EPA/DHA

$14.35

  • Protect heart health
  • Support brain health
  • Healthy ratio of EPA/DHA
  • Purified and filtered

It is important to avoid consuming too much fat, but fat is a critical component of a healthful diet. While it is true that most people consume far too much fat on a daily basis, there are two fats that are essential in the diet for sound health and are referred to as essential fatty acids (EFA’s). These 2 EFAs are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fat, and linoleic acid, an omega-6 fat. Fats from both the omega-3 and omega-6 groups are critical to good health, but they must be kept in balance.1 Today there is a problem maintaining this balance.

It is important to avoid consuming too much fat, but fat is a critical component of a healthful diet. While it is true that most people consume far too much fat on a daily basis, there are two fats that are essential in the diet for sound health and are referred to as essential fatty acids (EFA’s). These 2 EFAs are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fat, and linoleic acid, an omega-6 fat. Fats from both the omega-3 and omega-6 groups are critical to good health, but they must be kept in balance.1 Today there is a problem maintaining this balance. As stated in Fantastic Voyage, Chapter 6 “Fat and Protein”:

Two families of unsaturated fats–the omega-6 fats, found mainly in plant-based oils, and the omega-3 fats, found in fish, walnuts, and flaxseeds–were in relative balance a century ago. The modern diet now emphasizes omega-6 fats by as much as 25 to 1.

Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.2,3,4One softgel of EPA/DHA provides 300 mg of combined EPA/DHA omega-3 fatty acids.

Other Ingredients:

Gelatin, vitamin E (dl-Alpha tocopheryl acetate as a stabilizer), glycerin and puried water.

ALLERGEN WARNING:

CONTAINS FISH (HERRING, ANCHOVY, SARDINE, SALMON AND MACKEREL) AND SOY.

CAUTION:

Consult with your physician before using this product if you are pregnant, diabetic or allergic to iodine. Do not take this product if you are using blood thinners or anticipate surgery. Do not exceed recommended dose. Pregnant or nursing mothers, children under 18, and individuals with a known medical condition should consult a physician before using this or any dietary supplement.

Suggested Use:

As a dietary supplement, take 1-3 softgels, 1-3 times daily.

We recommend 2 capsules twice a day for a total of 4000 mg of fish oil (1200 mg of EPA/DHA). This is an adequate dose for women, but men can obtain the RDA minimum by eating at least 2 servings of fish each week in addition to the 4 capsules of EPA/DHA a day. Otherwise, men need to take 3 capsules twice a day.

TRANSCEND’s EPA/DHA contains 120 softgels per bottle.

TRANSCEND’s EPA/DHA is equally effective when taken with or without food. However, if your digestive system is sensitive, you may want to take your supplements with meals.
