QÜELL Fish Oil® EPA/DHA Plus D provides a bioavailable triglyceride form of fish oil with added vitamin D. The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids continue to emerge, and numerous health organizations worldwide recommend adequate daily intake of EPA and DHA. Data continues to accumulate that supports EPA and DHA in cardiovascular health as well as many other areas, including neurological and vision health.
Omega-3 fatty acids help support cardiovascular health by decreasing serum triglycerides, promoting endothelial cell function and maintaining platelet activity. EPA is also the direct precursor for prostaglandins, which are involved in maintaining the body’s normal inflammatory processes. DHA plays a major role in the structural integrity of neuronal membranes and is essential for neurological and visual development. DHA is vital throughout pregnancy to support fetal brain growth and the formation of the retina and visual cortex. As the most abundant fatty acid in the brain, adequate amounts of DHA are also needed throughout adulthood for ongoing optimal function.
Vitamin D is an essential vitamin that plays many important roles in the proper functioning of the body. It is especially critical in maintaining bone health as it mediates the absorption of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D is fat-soluble, meaning it needs a fat source to be absorbed properly. Therefore, combining vitamin D with omega-3 fatty acids may help facilitate adequate vitamin D absorption into the body.
