Omega-3 essential fatty acids, considered as "good fats", are long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). They form the structural components of cell membranes, support healthy joint and heart function. The Omega-3 fatty acids are also required for a variety of critical metabolic processes. They are classified as "essential" because they are crucial for human health but the body is not able to manufacture them. Hence they must be obtained from Omega-3 rich food sources or otherwise from good dietary supplements. Omega-3 fatty acids are known to be some of the most important essential nutrients today. Several researches suggest that these essential fats may help promote heart and joint health. Unfortunately, most people do not get sufficient amounts of omega-3 fatty acids from food. This leads to serious mental and health issues. The American Heart Association recommends eating about 240 grams of high quality fatty fish twice a week for adults to increase their intake of omega-3 fatty acids. You may be amoung the many individuals who understand the important health benefits of consuming more healthy omega 3 fatty acids in your diet, but are either not getting the right kinds of foods or are vegetarian or averse to the taste of fish. MegaMax Omega 3 takes away these issues from the many in your plate and provides the highest quality of Omega-3 that is highly rich in the most effective form of Omega-3, which are EPA and DHA. EPA or Eicosapentaenoic Acid and DHA or Docosahexaenoic Acid are the forms of Omega-3 that are readily usable by the body and do not need any conversion before they are used. MegaMax's Omega-3 fish oil supplement for men and women contain 550 mg of EPA and 350 mg of DHA of the total 1000 mg of Omega 3. This means 90% of the Omega 3 in each capsule is in the readily usable form. Each softgel capsule provides 900mg of EPA and DHA, which is at least 3x or Three Times or Triple the strength or more of an ordinary Omega 3 capsule.
