Natural Factors RxOmega-3 is a highly concentrated form of omega-3 fatty acids extracted from a safe, pure source to support heart health, reduce serum triglycerides, promote cognitive health, and ease the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.
Contrary to popular belief - and fad diets - fats are integral factors in the maintenance of health. Many diets lack essential fatty acids (EFAs), polyunsaturated fats with countless benefits for the cardiovascular, nervous, and musculoskeletal systems, as well as hormone production and cellular repair. They are "essential" because, although the body cannot make them, they are vital to health.
The most important EFAs are omega-3 and omega-6. The ideal omega-3 to omega-6 ratio is 1:4, but typical North American diets provide a 1:20 ratio, or even 1:30. Omega-6s generate inflammation, while omega-3s reduce it. Natural Factors RxOmega-3 products provide high levels of the omega-3s EPA and DHA to balance dietary intake.
