Designed to offset the excess of omega-6 oils found in meats and most vegetable oils found in the Hunter and Explorer Diets, which can cause them to suffer a relative deficiency of the omega-3 oils. Particularly important to good health are the longer chain omega-3 fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA) found in fish, especially cold-water fish such as Anchovy and Sardine, two beneficial fish for Hunter /Explorer GenoType. Description/Background Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA or also icosapentaenoic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid. It is obtained in the human diet by eating oily fish or fish oil-cod liver, herring, mackerel, salmon, menhaden and sardine. It is also found in human breast milk. Geographic areas where consumption of DHA is high are associated with decreased rates of depression. (1) Sixty percent of the fatty acids that make up neuronal cell membranes of the retina consist of DHA, and it is found particularly concentrated in synaptic membranes (Bazan and Scott, 1990). DHA is essential for prenatal brain development and for healthy postnatal brain function. (2) Two very important omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA). They are found in seafood, especially mackerel, salmon, striped bass, rainbow trout, halibut, tuna, and sardines. Actions and Indications Marine Lipid Concentrate from the South Pacific off the coast of Peru, Deep Ocean waters some of the purest, untouched waters in the world. This pharmaceutical grade marine lipid concentrate offers the assurance that you are meeting your requirements for these valuable long-chain omega-3 fatty acids without the fear of mercury or other free from lipid peroxides, heavy metals, environmental contaminants, and other harmful compounds.
