What are the best vitamins and supplements for a healthy heart?

What is Omega-3?

Omega-3 fatty acids, found naturally in cold-water fish, krill fish, and seaweed, have been shown to support a healthy heart and brain, as well as maintain healthy blood pressure. A diet rich in Omega-3s is important for heart health because the body doesn’t produce those essential fatty acids on its own. But as processed foods become more common, most people just don’t get enough Omega-3s through their meals alone. Test

Our solution is MegaRed® — keep reading to learn what makes it the smart choice for getting more heart healthy Omega-3s.

3 Markers of Heart Health

Omega-3 can help support several important factors related to your heart health:

Omega-3 Index

The

Omega-3 Index is a measurement of the amount of Omega-3 fatty acids found in your red blood cells. Recent studies have shown that a rise in the Omega-3 Index may be associated with better cardiovascular health, not to mention joint and brain health.

The Omega-3 index can play an important role in positively influencing the other two indicators. Omega-3s are found naturally in krill fish, cold-water fish, and seaweed. While they are important for bodily function, the body cannot create them on its own. They must be obtained by eating foods rich in Omega-3s or by taking a supplement such as MegaRed.

Talk to your doctor about your Omega-3 index today, and start keeping these three important indicators of your heart health in check.

C-reactive Protein

C-reactive protein (CRP) is made in the liver and can be measured in the blood. CRP levels in the blood are sensitive to inflammation in the body. CRP is also an independent risk factor for poor cardiovascular health. Research has shown adequate intake of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA support healthy CRP levels and cardiovascular health.

Triglycerides

Triglycerides are a type of fat found in the blood. A high level of triglycerides (above 150 mg/dl) can worsen cardiovascular health. Triglycerides are formed when you eat more calories than your body needs. A healthy diet and regular exercise can help regulate the amount of triglycerides in your bloodstream. Additionally, studies have shown that increasing your Omega-3 index can help support healthy triglycerides as well.

Using Omega-3

Omega-3 suppliments come in the form of pills that are taken orally. Fish Oil pills are large and need to be taken multiple times for a normal dose. MegaRed Krill oil pills are small and are taken once per day.

† Supportive, but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. ♦The MegaRed 3X formulation uses a self microemulsifying drug delivery system (SMEDDS) technology to support high absorption. Studies show that applying the SMEDDS technology to highly concentrated fish oils dramatically improve the absorption of both EPA and DHA
