Omega 3 is a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, which are a family of important fatty acids that play a role in a variety of body functions. As your body cannot produce these fatty acids, you need to get them from your diet. Here’s a closer look.
Omega Rich Fish Oil
Each serving of Omega 3 has 2000mg of fish oil. The omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil are known to support a healthy immune system, increased cardiovascular health, and cognitive health, among other benefits. Taking a fish oil supplement may also help balance your omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. Diets are often low in omega 3 and high in omega 6, which can limit your inflammatory response and may increase your risk of heart disease and high blood pressure. There are two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and Omega 3 from AP Regimen contains both. You get 720mg of Eicosatetraenoic acid (EPA) and 480mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Eicosatetraenoic Acid (EPA)
EPA is found in a variety of animal products, but the most abundant sources are fatty fish, such as mackerel and wild salmon. EPA accounts for 36% of the omega 3 fatty acids in this supplement. Along with DHA, your body benefits from EPA, as it plays a role in the anti-inflammatory response. Ensuring proper daily intake of EPA may promote better cell health, which can lead to a wide range of health benefits, including improved cardiovascular health. Your body also converts some of the EPA to DHA.
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)
DHA is the second omega 3 fatty acid found in fatty fish. It accounts for 24% of the omega 3 fatty acids in each serving of AP Regimen Omega 3 and is the more essential of the two fatty acids. DHA is a key compound found in all cell membranes, especially in the brain. Supplying your body with DHA may also improve your heart health. Studies show that DHA can reduce blood pressure levels, raise good cholesterol, and decrease your risk of developing blood clots. DHA may also fight inflammation, which can have a positive impact on your workouts. Fighting inflammation helps reduce swelling and boosts your post-workout recovery. You may be able to get back into the gym sooner after an intense workout.
