Description

Fish oil is used for a wide range of conditions. It is most often used for conditions related to the heart and blood system.  Fish oil is also used to support healthy blood pressure or triglyceride levels (fats related to cholesterol).‡

Fish may have earned its reputation as “brain food” because some people eat fish to help support healthy cognitive function and memory.‡

Some people use fish oil for dry eyes, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a very common condition in older people that can lead to serious sight problems.‡

Progressive Labs EPA-DHA Super™ is an ultra-pure, molecularly distilled fish oil concentrate that has been tested for environmental contaminants (heavy metals, PCBs, dioxins and furans), microbial contaminants, oxidation and rancidity.

Good source of essential fatty acids from marine sources which provides 300mg EPA (eicospentaenoic acid) and  200mg DHA (docoshexaenoic acid) per softgel.
