FISH OIL SUMMARY:

MusclePharm fish oil is a high-potency Nordic fish oil product that is high in DHA/EPA. These essential fatty acids (omega-3-fats) facilitate an overall decrease in fat and cholesterol consumption from your omega intake.

FISH OIL BENEFITS:
  • 1000mg of fish oil (EPA/DHA)
  • Supports heart, brain, vision, and joint health
  • May reduce lipid count and reduce plaque buildup
  • Reduces the risk of diabetes and several forms of cancer
  • Enteric coated citrus flavored fish oil (no fish burps)
  • Purified Nordic fish oil (high quality)
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING FISH OIL:

Individuals who are not able to obtain enough omega-3-fats through a regular diet and want the associated benefits of fish oil consumption.

KEY INGREDIENTS/PROPRIETARY BLENDS IN FISH OIL:

Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA):

DHA is an omega-3-fat (fatty acid) that has a positive effect on diseases such as high blood pressure, arthritis, atherosclerosis, depression, adult-onset diabetes, heart attacks, and some cancers.[1-6]

Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA):

Another of the omega-3-fats; EPA is a potent anti-inflammatory and important for healthy brain function, eye health, and the entire central nervous system.[7-13]

PRODUCT USAGE:

As a dietary supplement, take one soft gel three times daily, preferably with a meal.
