ReNew Life Formulas, leader in all-natural digestive and total-health supplements since 1997, is expanding its Norwegian Gold line of premium purity fish oils with advanced heart support Norwegian Gold EPA 1000 Omega, the highest potency all-EPA fish oil with 1,000 mg omega-3 EPA per softgel. This specially formulated heart support fish oil helps lower triglycerides without raising LDL cholesterol levels.
EPA omega-3 and heart health
Most fish oils contain a blend of both types of essential fatty acids, EPA and DHA. While both types offer many health benefits, it is EPA omega-3 that helps to lower triglycerides and support healthy blood pressure without raising harmful LDL cholesterol levels, making it the best omega-3 type for those looking to be proactive about their heart health.
Extensive research into the benefits of EPA omega-3 have found that this nutrient helps the body maintain its normal inflammatory response, which in turns helps maintain healthy cholesterol, blood pressure and triglyceride levels.
“EPA is the heart-healthy omega-3,” says Brenda Watson, C.N.C., PBS health educator and ReNew Life president. “You need a certain amount of EPA to see these heart health benefits. Clinical studies have shown us that a specific amount of EPA in the daily diet actually helps to lower the level of excess fats in the bloodstream, known as triglycerides. Supporting healthy triglyceride and cholesterol levels while maintaining a healthy inflammation response are the main ways in which EPA omega-3 may help.”
In a recent clinical study, researchers found that 2,000 mg of EPA daily—the amount of EPA concentrated into two EPA 1000 Omega softgels—helped to lower triglycerides by 19.7 percent in just 12 weeks. “It can be difficult to get this amount of EPA in an EPA/DHA fish oil blend,” says Watson. “You would have to take a handful of these fish oil sofgels to reach the level of EPA in EPA 1000 Omega. We formulated this concentrated EPA-only fish oil to give consumers a high potency heart-specific option.”
