What is DPA?
Approximately 8 years ago we made our first major change in our Omega line changing to a Triglyceride Formulation. This change was brought about by keeping up with the newest information and changes in the industry. Adding DPA to omega products will be that next major change in the industry. Here is a technical explanation of what DPA does”
“DPA collects in a variety of tissues including the liver, breast, brain, eyes, heart and red blood cells and is the intermediate between EPA and DHA. This, combined with the
retroconversion of DHA back to EPA, suggests that DPA may be a reservoir for both EPA and DHA, thus increasing the storage of EPA, DHA and DPA and in turn, the beneficial healthy
effects, of omega 3 fatty acids.”
Here is a non-technical explanation of the above:
“DPA acts as a storage unit waiting for the body to say if it needs more of EPA or DHA and it converts to DHA or back to EPA depending on which one is needed.”
• Supports Cardiovascular Health and Blood Sugar Metabolism
• Supports Cognitive Function and Development
• Supports Healthy Skin, Joints and Connective Tissues
• Increases Visual and Ocular Health
• Maintains Normal Inflammatory Balance
Omega-3 Complete is a high-concentration fish oil sourced from waters off the Chilean coast. As the world’s least industrialized coastline, these cold, fresh waters provide the cleanest, most sustainable source of fish in the world. Omega-3 Complete provides a total of 950mg of total Omega 3’s as triglyerides and 50mg of DPA which as we stated above increases the amount of total Omega 3’s in your body. Each soft gel is in natural triglycerides, the preferred form with superior absorption. Vitamin E (as mixed tocopherols) and rosemary extract are used to ensure maximum purity and freshness. This exclusive fish oil is purified, vacuum-distilled and independently tested to ensure heavy metals, pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are removed to undetectable levels.
Fish Oil Delivery – Triglycerides vs. Ethyl Esters
While the amount of EPA and DHA provided in a fish oil product is important for efficacy, the type of fish oil delivered is another significant factor in defining fish oil effectiveness. The human body is accustomed to digesting and absorbing EPA and DHA in the natural triglyceride form. A review of the existing literature has shown that fish oil provided in the natural triglyceride form is more efficiently digested and is 70% more absorbable than the ethyl ester form.
Cardiovascular and Blood Sugar Health
Omega-3 fatty acids have long been known to benefit cardiovascular health. The well-known GISSI-Prevezione trial found that just 1 g a day of omega-3 fatty acids had a significant impact on cardiovascular health after three to four months of consumption.
Additional Benefits of Omega-3 Fatty Acids
In addition to their well-known cardiovascular benefits, omega-3 fatty acids play a central role in brain development, mood enhancement, improved cognition, joint comfort and visual acuity.
One teaspoonful (5ml) per day or otherwise as directed by your healthcare professional.
