Fish oil can play an important role in the maintenance of your good health and well-being.
One serving of OmegaLife-3 provides 800 milligrams of EPA and 400 milligrams of DHA omega-3 fatty acids (see nutrition information for total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol content).
Fish and fish oil receive increasing amounts of media attention as scientific evidence continues to provide information on their potential health benefits, the most notable being their ability to support normal heart function. In fact, the heart-health benefits of fish oil are so compelling, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has stated that, "Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease."
In addition to its profound heart-health benefits, fish oil also plays a fundamental role in the development and maintenance of brain and nervous functions such as preservation of memory and mental clarity.
In 2002 the FDA approved supplementation of DHA in infant formula. DHA is potentially important in fetal and infant neural development, in that DHA and arachidonic acid have been shown to be incorporated into brain and retinal cell membrane particularly during the third trimester and early infant life. Clinical research also suggests that fish oil can help support proper brain function. Fish oil supports the eyes and helps maintain early development of vision.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Who may benefit from supplementing with fish oils?
A. Anybody that needs support for a healthy heart and circulation. Pregnant and nursing mothers (speak with your doctor to see if this product is right for you before use.)
Q. How can I trust the quality of fish oils?
A. The most concern people have is the risk of fish oil contamination with pollutants such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins and heavy metals such as mercury. These pollutants are genuinely hazardous to health; hence the government has set limits of their levels in foods and supplements, to ensure safety of the public. At Unicity, safety is our flagship and we will not consider buying fish oils that do not meet the specifications set by the government. Every fish oil batch used in our product is tested and must meet our stringent specifications.
Q. How much fish oil can I take?
A. The US National Institutes of Health recommend 650 mg of EPA and DHA per day. One serving of OmegaLife-3 contains 1350 Mg of fish oil with 400 mg DHA and 800 Mg EPA.
Q. I get my omega-3 fatty acids from flaxseed oil, so do I need to take fish oil?
A. Flaxseed provides alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which is an omega-3 fatty acid that can be converted to EPA and DHA through a series of metabolic processes. However, humans have a limited capability to efficiently process this conversion. EPA and DHA from fish oil are directly incorporated into neuronal membranes to enhance their integrity and support neuronal functions.
Q. Is yhere any risk associated with taking fish oils?
A. Fish oil may result in blood thinning, therefore may increase the risk of bleeding, easy bruising and nosebleeds in people who are on blood thinning medications. Fish oil should also be stopped before surgery. Speak to your doctor before use if you have a medical condition.
Q. What's the best way to get fish oil in my diet?
A. Studies have shown that many fish can contain high levels of mercury and other toxins from our polluted oceans. The health risks of these toxins can outweigh the potential benefits of omega-3 fish oil. Currently, it appears that the safest way to get omega-3s in your diet is from high quality, pharmaceutical grade fish oil supplements. The highest quality brands available today refine fish oil through a complex molecular distillation process to filter out any impurities.
