Not all ;sh oils
are created equal.
From bene;ts beyond heart health support – such as support
for the immune system and bones – to the importance of
where your ;sh oil comes from and how it is produced, it’s
vital to be informed about this amazing gift from nature before
you choose the ;sh oil that’s right for you and your family.*
Why Supplement with Fish Oil?
a ;sh oil supplement in a special softgel with an enteric
coating not only helps to ensure that the supplement
will be absorbed in the intestines instead of destroyed in
the stomach, but also helps to knock out
the whole “;shiness” factor as well.
How Much Fish Oil Is Right For Me?
Busy schedules, meetings, time with the kids, extra hours at
the of;ce – all can have an effect on what, how and when
you eat. The human body does not produce
the “good fats” found in ;sh – they can
only be provided by food or dietary
supplements. And rushed meals don’t
leave time for healthy ;sh.
The omega- 3 fatty acids found in ;sh
oil are one of the building blocks of
human cells. Cell membranes are
formed by these needed fats; without
them, immune response and proper
cell growth may be compromised.
What Goes into a High-Quality Fish Oil?
With so many types of ;sh oil to choose from, how do you
decide which one is right for you? Some ;sh oil supplements are made with whatever ;sh are currently available,
even shell;sh. But the highest-quality ;sh oil comes from
manufacturers such as Nature’s Bounty® , which uses only
fresh, cold-water ;sh from trusted sources.
Environmental concerns should also weigh in to your
decision. Mercury and other heavy metals can appear in
even the cleanest of ;shing waters, so you want a ;sh oil
that has been puri;ed to eliminate these harmful
contaminants. A ;sh oil produced under strict manufacturing guidelines, laboratory tested and guaranteed for
purity and potency is the only one you should take.
Some people who take ;sh oil stop soon after starting,
complaining of heartburn, bad aftertaste and what is not
affectionately referred to as “;sh burps.” However, delivering
No matter how many milligrams of ;sh oil you might be
taking, the important omega- 3 fatty acid content can vary
widely. You might ;nd yourself taking several capsules two or
three times a day just to get the omega-3s you need.
Fortunately, an advanced process used by Nature’s Bounty
yields a high concentration of omega-3s in just one potent soft-
gel. This makes taking a ;sh oil supplement quick and
convenient. Have one with any meal of the day and you’ve
given yourself 1400 mg of ;sh oil puri;ed to contain 980 mg of
DHA and EPA omega- 3 fatty acids combined. That’s good for
the health of your heart and for maintaining vascular and
cellular health.* That’s probably why they call ;sh “brain food.”
Omega- 3 Fatty Acids in Popular Foods
You could try to eat enough omega- 3 food sources to get the
bene;ts of one Nature’s Bounty maximum-strength softgel
– but could you stomach that? Adding a ;sh oil supplement
to your daily diet helps ensure you’re getting enough of the
omega- 3 you need for optimal health.*
