1 Frequently Asked Questions Marine Fish Oil What is Marine Fish Oil? Marine Fish Oil is a highly purified, concentrated fish oil supplement recommended by healthcare professionals to help patients enhance intake of omega-3 fatty acids that are often inadequate in the diet. The specific types of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, called EPA and DHA, are important to healthy cardiovascular, neurological, and immune system function. Can I get enough omega-3 fatty acids by eating fish? If you do not eat fish two or more times per week, chances are you may not be getting adequate amounts of EPA and DHA that your heart, brain, and immune system need to function optimally. Individuals with certain medical conditions often need significantly more omega-3 fatty acids than can reasonably be obtained by eating fish. Therefore, fish oil supplements are recommended by physicians and medical organizations such as the American Heart Association to ensure adequate omega-3 intake. How does fish oil benefit heart health? EPA and DHA in fish oil help maintain normal blood triglyceride levels, reduce platelet stickiness, maintain elasticity of artery walls, stabilize heart rhythm, and assist in regulating blood pressure. They also keep blood from clotting too quickly. Studies show reduced risk of heart attack and stroke. Bypass surgery and angioplasty patients reportedly also benefit from fish oils. Clinical trials have shown that fish oils are safe for heart disease patients. How does fish oil help maintain optimal brain function? Inadequate amounts of omega-3 fatty acids can subtly alter brain chemistry. Restoring the body's natural balance of these important fats may help alleviate many types of depression. Fish oil supplements may also be helpful for those who do not respond to traditional antidepressants. Studies have shown positive benefits for patients with bipolar disorder (manic-depressive illness), schizophrenia, and Alzheimers Disease. Increased ability to handle stress, improved memory, and enhanced cognitive function are among the reported benefits. How does Marine Fish Oil compare with regular fish oil supplements? Marine Fish Oil contains 500 mg of EPA and DHA fatty acids per softgel. Regular fish oil supplements typically supply about 300 mg per softgel. Thus, fewer softgels per day of Marine Fish Oil are needed to obtain the amount of fatty acids needed. Cod liver oil is not the same as fish body oils and should not be used as a substitute. How much Marine Fish Oil should I take? One to four softgels daily is recommended for general use; however, as many as 10 or 12 softgels may be recommended by physicians for patients predisposed to neurological conditions such as Alzheimers or bipolar disorder, coronary artery disease, diabetes, or rheumatoid arthritis. The amount can be divided and taken several times per day or taken all at once. Marine Fish Oil is safe for adults, children, and nursing mothers. How is the purity of Marine Fish Oil assured? A rigorous purification process called molecular distillation is used to remove heavy metals such as mercury, as well as PCBs, pesticides, and other impurities found in fish and crude fish oil products. This advanced technology allows higher amounts of fish oil to be taken safely when medically indicated. How long will it take to see benefits? Some patients detect noticeable benefits in one to two weeks. However, it may take several months for full benefits to be seen as each individual is different.
