The brain is a large repository for the Essential Long Chain Omega-3 Fats, EPA and DHA. These fats play an important structural role as part of cellular membranes in your brain as well as policing and quenching excessive inflammation. In addition to playing key structural roles in the brain, EPA and DHA are readily converted by the body into elite protective compounds called Resolvins and Neuroprotectin which help the body recovery from high levels of inflammation and protect neurons from damage due to inflammation and oxidative stress, respectively.
Because most people don’t eat 3-4 servings of oily fish like salmon each week, supplementing with Essential LCFA ensures that you are getting ideal levels of these key omega-3 fats to optimize mental performance, promote positive mood, and support memory.
We believe in ethical sourcing and sustainability of all of our products. That is why the omega-3s ground in Essential LCFA are sourced from 100% wild caught, deep seas sardines and anchovies. Sourcing omega-3 fats from deep sea fish such as sardines and anchovies that are lower in the food chain allow us collect some of the purest fish oil available in the naturally occurring triglyceride form. Fish oil derived from larger species runs the risk of having higher levels of mercury and other contaminants.
The omega-3s found in Essential LCFA are purified with the second generation omega-3 purification process known as - molecular distillation. This process is completed as low temperatures to ensure maximum stability of the fatty acids. It allows for the removal of heavy metals, dioxins, PCBs, and other toxins leaving an ultra-pure fish oil with virtually zero contaminants.
