Omega-3 Max contains two important fatty acids: EPA and DHA. These fatty acids are considered “essential” because the body cannot make them, so EPA and DHA must be obtained from the diet. EPA and DHA play important roles in various biological processes. The fatty acids help support a healthy immune system, promote healthy skin and haircoat, and optimize heart, joint, and brain function.
Omega-3 Max is formulated with eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids. These essential fatty acids have many important biological functions that include supporting the body’s natural immune response, optimizing cardiovascular function and maintaining normal lipid metabolism, and promoting healthy mobility, vision, and skin and haircoat.1-4 EPA and DHA also support cognitive function by maintaining cellular health and communication within the nervous system.5,6
