Blackmores Fish Oil Odourless 1000mg 200cap
Blackmores Fish Oil 1000 provides omega-3s to support the body’s processes for dealing with inflammation & swelling in the joints & other tissues. Fish oil also supports the health of the eyes, brain, heart & blood vessels.
Blackmores Fish Oil 1000 is a rich source of the omega-3 essential fatty acids EPA and DHA. Fatty acids are incorporated into every cell membrane in the body in the form of compounds called phospholipids. Cell membranes play the vital role of regulating what goes into, and what comes out of, each cell.
For example, when a cell membrane is functioning optimally, it retains vital nutrients and electrolytes, has the ability to communicate with other cells, and is responsive to hormones.
The types of phospholipids present in the body influence the integrity and fluidity of the cell membranes. Cell membranes that are predominantly comprised of phospholipids from essential fatty acids such as those found in Blackmores Fish Oil 1000 function more effectively than those derived from saturated fats or trans fatty acids.
Omega-3 fatty acids like those found in Blackmores Fish Oil 1000 are used in the production of leukotrienes and prostaglandins – compounds that are important in the body’s processes for dealing with inflammation and swelling in the joints and other tissues. In this way, they support healthy joint function, flexibility and mobility.
Fish oil also supports a healthy cardiovascular system by helping to maintain appropriate levels of triglycerides (fats) in the blood, and by helping to maintain appropriate blood viscosity (thickness).
