100% Marine Omega-3 contains EPA and DHA in fish gelatin softgels that are suitable for pescatarians and people with restricted diets. These softgels are bovine and porcine free. The easy-to-swallow softgels are 50% smaller than regular 1000 mg softgels, but with the same 300 mg dose of EPA/DHA. They are convenient for children aged six and older, as well as adolescents and adults with an aversion to large pills.
EPA and DHA are important components of brain cells and help to support cognitive health and brain function (1,2,3,4,5). DHA is highly concentrated in the brain and retina, where it helps support the development of the brain, eyes and nerves in children up to 12 years of age (3,6,7).
EPA and DHA also promote healthy levels of anti-inflammatory activity in the body (8,9). They play an important role to help maintain cardiovascular health and assist in lowering blood triglycerides/triacylglycerols levels (10,11,12). When used in combination with conventional therapy, they also help reduce the pain of rheumatoid arthritis in adults (13,14).
