Fish Oil is derived from the tissues of oily fish. It contains the omega-3 fatty acids ranging from a reduction in inflammation and the risk of cardiovascular disease to enhanced fat burning, increased muscle mass and a reduction in exercise induced muscle soreness. 

Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) is a form of omega 3 fatty acid that is found in high levels in fish oil. It is considered to be a ‘long-chain’ (LC) omega-3 because it contains 20 carbons.

The body uses EPA to produce signalling molecules called eicosanoids, which play numerous physiological roles in the body and reduce inflammation.

Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) is a form of omega 3 fatty acid that is found in high levels in fish oil. It is considered to be a ‘very long-chain’ (VLC) omega-3 because it contains 22 carbons. DHA  is a primary structural component of the human brain, cerebral cortex, skin and retina, and plays various important roles in the body, such as aiding circulation and maintaining healthy blood pressure.
