OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS
Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are important fatty acids for humans and their dog and cat companions because they cannot be made in the body. The only source of EPA and DHA for these species is through the diet and/or supplementation. Daily supplementation with Omega-3 Fatty Acids helps support optimal health for your pet companion.
EPA and DHA are necessary structural components of cell membranes. These omega-3 fatty acids maintain the cell membrane fluidity and permeability needed for healthy, functioning cells.
EPA and DHA are found abundantly in cold-water fish. Flax seed oil contains ALA, another omega-3 fatty acid that requires the body to first convert ALA to EPA and DHA before utilization. Humans and dogs have limited ability to make this conversion, while cats have even less ability to make this conversion. Therefore, supplementation with high-quality omega-3 fish oil is recommended for humans, dogs and cats.
The omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) found in fish oil help support:
One teaspoon contains: Crude fat(min.) 99.4%, Moisture (max.) 0.01, Total Omega-3 Fatty Acids (min) 31%, Eicosapentoenoic Acid (EPA)(min.) 15%, Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) (min.) 9%
Other ingredients: fish oil, d-alpha tocopherol (a preservative)
