Mega EPA/DHA
120 softgels
Item Catalog Number: 00625

The body needs fatty acids to survive and is able to make all but two of them: linoleic acid (LA), in the omega-6 family, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in the omega-3 family. These two fatty acids must be supplied by the diet and are therefore considered essential fatty acids (EFAs).

Omega-3 fatty acids, found in coldwater fish (and fish oil), perilla and flaxseed oils, are essential elements of a healthy diet. Omega-3 oils contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are usually lacking in the typical Western diet, which is filled with foods containing high amounts of omega-6 fats.97 EPA and DHA can be synthesized in the body from ALA, but EPA and DHA synthesis may be insufficient under certain conditions and for most people that consume Western diets.

Most Americans and citizens of other Western nations consume far too many omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and not enough omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. In fact, some Western diets consist of 20 parts of omega-6 to only one part of omega-3. For optimum health, the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids should be between 1:1 and 4:1.100

Studies associate the Mediterranean diet — rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids such as that found in olive oil, and antioxidant-rich fruits, vegetables, and herbs — with cardiovascular health and increased life span.101-109 Other studies support omega-3’s importance in cardiovascular health.110-112

Molecularly distilled MEGA EPA/DHA contains twice as much EPA and DHA as most commercially available fish oil capsules.

    I have no complaints about this fish oil. I'm very discerning in my fish oil selections, as it's very easy to buy fish oil that's of poor or mediocre quality - which will dimish or downright cancel out potential benefits (espcially if the oil has rancidified).

    I trust Life Extension Foundation's products -- and I just couldn't pass this up when I saw it in a clearance sale. While I usually prefer to get the enhanced fish oil formula with olive fruit extract and sesame lignans, quality fish oil is still quality fish oil.

    You have to take more than one dosage per day, however, to achieve the therapeutic level of about 2,500 mg per day. I take 3-4 pills at a time (rathr than the stated 2 pill dosage), at least twice a day.

    no fishy taste

    This is easier to swallow than the liquids and taking 2 a day seems to help my joints.

                    I use in combination with an omega 3-6-9 product

                    Fairly large capsules but slippery and therefore easier to swallow than the enteric coated version which I really didn't like

                      I love that I don't taste anything "fishy" when swallowing or later when it has dissolved. I have tried other products and they either turn my stomach or I burp them often, which is really unpleasant.

                      I think the Mega EPA/DHA is a good product. The only issue I have is the price. I use another fish oil product, each softgel containing 500 mg. EPA and 250 mg. DHA. 180 softgels for a little over 21 bucks. I stock up on the L.E.F. product when they have their Overstock Sale. Can't beat the price!!
