Heart Health and Omegas
9 in 10 Canadians are at risk of heart disease. Simple lifestyle changes, like adding omega-3s to your diet, can help lower your risk. Omega-3s can help:
- Strengthen your heart
- Keep your arteries healthy
- Lower blood pressure
- Lower “bad” cholesterol
Depending on the levels of EPA, DHA and other nutrients, omega-3s can also offer additional benefits such as:
- Reducing joint pain associated with osteoarthritis
- Relief of symptoms of PMS and menstrual cramps
- Support of a healthy brain and cognitive function
Omega-3s are one type of essential fatty acid (EFA), and include eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Fatty acids are the basic building blocks of which fats and oils are composed. Certain fatty acids are considered “essential” because they cannot be produced in the body and must be obtained from our diet or through supplements.
Health Canada recommends eating two servings of fish a week to obtain the nutrients needed for optimal health. However, many people may not be consuming adequate amounts of fish due to personal preference or concerns about mercury and other contaminants. Supplementing with a high quality, purified omega-3 supplement can help provide this essential nutrient without the risk associated with eating fish.
Jamieson fish oil formulas provide a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, while our krill oil products offer all the same benefits and many more exclusive to the Jamieson Omega COMPLETE™ line of supplements. All Jamieson omega-3s are sustainably sourced and guaranteed pure.
