Omega-3 Heart Health
Omega-3 Heart Health
The American Heart Association recognizes the importance of the omega-3’s essential nutrients EPA and DHA in promoting cardiac health, lowering blood triglycerides and in protecting against cardiovascular disease. The high EPA Omega-3 in OmegaBrite provides important anti-inflammatory protection for heart and overall health. The American Heart Association recommends two fish meals a week and says that a 0.5-1.8 grams of Omega-3 per day can be beneficial. Those with heart disease may need more than 1 gram per day and may find it beneficial to increase their dosage to 2-4 grams OmegaBrite per day with medical supervision.
The American Heart Association has also issued new recommendations for women with hypercholesterolemia or hypertriglyceridemia. The AHA says that women with those conditions may benefit from 1800 mg of EPA per day. This recommendation is supported from research in the JELIS study that shows that even in those individuals eating a high fish diet, on statins, taking 1800 mg EPA Omega-3 supplement further improves cardiac health. For those individuals who are on a statin therapy, a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology in August 2006 recommends that all individuals on a statin also benefit from taking an Omega-3.
