Essential Fatty Acids (EFA), like omega-3 fatty acids, are natural substances that your body needs to establish and maintain overall health. Because the typical Canadian diet is quite deficient in essential fats combined with the fact that our bodies don’t produce them – it becomes essential to take a daily fish oil supplement.
Omega-3 fats offer many health benefits including freedom from pain and inflammation, protection from stroke/heart attack, maintenance of joint health and prevention of memory loss. Regular omega-3 supplementation also helps to soothe and lubricate the bowel, easing elimination and supporting overall digestive health…and the list goes on.
Of the three most common types of omega-3 fats, the two you are probably most familiar with are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) found in fish and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which is found in plants. When looking for a quality fish oil supplement you want to look for higher levels of combined EPA/DHA on the label. You also want to choose a supplement that has undergone 3rd party testing for contamination and has received a 5-star rating by the International Fish Oil Standards program (IFOS).
Renew Life Norwegian Gold – Super Critical Omega is an excellent supplement choice offering maximum strength omega-3. It meets or exceeds world standards by being subject to a minimum of three purification steps to ensure the highest levels of freshness and the absence of any chemicals or toxins.
