Omega-Pro Essential HP 40/20

$60.00

When it comes to good fats, nothing can beat the health benefits of omega-3 essential fatty acids
found in fish oil.
Your body doesn’t make essential fatty acids on its own so they must be obtained through food or
supplement sources. Fish oil contains two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids – docosahexaenoic acid (DHA),
essential for life-long cognitive function (DHA deficiencies have been linked to Alzheimer’s Disease) and
eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a mood regulator and essential for heart health that are found in the fatty
tissues of cold water oily fish. Some nuts, seeds and vegetables oils contain alpha-linolenic acid which
the body converts into DHA and EPA.
Your body needs a balanced amount of both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids for maintaining good
health, brain function, growth and development. However, a typical North American diet high in fried
foods, cookies, crackers and other snack foods contains elevated amounts of omega-6 fatty acids. This
creates an imbalance, leaving the door open to inflammation. Experts claim that inflammation is at the
root of almost every medical issue including heart attacks, strokes, arthritis and reduces your ability to
fight infectious diseases.
Making sure you are taking adequate amounts of omega-3 daily, like the kind found in CanPrev’s
Omega-ProTM Essential, helps maintain a healthy balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the
body. CanPrev uses molecularly distilled fish oils derived from small, wild, deep sea fish from South
America with added vitamin E to retain freshness. Omega-ProTM Essential formulas go through
rigorous testing by an independent laboratory for 14 separate, stringent quality tests.
