  • Life Extension Mega EPA/DHA contains the two fatty acids that your body cannot produce on it's own, LA and ALA.
  • LA and ALA are converted by your body into EPA and DHA.
  • EPA and DHA are typically lacking in the average American diet, and is therefore recommended to be obtained through supplementation.
  • Studies show that people who eat the typical Mediterranean diet, usually rich in omega-3 fatty acids, have a much lower chance of heart and cardiovascular disease.

Give Your Body the Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids it Needs With Life Extension Mega EPA/DHA

Your body requires omega fatty acids to survive. You are capable of producing all fatty acids on your own except two. These two EFA's that must be obtained through diet are linoleic acid (LA), which is in the omega-6 family, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is in the omega-3 family. These two fatty acids must be obtained through your diet or supplementation, and are therefore considered essential fatty acids (EFAs).

Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in cold water fish and fish oil, flaxseed and perilla oils. These foods are important ingredients in a healthy, EFA-rich diet. Omega-3 oils contain two very important types of acid, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These two fatty acids are typically insufficient in the average Western diet. However, the Western diet is filled with foods which are rich with high amounts of omega-6 fats. EPA and DHA can be transformed in your body from ALA, but EPA and DHA transformation may be insufficient under certain conditions and for most individuals that follow the typical Western diet.

Studies have shown that there is a link between the typical Mediterranean diet, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids, with a lower risk of  cardiovascular disease and a longer life span. Other scientific studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids are important for supporting good cardiovascular health.

Life Extension Mega EPA/DHA softgels give you EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) in a form that has a high absorption rate. Life Extension MEGA EPA/DHA is molecularly distilled and contains twice as much EPA and DHA as the average fish oil capsules on the market today.
