Kordel′s Omega-3 Fish Oil contains 180mg EPA and 120mg DHA in a Vegicaps soft capsule. It provides all the great benefits of omega-3 for the maintenance of good health. It is naturally sourced from deep sea cold water fish such as anchovies and sardines. It is produced using an exclusive molecular-distillation process to remove toxins such as dioxins, PCBs, mercury and other heavy metals. It is non-toxic, safe and well-tolerated for long-term human consumption. Kordel’s Omega-3 Fish Oil is a convenient way to supplement your daily intake of omega-3 fatty acids.
Fish Oil: A Good Source of Omega-3
Fish oil, derived from the tissues of fish, is highly recommended for its health benefits as it contains omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA and DHA. EPA and DHA are polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids and are thus more readily used by the body. These nutrients are essential for good cell membrane function and are important building blocks for nerve and brain tissue. They help maintain healthy lipid levels, reduce the levels of ‘bad’ cholesterol in the body and keep our blood flowing smoothly. Research has revealed their potential for protecting against heart disease, stroke and rheumatoid arthritis.
Maintains Heart Health
Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil can inhibit the synthesis of triglycerides in the liver, help to reduce fat (triglycerides) in the blood, increase HDL levels, thin the blood to ensure smooth blood flow, prevent plaque formation and lower blood pressure levels, all of which encourage a healthy cardiovascular system. Clinical studies have found that daily supplementation of omega-3 fatty acids can help maintain a healthy heart.
Prevents Cardiovascular Disease
Fish oil is naturally high in omega-3 fatty acids, especially EPA and DHA. Omega-3 fatty acids are important constituents of the cell membrane and help maintain the suppleness and elasticity of blood vessels. When plaque builds up on arterial walls and then breaks loose, it causes clots. If a clot gets stuck in the brain, it causes a stroke and when it plugs an artery, it causes a heart attack. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids break up clots before they can cause any cardiovascular problems in the body.
Relieves Joint Inflammation in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
Supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil, namely EPA and DHA, has been found to confer anti-inflammatory effects on the joints. This has been attributed to the competition of EPA and DHA with inflammatory factors at the site of action which suppresses inflammatory responses. More recent studies have found that EPA and DHA can cause a change in cell membrane content and promote the production of resolvin, a lipid which is far more potent than omega-3 in preventing and resolving inflammation.1,2,3,4This makes omega-3 from fish oil a suitable choice to relieve arthritis-related symptoms such as morning stiffness, swelling and pain, as well as serve as an adjuvant therapy that can be used together with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Optimises Brain Function
The composition of omega-3 fatty acids present in our brain is highly determined by our dietary intake. These essential fatty acids have crucial roles in maintaining the fluidity of brain cell membranes, especially at the synapses where the transmission of messages occur. DHA, in particular, possesses neuroprotective properties which improve cerebral blood flow, reduce inflammation and mitigate amyloid plaque formation. These are the reasons why scientists believe that omega-3 fatty acids are protective against the deterioration of brain functions such as in the case of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Other Health Benefits
Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil also significantly benefit visual acuity and cognitive development while helping to prevent cancer and premature death. Psychiatry department researchers at the University of Sheffield in the UK, along with other researchers have noted the possibility that omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil supplements ‘alleviate’ the symptoms of depression, bipolar disorder and psychosis [Journal of Affective Disorder Vol. 48 (2-3); 149-55] .
Your family history of cardiovascular disease can determine your risk of developing the condition yourself. This is because family members share genes, common behaviour, diet, lifestyle and environment. If a first-degree blood relative (parent or sibling) has had coronary heart disease or a stroke before the age of 55 (for a male relative) or 65 (for a female relative), you have an increased risk of developing that condition. Knowing your risk of cardiovascular disease might help you seek out preventive measures.
