Andrew Lessman's Essential Omega-3 is our ultra-pure, high potency blend of Omega-3 oils uniquely delivered with absolutely NO fishy aftertaste. Our Omega-3s exist in their most active, natural form and NOT as inferior ethyl esters. Omega-3s are absolutely essential for our good health, yet they cannot be made by the body, so their benefits are only available from cold-water fish or a formula like Essential Omega-3. Research has shown that diets rich in Omega-3 oils are associated with superior heart, brain, circulatory and general health; yet sadly, the American diet delivers alarmingly low levels of these precious fatty acids. Our Essential Omega-3 is a uniquely concentrated source of both fish and flaxseed oils, delivering our highest levels of DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid), as well as DPA (Docosapentaenoic Acid). Typical Omega-3 formulas focus on EPA, which is less costly to provide, whereas our Omega-3s target vital DHA, which is essential for brain and eye function. In fact, the highest functioning areas of the brain and the most critical parts of the eye (macula and retina) contain and require ultra-high levels of DHA. Although fish oil supplements have long been praised for their countless health benefits, they are equally well-known for their aftertaste and potential contaminants; however, our Essential Omega-3 allows you to enjoy all the benefits of fish oil with NO mercury, NO contaminants, NO stomach upset and NO fishy aftertaste.
