The Smarter Fish Oil

Digital Podcast: Protect Omega DHA

If your goal is to maintain cardiovascular health and joint flexibility as you age, then a traditional fish oil supplement is a smart choice.  If you also want to support your brain, memory and vision, your average fish oil falls short.

There are facts about fish oil that you should know.

The omega-3 fatty acids found in most supplements is NOT what you find in fresh fish.

There are two highly researched nutrients found in fish; EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).  These two nutrients are so vital to overall health that most experts put fish oil at the top of any healthy shopping list.

However, there is something very different about the omega-3 oil found in supplements and the omega-3 oil found in wild fish. The difference is very easy to understand, however scientists, nutritionists, and doctors are just starting to focus on this very important difference.

The ratio of these two omega-3 fatty acids found in most supplements is opposite of what is found in natural fresh fish.

Wild fish is high in DHA, a nutrient that supports the structure and functions of the brain, nervous system, and eyes. Traditional fish oil supplements are high in EPA, a nutrient supporting healthy inflammation and cardiovascular function. 

Omega-3 fatty acid fish oil supplements generally have about 1/3 DHA and 2/3 EPA. Most fresh wild caught fish contain less EPA with DHA being predominant in almost all cases.  It is also important to note that DHA is a larger molecule that can supply EPA.  In other words, the body can process EPA from DHA, while DHA needs to be supplied by dietary sources.

DHA is a structural and functional component of all cellular membranes. Promising research continues to expand focusing on DHA’s role in the healthy structure and function of the brain, eyes, and nervous system.
