Benefits of prescription omega-3

All omega-3 preparations are not the same. Those bought in the supermarket, Costco/Walmart, and GNC are very different than prescription omega-3

  • Prescription omega-3 is concentrated fish oil

  • Its uses a 5-step purification process that helps remove mercury and other environmental toxins that can be present in fish oil

  • Each 1-gram capsule contains 465 mg EPA and 375 mg DHA, the active fatty acids proven to lower very high triglycerides

  • It may take up to 4-5 capsules of an omega-3 supplement to achieve the same amount of EPA and DHA found in a 1gm pill of prescription omega-3
