Reasons for taking this product?
Omega-3s have demonstrated their benefits in a large number of clinical studies. This Triple Action product targets the maintenance of:
- Cognitive functions (the brain).
- A healthy cardiovascular system (maintenance of a healthy heart and prevention of heart diseases).
- Eye health (prevention of age-related macular degeneration, which can lead to blindness).
Omega-3s are critical for our health at any age. To reach the recommended daily intakes of omega-3s, we must eat fatty fish (tuna, salmon, trout, herring, mackerel) two to three times a week. This diet provides the equivalent of 500mg of omega-3s daily. This product provides 600 mg per softgel.
However, if you have been diagnosed with heart disease, your daily intake should reach 800 to 1000 mg of omega-3 daily, or the double of those weekly servings of fatty fish!
Who will benefit from this product?
People that do not succeed at eating 2 to 3 servings of fatty fish weekly.
People experiencing burping or fishy aftertaste when taking regular omega-3 products.
People with heart disease who wish to prevent potential complications.
Pregnant and breastfeeding women, since the brain, eyes and nerves of the child require DHA to develop normally. They should take this product from the beginning of pregnancy until the end of breastfeeding. Of note, Health Canada recommends that pregnant women limit their fish consumption to once a week, in order to reduce heavy metal intake. Supplements with an NPN ensure that the product is free of heavy metals.
People at risk of developing age-related macular degeneration.
Benefits & Recommended for
Enteric softgels to prevent fishy aftertaste. These softgels resist gastric acids and release the omega-3s inside the intestine. This property also ensures more omega-3 fatty acids reach the intestine intact for an optimal efficacy.
A natural tangerine-lime flavour has been added to further reduce the risk of fishy aftertaste.
Natural vitamin E (10 IU) ensures freshness by protecting the omega-3s from oxidation.
Every Adrien Gagnon omega product is tested for more than 95 contaminants (heavy metals, bacteria, PCBs, pesticides, oxidation, etc.) and must pass strict pharmaceutical quality and purity standards.
Precautions & Adverse Effects
None has been found to this date.
For people taking anticoagulants, a daily dosage of 3,000 mg of omega-3s may interact with their medication. This product provides 600mg per softgel and is thus safe at the recommended dosage of 3 softgels daily.
