Tuna Omega-3 Oil, 120 Softgels
Tuna Omega-3 Oil contains a non-concentrated, natural profile of tuna oil that is rigorously tested to be below regulatory standards for contaminates and toxins. Along with supporting general health, it also:
- Supports cognition
- Supports skin and hair health
- Supports emotional balance*
- Supports the body's natural inflammatory response function as it relates to periodic challenges like consumption of high-fat meal or strenuous activity*
- Contains DHA, which is important for proper fetal eye and brain development
Does Tuna Omega-3 Oil support a healthy heart?
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) support normal lipid profiles already within a normal range. Supportive but not conclusive research has shown that EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.*
Studies on nutrients generally use large doses and these studies, some of which are cited below, are the basis for much of the information we provide you in this publication about whole food ingredients. See the supplement facts for Tuna Omega-3 Oil.
