Contrary to popular belief – and fad diets – fats are integral factors in the maintenance of health. Many diets lack essential fatty acids (EFAs), polyunsaturated fats with countless benefits for the cardiovascular, nervous, and musculoskeletal systems, as well as hormone production and cellular repair. They are “essential” because, although the body cannot make them, they are vital to health.
The most important EFAs are omega-3 and omega-6. The ideal omega-3 to omega-6 ratio is 1:4, but typical North American diets provide a 1:20 ratio, or even 1:30. Omega-6s generate inflammation, while omega-3s reduce it. Natural Factors RxOmega-3 Mini-Gels provide high levels of the omega-3s EPA and DHA to balance dietary intake.
The fish oils are pharmaceutical grade and non-GMO. Only the highest quality cold-water sources are used, and are guaranteed to be free from environmental pollutants, heavy metals, pesticides, and other harmful compounds. The easy-to-swallow mini-gels are 45% smaller than standard softgels, while still providing 500 mg of combined EPA/DHA, one of the highest potencies available in a mini-gel. The Enteripure®enteric softgels dissolve in the intestines, ensuring optimal absorption and no fishy aftertaste. Rather than a traditional chemical enteric coating, Enteripure employs the latest technology to incorporate the plant-sourced enteric ingredients into the softgel casing itself.
