With nearly two-thirds of Americans being overweight or obese, you would think there wouldn’t be a need for dietary fat. However, the human body needs essential fatty acids, and Omega-3 is a type that is essential for life. This type of fat isn’t one that your body can manufacture on its own, so it’s important that you get it from food sources or supplements.
While Omega-3 fatty acids are found in some plant sources such as flaxseeds or chia seeds, fish oil has unique properties that those source just don’t have. Fish oils are a direct source of two long-chain fatty acids known as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA) which are extremely important for your heart. These two types of Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in coldwater fish such as wild salmon, tuna, halibut, mackerel, sablefish, sardines, and anchovies.
Fish oil became popular as “heart healthy” when researchers started studying the Mediterranean diet of the 1940s and 1950s and is the recommendation of many cultures around the Mediterranean Sea such as southern Italy, Greece, and Spain. The diet is basically plant-based with foods such as vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, and nuts. It also places a huge emphasis on consuming a moderate to high consumption of fish, as well as a moderate consumption of olive oil. After much research on the Mediterranean diet, researchers found that it could significantly reduce coronary heart disease and heart attacks.
In addition to providing a protective component for the heart, Omega-3 fatty acids have also been linked to healthy aging. Science has proven EPA and DHA to benefit fetal development (i.e., neuronal, retinal, and immune functions). EPA and DHA are also essential for healthy brain and immune functions, and they are also helpful for reducing inflammation.
Because some people just don’t like the taste of fish, they may opt for supplementing their diet with an easy-to-swallow softgel such as in Natura Omega-3.

Natura Omega-3 Protects the Cardiovascular System – Many studies have been done throughout the decades to back up Omega-3’s benefits for the heart and circulatory problems. Fish oils reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and they even act as a natural blood thinner which results in lower blood pressure./ Irregular heartbeat, blood-clot risk, and arterial plaque buildup can all be prevented with regular consumption of EPA/DHA Omega-3 fatty acids.// Regular consumption also reduces blood markers for inflammation, including C-reactive protein and interleukin-6, which are known markers for heart attacks. For those who have heart attacks, taking only 1,000 milligrams of Omega-3 can reduce their risk of sudden death by 42 percent. And, the American Heart Association® recommends a daily intake of at least 1,000 milligrams to prevent heart attack and at least 2,000 milligrams for those with elevated triglycerides.
Natura Omega-3 Boosts Brain Health – Research has shown EPA/DHA Omega-3 to be very beneficial for brain health. For unborn children and pregnant moms, adequate consumption of Omega-3 plays a critical role in developing the baby’s brain and preventing moms from perinatal depression. For children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Omega-3 supplementation can achieve and maintain symptom control. Studies also suggest abnormalities of essential fatty acids in cell membranes of patients with schizophrenia, and some evidence found Omega-3 to be an effective adjunct to antipsychotic prescription medication. Still yet, Omega-3 has been shown to prevent inflammatory neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Natura Omega-3 Relieves Joint Pain – Patients with active rheumatoid arthritis received beneficial long-term effects of supplementation with Omega-3. A study published in Arthritis Rheumatology included 90 patients in a 12-month double-blind, randomized study. They were separated into 3 test groups. On a daily basis, each group received a supplement form. One received 2.6 grams of Omega-3; another received 1.3 grams of Omega-3 plus 3 grams of olive oil; and the third group received 6 grams of olive oil. The only group that produced positive results was the first group who took 2.6 grams of Omega-3 per day. Significant clinical improvement was noted on pain level, and there was a decreased need for concomitant anti-rheumatic medication.
Natura Omega-3 May Reduce the Risk for Cancer – According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, Omega-3 fatty acids “may reduce cancer risk and help manage certain cancers.” Studies are shown that Omega-3 can inhibit angiogenesis which stops cancer from proliferating and migrating. For those undergoing cancer surgery, short-term Omega-3 consumption postoperative showed reduce infectious complications and inflammatory cytokines.
As a dietary supplement, adults take one (1) softgel 1 to 2 times daily preferably with meals or as directed by a healthcare professional.
EPA/DHA Omega-3 – 1,000 mg. – Essential to life is EPA/DHA Omega-3 fatty acids which can be found in coldwater fish. It has been linked to healthy aging and is important for the heart, brain, and joint health. Fish oils reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels; regulate heartbeat; lower blood-clot risk, arterial plaque buildup, inflammation markers, and heart attacks. ///// The risk of sudden death due to heart attack can be reduced by 42 percent with just 1,000 milligrams per day. Omega-3 is also very important for brain health from baby’s in the mother’s womb through the elder years. It can also help with depression, attention deficit, and dementia./// People with joint pain or active rheumatoid arthritis may significantly benefit from Omega-3. Cancer may also be stopped in its track with Omega-3./
