EPA and DHA to support cardiovascular and brain health:

  • Helps to reduce serum triglycerides in adults
  • Supports cognitive health and brain function
  • Provides 1080 mg of EPA and 720 mg DHA per daily dose

SEP EFA is a blend of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA that helps support cardiovascular health. Research indicates that EPA and DHA decrease triglycerides by altering gene expression in the liver; they lower fat production by increasing fatty acid metabolism through PPARα stimulation.1,2 This decrease in triglycerides leads to a reduction in very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) cholesterol production, molecules that transport lipids throughout the body. 2,3 In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving 60 hyperlipidemic adults, 3 weeks of daily supplementation with 1.4 g total of EPA and DHA significantly lowered serum triglycerides by approximately 20% when compared to baseline values.4 DHA is also the most abundant omega-3 fatty acid in the brain: supplementation with fish oils has been associated with the maintenance of neuron function in the hippocampus, a region of the brain associated with memory.5 In 36 elderly adults with mild cognitive impairment, daily supplementation with 1.75 g of DHA and EPA for 12 months led to significant increases in short-term and working memory.6

WHY CHOOSE GENESTRA FISH OILS:

Natural triglyceride form: NEO-3 and CRYO-3 processed fish oils contain NO ethyl esters (EPA and DHA bound to alcohol molecules) nor additional chemical processing.

Exclusive natural DHA/EPA enrichment process: enriches omega-3 yield, preserves triglyceride form, extracts toxic contaminants to virtually undetectable levels, delivers “”cleaner”” taste.

Independent batch testing: Surpasses international quality standards for: heavey metals (mercury, lead, arsenic, cadmium); pesticides, various chlorinated phenolic products (PCBs); dioxins and furans; PCDDs and PDCFs.

Freshness: Prevents oxidation, maintains stability at time of manufacture and throughout shelf life.

Great taste: Less oily, exceptional freshness, brimming with natural fruit flavours to ensure no fishy smell or aftertaste!

Building sustainability: Compliance with ethical fishing organizations and regulated fishery partners.
