NOW Ultra Omega-3 contains significant amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, have been clearly shown to have a positive effect on many areas in your body. There are so many published research papers n the subject that even the medical community recognizes the definitive benefits to increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids.

NOW Ultra Omega-3 contains a special concentrate of fish body oils from deep, cold water fish that are especially rich in the important Omega-3's EPA and DHA.

Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) is the chemical in fish oil that has numerous benefits including being very anti-inflammatory, making it great for joint and other body pains, the cardiovascular system, lowers triglycerides, and is great for hair and skin health.
  High levels of EPA have a beneficial influential on behavior and mood.

Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) is the type of fat that the brain is largely composed of, and thus, DHA is brain nutrition. It's to our brains as calcium is to our bones, and in fact, optimal infant brain and eye development and function depends on it. The latest science clearly demands another important nutrient be added to the diet of expecting mothers: DHA.  It also supports healthy brain function and promotes a positive mood and well-being.

1. Heart Disease: Studies that found the EPA and DHA have been shown to reduce high cholesterol and high blood pressure. It is especially effective at lowering triglyceride levels, which are the fats in the blood, and to lower the risk of death, heart attack, stroke, and abnormal heart rhythms. Fish oil also appears to help prevent and treat  hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) by slowing the development of plaque and blood clots, that clog arteries.

2. Memory: Omega-3 fatty acids are in high concentrations in the brain, affecting memory, concentration, and performance. DHA especially is the type of fat that the brain is largely composed of, and thus, DHA is brain nutrition. It's to our brains as calcium is to our bones. It is especially critical that infants don’t have low concentrations because they can develop vision and nerve issues. Low levels of DHA have been linked with poorer reading, memory and behavioral problems in healthy school-age children.

3. Arthritis: Fish oils have

 strong anti-inflammatory properties that are very helpful for both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. They form the building blocks for prostaglandins, that regulate the immune system and fight inflammation. Many studies have shown that fish oil reduces morning stiffness and tender joints in those with rheumatoid arthritis, allowing them to reduce their NSAID use.

4. Mental health: Some studies have shown positive effects on people suffering with depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. One randomized controlled trial shows omega-3 decreased anxiety and inflammation. John Hopkins Medical reported that fish oil omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce the effects of major depression.

There are many other benefits of omega-3, including skin health and vision.  The Mayo clinic reported that The risk of age-related macular degeneration might be reduced by taking omega-3s. They reduce dry eye symptoms, including burning, stinging, and visual disturbances. For this reason, many eye doctors now are recommending fish oil supplements for their patients who suffer from dry eyes.
