Eskimo-3 was inspired by the original research into the outstanding heart health of the indigenous circumpolar people, who, despite consuming high amounts of fat, have exceptionally good cardiovascular health. Researchers discovered that their diet was rich in particularly beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids: EPA and DHA.
Omega-3s play a variety of roles in the body, but they’re best known for supporting heart, vision and brain health. They help the heart by reducing triglycerides, reducing blood pressure and reducing inflammation.
Historically it was thought that EPA was the Omega-3 which conveyed all the protective cardiovascular properties, but recently DHA has been found to have its own independent, unique properties e.g. DHA on its own has been shown to lower triglycerides.
DHA is prominent in the new approved health claims:
- DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal blood triglyceride levels –2g daily
- DHA and EPA contribute to the maintenance of normal blood pressure – 2g daily
- DHA & EPA contribute to the maintenance of normal blood triglyceride concentrations – 2g daily
Formulated by renowned Swedish Cardiologist Tom Saldeen, Eskimo-3 (with EPA and DHA) has been clinically proven to reduce triglycerides by 64% and increase HDL cholesterol by 21% in 6 months. Participants were given 15ml Eskimo-3 daily which contains more than the recommended 2g EPA and DHA as recommended by the EU.
Eskimo-3 is an omega-3 rich oil of legendary purity, freshness and stability, from sustainable sources, and full traceability and quality control.
