- FREE SHIPPING on ANY PURCHASE OVER $100!
DescriptionMega / : is rich in two Omega-3 Fatty Acids, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) which are recognized for their benefits in supporting cardiovascular health, lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglyceride levels, increasing HDL (good cholesterol), supporting normal blood pressure levels, improving circulation and brain function, bolstering the and reducing inflammation. Each soft gelatin capsule provides 420 milligrams of EPA and 280 milligrams of DHA—more than double that of most fish oil products on the market! And, Mega EPA / DHA uses only the finest fish oil available made from coldwater fish harvested from the Nordic Sea. The oil is then processed using one of the best purification methods available, Molecular Distillation, which is the only current method that can remove heavy metals, PCB’s and other toxins to below detectable limits for human consumption. Compared to most other processing methods that heat the oil to temperatures of up to 250 degrees Celsius for 6 hours, Molecular Distillation takes on 45 seconds at the same temperature helping to preserve the quality of the fish oil and guarantees that no Trans Fats are created. For even better results, combine BCH’s Enteric Coated Mega EPA / DHA with Cardioplex
Supports Healthy Cholesterol Levels
The Mayo Clinic and the American Heart Association both recommendsupplements to help reduce cholesterol. Through research, the American Heart Association has seen benefits of fish oil in subjects with and without coronary disease and cholesterol issues.*
Supports Normalized Triglyceride Levels
The Mayo Clinic as well as several other researchers have found that the benefits of fish oil include lowered triglyceride levels in the blood. This is particularly significant for those taken certain antiretroviral medications which have been shown to increase triglycerides thus making coronary disease and blockages much more common. Fish oil supplements also benefit other systems of the body, so patients with lowered immunity and other symptoms caused by HIV or AIDS may see additional benefits as well.*
Increases Your Focus
Edward Hallowell, M.D., founder of the Hallowell Center for ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) in Massachusetts, recommends omega-3s in the form of fish oil supplements for patients with trouble focusing. He notes that the benefits of fish oil are most noticeable for mental focus, not as much with hyperactivity. Dr. Hallowell indicates that it may take up to six weeks for patients to notice a difference, but that the improvement may be quite substantial.
Two separate small studies revealed that children with ADHD are likely to have lower levels of omega-3 in their blood than children with no ADHD symptoms, and that omega-3s tended to break down easier in children who suffer from ADHD. This could explain why the benefits of fish oil are so noticeable in children with ADHD, and could also stand to reason that adults with ADHD might see similar benefits of fish oil.*
Improves Brain Function In Babies
Studies have shown that the benefits of fish oil are numerous for infants when taken by a pregnant woman.Not only do fish oil supplements promote brain development and macular health, the specific benefits observed through research are quite astonishing. Pregnant women who took a high quality fish oil supplement had babies with higher IQs and fewer learning disorders, and were less likely to develop mental retardation or cognitive delays.
Additionally, the Associated Press reports that some nutritionists believe that omega-3s are the primary building block for human intelligence, so babies who receive omega-3s through fish oil supplements when mom is pregnant and nursing are statistically likely to be more intelligent children and adults.*
The benefits of fish oil regarding bipolar disorder are significant in that those with milder forms of bipolar disorder are often misdiagnosed with depression, and prescribed antidepressants, which not only have unpleasant side effects but can actually worsen the symptoms of bipolar disorder. Additionally, those with milder forms of bipolar disorder that are properly diagnosed have limited treatment options available, and many have different yet still unpleasant side effects.
Jim Phelps, M.D., a leading mental illness researcher and respected psychiatrist, observed these benefits of fish oil in his bipolar patients and noted that their manic and depressive symptoms were greatly improved.*
Several independent studies in the US and Australia indicate that not only are there benefits of fish oil when eyes are developing in babies in utero, but that adults taking fish oil are less prone to macular degeneration as they age.*
Reduces Inflammation In The Body & Helps With Joint Pain Management
One of the many benefits of Omega -3 Complex supplementation is reduced inflammation in the body. Inflammation can present itself in many ways, from lupus to thyroid inflammatory disease to psoriasis. While the benefits of fish oil include relief from chronic inflammation, they also help those who suffer from other types of joint pain including osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis.The Albany Medical College conducted a research study that confirms fish oil may be used for pain relief. The researchers also specifically suggested those seeking relief from joint pain should seek pure, non-synthetic fish oil supplements like BCH’s Mega– Omega-3 Complex to experience the greatest relief.*
Supports Healthy Looking Skin
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are two of the essential fatty acids (EFA) provided by fish oil supplements, and EPA is directly related to skin health. The Journal of Lipid Research announced in 2005 that a few benefits of fish oil regarding skin condition are oil production regulation, increased hydration, reduced acne and fewer wrinkles. EPA has also been proven to help protect our skin from UVA sun damage, which causes wrinkles, lines and permanent skin damage.*
Provides Relief From Crohn’s Disease And Colitis
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are two digestive diseases that cause much suffering for those they afflict. Often, the treatments are extremely expensive and can include surgery to remove sections of the intestines and colon, which is painful and life-altering. Benefits of fish oil when taken to treat Crohn’s disease and colitis have been found in that the fish oil actually heals the ulcers in the colon and intestines. This is a huge leap in the search for a cure for these terrible diseases.*
Helps Treat Ulcers
The University of Maryland Medical Center recommends the benefits of fish oil to individuals suffering from peptic ulcers, as the fish oil reduces inflammation and boosts immunity to prevent recurrence of the ulcers. Fish oil may also reduce depression, anxiety and stress, which are sometimes contributing factors for peptic ulcer development.*
