Description: Natural Factors Wild Pacific Salmon Oil Capsules are pure salmon oil, with the fatty acid ratio found in free-swimming salmon. Here's why this is unique: To achieve high ratios of EPA to DHA, commercially available salmon oil capsules are fortified with other fish oils. In the wild, salmon swimming in cold Atlantic or Pacific waters contain only 7 to 8 percent EPA and DHA. One benefit of the Wild Pacific Salmon Oil is that it has the lowest cholesterol levels, in contrast to the higher levels of cholesterol found in farmed salmon oil.

Environmentally-conscious consumers need not worry about salmon stock depletion when taking this product. Natural Factors Wild Pacific Salmon Oil is a value-added by-product of the wild salmon fishery. The oil is extracted from already harvested wild salmon, using parts of the fish that would otherwise be wasted.

Salmon oil is an excellent source of important omega-3 fatty acids. Thousands of studies show the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids for the heart and circulatory system. Two important Omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA), both found liberally in cold water fish such as salmon. These fatty acids help reduce low density lipoproteins (LDLs) and raise levels of good high density lipoproteins (HDLs). These nutrients also reduce blood vessel constriction, lower fibrinogen, (the blood clotting factor), and keep platelets from becoming too sticky. Fish oil may keep arteries from being clogged after a procedure known as balloon angioplasty.

High triglyceride levels are associated with heart disease. Both of these fatty acids lower triglyceride levels.

The essential fatty acids found in fish may help the inflammation associated with arthritis.
