OrthWmega Liq (Mango)
1 teaspoon (5 ml) per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
Orthomega® Liquid Fish Oil provides high-intensity omega-3 support with 1.3 g of EPA, 850 mg of DHA and 175 mg of DPA per serving. For those who want to significantly increase omega-3 levels, the natural mango-flavored liquid is the ideal alternative to encapsulated fish oil supplements.
- Supports Cardiovascular Health and Blood Sugar Metabolism
- Supports Cognitive Function and Development
- Supports Healthy Skin, Joints and Connective Tissues
- Increases Visual and Ocular Health
- Helps Maintain a Healthy Inflammatory Response and Strengthen Immune Function
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential cornerstones of human nutrition. We need them for proper health, but cannot produce them on our own. We must therefore consume these fats through diet or supplementation. Since Omega-3 fatty acids are known to benefit cardiovascular health, support healthy brain function and cognition, and help maintain a healthy inflammatory response, achieving the proper balance of omega-3s has become an important health strategy, requiring supplementation for most people. The American Heart Association recommends that those concerned about blood lipids take up to 4 g of omega-3 fatty acids per day.
Orthomega® Liquid is a high-concentration fish oil, providing 1.3 g of EPA, 850 mg of DHA and 175 mg of DPA in natural, bioidentical triglyceride forms for enhanced absorption and better assimilation into the body. It is sourced from cold, fresh waters off the Chilean coast. These waters provide the cleanest, most sustainable source of fish in the world. The Orthomega® Liquid formulation is a convenient method of achieving optimal omega-3 levels in the body. The natural mango-flavored liquid is the ideal alternative to encapsulated fish oil supplements.
Fish Oil Delivery – Triglycerides vs. Ethyl Esters
While the amount of EPA, DHA and DPA provided in a fish oil product is important for efficacy, the type of fish oil delivered is another significant factor in defining fish oil effectiveness. The human body is accustomed to digesting and absorbing EPA, DHA and DPA in the triglyceride form. Even though triglyceride-based fish oils are the preferred form for superior fish oil absorption, the vast majority of fish oil products available on the market are in the ethyl ester form. While ethyl esters allow for higher concentrations of EPA and DHA to be achieved, their unusual structure is resistant to the digestive enzymes (lipases) that enable fat breakdown.
DPA collects in a variety of tissues including the liver, breast, brain, eyes, heart and red blood cells and is the intermediate between EPA and DPA. This, combined with the retroconversion of DHA back to EPA, suggests that DPA may be a reservoir for both EPA and DHA, thus increasing the storage of EPA, DHA and DPA and in turn, the beneficial healthy effects, of omega-3 fatty acids. The roles associated with DHA and EPA in supporting metabolic processes, neurological development, and maintaining inflammatory balance may, in part, be attributed to DPA.
