Item: Kordel's Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil 1000mg 3 x 120's
Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is 100% pure salmon oil containing the essential fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Salmon oil is a direct source of the omega-3 fatty acids which cannot be manufactured by the body but are required for a variety of functions.
Antibiotics are used extensively to farm salmon, an action that results in the evolution of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” which pose risks to human health. Wild salmon on the other hand, feed on live organisms in the sea and contain high quality omega-3 fatty acids, with no antibiotics, hormone residue or animal by-products.
Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is also free of heavy metal contamination (including mercury).
Vitamin E is added to this formula to act as an antioxidant. It helps prevent the oil from becoming rancid. It also protects cell membranes rich in essential fatty acids from oxidation by free radicals.
100% Pure Salmon
Among cold water fatty fish, salmon is one of the better sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Its consumption directly introduces EPA and DHA into the body. Several studies have found that eating salmon once a week can reduce the risk of a heart attack by 50%.
EPA is a direct source of the prostaglandins E3 series, which is responsible for making blood thinner to help prevent blood clots. EPA reduces blood triglyceride and cholesterol levels and tends to lower blood pressure in individuals with hypertension.
DHA also plays a role in preventing excessive blood clotting and may be effective in reducing triglyceride levels in individuals at risk of heart disease.
Many people cannot acquire sufficient quantities of EPA and DHA through their diets due to genetic limitations, nutrient deficiencies, illnesses, ageing or blockage by other dietary factors (eg, excessive sugar and saturated fat intake). Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil is an ideal way to obtain EPA and DHA from a natural source.
Medical research has provided convincing evidence that omega-3 fatty acids are able to retard inflammatory disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. Both EPA and DHA have anti-inflammatory properties which make them effective in relieving symptoms of arthritis.
DHA plays a vital role in the maintenance of effective brain function during every stage of life, from infancy to adulthood. Low levels of DHA have been linked to symptoms of ageing such as memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. An increasing number of researchers are also observing the link between DHA deficiency and depression. Studies have confirmed a direct link between DHA and mental health.
In children, DHA deficiencies can cause attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). A comparative study of 96 boys found that subjects with ADHD had significantly lower levels of DHA.
DHA is the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the retina of the eye. It is essential for proper development of the retina, particularly in infants.
Imbalance in dietary fat intake; helps to reduce high cholesterol, triglyceride and blood pressure levels; relieves symptoms of inflammatory disorders like arthritis and eczema. For proper mental and eye function.
