed through normal diet, a deficiency will develop in time, eventuating in poor health2.
However, even when adequate amounts of linolenic acid are consumed, such as in a nut, seed and green leafy vegetable rich diet, EPA, and especially DHA, may not be produced in sufficient levels to support optiaml health. It has been suggested that approximately only 1% of linolenic acid is converted to DHA. DHA has been identified, at the very least, to be supportive of learning and behaviour, with evidence also indicating a role in boosting school performance3. Herbs of Gold Natural Salmon Oil ensures that your daily needs of these two important macronutrients are covered.
Furthermore, the Omega 3 fatty acids are stored in the body as structural components of cell membranes. They help to displace more inflammatory fatty acids, such as arachidonic acid and linoleic acid. Therefore, their biological effects may increase over time as the bodiy's reservoir of fatty acids are modulated, a little more with each dose.
EPA and DHA combined are typically used to reduce joint inflammation for the management of osteoarthritis. However, research suggests that it may be even more beneficial for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis4. Herbs of Gold Natural Salmon Oil is a purity-tested quality Omega 3 supplement that can provide fatty-acid-peace-of-mind, ensuring that your intake of these crucial activated omega 3's does not drop too low.
