How Metagenics OmegaGenics EPA-DHA 1000 Works
Metagenics OmegaGenics EPA-DHA 1000 provides ample amounts of EPA, DHA, and other omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are imperative for optimal health and wellness.* Omega-3 fatty acids are considered “essential” because your body doesn’t produce them on its own. In other words, you need to consume these particular fatty acids from food and/or nutritional supplements. The major providers of EPA and DHA in the human diet are fish. Unfortunately, eating large amounts of fish is a growing health concern due to noxious heavy metals and environmental toxins that tend to accumulate in marine ecosystems.
For simplicity and practicality, many people choose OmegaGenics EPA-DHA 1000 to meet their daily EPA and DHA requirements without having to worry about eating a large amount of fish or ingesting potentially harmful contaminants. Physiologically, EPA and DHA are found in many parts of the human body, especially in cell membranes, making them integral components of membrane phospholipids. In so doing, research suggests that EPA and DHA can promote healthy gene and protein expression, support membrane protein activity, and serve as a reservoir for many biologically important molecules.3 DHA and EPA are also necessary precursors of several metabolites that promote and support general well-being.
TruQuality Purity Guarantee
OmegaGenics formulas undergo extensive third-party analyses to verify optimal purity. Every batch of fish oil is tested by Eurofins— one of the top independent testing labs in the world—to check for numerous contaminants (e.g., heavy metals, pesticides). And additional measures assure that the final product delivers exceptional quality and freshness.
Skin Health & Vitality
The DHA and EPA in fish oil are postulated to be the primary anti-inflammatory nutrients for skin tissue. Research shows that regular use of a fish oil supplement promotes healthy signaling cascades in the skin.10 DHA and EPA also appear to support healthy oxidative stress in skin tissue.
EPA and DHA supplementation has been shown to significantly promote cognitive health.12 DHA and EPA are integral components of neuron membrane phospholipids, thereby supporting cognitive function.*
How Much Fish Oil Should I Be Getting?
Research suggests that a combined intake of EPA and DHA between 1000-3000 mg per day (in a 3:2 ratio of EPA:DHA) is effective to support health and longevity.13 This comes out to 1-2 servings of OmegaGenics EPA-DHA 1000.
