Natures Aid Fish Oil 1000mg
Two Danish scientists, Jorn Dyerberg and H.O. Bang travelled to Greenland to study Eskimos in their own environment. These two scientists discovered that although Eskimos ate large quantities of fat they did not suffer heart problems. This was attributed to the high proportion of fish in their diets and to the unique nature of the polyunsaturated essential fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
found in many cold-water fish.
Essential fatty acids like EPA and DHA are termed â€˜essentialâ€TM because they are needed by the body, but cannot be produced. They must be obtained from the diet or supplements.
The Benefits of Fish Oil:
Joint Health – trials show that Fish Oil helps people with rheumatoid arthritis, having an anti-inflammatory and immune modulating effect.

Brain development and health – the EPA and DHA in fish oils are essential for brain development in the foetus and infant and for efficient normal function throughout life.
