Fish Oil contains Essential Fatty Acids. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are the good fats that our bodies need for cell repair, blood clotting, regulating inflammation, neural development, immunity and more. We need EFAs for normal growth and development. These fatty acids are called essential because we cannot make them in our bodies. We must obtain them through the diet.
There are two types of EFAs: Omega 3 and Omega 6.
In the typical American diet, most people get plenty of Omega 6. Sources of Omega 6 include vegetable oils, refined oils used in snacks and fast food, grains, nuts, meats and eggs.
Fish Oil as the Best Source of Omega 3
Sources of Omega 3 are not as abundant in our modern diet. Omega 3 fatty acids are found in such foods as soybeans, walnuts, and broccoli. But the best sources of Omega 3 in amounts that have the most impact on health are found in cold water fish like salmon, herring, and tuna. Most people, however, do not consume enough fish on a regular basis to affect their Omega 3 blood levels significantly. Omega 600 Fish Oil contains oil from coldwater fish and offers the precise amount of the Omega 3 components EPA and DHA to meet optimum requirements. Fish Oil from Meridian Naturals

It's All About Balance
You need both Omega 6 and Omega 3, but in the right balance: ideally your intake ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 should be between 1:1 and 4:1, but our modern diet has thrown this ratio out of balance. The ratio for an average person consuming a Western diet is between 10:1 and 25:1. That means most people consume up to 25 times the amount of Omega 6 as Omega 3! For EFAs to do their job, this ratio needs to get back into balance. Taking Omega 600 Fish Oil can help you achieve this balance.
I already take vitamins. Why do I need Fish Oil?
EFAs were once classified as Vitamin F because, like other vitamins, theyÂre necessary for good health, proper development, and immune support. And, like vitamins, they have to be obtained through the diet. But when they were re-classified as fats they werenÂt associated with good health the same way regular vitamins were.
We now know our bodies need both Omega 6 and Omega 3Âin the correct ratioÂin order to function properly. And theyÂre as important as vitamins for good health.
But chances are you are not getting enough Omega 3 in your diet.
This Omega 3 and Omega 6 imbalance is believed to be responsible for the increase in chronic inflammatory conditions affecting people today.
Signs of Deficiency in Omega 3
- Dry, itchy skin
- Inflammatory skin conditions like acne, rosacea, or psoriasis
- Brittle hair and/or nails
- Frequent colds
- Stiffness and tenderness in joints
- Problems with attention or concentration
- Depression or mood disorders
- Poor endurance
- Hot flashes or painful menstruation
Did You Know Fish Oil is Heart Healthy!
The American Heart Association recommends consuming fatty fish like trout or salmon at least twice a week. Fatty fish contain high amounts of the two kinds of Omega 3 fatty acids found in Omega 600 Fish Oil, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Omega 3 fatty acids help support a healthy heart.* Omega 600 Fish Oil from Meridian Naturals is a convenient, inexpensive way to get the proper amount of Omega 3 support good heart health.* Plus our formula contains twice the EPA and DHA as found in most brands of fish oil.
How Does Omega 600 Fish Oil Work?
Our cell membranes are made up of fatty acids. The cell membrane allows nutrients to enter the cell, and ensures that waste products are quickly removed from the cell. Omega 3 consists of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are direct precursors for prostaglandins which are responsible for such processes as inflammation, blood flow, and nerve transmission.
EPA and DHA are also responsible for cell membrane fluidity, integrity, and communication between cells. Omega 3 ensures that all the cells in your body work at optimum levels: so they get rid of waste effectively, are healthy enough to fight infection, and communicate with other cells for good mental and physical health. When your cells are healthy, your whole body is healthy. Try Meridian NaturalsÂ® Omega 600 Fish Oil to get your body back in balance.
