Take Control of Your Heart Health
The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) says that consumption of Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. NOW Foods Omega-3 Molecularly Distilled Fish Oil provides you 680 mg of fatty acids, including 360 mg of EPA, plus 240 mg of DHA, and 80 mg of other fatty acids in each 2-softgel dose, to help you maintain cardiovascular health and lower triglycerides and your risk of heart attack and stroke. In fact, the list of benefits known to come from Omega-3 fatty acids is a long one, including: reduced risk of Age-Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD); reduction of arthritis pain due to the anti-inflammatory properties of Omega-3; reduced fats in the blood and lower cholesterol; reduced risk of heart attack, abnormal heart rhythms, stroke, and even death; depression; reduced age-related dementia, and more!

Why a Supplement?
Omega-3 fatty acids are crucial to the functioning of your body and maintenance of your overall health. But we do not produce them internally, and research indicates that only about 2% of humans are getting at least the recommended daily value of Omega-3s in their diets. That’s where NOW Omega-3 Molecularly Distilled Fish Oil comes in.
Not All Fish Oils are the Same
The purest forms of EPA and DHA are found in certain fish and plants, with the purest forms coming from fish that feed on algae. NOW Omega-3 fish oils are sourced from Peru and primarily derived from sardines, anchovies and mackerel. NOW ingredients are molecularly distilled, which means that they are tested to be free of potentially harmful levels of contaminants such as PCBs, dioxins, mercury and other heavy metals – because many fish are exposed to toxic chemicals such as these. Fish oils that are not molecularly distilled could otherwise expose you to these contaminants. NOW adheres to strict quality controls to make sure that does not happen.
NOW Omega-3 Molecularly Distilled Fish Oil softgels are enteric-coated, which allows them to withstand your stomach acids and move on to your small intestine, where it meets a non-acidic, neutral environment. This coating also prevents fishy burping and aftertaste because it does not dissolve in or get damaged in your stomach. Once it reaches your small intestine, the coating dissolves quickly, and NOW Omega-3 Fish Oil can get busy doing its job!
Get Your Doctor’s Recommendation
While research into the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids is ongoing, health experts generally recommend that people with heart issues get at least 1,000 mg of DHA and EPA a day, and up to 4,000 mg a day. Talk to your doctor before starting a fish-oil supplement to get specific recommendations, depending on your health and any other medications you take.
