Fish oil is made from fish – in GoPrimals case it’s made from Alaskan Pollock, which are caught sustainably off the coast of the Arctic Ocean where the sea is very clean and governments there have very strict conditions to secure the greatest sustainability.
The most important ingredients in fish oil are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which have a variety of benefits for the human body.
- Omega 3 fatty acids reduce levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, lower blood pressure, and acts blood thinning
- Omega 3 fatty acids reduce inflammations
- Omega 3 fatty acids have preventive effects against cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, arteriosclerosis, rheumatism and inflammatory intestinal diseases.
In many studies, science has proven that a daily intake of at least 250 mg EPA/DHA has a positive effect on our cardiovascular system, a normal brain function and a normal vision.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommends a daily intake of at least 250 mg EPA/DHA.
Especially for pregnant women and kids, a sufficient supply with DHA is essential, since a lot of studies have shown that Omega3 plays a big role in the development of the brain in embryonic status and during breastfeeding period.
