Omega-3 FatTY ACIDS

Super EPA is an EPA/DHA-containing fish oil supplement that helps maintain healthy heart, brain, and neurological function while supporting a normal inflammatory response in muscles and joints.*

Because the body does not make EPA or DHA on its own, we can only obtain these essential omega-3 fatty acids from diet, supplementation, or a combination of the two.

Health experts frequently recommend a fish oil dietary supplement as part of a good nutritional foundation. That is because fish oil supplements are an excellent source of two essential omega-3 fatty acids – eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

WHAT'S IN SUPER EPA

  • An excellent balance of EPA and DHA – 425 mg EPA and 270 mg DHA per gelcap.
  • Molecular distillation removes contaminants, including PCBs and heavy metals.
  • Super EPA is NSF Certified for Sport® tested to be free of banned and harmful substances.

Nutrition plays an important role in brain development both structurally and in terms of human intelligence. Fat makes up around 60% of a healthy brain, and omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA, are concentrated in brain regions. Gray matter in the cerebral cortex began to expand, and brain size grew when the human diet included seafood, which is high in DHA. This rise in size and gray matter corresponds to the increased intelligence of modern humans.1

FAQ

Our most frequently asked questions about fish oil supplements

According to a recent study1, to get the recommended quantity of fish oil, you should eat at least three servings of “oily” fish each week and supplement with 500 mg of EPA and DHA daily. Alternatively, if fish isn’t a regular component of your diet, you should take a fish oil supplement with at least 900 mg of EPA and DHA every day.

Nut, seed, and vegetable oils (such as flaxseed oil) can provide precursors to EPA and DHA, although the body’s conversion to EPA and DHA is not always straightforward. Cold-water fish oil, such as anchovies, sardines, mackerel, and other “oily” fish, is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Some omega-3 fatty acids, on the other hand, can be derived from specific types of algae or krill, a small crustacean that is found in the diets of penguins, whales, seals, and other aquatic mammals.

Toxins, such as mercury, are more likely to be found in certain types of fish, and fish rarely get tested for mercury levels. The heavy metal pollutants in Thorne’s fish oil supplements, including mercury, are all analyzed.

Thorne’s fish oil supplements are made from so-called “non-accumulating” fish because purity gets directly tied to efficacy. The term “non-accumulating” refers to fish taken while incredibly young and small and hence do not have toxins deposited in their flesh. Thorne also uses distillation to remove heavy metals, PCBs, and dioxins from the fish oil.

Although gelcaps are the most frequent fish oil supplementation, fish oil supplements are available in various dispensing methods. A liquid fish oil supplement, for example, is a fantastic alternative for people who have trouble swallowing gelcaps, such as young children or the elderly.

Because of the heart, muscle, and joint benefits, athletes can benefit from taking a fish oil supplement. Thorne’s Super EPA is NSF Certified for Sport® and provides the best quality fish oil available, which is essential for professional athletes who need to know their nutritional supplement has only the components mentioned on the label – meaning no forbidden chemicals.

Supplements that are fat-soluble, such as fish oil supplements, are better absorbed when taken with food. A fish oil supplement can generally be taken at any time of day. Taking a fish oil supplement with a meal is recommended, as taking any supplement on an empty stomach might make some individuals feel nauseated.

Some fish oil supplements have a fishy aftertaste that some individuals dislike. Thorne’s Omega Superb liquid fish oil is lightly sweetened and lemon-berry flavored. If you want to take a gelcap, you can freeze them before consuming them to eliminate the fishy aftertaste. In any case, if you’ve been taking the supplement for a while, the “fish burps” should go away.

Thorne’s fish oil supplements provide extra benefits in addition to heart and brain health. Thorne’s fish oil supplements contain more omega-3 fatty acids per serving than many other fish oil supplements on the market. The company also offers a selection of fish oil supplements to address specific health concerns.
