The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids (EFAs) your body needs for proper development and function in both children and adults. EFAs influence the health and functioning of all systems in the body including the brain and nerve cells, hormones and cardiovascular health. These fatty acids regulate the entry of important nutrients into the cell and keep toxins out, thereby maintaining cell membrane function. Omega-3 fatty acids are particularly important, influencing cardiovascular and brain health as they help produce hormone-like compounds that promote the dilation of blood vessels and regulate inflammation and blood pressure.
Although omega-3 fatty acids can be obtained through alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in plant sources, which can be converted to DHA and EPA in the body, this conversion is often inefficient. Marine sources such as salmon oil and fish oils, on the other hand, provide a direct supply of these two fatty acids to be used by the body.
Wild Alaskan Salmon & Fish Oil from Webber naturals uses clear enteric softgel technology, which incorporates natural ingredients into the softgel casing instead of coating them with potentially unhealthy chemicals as is done with enteric-coated softgels. This prevents the softgel from breaking down in the stomach, ensuring optimal delivery and preventing a fishy aftertaste.
